“grams lives here”

Feels Like Home

When One Size Doesn’t Fit All

First Impression: A Warm Welcome

Owned and operated by The Horst Group in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Columbia Cottage is a “must visit.” This intentionally and uniquely constructed single level Assisted Living community provides its residents with a small, home-like, intimate feel and excels in providing resident-appropriate levels of care.

As a resident and his/her family and friends walk through the front door of Columbia Cottage, we want them to experience the reality of walking into a welcoming and nurturing environment that truly is the resident’s home.

Built around two beautifully landscaped and enclosed courtyards that allow for frequent outdoor recreational activities and social gatherings, the Cottage enjoys lots of natural light and emphasizes warm colors throughout the residence. Cottage staff encourage and assist residents who enjoy gardening the opportunity to continue to enjoy their hobby in the courtyards.

Columbia Cottage offers three home cooked meals daily and there is also a Country Kitchen in the heart of the Cottage where snacks are complimentary to the residents, their families and friends.  A number of our residents enjoy time in the Country Kitchen where they can relax and socialize with other residents and guests.

At Columbia Cottage, residents and their families can trust and have confidence that we care about the big things and the little things that create an authentic home environment.

Knowing that one size, one price and one location doesn’t fit all, Columbia Cottage has several different apartment sizes and a range of prices. The Cottage offers different private living floor plans to match individual preference. Residents are encouraged to bring their own home furnishings and can control their own environment as each apartment is equipped with its own heating and air-conditioning unit.
