Our resale listings are located on the north shores of Gleniffer Lake. This year round resort is a hidden paradise which offers many amenities.
Gorgeous Gleniffer Lake, a part of the Dickson Dam project, was created in 1983 when the Alberta Government dammed the Red Deer River. The lake is approximately 80 feet deep in the original riverbed and is 7 miles long and 11/2 miles wide. These properties are deeded title ownership which means you own the land you purchase. All but phase 1 has deep service lots, to allow for year round enjoyment. The roads are plowed in the winter and one of the ponds on the golf course is cleared for skating. The indoor pool and hot tub are open year round, which is perfect on a cold day. You will also find many cross country skiing tracks around the golf course.
Gleniffer Lake is named after the tiny post office that was located near the present dam site. Dickson Dam takes its name from the nearby hamlet of Dickson, which was named after Mr. Benedickson, a settler who arrived from Norway near the turn of the century (Holmgren and Holmgren 1976).
With a large population going into retirement, recreational property in Alberta will continue to grow in popularity. Why would a retired couple want to stay in the big city? Why not move away from the traffic and pollution that surrounds us in the big city and come to a clean, friendly gated community. A place that is not too far from the kids and the grandkids, but far enough from the stresses of the city. A fun filled resort, with lots of activities, and still close to family. BC is a long drive to have the kids come and visit, but Gleniffer Lake is just a short drive from Red Deer or Calgary. We hope you will make the time to come and see for yourself. GLENIFFER LAKE HAS IT ALL!!

For those of you that are unfamiliar with this beautiful, unique Alberta recreational community, the proper spelling is "Gleniffer Lake". It has always surprised me how different everyone spells Gleniffer Lake. I have seen Gleniffer Lake, Gleniffer Lake, Jeniffer Lake, and several other ways. This is the main reason I decided to have two ways for the public to find my site. Either glenifferlake.ca or theresort.ca, this way there is less confusion, and you will be able to easily find my website.
No matter what you enjoy doing most, Gleniffer Lake will prove that it is not only a great investment! but also a great lifestyle.
