Trilogy at Ocala Preserve Introduces Oak House

Ready To Join The VIP Club?

How much do we love those vacations where spa days, great food, and plenty of play and leisure are right at our fingertips? Luckily if you’re 55 or better, that five-star resort experience doesn’t have to be a memory in a scrapbook because Trilogy at Ocala Preserve is the luxury getaway you won’t be leaving behind. This expansive Central Florida community proves that life can be fun, and games with the debut of its newest club, Oak House. The stately 15,000 square foot clubhouse is already getting rave reviews for its outstanding service, and modern architectural design, not to mention the endless array of A-Lister amenities.

This upscale, age-restricted community is nestled in the lush green hills of Ocala, so of course, every view from Oak House whether you’re enjoying cocktails, playing pool, or swimming laps is pretty spectacular. The concept behind this kind of all-inclusive community is creating the perfect trifecta of social engagement, wellness, and pleasure without ever leaving the comfort of home, and with Oak House at the center of it all why would anyone want to? The club has a timeless, contemporary design that makes it easy to get right in and discover what all the buzz is about. If you’ve ever imagined what the perfect day would look like, Oak House is a great place to start. From getting an endorphin-boosting workout at Afterburn, and pampering yourself with a massage at Alvea Spa, to savoring culinary delights at the Salted Brick, or hosting a private party at the Chef’s Table, the only way cap off all this indulgence is with a sunset on Lakeview Veranda sipping a glass of wine while surrounded by great friends.

Venice, Florida: The Gulf City With Old World Charm

Enveloped by balmy Mexican Gulf breezes, this Southwest Florida oasis combines Mediterranean ambiance with an island getaway to Bermuda. Voted one of the top cities to retire by Forbes, Venice is a pedestrian-friendly, warm weather paradise where everything from shopping the farmers market to surfing can be enjoyed all year long. Home to more than a dozen active adult communities including Island Walk at West Village, and Plantation Golf and Country Club, Venice offers retirees and empty nesters a wide range of beautiful homes, and an all-inclusive lifestyle that snowbirds will want to stick around for.

With 30 miles of bike trails, public tennis courts, and beautiful parks including Centennial Park, and the Venetian Waterway Park which runs along the Intracoastal Waterway, it’s no wonder the majority of Venice’s sunblock toting fitness gurus are 55 or better. Thanks to temperatures that rarely dip below 70 degrees, Golf is played 365 days a year at some of the area’s top-rated courses also featured by Golf Advisor, from the Venetian Golf and River Club to the Lake Venice Public Golf Club.
