Welcome to Thornton Oaks Retirement Community
We are located in Brunswick, Maine, a town cited twice by Money magazine as one of the top communities in the U.S. in which to retire. Brunswick is the gateway to Maine’s Mid Coast region and sits on the northern rim of Casco Bay.
Our community is distinguished by residents who enjoy a wide range of interests and are united in their pursuit of lifelong learning. We are fortunate to choose from a myriad of cultural events and activities—here at Thornton Oaks, on the nearby Bowdoin College campus and in neighboring Portland.
Maine attracts those with an affinity for nature, an inviting slice of which you’ll find right here in our own wooded setting. We invite you to spend some time on our website and familiarize yourself with everything we have to offer.
Life at Thornton Oaks is as varied and diverse as our residents, who are instrumental in planning and shaping community events. The calendar is filled with daily activities, from book groups and bridge parties to foreign affairs lectures and flower arranging. The Thornton Oaks shuttle bus makes frequent trips to the Bowdoin College pool and local shopping centers, as well as cultural excursions to Portland and Boston.
Ours is a friendly and welcoming community. Residents find it easy to connect with others who share similar interests and many tell us that they have never been as social as they find themselves now, in retirement.
