Financial Benefits of Owning a Vacation Home on a Lake

If you’re in the market for a new vacation home, or at least somewhere you can put up your feet next to nature and not have to worry about the hubbub of the urban jungle, have you thought about purchasing property near a lake? Not only is it a truly beautiful experience to wake up to the sounds of gentle water against shore, but purchasing a lake house nearer to home, as opposed to a tropical vacation property, can come with financial benefits. Here’s why it pays to have a lakehouse as your second home! 

 

Lakefront Property is a Wise Investment Choice

The reason being is that there’s a limited amount of lakes and therefore a limited amount of property to choose from, making lakeside property that much more idealistic. Choosing a second home near or even beachfront to a lake is not only an investment, but it’s the perfect getaway for you and your family whenever you need some time to recharge. You can turn a profit on a lake house if you’re the kind of person who enjoys DIY projects and flipping homes or you can invest in your lakefront home by remodelling and renovating, building equity as you build your dream lake house. Buying can be cheaper than renting, especially if you plan to make this lakeside home a staple in your life as well as your kid’s and grandkid’s lives. 

 

You Can Rent It!

Speaking of renting, while you’re not vacationing at the lake house yourself, there’s always the option to rent it out to folks for a week’s vacation, or even just a few weekends a year. This residual income can help pay for the cost of upkeep for your second home and can even help with renovation costs. A lakeside property will be in high demand among renters and can   Only rent if it’s something you’re passionate about, however, as renting isn’t for the faint of heart! 

 

It Can Become Your Retirement Home

Investing in a second home, particularly one with an incredible view, is the perfect way to invest in your retirement. A vacation home on the lake is ideal as a summer property, especially for snowbirds that love to chase the heat. Purchasing the property early on allows you to really get the most out of lake life as your kids are growing up, rather than once they’ve moved out, and gives you a chance to build up the equity of the property over time as you make it your own.

 

You Always Feel Like You’re On Vacation

The biggest feedback we’ve heard is that owning a lake property as your vacation home feels as though you’re on vacation 24/7! As lake property owners ourselves, we understand the tranquillity of spending those hot summer days on the water or the sand, soaking up every last moment of lake life. If this calls to you, get in touch with us today! We might just have the perfect lakeside property for you to begin your adventure of living the lake life!

Reasons to Buy a Fixer-Upper

Buying a house is a big decision, regardless of whether you’ve purchased property before or if this is the second home away from home you’ve been researching for years. If you’re interested in staying more frugal at the time of the initial buy, that’s the perfect reason to buy a fixer-upper home. Though purchasing and renovating a whole home isn’t for everybody, here are a few reasons to invest in one!

 

What is a Fixer-Upper?

A fixer-upper home is any home unit that needs some love in the form of extensive renovation and or maintenance. This could mean a full gutting of the house and yard or rooms needing more attention than others, either way, it’s a home you’re going to be investing in to essentially “fix it up.” Generally speaking, a fixer-upper is an excellent way to build equity or flip the house to resell! 

 

A Fixer-Upper Can Be Your Dream Home

A big reason to invest in a fixer-upper is the home becomes yours, customized to your taste. Every detail becomes your own design and if you’ve always dreamed of a yellow front door, guess what, now’s your chance! Lighting choices, cabinets, floor plans, it all becomes a wonderful way for you to express yourself. If you’re the kind of person who lives for DIY and can walk into a space and start thinking “what if I knock this wall down” or “imagine if I painted this wall dark blue,” a fixer-upper house might just be the perfect new project for you!

 

Lower Initial Costs, But Remember to Budget!

Like we’ve mentioned, a fixer-upper will cost much less upfront than a move-in ready home, but because it’s a fixer-upper, make sure you’ve got the funds set aside to begin the renovations soon after purchasing. This isn’t to say that you can’t save money by purchasing a fixer-upper house, because you absolutely can. Budgeting for your fixer-upper home will help you understand just how much money you’ll need to put aside for a home that needs some love. 

 

A Few Tips

Always make sure to have a professional inspection done on the home before you purchase as the inspector will be able to give you useful information on what will need fixing and may be able to give you an approximation of the costs. Also, consider the amount of work it will take to renovate a fixer-upper as it’s no easy feat. Working with your own two hands on your home can be incredibly rewarding, but be sure to weigh the physical, emotional and financial stress fixing up a house can require. And always prepare for the unexpected, such as a permit for structural work or window installation.

 

If you’re looking for a move-in ready home, a fixer-upper likely won’t be the right fit for you. A fixer-upper home is a labour of love and careful consideration and planning should preclude the thought of purchasing. But, if you’ve always loved doing things with your own two hands and you’ve got an idea, a fixer-upper is the perfect way to build equity and build something you really care about.

Buying A Second Home

Coming to the decision to purchase a second home is a big one and we’re happy to hear you’re thinking about taking the plunge! Having a second home to vacation to away from the bustle of city activity can be a lifesaver, especially in these times. If you’re looking seriously into buying a second home for you and your family to enjoy, here’s what to keep in mind. 

 

Property Types

Whether it’s a cottage in the mountains or a perfect lakeside bungalow, investing in a second home is a great way to build more equity while also enjoying yourself. Be sure to pick somewhere you’ll actually enjoy living part-time, not just because the prices are good. And whatever you do, don’t plunge into anything without properly doing your research. You want to really know the property before you decide to finance it! Discover the neighbourhood, meet the locals and have a thorough property inspection done so you know every detail. 

 

Insurance 

It isn’t uncommon that folks will forget about the costs of insurance when looking into purchasing a second home. Always ask for insurance quotes as part of your research on the home and understand the insurance needs of the property depending on its location. For example, a lake house will need flooding insurance where a mountainside cabin probably won’t.

 

Utilities 

Another aspect that can be overlooked is the actual upkeep of a second property and what that costs. You’ll have a second set of bills to look after every month and it might be smart to put a little money aside for possible emergencies, like a burst pipe. Consider how easy it would be to winter down your second home or if perhaps you’d consider renting. Renting is another story entirely, but it can really help with utility costs if it’s something you’re interested in. 

 

Financing 

If you own a home already, you likely have a mortgage. What’s nice about a mortgage is you can refinance it and then use that money as a down payment on your second property. There’s also the option of taking out a second mortgage and some banks will offer up to 85% for you to borrow, even discounting the amount you owe on the original loan. However you decide to finance your second home, make sure you understand and read the fine print of any mortgage agreement! 

 

Wanting a second home is becoming more and more popular as we look for new ways to escape from the hectic bustle of a work-life. It’s no surprise that a lot of Albertans are turning to recreational properties as a way to escape. If you’re thinking about purchasing a second home, why not check out what lots we have available? Gleniffer Lake and Paradise Reality always have something beautiful to show off!

Spruce Up Your Lakeside Cottage

Your lakeside cottage should feel like the perfect home away from home, and a lot of that feeling comes from the decor! If you’ve had your lakehouse for some time or you’re ready to spruce it up with a new makeover, here are a few easy tips on how to bring some life and excitement to your lakeside cottage! 

 

Colour Schemes

Many lakeside or beachside homes are dressed up in nautical themes full of various shades of blues, sandy tones and white. While nautical themes are a traditional and a wonderful way to decorate your cottage, there are a few other colour schemes we love! Using browns from light to dark chocolate can bring a warm, earthy feel to your cottage and is a terrific base for a rustic cabin feel. Perhaps you love the colours of autumn, so why not bring those golds, oranges, russet, reds and yellows into your decor to mimic that gorgeous fall foliage! If you love the greens that surround bodies of water, from light green to a rich pine, add a green accent wall to bring those natural colours inside. When choosing a colour scheme for your cottage, it’s a good decorating tip to pick a focus colour and then select two secondary colours to use with drapes, upholstery, wall art, furniture and knick-knacks.

 

Indoor to Outdoor Living

One of the highlights of having a lakeside cottage is that you can easily pop out to visit the lake for a swim, a boating excursion or sandcastle competitions with the grandkids. With this in mind, focusing on outdoor to indoor spaces such as porches, patios or sunrooms can make cottage life that much sweeter. Having a screened-in porch can offer a space for you to store those lakeside activities, like sand toys, water boards, kayaks and more, making the transition from outdoor activity to indoor a little easier. You can even use paddles as part of your decor that doubles as storage! 

 

Decorate Around The View

Arguably the best part of lake living is the view. If you have a space with that picturesque lake view out the windows, put your time and energy into this room as it’s likely this will be where you spend most of your relaxing hours. Furnish with only the comfiest seating for reading, visiting and napping. Hang photos of your family here, find the fluffiest pillows and coziest throws and don’t be afraid to use a bold pattern. Perhaps you’d even be willing to leave out a TV in this room, to allow for more face-to-face time with your loved ones either by chatting, playing board games or card games or reading the morning paper together. 

 

However you decide to spruce up your lakeside cottage, make sure to design it with your relaxation in mind. Your home away from home should be comfortable, easy and inviting. If you’re considering a cottage by the lake as a vacation home, we’ve got plenty of gorgeous properties to look at! Come visit us today!

Keep Your Vacation Property Safe While You’re Away

Investing in a vacation home is another way to invest in yourself because that vacation home is a place for you to relax, escape, and unwind from the stress of life in the city. That vacation home is a special place for you to recoup with your family and your grandkids, for you to enjoy the simple pleasures that come with stepping away from the concrete jungle to rejuvenate. But what happens when you’re back to work and your vacation home sits empty, waiting for your next getaway? Here’s how to keep your property safe while you’re away!

 

Security 

If you haven’t already installed a security system for your vacation home, now’s the time to do it. Motion sensor lights around the property, along walkways and around main access points is a good way to deter unwanted company on the property. If the home lights up when approached, this is an excellent deterrent for possible thieves. Having a timer on for lights inside the home makes it look lived in which is another way to prevent invaders. There are many security systems that you can now operate via your phone, allowing for remote locking, lighting and camera access.

 

Double Check Windows and Doors

As a rule, always double-check you’ve locked every window and door of your vacation home. Many break-ins happen simply because a window was left unlocked by accident. Consider installing doors with keyless locks and if there are sliding glass doors on the property, make sure to use a security bar. A security bar can be used in almost any window sill, but a two-by-four or a broom handle cut to size in the basement windows will also do the trick if you don’t mind how it looks. Be sure to secure that doggy door too, if you have one!

 

Make Friends With Neighbors 

Besides the wonderful social aspect of getting on with your neighbours, fostering a good relationship with those that live close to you provides extra protection when you’re away from your vacation home, as well as collecting mail or newspapers. Watchful neighbours are an extra set of eyes to report suspicious activity, lowering crime rates in the entire area. It pays to know your neighbours!

 

A few extra tips to keep your vacation home safe include hiring a landscaper to keep up with overgrown grass or plant life on your property and refrain from hiding a spare key somewhere obvious. It’s a good idea to just switch over to keyless locks as this removes an extra key from the equation, making the house just that much more secure. We, at Gleniffer Lake, take care of our own and keep an eye out for each other when necessary. If you’re looking for a safe place to own a vacation home, this is it! Visit our available lots today

Invest In A Property You Can Enjoy

It’s quite the undertaking to go from deciding to purchase a vacation property to the actual purchase of the lot. What goes into choosing a vacation property? There’s lots to consider when you’re interested in investing in something you’ll love that isn’t too far from home. Perhaps it’s the property you dream of retiring to. Regardless, here’s how to invest in a property you’ll enjoy!

 

Know the Area

Before you even consider any exchange of monies, make sure you know where it is you want to purchase a property and actually get to know the area. Find a local rental to stay for a few days and get to work exploring the surrounding area. Where is the closest grocery store? How about the nearest hospital? Details like this are extremely important when picking the place you want to call your home away from home. And don’t be afraid to get to know the locals, find out where the best coffee is and what folks enjoy doing in the area! If you’ve got kids, find out where the coolest kid hangouts are and what activities you could get up to as a family.

 

Know Your Budget

It’s been a hard year and many of us are ready to throw our money at just about anything to give ourselves a moment of reprieve from the madness we’ve been living through since last March. But don’t be too hasty to lay down any sort of cash until you’ve made a clear, concise budget for yourself. What can you feasibly afford when it comes to a second property? A good rule to go by is setting aside at least 1 to 2% of the property’s initial purchase price for repairs or any maintenance you may encounter in the first year. Keep in mind that most vacation properties will likely require a larger down payment than your first home, somewhere in the 30% range, and budget accordingly for this. It’s okay if you need to wait just a little longer to save for your dream home. It’s worth it to invest in a property you’ll enjoy!

 

Know Your Taste

Are you set on a mountain location? What if it’s out of your price range? Would you be happy with a lake lot or do you dream of a cabin deep in the woods? Ask yourself the questions to find out what you’re really looking for in a property. Is it a retirement home? Is it for your kids to help them experience life outside the busy city? Sit with yourself and make a list of what you enjoy and what’s important to you, and remember that list when you’re looking for a property!

 

The first rule you should follow when purchasing a piece of property is that you want to invest in your own enjoyment so find something that you’re going to really love! At the end of the day, you’re looking for a place to relax and destress after a long week at work or even just an excuse to get out of the city. Whatever drives you to search vacation properties, make sure it ends up being a search for something you’re going to enjoy!

A Vacation Property vs. A Seasonal Camping Lot in Alberta

If you love the outdoors and spending time with the fresh air and the sky, it’s not surprising if you’ve been researching vacation homes or even seasonal camping lots across the province. But what’s the benefit to either choice when looking to purchase in Alberta? We’ve compiled a pros and cons list of a vacation property vs. a seasonal camping lot in Alberta to help you decide what works best for you and your family!

 

Vacation Property

  • You have an additional property to manage and rent if you choose, meaning you’ll be taking care of another set of utilities, property taxes, etc
  • There’s always a place for you to take the kids for a weekend
  • It’s easier to host a girls weekend, a bachelor party, or a fishing trip, if you’ve purchased lake property
  • With a vacation property, you have the potential for a retirement home
  • Depending on the location of your property, it can become inaccessible in winter or you’ll need to invest in snow clearing
  • Owning a vacation home in the province makes it easier to access and frequent for getaways from the bustle of Edmonton or Calgary

 

Seasonal Camping Lot

  • Ideal for those that love the allure of camping
  • You won’t have to wait for an available campsite or book in advance, there’s always a spot available to you
  • It isn’t as costly as maintaining another property 
  • Perfect for those looking to park their rig without having to rent the space
  • Depending on where you look in Alberta, the prices can vary considerably 
  • You may have to invest in amenities 
  • Taxes and fees are either annual or monthly and can also vary greatly
  • Some purchase for year-round living while others use it as a vacation home
  • It’s easy to get away from the city, even for just a night, if your lot is close

 

It all depends on your personal preference and what you’re looking for out of your home away from home. Depending on what you’re willing to spend, you are sure to find something that will fit with your dream. Here at Gleniffer Lake Resort and Country Club, we’ve got both vacation properties and seasonal camping lots available for sale or rent. If you’re not quite sure you’re ready to purchase, come on down anyway and rent one of our gorgeous rental properties to experience Gleniffer Lake yourself.

Why Choose A Central Alberta Vacation Property

It’s really no surprise that folks are keen to find vacation property that isn’t a long flight away. Even with domestic borders opening, many are still choosing to find getaway opportunities closer to home. That’s why many folks are turning to properties they can easily drive to in a few hours! Here’s why choosing a vacation property in Central Alberta might make you the favourite parent or grandparent of the year.

 

Proximity 

With all that we’ve been through in the past sixteen months, so many of us are connecting back to family and prioritizing time spent with our loved ones. An added bonus is if you’re able to whisk the grandkids and your own kids to a vacation property that’s closer than you think. Finding a getaway home that’s within two hours’ driving distance of major cities such as Calgary and Edmonton makes it that much easier for our families to gather. Forget trying to figure out how to fly right now, just hop in the car and get to a gorgeous, lakeside property in under two hours and get to playing right away!

 

Prices

It’s no joke that the market for Canmore and area properties is booming, but so are the prices. While the mountains are a gorgeous getaway, they can be pricey on the pocketbook. What’s good about central Alberta properties is the prices won’t be so inflated and you don’t necessarily have to give up gorgeous views. Lakeside properties are on the rise and many are opting to dip their toes into lakeside real estate as opposed to mountain cabins. We always recommend trying before you buy and we’d love to invite you to rent one of our lovely properties to get a taste of lake life before you commit!

 

Whether you’re looking for a lot or a fully-realized home with a garage, Paradise Realty has got something that will suit your needs. The best part about our little slice of heaven is it’s close to our families while still giving us that “away” feel. Schedule a tour with us and see what we have to offer, but be warned.

What To Look For In A Vacation Property in Alberta

Many folks are desperate to stretch their legs and experience something other than their own city and backyard this summer!

The demand for a vacation property closer to home is high right now, but don’t let that deter you from finding your second home! Here are a few things to keep in mind when looking for a vacation property in Alberta.

 

Know The Area

Before you make any decisions on a home or a piece of land, make sure you do your research about the property you’re considering. This includes knowing the area around the desired property, such as where is the closest hospital or grocery store? Visit the area off-season and chat with locals to get to know the details of the area from the folks actually living it. In our case, come stay at one of our gorgeous rental properties and experience paradise for a few days!

 

Hire Local

Try to hire a local real estate agent, especially one that either owns a property where you’re looking or lives nearby and understands the neighbourhood. This goes for renovations to your vacation properties as well! Not only does this help the local economy, but it offers you a chance to get to know the people living and thriving around you. After all, vacation homes are a place for us to escape the concrete jungle and that small community allure is something many Albertans are chasing.

 

Before you jump into any purchase, ask yourself these questions. Are you looking for a turnkey property or are you willing to do some renovations after you purchase?

We’re so excited to show off our new and improved facilities, including upgrades to our onsite restaurant and enhancements to our pro-shop! Here’s what you need to know about our recent renovations and upgrades!

 

The Landing Restaurant

A perfect place to relax after a hard day of playing with the kids on the beach or improving your swing on the golf course is our restaurant, The Landing, which we’ve worked hard to embellish before we opened for in-person dining! You can expect a beautiful new coat of paint and brand new flooring, lit up perfectly with modern lighting. Get comfortable with our newly reupholstered seating and shiny dining tables because when we say we gave our restaurant a facelift, we mean it! We’ve installed new televisions for the optimal front seat to all the games and events beginning to happen all across Alberta as well as a new stereo system. And don’t worry, we’ve got you covered for the heat of our already hot summer with our state-of-the-art air conditioning system. We can guarantee we’ve got a place for you and your family to cool down!
Outside on our gorgeous new glass-enclosed patio, you can enjoy the summer breeze on fresh new patio furniture. We’ve repurposed our gazebo for additional seating, creating a mini bar oasis, and installed new stereo systems outside as well! Please remember to make a reservation to ensure your table is ready for you!

 

Pro-Shop

The shop you’ve come to know and love has recently undergone some facelifting as well! We’ve expanded the glass-enclosed patio here too and with the addition of the colourful umbrellas and beautiful planters, it’s proved to be a perfect getaway from the stress and volume of the concrete jungle. Be sure to stop in next time you’re here to see the new products we’ve got in store!

We invite you to join us this summer at our Central Alberta beach oasis! Gleniffer Lake Resort and Country Club is ready to welcome you back to your home away from home, but please remember that your safety is our top priority. We ask that you help us by remaining masked and proper distancing measures continue to be respected in our indoor facilities, except when seated in the restaurant. We are so excited to have you back!

Introducing Tracy Hirsch, the newest agent at Paradise Realty!

We are so excited to announce the newest addition to our sales team and Paradise Realty family, Tracy Hirsch! Tracy has over 20 years of experience in the sales industry and her enthusiasm for realty has brought her to the shores of our favourite little slice of Alberta heaven, Gleniffer Lake Resort! We would love to introduce you to Tracy!

 

When Tracy and her husband decided they wanted to invest in a “lake place,” they had no idea how hard they would fall for the friendly community of Gleniffer Lake. “We did a lot of research, a lot of touring and had many boxes that needed to be checked before we would decide where we would invest. From the moment we saw the beautiful Gleniffer Lake arch and the gorgeous winding road, we fell in love. Little did we know that arch would become our relaxation checkpoint for many years to come!” 

 

Tracy’s true love has always been properties and decorating both inside and out, but most of all her passion is people and connection. With this in mind, she decided to do something just for her, and that was to get her realtor license! She obtained her license while still working full time and raising a family with her husband, determined to reach her goal. “I was strictly doing this for myself and fulfilling a dream I always had. While I enjoyed the lake, I admired Diane and Carla and the job they were doing around the resort. They are professional, very involved in the community and have built such special relationships with people around the resort. Plus, who wouldn’t want to sell and share their favourite place with everyone and anyone?”

 

We are delighted to welcome Tracy to our team and we can’t wait for the community to get to know our newest agent better! “You can find me on the lake, near the lake or enjoying many of the events around the resorts with my husband and kids! My parents and any one of my five siblings and their families join us on the resort often and you’ll be seeing us walking our brand new puppy around the resort too! Feel free to stop me anytime for a chat or a pet for the pup. Just don’t laugh at me if you see me on the golf course as I am a horrible golfer! This is a dream come true and I can’t wait to share this amazing resort with everyone! Looking forward to meeting all of you!”

Get to the Beach Before School Starts!

Summertime is when kids get to expend all that excess energy they’ve built up over the school year. This means running around in the sunshine for hours on end, water fights in the heat, and generally just being kids in the outdoors. But sometimes it’s hard to be outside when living in the busy and crowded city. If you and the kids have been cooped up this summer and need an excuse to get outside, a summer beach vacation might be just what the family needs. This doesn’t mean you need to fly out to the tropics or the Caribbean to find a good beachfront resort. Gleniffer Lake Resort might just be the perfect “staycation” spot for you and the kids before school starts!
The nice thing about Gleniffer Lake is it’s a beachfront resort that you can get to without breaking the bank. The resort is a short commute from most of Alberta’s central cities and shorter travel time means less activities you need to plan to keep the kids occupied. Situated 2 hours south of Edmonton, 75 minutes north of Calgary and a short 35 minutes southwest of Red Deer, Gleniffer Lake is so easily accessible it’s almost laughable. The gated community is safe, family friendly and boasts summer activities for everyone.
With an indoor and outdoor pool, tennis courts, a basketball court, a baseball diamond, two playgrounds and an off-leash field for the dog, you’ll be sure to find something to keep you busy. But the real draw is the Gleniffer Lake beach. With over a kilometer and a half of gorgeous sand, the beach is the highlight for many families that visit the resort. Sandcastle building competitions with the kids and water fights in the clean, clear waters of Gleniffer Lake is a favourite of both adult and kid vacationers. After those long days of play at the beach, you can find Foothills Creamery Ice Cream at the general store along with DVD rentals for a family movie night.

Spending quality time with kids on a summer staycation is still possible before summer wraps up. Whether you choose to spend a week or every weekend at Gleniffer Lake this August, you deserve that beach vacation without the stress of travelling or the hefty expenses. Not only does Gleniffer Lake have all the amenities you could want, but the community holds Monday to Thursday yoga practices and a walking club meets every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The events calendar helps you plan your week if you’d like to do more than just be a beach bum, though beach bumming is encouraged. However you decide to spend your staycation with the family at Gleniffer Lake, it will be a summer vacation the kids will be talking about well into the school year!

4 Great Reasons to Try a “Staycation”

The moment the weather gets nicer and the snow begins to melt, we start planning our summer vacations. It’s almost as if warm weather makes us hungry for those summer leisure activities. But sometimes, for whatever reason, we aren’t able to get enough time off work or it simply isn’t feasible to fly out to a tropical beach resort, and then you realize that summer is almost over and you still haven’t booked a trip! Don’t worry, you can still go on a summer vacation this year! Have you ever considered a staycation? For working couples and bustling families, or even those busy bees who want to try a staycation solo, this is a fantastic alternative to a pricy, travel heavy vacation. Thank goodness a beach resort exists close to home, right here in central Alberta.

Close to Home

The hardest part about vacationing can be the travel time and the delayed flights. Spending half your vacation in an airport doesn’t sound overly relaxing and we all know it’s next to impossible to sleep in those uncomfortable seats! If you crave the beach, it’s actually a lot easier to find that beach vacation than you might think. Gleniffer Lake has a beautiful resort nestled next to the water and the commute time is so manageable that it barely feels like a road trip! At just 75 minutes from Calgary, 2 hours south of Edmonton and 35 minutes outside Red Deer, Gleniffer Lake Resort is the perfect place to take the kids. “Are we there yet” will barely be out of their mouths before you pull up next to the picturesque landscape.

Amenities

Not only does Gleniffer Lake have 5000 feet of shoreline, but did you know there’s also a 9 hole golf course? This challenging course is one you won’t want to miss this summer if you’re an avid or even a beginner golfer. While you’re golfing, the kids can enjoy a dip in the indoor or outdoor pools or explore the two parks onsite. If “staycation” means you don’t want to cook, The Landing is the licensed restaurant that sits right on the lake that will serve you from 11:00am to 8:00pm, with the exception of Friday steak nights and Saturday Prime Rib nights until 9:00pm. The general store is fully stocked with ice cream for those post-beach day cravings and DVD rentals are available for family movie nights.

Beaches in Alberta Do Exist

We don’t immediately associate central Alberta as being a wonderful place for a beachside vacation, but after you’ve been to Gleniffer Lake Resort you will. The water is clean, clear and perfect for all kinds of watersports and beach activities. It’s not uncommon to watch sailboats lazily gliding by, and we encourage you to set sail on Gleniffer Lake! With boat slips available to rent or purchase, it’s easy to make sailing part of your summer routine. If you prefer your feet to stay put on land, the expansive shoreline is ideal for sandcastle construction and water fights!

Bring the Whole Crew

Because Gleniffer Lake offers so much to do, it’s a no-brainer to bring the kids, take a much needed beachfront getaway with the girls or spend a few days sailing with the boys. The variety of rental properties makes it easy to find something that suits your needs and numbers, and pet friendly units are also available! With an off-leash field next to the park, the furrier family members will have a chance to run wild. Taking the whole family or your crew won’t break the bank and since it’s so close to Alberta’s major cities, it’s not nearly as difficult to coordinate a few days vacation time.
Gleniffer Lake might be your saving grace when you need to get that last minute summer vacation organized. It is still possible to enjoy a beach vacation without having to fly thousands of miles to get there, instead it’s just a quick road trip away. Check out some of our rental properties and you might just find yourself joining us for Prime Rib night next Saturday! Paradise really is closer than you think.

Gleniffer Lake: A History

With a gorgeous beach and so much to do during the summer months, Gleniffer Lake is a hot spot for summer vacations, family get togethers, or just an escape from the hubbub of the city. Whether you’re an avid golfer or someone who just likes to drive the golf cart, someone who loves water activities like sailing, or you’re a sand castle artist, the lake community has something for everybody. It may be beautiful now, but did you know that Gleniffer Lake didn’t exist before 1983?
Gleniffer Lake, or the Gleniffer Reservoir, is a manmade lake situated in the heart of central Alberta. It was originally formed in 1983 because of the Dickson Dam construction happening at the same time. The dam impounded the Red Deer River, an affluent of the Saskatchewan River, and was built primarily to enhance the the condition of the river, but also to manage flood water and winter runoff. It’s construction prompted the formation of the reservoir, for the purpose of providing recreational capabilities and forming a water supply for prospective municipal and industrial expansions.
The lake stretches 7 kilometers by 2 kilometers with a surface area of about 17 square kilometers. It’s depth ranges around 38 feet with the deepest point in the lake extending down 108 feet. This makes Gleniffer Lake an impeccable place to bring out your Cadence CS5 Spinning Reel and test out your fishing skills. Several species of fish call the deep waters of the lake home, including pike, trout, and walleye. The lake also provides local and nearby residences with fresh drinking water!
Gleniffer Lake may be manmade, but the memories made here are natural and treasured. If you’ve ever wondered what Gleniffer Lake is all about, why not come take a look for yourself? At just 75 minutes north of Calgary, a mere 45 minutes southwest of Red Deer or a 2 hour road trip from Edmonton, Gleniffer Lake is easily accessible for those who live in the city. Come see why we have loved Gleniffer Lake and all it has to offer since 1983!

3 Reasons Glennifer Lake is ideal of Students and Snowbirds

We all know how important it is to step away from our busy and often chaotic lives to rest and rejuvenate and most often this is associated with far off vacations and pricey accommodations.   If you’re a student, this is nearly unachievable on a financial level and the time restrictions on when you can vacation make it difficult to justify booking a ticket.  Snowbirds, more often than not, don’t have to battle with time constraints, but costly travel isn’t always appealing.  That, and travelling is uncomfortable no matter what chapter of your life you’re in!  But escaping from reality doesn’t have to be an expensive affair and you don’t have to travel hours to find it.  Glennifer Lake resort is not only close by, but the amenities cater to all ages without breaking the bank.  Here are a few reasons why students and snowbirds alike can find refuge at Glennifer Lake resort.

Close to home

Glennifer Lake is located in central Alberta and is an easy commute from any of Alberta’s major cities.  From Red Deer it’s a quick 35 minute drive and folks from Calgary can make it in 75 minutes, while Edmonton is only a 2 hour road trip away.  Why waste time and money flying when road trips are so much easier on a student budget?  We Albertans are not unaccustomed to travelling by car and these speedy car rides to paradise are appealing when time is precious.

Summer is where it’s at

Escaping to the beach and spending time in the sunshine is summer living in a nutshell.  Glennifer Lake boasts a beautiful beach and the water is clear, refreshing and algae free.  Boating, sailing and other water sports are widely enjoyed by everyone who chooses the resort as a vacation destination and the lake has much less water traffic in comparison to other Alberta beaches.  If keeping your feet on solid ground is more attractive, there’s also beach volleyball, tennis courts and basketball courts to keep you occupied.  The community holds BBQ’s and other social events and if you have a furry friend with you, there’s a beautiful off leash field to roam and explore.  Spending time outdoors doesn’t have to be difficult when Glennifer Lake offers so much to do.

The amenities

Speaking of things to do, if being a beach bum isn’t your cup of tea, Glennifer Lake has so many other options for you.  Snowbirds love their golf, but students also take advantage of the 9-hole course and putting greens and can sometimes give the snowbirds a run for their money!  After a challenging game, take a dip and relax in the hot tub or go for a swim in the indoor or outdoor pools.  The fully licensed restaurant and lounge on site is a wonderful place to kick back after a long day of vacationing.  And the best part about all of this?  Glennifer Lake is a year round resort that offers it’s amenities no matter the season.  So whether you’re looking for something to do over reading week or there’s a free weekend on your calendar in July, Glennifer Lake is the closest little piece of paradise you’ll find.
