Don’t Settle for an Ordinary Independent Living Community—Enjoy an Affordable Active Lifestyle in Lakeland, FL

Independent Living Community Lakeland FLAre you on the hunt for an independent living community to call home when you retire? Florida has long been one of the top retirement destinations in the nation, which means there are many types of retirement communities to choose from in the Sunshine State. Would you like to continue living in a neighborhood setting, with your own home, yard, and driveway, but hardly any home maintenance chores to worry about? Do you also want to enjoy the company of neighbors from your own generation and the opportunity to participate in lots of activities right inside your community? Are you looking for a convenient Central Florida location that will allow you to visit beaches, theme parks, casinos, and other tourist destinations without having to book an extended vacation?

If you answered yes to those questions, make sure you put Cypress Lakes® in Lakeland on your list of retirement communities to consider. We offer active adults 55 and older so much more than a simple independent living community—we offer an affordable Florida lifestyle! Consider these features:

Resort-Style Amenities

Cypress Lakes® is a gated community of well-maintained manufactured homes that’s nestled in a gorgeous natural landscape, which is enhanced by the sweeping green vistas created by our two professionally designed golf courses. The heartbeat of this community is its multimillion-dollar clubhouse complex, which is home to swimming pools, game facilities, and many more resort-style amenities designed to keep you active and socially engaged with your neighbors. We also have an activities director on staff and a huge number of clubs and sports leagues that offer never-ending opportunities to stay active and have fun.

Golf Club Membership Opportunity

Whether you’re a long-time golfer or someone who’s planning to take up the sport in retirement, you’ll find your slice of heaven at Cypress Lakes®. Our Big Cypress Golf Club offers the total golfing experience, including:

  • Golf courses designed to provide challenges for beginning players and pros alike
  • Training facilities that encompass a driving range, putting green, and chipping area
  • Golfing lessons from a certified instructor
  • A pro shop that’s stocked with equipment to help you begin or improve your game
  • An on-site restaurant and tavern that provides the perfect place to unwind after a day out on the links
  • Opportunities for friendly competition in member-only tournaments and special events

Neighborhood Setting

Our attractive manufactured homes—many with luxury features like vaulted ceilings—are designed to require minimal maintenance. They typically cost less than site-built homes in similar independent living communities, so you’ll be able to devote more of your resources to having fun! Plus, when you purchase a home at Cypress Lakes® and pay a low monthly home site lease fee, you’ll receive lawn mowing services, which means you’ll have more time to spend with your friends and neighbors at the clubhouse or on group sightseeing trips. We also have a number of vendors, including a mobile veterinary clinic and produce market, that regularly visit our community, thus making it extremely convenient to purchase many products and services.

Close Proximity to Everything You Want—and Need

Located between two of Central Florida’s most popular metro areas—Tampa and Orlando—Cypress Lakes® puts theme parks, dinner theaters, and boating and fishing experiences within easy reach of our residents. Moreover, there are first-rate medical facilities only minutes away by car, and some of the world’s most highly respected medical research centers are a short distance away. Plus, when wanderlust strikes, you’ll have your choice of international airports from which to launch your globe-trotting adventures, and there are also passenger train stations a short drive away.
