bigbuttonMove-In now!

For a select time, The Village at Orchard Ridge—A National Lutheran Community has openings available for immediate reservation.

The Village at Orchard Ridge is nestled on 132 green and wooded acres tucked away in the idyllic northern Shenandoah Valley, just outside historic Winchester, Virginia. Our residential options include 324 independent living apartment and cottage homes, beautifully appointed and designed for comfortable living and entertainment with friends. The average wait time to move-in to our community is up to two years. However, we have a small window of opportunity for reservation now! 

The shelter-in-place restrictions the global COVID-19 pandemic created across the nation, brought move-ins to a virtual halt this spring, creating a limited-time opportunity for faster access to our community and cost savings on select residences. Residents and team members at The Village at Orchard Ridge are very pleased with how well we’ve managed the pandemic. We have demonstrated an exceptional infection control record with early protocols enacted to keep our community outbreak-free; to date, we have had only one resident test positive for and recover from COVID-19—out of a resident body comprising over 450 older adults. This is just one reason why our residents say they feel safer at Orchard Ridge than they would in the outside community.

With our excellent COVID prevention record and several home styles available for immediate reservation, there’s no better time than now to make The Village at Orchard Ridge your home!
