If you’re looking for a great place to call home, we invite you to come for a visit and discover why Lake Helen is called “The Gem of Florida”. The neighborhood feel of stepping back in time is extended to our quiet family friendly town where outdoor parks, equine facilities and top area schools are within a short walk, golf cart or bike ride.

Nestled along Interstate 4 in west Volusia County, Lake Helen is conveniently located less than one mile from I-4 making it easy to commute to Orlando, Lake Mary, Daytona Beach, Disney World, and virtually anywhere in Central Florida. If you are a new resident welcome to Lake Helen make sure to visit our “neighborhood” page and learn more about our history. Feel free to use the “search tool” on the top right.
