The Chesapeake is a close-knit community in a beautiful location with all the perks of a rewarding retirement lifestyle.

Read on to discover why The Chesapeake is a hidden gem in senior living and why it’s one of the best places to retire in the Virginia peninsula:

Maintenance-Free Living

One of the best benefits of moving to a senior living community is the freedom from responsibility and hassles of home maintenance, and at The Chesapeake, we take maintenance-free living to the next level. With lawn mowing, groundskeeping, maintenance and repairs provided by a professional team, you can enjoy everything about your new home without having to lift a finger. We take care of all of the details so you can spend more time enjoying what makes you happy and healthy.

Walkable Neighborhoods

A beautifully maintained campus with walkable neighborhoods helps you stay connected with the outdoors, providing opportunities to gather with friends and neighbors. The Chesapeake offers 35 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds featuring walking paths, courtyards and gardens, including vegetable, flower and butterfly gardens. Plus, residents have convenient access to an indoor walking course that’s perfect for rainy days.

Resort-Style Amenities

Discover an abundance of amenities designed to make life easier so you can enjoy the lifestyle you’ve earned. The Chesapeake is filled with upscale amenities and programs, including restaurant-style dining, a fitness center, heated indoor saltwater pool, beauty salon/barbershop, billiards and game rooms, and so much more. Explore oil and acrylic painting, fused glass and jewelry making in our creative arts studio. Or try your hand at woodworking, stained glass creations and crafting projects in our hobby shop. You’ll find countless ways to pursue your passions and spend time with friends who share your zest for life.

A Strong Presence of Retired Veterans

At The Chesapeake, one of the ways we thank and celebrate veterans every day for their service and the freedoms we enjoy is through our Veteran’s Honor Benefit. It provides an exceptional monetary thank-you on the cottage or apartment of choice for veterans and their spouses. Our goal is to make it easier for them to join our senior living community and start enjoying our wide array of services and amenities. Our community has a strong presence of retired veterans and their families, and if you visit The Chesapeake, you can also meet Navy veteran and community team member Keith Watkins.

High-Quality Senior Care

Choosing a senior living community with a continuum of care provides the peace of mind of knowing you can stay in one place if you need higher levels of care in the future. Residents enjoy priority access to a full range of health services on campus, including Assisted Living, Memory Support, Skilled Nursing and Senior Rehabilitation. The Chesapeake’s Health Care Center, with a 5-Star rating from CMS, provides 24-hour nursing care for residents, whether for short- or long-term recuperation. Physical, occupational and speech therapies are also available on-site. As a resident, you’ll always have the expert care you need for the years ahead.

Pricing that Works for You

 Living in an all-inclusive retirement community is more affordable than you think when you choose The Chesapeake. We offer two financial options to help you plan a secure future and protect against the rising costs of senior care.
