Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a resident at an Otterbein SeniorLife community? Well, now you can! Otterbein Granville, located near Columbus, Ohio, offers a “Try It Stay” program for those interested in experiencing life at Otterbein.

What is a Try It Stay?

Try It Stay guests will enjoy a complimentary stay in one of our fully furnished luxury residences. You may choose to stay for the day or a few nights — it’s entirely up to you!

What to Expect During Your Stay

You’ll receive an activity calendar of events and a personalized itinerary tailored to your interests and preferences before arrival.

Some of the different activities Try It Stay guests might enjoy include:

  • Customized community tour
  • Delicious meals in our dining venues
  • Nature tour of the 94-acre grounds, by foot or golf cart
  • Resident-led tour of the Granville area
  • Meet-and-greet with Otterbein Granville residents and staff
  • Swim in the indoor pool or exercise in the fitness room

At the end of your day, you’ll be able to unwind in a beautifully furnished apartment or cottage, fully stocked with snacks and beverages.

What Former Try It Stay Guests Have to Say

Former Try It Stay guests Steve B. and wife Eileen H. provided us with feedback after their complimentary stay at Otterbein Granville.

After having spent most of his career in higher education, Steve compared the program to a college visit. Here’s what Steve had to say:

“In my experience over the years, you could tell what your college experience would be like based on the visit to the campus. If your visit was well organized and they seemed to care about what your experience was like — or if they just left you to your own devices and were not attentive — odds are, your college experience would be the same. I knew from our well-organized itinerary and the attention to detail from the moment we arrived, our experience at Otterbein Granville would be great.” – Steve B., Recent Try It Stay guest

How to Schedule Your Free Stay

Otterbein Granville residents and staff look forward to welcoming visitors to the community. Moving from a long-time residence is a difficult decision, and Try It Stays help provide a better understanding of what life can be like as a resident.
