Laid-Back Luxury Retirement Living

At Legacy, we are taking laid-back luxury living to heart, balancing hand-crafted cuisine and cocktails on the terrace with casual firepits amid our native mountain landscape.  Legacy is where you can indulge in a day at the spa, with customized sessions to promote health and healing and hike miles on our integrated trail system soaking up the breathtaking views.  Stay engaged with access to so many activities right outside your door, or order dinner in and delight in the quiet moments alone.

How ever  you spend your days, we aim to create opportunities where members can live purposefully while forming meaningful relationships with each other. Your only requirement is to show up as you are.
