Numerous aspects of Arabella Retirement Living in Belleville are remarkable, but the standout for us is the luxurious suites that will form the center of the lifestyle change you’ll go through here. The fully contemporary designs are spectacular, noteworthy for the wonderful views of the Lake. Belleville seniors and their families should be excited for this wonderfully conceived project.
Opened in 2020, Arabella brings together all that is excellent about contemporary senior care and retirement living. This community is built and run by a local, family-owned-and-operated company, meaning that there's a personal touch to service here and a local feel to the building. There’s a palpable commitment to quality, and to the comfort and care of Belleville area seniors.
The vision here is to create a community-centered lifestyle focused on excellence, including the finest in dining, luxurious amenities, combined with the beauty of the local scenery. Of course, there will also be care available if needed. The availability of care, tailored to your needs, is the right answer for couples where one spouse requires some personal assistance. It’s also an ideal solution for downsizing GTA seniors who want to be closer to family in eastern Ontario.

My mother has raved about the meals every time we have spoken. Especially with her being a good cook and a rather picky eater, this is a testament to the Arabella menu and chefs. Whenever I visit her, it brings me joy to see her being so well taken care of; with all the activities offered, especially the swimming pool.
My mother moved here two months ago. The entire experience and transition into retirement living has been exceptional thanks to the team at Arabella. She loves it here, raves about how good the food is whenever we talk.
I toured Arabella after a close family member had made a difficult decision that they needed to downsize. What a well thought out and complete facility with excellent programming already in place and fantastic views unlike any other option available in Belleville. We spoke with a couple of people that are already living there and they had great things to say about Arabella life. The staff that we met were very genuine and despite the facility being new, their experience came shining through. Top notch retirement residence and very much looking forward to moving day.
My great aunt recently moved in and she’s been having a great experience. Good service, high quality rooms, and lots of activities. Great location, cannot recommend enough.
My Grandmother loves her new home. Having her move into this new residence has given me [peace] of mind. The staff are very friendly, the food is great, she especially loves the view of the lake from her room. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for luxury retirement living.
My mother has settled in and the care has exceeded expectations. I can't say enough good things about Arabella and their staff... Maria and Diana [were] amazing to work with [in] the logistics for my mother to move into Arabella. They [were] extremely patient with all of our questions and even made house calls to get the final paperwork signed given my mother's mobility issues. I was really impressed by their caring for the residents.
It’s modern and bright, with uplifting decor and colours. The suites are full of natural light, with on-trend flooring and fixtures. Mom has never looked back, and has no regrets about having made the move when she did. Covid restrictions and protocols certainly added some drama, yet I knew Mom was safer than being on her own in her condo... What I have appreciated right from the beginning is the excellent communication with all of the staff. The staff are friendly, outgoing, and always have a smile. If I need any information, I can email anyone directly. It's just been a very seamless transition from Mom living in her own condo to moving.
Mom has fully embraced the active lifestyle of the Arabella - between fitness classes and activities... She’s very happy.
Very excited for this to open ! Sales team is very friendly and flexible, it has local owners that are very kind and caring as well. My father has a room reserved on the top floor, he can’t wait to enjoy the water views from his balcony 👍
