The location of Summit Woods can be described in one word: stunning. Nestled deep in a grove of mature trees, Summit Woods has the exclusive and luxurious atmosphere of an old-world country estate. Despite the seeming remoteness of its location, Summit Woods is less than ten minutes away from Waukesha's charming downtown and less than thirty minutes away from Milwaukee.

Whether you or a loved one are looking for the comfort and privacy of home, or a vibrant community with plenty of opportunities for fun, Summit Woods has it all. Contact us or schedule a tour to learn more about Waukesha's favorite senior living community.

After over ten years of living here I am still happy. It's hard to choose my one favorite thing about Summit Woods because there are so many good things!
-Nancy E., resident at Summit Woods
