Customer Reviews

Kindly, accommodating staff

Was here in a bachelor suite for a couple of weeks post hip surgery in May of 2018. I found staff very accommodating. I needed someone with me for a couple of days and a mattress was supplied for her for that time as well as furnishing the suite for me for my whole stay
The food was great with lots of options, and a real event in the day. I liked that the main meal is served at noon. I found the two week stay very pleasant. Although there were many activities offered every day, I did not participate in much so have no real opinion.
I liked that my dog could have stayed with me.
Downside is that the short term stays are only if they have a suite available at the time and there is no nursing care .

No Regrets

3 months in and no regrets.
Living in a seniors retirement home is an adjustment after living in your own home. It takes about 3 months to settle in. Longlake Chateau is an amazing place. The staff are all top drawer and the fellow residents are varying..some use walkers, wheelchairs or not and all are interesting. I chose to come here and if you are reading this you may be considering a seniors residence..why wait. A positive attitude is the most important thing you can bring. No car? No worries. There is bus runs 5 days a week to take you to all your appointments, your bank, shopping malls, excursions twice a week. I found I liked it better with each passing day. I feel fortunate to have been directed to Longlake Chateau. No need to look elsewhere.

Nice but could improve.

They are quite nice there. The challenge is the constant yearly increase of monthly rent. Average $200. Should have a much more updated place with those increases.
The food is nice. The cleaning and serving staff are wonderful. Slow to fix issues in apartments

Very thorough tour with all of our questions answered. Very fine meal provided, prepared and served well. Opportunity to walk about and talk to other residents.

Big, bright facility with friendly staff and residents. Rooms are reasonable size for the price. Lots of activities and common areas. Especially drawn to having patio or easy outdoor access for door.

I toured the facility on Feb. 7th. The location is ideal - there is a mall with liquor store, grocery store etc. right down the street, plus a library and restaurant right across the street. I found Long Lake Chateau to be a welcoming happy place and the residence seemed happy. The building and apartments are a little older and are showing their age but were clean and well kept. The one bedroom apartment was very nice - bright and large. The private dining room is a great feature as are the views of the lake. My Dad is seriously considering moving to this facility.

A great place

I like this community and the staff that are very nice and caring. The community was very clean and I enjoyed the meals that were provided. They offere a lot of great activities. I would recommend others to see this great community for great care.

A place that is welcoming

My dad is in the process of moving in this weekend. Our tour showed how warm and welcoming the Long Lake Chateau is. You call tell how happy the residents are by going in during meal time. Everyone is lively and chatting. Such a great feeling. The place is clean and the staff appear to really care. I talked to a few of the long term residents and the all spoke highly of living there.

Outstanding Community

This is an amazing community, and my father is doing very well since his move here. He has adjusted very well to this community, and I'am pleased with all they have done for us. The community looks great, they do a great job with the cleanliness of the place. The staff is wonderful. I'am very impressed with them. They have many activities offered for the residents. It has been a lovely experience, and I would recommend this community.

Very nice facility but I would prefer more of a gym. Great people


The Longlake Chateau screams elegance and beauty and really everything here has been totally positive vibes from the start.

A place for my mother-in-law

very diligent about checking on my mother and welcoming her to the community. a bit pricey, but hopefully the cost will even out with her increased happiness.


My in-laws moved here 3 months ago. The managers have been really good with a very difficult move. The other staff have been good as well. My in-laws enjoy the trips and have made new friends.

The Best Place For My Mom

Caring staff that has been willing to go above and beyond to help my Mom settle in and feel at home. The food is simply amazing! My Mom has been there only one week and has already begun to feel at home because of the kindness and patience of both the staff and the other residents. I know without a doubt that I have found the best place in the world for my Mom at this time in her life!
