Life in "Nature’s Neighborhood."

Founded in 1966 with roots in the Lutheran Faith dating back to its inception, The Hearthstone honors the faith’s core values of safeguarding, nurturing and caring for all people. Today, The Hearthstone enjoys a reputation as Washington State’s leading continuing care retirement community welcoming people age sixty-two or greater of all faiths, genders and orientations.

Set in Seattle’s beloved and historic Green Lake neighborhood, life at The Hearthstone offers a deep connection to nature. Surrounded by the area’s most famous 2.8 mile loop, stunning vistas, nearby retail, the renown Woodland Park Zoo and best-in-class medical care, our community offers so much to current and potential residents.

The Hearthstone’s campus consists of three buildings: The Flagship Lakeside building on the shores Green Lake, Cove West and Cove East. Residents in any of our buildings are afforded a full complement of community amenities and CCRC health services, including skilled nursing, assisted living and memory care. Beyond those invaluable services, The Hearthstone provides a true sense of comfort and belonging to all who call the community their home.

Greater choices and more living options

The Hearthstone offers a variety of residential options to suit individual needs. Whether you want a more private ambiance offered by Cove East or West, or a communal experience afforded in The Lakeside building, the choice is yours.

We also provide access to higher care and vital health services such as assisted living, skilled nursing, physical therapy, rehab and memory support.

A proud past, a bright future

More than half a century ago, the Lutheran Council of Seattle-King County, a Washington State nonprofit organization, designed and built a retirement community on the shores of Green Lake, which today is The Hearthstone. As the area’s leading and most well-respected CCRC, we embody the values of caring for, nurturing and safeguarding all people.

We look forward to sharing The Hearthstone with you. Please contact us to learn about all that is offered by life in nature’s neighborhood.

  • As a long-time Green Lake resident, when I began to explore retirement living communities, The Hearthstone quickly became the perfect choice. I have met so many wonderful and interesting people here. I enjoy having a bistro in my building and access to so many excellent fitness classes, movies, educational classes and other activities offered. I made the best decision for me, and it is a gift to my children as well. They are grateful that I reside is such a safe, caring and supporting community and so am I.

  • Our decision to move to Cove West at the Hearthstone took several years. We were specifically looking for a non-profit CCRC in order to meet any future healthcare needs. The Hearthstone’s well-established reputation stood out as did the Green Lake location, which in our opinion is unmatched in the Seattle area.  All of the community's amenities and the newly-built (at the time) Cove West sealed the deal. Last but not least, we have found true community with our neighbors.

    ~Dave and Judy, Cove West
  • We lived separately and happily at the Hearthstone for several years, and we still consider our individual moves here to be very good decisions. We met at dinner one evening and thoroughly enjoyed each other’s company. As a result, the second, totally unexpected decision we made to move in together was another very good decision. Together, we have found something we thought was lost forever. Not everyone finds love at eighty-one. We wouldn’t have either had one of us not moved to The Hearthstone.

  • I love living at The Hearthstone and in the wonderful Green Lake neighborhood. My fellow residents and I make up a close-knit community in which there are countless opportunities to improve our physical, mental and spiritual well-being. And the food is good too!

    ~Don, The Lakeside
  • We love calling the Hearthstone our home, as does our dog Dosey, who is SO happy living just one block from Green Lake park. Exercise classes and the well-equipped gym keep us physically active. Music trivia and local excursions are fun. The staff supports our daily living with maintenance, cleaning, rides, trips, humor and kindness. We feel lucky to live here.

    ~Ann and Mary, The Lakeside
  • It is all about community at The Hearthstone and not just the Green Lake neighborhood community.  While we love living in such a vibrant neighborhood, it is the true sense of community with other residents and staff members that makes The Hearthstone so special.

    ~Frank and Jean, The Lakeside
