With its sunny climate and seemingly limitless recreational opportunities, plus a location that puts some of the Sunshine State’s top attractions within easy driving distance, there’s little wonder that this area has long been a haven for people in their golden years.

But if you’re on a budget, like many people of retirement age these days, you may worry that a home in a community that’s gated, attractively landscaped, and outfitted with amenities like a clubhouse, pool, and fitness center is beyond your financial reach – especially in a coveted location like Daytona Beach, FL. That’s why you need to take a close look at Bear Creek.

This gated community of high-quality manufactured homes occupies 100 picturesque acres under the shade of oaks and palms in a secluded area of Ormond Beach, just outside Daytona. It boasts comfortable, attractive homes with carports or garages on well-tended streets, much the same as any gated community in the state. Best of all, though, are the amenities.

A Community That’s Truly for Active Adults

We have three clubhouse-and-pool complexes, each with a different theme so that we can offer plenty of activities to suit every interest. For example, one clubhouse resembles a rustic lodge and features a lounge with a fireplace and a spacious porch lined with rocking chairs—perfect for a cozy chat or just a little quiet relaxation time. Another clubhouse includes a fitness center and aerobics room, and still another has a banquet hall and tiki hut that are perfect for entertaining crowds large and small.

Our wealth of amenities translates into lots of opportunities for our residents to get to know one another and spend time having fun. In fact, there’s no end to the number of classes and club meetings that residents organize at the facilities inside our gated community. Here are only a few of the ways you can spend time if you move to Bear Creek:

  • Meet with the Material Girls, a quilting and sewing group, in Clubhouse 3
  • Take a tap dancing class in Clubhouse 2
  • Try your hand at pickleball in an organized event on one of the community’s lighted courts
  • Sample your neighbor’s cooking at a community-wide potluck dinner in Clubhouse 2
  • Participate in water aerobics or take a painting class at the Bear Creek Lodge (Clubhouse 1)

An Affordable Active Adult Lifestyle

If you’re like many older adults today, you may be worried that this enviable lifestyle will stretch your retirement budget too thin. But Bear Creek makes retirement living in a well-appointed active adult community affordable for many seniors on tight budgets. How? By offering well-maintained manufactured homes for sale, including many with the same luxury features found in upscale site-built homes. Then, when you pay a low monthly home site lease fee, you’ll have daily access to Bear Creek’s on-site amenities and community activities. In addition, you’ll receive lawn mowing services along with daily access to the clubhouses and the peace of mind that comes with living in a gated community. And you’ll be only a few minutes’ drive from the lovely beaches, international speedway, and shopping and dining destinations that have made Daytona Beach famous. It’s the Bear Creek recipe for making an active Florida lifestyle affordable!
