From Pittsburgh, PA to Frederick, MD to Easton, PA, our Pennsylvania and Maryland retirement homes are located within an easy drive of historical, cultural and entertainment destinations.

The close proximity of these sights is a bonus for residents of our senior communities and their out-of-town families and friends who are visiting them at Country Meadows.

Residents, as well as friends and family members of all ages, can always find plenty to do, whether they’re looking for excitement, relaxation or culture.

“Best places to retire”

Two of our retirement communities are located in cities that have been named among “the best places in the United States to retire” by Forbes, the financial publishing and media company. Forbes granted that designation to Pittsburgh, the City of Bridges, in 2015 and 2016 and to Bethlehem, Christmas City USA, in 2017. Both cities were cited for their cost of living, median home price, number of physicians per capita and walkability, as well as other attributes.
