The Enclave has a basic towing capacity of 1,500 pounds. This goes up to 5,000 pounds with the optional trailer towing package that includes additional cooling and other tweaks. English speakers borrowed 'enclave' from French in the 19th century. The French noun derives in turn from the Middle French verb enclaver, meaning to 'enclose.' 'Enclaver' itself can be traced to the Latin prefix in- and the Latin noun clavis, meaning 'key.'

Rick2020-12-05I liked The Enclave of Springboro. The staff was very good. I wasn't allowed to interact with a many people because of the COVID thing. One of the ladies showed us to the room, but one of the ladies did a virtual tour, so that was kind of half real and half virtual. She walked through the place. I was in the Enclave and I've been there before. The rooms looked fine. There were three options, so we haven't decided which options to use yet. All of them have multiple options. The dining area looked fine. They have games. They have an exercise area, but I don't think you're allowed to play games with people. They have some outdoor areas, but no pool or anything.I visited this facility
Dominick2020-08-18My mom moved into The Enclave of Springboro. It's been great so far, they have bingo, coloring, painting, exercises, pretty much everything, and they take trips together to go to the store. I know they do movie nights, but I just don't know what they're allowing because of the COVID situation.I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident
Cindy2020-03-17Had dad been in better health, The Enclave of Springboro would have been a wonderful place. It was big, there were activities, he could eat when and what he wanted to. He was in a room down the hallway, and everybody I bumped into was really nice and friendly. We wound up needing a place suddenly because on a Friday evening I learned that the assisted living there could no longer take care of him and we need to get him a new place by Monday. The Enclave marketed itself as being able to take care of people with a higher level of care than the place we moved out from. That turned out to be not true. We literally moved my dad's furniture in on a Thursday, then got him ambulance in from the rehab facility he was at, we had to rent a hospital bed and a lift for him. He was there for a week and we had to go to the ER because of a complication then to rehab, then we got the notice from this place and he was never able to go back. We had to move his furniture one more time. I was really disappointed, because I really thought that this community was a wonderful place. It was the marketing team that we talked to, and I was relieved that if we move him there they'll be able to take care of him. But they weren't staffed to be able to care for him and there was nobody there who could lift him. I feel like The Enclave misrepresented themself. The food was wonderful and the facilities were wonderful, I would love for him to be able to stay there. They had a movie theater in the place and things that he would have been involved in had dad been in better shape. They also have bus trips for lunch and the bus had a lift. They were anticipating that the home care that we wound up with will be able to help out with the nursing care, but dad needed help every time he had to go to the bathroom. The couple of people assigned to his wing also had to do the laundry and housecleaning, they were not staffed to take care of him. The food was good, the place was clean, it was pretty and wonderful, everybody was friendly but it was not right for my dad.I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident
Virginia2019-07-02It was wonderful. If I was going to go some place, I definitely would very highly consider that. They were polite and showed me the best part of the facility and the apartments and exactly what I was looking for. They showed me a library and where they do their activities. I went to their happy hour, and it was fine. It's a fabulous facility.I visited this facility
Robin2018-11-12My mother lives here. She loves it and I love it. She just has a little suite, living room, bedroom, a little kitchenette, and a nice big handicap bathroom, but she's happy as a clam there. It's an assisted living and a memory care facility. I'm very impressed. She had been there for respite care a few times. They clean the rooms, mop her little kitchenette area, vacuum, dust, change her linens, wash her towels once a week, and they would do her laundry if I didn't. The whole place is immaculately clean. The dining room gets mopped down multiple times a day. The food is excellent. The vegetables, the fruits, and the salads are very fresh. It definitely is not institutional food. They change up the menus, so there's variety. All of my mother's aides are amazing. She has adopted them all as granddaughters and they go out of their way to make sure that she has what she needs and she's comfortable. We just have communication issues and a couple of times when I called and asked for messages to be given to her, she didn't get a few of them. The activities are awesome and they do a lot of family activities. They have picnics, a Halloween party, a Father's Day activity, a classic car show where they have barbecues, live music, and luaus, a Mother's Day activity, bingo, arts and crafts, and field trips. They have lovely outdoor areas. The front has a big covered outdoor patio area with an outdoor fireplace, patio tables, picnic areas, and little walking paths. This facility backs up on a public park.I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

Lisa2018-05-01It is amazing. My mother-in-law is in there right now. Everybody is friendly and caring, and they take really good care of her. Her room is beautiful. She responds really well to the activities. Their staff is wonderful. She is in their memory care complex. It's close to our home and we were thrilled with them; that's why we chose them.I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident
Reviewer0321202020-03-31The Enclave of Springboro has been mediocre. My mother's room is nice, well decorated, and clean, but their staffing isn't what it should be for the residents. They take the residents into the main gathering area for activities. I've tried several of the meals, and they were all terrible. It's not very high quality meat, and everything is pretty much served cold. There are some staff members that seem to care and are a lot more knowledgeable than others, but a lot are very unknowledgeable. When you walk in the place looks awesome, and you think it's going to be great, but the care and the staff don't meet that same criteria or expectation.I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

Feeling Surrounded?

Enclave Synonym

Yes, it happens on occasion: a country or other political entity may be entirely surrounded by another country or entity. Or, there’s the opposite, where a piece of a country or larger political entity will be completely separated by other entities that have absolutely no political jurisdiction over it. These political anomalies are known as “enclaves” and “exclaves”. There is some confusion between the two, since in theory and technicality they relate the same thing occurring. To clear up the confusion, we’re going to look at how, in fact, these two terms are different, both politically and geographically.


Enclave is derived from the Old French word enclaver, meaning to enclose, which in turn evolved from the Vulgar Latin inclavare, or “to lock up”, which further originated from the Latin “in-clavis”, meaning key. Depending on what part of the world these enclaves are located, they may either enjoy top class protection from potential enemies, or be literally surrounded by an enemy. In many cases, enclaves are on a more local level, with it merely being a county or city that is completely surrounded by a larger city. Sport ultralight panfish pack.

Some examples of enclaves include:

Australian Capital Territory, Australia

Completely surrounded by the much state of larger New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory was declared on January 1st, 1911, after the territory’s largest city, Canberra, had been selected, based on the basic requirements for the capital to be located somewhere picturesque, distinctive, and with views galore, as the site for the capital city upon the official federation of Australia earlier in 1901. An international competition was held even for the design of the new capital, which was awarded to American architect Walter Burley. Today, like many capital cities, Canberra continues to be both a cultural and tourist hub for Australians and foreigners alike who enjoy the many sights around the city.


Arguably one of the more obscure countries in southern Africa, Lesotho is entirely surrounded by South Africa in the highlands of the semi-arid Drakensberg Mountains, where arable land is hard to come by, and many people seek work in nearby South Africa, upon which the small, former British protectorate is highly dependent upon economically. Travel is also limited in Lesotho, as many of the villages throughout the country can only be reached by horse. Lesotho continues to be mired by political instability and a high poverty rate, though the country at least has a reasonably high literacy rate, currently standing at around 85%.

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

The largest city in the province, Saskatoon is completely surrounded by the Corman Park Rural Municipality, both of which are located in the heart of Canada’s “breadbasket”, which is actually the whole province of Saskatchewan’s superlative nickname. The name of the city is derived from a berry that remarkably resembles blueberries, but the city is best known for its many bridges crossing over the South Saskatchewan River, which flows right through the heart of the city. Of course, Saskatoon isn't some special case here. Both nearby Martensville and Warman are also enclaves within the same Corman Park Rural Municipality.

San Marino

A microstate surrounded and landlocked by Italy near the top of the boot-shaped Italian Peninsula, San Marino is one of the world’s smallest countries. In this affluent nation, vehicles outnumber people! Sometimes considered the world’s oldest republic, the country is a remnant of a bygone era when many city-states were scattered across Europe, especially Italy, before their widespread unification. With Italy as a decent defense and buffer, San Marino remained neutral during World War II, although it was ruled by a fascist government during that time. More recently, in 2009 San Marino removed itself from the Tax Haven “gray list” that has become a recent global scandal among other countries.


Enclave Apartments

Exclave is derived directly from “enclave”, only used instead to describe a single part of a country isolated from the rest of it by another country or territory (belonging to a different country). Like enclaves, exclaves abound all around the world. Let’s take a look at a few examples below.

Point Roberts, Washington State, U.S.A.

Located about 18 miles south of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and directly south of the U.S.-Canadian border, the census-designated locale of Point Roberts marks the southernmost point of the Tsawwassen Peninsula, the western border of Boundary Bay. When the Oregon Treaty in 1846 was concluded, establishing the border between the U.S. and North American parts of British Empire (later Canada) along the 49th parallel, nobody at the time was aware of what effect this would have on the local areas and, in Point Roberts's case, it was a total goof-up. There were proposals of Point Roberts joining Canada for the obvious reasons, but no action was ever taken. Residents living here enjoy some of the lowest crime rates in America, and the community is home to at least 50 people in the Witness Protection Program, but those luxuries come at a cost. Apart from a gas station, marina, grocery store, and post office, anyone looking for more services must travel back up into Canada and then cross the border again back into the U.S. For kids above third grade, this commute is daily, as they must travel across national boundaries to Blaine for school. But, despite this, the residents still enjoy their peace, and most don’t leave very often anyways.

Enclave definition

Kaliningrad Oblast, Russia

Russia is so huge you would think it wouldn’t even need, let alone have, an exclave of any kind, but here we have one. Located on the eastern Baltic Sea coast, bordered by Lithuania and Poland, Kaliningrad (city) is Russia’s westernmost city, and the country’s only Baltic ice-free port. Thus, it remains of economic interest to Russia, while remaining one of Russia’s most decrepit cities. It’s just strange to think that once the city of Kaliningrad (formerly Konigsberg) was a beautiful Medieval city in the old Kingdom of Prussia (later the leading state of Germany until its abolition by the Allies following World War II, when the city was thoroughly destroyed. Subsequently, as part of the Soviet’s Eastern Bloc, Konigsberg became a Soviet subject, and was renamed Kaliningrad in honor of the Bolshevik hero Mikhail Kalinin. Of course, official visas are required for any of the citizens who wish to travel to the rest of the Motherland by land.

Western Fulton County, Kentucky, U.S.A.

At least in this case, the exclave inconvenience is only between states, but to reach what is called the “Kentucky Bend” one must drive south into Tennessee before driving up north again back into Kentucky. The bend is located at the far southwestern corner of Kentucky, at a point along the Mississippi River where it becomes so slow-moving, because of virtually no elevation differences, that massive oxbow loops are present for much of the rest of the river’s course. Furthermore, in the case of this particular bend, what happened was a series of earthquakes in 1812 changed the course of the river, creating this geographic anomaly. The border between the two states far predates the actual creation of the states with the formation of the Royal Colonial Boundary of 1665, which was meant to prevent overlap between the Colony of Virginia and the Province of North Carolina. In the future, the course of the Mississippi would change due to the aforementioned seismic activity, resulting in the Kentucky Bend becoming an island and then the leftover oxbow lake later being filled in with land.

Caloocan, Philippines


Located in Greater Manila, in fact directly north of Manila along the waterfront, Caloocan is the third most populous city in the Philippines. Caloocan is bisected into its distinctly separate northern and southern sections by Quezon City, which was created in 1939, an action which the citizens of Caloocan put up no opposition against. Today, the northern section is more rural and suburban in nature, while the southern portion is more fully urbanized.
