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.

“It’s really improved our quality of life. We have more time to do the things we really like to do.”

So It Wasn’t A Gray Wolf…

 By Diane Patricia Barrett, Becketwood Member …it was probably a gray fox. I knew it wasn’t a dog, and I knew (mostly) that it wasn’t an apparition, and it was, well, otherworldly given its appearance right in the heart of the city. And the way that its singular, muscular gray body tore through the bushes […] Read more

Patience Does Not Come Easy

By George Lundgren, Becketwood Member Patience does not come easy But waddles slowly, dragging its lizard tail. It dawdles through random chops of now, Squeezes between the blank spots of the blizzard, Sneaks through the cracks in the floor, Drips all night as it creeps up to the dawn. Or just trickles in under life’s […] Read more
