The subdivision is located in both McHenry and Kane Counties in northern Illinois and is approximately 45 miles northwest of downtown Chicago and 30 miles from O'Hare International Airport. All of the community is located within the city limits of Huntley. The community is zoned an active adult community, which means at least one person per household must be 55 years or older. Guests under the age of 19 are welcome to visit, but some restrictions apply to their length of stay.
