It’s that time of year when many of us resolve to get in shape and shed a few pounds. Those of us at The Manor Group are part of that group of resolution makers and struggle with keeping up with our goals once the first few weeks of January have passed.
A commonly heard excuse for not going to the gym is lack of time. We are all super busy with kids, jobs and Netflix, right? Fortunately, we offer 24-hour access to our fitness center. It’s already free to our residents but we make sure it’s open all the time. No holiday closures or bad weather delays! Plus, if Netflix is still taking up too much of your free time, we provide complimentary WIFI so you can get your binge on while you work your bulge off!
Another way to keep yourself on track is to find a buddy. Walking club, Zumba classes and weight loss meetings are just a few of the wonderful community activities we have hosted so residents can get help in reaching their goals. Tell us what would help you stay accountable.
We wish you a fit and healthy 2017 and hope your resolutions become good habits. Remember that our pool season is just a few months away!
December is that time of the year when Springetts Apartments’ neighbors gather together to celebrate the holidays. One of our favorite traditions is our annual Holiday Dinner.
Last week we hosted an open house dinner in our beautifully decorated community room. It was a wonderful chance for everyone to come together as friends and neighbors to celebrate the season. We loved watching residents and staff sit together and enjoy good food and great company.
We even had a visit from Santa who brought presents for the children in the community!
It makes our entire community feel like a family. Our Holiday Dinner is always one of our most popular events and has become an anticipated tradition.
At Springetts Apartments, we consistently strive to explore new ways of giving back to the community.
This fall we chose to raise money for our local Toys for Tots, which provides families in need with presents for the holidays. For a $5 donation to our “Soup Social,” residents enjoyed a variety of yummy soups, perfect for the chilly night. We also hosted a raffle for a chance to win tickets to the Holly Jolly Christmas Show at the Dutch Apple Theater in Lancaster.
For those who couldn’t attend dinner but would still like to contribute, we have donation boxes for Toys for Tots and Harvest of Hope Food Pantry in York ready to be filled!
We are genuinely proud of our residents and what they continually accomplish for society!
If you ask our residents what they love most about living at Springetts Apartments many will tell you it’s our wonderful maintenance team! Here at Springetts Apartments our main focus is customer service and making sure our residents are taken care of, which includes apartment maintenance. Our maintenance team’s main priority is to solve any obstacle in a thorough and speedy manner.
Whether it is a clogged drain, burned out lightbulb or a jammed patio door, our team members are on the job within the day. Unlike regular maintenance technicians that require you to take off work and let them in your house, with your permission, our team can make a service call while you carry on with your day. Our technicians bring card to leave at your door after each call. This allows our residents to know when a member has stopped in and explains how they have resolved the concern.
There is also no need to worry about after hours calls. With our 24-hour emergency maintenance we always have a team member on call to help with lock-outs and other urgent service requests.

Springetts Apartments beautiful garden apartment community sits on 30 quiet acres, but we are just minutes from downtown York, a city with rich history interwoven with vibrant arts and culture, creative dining and unique shopping.
Did you know that York is the birthplace of our nation’s Articles of Confederation and the place where the phrase “The United States of America” was first coined? Three centuries of American history have shaped our county into an incredible preservation of revolutionary times. York’s many museums offer an opportunity learn about a time in which America was new, inhabited by immigrant pioneers and Revolutionary War soldiers. The Agricultural and Industrial Museum highlights York’s industrial contribution to World War II, while the Bonham House allows visitors to experience what life was like for an upper middle class family during the 19th and 20th century.
For a peek at York’s future, spend a day in downtown York. A full calendar of events highlights three separate unique districts. The Market District centers on Central Market, with over 125 years of history and 50+ vendors showcasing farm fresh, local offerings. Interested in the arts? The Royal Square is an emerging art district, home to local artists and galleries, cafes and special events. Completing the trifecta is the WeCo business district, home to a variety of restaurants, shops and even an independent film house/art gallery.
Come experience the past and future in this diverse and ever changing city we call home.
The holidays are approaching and it’s a great time to share some of our family traditions.

Springetts Apartments offers great amenities and we wanted to add something special for our four-legged residents. We now have a community dog park!
The new fenced play area is a wonderful area for the dogs of Springetts to run off-leash while their owners can meet and relax. We have already received rave reviews from our pet owners and their fur babies.

With Spring’s arrival we have begun to prepare our Community Garden. Residents are invited to “farm” a plot in the garden and enjoy a harvest of fresh vegetables, fruit, even flowers.
