Summit by Morrison Senior Living Community Completes Construction on Independent Living Cottages

Major milestone keeps first-of-its-kind Whitefield facility on-track to open full community in April 2018

Summit by Morrison is a significant step closer to welcoming residents in just a few months. Fourteen Independent Living cottages, a key element of Summit’s unique senior living community, are complete. Construction will now focus on finishing Summit House, the community’s main building which offers additional Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care living options. The entire community is on schedule to open in April 2018.

“There is great excitement around Summit by Morrison’s progress and we are proud to have reached this major milestone,” said Chad Dingman, Executive Director of the Morrison and Summit by Morrison. “Our team has given dozens of tours, and many units have already been reserved by prospective residents. Demand is very strong for our unique facility in the White Mountains region.”

Built on the sterling reputation of its sister facility a few miles away, Morrison Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Care, Summit by Morrison is a first-of-its-kind senior living community in the heart of New Hampshire’s White Mountains region.

Unlike any other, Summit offers multiple housing options for seniors who wish to remain in one community as their need for assistance changes:

  • 14 Independent Living cottages
  • 33 Independent Living apartments
  • 24 Assisted Living apartments
  • 12 Apartments for residents who may need Memory Care

The spacious, 1,400-square-foot Independent Living cottages are a short distance from Summit House and offer the privacy of a home with full access to the services, activities and amenities of the Summit by Morrison community. The two-bedroom and two-bathroom cottages feature full kitchens, with plenty of closet and storage space, soundproof walls, radiant heat, nine-foot ceilings, carpeting and non-skid flooring. Each cottage has individual heating and cooling systems and an attached, oversized, one-car garage, with additional parking options available.

Summit House will also feature many amenities for residents to enjoy, including a two-level, restaurant-style dining room, beauty salon, library and an auditorium to view movies and attend events. Area residents will also be invited to attend events hosted at Summit by Morrison. With spacious grounds, onsite activities, and close proximity to the region’s attractions, dining, shopping, healthcare and other essential services, residents will enjoy an active lifestyle.

Summit by Morrison is currently accepting deposits from those who wish to reserve their future residences. Tours are available of the completed Independent Living cottages and the Independent Living and Assisted Living apartments and Memory Care suites located in Summit House.
