About Us

Set on 55 beautiful acres of gently rolling countryside next to Lakeside Golf Course in tranquil Stillwater and only minutes away from Oklahoma State University, The Ranch will perfectly balance the comforts of small hometown living with the cultural and educational enrichments of an internationally renowned university community. Residents will enjoy an active lifestyle including frequent social events and cultural activities, replete with resort-quality amenities as well as access to high-quality on-site health care.

The Ranch will offer a variety of residential options for upscale senior living, all featuring gorgeous interiors, custom finishes and magnificent landscaping. Here is a place that will redefine everything you ever thought you knew about how retirement can be. The Ranch will be a campus of beautifully appointed cottage and apartment homes nestled in a private and serene setting yet encouraging an active, fulfilling and independent lifestyle.


Located between Tulsa and Oklahoma City, The Ranch celebrates the natural beauty and warm charm of the Stillwater, Oklahoma area while keeping sight of the many benefits of metropolitan opportunities.

The proximity of a dynamic, energized college town with a range and tradition of academic, cultural and athletic events provides many opportunities for youthful perspectives and relaxed retirement living to intersect. This is perfectly reflected in the formal agreement between The Ranch and the Oklahoma State University Alumni Association, as the latter formally endorses Epworth Living at The Ranch.
