Retired couple living in Connecticut looking to move to northeastern PA for more affordable cost of living and to be closer to grandkids. Have become spoiled with maintenance-free, community style living, but don't need all the swimming pool/tennis court amenities. Are there any 55+ (not assisted living) developments in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area (but not IN either city) that anybody can recommend?

Default Golden Oaks Village

I only know of one which is Golden Oaks Village, in White Haven, Pa
Which is not all that far from Wilkes Barre, and Scranton.
Maybe SWB would know of more, but off hand that is all I can think of besides one or two down by Easton, which is not where you wanted to be.

Gosh, MollyMe your right. LOL right at my backdoor too........I forgot.
It will take him an hour to get to Scranton. But, the ride is not all that bad.
You can take 115 or hop onto the turnpike off of 940. Plus 715 to 380 ...quite a few ways there.
Robinwood is for 55+ it is just a gorgeous community. Sitting high up on a hilly plain. They have a pool and club. Beautiful townhomes or single homes.
It is just a grand looking area. It may feel a bit out of the way at first.
But, it is not that far from the outlets, Wind Gap, and Brodheadsville......not all that far from Stroudsburg. Think that was a good thought Miss Molly!!

Default Thanks

Thanks very much to both of you for the input. The Robinhood community in Reeders sounds interesting - especially from a location standpoint. It's closer to the grandkids living in Bethlehem but still not too close (don't ask).

My only problem now is finding out more about Robinhood Village and Reeders. There's no website for Robinhood and City-Data doesn't include Reeders in their database. Good grief, that probably means I'll actually have to use some other source besides the internet to gather info. Hope I can remember how to do that.

Thanks again.

You can also take a trip there or look in the phone book and ask for a brochure.

Robinhood Village
Rt. 80 exit 299
8 miles south on 715
Its actually in McMichaels

I looked for a number but couldn't find one. (note--It's not RobinHood Lakes)

I remember finding it hard to get info on the internet for that community.
Yes, as Molly said its Robinwood Village.......guess thats right it might come under McMichaels. Just beautiful, if you can get use to the fact of then coming into Brodheadsville, for grocery shopping.......then outward for other things like Lowes, Home Depot etc. A new Lowes is going to be buillt in Wind Gap soon. They have a Kmart there. Then down 33 to 248 for any store your heart desires. Its all along there. Also, Phillipsburg is good for shopping.
Or there is a Kohls, and Lowes right in Stroudsburg/Tannersville.....so that would be just a hop. The Outlet Mall is straight up 715.
Ok now, they have a gate, so you won't be able to just get in there.
I've wanted to many a time just to look around.
They have a great amount of land, it is in the mountains plateau.
You may need a realtor to get in, unfortunately........because it is always so nice to look on ones own terms and in leisure.
There is just such nice land there and woods, not crowded.........and.......
just about the right distance from Bethlehem I understand, we have little ones in Forks.... Love em', and don't ask
I'm getting confused now myself.........its ROBINWOOD VILLAGE......... Robinhood is entirely different and a regular community
Seems to be under Saylorsburg for some reason, and ........now I am remembering that info. Not much on line, may need to contact the realtors, for that....
