What makes this Maple Grove senior living option unique?

The Executive Director says, “What I think makes us unique is our energy and environment. We are so down-to-earth and comfortable. We look and feel like a cabin up north in Minnesota. Everyone in Minnesota has a cabin, either in the woods or on the lake, so this is just like the second home they are used to. We are spacious, have lots of light, and are bustling with people who care about each other.”

Rose Arbor is located in Maple Grove, Minnesota, a city that brings together the best of both worlds: a scenic, nature-oriented atmosphere with the convenience of the metropolitan Twin Cities nearby. The cabin-like architecture and cozy interior make the community a perfect place for seniors to unwind and relax while enjoying the gorgeous scenery surrounding the community. 

“There isn’t another retirement community like ours anywhere and the welcoming, friendly atmosphere is also unique,” the director says. “Adult children searching for a community often pick Rose Arbor because their parents want a community of friends and neighbors like they had at their lake home or hunting cabin.”
