Lively Arts, Soft Music, Informal Discussions.

We just hope you’ll be able to make up your mind.

Our event calendar might look a little cluttered only because there’s so much on every page, from the cultural to the educational to the spiritual. After all, it’s time for you to relax, explore your interests and expand your horizons. That’s why you’re coming to the exciting Chesapeake Bay in the first place.

Attend programs in our Active Aging series. Sign up for lectures on spiritual approaches to aging or on elder law. Donate your time and your skills for various causes or just to help your friends and neighbors keep our own community safe and beautiful.

Exercise your body and your mind! We have our own library, bocce and croquet courts, a tranquil koi pond in our Meditation Garden, and a gorgeous bay view from our Mermaid Garden. Our beautiful Tuttle Courtyard is right beside a fun play-space for our young visitors. Take in some live music at the beach. We have amazing choices! Take a moment to watch our Life on the Bay video to see some of our residents enjoying our community.

Get to know us. This is where you’ll want to be.
Call us today at 800-753-2918, or schedule a visit.
