Location & Directions

Meadow Lakes Retirement Community

300 Meadow Lakes
East Windsor, NJ

In East Windsor, NJ: Our retirement community is a real find.


The Meadow Lakes retirement community in East Windsor, NJ is a short ride from Princeton—and a world all its own. Right next door to the Peddie School, within the spectacular beauty of a registered arboretum, and graced with serene lakes and walking paths, it’s a setting that inspires your heart and refreshes your senses. Because Meadow Lakes is just a few miles from downtown Princeton and Princeton University, you’ll find a diverse, active population and a wealth of opportunities for social, cultural, entertainment and educational enrichment. And if you’re looking for a different kind of adventure, New York, Philadelphia, Atlantic City and the Jersey Shore beaches are all within an hour’s ride.


From the NJ Turnpike North or South: Take exit 8 (Route 33/Hightstown/Freehold). Stay to right and take the immediate exit for Milford Road. Proceed for about one mile until Milford Road ends at a stop sign (at a T intersection with Etra Road). Turn right on Etra Road and proceed for not quite a mile. You will pass over the NJ Turnpike. Meadow Lakes is the first left after that, opposite Ward Street.

From the Shore Area: Take Route 195 to the Allentown/Hightstown exit (Route 539). Turn right towards Hightstown. Pass over the NJ Turnpike. Continue on 539 and go past the Peddie School golf course. Take the second right (Route 571) on to Etra Road.  The main entrance to Meadow Lakes is ¼ mile on the right. It is the third entrance off Etra Road. You will go past an entrance to the Cottage Homes and an employee entrance before reaching the main entrance, marked with a Meadow Lakes sign.
