How does it feel to live a life filled with resort-style amenities like chef-prepared meals, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and an indoor heated salt-water pool? What’s it like waking each morning knowing you have access to a creative arts studio and woodworking shop, fascinating lectures and classes, and the charming seaside atmosphere of historic downtown Mystic, Connecticut?
Just ask the residents of StoneRidge. They love where they live and love to share their stories. Listen to what living at StoneRidge means to them.
In Their Own Words
There’s nothing quite like hearing what a place is like from the people who make it home. Here are a few words from a StoneRidge Resident, Harvey W. Austin, MD:
“Our house getting to be too much? Yes.
Moving closer to Arleen’s daughter in Old Lyme? You bet. Yet, moving to a retirement community with all those old folks? Didn’t like that idea so much.
My wife and I were so uncertain about retiring to a community we didn’t expect to hear, ‘We should have come here sooner.’ Yet we heard that frequently. Not once have we heard, ‘I came here too soon.’
Arleen did the research for a dozen places in Connecticut. Moving three thousand miles from Oregon meant we had to get it right the first time.
We have lived at StoneRidge for five months. It has become our home. We got it right.
We love being here, way more than we supposed. Two special reasons above and beyond the great facilities, the caring staff and the terrific food.
Joy. I have never been with a happier group of people. We laugh a lot, we eat together, we play a lot.
Community. We had assumed our neighborhood was a community. No, just a group of big houses. But StoneRidge is a community. And I have discovered I love the idea that I shall grow old with such delightful folks.
Being here has exceeded my greatest expectations.”
