Common spaces. Uncommonly inviting.

More than 86,000 square feet of The Chamberlin is common space, extending the living space of residents with plush seating, natural light and stunning waterfront views at every turn. It begins in the Grand Lobby, where tall ceilings, high-arching windows and Bay views welcome residents and their guests in dramatic fashion. It’s a place to gather with friends and guests for games and conversation, or to enjoy the sounds of our grand piano in the Grand Lobby’s piano bar. Cozy conversation nooks, comfortable lounge areas, an in-house library and a breezy open-air veranda complete the experience. The Chamberlin also features a 9th-floor Solarium with a rooftop overlook, boasting panoramic views of the Chesapeake Bay and Hampton Roads.

Wellness. Happiness, too.

Health and happiness get a front row seat on the Chesapeake Bay at The Chamberlin’s indoor pool complex and Hygeia Health Club. It’s the perfect place for residents to relax, unwind and stay in shape. State-of-the-art cardio and strength training equipment are just the beginning. Hygeia also has its own in-house wellness director to help you make and reach your fitness goals. Meanwhile, our 25-yard, 6-lane heated indoor pool is ideal for lap swims, fun aquatic classes or just a relaxing wade in the water. Add inspiring wellness lectures and exercise classes, bayside walking trails, a nearby beach and locker rooms with showers and towel service, and you quickly realize why we call this a luxury retirement resort.

Outdoor recreation

A breath of fresh air in retirement living.

Just when you think The Chamberlin couldn’t possibly get better, you discover a world of outdoor recreation right outside your door. Whether you’re looking for a full workout or a leisurely stroll along the water, The Chamberlin’s bayside walking, jogging and biking trails won’t disappoint. A neighboring Marina is just a short walk away, where anyone can enjoy boat-docking privileges. More of a landlubber? Cast a line off of the nearby fishing pier, or sink your toes in a white sandy beach, complete with its own lifeguard. There’s even a climate-controlled storage area for your fishing rods, bikes, beach chairs and more. Not even a 5 minute drive away is the beautiful Woodlands Golf Course. Did we say drive? It’s more like a pitch shot. Retirement resort, indeed.

The Poe Library

As the story goes, during a visit here in 1849, famed poet Edgar Allen Poe stepped outside the Hygeia Hotel to recite “The Raven” and “Annabel Lee” for his fellow guests. We built the aptly named “Poe Library” to suit your literary passions in a way we think Poe would appreciate.

Officer’s Club

If you’re looking for residents around Happy Hour, chances are you’ll find them inside the stately Officer’s Club. Here, “Everybody’s an Officer,” as we like to say. The club offers a giant flat screen television and a friendly bar that beckons residents just about every day. You can even enjoy four-star culinary creations right here while you watch the big game. That’s what you call a win-win.
