Community Amenities

You’re never really retired in Charlottesville



If you haven’t yet been introduced to Charlottesville, Va. you’re in for a treat. Situated about 100 miles from Washington D.C., with Richmond 70 miles to the east, this small city is nestled against Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Thomas Jefferson chose this landscape himself as the most desirable locale in the nation to build a home, a University and an entire community.

History and learning live on in Charlottesville



Charlottesville is a city where something is always happening culturally. The area is home to the University of Virginia, Jefferson’s Monticello, James Madison’s Montpelier and James Monroe’s Highland. The Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia hosts frequent exhibitions, as does the Second Street Gallery. The Virginia Festival of the Book and Virginia Film Festival are nationally known, highly regarded annual events sponsored by UVA. Award-winning wineries, breweries and distilleries, music and theater add to this unending list.

An upscale retirement surrounded by sprawling natural beauty



With majestic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains as a backdrop, you can enjoy just about any outdoor activity you can imagine. Hiking, biking, fishing or birding might get you started. Tennis and golf are other popular choices. Or perhaps just a leisurely stroll along the shops and eateries of Charlottesville’s downtown pedestrian mall. All these places and all these activities are close to our campus. Keswick Hall and Boar’s Head Resort, for instance, are both just minutes away.

Enjoy upscale amenities and a luxurious life



You’ll hear the word hospitality often when you inquire about senior living communities. Presumably, the word signifies the services and amenities a community offers. Our interpretation may be a bit different. To every one of us here at Westminster-Canterbury of the Blue Ridge, hospitality is a measure of the satisfaction and genuine pleasure we derive from doing whatever it takes to please our residents. We make it our business not only to know your preferences, but also to anticipate them. Our community has built a legacy of excellence born from passion that transcends conventional notions of hospitality. Isn’t this what personal service is all about?

Everything you need, close at hand


You’ll also find a full complement of services a short walk from your home – everything from banking to barber shops. Stay physically active through one of our fitness programs, and keep your mind sharp through a lecture of class.
