If we're to rate in the 10-star option, this residence would rate way higher than the highest possible. I absolutely love it and would hate to leave. Friends, activities, and peace and quiet. I feel cared about and watched over gently.

The best place in town! The staff are all concerned and caring about us. They want only the best for us! Our chefs cook wonderful meals and have a nice variety. This virus has put a big demand on all of the staff, but they are real troopers and have pulled through. I moved into Chateau de Boise in October 2018 not only because of the many happy and friendly residents, but because of the professional, experienced and wonderful staff that went out of their way to make sure my visit was enjoyable. My questions were all answered and that this was without a question where I wanted live! I have never been happier. Our staff is great.

Professional staff, treat residents as real people! During Covid restrictions, they have learned our individual beverage preferences and how we like to be notified of breakfast. Personal touches like this extend to all areas - meals, activities, housecleaning, and relations to our families.

I have been here at Chateau since last Thanksgiving and I really can't say enough about it. The rooms are large and each one is different. The residents are friendly and interested in each other. The management staff really care about each individual and the general staff treat us as family. It's a happy place to be. I love them all. During Covid, they have gone out of their way for us.

More than pleased! Staff is friendly and fun. Always checking to see how I am. Housekeeping is on the ball. Easy to talk to and pleasant. Can't praise our servers enough! Young and fun - proud of their accomplishments and looking ahead for more schooling and adventures. Kitchen staff are friendly and anxious to accommodate. I'm content living here!!

Food and security are excellent. I moved to the community about a year ago after losing my wife of 57 years. The community helped make the transition easier.

The staff care for the residents like their extended family. They will make allowances for individuals who need a little extra help. I’ve only seen and experienced their patience, good humor and flexibility! Love them! They offer a wide variety of activities, have a library, and cupboards full of games and puzzles! If the resident wants meal in their room, they provide with no grumbling. They are so on top of things that so far there haven’t been any confirmed COVID cases. My mom feels safe and cared for there!

Chateau de Boise is fantastic and so far everything has been great. Right now, they're in isolation so the residents are not allowed out around campus. They have the residents' food brought to them and the staff is wonderful. It's an independent care community only. My parents are in a 2-bedroom cottage so it's outside and away from the main building. It's got a front patio, a back patio and a great handicapped bathroom, and it's lovely. So far, everybody that we have encountered is wonderful.

Chateau de Boise was very nice. The guide who gave us the tour was very informative and very nice. There seemed to be a very positive atmosphere. They had a lot to offer. They provide several activities. They have apartments in their main building, and then they have cottages, which are outside and are more independent. The staff members that I met were all very nice, informative, and helpful.

We chose Chateau de Boise for Dad and it's been very good. It's very comfortable, the staff is great, and he is quite happy there. The food is good, they have a work-out area, writing clubs, they watch movies, and they have art groups. He has a very adequate room with enough space. It had a new carpet when he moved in. It's comfortable, they come in and clean once a week, and it's pretty tidy. It's an older facility, so it's not as fancy as some, and the food is not extravagant, but it's one of the more affordable communities. It's a very good place.

Chateau de Boise is a very nice place and not too large. They have a lot of nice people there. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. My father-in-law has a nice one-bedroom, which is very sufficient and it has an outdoor patio. He's happy there. They go out of their way to be able to do things for their residents. They have a maintenance man that lets him work on the park benches and stuff outside to keep him busy because that's what he wants to do. They have trips to different places and different activities going on in the center itself. They had St. Patrick's Day shows before he moved in. The rooms are very nice, and they have walking areas. They have a gym that he uses, a library, card rooms, bingo, and a community TV room. They have buses that take them places, adequate food, and more than adequate events. It's worth the money.

The tour at Chateau de Boise was very nice and the staff was very helpful. It's one of the few places that actually knew that I was coming, and they were prepared for me. It was a nice place. They offered me lunch while I was there and took me around to some of the apartments and cottages. The dining area was very nice and had restaurant-style dining. They had a menu and several selections that were pretty good. The apartment I saw in the assisted living was more than adequate for one person, but it would be pretty cramped for two people. For independent, it would be OK for two people. The menu seemed pretty good, they had several choices to choose from and there seemed to be more than nutritious meals. The staff was really helpful and whatnot. They gave me a copy of their calendar for the month with everything that's going on to give me an idea of what they do with their residents. They have shopping trips to different stores within Boise, and trips to the botanical gardens where they do a Christmas lights show. They also have a schedule for taking people around to the hospital for their appointments and stuff like that.

Chateau de Boise was fine, and the cost was what I would expect. I can't say that I like it more than the other places I've visited. They have activities to keep the residents busy, and there's also a good, quiet spot for those who want some quiet time. The staff member who assisted me was very thorough and nice.

Chateau de Boise was very nice. We pulled up to an attractive building. They have a front desk, and we were greeted by management. However, it was very dark, and there were not enough windows. The people were very nice. The apartments were very small, and the halls were not very wide. There were lots of amenities.

Chateau de Boise's rooms were great and everything was nice, clean, well-decorated, and had fresh paint. People seemed happy, and the food was delicious. It was just a welcoming community. They had a game area on the second floor, and they have three wings that meet at the center. The quiet room is on the third floor accessible by an elevator. I really liked it, and my mother-in-law would love to live there.

The marketing director of Chateau de Boise was very helpful. I really appreciated his willingness to give me time and work with me. He talked to me about the financial aspects and gave me a tour. I got a really good impression after my first tour. The community was a little bit older than some of the others I've looked at, but it was kept very nicely. The rooms were nice and clean. I liked the overall cleanliness of the place, and it was a very nice environment. I liked the atmosphere in the dining area; it was like going to a restaurant. The folks that live there seemed to be enjoying the meals. I felt it would be a good home for my mom.

Chateau de Boise had apartments and studio rooms and was more like senior living rather than assisted living. It had beautiful apartments, a regular dining room, and restaurant-style meals where you order off the menu. It had a library, a regular beauty shop, parking for tenants, and a bus that took the residents to the bank, mall, or wherever they wanted to go. Their monthly price was considerably lower than others. They will let you stay there month-to-month for three months, and then after three months, you have to pay a one-time, non-reefundable fee, like a homeowner's association fee, for maintaining the grounds, painting, and upgrading the rooms when tenants move out. I liked that each resident has his own mailbox. I really liked the place, but I find the one-time fee outrageous.

Chateau de Boise was beautiful, and I was very impressed with it. The people were very nice, and the food was good. The grounds and rooms were nice, but the price was not. If they would lower their prices, it would be better. The residents were very nice and very happy. They seemed to like where they lived.

I liked Chateau de Boise very much. I liked the staff that I met and some of the people who lived there. I enjoyed talking to them. The price was right. When I was there, there was a group playing cards or games, and they were active. There was an employee with them. Another area that was open and easy to get to was the activity area. Exercise equipment was there, and that interested me.

The people at Chateau de Boise were just really nice and the place seemed like it would be a good fit for my dad. It's small, the people were personable, the dining room was nice, and the room would accommodate my dad fine. It's less than $1,500 a month.

Chateau de Boise is a very friendly place. The people are very friendly and it continues to be that way. I've been here about two months, and we have a lot of activities like card games, Wii Bowling, and Midnight Baseball. We've got people coming in. Actually, there's somebody downstairs playing the piano now, and it's really nice. We have adventure travels, scrabble, chess, checkers. All day long, they got something going on. They have a very good chef. The food is very good, too. I like this place very well. The staff was top-notch. They are very helpful and friendly. The residents are very friendly as well. It is a good place to be.

I would not live at Chateau de Boise because they keep it too hot. My relative is in a furnished room that is comparable to a hotel room. You eat downstairs, and a maid takes care of the room. They have an exercise room, patio, and a big cafeteria. I was not able to eat there, but the food smelled good.

The people were friendly at Chateau de Boise, but the place was outdated, not very nice, and not very clean. It was dark and dreary, as well.

Chateau de Boise was excellent. It’s much closer to where I live and spacious. It looks a little older but seemed to be in order, and the apartments and eating area were clean. Everybody looked healthy and happy. They accommodated us just fine, but my mother decided not to go to any facility.

Chateau De Boise was very nice and clean. They have friendly people and friendly staff. My only problem there is its assisted living; I don’t need assisted living. It was very nice, and everything was great. The friendly atmosphere is what I like the most.

My brother is all settled at Chateau de Boise. It is an independent living facility, so he gets his meals, he gets housekeeping, and he is quite satisfied with that arrangement. There are quite a few people who are using walkers, wheelchairs, and that kind of thing, but there are also a lot of people who are very ambulatory. It is about $1,000 less a month than assisted living. At this point, he is able to manage his laundry and getting dressed, and that kind of thing. The staff has been very helpful, and the food is good. They have some choices if they don't like what is on the menu. His room is clean and very livable. They only have one elevator, and it's been broken a couple of times. I think that is a problem, but they are apparently replacing it. So that is why I am not giving them a five.

We visited Chateau de Boise. It seemed nice. The staff seemed friendly. We had the administrator spent time with us. We had a meal there, and it was good. They have nice rooms. I like the area too. It was backed off the street, and there were trees around there. The facility was nice. It was active and very independent. They have quite a bit of activities listed on the calendar.

I visited this facility

Chateau de Boise felt like there was a little bit more that the residents had to do, like they had to do their own laundry. They didn't have nurses that actually live there in the facility that would help you. I think it was only independent living. There was a vague smell of urine that kind of turned me off, and I don't know if it's just maybe because it's an older facility or because the residents had to do their own laundry, but that kind of turned me off. When I walked in there were some residents in front of the TV, and I think they were doing some sort of exercise. I also remember seeing residents playing bingo. I wasn't super impressed with the calendar of activities, and nothing really popped out at me that I can say "that sounds cool" about.

My brother is in Chateau. They have more activities than anybody can keep up with. That was one thing that I thought was pretty cool when I went up there. The rooms were very clean, and the grounds were well kept. He wasn't able to handle his own medications. That was a problem for a little while, and I think they got it straightened out. I think that they were really hospitable: they allowed me to stay in a guest room for 2 nights. They were really friendly and nice to me, and able to put me up, so I didn't have to go find a hotel. I thought the meals were extraordinary. There was an actual menu, and to me, it was a big deal. The other thing is they have accommodations for people who want to keep their pet. Other people live there who take their dogs out and walk them around the grounds. There are some rooms that have a door outdoors to a patio, so the person can take their dog outside without marching him through the hallways. Last time I talked to him, my brother sounded very happy about it.

Chateau de Boise is a nice place. I saw several rooms there; they have studios and one bedroom apartments available. They accept dogs. I had lunch there three times now. They invited me Sunday to have lunch, and they are very friendly. They have programs and would take people on shuttles or bring in entertainment. They have 300 facilities all over the United States. You have the option of going a week at a time to another facility at no extra cost. The room set up for that option was a really nicely furnished studio apartment.
