Features and Amenities

We strive to create an active living senior community where our residents can thrive. Our promise of well-considered, high-quality design begins with individual homes and extends to shared spaces for all to enjoy.

Our extensive list of on-site amenities accounts for all seasons and any kind of weather. Indoors, the yoga studio and fitness center, art studio, hobby shop and more encourage creativity and wellness. Outdoors, beautifully landscaped spaces include a pool, lush community gardens and our popular outdoor fireplace – a favorite place for catching up with friends and neighbors. Inside each apartment in Lake Elmo, Minnesota, you’ll find quartz countertops, luxury vinyl plank flooring, and individual climate control. Each residence also includes a space in the covered garage.

The Resident Experience Director is at the helm of all the exciting and diverse programming offered at Amira Lake Elmo. We sometimes refer to this one-of-a-kind individual as the cruise director of our senior living community. Working in collaboration with our Resident Social Committee, the Resident Experience Director plans events and ongoing activities – both at our community and within the wider local community. The ever-evolving schedule might include happy hour in the great room, a friendly game of poker in the clubhouse, or an outing to a Twins game.
