Named one of the "50 Best Master-Planned Retirement Communities in the US" by Where to Retire Magazine!

Located just 20 miles from historic Gettysburg and within 90 minutes of Washington and Baltimore, and just 3 ½ hours from New York City, we are close enough to stay in touch with your family & friends and far enough away to leave the traffic and hassles behind.

Pennsylvania and Penn National offer many advantages for retirees. Pennsylvania does not tax retirement income, including distributions from your 401K plan. Further, residents may choose from a variety of homes, including single-family and patio homes, condos and villas. Residents have privileges of membership to the golf courses; have access to the clubhouse, swimming pool and tennis courts. A wide variety of clubs and activities provide networks for friendships and hobbies. Uniquely, Penn National has no Master Association fees or charges and there are no mandatory fees—amenities, like golf, are a la carte—you only pay for things that you choose to use.  

About Our Community

Penn National was founded in 1968 and has been developed with care by the same stable ownership since its inception.  With more than 1,400 acres, Penn National is a thriving community of more than 1,000 families. Our amenities are in place and able to be enjoyed by you now—there is no waiting until the Clubhouse is built or the golf courses are open!

Although the Community is not age-restricted, it has naturally attracted a predominately 55+ group of residents who appreciate the natural beauty of the 85,000-acre Michaux State Forest next door or the quality and variety of the amenities available to residents.  For hikers and outdoors lovers, we are a short drive from the Appalachian Trail and from kayaking and canoeing on Long Pine Run Dam. For golfers, we have two nationally-recognized, 18-hole championship golf courses – the Founders and Iron Forge courses. Since 1999, both have consistently been awarded four stars by Golf Digest's "Places to Play" and have also received top ratings by Zagat Guide’s  "America’s Top Golf Courses."

Pricing and Other Details

Penn National is different from many of the 55+ Communities you may visit in many ways:

  • The large 55+ developers are primarily production builders with many communities and we are a family-owned business with one Community--they develop and move on, this is where we live. 
  • The production builders want you to commit to a completed home on a homesite where they can build out a specific area and achieve savings through scale;
  • At Penn National, we let you select a homesite now and then build when you’re ready. This production builder's way is better for Them--Our way is better for YOU because you can “lock in” where your want to live NOW and then build when the time is right (near retirement);
  • The big guys are really production builders with a limited set of models | We are NOT builders but rather match you with one of our local craftsman builders to help you get the house that YOU want;
  • This means you can choose one of our home plans and work with the builder to customize it, or, you can bring your own plan. You will work directly with the builder to get the house you have been dreaming about. All Penn National Builders are small family-owned businesses who are involved with the planning, pricing, construction and service of your home after sale.

Homesites from $75,000. Homes from the low $200’s to mid-$300’s.  No Master Association fees and Pennsylvania does not tax retirement income.
