In October 2009 Maribeth and Jon Haynes were driving back to their Midlands apartment after signing a second year’s lease. They turned down an unfamiliar road that led to Saluda River Club.
“It was immediate,” Jon recalls. “We knew we had to move there and five days later we had put in an offer on a Saluda River Club townhome.” Jon, a sales rep for UnitedHealthcare and Maribeth, a marketing coordinator, were wowed by the amenities.
“We also loved the fact that the community was growing quickly. We knew we were making a solid investment.”
The Charleston style home they selected features a master bedroom on the main level and two upstairs bedrooms. An extra bedroom and bathroom have been put to good use as temporary quarters for their brother-in-law who’s attending law school in Columbia.
“It really feels more like a home than a townhome with the rich finishes, high ceilings and large windows – the list goes on and on,” Jon adds.
The Haynes’ home has become a favorite visiting spot for family members. “Between the pools and the playground, the kids are totally entertained,” Maribeth says.
She and Jon are regulars at the gym and, when they find the time, they love to head out on the river in a kayak. They’ve participated in community events including progressive dinners.
It’s the people that make the activities so special, they say. “We absolutely love our neighbors – they’re really great.”
