The Cherry Blossom Lounge—A Place for Crane’s Mill Residents to Relax and Unwind

Imagine being on an all-inclusive vacation…every single day. That’s the life for residents of Crane’s Mill in Northern New Jersey. Luxury apartments, fine dining and friends and neighbors to share in all the fun.

Could a person ask for anything more? Well, how about a private lounge complete with fine furnishings, flat-panel television and a key club?

Crane’s Mill residents “see” your luxury lounge and “raise” you the fact that it’s located in Towne Square, so it’s connected to every apartment home in the community. We’ll go “all-in” and tell you that residents have impromptu card games, and can easily “up the ante” by arranging to have catered food and reserved tables with a simple phone call to our concierge.

Think we’re bluffing? Take a look for yourself at our video slideshow! You’ll see our actual residents enjoying good times at The Cherry Blossom Lounge—something we see on a daily basis at Crane’s Mill!

Bridge is a popular game at Crane's Mill

Bridge is a very popular pastime here at Crane’s Mill. Our Director of Community Programming frequently plans Bridge games in our Cherry Blossom Lounge. In addition, many residents put together their own Bridge games throughout the week.

Personally, this author has seen this card game bring together people from all walks of life. For example, our Assisted Living and Independent Living residents often meet up for weekly games, as do guests from the outside community including residents’ friends and family members.

It’s just one of many ways that people include their current friends, and make new friends, here at Crane’s Mill. Our resident-run welcoming committee reaches out to every new resident to learn all about them, and does a wonderful job of pairing the person up with current residents who share their interests.
