    Although I'm pretty far from being at 'that age' I must say that this place looks pretty damn good. Once a week maid service, chauffeured transportation, art studio, wine cave, and spa services?! And all in the heart of Sonoma County?! Sign me up!

    Interesting. I think there have been gay communities before, but this one seems to add the aspect of on-site health care. Both my partner & I might benefit from that. Though at present you can't slow him down, more active at 77 than I am at 62. And very strong roots in this community here.

    Still, a thought for the not-too-distant future. But this place seems to be a proposal, doesn't actually exist yet. I'm wary of putting money into something that's only on paper.

    If it was all gay, I'd be interested.
    I don't live with women now.
    I don't care to live with them when I'm retired.

    Their pics show lesbians. I'd prefer all gays, but we both get along quite well with lesbians, actually better than many other gay men do, I believe, so that wouldn't be a serious obstacle for us.

    I'm sure that there are some people out there willing to put money on it, especially if they can afford too. But, this type of retirement community would certainly be a first.

    Kind of makes you wonder if some straight couples would pretend to be gay in order to get these types of services and a fabulous location in the heart of Sonoma County. icon_lol.gif

    As long as they don't let the lesbians have any control of the dj booth in the community bar (they do have one), I can live with them just fine.
