1.  Lots of Open Space.  In today’s world, it is more important than ever to have open spaces and fresh air.  Planned communities provide well-maintained outdoor spaces with plenty of room to social distance with your friends.
Cumberland Harbour is a planned community in St. Marys GA, where we are surrounded by vast salt marshes, long-leaf pine and saw palmetto.  Front porch sitting in a rocking chair or porch swing helps people feel refreshed after a day of hard work.
2.  Make Friends Easily.  It’s easy to meet people and make friends.
Cumberland Harbour residents all have a commonality of loving where they live in a beautiful community surrounded by nature!
3.  Sense of Community.  Almost everyone in a planned community has moved from somewhere else.  It’s a very welcoming environment.
Our monthly newsletter includes biographies on new neighbors that have recently moved into the community.  Its a great way of putting a name with a face!
4.  Walkable Communities.  Almost every planned development has a network of walking trails throughout to help residents stay in shape.
Cumberland Harbour has marked hiking trails as well as areas around the Clubhouse and throughout the community for walking and biking.
5.  Live a Healthy Lifestyle.  Planned communities offer many amenities that encourage a healthy lifestyle from golf, tennis, and pickleball to pools and workout facilities with fitness classes and even fitness directors.
A pickle ball schedule is listed on our calendar and teams play several times a week.  Our fitness center is open 24/7, and our Aqua Zumba classes have restarted on a weekly basis as well as a croquet league.
6.  Social Clubs.  Join any type of club that interests you, and if there isn’t one, you can always start one, and others will join you.
Our residents enjoy Mahjong, Ladies Game Night, Men’s Poker Night, monthly get-togethers at the Spring House, and an Annual Crab Tournament where prizes are handed out for the largest crab and the ugliest crab!
7.  Sense of Security.  Many planned communities are gated with 24/7 security.
In the background of this picture is Cumberland Harbour’s Greeter’s Cottage with 24/7 manned gated security.
8.  Beautifully Maintained Homes.  Planned communities have architectural guidelines that ensure the design integrity of the home.
Cumberland Harbour has a Design Review Board that helps maintain the low-country style and quality homes that are sought after by so many perspective buyers.

9.  Lush Landscapes.  Planned communities are built around perfectly managed green spaces (especially when there is a golf course) and are filled with beautiful flora and fauna.
Cumberland Harbour is built on over 1,000 acres and is surrounded by rivers, marsh, tall pines and beautiful live oak trees.  Our Design Review Board goes to great lengths to help potential homebuyers retain as many trees on their homesite as possible.
10.  A Chance to Give Back.  Community organizations within the developments offer an environment to volunteer your gifts.
Two organizations that Cumberland Harbour  works with throughout the year are:  the VA hospital in Lake City, Florida (providing clothing and toiletries to its residents); and St. Marys Helping Hands Food Pantry (where we shop and deliver food items to area residents who need a little extra help).

It’s the hot days of Summer and we can’t think of a better way of cooling off then eating some ice cream!  Its a bonus to have an ice cream sandwich and most of these look super easy to make!  We’re excited to try each of these!  What’s your favorite?
