We were looking for a retirement home in a 55+ community in the Leesburg, FL area. An online search produced a link to Highland Lakes. Clean, friendly, wonderful 66+ community.

HAPPY IN FL. (Resident/Homeowner)

We spent a lot of time in Okla. looking on the computer at all the 55+ communities....My husband came to Fl. and found this beautiful community...It is the most beautiful...most friendly place. I am so glad he chose...Has a breath taking entry. I have seen the others and thank God we got here. Come on down!! If
you are looking for golf...this is not the place...we have everything else..tennis...2 pools..one in and one out. The community is owned by the people who own the homes and we have a board who runs everything...financially secure!!

VT snowbird (Resident/Homeowner)

We searched and searched and found our paradise. We knew immediately Highland Lakes was going to be our new home. The wide open common areas, friendly welcoming staff in the community building, pristine landscaping, gated access, beautiful homes, this place has it all. Upscale and affordable. We loved working with Margie Smith to find our dream home. She made us feel like we belonged at Highland Lakes from the first time we spoke with her.

Come for a visit, you won't regret it!

Scott Austin

After reviewing communities in the central Florida area, and being in a smaller income bracket, I believe Highland Lakes to be my favorite option... Looking forward to seeing it in person.
