It Was Love at First Site For Joe and Jenny Gervais

Love at first sight (or first site!) is a common occurrence at Silver Palms RV Resort. Many tour the resort or stay for a visit and immediately opt to purchase a lot so they can come and go as they please—or never leave! But, sometimes, the timing is better the second time around.

Joe and Jenny Gervais of Marcellus, Michigan, first stayed at Silver Palms in 2017. While they quickly solidified friendships and adored the lifestyle the resort afforded and the welcoming camaraderie of the people that they met, the couple was not quite ready to stop traveling. But that was hardly the end of their Silver Palms story.

“Joe called the Silver Palms office in late December and mentioned they would be coming back to the resort to dog sit for friends they made while staying at Silver Palms last year,” says general manager Lisa Migliore. “As soon as they arrived, Jenny said to Joe, ‘I’m Home.’”

That’s all it took for the pair to transition from Silver Palms guests to owners. They quietly picked out their lot to surprise their friends, and, “not five minutes after posting the ‘SOLD’ sign, everyone was so excited to learn that Joe and Jenny were here to stay.”

Silver Palms is a favorite RV Resort located in Florida’s Inland Sea area that offers five-star luxury with gorgeous scenery, an abundance of amenities including a heated pool with poolside bar and cafe, 10 pickleball courts, and a clubhouse with ongoing events. The city of Okeechobee is teeming with serene beauty, wildlife, and recreation, as well as a growing array of entertainment, dining, and shopping options. The 730-mile-long Lake Okeechobee, the second largest body of fresh water in America and one of the best bass fishing destinations in the country, is a natural wonder and the Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail is the go-to spot for birding, running, walking, biking, and catching one spectacular sunset after another.
