The beauty of retirement is that you can choose your adventure. For some, that means exploring new places until you land on one that feels just right. Others embark on a whole new career. Cynthia and Mark Bordash did both.
The couple, our newest owners at Naples Motorcoach Resort, started talking about growing and selling Christmas trees in the late ‘90s, and took the leap while still working in their respective careers and while their kids were in school.
“Idle conversation turned to reality, and, before I knew it, we had bought 100 acres and an 1871 Victorian farmhouse no one had lived in for 20 years that would give Chip and Joanna Gaines a challenge,” says Cynthia. “Fast forward to 2004, and we were selling our house, renovating the farmhouse, and putting 4,800 seedlings in the ground with the whole, extended family involved.”
Once the Bordashes had both retired, staying on the farm year-round became unnecessary. Then, they arrived at Naples Motorcoach Resort. “Once Mark retired last January, we wanted to spend time somewhere warm after the cold Ohio tree season,” Cynthia says. “We decided to explore ownership so we could spend time in Naples and not rely on rental properties being available when we wanted to visit.”
Enticed by the ability to make personalized lot improvements, as well as in love with the all of the amenities available, the couple decided to join the Naples Motorcoach community.
“All those reasons brought us to Naples, but what actually clinched the decision was the people,” Cynthia adds. “The lot owners we have had the pleasure to meet made us realize this was not just a resort, but a community, where we knew we’d feel comfortable and welcome and look forward to spending time.”
Now, they balance their time relaxing in Naples, while serving up free hot cocoa and helping customers find the perfect Concolor Fir, Canaan Fir, handmade fresh garlands, wreaths, ornaments, and gifts, along with a variety of other seasonal and special items.
“We also have s’mores kits made up and marshmallow sticks by the bonfire, where you can sit at the picnic table overlooking the lake and sip your cocoa over the fire.”
