The tried-and-true real estate mantra, “location, location, location,” applies equally when looking for a retirement community! And choosing such a community in Westchester County, New York, comes with location and lifestyle perks you just won’t find anywhere else.
When you live at The Knolls, for example, located in Valhalla (Westchester), you not only have proximity and easy access to New York City and all its renowned offerings, but you will also have a wonderful opportunity to explore the very best of Westchester County and the surrounding area. For those who love to spend time outdoors, you can enjoy the magnificent Kensico Dam Plaza right in Valhalla, explore the farm and grounds at Stone Barns Center in Pocantico Hills, or drive north along the scenic west bank of the Hudson River for a short trip to popular Bear Mountain in Harriman.
Call yourself a foodie? Well, you’ll be pleased to know that connoisseurs of cuisine flock to Westchester County for some of the region’s finest dining options including Benjamin Steakhouse, Piero’s Restaurant and Sofrito. If you also enjoy film, theatre, music and/or museums, Westchester County has stellar options for you to experience including the Jacob Burns Film Center, the Tarrytown Music Hall and ArtsWestchester.
The Knolls’ proximity to Westchester County Airport (HPN) also makes it easy to plan retirement traveling. The airport is only about 20 minutes from The Knolls’ campus, and you can use it to jet just about anywhere in the U.S. with flight service by American Airlines, JetBlue, Delta, United and more.
If you prefer to ride the rails, The Knolls is just a short ride to the Valhalla train station for a quick trip to Grand Central Station, the rail gateway to any number of destinations including New York, Niagara Falls, Chicago, Washington, D.C. and New Orleans. And, with its close proximity to NYC, residents living at The Knolls can easily access popular shipping ports –for cruise travel – or any of the metro area’s three major airports, JFK, LaGuardia and Newark for domestic and international flights.
Another perk of choosing a continuing care retirement community in New York, at large, is that communities within the state must take steps to maintain high levels of care and fiduciary responsibility. The Knolls is sponsored by Bethel Homes and Services, a local, not-for-profit organization with more than 100 years of serving seniors in Westchester. This expertise and history of service add additional comfort knowing that The Knolls, a not-for-profit organization, is an extension of Bethel’s mission.
