Many Who Retire to Florida Choose to Live at Cypress Lakes – Here’s Why

Retire to FloridaPeople retire to Florida for different reasons. While some are fed up with the snow and cold winter temperatures up north, others are drawn to Florida by the relatively low cost of living and the high number of interesting things to do and see. At Cypress Lakes in Lakeland, we have created a community where adults 55 and older can live out their retirement dreams in a secure, affordable setting right in the heart of the Sunshine State. Many who retire to Florida choose to buy a home at Cypress Lakes, as it is a highly welcoming 55+ community that excels at combining affordable housing with resort-style amenities and professional onsite management provided by award-winning retirement community developer Blair Group.

In fact, Cypress Lakes has long been a popular community for retirees looking to live in Florida either part time or year-round. Here are just some of our community’s most outstanding features:

Beautifully Maintained Golf Courses

Cypress Lakes is home to not one but two professionally designed, 18-hole golf courses, along with a pro shop and practice facility. Resident members of our Big Cypress Golf Club enjoy numerous perks, including preferred tee times, daily text messages about course conditions, eligibility for participation in tournaments, pro shop discounts, and more. If the ability to play golf year-round is one of the reasons you’re planning to retire to Florida, Cypress Lakes is the paradise you’ve been looking for.

Clubhouse and Amenities

Our multimillion-dollar clubhouse plays a big role in day-to-day community life. Residents meet up there to dine, exercise, and participate in a wide range of structured group activities that help turn neighbors into close friends in no time. We offer an on-site restaurant, two spacious swimming pools, tennis and pickleball courts, meeting rooms of all sizes, a 5,000-square-foot fitness center, and many more amenities. Additionally, our clubhouse hosts visiting vendors, such as a mobile veterinarian and pet groomer, which add tremendous value to the lifestyle our residents enjoy at Cypress Lakes.

Affordable Homes

Many of today’s older adults worry that their life savings won’t stretch far enough to allow them to retire to Florida as planned. But Cypress Lakes makes a Florida lifestyle affordable for many retirees on a budget. We have an excellent selection of low-cost and low-maintenance manufactured homes from leading suppliers, and many of them have the same luxury features you’d find in modern site-built homes, such as vaulted ceilings and walk-in closets. When you purchase one of these homes, you’ll enjoy safe, comfortable living but likely pay less than you would for a site-built home in a similar 55+ community. Then, for your low monthly home site lease payment, you’ll enjoy daily access to our pools, clubhouse, and game facilities. And isn’t having fun the reason you want to retire to Florida?

First-Rate Medical Facilities Nearby

Our convenient location between Tampa and Orlando means some of Florida’s leading hospitals are located within an easy driving distance, as are many of the state’s top-rated attractions, including theme parks, dinner theaters, casinos, and professional sports venues.
