Resident Amenities

The McLellan Tavern:  One main meal per day will be offered at the family style pub with a home dining room atmosphere and intimate spots to have dinner with each other, family and friends.  A local chef will cook up your family recipes or delight us with their own creations.  We just added a “Lunch on the Go” Soup and Sandwich Special!  Creative soups and sandwiches can be picked up in the kitchen OR we LOVE to deliver….its a chance to say Hi!

Fitness Center:  The fitness center will be open 24 hours a day with cardio fitness bikes and treadmills, weights and exercise equipment and coming soon, optional yoga, stretching and weight training programs. Maureen Sullivan, a personal fitness trainer with over 30 years of training and motivation has joined our team.  Meet with her in your own private fitness center and LIVE !  Your body is not held back by age, but by mind…you can do anything with support and friends.   That’s what The McLellan is all about.

Boutique Cinema:  Bring your friends and watch the latest movie.  Invite family for super bowl parties or grandkids for birthdays!  Well…right now this space is taking shape as our YOGA RETREAT!  Of course we can still pile in there an watch movies.  It is your space, work it the way you want 🙂

Library: Built in bookcases to share your best reads, local newspapers and a baby grand piano, all there for you to relax and enjoy.  This is one of my favorite places,  the 3rd floor is ready for an artistic flair of music and art…tell me your creative secrets

10 Bay Parking Garage:  With your own garage door opener and space to hold your prized wheels or just for extra storage!

Guest Suite:  Dependent on residence floor plans, a guest suite may be available to all residents on the third floor.  It will have  a full bath and be fully furnished for overnight guests and family that may be visiting from out of town or just want to be a bit closer for a few days. All resident guests have privileges to use The McLellan as their own and dine in the Tavern.

Porte Cochere:  So that you can avoid the rain and snow and be dropped off in style at the front door.

Elevator:  Large elevator servicing all three floors, so you can visit every floor and get to dinner on time!

Stairways:  Large stairways on each end of the building to encourage you to keep on moving!  When we keep moving we Live better!  There will lots of exercise tips and you might meet a neighbor

Brunswick Explorer Shuttle:  Right outside your door is a public transit service throughout Brunswick.  Buses run hourly, $1.00 per trip or $2.00 for an all-day pass.

Walking Distance:  One of our most unique amenities that separates us from every other Senior Living Community.  You can walk everywhere:  the Amtrak train to Boston, 5 churches, Hannaford’s Grocery Store, the Memorial Library, over 30 restaurants, art galleries, shops and whole food stores, Bowdoin College, the Androscoggin River and more.  Downtown is about 100 steps away from your front door.

Gardening: One of the unique extras of The McLellan will be our signature flower boxes.  They will be selectively placed under the outside windows of your home apartment and we will fill them together and change them out seasonally, with bright summer flower, fall pumpkins and mums and holiday greens and lights.  We will need your help if you have a green thumb and want to be on “The Flower It Up Team”!
