Explore our variety of on-site amenities

Our surrounding green space at Chartwell Jackson Creek provides a wonderful introduction to our amenities. Residents enjoy our creekside walking paths that connect to longer trails, as well as sitting in our garden, gathering in the gazebo, the gardens, or benches. Inside, our fireplace lounge with grand piano is always a popular spot, as well as the quiet library. You’ll find us drinking coffee in the bistro, or watching a cooking demo in the country kitchen. Film nights in our movie theatre—complete with comfy loungers—are also enjoyed by residents.
