Soleil Laurel Canyon Awarded One of Nation’s 50 Best Places to Retire

CANTON, Ga. – “Where to Retire” magazine just designated Soleil Laurel Canyon as one of the 50 best master-planned communities in the United States, in its issue that will appear on newsstands June 21. Soleil, a 55+ active adult, resort-style community, is located in the North Georgia mountains near Canton.


“Where to Retire” editors began gathering information on more than 150 communities across the United States nearly a year ago. They pared down the neighborhoods, zeroing in on those that are amenity-rich, with clubhouses, recreation and activities to help residents stay fully engaged.


“Clubhouses, fitness centers, social clubs and education classes mean residents get much more than a house at a planned community,” said Karen Northridge, publisher of “Where to Retire.”


“Residents love their homes in Soleil, but they really enjoy the lifestyle,” says Evan Cramer, development manager for Active Lifestyle Communities.  “The community offers so many amenities, activities and clubs. From golf, to gardening to model trains, there is something here that each person can connect with.”


While Soleil is a retirement community restricted to those 55+ in age, residents live independently in homes that range from 1,500 to almost 3,000 square feet and are priced between $200,000 and the high $400,000s. Yard maintenance, a 24-hour staffed security gatehouse, and home security monitoring are included in the association fees. This environment, which also includes a clubhouse with heated indoor saline pool, billiards parlor, gourmet teaching kitchen, fitness center and aerobics studio, library, two card rooms and an arts and crafts studio, is why Cramer says Soleil is truly one of the nation’s best retirement communities. A performing arts center, outdoor amphitheatre, outdoor lagoon-style pool, six clay tennis courts, full-time tennis pro, walking trails, a greenhouse and neighboring golf course round out the long list of amenities.
