Welcome to The Residences at Snow Place

The Residences at Snow Place is an independent living community for seniors who wish to remain in Boston and who seek freedom from the hassles of home maintenance, lawn care and snow removal—at a price they can afford. Residents enjoy an informal lifestyle, while keeping close to family and friends.

Our beautiful, state-of-the-art facility, conveniently located just south of Faulkner Hospital and across from the Arnold Arboretum provides easy access to all the amenities and attractions of Boston AND the quiet beauty of nature, nestled between conservation land and the scenic Arnold Arboretum.

Entry Fee ~ Membership Fee Schedule

Sixty-six spacious apartments are available through the purchase of a membership in our community. This entry fee is 93% refundable. Residents then pay an affordable monthly fee which covers heat, hot water and all interior and exterior maintenance. Supportive services such as meals, housekeeping, laundry and transportation are available on an à la carte basis.


Each apartment offers 800 square feet of comfortable living space including one bedroom, a spacious living room, fully applianced kitchen, full bath and a convenient study that can be used as a formal dining room or occasional guest room. Each air-conditioned apartment in the four-story elevator-serviced building has its own washer/dryer. Large double-hung windows fill the rooms with light and are easily opened to let in summer breezes.

Common Areas

Community rooms on the ground floor invite friendly gatherings and social events, and provide venues for our extensive activities program. Visit our library for a good book, email a friend at our computer station, work out on our exercise equipment or participate in one of our many classes.

We share our campus with Sophia Snow House, offering 24 hour Supportive Living. Both of these communities, known together as Sophia Snow Place, are sponsored by the Roxbury Home for Aged Women, a non-profit provider of affordable residential care in Boston for over 150 years.
