The NEW Lakeside at Waterman Village – NOW ACCEPTING RESERVATIONS

During the COVID-19 time, we’re still available to take your calls and unit reservations. There are a large number of people who are planning to visit and reserve an available Lakeside residence, once the state of Florida rescinds its travel restrictions.  But, you can be ‘ahead of the curve’ and reserve an available residence NOW, with a fully refundable deposit, and then come and meet with us in a few weeks.

We’ve had people who’ve made reservations at other/similar communities in Central Florida, only to change their reservation to Lakeside at Waterman Village, once they’ve discovered what Waterman Village and Mount Dora were all about. We work with those who do this, in assisting them with any cancellation fees that they might incur.

You can join a virtual presentation on Tuesdays at 10 or Thursdays at 2 as stated above, you can speak with us by phone or video call such as Facebook, FaceTime, Skype, GOOGLE Duo, Zoom, WebEx, or any other platform that you might already be familiar with.  Just call Ingrid to make arrangements at (352) 385-1120.

Only THREE Garden Duplex Homes remain and the 1 and 2 bedroom Apartment Homes are very popular as well.  We started informing the general public about Lakeside just last Fall, and there are just under 100 residences already reserved.

Now is the best time to make plans to secure your future independence and best maintain your active life-style!

Lakeside residents will have access to all the services and amenities at Waterman Village’s existing community, The Oaks.

When people compare all things: tradition, organizational mission and ownership, proximity to a quality hospital, location near important/ necessary services, town located in, refund options, campus security, home designs, dining, campus facilities & services, activity opportunities, and friendly/home-like environment, they often discover why Waterman Village is their best overall choice, when researching communities that offer independent living, assisted living, and health care facilities all on one site.

Waterman Village and Lakeside are located less than one mile or within walking/golf cart distance to: physicians, dentists, an eye clinic, churches, fire/ambulance, pharmacies, shopping, recreational/cultural activities, a library, insurance agencies, a real estate agency, a travel agency, banks, auto dealers/repair places, hardware stores, restaurants, drug stores, a health food store, a lab, and a golf course.

Discover why many consider Waterman Village to be Florida’s TOTAL’ retirement living campus.

We reside at Waterman Village.  We love it and want to spend the rest of our lives here.  The community has so much to offer–beautiful landscaping and flowers from the time you drive through the impressive entrance gates and the main avenue with huge old oak trees.    The Christmas lights and decorations each December are fantastic. Waterman offers a great variety of activities which can keep you occupied all day long if you so desire. There is a  wellness Center with lots of exercise equipment under professional supervision. The  homes and streets are kept in  first class condition at all times and we feel safe and protected in a crime free environment.  The food is superb and lots of it.  The staff and personnel in all departments are extremely kind and helpful.  What impresses us most is the excellent management of Waterman Village, who constantly strive to do the very best job for the good of the residents.
