ottawa Living

Pleasant View's neighborhood location in the friendly town of Ottawa gives residents opportunities to stay connected to their hometown. People who live here enjoy intergenerational activities, social gatherings, parties, the presence of children and animals, and a deep sense of community. It’s the very best of small-town living. Relationships are top priority. Some of our staff members have known residents for most of their lives, or they bring their own parents or family members to live at Pleasant View. As a result, moving here often feels like joining longtime friends and neighbors in a place designed especially for carefree retirement living.
