Who We Are

A beautiful campus near some of the country’s most prestigious institutions, Holiday Cedar Woods in Branford, CT, offers an ideal senior living community for retirement.

Your senior apartment at Holiday Cedar Woods situates you less than two miles from the stores at Branhaven Plaza and several restaurants — including Donvan’s Reef and Le Petit Cafe, two local favorites. Follow the invigorating scent of cedar and freshly cut grass to small, historic neighborhoods throughout the city, each with its own unique personality, small shops and dining.

When you feel inclined to step farther afield, New Haven lies less than 10 miles away, and with it the renowned Yale-New Haven Health System as well as art and cultural events through the university. Attend events at Shubert Theater and the University or exhibits at the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History.
