We moved from the RSL facility in Bluffton, SC (Okatie Pines) to the Asheville Area to be nearer family. What made this move easier was knowing the RSL was planning to build Julian Woods here. We put our names on the list as soon as we could! Our experience with this company, now at two of their sites, has been only extremely positive. They ...

We moved from the RSL facility in Bluffton, SC (Okatie Pines) to the Asheville Area to be nearer family. What made this move easier was knowing the RSL was planning to build Julian Woods here. We put our names on the list as soon as we could! Our experience with this company, now at two of their sites, has been only extremely positive. They have developed a corporate plan, that is carried out throughout the organization, which can only be described as a most enjoyable, relaxing, entertaining and delightful way to spend the days in the "Senior chapter of life". The best recommendation we can give is that we were the once, and could not wait to get back to the RSL lifestyle.

From the first encounter with Julian Woods, we were impressed by the liveliness of the people who greeted us. Martha knew who we were immediately because our son made contact with her and warned that we would be attending the "Lunch and Learn" session. Her greeting was warm and welcoming. Honestly "too good to be true" was our initial response. As we continued our search for a residence where we would spend the next chapter of lives, we begin to realize how unique Julian Woods was, and we continue to attend the meet and greet sessions. Each time we found the RLC staff to be welcoming. They knew our names on site and something about us. When we eventually signed up, we found everyone to be enthusiastic, concerned, and willing to answer our questions about the life at Julian Woods. They helped us along the way to a life that is "too good to be true". Moving day arrived, and we found the staff going out of their way to be helpful, to be open and welcoming. Amazingly everyone, everyone was sincere. Over and over people said how much they loved their jobs and felt that they were part of a "family", and love coming to work and talking with people. Their words were sincere, not put on, but truly meant. From Glenna and Greg the managers to David the Maintenance Tech to Kaye who works in the dining room, everyone has been positive and truly welcoming. All along this journey, everyone has been helpful with not one glitch along the way. Glad to be here! J & J Bauer

It's the staff! The building is beautiful, the amenities are first-rate, but it is the staff's commitment to building community that makes Julian Woods an excellent choice for retirement living. Every staff member we have met has been positive and caring. This is a well-managed, quality organization by every standard I can think of. Areas of concern are addressed immediately. I thought it might be that we met the A-team at the beginning and things would change as we went along. Instead, Martha, Sean, Glenna and Greg are still fantastic but so are the new folks like Blake and Albany. Congratulations and thanks for providing this great retirement facility to the western NC area!

Never have I ever worked anywhere that is so polished and genuinely welcoming. The people, the service.. you can tell it really comes from the heart and makes the community feel like home.

What a beautiful place! You walk in to see a lovely fountain with koi fish, the artwork and decor throughout the building blends of color and unique design that is aesthetically appealing. The people who live and work there are all warm and welcoming, and the food is incredible! It is served from a scratch kitchen. You must try the crème brûlée!

What "All-Inclusive" Means


It means everything for one monthly rent with no buy-in fee or long-term lease. It means spending time doing the things you love, instead of doing chores like cooking, cleaning, or maintaining a home.
