Lakeview Ranch, A Vacker Place Residence, prides itself on the level of care provided at both residences. The Darwin house offers an escape from the beaten path, quietly tucked beside Lake Washington just a few short miles south of Darwin, Minnesota. To the east of our Darwin house is our newest residence, the Dassel house, which lies on a peninsula surrounded by wetlands; ideal for watching the birds. At both facilities, art, music and animal therapy plays a crucial piece in the care puzzle. Whether it is in the summertime outside enjoying the beautiful grounds or in the winter soaking up sunlight in the solarium, our residents feel at peace in these tranquil locations.
