Whole-person health: body, mind, spirit.
Set on 48 acres of lush, rolling woodlands with sweeping views of the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina, Ardenwoods’ inspiring natural setting offers the perfect surroundings for an active, independent lifestyle that daily nurtures your physical, mental, and social well-being.
Active retirement starts here.
Our Pathways Wellness program guides you and our team to fulfill your goals to live a long and happy life. When you move to Ardenwoods, our Wellness Navigator will learn more about your physical fitness goals and guide you through the wellness schedule, which includes classes on aerobic fitness, water walking, yoga, flexibility, balance, and more!
Rediscover your passions.
Here at Ardenwoods you’ll be inspired to do the things you want to do. And with our many included services—maintenance, housekeeping, groundskeeping—you’ll have more time to do them than ever before. Join friends in our billiards room and library, explore your artistic side in our arts studio and woodworking shop, or dig your green thumb into our herb, vegetable, and flower garden. Do it all and more, and—most importantly—do it on your schedule.
Social opportunities at every turn.
Our community thrives on coming together for fun and entertainment. Whether it’s on-campus events like games, dances, holiday celebrations, ice cream socials, and movie nights, or outings to theater performances, concerts, festivals, and more—there’s no end to the daily excitement at Ardenwoods Retirement Community.
