Country Retreat is a resident owned cooperative (with some mobile homes for sale on rented/leased lots) and is operated by the Country Retreat Mobile Homeowners’ Assn., Inc., of Retired Citizens and Young Families. It is a quiet community, away from the interstate, located on Upper Manatee River Road in Bradenton, Florida. It is conveniently located 45 miles from the Tampa International Airport and 25 miles from the Sarasota Airport.
The Bradenton – Sarasota area offers a wide range of dining and shopping options without the congestion of larger communities. Low cost maintenance, close proximity to Christian Retreat Family Church and quality area schools are further reasons to live at Country Retreat.
Situated on almost 14 acres of prime real estate surrounded by open country and beautiful home developments, Country Retreat may be one of the most unique park communities in all of Florida. With its quiet streets for easy walking, well-maintained, crystal clear heated swimming pool and backdoor access to the Manatee River which flows to the Bay and out to the Gulf of Mexico, Country Retreat is truly a paradise.
Park amenities include a heated swimming pool, a horseshoe court, a pair of beach volleyball courts, tennis court and an outdoor basketball court. Anglers will find easy access to the bank of the Manatee River. Christian Retreat Family Church offers a wide variety of activities for participants of all ages.
