Twin Lakes Reviews

3 reviews
Safe lower to mid-middle class neighborhood with crummy to ok homes depending on your taste. No amenities to speak of besides 3 lakes you can fish or canoe in (no swimming). Some good Blue Ridge views depending on time and place. No hiking trails but you can walk the roads as long as you maintain awareness. People are nice enough and mind their own business; predominately a mix of middle age families to elderly population. Basically a cheaper place to live within the Cville area. HOA clears snow off the roads, maintains roads and dams, cuts public area grass. Not particularly exciting place to live after the novelty of country living wears off, but that’s pretty much how most people who choose to live here want it. Shenandoah National Park is about 20 minutes away. Charlottesville about 30-35 depending on traffic. I don’t hate it living here. I don’t love it living here. Thus the average rate. Your mileage may vary.

The crime in this area is not as bad as the Richmond area. As most people have heard in the news Hannah Gram was taken in my area. This event really affected people. They believed that this area was turning shady. However, I do not think that. Of course, there are some areas that will feel sketchy and not safe for a girl to walk around at by herself, but most of the areas around here feel very comforting and safe.

We do not see many crimes that are committed in this area. If any crimes were to happen it would be during the night.

The popular hangout area around here is the Downtown mall. When a person is walking down the downtown mall they are most likely to see about two to three cops walking around the area making sure everything is safe.
I would choose to live here again. It has amazing scenery that will blow your mind.
