How to make the most of time spent with cherished company.
Bethesda Maryland was voted one of the best places to live in America by Money magazine in 2018. Located just outside Washington D.C., Bethesda has a thriving cultural scene including fine dining, performing arts, and shopping. For those seeking retirement living, the area has many options, but perhaps none as impressive as Maplewood Park Place. Chic urban living meets small town feeling at this Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC). Part of what makes Maplewood Park Place feel so homey is that it is resident-owned, everything is under the same roof. It is just the right size to get to know all your neighbors. Residents own their homes and enjoy having friends and family come stay for a visit.
Seeing is Believing
A lot of people begin their retirement living journey with a tour or visit. Owner residents at Maplewood Park Place are proud to show off their home to friends, family, and prospective residents. This type of community can feel more like a friendly small town rather than a retirement community, and residents have more control and say throughout the community. Many owner residents look forward to week-long summer visits from their children and grandchildren.
Inviting your friends to visit is a great way for them to picture what life could be like if they choose to relocate to Maplewood Park Place. Afterall, the best advertisement is word of mouth.
Dining is an activity to be savored at Maplewood Park Place. The Urban Table was recently renovated and offers upscale five-course meals created by our executive chef. The champagne brunch offered every Sunday is a lovely way to unwind and spend some relaxing weekend downtime with friends. The more casual 9707 Café offers the same five-course menu with a different ambiance. And the Market on the Square Bistro offers a deli-style menu with a casual vibe. All provide a perfect setting for delicious food and libations to accompany good conversation.
The customizable apartments at Maplewood Park Place allow you to create kitchen and dining rooms to suit your needs. Some cook and entertain more than others, and the nice part about living here is that you can cook (or not cook) as often as you wish. For those who love hosting a dinner party, but don’t love all the work, our dining staff looks forward to the opportunity to create unforgettable meals for you and your guests right in your apartment or in one of the well appointed community-space options such as the private dining room, club room, or ballroom—for large parties.
Apartments at Maplewood Park Place are spacious and luxurious, and most have room for your guests to stay over for an extended visit.
We offer just as many, if not more perks than a hotel. Staff and residents often say Maplewood Park Place is like a stationary cruise ship. In addition to scrumptious on-site dining options, our fitness center, activities programing, housekeeping, and transportation are also available to those staying with us.Our goal is to make your guests feel warm and welcomed throughout their stay. We even offer complimentary parking.
At the Center of it All
One of the most attractive qualities about Maplewood Park Place is our proximity to downtown Bethesda and the nation’s capital. Separated by only a short drive, both cities offer plenty of recreation options for you to entertain your out-of-town visitors. Start local by showing guests the best of Bethesda. For some, vacation means relaxation, and there are plenty of unique spas in the area. Try something different with a soothing session at the Bethesda Salt Cave. For more traditional spa treatments, Ninotch is considered by many to be one of the best in the state.
Performing arts can be found in abundance. The Round House Theatre brings the best of Broadway and West End to the Potomac area through innovative and distinct productions. Music lovers will surely find something to enjoy about Strathmore, the performing arts venue. Whether it’s classical or contemporary, Strathmore has a variety of programing. For a more intimate evening with friends, try the Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club. A different artist can be heard every night of the week along with high-end dining.
Museums and galleries are a great reason to visit Washington D.C. but if traffic is something you’d rather avoid, visit our local art scene. Modern art enthusiasts must make a trip to Waverly Street Gallery, which specializes in bringing cutting-edge visual artists’ work to the city. All ages will be intrigued by the many tech-focused exhibits at the KID Museum.
When it comes to hosting your visitors, Maplewood Park Place is the most hospitable place in town. Forget expensive hotels that require you and your guests to shuttle between destinations. We can help you make your home the perfect set-up for hosting family, friends and most important—grandchildren. Bethesda has so much to see and do, but fun and games can be found in our community as well. Let us help you make memories with your loved ones.
