Masonic Village Cottages – Independent Living in Richmond VA

A vital element of our retirement community is the Masonic Village. Here, forty-five attractive cottages await any eligible Mason, his wife or widow. In exchange for an entrance fee and a monthly maintenance fee, Villagers receive care for their cottage, both inside and out, join friends at a daily meal in the Home’s dining room and participate in other community activities.


Designed for independent living, there are some significant health care benefits available for cottage residents. Perhaps most importantly, thirty days of assisted living or skilled nursing in MAHOVA following surgeries or temporary health issues are provided free of charge on an annual basis.

Additionally, permanent transfers from the Masonic Village to a higher level of care in MAHOVA are streamlined and can be done regardless of the health or financial situation of the resident.

Each cottage is designed to meet the needs of active community members. Fully equipped kitchens, two bedrooms, sunrooms where available and a well-manicured yard await each Villager. Because of this independent lifestyle, Village applicants who otherwise meet the Masonic membership criteria can be as young as sixty years of age.

  • One meal daily in the general Dining Room

  • Interior and exterior maintenance
