When you live in a Cornerstone Homes community, a maintenance-free, all-fun lifestyle lets you live life your way. When you don’t have to worry about home repairs or yard work, your days are open-ended — whether you want to knock off the items on your bucket list, or simply sit back and relax.


Just ask Pamela, an active and vibrant Barley Woods homeowner who discovered just how much fun a 55+ community is. From making new friends to exploring new passions, AND  finally being able to leave the yard work to someone else, Pamela is having the time of her life! 

Pamela moved from a large 5 bedroom home on a half acre lot with lots of flower beds and leaves.   She did all the yard work herself until finally hiring help. It took Pamela two days to clean the inside of her 4000 sq. ft. home.  Pamela’s friends kept telling her, “This house is killing you!”

She admitted she felt trapped by all the work,  especially after suffering from an injury that left 2 of her ribs cracked. “Having to sit out on the pleasures of life for 8 weeks, I realized it was time to focus on enjoying life, and not the chores of maintaining a house.”

So she made the decision to look for a maintenance-free home and a community with amenities so she could have more free time and a chance to connect with new neighbors.

“Barley Woods had everything I was looking for”, said Pam. “Finally, I can sit back, relax, and enjoy life, instead of having to stress about keeping up with the yard work and cleaning a huge two-story home!”  


Pamela moved to Barley Woods in Fredericksburg from just 4 miles away, so her friends still live close by.  “Because many of my friends still work, I am enjoying hanging out, relaxing and getting to know my new neighbors in Barley Woods. I definitely have more opportunities to socialize more now and enjoy the activities at the Clubhouse.”

Pamela is also are regular at the Fitness Center at the Clubhouse. She works out at least 5 times a week. “It’s so nice to walk to the Fitness Center and not have to get in the car and drive to the gym.”  You can often see Pamela walking to the Clubhouse with a backpack filled with weights and water bottles to strengthen her back.

Having unlimited choices to fill her days with something new and exciting, Pamela found that right-sizing her home and life was the best decision she has ever made. She has far less work on her plate and far more room to do what she wants, whether it’s working out, shopping, seeing movies, or meeting up with friends at the Clubhouse.  

There’s nothing quite like waking up in the morning and knowing that your day ahead will be bright, exciting and filled with the things you love. “This fall, I’m thinking about all those acorns and all those leaves that I don’t have to deal with this year!!”
