With a focus on the family, The Reserve at Lake Keowee has introduced its Legacy Membership, a robust expansion of benefits to the community’s Full and Premier Members.
The Reserve’s Legacy Membership now allows Members at the Greenville, SC, community to extend their membership privileges beyond their spouses and minor children to include their parents, adult children, and grandchildren. Existing members need only complete a Family Registration Form to activate their Legacy benefits. Request more information.
A Family-Oriented Community
“We have always been a very family-oriented community and have tried hard to cater to the desires of members and to carry out our promise and vision as a place to create family legacies,” explains Chuck Pigg, VP of Greenwood Communities and Resorts and Community Manager of The Reserve.
“Upon reflecting on our 10th Anniversary year, we recognized once again how important it is to our members to share The Reserve with their families.
"We felt that one of the best things we could do to enhance the membership value for existing and future members, as well as further strengthen our commitment to family, was to offer membership privileges to the parents, grandparents, children and grandchildren of the member.”
Transitioning Vacation Home to Retirement Home
The legacy aspect of The Reserve’s new Legacy Membership answers a growing demand among Baby Boomers, as evidenced in the Kelsey & Norden’s study, to transition their vacation/second home into a retirement home. More than half of the Baby Boomer respondents indicated that they are “likely” to “very likely” to retire in their vacation/second home. Request more information.
And though no one can deny the keen eye all buyers have toward the perception of value-for-price, Kelsey & Norden found that “the recession forced people to reevaluate their priorities and values. Many families concluded that spending quality time together away from their regular stressful, time-constrained lives is now more important than ever.”
Full-time residents Barry and Carol Hudson echoed those same sentiments:
“We decided to build at The Reserve because we believed this would be a place our kids and grandkids would want to visit and that has certainly been the case. Keeping the family together is a priority for us, and The Reserve is the perfect place to do that. So, naturally, we were delighted to hear about the new Legacy Membership.
“Our son, Shannon and wife, Melissa, live in Greenville and are excited to know they will have full membership privileges making The Reserve amenities more easily accessible. Our daughter, Barbara Ann, and husband, Kirk, visit several times a year even though they live in Oklahoma.”
The Hudson Family congregates at The Reserve every summer, over the Fourth of July. They enjoy the Family Olympics at Turkey Ridge Park, watching the fireworks, golfing, and of course, doing all manner of activities in and around the lake and pool. During fall visits, the whole family takes to the trails.
Bringing Families Together
For part-time residents Doug and Sandy McKinney, too, the impetus for building a home at The Reserve has always been to bring their large family together:
“We have five children, four sons-in-law, a son who is recently engaged, and eight grandchildren,” Sandy McKinney explains.
“Our lakefront home at The Reserve can sleep 23 people, and we included a great beach with boats and jet skis, not only so that our kids would want to come visit, but also our grandkids. Our property is wonderful, but The Reserve and its amenities make it doubly wonderful.”
In the first weeks since announcing the new Legacy Membership, more than 160 parents, children, grandparents and grandchildren have enrolled in the new program. Request more information.
