Independent Living Reviews for Sommerset Retirement Community

August 01, 2020


I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My friend is a resident of Sommerset Retirement Community. It is OK right now. They're pretty nice people over there. They seem to try to help as much as possible. Right now, they're all still in their rooms and their food is being delivered up there, so that's pretty good. My friend just came back from a rehab, and without going out and doing a lot of activities, she is very slow in her recovery. Everyone I met has been very nice. Her room is like a studio apartment. It is very nice. She is very happy there. She is not doing a lot of activities because she is still trying to recover from a hip fracture. With COVID they're limited to their apartments. They have an exercise room, a library, and a pool table. They had music and dancing in the atrium. They have washers and dryers. They have security and they maintain everything, so it sounds like it is pretty good.

I visited Sommerset Retirement Community but I didn't like where it was located. It was really very nice, but I didn't like where it was. The staff that accommodated me was very nice as well, she's excellent. The location was hard to get to. I didn't have any food there but the dining area looked really nice. The community was clean and spacious. If it's somewhere else I wouldn't mind moving there. Some of their amenities are a pool, an activity place, a beauty shop, library and a place to sit.

Provider Response

Thank you for visiting our wonderful community. We appreciate the feedback as it lets us know how we are doing. I'm sorry the location was hard to get to. However, we do have a lot of shopping centers near us which residents really enjoy. Thank you again for the review. :)

Nothing really stood out in Sommerset. They had a small exercise room with classes and maybe a library and game room. The place was clean. The staff was pleasant and seemed helpful.

We went to Sommerset Retirement Community when we looked for a place for my grandmother. The staff was really nice. They had a cafeteria and they served two meals; you paid for the third meal. They did your laundry for an extra fee. They also had pretty good activities which was really nice.

About Sommerset Retirement Community

THERE’S A REAL DIFFERENCE at Sommerset, the liveliest, friendliest retirement community in Virginia’s Sterling and Leesburg area. It’s a rental retirement community with no long-term commitment, no entrance fee and no buy-in expense.

Plus, unlike retirement communities that include assisted living, Sommerset is all about savoring new freedom to live. Enjoy gracious dining, housekeeping, a Wellness Center, an excellent staff and a scope of activities plus free transportation to your own doctors and to Sterling and Leesburg shopping that is simply unmatched by any other retirement community in Loudoun County.

Located on a tree-lined drive in Sterling, VA, Sommerset is the rental retirement community for active seniors who want to put down roots and spread their wings.

Exceptional value. There is no entrance fee or buy-in. Instead, renting month-to-month at Sommerset rewards you with flexibility and with beautifully run facilities, a rich scope of activities, and outstanding medical services, shopping and entertainment in Sterling and Leesburg. Our experienced, long-tenured staff clears away chores and concerns so you can enjoy an independent lifestyle with a new family of “kindred spirits.”

So much to discover. Unlike senior living communities that include assisted living, Sommerset is more like a college campus. There are so many activities! Plus, every weekday, our free chauffeured bus takes residents “off campus” — to see their own doctors or enjoy adventures everywhere from downtown Washington to West Virginia.

A real home. Unlike retirement communities run as a “chain,” Sommerset is run as your home. You’ll have a strong voice in how things operate and you’ll enjoy the feel of an old-fashioned, close-knit neighborhood where people know each other, enjoy each other, socialize together and are there for each other.
