If we were putting together a list of the ten best retirement communities in Canada, Lanes Retirement in St. John’s could well be on the list. It offers “living at its very finest,” essentially everything you expect in a superb, completely contemporary five-star resort, except it’s a place you can call home. It’s impossible to convey in words all that makes this 142,000 square foot community amazing … the list of amenities alone reads like a truly blue-sky wish list. We’ll try, here, to show you why you need to take a close look at this Atlantic Canada retirement destination.

The very first thing that will strike you about Lane’s Retirement Living is the soaring atrium, naturally sunlit atrium 3 storeys high. That provides an introduction to Lane’s but also sets the standard for what you’ll discover as you continue throughout the building. The list of amenities available is truly jaw-dropping, including Sheila’s Fine Dining, a Robin’s coffee shop, O’Malley’s pub, Poppy and Pine Hair Studio, a swimming pool, fitness centre, a health and wellness centre, bowling alley, putting green, a movie theatre, a games area with pool, shuffleboard, and more, a general store, a horticulture room, and a woodworking room. There’s truly something for everyone here, the kind of place that will inspire you daily.

For all that, the luxurious amenities are just the beginning of what makes Lane’s special. The community created by staff, seniors, and even visiting family members makes this something special. The recreation director has done a great job of livening things here daily, and residents have responded. There’s also care staff available including a house doctor and nursing staff, in case they are needed. With views of the Atlantic Ocean outside and a wonderful community and building indoors, this truly is a place where seniors will love living and which family will enjoy visiting—likely as often as possible!

What people say about Lanes Retirement Living

It has a lot of amenities that we felt mom would enjoy, like bowling, and the pool and the hot tub. It was a beautiful facility when we had a tour. The rooms were spacious with big beautiful windows, so [mom] felt [right] at home when she came through, and I know that she’s in really good hands here.
—Wendy Harding, family member

I love it. I think it’s absolutely fantastic. When someone comes to visit me, I tell them, ‘Just look what I have here.’ I think this definitely is living. I can’t ask for any better. I really feel [home].
—Dorothy Harding, resident

We always were a close family and we always looked out for each other. With mom here, now, we don’t have to worry because she gets the best of care here.
—Wallace Pottle, family member

You couldn’t find any better in St. John’s. This is a lovely retirement home. Everything is nice. The food is good, and it’s a lovely dining room here.
—Anne Pottle, resident
