The Highlands

Imagine living in a community as tranquil and friendly as it is beautifully designed and maintained. Envision your dream home, offering every modern convenience. Now picture all that; in a setting that puts you close to the lakes, mountains and beaches of coastal Maine.

Located only one mile from Bowdoin College in Historic Topsham, The Highlands is nestled within 75 acres of woods, nature and landscaped gardens. From the hiking trails to the fitness center, to the indoor heated pool, and the cultural opportunities…you have found a unique place that you’ll love to call home.

There are cooperatively owned cottages and apartments, where you continue to build equity. Or if a rental apartment is more suited to your style, The Maine Lodge offers spacious one and two bedroom floor plans, designed for convenience and independence. The Holden Frost House and the newly renovated Benjamin Porter House grace the entrance to The Highlands, and offer you a new tradition: Historic Retirement…Where the New Meets the Old.

The latest addition is a brand new neighborhood known as Town Hall Village. Located on 10 acres, Town Hall Village will integrate several beautifully restored historic homes with a neighborhood of architect-designed cottage homes and apartments. Each home will include wonderful architectural details absent on many modern homes.

Your future is secure if you should later need some assistance in daily living. Cadigan Lodge and the Governor King Community offer priority access to The Highlands residents. It’s peace of mind and a lifestyle of choice; an intelligent decision for today’s independent planners. Please call for a personal visit 1-888-760-1042 and browse our website at
