The ideal retirement community for enjoying an active social life and plenty of southern hospitality. 

The Hidenwood is a retirement Community nestled in the woods of Newport News, Virginia. Our community gives our residents a true feeling of Southern hospitality - where everything is "Darlin" and "someone's heart is always being blessed." Newport News is a town where friendships last a lifetime, neighbors help each other, and families have roots. Chances are, if you've lived around here or in the area you already know someone who lives at The Hidenwood. 

Apartment living at The Hidenwood is truly uncomplicated from the start. We do not require long-term contracts or exorbitant entry or endowment fees. Instead, residents pay a refundable security deposit and monthly rent which includes weekly housekeeping and linen service, maintenance services and three chef prepared meals daily. 



I just wanted to write you and say a real “thank you” for making it possible to see my parents at this time in their lives, wake up smiling, and ready to face a new day. They have been in residence there since summer of 2012, and after some health issues, Mom was able to finally settle in October, 2012. Since day one, having their own furniture, and familiar pictures, etc. they immediately felt themselves at home.
The entire staff has been nothing but gracious to them and to us. If there was a concern of any kind, it was addressed quickly. Living out of town, my sister and I have called into the reception desk (day or night) and received immediate response, from phone being off the hook to tv “not working,” to personal comfort issues. All these moments have been handled in the utmost professional manner.
The atmosphere of the Hidenwood is comfortable, aesthetically pleasing and user-friendly for the residents, whether needing assistance (our Mom) or independent (our Dad). Again, all handled with dignity.
We are quite pleased with the care of the coverage. The needs of both our parents have been met and when asked, they respond “thank you for finding us the perfect place to live.” They appear healthy, happy and content. Friends, after seeing them remark at how happy they seem and are quite pleased with the atmosphere of their home, to say nothing if they happen to partake of dining at the Hidenwood!!
As you can see, the family of Katherine and James Johnson are quite satisfied with the care our parents are receiving. It means everything to be able to leave and return with assurances of well-being for them.
We would highly recommend your facility to anyone needing a “new setting” for their loved ones where independence and dignity are desired
