Enjoying Our Cortland Lifestyle

Our residents are busy taking in the events and attractions around our town.

In our community, we have social happy hours with delicious drinks, and local artists and volunteers visit our community regularly, bringing live music and exciting seminars to our residents. SUNY Grad students and interns are welcomed by the staff and residents every year as they delight our residents with specialty programs.
