Resident Testimonies – Reviews

Don’t take our word about how wonderful living is here at Waterman Village. Read what our residents have to say about it.

Jack and Valerie Enard

We did much online research and physical looking at retirement communities. We had lived in Orlando for 21 years and enjoyed spending time in Mount Dora. We both had lived in small towns in Pennsylvania, and we came to love the atmosphere of Mount Dora.  We wanted to make a move while we’re still young and able to live independently.  The activities here are many and suit us well. We have no children or family so we feel very comfortable knowing progressive care is available should one of us need it.  The community is top notch in all departments. After living here for two years, the residents are like family.”

“We recently moved into Waterman Village after a 2-year wait, and it has already been well worth the wait! We searched for over a year; and after visiting many places, we decided on Waterman as our future permanent home. What brought us here is the friendliness of the staff, the tree-lined neighborhood atmosphere, the professionally-run community, the many amenities, and the fact that we can get part of the entrance fee back. So happy we chose Waterman! Thank you Lord and thank you Waterman Village”.

“We were living in a 55+ community just outside Leesburg. The more we talked about it, the more we liked the idea of a simpler life, a maintenance-free home, having care nearby if needed, the ability to travel with greater ease, and peace of mind for our children. And so our search began, and we prayed for guidance.“The more we looked, the more Waterman felt like home to us. Parking was important, as was the house – both seemed to suit our needs. And of course,Mount Dora was a draw as well. Our children are scattered across the country. They were surprised, supportive and delighted for us when they learned of our decision to make ‘the big move.’“We’re going into our third month, loving our home, our front porch, and our neighbors. Our grateful prayer goes on…Bless you, Waterman Village…Thank you, God!

In 2002, I looked at a new Manor. It overlooked the Nature Preserve and was rested on the Woodbury Avenue unit below.  I liked what I saw, committed, and moved in near the end of the year.  It was a decision that I have never regretted.  For almost 17 years, I have lived in a Premier retirement community.  Among the advantages: everything on one floor, an excellent Lodge dining room, plus a casual Deli and an upscale Bistro with a top manager.  A Wellness Center, nicely equipped and a walking trail.  The landscaping is outstanding – always being maintained.  Nearby are a drug and grocery store, as well as a bank.  Well cared for sedans drive you to medical services.  I enjoy moving about in my golf cart, have a garage for it and my car and best of all, I can close the door behind me and go where I choose on the campus with a feeling of complete safety.  What else could I want!
