Maple Brook Hosts Myriad Clubhouse Gatherings Including an Annual Super Bowl Party

Thirty miles down highway 57, just outside one of America’s greatest cities, is Maple Brook Manufactured Home Community, a destination in its own right for retirement-age home buyers looking for a quiet place that’s still close to the city.

“A lot of people like Maple Brook because you’re close to all of the highways and have easy access to all the trains to downtown Chicago,” said Mike Dennis, sales representative for the Sun Communities property. “I always tell people to take a mental snapshot for when you’re shopping around. Remember what you’re seeing here.”

The community clubhouse has 3,000 square feet and includes a library. It’s an everyday meeting place for residents, and the Maple Brook Manufactured Home Communityvenue for celebrations — from the annual Super Bowl viewing party to craft shows — and can be reserved by residents for get-togethers of their own.

Adjacent the property is the 20-mile long Old Plank Trail.

“It runs through the south suburbs of Chicago,” Dennis said. “At 7 a.m. you can see a lot of people from here out on the trail making good use of it.”

“There also are four pocket parks, one for each quadrant of the community, and a main park near the clubhouse that’s used for bocce ball, horseshoes and shuffleboard,” Dennis said.

Maple Brook has a residential look

Built in 1995 and purchased by Sun in 2014, the 150-acre, 441-home community is developed to the same specifications a residential neighborhood would be, including homes built on-site, 30-foot wide streets and deep-home sites with multi-section homes.

  1. Good afternoon. When you say 55 + community exactly what does that mean? The owners have to be 55 + yrs old. Can their kids, grandchildren move in also? Please clarify…..Thank yoy

    • Hello Orlando, thank you for posting. Yes, 55+ means it’s a retirement community and only allows residents who are 55 years or older. If you’re looking to reside in a community where children and other people younger than 55 can live, you have to look at “all-ages” communities. When you do your search for communities on MHVillage you can click that “all ages” box and any others you like to filter results to your preference.
