We highly recommend Buttonwood Bay Resort in Sebring, Florida for people ages 50 or better. The sunsets are gorgeous, there are activities for everyone from reading a book to quilting, pickleball, tennis, bocce ball and shuffleboard, two outdoor pools, group picnics, a lunch wagon near the lake where you can get a nice lunch and socialize. Also there are weekly dances, dance lessons, woodworking, stained glass classes, cards and games, the park is pet friendly, and so much more. It is very clean and a great place to make new life long friends. Try it! You'll like it.
We came to Buttonwood Bay last winter for a short visit and ended up buying a home while we were here. The park is immaculately maintained by very friendly and helpful staff, too many amenities to list, some of the nicest people you could ask for as neighbors, spectacular sunsets, fabulous winter weather, the list of positives for this place is endless. We're just ending our second season here and still feel extremely lucky to be part of this happy community.
5.0 star rating We decided to spend the winter at Buttonwood Bay after enjoying two short stays previous winters. We are planning to reserve an RV spot for long term next winter. The park is located on Lake Josephine, and if you like to fish our go boating everything you need is here including a fish cleaning space. You can also invest in a dock if ones available, or store your boat for a reasonable rate. The sunsets over the lake can be part of your daily routine and some nights they are spectacular. The residents here are always friendly, and smiling, and enjoying getting together for the many activities that are offered. Tennis, pickleball, bocce, horseshoes, putt putt, shuffleboard,various crafts and games. Tai chi, Walk walk, Line dancing classes, water aerobics, and many more. Lunch is served in season at the Cafe on the lake. Excellent choices at a reasonable price, and with the gentle breezes off the lake, and wild life in full view a delightful place relax or socialize. The office staff is friendly and accommodating especially, Brittney. She is very knowledgeable and experienced. The manager is easy to talk to and available if you need information regarding the park. This park is a hidden treasure in central south Florida…
Rented one of the cottages, it was perfect for two, we were across from Lake Josephine, wonderful holiday. There is tons to do if you want or lay back at the one of the pools in the park and enjoy the never ending sunshine.
First time here at Buttonwood Bay and we were very happy with the site for our motor home. The whole park is exceptionally clean. We liked it so much we bought a home here! Lots of things to do, 2 pools, on Lake Josephine which is very pretty.
