Landis Homes: Cultivating Life, Together

Jim and Beth Leaman have traded working at Landis Homes for living there. The large kitchen allows Beth to continue cooking, baking and canning.

Meet the Leamans 

Beth and Jim Leaman moved into a recently renovated cottage in May 2022; however, they were not new to Landis Homes. Beth had worked for a decade in nursing and Jim for nine years as chaplain. 

Beth enjoys cooking and baking and incorporates the fresh ingredients she grows in her on-campus community garden plot into her dishes. She also loves to can fruits and vegetables, with sweet dill pickles being her specialty.  She and Jim continue to host the family’s holiday meals and other special occasions.  

The Importance of Kitchen Design at Landis Homes 

Landis Homes is answering the growing desire to make aging in place convenient and comfortable by providing kitchens that offer easy accessibility with open layouts that allow for simultaneous use by multiple people. Furthermore, older cabinetry is also being replaced and, in some apartments and cottages, kitchens are undergoing complete redesigns to offer amenities such as islands and peninsulas that add functionality and aesthetic appeal. During such renovations, residents can now choose from standard options such as quartz. 

Dining Options on Campus 

The Owl Hill Bistro is open to residents, guests and the community! Soups, salads, sandwiches, entrées (savory roasted meats, rotisserie chicken and fish) and desserts are perfect for lunch or dinner. Pizzas are prepared from scratch and baked in our Woodstone oven (gluten-free options are available). 

The newly renovated Gather restaurant offers made-to-order breakfast and lunch, including a variety of delicious daily specials, plus 24-hour grab-and-go options.  

Food Culture 

Whether you are seeking homecooked favorites, a cozy bistro, a quick cup of coffee or a more elevated gourmet experience, Landis Homes dining options will exceed your expectations. Our dedicated and professional team expertly balances taste and appearance with nutrition, responsible sourcing and excellent customer service.
