Author Your Lifestyle.

If being near to what matters most makes a difference to you, The Woodlands is definitely worth a tour. All the cultural attractions of downtown Greenville are just 16 minutes away, yet you are surrounded by rolling green hills on a campus steeped in wooded nature. Whether you prefer to explore nature on foot through our beautiful community, or on bike along the nearby Swamp Rabbit Trail, or in a golf cart on the Furman University Golf Course, you will find no shortage of opportunities to stay active.

The best part of living here is sharing new experiences with good friends. As a community of lifelong learners, you’ll find amiable companions who are actively engaged in authoring life’s next chapter together. They find inspiration with classes and lectures at The Woodlands community and OLLI on the Furman University campus. Plus, everything you loved about the collegiate experience is available, including lectures, sports events, live performances of music, dance and theater and connecting with younger generations.

And there is more to explore: visit Travelers Rest for lunch and shopping. Drive the Blue Ridge Mountains. Enjoy the afternoon experiencing Greenville. If you’d rather lay low and enjoy the splendor that surrounds you, nothing beats a quiet night watching the fireflies twinkle at dusk. Or waking up inspired for a brisk walk, a refreshing swim or outdoor yoga in the morning sun. And it’s all just steps from where you live.

Come for a tour and meet a tribe of kindred spirits who share your passion for life.

An experienced team ready to serve.

While many businesses and communities struggle to recruit and retain qualified employees, The Woodlands at Furman has cultivated a dedicated, experienced group of team members, many of whom have been with us for many years. This depth of expertise, commitment and tenure sets us apart from other senior living communities. It also speaks to how we treat both those who work for us and the residents we serve. In addition, many of our leadership team hail from hospitality backgrounds and it shows in little touches and great service. We’re excited to make your acquaintance. And make an impression!

Where wellness is a way of life.

Studies show that being part of an active social network of encouraging peers motivates people to exercise longer and more frequently.

After all, we all want to enjoy an active lifestyle to continue doing the things we love.
