Our Community in Huntington, WV
Woodlands Retirement Community is located just south of Interstate 64 in Huntington, West Virginia, and just minutes from the hustle and bustle of the city and in the heart of the Tri-State region. The community enjoys spectacular views of both the mountains and the valley around Huntington and supports active living for seniors.
Our 171-acre campus has a central apartment building with common areas and a Health Care wing, including an in-house primary care clinic, all under one roof. Cottages, which are freestanding homes, are available on our campus for independent living residents as well. Apartments range from studios to sizable two-bedroom apartment homes. The architecture of our main residential complex includes turrets, and the turrets create light, bright, inviting residences, many of which have views of the ponds, fountains and walking trails that grace our campus.
DINING AT WOODLANDS
At Woodlands, we offer residents a truly wonderful dining experience by pairing our expertise in preparing quality foods with the freedom to choose from the diverse array of meals and entrée options that we serve each day from our beautiful dining room. Our chefs take a seasonal approach to ensure that meals are fresh, wholesome, nutritious and most important – delicious.
Our Director of Dining Services/Chef, Ron Smith, is a highly successful restaurateur who has had decades of experience in the food and beverage industry.He and his team bring amazing dining experiences to life for our residents.Woodlands even has specialty chef who prepares freshly baked pastry items each and every day for residents to enjoy in the main lobby.
While we offer every resident the convenience of three prepared meals every day in the main dining room, Independent Living residents have fully equipped kitchens in each of their apartments for the times when they want to prepare meals on their own.
Health Services Dining
Our Assisted Living and Memory Support living areas each have dining rooms for their residents, where three meals are served daily. Meals largely correspond to those being served in the main Independent Living dining room, but also include access to meals that meet therapeutic dietary requirements.
Woodlands offers a unique and beautiful private dining room that is available to reserve for family gatherings or special occasions. Our residents can also enjoy the private dining room when they purchase tickets for Chef’s Table Dinners, special events periodically hosted and centered around a gourmet meal specially prepared by our culinary team.
Celebrating is something we love to do, and our dining staff is an integral part of the many special celebrations and events that take place throughout the year. From birthday dinners on the last Friday of every month, to summer Parties on the Patio that allow residents to fully experience Woodlands panoramic views, to the preparation of exceptional holiday meals, our dining staff works hard to make our residents feel right at home with family, friends and great food.
The Bistro is located on the ground floor of Woodlands main independent living apartment complex and provides an additional venue for residents to enjoy special events. It features a restaurant-style atmosphere and provides a casual menu as an alternative to the gourmet offerings of Woodlands’ main dining room.
