Lake Ashton Reviews (4)

Average Rating for this Community

Love, Love, Love Lake Ashton! My husband and I retired from Palm Beach County to beautiful Lake Ashton in 2008. This community has wonderful amenities, activities and entertainment. The warm and friendly people that live there make it the "BEST" 55+ Community in Florida. It is 60 miles south west of Orlando and 60 miles east of Tampa, so airports, high end stores and many, many restaurants are close by., Living here is like being at a resort everyday. It is our "little piece of Paradise." Come for a visit and you will fall in love with Lake Ashton, too!


Love it here, so much to do, absolutely beautiful, people are very friendly. Movie theater, bowling, tennis, 2 pools, one inside and one outdoor, shuffle board, great shows, numerous clubs, etc. etc. etc. Great place to live!


I am a resident of Lake Ashton but haven't moved to FL. I will be working for a few more years here in DE but I wanted to tell you that Lake Ashton has been wonderful so far. I closed on June 27th and within an hour I had met four neighbors who stopped by to welcome us...that's how nice they are. We are really looking forward to moving and enjoying the whole experience of Lake Ashton, instead of just one week a quarter.


We've been enjoying everything about Lake Ashton since moving in about a year ago. I have tried out lots of the clubs like painting, dancing, cards, camera club, tennis ... lots of different things I've never tried before. It's been a blast trying new things and meeting so many nice people.

I am enjoying finally having time to join my husband on the golf course and have even taken some lessons. We also like that the community has some unique features you don't find many other places like a few bowling lanes, RV storage, racquetball and the massage room ... ahhh, the massages are great! We highly recommend Lake Ashton to all our friends!
