Retirement Living Boring? Not at Lake Prince Woods.

Lake Prince Woods is an award-winning retirement community filled with activity! Thanks to a wellness center, computer lab, walking trail, and an abundance of programs, our residents have more choices than they have time. A large library offers the latest hard-bound volumes, as well as audio books and a wide range of movies to choose from.

Our campus provides solitude and relaxing moments too. Residents can enjoy the natural surroundings while relaxing on their enclosed sun porches or at one of the gazebos located throughout campus. Enjoy a New York Times best seller in our library or join our book club for a lively discussion. Join the bridge group to play a few rounds or to learn the rules of the game. Friendships are made along the way and offer plenty of moments to engage and connect, including daily get-togethers.

Culinary delights await you at Lake Prince Woods. Foodies take note: Enjoy our Captain’s Table event, which occurs monthly. Residents indulge their taste buds in an incredible, multi-course dining experience – don’t miss dessert! Our meals are served in the Portsmouth Dining Room and are available for pick up or delivery. At Lake Prince Woods, you decide how to enjoy the kitchen’s bounty.

Days are packed with events to keep folks moving. Lake Prince Woods residents may enjoy a traditional luau in the mid-morning followed by a lunchtime serenade by kettle drum musicians. Then, they can enjoy dinner with friends in the Portsmouth Room for the monthly Chef’s Table – a much-anticipated monthly treat!

In between, enjoy a stroll on our many walking trails and convene with nature, go birding, or take photos of nature. Some residents enjoy outdoor yoga or gathering for a spirited game of bridge. Most of all, Lake Prince Woods engages folks with themed events such as a Roaring 20’s party or a gingerbread house competition. Painting classes, doggie play dates, and the ladies singing group, known as Golden Voices, also help everyone live a happier and healthier lifestyle.
