On a hill overlooking the city of Ashland and Mt. Ashland sits a special 55+ community known as
Mountain Meadows. Situated on 27 beautiful, treed acres, this community has approximately
290 residents occupying 65 single family homes and 161 condominiums. The residents take a
great deal of pride in owning and operating the community. There are so many opportunities
for residents to get involved – committees, music events, exercise and wellness classes, serving
as a member of a board of directors or helping -out in the community garden.
There is a slogan in Mountain Meadows – “We Own It, We Run It, We Love It”. “Ownership” is
one of the key components of Mountain Meadows. You can own a piece of real property and
be a part of a vital 55+ group of people. “Running or Governing” is important to so many of the
residents and they take it very seriously. “Loving” the community is the truly amazing part. The
residents (both owners and renters) want to see that things are sustained into the future. So
much so that they came up with a plan to expand the clubhouse so that more events could be
held and accommodate more people as the community grows. Not wanting to create a special
assessment, the residents developed a capital campaign to raise money from a variety of
events. A design was born with help of resident input and some fabulous local
vendors/architects and contractors. One year ago in January, we celebrated this beautiful
expansion as we celebrated New Year 2019.
The Mount Ashland room was beautifully expanded to allow room for more events and
meetings where more residents could attend. Large windows to take in the amazing views of
Ashland and to add much needed light to this incredible room. The Meadowlark Dining Room
was a masterpiece when completed. It always had amazing views but now has more room and
is much easier for the dining staff to take care of the residents. The expansion turned out so
incredible and the outside the building looks even better than it did before.
If you have not been to Mountain Meadows in awhile or perhaps never visited this one of a
kind community, you owe it to yourself to call us or come by for a tour. Come by and meet us
and see why the residents truly …Love It.
Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone from the Mountain Meadows 55+ Community and
Mountain Meadows Realty.
