Employees are not allowed to smoke anywhere on the premises. Residents may not smoke inside or in their apartments; however, a designated smoking area is available outside for resident use.

Is there an Entrance Fee?

No Entrance Fee is required for residency at The Lodge at Old Trail. Residents pay a monthly rental fee and sign an annual lease. Should circumstances change, a 30-day written notice will break the lease agreement.

What is the Priority Wait List Program?

If you love living at The Lodge but aren’t ready yet, we encourage you to plan ahead and join our Priority Wait List Program. A fully refundable $1,250 deposit enrolls you into the program. When we receive a deposit, we assign you the next available waitlist number. Wait List Depositors receive special opportunities to attend invitation-only functions, to be updated about new happenings or upcoming events at The Lodge, and to select an available residence when vacancies occur ahead of those who have not yet joined the waitlist. In addition, our depositors are entitled to an annual Dinner for Four at The Lodge on the evening of their choice.

We will, from time to time, contact waitlist depositors about available apartments. If a depositor is not ready to accept an offered apartment, they will not lose their priority position. We will simply skip that depositor number and move on to the next person(s) on the list. If you become a depositor and an apartment you’re interested in becomes available, you will be called, in numerical order, and extended the opportunity to move in at that time. When you are ready and have chosen an available apartment, you will work with the Marketing Director to plan your move. The $1,250 deposit is applied towards your first month’s rent when you become a resident.

What does the Old Trail Village have to offer?
