Open your door to a whole new landscape.

Covenant Woods is unique among Richmond-area senior living retirement communities. Our beautiful natural campus has a relaxed, suburban feeling while being conveniently located near everything you love about the greater Richmond area. As you set about choosing how you want to spend your days, you’ll enjoy the opportunity to hike a nature trail in the morning, meet friends for a delicious farm-to-table lunch at mid-day, and head to nearby downtown Richmond to take in the hottest Broadway musical or a symphony performance. It’s the best of all worlds and, when you choose an apartment or cottage at Covenant Woods, it’s all just outside your door.

Our selection of floor plans offers variety in size, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, and other amenities including a study, a patio or balcony, or even a gas fireplace. Plus, it’s nice to know that your home here is more than the footprint of your apartment or cottage. With 90 acres of outdoor space and a host of amenities, you’ll have plenty of room to roam. We invite you to peruse our floor plans and imagine your life at Covenant Woods.

“My husband and I chose to move to Covenant Woods largely for its promise of providing future health care. But we had no idea it would be so much fun. We have developed wonderful friendships with bright and interesting neighbors. The social events, dining, entertainment, and activities keep us busy and engaged. We’re extremely happy we made the decision to move here.”

— Anne H., Covenant Woods resident

The Manor and Manor West: Live in the heart of our community

When you choose an apartment in The Manor or Manor West, you’ll enjoy independent living close to the dining and amenities of Centerpointe and with easy access to all the amenities of The Lodge via an enclosed walkway. This is also where you’ll find our newly redesigned Rowan one-bedroom floor plan as well as larger floor plans with more than 1,300 square feet. All offer large windows, a full kitchen, walk-in closets, a washer and dryer, and more. It’s everything you need all under one roof.

The Lodge: Enjoy beautiful views of our campus

Just beyond The Manor and connected by an enclosed walkway known as The Link, you’ll find the beautifully appointed apartment homes and amenities of The Lodge. With seven different floor plans ranging from 1,028 to more than 1,660 square feet, residences in The Lodge feature open concept living areas, walk-in closets, an abundance of natural light, balconies, and other available amenities such as gas fireplaces. And, thanks to The Link and underground parking with elevator access, you’ll never have to step outside in inclement weather — unless you want to.

Cottages: The living space you’re looking for

Imaging having the extra space and privacy of a freestanding home with none of the chores of home maintenance. That’s cottage living at Covenant Woods. The cottage homes in each of our three neighborhoods feature spacious, open floor plans with high ceilings, gas fireplaces, and well-equipped kitchens. You’ll also appreciate driving up to your professionally manicured lawn and straight into your attached garage. Cottage floor plans range in size from 1,500 square feet to 1,987 square feet.

Which residency agreement is right for you?

Covenant Woods recognizes that residents have different needs, preferences, and budgets. That’s why we offer a selection of residency agreements. Our Lifecare contract offers the assurance of guaranteed priority access to our full continuum of on-site health care should you ever need it, with no significant increase in monthly fees. You’ll also have the security of knowing you can remain in the community for life, even if you outlive your resources through no fault of your own. It’s a priceless benefit that will help you and your family rest easy. For residents who maintain long-term care insurance or choose not to select Lifecare, fee-for-service plans are also available.
