Breathtaking mountain views are just the beginning of what you’ll love about beautiful Pisgah Valley Retirement Community. Located in Candler, just 15 minutes from Asheville, North Carolina, Pisgah Valley is known for its charming neighborhoods, serene country lifestyle and foundational philosophy of wellness. Explore the great outdoors on stunning nature trails. Enjoy an ever-expanding roster of amenities. We’re committed to warm, personal attention and creating programs and services that keep you feeling your best and striving for new goals in strength and wellness.
Wellness as a Way of Life
From the beginning, our active retirement community has placed wellness of body, mind and spirit at the heart of all we do. Beyond the health benefits of the magnificent natural surroundings, you can increase your wellness focus daily at our outstanding Wellness Center. Features include a spectacular indoor swimming pool, spa, sauna, Nautilus® cardio and strength-training equipment, nutrition guidance, yoga classes and more.
Our outstanding Wellness Center is free for residents and memberships are available for public purchase.
One of the unique features of Pisgah Valley Retirement Community is its focus on individualized lifestyle. Our philosophy honors the uniqueness of each individual and the varying lifestyle choices of our residents. No cookie-cutter living for Pisgah Valley.
As a reflection of this philosophy, Pisgah Valley Retirement Community does NOT have a required meal plan. Individuals and couples often enjoy their own cooking and recipes; many people enjoy eating out or dining with friends. The lovely open floor plans of the patio homes encourage dining in or entertaining. Best of all, you are not paying for a meal you are not eating when cooking for yourself, entertaining, or dining out. Flexibility and individuality are key to life at Pisgah Valley Retirement Community.
For those times when you are tired of cooking for yourself, the dining area in Pisgah Villa is open and available with buffet dining.
Endless Opportunities and Countless New Friends
Life at Pisgah Valley is all about new opportunities to expand your horizons, your enjoyment of life and your circle of friends. Renew a long-lost hobby. Dive into a fresh interest. Explore the unknown. Whether you’re a book lover, bridge player, bird watcher, photography buff, golfer or movie fan, we’ll help you find or start a club and connect with others who share your interests.
Stay cultured and connected with field trips to Asheville’s galleries, theaters and concert venues. Keep up with onsite lectures and educational programs, as well as classes at Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, affiliated with UNC Asheville. We also provide transportation for a shopping trip to Asheville every week, plus so much more.
All of these opportunities compliment the wellness program to stimulate the other dimensions of wellness such as emotional, social, and spiritual health so that you enjoy a true and full sense of multi-dimensional wellbeing.
