RVers Getting a Warm Welcome From Gardens RV Village HOA President
Hello! I understand you may be considering a visit to the Gardens RV Village. As president of the homeowners association, I’d like to invite you to stay a while and meet some of our neighbors. I know you will find it a very welcoming, friendly place.
Gardens residents are pretty active people: Besides our love of travel and RVing, most of us are passionate about exploring other interests, too. From the outdoor types who like to motorcycle through the countryside, play golf, or hone their pickleball techniques; to those involved in arts and crafts who build model airplanes, restore antique vehicles, or become champion quilters, you name it! There’s a wide diversity of interests here.
And, of course, we are HUGE on get-togethers. After all, we’re RVers! There’s an unwritten agreement in the Gardens: If your RV garage door is open, that’s an invitation to visit. And forget about taking a ‘short’ walk through the neighborhood. People here love to pause and chat. It’s like time-traveling back to a more laid-back, genteel time when the pace of life was not so harried and you could take the time to get to know your friends.
My wife, Silvia, and I were attracted to the Gardens when we were looking for a retirement destination. Our search began during my 32nd year of active duty service in the U.S. Army. I’m the type to carefully research options. Looking for an ideal location was no different. Through an internet search for “houses with RV garages in Tennessee,” The Garden’s RV Village website came up. I shared it with Silvia and we changed our travel plans so we could drive there and see this interesting place I found on the internet.
The day after getting set up on “Homeless Hill” in the Gardens we took a tour of all the available homes for sale. After walking around the neighborhood and talking with all the friendly people, Silvia and I knew we had found the perfect place for us!
We couldn’t have found a more ideal, well-suited place. First, our money goes further by living in Crossville. Not to mention, there’s no state income tax on my pension. City and county real estate taxes are just about the most affordable in the country. But even more than that, we believe the quality of life we’re experiencing here, in the Gardens, is impossible to beat.
Almost all of your friends and neighbors here are retired. This makes it very easy to do things together any day of the week. We share ideas, experiences, and information with each other all the time. We play together, we work on projects together and we travel together. We help each other in so many ways. There is just no better place to be! I encourage you to come see for yourself. Most folks say their only regret is they did not come here sooner!
