The benefits of pet ownership for older adults are well documented.

We’re proud to be a pet-friendly community that offers an enviable yet affordable waterfront lifestyle to active adults 55 and older. Here are a few of the many benefits that pets provide:

Exercise Incentives

Walking the dog is not just an obligation but also a pleasant way to get fresh air and exercise in the company of your furry friend. When you relocate to Lake Griffin Harbor, you’ll not only have plenty of on-site spaces to explore with your dog, but you’ll also find nature preserves and dog-friendly walking trails in the area.

Conversation Starters

Few topics make better icebreakers than cats and dogs. When you purchase one of the manufactured homes for sale at Lake Griffin Harbor and pay a low monthly home site lease fee, you’ll be able to join other pet owners to compare notes at our spacious clubhouse and observation deck overlooking the lake.

Stress Relief

Experts say animal companions provide comfort for seniors who are experiencing depression and health problems that often develop during the retirement years. Even more than that, the simple routines required in caring for a pet can give older adults a sense of purpose that distracts them from their personal anxieties. 

At Lake Griffin Harbor, we have a number of part-time residents who appreciate having a pet-friendly 55+ community where they can spend time with their pets instead of paying for a boarding facility or pet sitter.
