Friends and Family Celebrations
Birthdays, anniversaries, or holiday celebrations are welcomed. We have a variety of small and large rooms available for your celebrations. If you would like to reserve a space for a large gathering or a dining room to have a quiet family meal together, just let us know.
Ecumen Detroit Lakes is very fortunate to offer three lovely courtyards with sitting areas where you can enjoy the birds, sunshine and flowers or have a picnic lunch with family and friends under the gazebo. Our main courtyard features a propane grill for your backyard barbeque enjoyment. Raised planters and community gardens are available to plant and grow your own flowers or vegetables.
Shopping for that someone special is easier with a visit to “The Pines”. Our gift shop located near the Chapel Entrance of the nursing home is managed by the Ecumen Detroit Lakes Auxiliary. It provides residents and visitors the opportunity to shop for gifts, greeting cards, and seasonal gift items at reasonable prices.
From reducing cardiovascular disease to easing loneliness, animals play a vital role in health and happiness. Ecumen Detroit Lakes is a “pet friendly” campus. One small pet is welcomed at The Madison, Lamplighter Manor, the NorthShore Townhomes, and in special situations, at the nursing home. We also enjoy visiting pets and animals. Contact activities if you would like to bring in your pet for a visit.
