Description of The Lake Merritt - Independent Senior Living


We invite you to experience the upscale lifestyle that is found at The Lake Merritt. Our community is designed for active seniors, such as yourself, who aren't content to spend their days sitting and watching the world pass them by. Here you can fill your days with scenic walks, sailing or gardening - the choice is yours! As a bonus, our location in the “Gold Coast” district means you are just minutes from Bay Area transportation options and the uptown district.

The Lake Merritt is a family-owned and operated independent living community. Our community used to be the illustrious Lake Merritt Hotel, and its proud history is evident in much of the décor. We take great pride in being hands-on owners and having staff who are proud to have worked with us for many years.

Featured Amenities

Our residents relish new experiences and learning, which is why our activity program is designed to provide entertainment and stimulation. The events you can join include the weekly lecture series “Conversations at The Lake Merritt,” brain aerobic activities, museum outings and many more! We guarantee you will always find your days filled with friends and fun.

Your new home at The Lake Merritt has all the conveniences of a stand-alone home with the benefits of community living. You can select from studio or one-bedroom floor plans that include full kitchens with stainless steel appliances, wall-to-wall carpeting and nine-foot ceilings. Best of all, your residence has gorgeous lake and city views.

Available Services

In the Terrace Room, you will enjoy fine dining with a view. Our chef prepares delicious meals using seasonally-fresh, locally-sourced meats and produce three times a day. We can also customize meals to meet special dietary needs. And you are welcome to invite family to join you anytime.
