happy mug in rainWhen you're looking outside your apartment window and you see the clouds covering the sunshine, do you feel like you should spend your day off relaxing? Then good thing you're in Hignell Rentals apartments! Our wonderful complexes have many different amenities for our residents that are great to enjoy all throughout the year.

Fitness Center

In need of getting into shape but don’t want to run in the rain or pay expensive gym memberships? A few of our Hignell Rentals properties provide an on site fitness center for you.

 Just imagine not having to drive to the gym whenever you would like to get in a nice, but quick workout.


If it's cold outside or you just want a relaxing soak after a long week at work, several of our apartment complexes have Jacuzzis and/or saunas. There isn’t much better than taking a short walk from your apartment to the Jacuzzi where you can enjoy hot water and relaxing jets. 

Caring Communities Events

Some of our complexes have Care Teams that put on events just for their residents. If the weather isn’t nice enough for you to meet up with a few friends at the park, then why not attend an event at your apartment complex that will bring joy and entertainment? These events include Pizza Night, Pie Night, Hot Chocolate Bar Night and more!

Movie Checkout

Want to hang out in your apartment, snack on some popcorn and watch a movie? What do you do when you aren't in the mood to watch any of the movies you own, but don’t want to drive anywhere to go rent one? A few of our complexes have movie checkout systems in the clubhouses to help our residents stay entertained, but also save money and time while doing it.

More Ideas When Staying Inside

Staying inside on a gloomy day is fun for some and depressing for others. No matter how you feel about staying inside, here are a few ideas that can please everyone! 

  • Baking - Nothing makes staying inside better than when it smells of delicious muffins, cookies, and bread!
  • Binge Watching - When you're staying inside on a gloomy day, there isn't any excuse why you can't finish the entire season of the Netflix or Prime TV show you're currently watching.
  • Read a Book - Crack open your window and listen to the wonderful sound of rain falling while diving into your book. 

Our Hignell Rentals properties have great amenities to keep you entertained during the cooler months of the year. Just because it's fall or winter time doesn’t mean that you have to be bored here in town.
