Many of our residents enjoy boating, kayaking, and Golf, as well as woodsy feel of our community. Our diverse community includes active duty military, civilian contractors, retirees and a multitude of school age kids.  
Harnett County has four distinct seasons with a temperate climate and plenty of sunshine.  Within the past few years a variety of retail businesses have opened nearby and the cities of Sanford, Fayetteville and Raleigh is just a short drive away.
