Country Retreat Park

Country Retreat is a resident-owned cooperative and is operated by the Country Retreat Mobile Homeowners' Assn., Inc., of Retired Citizens and Young Families. Ours is a quiet community, away from the interstate, located on Upper Manatee River Road in Bradenton, Florida. We are 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.  Our 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.

Stop at Fort Hamer Park to launch your boat located on Florida's Manatee River just outside Bradenton, minutes from Country Retreat. Destinations: Longboat Key, Anna Maria Island, Sarasota, Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Clearwater.

We are currently encouraging the replacement of older homes with new manufactured homes from Palm Harbor and have Co-op shares available for purchase. 

If you are interested in joinging our community or would simply like additional information, please e-mail us at [email protected].
