There’s More to Some Florida Retirement Communities than Sunny Weather & Theme Parks

But what about you? What are you looking for in a place to spend your golden years?

One of the great things about Florida for retirees is its bountiful number of lakes and rivers and the many boating, fishing, and bird-watching opportunities those waterways provide. That’s why waterfront retirement communities are among the most sought-after places to live in the Sunshine State. But aren’t the waterfront retirement communities a bit pricey? Are you worried that your nest egg won’t last very long if you choose to live in a community on the water’s edge? Will you have to do without the active lifestyle amenities offered by resort-style retirement communities?

An Affordable Waterfront Retirement Community in Central Florida

If your retirement dreams include endless opportunities for aquatic adventure, you’ll definitely want to take a close look at Lake Griffin Harbor in Leesburg. We’re a professionally managed, gated community of well-maintained manufactured homes for residents 55 and older that’s nestled on the shores of Lake Griffin, one of the most beautiful lakes in the state.

We make sure our residents have ample access to everything that lakefront living can offer by providing a 55-slip marina, a boat launch, a fishing pier, and an observation deck. But we also don’t stint on the other kinds of amenities that make retirement communities the best places for people to settle in and enjoy life after leaving their career days behind. Our spacious clubhouse complex includes a:

  • Large screened and heated pool right on the waterfront
  • Well-equipped fitness center
  • Banquet hall with a stage and dance floor
  • Variety of indoor and outdoor spaces for games and get-togethers

Our on-site amenities will provide you with plenty to do on those days when the weather isn’t favorable or you just don’t feel like boating, fishing, or kayaking. More than that, though, our community clubhouse serves as a hub for social activities that include water aerobics, pool volleyball, crafts workshops, and special events.

Indeed, the real beauty of Lake Griffin Harbor is the way we make an active Florida lifestyle affordable, even in retirement. Put simply, you’ll get more of what you want most for less money at Lake Griffin Harbor than at other waterfront retirement communities. When you buy one of the manufactured homes in our beautiful community and pay a low monthly home site lease fee, you’ll be able to enjoy convenient access to the lake and our on-site resort-style amenities. You’ll also be within easy driving distance of major tourist attractions, which means that neither you nor your guests will ever want for something to do.

Moreover, Leesburg is home to beautiful parks, popular restaurants, shopping centers, medical clinics, and places of worship, which means all of your day-to-day needs can be easily met in the community just outside Lake Griffin Harbor. And, should the need arise, there are world-class hospitals located a short drive away.
