Venice Florida is growing in both population and popularity. The beauty and old-fashioned atmosphere of the quaint city has drawn thousands of “snow bunnies” and year around residents to the Gulf Coast haven. Due to the influx of new residents, retirement communities are enhancing their offerings, and adding space for the newest group of Florida senior citizens. Some of the retirement communities are available for year around living, while others are geared to winter month hibernation only.
The Horse and Chaise Inn is located inside Venice’s historic district. This community is smaller than some, but features a myriad of activities, luxury, and a close proximity to the ocean. Residents can choose from nine historically themed rooms, each spacious and comfortable. Residents of the Horse & Chaise Inn are also treated to a full course breakfast daily. A 24-hour snack bar and walking distance to downtown are also reasons why the Horse and Chaise Inn is so popular with visitors. For additional information click onto www.horseandchaiseinn.com
