Grace Ridge offers a variety of residence options – from spacious cottages to cozy apartments, each designed to help you feel at home here – and each with stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Our one- and two-bedroom residences are designed for independent senior living and your individual style. But what truly makes the Grace Ridge lifestyle special are the neighbors and friends here ready to share your passions.
Amenities at Grace Ridge Retirement Community are designed to enrich every aspect of life for our residents and help foster Good Moods. We have it all right here – 24-hour library, fitness room, personal training, rooftop solarium with panoramic mountain views, complimentary golf and fitness memberships, onsite massage therapist and so much more. With our maintenance-free living, you’ll get to spend your time enjoying all that retirement in Western NC has to offer.
Grace Ridge’s dining room offers both elegant and relaxed dining. Our chefs craft menus for all palates and the ambiance makes meals with your friends enjoyable. Whether a quick breakfast, nutritious lunch or multicourse dinner, our dining options are suited to help fuel your active retirement lifestyle. Plus, our newly-opened mountain view Café offers quick bites with breathtaking views.
As a continuing care retirement community, Grace Ridge fosters a lifestyle of total wellness. From our health and wellness program to our state-of-the-art fitness room, total wellbeing is not a goal but a lifestyle. And thanks to our affiliation with Carolinas HealthCare System and our location in “Nature’s Playground,” it’s both easy and enjoyable to engage in better health habits here. For added peace of mind, you can rely on 24-hour emergency response and onsite security at all times.
Helping others enlivens the mind, body and mood, so we honor that tradition with numerous ways for residents to get involved. Grace Ridge has opportunities for community involvement right here on campus, for instance, making toys for children in the hospital. We’ve also aligned the community with various nonprofits to provide volunteer opportunities for residents.
Join the Club
Get involved and gain some new friends by joining one of our resident committees, clubs or interest groups. Maybe playing bridge or billiards is your game. Maybe you’d enjoy hiking or bird-watching. Or dig deep with fellow gardeners who bring life to our raised flower and vegetable beds.
For even greater intellectual stimulation, our residents enjoy cultural excursions to exciting events and destinations throughout Western North Carolina and beyond. Plus, our state-of-the-art theatre gives Grace Ridge residents a front-row seat at the box office year-round.
We welcome people of all faiths for weekly worship services, gospel music and enlightenment in our onsite chapel. Enjoy Sunday worship with the faithful or walk in our gardens to commune with nature. Residents are also invited to join our Spiritual Life Committee and take part in weekly prayer and Bible study groups.
