The NEW Lakeside at Waterman Village Retirement Community



Lakeside is Waterman Village’s second retirement community. Lakeside opened in 2022 and is located directly across the street from The Oaks at Waterman Village. Lakeside and The Oaks are connected by a bridge over Donnelly Street.  It’s our mini ‘The Villages’ Spanish Springs bridge. Lakeside offers independent living apartments AND duplex homes, whereas The Oaks only offers duplex homes.

Lakeside residents do pay a monthly service fee and a ‘buy-in’ fee, which we call a ‘life-lease’ fee. Buy-in/life-lease fees options are available with 85, 80, 75, 50, and 0% refund options.

Lakeside is an ideal choice for those who already possess long-term care insurance.

Since most residence types have waiting lists, we strongly encourage people to plan ahead by joining our ‘In-The-Wings’ club.

Having all of Waterman Village’s facilities and services on one campus, best enables our residents to remain both independent and active longer throughout life, in comparison to if they remained in their own home outside of Waterman Village.


When you inquire or visit, you’ll enjoy a calm, friendly, NO pressure environment. We frequently hear from visitors to Waterman Village express to us about the high/uncomfortable level of pressure they experienced when visiting other retirement communities.  They always say how refreshing it is to work with Waterman Village.  

Lakeside has a gatehouse that is staffed 24/7

Waterman Village has FOUR security staff on duty at all times.

The Waterman Village information center is open Monday – Friday from 8:00 am – 4:30 pm and evenings and weekends by appointment. Our Waterman Village independent living information center specialists are Cheryl, Ingrid, Abe, Alondra, and Coleen. They are all eager to help you and share with you more information about the Waterman Village mission and ministry since 1989.
