    I would definitely live here again, Hendersonville is a great place to be. The kindness and the neighborly tone of the town is one of the most sincere I've ever encountered. Plus the shops are great too.
    Review Blue Ridge Township
    When my husband and i were looking for places to live, we weren't originally sure about where to live. The apartment we now live in was the first apartment we looked at. Over time, i am glad we moved here. We're homebodies, but if we wanted to go do something over the weekend, there's always something going on.
    There are rarely any crimes reported on, and the streets and homes in the area stay in very good condition.
