Fill Your Days in Endless Ways

Experience a carefree lifestyle that is destined to unlock your most precious resource—time. Imagine filling that time with every activity, event, or excursion you have put off for “the right moment.” Now, these opportunities await just outside your door.

And the possibilities are limitless.

Imagine starting your day with a delightful brunch with the couple down the hall, then meeting up in the woodshop with a new friend to work on a project. Take a drawing class with a visiting artist, or attend a lecture from a local author in the auditorium. Wind down the night with a chef-inspired meal at Cafe Vie, or get out to nearby Chicago for a concert.

You’re free to indulge your passions. See where it leads.
