If the winter doldrums have you tired of your own four walls, it’s time to get out and explore your options for a new home and a new lifestyle at The Crossings at Sweetbriar, a Landmark Homes 55+ community in the scenic countryside of Lebanon County.
The Crossings at Sweetbriar will host a Cabin Fever Reliever event from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23, where you can enjoy a light lunch at the community clubhouse and socialize with current homeowners. Afterward, tour the model home and quick move-in homes, where you’ll be greeted with sweet treats and warm beverages.
The Crossings at Sweetbriar is more than simply a place to buy a beautiful new home. It’s a community all its own, with the clubhouse as its hub.

It includes a gathering room with floor-to-ceiling fireplace, a gaming area with pool table, a wet bar and full-service kitchen for a full-range of social events. The clubhouse also has an activity room, large multipurpose room and a fitness room. The covered porch, perfect for socializing in warmer months, overlooks an outdoor heated, salt water pool.
For those who love the outdoors in any season, the neighborhood has a natural pond, scenic green space, and numerous gazebos along a network of walking trails.
