There are many terrific reasons to choose the historic Hudson Valley as a place to live. Beautiful landscapes, a plethora of diverse cultural experiences and world-class dining options all contribute to what makes Westchester a wonderful place to call home. And who doesn’t love living in a four-season climate, where each change brings its own distinct color and character?
Well, except for winter, maybe, which makes life a little tricky. Even making day-to-day plans can be more difficult because of always needing to check the forecast and adjust to Mother Nature’s whims. But here at The Knolls, you can enjoy the splendor of freshly fallen snow without any of the daily hassles it brings.
Make shoveling a thing of the past
We’ve all been there; waking up to an unexpected snowfall can drastically change your day –before you even get out of bed. Leaving the warmth of the covers early and heading into the bitter cold to shovel is a tough start to any morning. The heavy exertion and the risk of slipping and falling when dealing with snow and ice can be challenging. At The Knolls, our roads are plowed and salted after every snowfall, so you can catch a few extra minutes of shut-eye before you begin your day. Just brush off your car and you’ll be on your way!
Winter woes won’t hold you back at The Knolls
In addition to the physical stresses of winter, there are
financial ones as well. Winterizing your home can become quite expensive very quickly
– and even with those precautions your fuel bill can skyrocket as the
thermostat numbers fall. At The Knolls, we can’t make the Westchester weather
warmer, but we can make the winter more palatable by removing some of those
No more costly upgrades to your home to try and limit your heating bill – it’s
on us! All utilities (heat, hot water, electricity) are already included in
your monthly fee, so there’s no cause for concern from an unexpected bill, even
when temperatures drop.

However, here at The Knolls, there’s always something to do – without ever stepping foot outside! Opportunities for exercise, cultural enrichment and socialization abound, inclement weather notwithstanding. Enjoy a lecture, catch a film or even enjoy group fitness programming like our popular Aqua Zumba® class.
