260 Lake St Rouses Point NY 12979
There’s nothing quite like lakeside living. Watching the colors of the sunrise dance on the surface of the water, listening to the gentle lapping of waves against the shore, taking a stroll along the water’s edge — it’s a serene escape. 260 Lake Street is nestled into this natural beauty, as a resort-style senior living community on the shoreline of Lake Champlain. We’re located in the quaint village of Rouses Point, New York, where locals revel in the beauty and adventure of life by the lake. We make it our mission to be your trusted guides on this leg of your life’s journey, with a management team and care staff demonstrating expertise in senior health. Our care begins with listening: We partner with you and your loved ones to envision a healthy and fulfilling life in our community. We’re able to serve up to 32 residents in our single-level, ranch-style home. Pets are welcome, too! Our community is designed with attention to the smallest detail for the safety and comfort of all, wrapped in special touches that create a charming, homey environment.
We offer distinct floor plans including studio suites and one-bedroom apartments, each providing plenty of space for you to style with personal furnishings and decor. All living quarters come complete with a private bathroom and shower, with options to accommodate limited-mobility or wheelchair access. If you fancy yourself an entertainer, you might be keen on the floor plan featuring a wet bar, perfect for hosting a few friends for cocktails. Some living quarters include spacious walk-in closets for extra storage space. Oversized private bathrooms are another appealing option. Individual temperature control allows you to adjust the room climate to your own liking. For the safety of all residents, every unit includes an emergency alert system. High-speed internet, cable TV, and phone services come standard as well.
Mealtimes are often a highlight of our days, as residents gather around the traditional elegance of the classic wooden tables in our dining room and await ever-changing gourmet dishes. The welcoming room features large windows for generous natural light that plays off of the rosy cream walls and subtly patterned carpet. Our chef-inspired menu makes use of fresh ingredients in seasonal cuisines and traditional favorites, balancing the comfort of the familiar with the excitement of new tastes. If you have specific dietary needs or preferences, like kosher or vegetarian, just let us know — we’ll dish it out. We approach senior nutrition mindfully, as we believe a nourishing breakfast, lunch, and dinner contributes to a better, healthier life.
Indoor Common Areas
Our community features plenty of nicely appointed shared spaces for residents to enjoy outside of their living quarters. The Grand Lake Room features stunning views of Lake Champlain, with plush sofas, high-back chairs, and ottomans inviting you to relax and watch sailboats coast along the lake. On chilly winter nights, residents gather near the fireplace, sharing stories while listening to the stylings of a talented friend or musical guest on our grand piano. The activities room bustles with friends playing shuffleboard, piecing together a puzzle on the large central table, or browsing through shelves filled with books across genres. Stop by the lobby to visit our concierge service, or gaze at the playful saltwater fish in our large marine aquarium. The fitness room provides a treadmill and bike for movement when it’s too chilly to take a lakeside stroll. Pamper yourself in the salon, where you can soak in a soothing jacuzzi to ease any muscle pain.
Outdoor Common Areas
Our private outdoor courtyard brings an easily accessible slice of Upstate New York’s natural surroundings to our doorstep. A spacious patio faces Lake Champlain, providing a perfect spot for lounging with a picturesque view. Hummingbirds zip between feeders, and squirrels scurry around while residents laugh from bench swings. A wraparound path circles the grounds, flanked by plantings of colorful annuals and perennials during the summer months. Residents love to walk the path, catching a cool breeze off the lake before settling in at a picnic table for a round of cards.
Lakeside living lets you set your own pace, with as much socializing or leisure time as you please. We curate activities for residents designed to keep minds and bodies active. Our staff loves to host birthday and holiday parties — especially the Halloween trick-or-treat night, when you might spot a spooky witch or mischievous fairy in our halls. We’ll transform our private courtyard into a barbeque joint and serve up grilled delights picnic-style. Movie nights bring friends together to laugh at classic films and new releases, while bingo nights get pretty rowdy! Our residents love to create original art during watercolor and sketch classes. On any given night, you might find a singalong as a friend strums a guitar and others join in harmony. Walking clubs and exercise classes keep residents moving so they’ll be in shape for our dance parties!
We offer an array of services for your ultimate comfort and convenience, so you can reclaim time for doing what makes you happiest. Our housekeeping service will clean around your personal treasures, dusting knickknacks, vacuuming around wardrobes, and emptying trash bins to maintain a tidy and inviting living space. We’ll keep your clothes and linens freshly laundered as well. Our community salon and barber shop attend to the style and grooming choices of our residents. On-site devotional services provide spiritual support in the comfort of the community. While we provide plenty of parking for personal cars, we also offer chauffeur service for the convenience of those who no longer drive.

Care Types Offered
260 Lake Street is considered an independent living community. Independent living communities – also known simply as retirement communities – are geared towards seniors who are able to live on their own, without daily assistance, and prefer to live among people their age.
