Silver Lakes Resort
Helendale, California 92342
Established Silver Lakes Resort in
Helendale, California is an Appealing Retirement Destination
Located along historic Route 66 in
San Bernardino County's Mojave Desert River Valley
is the small rural town of Helendale, which is home to Silver Lakes Resort,
a planned community that dates from the 1970s.
It has everything from modest homes to lavish custom dwellings. This community is
not age-restricted, but it offers amenities,
including a private 27-hole PGA rated golf course
designed by Ted Robinson, that are appealing to many
Silver Lakes Resort, so named for the two large man-made lakes around which the resort meanders, has single family
homes and condominiums, some of which are timeshares; square footage
amounts range from 1,200 square feet to 4,000 square
feet. Some homes are a little dated and need some
sprucing up, but others are new and come with all the latest design
features. There is no tract housing; all 3,000 homes have been
built by private parties, giving the community an eclectic
feel. Lots are still available for those who would like
to build their retirement home from scratch; these start at around
$125,000, depending on location, and many lots (and homes) have
either water views or golf course views. All homeowners here
automatically become members of the Silver Lakes Homeowners'
Association. Monthly dues cover include access to all
amenities, including unlimited golf, with no extra fees, at the
Silver Lakes Golf Course.
Silver Lakes Resort is not as polished as some newer planned communities,
age-restricted or not, but it is a pleasant place spread across 3,200
acres. The landscape is flat but green; the Mojave River flows nearby and
the San Gorgonio mountains loom in the far distance. Residents are
friendly, ride around on golf carts and enjoy a clubhouse with an Olympic-sized
pool, spa, lighted tennis courts, a fitness facility and an equestrian
area. Visit www.silverlakesassociation.com for more
There is also an onsite fire department, RV parking and 24-hour
roving security, as well as many planned activities, from exercise classes to
summer luaus on the beach. The two lakes provide opportunities for
boating, fishing, swimming and picnicking. The Inn at Silver Lakes is a
comfortable place to stay when visiting the area.
A drawback to retirement in Silver Lakes may be the summer temperatures which
can reach into the low-100s. On the plus side, winters are balmy with temperatures
in the 50s, 60s and 70s, and the area is very dry.
Silver Lakes Resort is 115 miles northeast of Los Angeles, 170 miles from Las
Vegas and 20 miles from Barstow.
