At the Hermitage, you don’t have to worry about getting to where you need to go. We offer safe, reliable transportation to the places you need to be, like doctors’ appointments and shopping excursions, within a 20-mile radius. Come along for the ride, and let us do the driving.

Holiday Celebrations


From New Year’s Day, to New Year’s Eve, the Hermitage provides a year-round celebration of all the major holidays for our residents. Our community events open the doors to your family and friends with themed-food choices, games and fellowship for all, especially at Thanksgiving and around the holidays. 

Onsite Doctor Visits


We believe in onsite doctor visits at the Hermitage and at Hummingbird Cove Heath Center and, so do the medical professionals who visit us at our Eastern Shore community. Your health is important to us at the Hermitage and at Hummingbird Cove. We want to make sure getting checkups or meeting all your medical needs is convenient and easy for your health’s sake.


Don’t be surprised at the Hermitage if you see some pets wandering around, like Molly, our rescue dog who calls Hummingbird Cove home. We also allow residents who can care for their own pets to bring small animals with them, including cats, dogs, fish and birds.

Rotating Art Shows

One of the Eastern Shore’s community art leagues comes in every so often to showcase talented artists in our Art Lounge. Our residents can be inspired by these original works, and can visit them on their own schedule. Some are even up for sale if you want to buy a piece and take it home.

Peaceful Surroundings


The Hermitage is located on 98 of the Eastern Shore’s most beautiful acres. Our main community is beautifully landscaped and manicured, providing a tranquil environment where you can smell the roses and listen to the birds sing. The Hermitage also recently acquired a drone, which can fly around and take video of our gorgeous campus.
