Mid-Atlantic retirees who love sailing, or just appreciate the sailing atmosphere, should visit BayWoods of Annapolis. Maryland’s premiere Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) is sited on the shores of the Chesapeake, in Maryland’s charming capital city. Residents love their water views and the property’s 14 impeccably landscaped and wooded acres. Only 18 miles from BWI/Thurgood Marshall airport, it’s convenient for out-of-town family and friends to come and visit.
Established in 2003, this gracious community has the largest retirement apartments in the area. The 147 units range from 980 to 2,500 square feet. Covered parking spaces protect cars from harsh winter weather.
Most BayWoods residents are vibrant and active, and choose from varied activities that engage multiple interests. They can swim in the bay off the property’s dock, attend a lecture given by neighboring St. John’s scholars, dine formally or informally in two restaurants and relax on their balconies watching sailboats glide by.
BayWoods residents are committed to wellness through fitness events and opportunities, lectures and participation in activities. The community has a full continuum of onsite health-care services including short stay rehab and a 45-bed health care center where patients get all the personal attention one would want.
President and COO Frank McGovern says, “Another of BayWoods distinctions is its ownership structure, which is a for-profit housing co-op. This appeals to Baby Boomers who want to be involved with ownership and management. They also appreciate the tax advantages and the equity. Owners can pass shares on to their heirs.”
