I Visited This Facility

We visited the Lodge, it's clean, and seemed to have a convenient organizational arrangement. The concept is good, the units seem a little small, and their kitchens are minimal, and that doesn't fit our lifestyle. It's all-inclusive, and that doesn't work well with us. There's a modest exercise room, a walking path, transport to malls, and internal entertainment. The tour was good, the enthusiasm was great, and the person who showed us around was knowledgeable. The food came across to me as institutional.

The Lodge at White Bear was very nice, the gentleman that toured me was fifteen minutes late, but that gave me the opportunity to see the general area. Everyone was very courteous, it was in a beautiful setting, but we would prefer it in an area closer to our place. The rooms were small, very clean, well-maintained, and quite modest.

The Lodge At White Bear was nice and clean, and all amenities were included in it (like the food). There were activities, and a lot of social attraction. The staff was nice and professional. It's clean and well-kept and it's very centrally located next to a lot of different things like churches and pharmacies. They apartments were smaller, but clean and well-kept. Some have balconies, some don't. There's a variety.

The Lodge at White Bear was beautiful. They had very friendly, kind, and accommodating people. The rooms were very nice. They had activities on a calendar with something going on every day. The pricing was pretty average in the Twin Cities compared to other ones that are of the same kind and quality.

My sisters are at The Lodge At White Bear. It's not assisted living, but it has assistance available. They have nurse on duty 24-hours a day, and if my sisters need further care, they can call for it. I like this place a lot. It's very homey, and people are very friendly. My sister is getting excellent care for her condition. It's a very nice place. The staff members are very friendly and very professional. Food is excellent. They have a beautiful dining room and nice apartments. The grounds are beautiful. It's accessible. I can go there as much as I want. Because it has a beautiful homey appeal, beautiful grounds, and beautiful inside, it is perfect. They have a chapel and laundry facilities. They have 3 meals a day and a lot of activities for the seniors. It's a very nice place. I would recommend it.

The Lodge at White Bear had both assisted and independent living, so if you became disabled and couldn't take care of yourself, you could just move right into their assisted care. The only thing I didn't like about it was that the rooms were too small for my bedroom furniture, and I didn't like the high community fee. I liked everything else. They had a guest room for the family. It was made up like a hotel room and had a bed for guests or family.

The Lodge and its staff were excellent. The rooms were a bit small and weren't really the design that my mom was looking for. However, the building itself was like an elegant hotel and comfortable. They had some very good activities and good benefits for the family as well like when your family wants to come and eat with you, you would not have to pay for it. When your family would like to come and stay, they only spend half the cost to stay in the facility. We all really liked it. In fact, when we left The Lodge at White Bear, my sister and my brother did not want to look at another facility. They just wanted to stay in that one. All around, I thought it was a much better facility.

My father-in-law is in The Lodge. He is settling in independent living and seems to be happy there. The staff has been helpful and friendly. We don't have any complaints. The food is OK, but I think it is a little plain for him. He is used to more ethnic cooking and a wider variety. However, it is satisfactory. Maybe they can improve on having a broader variety of food and different activities because he has not finding anything suitable in the activities.

The Lodge at White Bear was very friendly to the residents and had a homey atmosphere. It was interesting because you pick your apartment and then service would come to you. You would not have to move from the independent living wing to assisted living wing to memory care. We liked it because we would not have to move every time we get more fraile. The apartments were small, but everything that you needed was centralized because there was a dining room, a library, a big-screen TV, a community room and billiard room, so you would not be staying in your apartment much.

Within walking distance of various restaurants and eateries, The Lodge at White Bear is at the center of it all. Friendly staff that knows each resident by name, the facility offers an individualized and customized plan for each resident. Weekly maintenance of each resident's room, including linen washing, carpet maintainance and upkeep of each resident's bathroom. Transportation is provided for residents, however, since most sightseeing locations are within walking distance, most residents enjoy walking.
