The Lakes is quietly nestled in the country, just a little over a mile from Florida’s quaint little New England style town of Mount Dora. This is one of the finest adult communities anywhere. The City of Mount Dora is recognized nationally as one of the” Best Small Towns in America”.  It is part of what’s known as the Golden Triangle. One of the three quaintest small towns in the state, along with both the cities of Eustis, and Tavares.  All three are lakefront and part of the largest chain of lakes in this state, the Harris Chain. The Lakes itself is comprised of a finger-lake system that is designed like a golf course meandering throughout the entire community with many of the homesites on water. This is one of the few communities where the homes are built to stringent Energy Star standards.

 The clubhouse is truly amazing; it is an island clubhouse with fabulous water views surrounded by both the lake and an exercise trail.  It has a very large free-form pool complete with a lap feature, and a hot tub. The clubhouse is loaded with top notch features: a reading room with computers, library, workout gym, card room, art and craft center, plus it even has a billiard hall. In addition, there is a huge grand ballroom with soundstage for entertainment, meetings, full commercial kitchen, and a dance floor for all those special events and parties.

Started by Pringle Development, it now has a second builder available by the name of Medallion Homes.  Pringle was noted for their quality and craftsmanship using the best materials, and Medallion has followed that same plan here.

This area has become a bedroom community of Orlando with just a short 30-40-minute commute to the metropolitan area where all the major theme parks are. It’s also not far from either coast; Daytona, and Cape Canaveral, with many state parks and springs close by. This area is additionally known for waterfront and outside dining, boating, fishing, shopping, shows, concerts and events. The City of Mount Dora is itself a tourist destination. Known as “the City of Festivals”, it hosts many events throughout the year. Their largest event is the Mount Dora Art Festival; one of the largest art festivals in the nation.  Also, it just may be the best Christmas decorated city in Florida. It is a waterfront city and boasts the historic Lakeside Inn, and many B&B’s.  With one of the largest flea markets in the country, it is complete with car and guitar shows, civil war re-enactments, special engagements, along with a complete antique mall. There’s never a lack of fun things to do.   

The Orlando and Sanford airports are just a little under an hour away.  In addition, Mount Dora just happens to be blessed to be close to some of the best medical facilities anywhere.
