We've been thinking about the day we (can) retire, though it's down the road a bit, and where we'd like to put down roots. What area of California, if we stay here? Or, what other state, if we head out? We go through Google's "Best Places To Retire" and every place, to me, at least, looks perfect: quaint, quiet, calming, charming. Places where you'd like to take morning walks and evening strolls.
One place we stumbled across while searching is Plantation By The Lake in Calismesa CA. It's near Yucaipa CA, a sweet town and oh-so-close to Oak Glen, one of my favorite places to go to for apple pie!
Plantation by The Lake is a senior (yep, senior) community (55 years and over) of manufactured homes (that look like regular, residential homes to me) sitting on beautiful, roomy lots. This community offers so many amenities: Club house, rec room, gym, swimming pool/s, spa/s, library, and more. They also have many events & activities going all the time, that you'd never be bored. Unless you wanted to be bored, that is. RV storage, too.
You purchase the home and pay lot space. Prices vary depending on the location, as there are four stages, #four is taking place now.
Well, that's my retirement spot I'm sharing today. Enjoy.
