I’ve been a resident here off & on for 20+ years and I can say other places I have stayed can not compare to old farm. I LOVE my pond view & my sunken living room. If you love listening to water fountains then you will simply adore old farm shore.- Facebook Revie
I have been a resident of OFS for a long time. I love the pond view, listening to the water while listening to the ducks is soothing during the summer months. I also enjoy the sunken living room and the various apartment styles to choose from.- Apartment Guide Review
This is the first place I have ever lived on my own, and I have loved my experience here. The staff is helpful and kind, the environment is very pleasant, and the amenities (pool, clubhouse, etc.) are well-kept. When I have had maintenance issues in my apartment, it was very easy to report using the app on my phone and someone took care of the problem immediately. I would definitely recommend OFS to anyone.- Facebook Review
