If you are getting older, you need to start thinking about the best place to retire for yourself and your spouse. CRF Communities has over 30 years of experience designing and developing Florida retirement communities for folks who want to stay active and really enjoy their retirement. That includes communities like Lake Ashton!
Some Important Questions to Ask Yourself About Retirement
The best place to retire is always personal, so let’s start by narrowing down the parameters and focusing in on what YOU really want. If you are happy in your current home and can see no down side to staying there, then that pretty much answers the question – but if your house is too big and takes too much upkeep, and your friends and family have all moved away, then a fresh start is just the thing!
Many of the lists of places to retire include foreign countries and islands, so the first question is: do you want to stay within the continental United States? Many also include places that are regularly snowbound in the winter; do you really want to deal with the inconvenience and danger of snow? What activities do you enjoy? Do you own an RV? Do you prefer to live in a community of like-minded people in the same stage of life? How much house do you really want?
We Think That Lake Ashton May Be the Best Place to Retire in Florida
CRF Communities has built Lake Ashton especially to accommodate all the needs of people over 55, and as many of their wishes as possible. Our home plans are all single story for ease and safety, and include a garage and a covered-screen porch, which is a great thing in Florida and can be used almost all year round.
We have an enormous clubhouse with everything from computers to crafts, billiards to bowling, movies to meetings and so much more. Our health and fitness center has swimming, spas, racquet ball, tennis, and of course workout and weight rooms. Being right on the lake, there is a boat dock and launch ramp for fishing, sailing and water sports; and there are TWO golf courses, plus the Eagles Nest Sports Pub, and all of that is within the gated community.
There is So Much to Do in Central Florida
Just down the road is Winter Haven, a friendly town with shopping, dining, and other amusements. If you like the beach, it is an easy drive to either coast for a day at the beach. There are lots of theme parks in nearby Orlando, and plenty of museums, theater and historical sites in Tampa and St. Augustine.
At CRF Communities we hope you will come and see for yourselves that Lake Ashton really is the best place to retire!
