Reaching the shores of Lake Minnehaha, you won’t believe that you’re near Orlando. The rolling hills of Clermont are reminiscent of another state. Among the rolling hills of Clermont, on the shores of beautiful Lake Minnehaha, lies Cypress Cove Marina. Cypress Cove Marina is one of the last remaining freshwater marinas in Central Florida. Located on the Clermont Chain of Lakes, Cypress Cove Marina remains a staple part of “Original Clermont”. Many families from around Central Florida spent countless hours on the beach here, gassing up, and launching off the boat ramp for a day on the Clermont Chain of Lakes. Some of these families still dock their boat at the marina to this day.
Recent news has it that the Cypress Cove Marina is available on the real estate market. We spoke with the owner of the marina Jon Jones. Jon has owned the marina since 1986. Jon states that he isn’t sure whether a new owner would want to keep Cypress Cove as a marina, or develop the land otherwise. “It’s prime real estate in Central Florida” states Jon. “We’ve had many wonderful memories here, but now it’s time for a new owner to take over. It will be interesting to see what they decide to do with the outstanding waterfront location.” For inquiries into purchasing the property, Jon may be reached at 352-406-6001, or you can also check out CypressCoveMarina.com.
Certainly, Cypress Cove Marina is on prime real estate. Considering this, it is marvel that Cypress Cove still remains a marina to this day. As Clermont continues to boom, it remains to be seen whether or not the land will be purchased for the prime location, and turned into another development. Either way, we are thankful for the memories created at this treasure of Central Florida.
