SLV is the perfect place to retire!

SLV is not one of your routine retirement villages, in fact, it is not a retirement village at all. There are two championship golf courses, an incredible lake, and miles of biking and walking trails. Our biggest complaint is there's not enough time in one day to do all of the activities that are available here, This is THE place for the young at heart!...

Perfect Place to Retire

This is the only place with which I am familiar where we have First Responders, Neighborlink, caring and friendly neighbors, two beautiful golf courses, lots of water and many other amenities. What more can I say? I love it here. ...

A great place to live!

From our very first visit to SLV, we knew we wanted to retire here because of its natural beauty, all the amenities and the sense of community. We came here from Illinois not knowing anyone. From day one, everyone we met was so friendly and helpful. There are so many activities, clubs and fun events to participate in,but because SLV is located in a beautiful serene area with its lake and woods, ...

Forget "WV"... This here is "Almost Heaven"! :)

There's nothing like being taken in and being loved by new neighbors who become instant friends! The number of great friends we've developed here in our short 6-months we've been here totally overwhelms the number of friends we ever had after living over 40 years in IL. We came for the Golf and Fishing, and ALL the recreational stuff to do that you could ever imagine... and of course the year-ro...

Savannah Lakes Village is an awesome place to live! And

Savannah Lakes Village is absolutely the best kept secret that SC has. We "found" the area by having met people at Wesley Commons in Greenwood who had moved from SLV due to their need, or spouse's, for care. They had such positive comments about McCormick and SLV that we wanted to check it out for ourselves. We actually bought our home a week after our first visit. Everyone we have met has welcome...

Boater's Paradise

WOW, what a wonderful lake!!! We are avid boaters and moved from a small lake in Michigan. Water was small (240 acres), cold (lucky to hit 80 degrees), and frozen for nearly 4 months of the year, so boat was out of the water for at least 6 months! We are now enjoying year round boating on 70,000 acres with water that is well into the 80's for about 4 months of the year. The scenery is breathtaking...

I can't believe I am so lucky to be able to live in this nature's paradise!

My husband says it best. He says it every morning when he gets up "I hope we don't get discovered today"! Seriously we have lived here almost 20 years and have never lived in a more caring community! There are so many activities to join, a beautiful lake, two championship golf courses, tennis courts, a recreation center, walking trails, etc. All this is in the middle of a national forest - so ...

Something for Everyone!

We chose SLV because of the amazing opportunities for enpveryone. Since moving here, I took up golf, learned bridge, found a group to travel with to Africa and China, and even got a boat! Retirement in SLV is as active as you would like it to be! My husband and I can't get over what a great choice we made! This is not what we thought retirement would be, it's so much fun..always on the go!...

Wonderful place to live!

This is,without a doubt, the best place i have ever lived! There are so many things to do, we are close to larger cities but we have a country atmosphere. The most wonderful thing about SLV are the people who live here. It is hard to imagine a family of over 2,000 people, but that is exactly how I feel about my neighbors....

Beautiful place to live

We are new to Savannah Lakes Village (SLV) but in the short time we have lived here we are in love with SLV. This was the best move we made and can't wait to see what the future brings here for us. Everyone is so nice and helpful if you need it. The peacefulness of the village and the beauty are wonderful. There is something for everyone here. Again a very beautiful place to live. ...

I've never regretted my decision to live here

In 1989, we bought our lot as we were traveling to Florida to look at retirement properties. This community offers all the amenities at an affordable price, but it's the people that make this Village so special. Everyone is friendly and caring and we felt that we just belonged to the best "family" ever. ...

Grow here, not grow old.

This village offers anything a person might desire, except for traffic and shopping malls. It has more than fulfilled our retirement needs. As our abilities and interests have changed over the years, we have been able to seamlessly move into learning new activities, meeting new people and revising our lifestyle without relocating. SLV is a caring community without being overly restrictive or de...

Climate, Lake, golf courses, setting and peopleople make SLV exceptional.

We built our home in 1992-93. In the beginning there were very few paved roads and we all felt like Pioneers and lived in that spirit . We gave and accepted help from everyone, any time. The community has grown and grown, roads were paved, a new golf-course was added, so were tennis courts, outside swimming pool and many other amenities too numerous to list individually. Naturally the creation ...

Former Detroiters Love Savannah Lakes Village

During our early morning and late night dog walks in Savannah Lakes Village, we bask in the pleasantly warm breezes and marvel at the millions of stars twinkling above us. We relish the peace and quiet interrupted only by the sounds of nature-–hooting owls, frolicking deer, chirping crickets, rustling pine trees, and the antiphonal calls of Carolina wrens. During the day we can play the Village g...

My beautiful back yard

I am 58 years old & my husband & I have retired to SLV. What we have found is beautiful golf courses, a beautiful lake, nature. The most wonderful thing we have found is a sense of community that we had growing up. Everyone here has been so kind & giving. The medical we have needed has been excellent & the safe feeling we have again reminds us of our childhood. We have been here 6 years and do not...

A perfect place for a vacation home or retirement

I am far from being retired, but I love coming up on the weekends to just relax and enjoy the lake. I own a house in the interior and drive my golf cart to a rented slip in a community dock. It is the perfect set up for me and my family. The golf courses are great, the food at the clubhouses is really good, and I find the people to be friendly where ever I go. ...

So glad to be here!!

We came to SLV just to look on a quest to find a lake home/community to relocate to. It was a spur of the moment trip down and even though we visited 3 other nearby lake areas, SLV was the one that caught our attention. That was in April 2015 and we moved down from Michigan in July 2015. Boom...done! There is so much beauty here and so many things to do and wonderful people who are easy to make f...

Paradise on Earth

When my husband and I would return from traveling we always say "why do we ever go anyplace else." You just can't beat our golf courses, huge unbusy Lake Thurmond and the countless amenities. Most importantly though are the people. It's like a family and when a crisis hits there is unbelievable support. I come from Florida and I wouldn't live anyplace but Savannah Lakes Village. You can be as a...

The best community ever!

I have owned property in SLV for the past five years. We visit atleast once a year and will build our new home this coming fall 2013. I cannot wait!

Super people, wonderful area, plenty to do if you want!

After looking at property all over the U.S. for several years, we ended up buying our first lot in Savannah Lakes Village in 1990. Subsequently we sold that, bought another, sold that, and finally found the one that best fit our changing needs and home design. After retiring in 2000 we moved into SLV, built our home and have never regretted our decision once. The community, countryside, wildlif...

Retirement Heaven

From the moment we moved here we knew we had found "home" again. The day we moved in one of our neighbors saw my husband and son struggling with a huge workbench. He stopped his truck and helped. It has been like that ever since. Despite some differences, as there always are, living here is as close to being surrounded by family as it gets. The beauty of it all continues to be that we are free...
