Wanting to buy a home in the Enchanted Hills area, by Rocky Fork Lake, and wondering what kind of environment it is there? Also wondering about the Home Owner's Association and if it’s a good one?

The kids are nothing but a bunch of hooligians, they think its cool to tear up other peoples property. the association is a joke and a half.

Yes there are a bunch of kids and teenagers. NO, they do not. If people dont pay their dues they add it to the other residents dues to cover for it.

What else can you tell me about Enchanted Hills? I heard it's going to be a retirement location in about 10 years. Also hear there are some lawsuits???

I don't know anything about this, but i can tell you that the person that started this forum is not interested in moving there , they are fishing for information and i would say it probably has something to do with their question, and i quote "also heard there were some lawsuits " be careful or you may be involved in their court battle.

I'm not involved at all, just inquiring on a possible investment. It pays to do one's homework before jumping into something. Thanks,

Mishandling of funds. Do some research on the internet and you will find it. This place isn't a good investment. Whole lake region went downhill when they installed the mandatory sewer and charged people $10,000. We lived in a $5000 trailer and were supposed to be able to afford $10,000 for our waste.... Thanks

I grew up in Holiday Trails off of Hill rd. I loved it there. Spent my childhood riding bikes and fishing. I am now 34 so this was 20 plus years ago. The people in the association were friendly. The older women were always offering snacks to us. The older guys were always showing off their project cars to us. There were people who would always offer to take a couple kids out on their boat. Not strangers mind you. Neighbors. I lived there for 15 years and got to know a lot of people there. I looked forward to every summer because the retirees would stay for the summer and they always had something fun to do. It was a great place to grow up back then. Kid could make a good bit of money cutting grass and raking leaves there.

However I cannot stand the sight of it now. It's disgusting. Sooo many abandoned properties. Crystal Meth ran it's course a few years ago. No new homes have moved in since I left 18 years ago. The HOA used to be on people. Now the yards are unkempt and trashy.

I have often considered moving back with my family but I am not sure I can do it. Property is the cheapest around but there is good reason for it.

I suggest you do your research on the sewer system. Most of the properties are so cheap because they haven't paid the sewer fees. YOU will have to pay those before you live there.$10,000!!!

You know, I don't believe this is not a good place to buy. I talked to a woman in the HOA office and she was sorta rude and short with me. Acted like I was stupid. Good luck to all of you that are there in Enchanted Hills. I believe the storys I have heard now.

They having been doing a great job of getting the area cleaned up from what it was and as long as we keeping getting good folk to move in it will get even better with time. i think it is a great place to live and if you treat the kids out there with some respect they will treat you with the same respect- no on the other hand there has been so theivery going on but it is the adults out there that do not have jobs.

I want to come home &make this place the neighborhood it used to be. Please respond. I wrote much more on previous post, but I cannot see it on here. I will give my number to anyone who is SERIOUS in speaking with me. I do not have time to waste, no games please.

OK....this last post posted immediately, so I assume my previous did not post. As I have stated, I lived here 28 yrs. ago. IT WAS THE PERFECT PLACE TO LIVE FOR ANY AGE. My husband & I manage a community in Houston, TX. We have turned this neighborhood from a dump into a family community that is clean, safe, and thriving full with happy people. It took 5 LONG years of communication, dedication, & hard work of the whole community. I am reading that Enchanted Hills is in bad disrepair. I am a girl who just wants to "go home again" & make this place happy again. I know there is an HOA involved, but who owns it/decides who manages it? I do not have funds myself to purchase Enchanted Hills, but the 2 guys we work for would gladly purchase it. THEY ARE NO INVESTORS, BUT RATHER 2 MEN WHO HAVE WORKED HARD TO OWN 45 COMMUNITIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY. I do not get a "commission" for finding nor upgrading or anything else like that. I only want to bring those good ol days back for everyone so they can enjoy what I did.....good neighbors, good people who gave to the community & didn't take, & happy people who WANT to be outside enjoying the community. I do have one selfish plan....I want to live in a happy community back home again. I am not saying this can happen overnight, but with hard work by all, it can be down slowly but surely. I AM SERIOUS. If you can give me information on who to speak with & point me in a direction to go, I PROMISE TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN IN ANY WAY POSSIBLE BY ME. I need a starting point. I do understand there is an HOA there....is it privately owned by them? Who do I talk to? I will gladly give my contact info to you if needed. I am not asking for anyone to start trouble & I am not wanting it for managers there I do not know....I am only interested in helping bring it back. I mean what I say & say what I mean....in other words, I don't talk to hear my head rattle. Please respond ASAP as I intend on visiting family there soon & would like to get wheels turning then. Again, I am serious.

Just to respond to your request, Enchanted Hills Community Association is owned by 400+ owners of 700+ lots. It is organized by a board of directors, all owning property, who represents all home owners. The problem with Enchanted Hills is the homeowners can't pass anything, by voting, to improve their own community. It's in a deadlock as to who did what or said what, so many of the owners don't even vote or care what happens around them. There is no pride there as to inproving their own community.

So...U R saying there is no hope of improvement that can happen by an outsider? No hope of new management or changes of enforcement that can happen? No people to speak w/except actual home owners? WOW! Sad!

WOW! I do thank you for replying. So.....you are saying there is no hope for change/improvement by an outsider? No voting to elect a different manager or any other way to go about it? SO SAD! Not good news, but the truth sometimes hurts. No people except for actual homeowners to speak with? I will contact or speak with anyone who can help me to change this place somehow....it may just need a different vibe....like someone who CARES! But, if there is no way to change the system of things.....whew...just sad. Period.

How IS management appointed?

Management, (board) is voted on yearly for a three year term. It's not the board that has the issues, many board members have put in hours of work in trying to get people to understand. It's many of the owners who don't care, not the board who is trying to bring the community up to a higher level. I really don't think a new board would even help, they would be faced with the same controversy. So many are fighting amongst themselves to have things the way they want. One owner send out letters to boycott, and people listen, or don't want to get involved with their childish ways. Really it's a hopless case until people grow up and want to better their community.

I again thank you for replying. Still, so sad. Pettiness & stubbornness creates nightmares for all. Still, so sad.

@ Judyp. I wouldn't live out there for anything. There are a lot of drugs and a whole lot of felons. It just isn't a very safe area. Plus the home owner's association is joke and you can check the Highland County Court of Common Pleas website and see the lawsuits. You can check the sexual offender website and you will see that a lot of them live in Paint Township. It is a shame what they have allowed to happen out there. Plus the sewage system is ridiculous. The other side of the lake is pretty nice. The Lucas Lane are is quite and very little trouble.
