Michael and Cathleen Maggard

My husband and I moved from Central California to be near our families.  We were not in the market for a 55 plus gated community, but one day when we were in the area looking at homes I saw the Orchid sign and after talking my husband into just looking, we found that we actually really liked the homes, location, and the price values.  After talking with Mary Ellen who we felt comfortable with right away and going over the details of what the community would offer to us and the cost and values of the homes  we decided this was a great place to live.

We are so grateful we made the decision to purchase a home with Orchid.  We just love it here and have met so many wonderful friends and also started a “meet and greet” once a month so the community can get to know one another which has been very successful and a lot of fun!  One of the great parts of our home is when we look out of our kitchen window we can view beautiful Idyllwild as this is where my husband and I were married 27 years ago.  I am also excited to share my sister and her husband have fallen in with Orchid too and will be moving here in May.
