An urban senior living experience with the soul of a small town. That’s what you will find when you live at The Chateau. Our retirement community is adjacent to a quiet, suburban neighborhood and directly surrounded by churches and schools. Not far away, you'll find healthcare service providers, numerous country clubs, and the beautiful Gabe Nesbitt Community Park, which offers many seniors-only aquatic classes and activities.
Just 30 miles north of downtown Dallas, McKinney is a welcoming city with tree-lined streets, beautiful green spaces, and a charming historic downtown area with a strong sense of community. When you live at The Chateau independent living community, you’re only seven miles from downtown Main Street, which is home to quaint shops, sidewalk cafes, galleries, and even mounted police!

Fitness Right at Home
The Chateau residents enjoy a variety of health and fitness activities, from weekly group exercise classes to anytime access to on-site fitness equipment.
There's a group that goes out for daily sunset walks. Exercise, exquisite scenery, and enjoying time with friends, a definite win! The Zumba class is also popular, the instructor is amazing.
Let Us Serve You
Enjoy restaurant-style dining served with courtesy and caring by our staff who know you. Chef-prepared meals are served every day in The Chateau's dining room. Sit with friends or invite your family for a special occasion in our private dining room. Each meal is designed to meet the unique nutritional needs of community members
Once a month the chef hosts a roundtable where residents can provide feedback on the menu, and sometimes suggest family recipes. We try to make it a collaborative effort. One thing everyone asks for over and over is the chef's surf and turf.
Make Memories Exploring the Surrounding Community
There’s so much to explore in the McKinney area and The Chateau makes sure that residents experience as much as possible. Regular outings to favorite restaurants, local events, and more introduce residents to all their neighborhood has to offer and connect them to the surrounding community.
There's a group that gets together to go out to a new restaurant every month. This is a fantastic group to join for all you foodies! Some of the popular bus excursions include trips to the casino, wineries, the mall, and just heading out for a scenic drive.
Life is Never Boring
The Chateau's comprehensive calendar is packed with both recurring activities and special events. The variety of available activities is meant to enrich the whole person by stimulating physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, creative, social or vocational wellness.
For those with a green thumb, there a community garden that residents care for, and the fruits of their labor are often used in the community kitchen.
Pets Make Life Better
Furry friends are welcomed as residents at The Chateau. We understand how important the companionship and bond that seniors share with their pets. We’re delighted to have cats, dogs, birds, and even bunnies as part of our community.
If you don't have a pet of your own, there's a resident dog named Cecil that all of the residents have adopted as the community pet.
Stay Connected with Technology and Wifi
The Chateau is fully equipped with WiFi access to help you stay connected throughout common areas. You can use a community desktop to stay up to date, or you can connect your personal devices to the WiFi in common areas throughout.
There is a Tech Tuesday program where residents receive help with any issues they may have with their devices. Basic classes are sometimes offered as well.
Travel and Adventure is Always Available
The exclusive Travel & Stay program offers residents exciting opportunities to travel around the country, with free stays of up to seven days at any of Holiday Retirement’s more than 260 communities. Three chef-prepared meals are included with each trip. Visit all 43 states or just choose a favorite new location or two.
The Chateau also operates a program that lets residents get a taste of faraway countries. Once a month, residents can enjoy a themed happy hour with music, food, and presentations related to a new country. They also get a stamp in their community passport.
Lend a Helping Hand
Many residents find a sense of fulfillment in donating their time and skills to a cause close to their hearts. Kindergarten kids come in and sing songs for our large group of Veterans. We have school volunteers that come in and help set up the dining room on Tues/Thurs, and special needs adults that do the same on Mon/Weds/Fri.
We have empowered residents to become resident ambassadors. These individuals have often lived in the community for quite some time and enjoy helping new residents get acclimated to senior living. They encourage new residents to take their time settling in and them feel comfortable in their new home.
Join us for a Complimentary Meal
At Holiday Retirement, we love our food and know you will too. We invite you and a guest to join us for a flavorful meal and the opportunity to see first-hand if independent retirement living is right for you.
