About Lantern Hill

A Distinctive Retirement Community in Union County


Set on 20 wooded acres in Union County, New Jersey, Lantern Hill is a vibrant retirement community for people 62-plus. Here, you’ll enjoy the best of both worlds. Shop the local businesses and boutiques of downtown Summit and Berkeley Heights, or escape to the great outdoors at one of many nearby parks. The New Providence rail station connects you to midtown Manhattan in about 50 minutes.

As a continuing care community, we offer independent living, plus on-site assisted living, sub-acute rehabilitation, nursing care, long-term care, and memory care.


The Lantern Hill Story

We opened in 2015 to meet Union County’s growing demand for senior living and continuing care. Our first apartment homes sold quickly, and our community continues to grow.

Currently, our 20-acre senior living campus includes 275 independent living apartment homes, a central clubhouse, and continuing care residences should your needs ever change. Our dedicated staff totals over 250.
