Making new friends—and reconnecting with old friends
If you’ve lived in or around Renfrew your whole life, don’t be surprised to find once you move in that the people you’ve grown up with are your new neighbours! One of the best aspects of life in our retirement home is our residents themselves—a down to earth crowd who love to socialize over a hot cup of coffee, picnic in our lovely outdoor space and play a competitive game of cards. With so many different activities on offer, it’s easy to make new friends and enjoy great conversation and laughter each day.

“Dinner with friends.” That’s how residents at Chartwell Quail Creek feel about the dining experience here. Our daily meal service is an important inclusion in the independent lifestyle you’ll enjoy here, where you’re free to focus on the pursuits that inspire and fulfill you. Our dining room is comfortable, traditional, and inviting, just like the residence itself. Our menu is diversified, featuring freshly prepared, home-style fare reflecting residents’ favourites, as well as enticing new options. À la carte options give you even more choice.
Activities and amenities
Our retirement residence is a lively and active community of seniors enjoying a social and supportive lifestyle. We are down to earth, welcoming, and enjoy getting together through the activities we love to pursue. That could be a lively and competitive Euchre tournament, a workout with knitting needles in the knitting club, or with exercise bands in one of our regular stretching classes. We appreciate the fact that worship services are available to us in the residence, including hymn sings. We love relaxing at happy hour or having a laugh watching Lucy in our classic TV get-togethers. Being out and about is also important to us, with shopping trips, barbecues in the park, and more.

Renfrew may be a small town, but the list of things to do is long and varied. The historic downtown, with its beautiful, old post office is also home to interesting boutiques and local independent restaurants, including the popular Bonnechere Bakery & Bistro, featuring homemade treats and sandwiches. The town is also large enough to support many major restaurant chains, dotted throughout the region, giving residents lots of dining choices.
You’ll find even more food, drink, and entertainment fun in the town’s bustling event schedule, including an annual Bluegrass Festival, a craft beer and food truck festival, and Taste of the Valley.

It’s right next to McDougall Mill Museum and the swinging bridge, one of only three in Canada. The guided tours at the Bonnechere Caves in nearby Eganville also make for a fascinating visit.
