Experience the rich coastal history of New England at Kittery Estates retirement community in Kittery, the oldest town in Maine. The senior living community is just a three-minute walk from the Kittery Historical & Naval Museum, where you can see shipyard and lighthouse equipment from days gone by. Stroll a few minutes more and you’re in a charming town center home to a bagel shop, billiards lounge and old-school diner.
Residents of the independent living community also enjoy living within 10 minutes of the region’s top sites. At the USS Albacore maritime museum, you can peer through the periscope of a former Navy research submarine. A few minutes away, enjoy a stroll along the waterside trails of Prescott Park, which regularly hosts events like outdoor movie nights, arts and dance festivals, and live theatre.
Kittery Estates is an award-winning, independent senior living community. Awards include the 2020 Great Place to Work certification and the 2019 Great Place to Work certification.
