Is there any chance your park will close?
No, and we back it up. If you purchase a new home through Mobile Retreat, LLC you will receive a no-closure guarantee. If we close the park during your lifetime, we will buy your home back at the assessed value, or pay to have it moved and set up in any community in Washington. Your choice. Guaranteed in writing. Of course, it’s easy to make this promise because we’re never going to close Mobile Retreat.
What size homes can you accommodate?
Mobile Retreat allows both single and doublewide manufactured homes, although there presently aren’t any vacant spaces.
Do you allow children and pets?
Because Mobile Retreat is a 55+ community, children are not permitted to live in the park permanently, but we love it when they visit. Pets are allowed under certain conditions. Dogs must be less than 25 pounds at maturity. Cats are welcome.
If I apply for a space, do you run a credit check?
Yes. Prospective residents must fill out an application. We look for residents with good credit, but you don’t necessarily have to have perfect credit.
