A Water Lover’s Paradise among Age 55 Communities in Central Florida: Lake Griffin Harbor

View from the lake of a large marina in front of the red-tile roof clubhouse at Lake Griffin HarborIf you’re looking at communities for ages 55 and up with waterfront access, you’ve no doubt noticed that you usually pay a premium for that kind of living, even in sunny Central Florida, where lakes and rivers abound.

Affordable waterfront communities are hard to find. And what’s even more scarce? A Florida retirement community with a marina. In fact, you may be starting to think your hard-earned retirement savings won’t stretch far enough to accommodate the active lifestyle you’ve been hoping to enjoy, with resort-style amenities and the opportunity to get out on the open water for boating and fishing trips whenever you want.

If so, then you haven’t discovered Lake Griffin Harbor in Leesburg, a gem among communities designed for adults 55 and older because it’s perched on the edge of one of the most beautiful lakes in Central Florida. What’s more, if you’re a boat owner who would like to have your watercraft at the ready whenever you have the urge to seek an aquatic adventure, you’ll hit the jackpot when you relocate to Lake Griffin Harbor: Our retirement community has a 55-slip marina.

Catering to Water Lovers, Though We Don’t Stop There

Lake Griffin Harbor is a gated retirement community of manufactured homes that’s operated by Blair Group, a professional management company that takes pride in making an active Florida lifestyle affordable for those 55 and older. Our 55+ community’s waterfront location on 9,400-acre Lake Griffin is a tremendous attraction, in and of itself. And we help our residents get easy access to this aquatic paradise by providing a boat ramp and fishing pier, along with a marina that allows boat owners in our retirement community to launch straight into the water with no need to haul it by trailer.

However, we don’t just rely on sparkling Lake Griffin to keep our residents occupied. Our community is also home to a spacious clubhouse and large, heated pool overlooking the lake. When you buy one of our well-maintained manufactured homes, you’ll likely pay far less than you would for a site-built home in a similar 55+ community on the water. Then, for a low monthly home site lease payment, you can enjoy unlimited use of the clubhouse amenities, including:

  • A fitness center and outdoor facilities for games of bocce ball, shuffleboard, and horseshoes
  • A banquet hall with a dance floor and performance stage
  • A bingo hall, billiards room, and other spaces for informal get-togethers

Lake Griffin Harbor also boasts dry boat and RV storage area, making it one of the most accommodating communities for residents 55 and older who are on the go.

As a bonus, our Central Florida location makes it easy to find world-class opportunities for sightseeing and enjoying sports and performing arts events at metro areas a short drive away.
