And can you blame them?

According to the article:

"Long, sandy beaches, clear blue water, brilliant Michigan? You bet. The stretch of Lake Michigan coastline that hugs the western border of the state has all the charm of the seashore, only without the stinging jellyfish, blanket-to-blanket crowds and impossibly high home prices. While lots of appealing little towns dot this "Riviera of the Midwest," St. Joseph - with its vibrant year-round community, topnotch medical care and proximity to Chicago - stands out."

It's true. St. Joseph is truly one of the best places in the Midwest to retire. You may ask yourself, "If St. Joe is one of the best places to retire, what is the best place in St. Joe to retire to?"

The answer that a local citizen is most likely to give is "The Whitcomb". Situated in downtown St. Joseph, overlooking the aforementioned Lake Michigan, the Whitcomb has provided the best value of any senior living retirement community in the area for over 35 years.

In fact, the photo above was taken from the bluff, right in front of the Whitcomb. And with the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course set to open across the river (within walking distance) in Summer of 2009, not only do residents of the Whitcomb have front row seats to all of the beautiful festivals, parks, beaches, and downtown shopping, but you'll have easy access to a golf course designed by the Golden Bear himself.

In a recent survey, the overwhelming majority of Whitcomb residents said they would recommend living at the Whitcomb to a friend.

When Lynn Kellog, CEO of the local Area Agency On Aging was asked why she advised her mother to choose the Whitcomb, she said "Because of the Whitcomb resident's active and social interaction as well as the individualized personal care and assistance in living options. I also appreciate the Whitcomb's involvement and dedicated service to the community."

Mrs. Sieber put it a little more simply: "We just like it. We really, really like it!"
