Plan Your Next Staycation at Verandah

The Danes call it ‘hygge’ some call it a stay-cation, but whatever defines the feeling of home, we can all agree that “staying in” is the new “going out” – or at least that’s how the residents of Verandah see it. An active adult community nestled up against Southwest Florida’s Orange River just fifteen minutes from Fort Myers, Verandah by Kolter can be summed up in two words – all-inclusive. Even the poshest resort can’t match the convenience of having it all at your fingertips whether it’s water sports, going out to lunch or meeting friends on an award-winning 36-hole golf course. Nightlife and spin classes? It’s all on-site.

Planned communities like Verandah focus on building not just beautiful homes, but a lifestyle that nurtures the health and social vitality of residents. With all the sports activities, fitness classes and outdoor recreation offered, staying active has never been this fun. River Village, otherwise known as the neighborhood retreat, goes from cardio to cocktails on the dance floor with everything from on-trend spin classes to spa services to innovations like Har-Tru tennis courts featuring unique clay surfaces that are both joint friendly and slow the ball for precise game-play. Outdoorsy types can grab a paddle and a kayak and head out to the Orange River boat launch, or experience what it feels like to drive it like an A-Lister with members only tee times at Old Orange or Whispering Oak golf courses- both rated in the top 25 by Golf Advisor, and voted #1 by Veranda’s golf pros.

Chickahominy Falls, Greater Richmond’s first 55+ agri-community, held its Founders’ Day drawing on July 12, 2018. Because there were so many interested buyers and few opening home sites initially for sale, a drawing was required. This was the first opportunity for prospective buyers to purchase in the opening phase of Chickahominy Falls and 21 lucky buyers became the Founding Homeowners at Chickahominy Falls.

“The response to Chickahominy Falls has been overwhelmingly positive since day one,” said Roger Glover, principal in The Crescent Group (TCD), developer of Chickahominy Falls. “Our vision of healthy living in a farm-inspired community with opportunities for work and play has really struck a chord with 55+ homebuyers. People are ready for more than the typical amenity package, and ready to join us in pioneering a new kind of active adult community. I don’t know if 21 sales in one hour, is a record in Richmond, but it certainly proves our region is yearning for what we providing at Chickahominy Falls.”
