The Cottage Priority Program

We are building 18 spacious new cottages, steps from our main campus, adjacent to a 640-acre nature conservancy.  Demand for these cottages is high, so we have created a Cottage Priority Program.

Cottage Priority Program members have the best chance to secure a home at the lowest price, with the highest level of benefits and selection.  They will be able to personalize their home and choose their ideal location.

To join the Cottage Priority Program, click the link to sign up. A fully refundable deposit of $1,000 secures your place in this limited program. If you decide at any time, for any reason, that you are not interested in a cottage, we will refund you the full amount of $1,000.
