The Cottages at Columbia Village’s history is new and exciting to learn about! The Cottages were first established in the year 2001, and since then have grown into nine campuses. These include The Cottages of Emmett, Weiser, Payette, Mountain Home, Boise, Lochsa Falls, Meridian, Middleton, and most recently Columbia Village. 

All About The Cottages at Columbia Village

The Cottages at Columbia Village is one of the newest campuses to join The Cottages. It is located at 3521 E Lake Forest Dr. This campus was an existing Assisted Living and Memory Care facility that had been in operation for over a decade. The campus consists of four homes that can accommodate up to fifteen residents, giving it the small, family-like environment that The Cottages prides itself on. This and many other reasons are why it was the perfect choice for the owners to bring this location into the Cottages fold. In July of 2022, The organization announced that The Cottages at Columbia Village would be joining their family of resident-centered assisted living facilities. 

After undergoing some renovations and remodeling, there are currently two homes that are open and have residents residing in them. The other two buildings are in the process of going through renovations before being opened. The Cottages is excited about this investment in the community’s structure and know it will bring residents joy with the updated features. The residents already love the campus, too, especially the rich outside experience in the courtyard. 

The team is fantastic and is led by Mel, who has been an Administrator for over eight years and has worked as a Caregiver for over 15 years. Mel has done an excellent job training our team members and providing an exceptional environment for our residents. The Cottages at Columbia Village team is very involved with the community and loves to take the residents out and about to the local shops and events.
