About Arboretum Cohousing

Cohousing offers the best of both worlds — your own home nestled in a vibrant, multi-generational community with lots of opportunities for sharing and socializing. We are a member-developed & member-managed community of 40 homes, with a mix of multi-family buildings and free-standing houses. We work together to make Arboretum Cohousing (ArbCo) a great place to live: we take care of the land and buildings and make the decisions ourselves.

We are located on Erin & Orchard Sts, near Lake Wingra and the Vilas Zoo. Our 2.1 acre site has places to play, gardens, chickens, trees and a patio. Our common house features a large community dining room and kitchen, playrooms, music room with a fireplace and grand piano, media room, exercise room with floor space and equipment, laundry facilities, and shared guest rooms for when family or friends visit.

Our members range in age from 6 months to 86 years and come from all walks of life. Our common house is fully handicap accessible. We strive to be inclusive and welcoming. Arboretum Cohousing is legally organized as a condominium.
