Everyone knows that Florida is a wonderful place in which to retire. Mount Dora is one of those wonderful Florida towns in which to retire, as indicated by USA TODAY’s® ranking of Mount Dora as the #1 Small Town in Florida, and #4 in America, in which to retire.
Often referred to as the "New England of the South," Mount Dora offers a unique variety of cultural activities, specialty shops, dining establishments, major festivals, and recreational opportunities.
Located in the center of the state, Mount Dora is less susceptible to a direct hurricane hit, New Smyrna Beach is just over an hour's drive, and it's only 30 minutes to the I-4 / 414 junction in Maitland. More seniors, seeking an established not-for-profit full-service retirement community, in a vibrant town with a small, homey, safe feel, are choosing Waterman Village in Mount Dora, FL.
Mount Dora is a town where Waterman Village residents feel proud & excited about inviting their family members and friends to visit, and a town family & friends will likely want to visit more often.

After living here for one month, I decided the personnel in the dining room’s philosophy were “We aim to please.” I had never known of people so congenial, so service-oriented and supportive. Not only a few, but the total staff. They made every resident feel comfortable. Then I realized the personnel of Waterman Village practice the same philosophy – “We aim to please.”
