3 Beautiful Mobile Home Communities That Have It All

It’s amazing to see how far mobile home communities have come through the years. Yes, there is still a stigma associated with mobile home living, but as these 3 beautiful mobile home parks prove, that stigma is definitely beginning to fade as more of these all-inclusive resort-like communities pop up.

Vineyard Valley

Our first community, Vineyard Valley is located in the Napa Valley area of California. Boasting over 44 acres of landscaped park to walk through, a lagoon, putting green and playing courts for bocce ball, this senior community offers everything a senior needs to enjoy an active lifestyle.

Related: A few months ago, we shared how mobile home communities were changing in California with parks like the Palm Canyon Mobile Club.

Montauk Shores

Next up, we have Montauk Shores located in New York. It was actually the first mobile home park in the state of New York, established back in 1976. There is a combined total of 199 sites in the park, with 152 owned and 47 leased spaces.

The biggest draw to living in Montauk Shores would be the 1000′ of oceanfront which allows easy access to surf fishing, swimming or just relaxing on the beach. The amenities also include a professional bar, library, clubhouse, large area for social gatherings that include a full commercial kitchen, as well as many activities geared toward children.

An all-age community, there is a combination of weekend getaway residences and full-time residents. It is considered to be the area’s best kept secret and we can definitely see why.

De Anza Santa Cruz

Our 3rd community, De Anza Santa Cruz, and is also located in California. Located on the bluffs of Monterey Bay, this 55+ community is a mix of waterfront and interior lots offers plenty to keep seniors entertained. A fitness center, library, clubhouse, and hot tubs are just a few of the amenities residents can enjoy.

These are just a few examples of how mobile home communities are changing to fit the needs of seniors, families, and working adults. Unfortunately, the lot rent for these communities wasn’t readily available. However, residents have accessibility to many amenities that haven’t been available in the past as well as the added security of gated communities.

Keep in mind, there is a lot to consider when thinking about moving into a community, whether it be a senior living one or an all-age one. But one thing is for sure, mobile home communities are evolving!
