A New, Lakefront Community Catering to 55-Plus Crowd to Open This Fall in Reno

August 13, 2020

RENO, Nev. –  Situated on picturesque lakefront property with expansive views of the Sierras,  Mountain Lakes Estate Retirement Living is Reno’s newest active lifestyle community for adults 55 and better. Construction is nearly complete, and residents are expected to move in this fall, said Darryl Fisher, president of Mission Senior Living. The community is located at 765 South Meadows Parkway, Reno.

The 121,000 square-foot, four-story building offers 131 apartment homes, all of them studio, one- and two-bedroom units. Balconies are available in select residences. According to Fisher, the community was designed to be a “room with a view” at every turn. “Every window, balcony and outdoor seating area is the perfect spot to take in Reno’s natural beauty.”

Covered patios and an outdoor fire pit bring the outdoors, indoors. There are winding paths for walking and biking, and nearby trails for early morning hikes. From the shoreline residents can fish or launch their canoe or kayak for a morning paddle. Every aspect of the community has been “designed to make healthy, active, and connected living a way of daily life,” Fisher explained.

Mountain Lakes Estates is close enough to Reno for residents to stay connected to the community and experience the culture. There’s the theater and performing arts center, galleries and museums, lifelong learning classes at the nearby University of Nevada; and local spas, shopping and casinos.

Neighboring Truckee and Lake Tahoe offer weekend and daylong getaways.

Fisher said that without the hassles of home ownership, residents can lock up and leave without having to worry about maintenance or security. “Community living is ideal for people who view retirement as a new chapter in life. When you have the freedom, conveniences and resources available, you can live life however you choose.”

Dining options include chef-prepared meals served in the dining room, and lighter fare offered in the bistro and coffee shop. There are expansive indoor and outdoor areas for entertaining and social gatherings, plus a lakeview outdoor firepit, gardening areas, and benches situated along the lake.

Amenities include a billiards room, movie theater, creative arts center, and beauty salon and barbershop. Exercise classes and programs will be offered in the wellness/fitness center; along with access to a fully equipped fitness center.

A limited number of apartment homes in select sizes and styles are available. Call (775) 384-1026 or visit Follow the community on Facebook at

Mountain Lakes Estates will employ about 25 full- and part-time team members. Each will be trained in the mission, values and principles (MVPs) that support the organization’s mission of caring people, serving people, improving lives.

Project partners include Pinnacle Architects, PA, MSL Construction, LLC, Contract Interiors.
