              Lake Ashton is one of central Florida's premier over 55 communities. Whether you are interested in crafts or tennis, bible study or ballroom dancing you will find something that will suit you. Our tenants are welcomed into the Lake Ashton community and you can join in on as many activities as you wish.

              There is a heated outdoor pool, also an indoor pool and both have hot tubs nearby. The clubhouse and the Health and Fitness center both have fitness rooms with a wide variety of equipment. There are daily exercise classes in the HFC ranging from stretching to cardio workouts to chair exercise (don't scoff, it can be challenging!) to yoga and zumba. Other sports include pickleball, tennis, bocce, ping pong, basketball, and racquetball, and the list goes on.

              Our beautiful clubhouse has a library, card and craft rooms, a billiard room, large banquet/dance area, a four star restaurant, and a bowling alley. There are movies shown weekly in the cinema.

              Although you will find your days very full in Lake Ashton, the surrounding towns offer much to see and do as well. Winter Haven still has much of 'old Florida' to share with you. It has a charming town center with restaurants and shops and a new playground in case you have any younger visitors. There are the usual chain restaurants nearby, but we encourage you to have a meal at more local spots where the food in delicious and the atmosphere is fun. Dinner at a place like Cherry Pocket, which is an old fishing camp, is not to be missed. Rustic, but the food is great and the portions hearty!

              Bok Tower in Lake Wales is a national treasure where you can stroll in the gardens and tour a home restored to its former beauty. It recalls a time when FL was not yet on the theme park radar.

              Speaking of theme parks, Disney World is just a short 45 minute drive away. Many of our Lake Ashton friends will drive to Downtown Disney for dinner and a walk around the sights since there is no admission cost for this area of the park. Of course you find both Universal Studios and Sea World in Orlando, too.

              Tampa's west coast beaches can be reached in just under an hour's drive, and Busch Gardens is another park worth visiting with its wonderful safari.

              The Lake Ashton lifestyle offers the very best of many different experiences!

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: We are home builders in CT who are 'working our way to retirement'. We found Lake Ashton on VRBO 7 years ago and have been renters every winter since then in this wonderful community. This spring we decided to become home owners in Lake Ashton and we can now offer this phenomenal life style opportunity to others by renting our new home while we are back in CT.

              Why the Owner Chose Lake Wales:
              The Lake Ashton area still has the charm of 'Old Florida' while being convenient to all the attractions that make this area of the state world renowned for vacationers.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              After spending 7 winters in Lake Ashton we know the phenomenal experience that awaits our tenants. We join many others who began their Lake Ashton experience as renters and were welcomed into this friendly community
