As we babyboomers enter retirement age, a large number of individuals are making choices of a location to spend their “golden years”. Some people plan to remain in the same community in which they have settled and raised their families. Many people hope to relocate to a warmer climate for their post-career years. Lake Oconee is a good choice for a retirement home. A unique retirement community lifestyle is offered in what is called a 55+ community, one which offers homes with less size and upkeep, coupled with easy opportunities for activities and new friendships. The choice of a 55+ community in the Lake Oconee area is Del Webb at Lake Oconee. This type of community has been described as “trading extra space for carefree living”. The “carefree” part is due to the fact that one fee per month takes care of lawn care, club dues, and POA fees. Many locals have moved to this community from the larger, single family gated communities, and love the “lock and leave” aspect of Del Webb when the urge comes to travel. Located only 75 miles east of Atlanta, Del Webb at Lake Oconee is the only Del Webb community with direct lake access. The community boat ramp affords lake access to residents, and a choice of day docks for temporary use. A 21,000 square-foot recreation center includes indoor resources such as pool, ballroom, fitness center, billiards room, arts and crafts room, and game rooms.
In addition, there are exciting outdoor amenities such as tennis pavilion with clay courts, bocce courts, croquet and pickle ball courts. Of course, there is a luxurious outdoor pool, and a beautiful lakeside pavilion for community gatherings.
All this comes with a Lifestyle Director who can advise you of activities, clubs, trips and classes to share with other like-minded residents. You can be as busy as you like, it’s up to you! Del Webb community sits on acres of beautifully landscaped hills, many acres left in the natural state, in the heart of the Lake Oconee Area. Just outside the gates there is easy access to restaurants, golf, and entertainment.
