A Resort-Style Alternative to Independent Living Homes in Lakeland, FL
If you’re thinking of retiring to Central Florida to enjoy loads of fun in the sun without all the headaches of intensive home maintenance, you may be considering the housing options billed as “independent living homes.” But how does “independent living home” compare to an “active lifestyle community”? With so many housing options for adults 55 and older, the terms can be confusing.
At Cypress Lakes® in Lakeland, Florida, the residents of our active adult lifestyle community enjoy so much more than independent living—they live in attractive manufactured homes with picturesque views of towering cypress trees and lakes teeming with wildlife. When they tire of strolling or biking around our 1,000-acre piece of paradise, they can head over to our huge community clubhouse, which is always bustling with activity. Without leaving our gated community, they can enjoy:
- A drink or a meal at our full-service restaurant and tavern
- A workout at our 5,000-square-foot fitness center
- A swim in one of our two heated pools
- Exercise, art, and cooking classes available in our clubhouse
Moreover, Cypress Lakes® is also home to two award-winning golf courses and all the frills of a golfing community. Our residents are eligible for membership in our Big Cypress Golf Club, which will entitle them to enjoy tournament play and other activities that you’ll be hard-pressed to find at any Lakeland independent living homes.
Low-Maintenance Housing at an Affordable Price
If daily resort-style living sounds grand, but you’re still thinking that buying a standalone home in a neighborhood setting will translate into oodles of home maintenance expenses, stop worrying. Our homes are designed to be energy efficient and require little upkeep, and your low monthly home site lease payment will include lawn mowing as well as give you access to our clubhouse amenities. Independent living homes, on the other hand, typically consist of apartment-style quarters with access to few on-site amenities, and they can be quite pricey. Our new and preowned manufactured homes for sale offer all the safety and comfort of a site-built home at significantly lower prices.
