St. Columban’s on the Lake Retirement Home
St. Columban’s on the Lake provides a serene setting on the shores of Lake Erie. The home’s design and spacious grounds create a pleasant, family-like atmosphere with ample support services for seniors. St. Columban’s is located on 50 park-like acres of rolling landscaped lawns, a variety of gardens, wooded areas, walking paths, benches and a gazebo.
The home was built in the 1920s by the Columban Fathers as a seminary for young men preparing to enter the priesthood, and then acquired by the Columban Sisters in 1970 and remodeled as a home for our elderly residents. Much of the original woodwork, windows and other unique features have been retained while still providing a modern, safe environment.
Space for Living with Room to Breathe
The home’s fifty private rooms — including one- and two-bed suites — are fully-carpeted and furnished, and residents may also bring their own furnishings.
Our window-filled Anniversary Room is large and bright, and serves as our main gathering space for activities and frequent musical performances.
The Chinese Room was originally designed to house artifacts brought from China by the Columban Fathers and offers a place of quiet contemplation.
Our dining room, coffee shop and beauty salon have all been recently renovated and are enjoyed daily by both residents and guests alike.
A Loving Approach to Senior Living
St. Columban’s on the Lake provides our seniors with a pleasant, home-like atmosphere and extensive support services. Living here enables elderly couples and singles of every faith and race to enjoy full lives in relative independence.
We focus on the physical, intellectual, spiritual, social, vocational, and emotional aspects of each resident’s life to preserve a spirit of independence and personal dignity. Each resident is assured a comprehensive and individualized approach.
We provide residents with a wide variety of activities that support their overall well-being. Each activity promotes physical fitness, manual dexterity, socialization or mental acuity. Organized activities are voluntary and personal hobbies are encouraged. We also ensure that residents have quiet time to themselves whenever they like.
