Amenities & Services

Becketwood's thoughtful amenities and services will enhance your lifestyle

Becketwood has an extensive array of benefits that our Members greatly appreciate.

Help yourself to "gourmet casual" cuisine

Our acclaimed chef and the restaurant staff provide fine dining for Members, Waiting List Members and guests seven days a week. We enjoy contemporary cuisine that emphasizes locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables, made-from-scratch soups, entrees and desserts. The staff is also happy to accommodate people with special requests. We think of our food service as “gourmet casual.” We can choose to enjoy the restaurant daily, regularly or just occasionally. Our restaurant staff offers catering services, too. View the current menu for a sample of the dining Members and guests enjoy.

Our handy pantry provides food items that are available for sale 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It couldn’t be easier when you run out of something!


Enjoy rotating art exhibits

Becketwood’s art coordinator organizes a regular series of rotating exhibits in our own gallery. It often features our Members’ collections of artwork. Our hallways provide the setting for a permanent display of prints, drawings and paintings, many of which are owned by our Members.


Peruse the professionally cataloged libraryMember and Grandchildren in Becketwood library, active senior living, Becketwood amenities

We maintain a large, professionally cataloged library that regularly acquires new works of fiction and non-fiction, along with an extensive DVD library. The library committee reviews new books each month in the Becketwood Times newsletter. Because it is self-service, the library is open 24 hours a day and is always available when you need a new book to read.
