After 11 years, Whitaker Glen is still great!
I have lived in (The Oaks at) Whitaker Glen for 11 years, and believe it is the best Independent Living facility in Raleigh. The staff, year in and year out and despite normal turnover, are uniformly compassionate, friendly and caring. The food is superior to that at any other retirement community I have visited here--consistently good and often excellent thanks to an expert chef. Residents are a delightful mix of Southern and Northern people, many retired from N.C. State University, state government or the professions. The apartments offer more "bang for the buck" than anywhere else in terms of space--large rooms, high ceilings, superb soundproofing, excellent storage, balconies for every unit. (One resident was able, in her one-bedroom apartment, to set up her painting studio in the bedroom.) All apartments have pleasant, wooded views with lots of birds. Whitaker Glen's location inside the Raleigh Beltline is unparalleled for convenience, and its architecture, public-space decor and landscaping are beautiful. I am sad to contemplate leaving my beloved two-bedroom, 1 1/2 bath apartment, but I am old enough now to need to be near my daughter, so must move out of state. It will be a lucky soul or couple who inherit (after renovation) this apartment in this great community.
