WE WELCOME YOU If it feels like home when you walk in the door at The Lake Merritt, it is because of the energy and vision that we have dedicated to the property since we acquired it over 25 years ago! That home-like feeling has come from our love for this unique place, one of Oakland’s treasured, historic landmarks. You will notice our attention to detail, the elegance of our light-filled spaces and well-designed comforts. All have been created to make your living at The Lake Merritt a pleasure. As 3rd & 4th generation Oaklanders, we are hands-on owners and you will see us and our family members here a lot. We laughingly say that sometimes we are here so much that the lobby is like our living room and the Terrace Room Restaurant is our dining room. The Lake Merritt came into being because we fell in love with the building and haven’t let go. We helped save it from a condo developer’s wrecking ball and our efforts have transformed it into one of the most beloved and special places in Oakland. It’s complete with top-notch amenities, healthy cuisine, a dining room with a fantastic view and wonderful caring employees. We provide independent senior living in a gracious environment to age in place. You can call it home.
