Every floor of Lutherwood boasts spacious lounges, with some offering breathtaking views of Lake Scranton. Residents also enjoy a ground-level terrace and balconies on each floor that serve as the perfect place to read a book or chat with a friend. The terrace level also offers a large community room for residents. Incorporating a billiards table, library, and kitchen, it serves as a perfect location for social gatherings, dinners, and meetings. A large lounge also is available for residents for gatherings or relaxation.

Just off the lounge are individual U.S. Postal Service mailboxes for residents. For residents' convenience, each floor of Lutherwood also includes a laundry room equipped with coin-operated washers and dryers.

Outside, residents can enjoy a wooded setting that serves as the perfect environment for summer picnics or fall entertaining. The area boasts shuffleboard and horseshoe courts, charcoal grills, picnic tables, and terrace-level benches and tables.

Social amenities galore

Lutherwood offers a varied social network, with residents able to choose to participate in numerous events. A Residents Association organizes holiday activities, outdoor picnics, special dinners, and weekly activities. Lutherwood residents also remain active in the larger community, with many volunteering at various local non-profit organizations.

Lutherwood provides scheduled transportation to designated shopping areas such as grocery stores, nearby malls, and retail outlets. Hourly public transportation adds an extra convenience, with residents able to ride the Colts bus system, with a pick-up and drop-off point at Lutherwood’s front entrance.

A peace-of-mind environment

Lutherwood residents live independently in a safe, secure environment. All building entrances are locked, with residents using a front-door card-access system. The front entrance also is monitored during day hours, and visitors are regulated by residents via a phone-access system. Lutherwood has smoke alarms, an emergency-lighting system, central fire/heat detectors, a sprinkler system for fire, handrails in the hallways, and grab bars in the bathrooms. The grounds, including parking areas, are well-lighted and well-kept.
