SPOTLIGHT: Hampton Lake in Bluffton, SC
It's always a great idea to re-visit great communities and Hampton Lake is no exception. With awards from the National Home Builders for Best Community, this is really a great place to live!
It is located on the mainland just a short 15 miles from Hilton Head Island, 10 miles from Old Town Bluffton, 15 miles from Beaufort, and 25 miles to Savannah Georgia.
With a great lifestyle all built around the water views, the clubhouse, Backwater Bill's restaurant, the Tackle Box, and community docks where you can either use the community kayaks for free or take one of the Duffy boats out for a nominal fee, you really won't even miss not being 'at the beach.' The swimming pool has a lazy river with waterfalls under the bridge, and there are jumping water fountains just like at any amusement park. For a bit of a change from the pool, there is a playground with soft rubber ground so the little ones won't skin their knees and in case the adults want a quiet place to relax, there is another pool farther down from the main pool that has cabanas, wi-fi, and a quiet fountain - no children allowed.
If you're more into fitness, the fitness center has state of the art what I like to call 'instruments of torture' for all different levels and their trainers are encouraging, friendly, and professional!
If you're more for strolling, there are sidewalks throughout the entire community in addition to walkways through the beautifully maintained and wooded areas as well as the ability to fish in the lagoons since they are well stocked.
