Becketwood Cooperative
An Active, Independent 55+ Community of Owners in Minneapolis
 
“Becketwood is a welcoming 55+ cooperative community of lively and spirited owners, located on 12 beautiful wooded acres on the Mississippi, convenient to all that Minneapolis-St. Paul has to offer.”

Becketwood is a great choice for active, independent senior living in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. Our location is beautifully convenient – 12 wooded acres along the Mississippi River bluffs, just across the river from St. Paul. Becketwood features distinctive Tudor-style construction in a natural, park like setting.

We enjoy our cooperative living style, special amenities, exciting activities and events, gardening, hiking and biking, delicious dining, lifelong learning, inviting living spaces, friendly and responsive staff and a lively, spirited group of Members with passion and vitality.

This is the place to be if you are still working and contending with the daily drudgery of home maintenance and repairs. Our maintenance-free lifestyle means that you will have more time to pursue your special interests and still work full or part time.

And when you want to travel or spend time at your second home, you can close the door to your Becketwood unit and not worry about the possibility of a flooded basement or a leaky roof. Becketwood is a great choice. You are invited to see for yourself. Find out if Becketwood is right for you, and join us for a guided tour.
