Country Cottage Assisted Living is a quaint community nestled in beautiful South Huntsville – just north of Martin Road. For over 30 years, we have been helping families just like yours. We are here to be an extension of your family and to help your loved one live their life their way.


At The Cottage, you’ll find a cozy, Southern community that offers both physical support and a welcoming and active environment for your loved one. With regular opportunities to challenge the mind and nurture the heart, our mission is to offer our residents the ability to achieve their desired quality of life.




The cost of care and service varies for each individual resident based on the size and location of the apartment they choose, as well as the kind of care and services needed. We’re here to help you and understand this can be a difficult time for your family and your budget.

At Country Cottage in Huntsville, the cost of care starts at $2,680. This rate is paired with a customized personal care plan called CareSteps. After an assessment by our Cottage staff, your loved one will receive a care plan that is specific to his or her individual needs. This plan is revisited every three months or with any significant change, so if your loved one moves in and becomes more independent, his or her cost for care would decrease. If he or she has a decline, the cost of care would increase with the additional staff attention your loved one would require.

The Cottage also offers these additional monthly services:

  • Second Occupant $1,092
  • Cable Television: Included
  • Phone starting at $22
  • Internet: Included
