Where Potential is Ageless

An Investment for Your Future

Independent Living Costs

Moving to St. John’s Herr Estate is about so much more than relocation! It’s an investment in your future, freeing you of the responsibilities and hassles of homeownership, enabling you to do the things you love and offering you the security of quality care.

St. John’s offers two convenient entrance fee plans, allowing you to choose the option that best suits your needs.

We are a pet-friendly community!

Traditional Entrance Fee Plan:
This plan requires a lower upfront investment to move to St. John’s Herr Estate. The refundable portion of the entrance fee balance declines at a rate of 2% each month. After 50 months (4 years, 2 months), there is no remaining balance.

Asset Preservation Entrance Fee Plan:
This plan preserves your assets by guaranteeing a 75% refund of the original entrance fee paid to the resident(s) or their estate after the residence is vacated and reoccupied.


Cottage residents enjoy expansive views of our rolling green lawns with easy access to all campus amenities. Cottages come in a variety of two-bedroom designs. Find the one that’s perfect for you!
