Cascade Township has been a great place to live. It's just outside of Rochester, so we have the resources of the city but the space of the township.

I like the silence, space, and isolation, but at time it feels like lonely.

I do not like having to drive everywhere, but biking to the grocery store is not a short ride.
I love Rochester and my neighborhood.
