Welcome to Sweetgrass


Sweetgrass is modern, bright and spacious with an intimate cottage layout located in Slave Lake, AB. We enjoy a fun, loving atmosphere, with music playing in the cottages and lots of laughter. Our grounds are lovely, with a beautifully trimmed lawn, shrubs, and raised flower beds. A pathway and small bridge connect Sweetgrass with Vanderwell Lodge next door, and visitors are always welcome. Our beautiful two-storey community opened in summer 2015.

We are dedicated to promoting maximum independence, choice, and dignity for each resident and encourage the involvement of family, neighbours and friends.


Let us welcome you home
