The Village Lifestyle

Membership within the Cordia Residential Club is exclusive to seniors, certainly, but one of the many beauties of our unique setting is that it does not stand alone. Perched within a stunning pastoral setting and connected to a host of shops, galleries, gardens, events, and more, this extraordinary community draws and accommodates people of all ages each day of the year. Bustling but never overcrowded, lively yet serene, The Village incorporates the best of big city living into one engaging package.


Because Cordia is designated to support intentional living and the pursuit of personal growth, it’s structured as a world in which you can thrive, where stimulating conversation, a lively card game, a class in Tai Chi or French Creole cooking, or perhaps a game of Wii bowling, can be part of your every day. What interest do you want to explore? At Cordia, the opportunities to pursue longtime passions—and ignite new ones—are endless.

Gourmet Dining


Certainly, the serene luxury of each Cordia Private Residence and the natural beauty surrounding The Village campus offer exquisite opportunities for solitude, but the cornerstone of what sets the Cordia experience apart is our ability to bring new and true connections to your life. More than 30,000 square feet of Cordia is devoted to shared spaces. From cozy nooks to grand gathering spots, each is built to welcome, connect, and engage you with other Club Members.

It Wouldn't Be Home Without Fido

Living the life you’ve always dreamed of shouldn’t require you to sacrifice your best four-legged friend. Pets under 30 pounds are not only welcomed at Cordia but embraced—and just a little bit pampered too, thanks to feline friendly private residences, a private dog-walk trail within the Cordia courtyard and acres of roam-worthy nature trails just beyond.

Pets welcome

Invite the Family

We welcome all of our Club Members to extend invitations to loved ones, with hopes that they’ll pay many a visit to share in your Cordia experience and feel as welcome—and at home—as you do.

Cordia is housed within The Village at Grand Traverse Commons, a sprawling enclave of century-old Victorian-Italianate buildings that is the heart of the largest historic preservation project in Michigan history. Just a stone’s throw from the quaint streets of downtown Traverse City, the 63-acre Village campus is home to weekly farmers’ markets, year-round festivals, wine tasting rooms, fine dining, casual eateries and coffee shops, a bakery, boutiques, and much more.
