As a shareholder of one of the fourteen Stonewood Cottages, you’ll enjoy the perfect combination of independent living and easy access to everything going on next door at Bartlett House. You’re welcome to join exercise classes, attend lectures and concerts, and use the library. You also have an open invitation to enjoy a meal in the dining room whenever you desire.
A modern, barrier-free home
Your cottage will have a living room, two bedrooms, 1-1/2 bathrooms, a four-season sunroom, private deck, and attached garage. You’ll never be bothered with such chores as lawn maintenance, leaf raking, snow shoveling, and trash removal, as they’ll all be taken care of. Sewer, water, and property taxes are also included in the monthly homeowner’s fee, which is one of the lowest in Maine and all of New England.
“We love having our own cottage, but the best part is living in this wonderful community.” — Don and Sylvia, Cottage Owners of eight years
Adding greatly to the pleasures of living here are the beautifully landscaped grounds and the distinctive, well-planned Bartlett House. Your apartment will include a living room, one or two bedrooms, full bathroom, a completely applianced kitchen, and a private deck or balcony. What will really make it your home are your favorite furnishings, as well as treasured photos and mementos you’ll want to show your neighbors. With friends throughout the community, it’s easy to invite them over. And when you prefer quiet time for resting, reading, or pursuing a hobby, your home will be your peaceful haven.

A neighborhood of friends
Also nearby is the dining room, where you’ll enjoy continental breakfast at your leisure and share the latest news over the day’s main meal, served at midday. Most residents prepare their own supper in their apartments, but you may also arrange for a third, lighter meal to be served in the dining room.
The welcoming social areas and patios are popular places to gather, while our media room is the scene of all sorts of events, including lectures and musical performances. There’s also a fire-placed parlor, library, game room, and hair salon.
Your family is always welcome
We encourage you to invite your family to visit often. All of us — both residents and staff — enjoy getting to know them, and we find that residents’ family members become part of our extended family.
Bring your pet!
You’re welcome to share your apartment with your beloved pet, too. We love animals, just like you do. We even have a four-legged staff member named Independence.
“I love living at Bartlett Woods! Everything is taken care of so I can enjoy myself. The staff is caring, friendly, and very helpful – they’re like old friends. If I need anything (at any time of the day or night) it’s just a call away. I am so glad I moved here.” — Louise, Resident of three years
Should you require assistance, we’ll provide it right in your apartment
Bartlett Woods is a leader in offering increasing assisted-living services without requiring you to move, and that means additional savings for you. Unlike other retirement communities, you have the freedom here to choose independent living, assisted living, or anything in between while staying in the same apartment.
Economical and custom-tailored just for you
Of course we must charge for assisted-living services, but our à la carte menu of choices, all offered at very reasonable fees, makes it easy and economical to design your own personalized package. Choose just what you need, whether it is a little help with dressing or more specialized services. If you require additional assistance in the future, we’ll work with you, your family, and your doctor to make the necessary arrangements while always ensuring that you are as independent as possible. And you can count on our staff to be entirely discreet about the help you are receiving: We value your privacy as much as you do.
“It's so nice knowing we won't have to move if we need more assistance. We enjoy every day right here with our friends - It's like one big happy family” — George & Joan, Residents of two years
We are currently adding 24 new one- and two-bedroom apartments! With spacious rooms and well-planned layouts, they will include such extra conveniences as walk-in showers and washer/dryers.

We even have our own resident dog, Independence. She is full of love and spends lots of time with our residents
This is the only retirement community choice in Maine that offers a complete spectrum of lifestyle options – from independent living to assisted living – all in one warm, stable, and homelike environment. When you make an apartment at Bartlett Woods your home, you can relax in the wonderful knowledge that, should you need more help in the future, you won’t be asked to move to a different part of the building. We will provide you with whatever help you request right in your apartment. We do not believe in separating people from their friends and spouses just because their needs for assistance increase.
