Unforgettable Adventures, Unbelievably Close. 

Channing House is in the quiet, in-town Professorville neighborhood of Palo Alto. Its WalkScore of 88 makes it Palo Alto’s third most walkable neighborhood. Most errands are easily accomplished on foot or by bicycle (WalkScore rates it as a “Biker’s Paradise”). Our amazing location has attracted active, vibrant seniors for decades. 

Walk a few blocks south to the grocery store or two blocks east to downtown Palo Alto and you’ll find more than 100 restaurants, boutiques and attractions. Bike to Stanford University. Stroll through the rustic homes of the Professorville Historic District just one street to the east or walk a little farther and visit the famous Hewlett garage where Hewlett-Packard was founded. And when you’re ready to get out of the city, the marshland walking and biking trails of the Baylands Nature Preserve are just minutes away. So are mountain hiking, kayaking, sailing and more.

Culture fans will love the museums, galleries and performance venues on the Stanford campus, throughout the city and just minutes away in San Jose. And if you left your heart in San Francisco, The City and all it has to offer are just a little over an hour by trains that depart from and return frequently to the nearby Caltrain station.

Finally, with an average rainfall of just a little over 15” and temperatures that rarely go below 44 °F or above 77 °F, you’ll find a perfect climate for anything you want to do.
