A Personal chef. A Driver. A Concierge. At Balfour, seniority has its privileges.

As you can tell from the photos, Balfour’s independent communities are places you can proudly call home. And what a home it is.

From the outside, it’s easy to see how our stunning western architecture was inspired by America’s National Parks, right down to the park-like setting. Everywhere you look, there’s lush landscaping, fish ponds, flower beds and trees.

But it’s inside that makes independent living at Balfour truly exceptional. The apartments and cottages are roomy and well-lit, with designer finishes like walk-in closets, luxuriously apppointed bathrooms and kitchens with granite countertops and the latest appliances (so you can cook your own meals, although you may have little desire to do so!)

There are three full service restaurants to choose from, with a culinary program directed by our own Executive Chef. For a light meal almost any time, there’s the Aspen Grill. For a more complete array of lunches and dinners, wait until you see what’s on the menus at La Pomme Restaurant in the Residences and The Telluride Restaurant at the Lodge. And every Sunday, there’s a brunch that’s simply world-class.

In the warmer months, outdoor dining is available at both the Lodge and the Residences.

Our incredible fitness facilities, with an indoor lap pool, a European water therapy pool, exercise programs, and a yoga studio will help you work off all those great meals and stay in shape.

It all makes Balfour seem more like a home or even a resort than a retirement facility. Here you’ll enjoy a level of service few people ever get to experience. Want tickets to the theater? A ride to a gallery opening? Or just a picnic basket filled with goodies? Whatever you need, our concierge staff is on duty around the clock to make sure it happens.

After a few visits to our restaurants, a happy hour or two spent by the fireplaces in one of our great rooms and some Life Enrichment Programs, you’re likely to find that you’ve started to form the beginnings of some new friendships.

Seniority has its privileges.
