You’ll find us at the end of a cul-de-sac, a short walk from the river, in the small, quiet town of Milton-Freewater, OR. The charm of our town extends to our community inside and out. Our gardens are something to see and enjoy on our walking paths. The lobby is spacious and welcoming. We’ve created special areas dedicated to relaxing and enjoying life.
Residents can look forward to a variety of healthy and delicious meal options. We feature several options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as soup, salad, and sandwiches to provide residents with a wider selection of meal options.
