Independent living cottages at mulberry

Are you ready to enjoy retirement? You’ve got to see The Cottages of Mulberry!


A short, 15-minute drive outside of Lafayette, The Cottages of Mulberry offer adults ages 55 and up a maintenance-free, independent living option in a scenic, rural setting. Our thriving community is made up of 38 condominiums, and each has an attached garage with 1,100+ square feet of living space.

We offer maintenance packages, and there are three different finance options available to those who want to join our community including a traditional purchase, life lease, and an annual lease. We are here to work with you to make your retirement living as easy and flexible as possible. 

We’re here to help you each step of the way.

Wahneta Schley is our Director of Cottage Services, and she is also a licensed real estate agent. Wahneta is ready to meet you, understand your lifestyle goals during retirement, and help you through each step of the process.

Our neighbors take comfort in knowing they are part of a tight-knit community. From joining a card club or gathering with the lunch bunch, to moving with the Fit for Life program each week or attending special outings to regional attractions, the Cottages of Mulberry offer social activities of interest to just about anyone.

You can take a virtual tour of The Cottages of Mulberry from the comfort of your home or call us at 765-296-2911 to arrange your personal tour.

Community Engagement


Twice a week, a group of workout warriors gather at Mulberry Health for a free training session led by a Miracles Fitness trainer. These sessions are specifically designed for those 55 and older and are open to the public. Join us at 8:30AM on Tuesdays and Thursdays.


Parallel with the academic calendar, Mulberry University is a monthly series of enriching, entertaining and educational sessions designed to stimulate the minds of our local community members age 55 and up. We’ve had visits from the Columbian Park Zoo, local artists, chefs and experts in a variety of interests. Call or email us today to find out what’s coming up next!


Mulberry Health offers an array of monthly activities specifically for Cottage residents. Events range from outings to Beef & Boards and Conner Prairie, to seasonal events like our annual summer picnic and the Purdue University Christmas show. It wouldn’t be a community without a healthy social calendar. Join up with the “lunch bunch” for a bite to eat, or get involved in a regular card game.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know Independent Living is right for me?

The reason is different for everyone. You could be preparing for the future by “rightsizing” your current living situation, or maybe the responsibilities of traditional home ownership are just too much these days. Either way, one fact holds true — joining a community like this is something you should enjoy while you still can. Call us today to schedule a tour!

What if I have a home to sell?
We can help with that! Our Director of Cottage Services is also a licensed real estate agent, and she specializes in senior moves.
But what about all our stuff?

We can make a referral to a certified senior move management specialist to help with the “rightsizing” process.

Are leasing options available?
Yes. Please inquire for more info.
What happens when it’s time to move out?

When it’s time to move on — no matter what the reason — we’ll walk alongside you or your loved one throughout the duration of the process. If long-term care is required, we’ll coordinate with your doctor and our nursing and therapy teams to ensure an easy transition. Whatever happens, trust that you’re not alone. We’re here to help.
