Community Information

Mission: Enriching and improving the lives of our residents and those connected to our community.

As soon as you step foot on our 166-acre beautifully manicured campus you’ll know something here is different. Formed over 35 years ago, Carolina Meadows was destined from the beginning to be different. It was designed to be a place where a diverse group of adults could come together and create a relaxing environment where they are free to live a life of relevance. A nonprofit with a strong vision, Carolina Meadows has more than 900 residents who have an active role in making the community enriching and vibrant.

An array of dining options awaits you and your companions at over a half-dozen venues on the Carolina Meadows campus. Enjoy freshly brewed espresso, gelato, and pastries baked in-house, craft beers, fine wine, casual dining, or white tablecloth elegance, all served with a touch of Southern hospitality.

Staying active is an important part of life at Carolina Meadows. Here you can choose from a comprehensive array of fitness, sports and activities offerings. We have strength and cardio equipment and a wide range of group exercise classes at all levels. Certified personal trainers are on hand to create a personalized plan for any individual. Visit with friends, rule the pickleball court, improve your golf game, or immerse in a stimulating lecture series. All serve to enhance your wellness.
