A Community - A Destination - To Live Fully

Life looks a little different on the flip side of the global pandemic known as coronavirus. Our resilience as a community through these times showed us the strength of our team, the resilience of our community and the compassion of our staff. We are grateful for having more than 90 percent of our resident population vaccinated – giving residents and their loved ones peace of mind to enjoy spending time together again.

If your plans include moving to a community where you can lead a purposeful life - look no further than Virginia Mennonite Retirement Community. We offer unique opportunities to live the life you want for your next season. 

Located in Harrisonburg, Virginia and surrounded by the Blue Ridge and Massanutten Mountains, we offer convenient access to nature's beauty. Enjoy stunning mountain views from your balcony or take a short drive to Shenandoah National Park and enjoy a trail hike or overlook.

Our indoor Main Street, accessible via interconnected hallways from anywhere on campus, is the central hub of our community. Residents shop at the fully stocked Main Street Store for grocery and personal items and fresh produce from our Farm at Willow Run.

Our 40-acre farm property has long been a staple in supplying produce for VMRC dining menus and produce and expands during summers to include CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) baskets delivered to residents on a weekly basis.

Known as the arts retirement community in Harrisonburg, we offer art exhibitions, educational sessions and music events. This rich variety of cultural and wellness programming promotes learning and growth for residents and the community. 

Our proximity to Eastern Mennonite University, James Madison University and Bridgewater College means you will have plenty of opportunities for learning and growing off campus, too. Enjoy continuing education, the arts and collegiate athletics.

We focus on the physical side of wellness too and offer quite a few ways to stay fit and healthy. Our Wellness Center features an indoor Olympic-sized warm water pool, an extensive selection of fitness equipment and group classes. If the outdoors is more your style, enjoy a walk around campus on our Dogwood Trail or in the nearby Park Woods Urban Forest. 

Come see for yourself all we have to offer. Contact us or schedule a tour today to learn more.

“For us, volunteering gives us the opportunity to meet people from all areas of the VMRC campus and has broadened our perspective and understanding of the community we now call ‘home’.”
