The Fairfax is Northern Virginia’s premier community for retired military officers and their spouses. Established in 1989 by the nonprofit Army Retirement Residence Foundation-Potomac (ARRF-P), our residents take pride in our rich history steeped in military traditions, and we are also honored to offer an opportunity for non-military residents to call The Fairfax home.
Residents and families will tell you that the beauty of our community grounds is unparalleled. And, because so many of our residents are looking for an active, healthy lifestyle, we provide opportunities to enjoy the features of our stunning property, including:
Because most of our residents have the shared connection of serving in our military or government, our activities calendar is tailored to their common interests. We host frequent trips to Old Town Alexandria, the Kennedy Center, museums such as the National Marine Corps Museum, as well as overnight trips to Cape May, resorts in Pennsylvania, and many other historical locations up and down the East Coast.
We emphasize our annual events as an opportunity to gather and celebrate the incredible men and women who live among us and have served our country by hosting celebrations on Independence Day, Veteran’s Day, Memorial Day, and other meaningful occasions.
Each day, we host a variety of activities, including yoga classes; bridge games; lectures; current events discussions; musical performances; and writing and poetry groups. We take pride in our culinary excellence, and frequently feature theme nights as well as pop-up farm-to-table dinners in the courtyard.
We would love to talk with you and your family about what life is like at The Fairfax. We invite you to give us a call, schedule a tour, and talk with us about the options for enjoying the next chapter of life among new friends and beautiful surroundings.
