Plan a visit to Kendal

Experience Kendal at Oberlin

Knowing that the most vulnerable population to COVID-19 is older adults, we are limiting guest tours and overnight stays at Kendal at Oberlin at this time. We value your interest in our community and invite you to reach out to Elisabeth Christman at 440-775-9062 to get your questions answered and a future tour or stay scheduled. Thank you for your understanding during this time.

We invite you to experience first hand what it’s like to live in our vibrant retirement living community. Our TRY IT, YOU’LL LIKE IT program offers you an opportunity to sample living at Kendal for one or two nights. Participants tell us they want to experience all Kendal has to offer. We’d like to help you do that, and in doing so, help you make an assessment of the Kendal lifestyle.

You will stay in a model cottage or apartment.

We’ll make these arrangements for your visit:

  • tours of cottages and/or apartments
  • visits and meals with residents to discuss life at Kendal
  • an opportunity to discuss our continuing care contract options
  • an informal opportunity to meet key staff
  • an invitation to Kendal activities and programs
  • time to explore the Oberlin area and all that it offers.


Consider including an event at Oberlin College during your stay. Check out the Oberlin College events calendar for a complete list of concerts and lectures that are open to visitors.

We believe that choosing a retirement living community is an important decision, and one that deserves thorough exploration. Our Try It program has a modest fee of $40 per day for an individual, or $55 per day for two people. This includes the cost of meals you enjoy in our dining rooms during your stay. If you would like to TRY IT, please contact the admissions office at 1-800-548-9469.
