From expansive cottages to apartment living, Tel Hai Retirement Community offers a vast array of living accommodations. For Bitsy and Art Schravesande—who joined the community in April—Tel Hai fit their needs and has enhanced their lifestyle.

A Life Plan Community like Tel Hai Retirement Community affords residents the opportunity to experience life to the fullest, all under one roof. With the opening of 105 StoneCroft apartments in 2015, residents, family, friends and future residents are already exploring the advantages to life at Tel Hai.

Brownstone—Tel Hai’s latest expansion effort—is the final wing of accommodations adjoining StoneCroft. The fourstory structure will include 45 apartment homes; parking under the building for 28 vehicles; and expansive common spaces featuring additional amenities, as well as ample room for hobbies and resident functions.

Ranging in size from 954 to 2,182 sq. ft., Brownstone offers nine spacious floor plans, four of which are new to Tel Hai’s dynamic offerings. With absolutely stunning views, the new residences are sure to impress. Pricing and floor plan details are now available.

Construction is expected to begin in September 2016, and the community anticipates welcoming new residents in the fall of 2017. Brownstone will encompass more than 103,500 sq. ft. and is connected to StoneCroft Commons, which includes spaces like the Center for Worship & Performing Arts, Aquatics Center and Clark Gallery. The Commons has already become a hub for enriching interactions, engaging programming and social activities.

For new residents like Bitsy and Art Schravesande, Tel Hai offers a unique combination of accommodations and amenities that is hard to find. Planners by nature, the couple conducted exhaustive research before finally deciding to follow their instincts and move to Tel Hai. 

“We visited and explored more than eight communities during our research phase,” Art said. “We joined the future resident list in 2010, and we just always came back to comparing other communities to Tel Hai’s standards.” 

While they continued to research retirement communities, the Schravesandes began to realize that waiting too long to move could be detrimental. Art recalled, “As Meals on Wheels volunteers, we saw too many of our neighbors and friends remain in their homes too long. We wanted to move when it wasn’t overwhelming, and we had the energy to do it.”

Once they decided that it was time to make a move, Art and Bitsy knew just where to turn. It was the place they kept returning to: Tel Hai. Even before moving, they knew the campus would be a perfect fit.

“It was time to join a retirement community where we could share our songs and memories with our neighbors,” Bitsy noted. “It’s a beautiful campus in a rural setting that has a religious basis, great living options, meets our needs, and is also affordable.”

Prospective residents can learn more about the Tel Hai lifestyle and meet residents like Art and Bitsy who will share the details about “Life on the Hill” by attending a “Taste of Tel Hai” event. Events are held throughout the year. During the event, Tracy Weaver, Retirement Counselor, will review residential living options like the Brownstone and provide an informative overview on Tel Hai’s history, benefits and services.
