Lifestyle in a simplified space

Studio apartments at Northern Lakes are large at 411 or 435 square feet. Studios are also known as efficiency apartments. The sleeping and living areas are one open space. The kitchen is galley-style with the same full-sized appliances as larger floorplans. The bathroom is equally sized to larger floorplans as well. There are carpet and laminate floor options. All apartments come unfurnished so you can make it your own. To show you how to live well in a studio-sized apartment we set up a model apartment and let the camera roll… check out our virtual tour to your left!

Northern Lakes has been a Godsend for my parents. My mom needs the added care and my dad can stay with her. The aides, caregivers and staff are so kind, caring, and professional. They provide such good care. The facility itself is beautiful, clean, and well maintained. It feels homey. 


Northern Lakes is taking extreme care at keeping my mother safe, comfortable, and entertained. They have found a way to make personal visits, to continue the exercise routines and having the residents work out at their doorway. My mom sits in her doorway and plays bingo with those on her floor for prizes.
