Just listen to what our future residents are talking about….

We are looking forward to our beautiful new home at The Lodge of Northbrook. We have added several custom features that makes it just perfect for our lifestyle – I still work part-time and my wife is busy with her bridge group and volunteer work.

I have looked at everything and when I found The Lodge of Northbrook, I knew it was just right for me. The location, the social programs, the transportation, and the optional dining program. With all my kids living out of town, I wanted a home in the north shore where I can keep all my own doctors and continue to go to my favorite local restaurants and shopping spots.
