It comes as no surprise to anyone that spending winter in Alberta isn’t on any retiree’s bucket list. But while we old birds love to travel to warmer shores during those snowy, bitter months, what about when it’s summer time here at home? Did you know that don’t have to travel out of province to find a little slice of sandy heaven? A seventy-five minute commute out of Calgary or a two hour trip south of Edmonton, Gleniffer Lake offers a special kind of paradise that’s basically in our backyards. Here’s how you can have a taste of that beachfront getaway without having to travel thousands of miles!
Though it might not be the Caribbean, shoreside at Gleniffer Lake is the next best thing. The clean, crystal clear waters are perfect for every water activity you can think of. Sand castle competitions with the grandkids are possible every weekend of their summer vacation on the nearly five thousand feet of pristine shoreline. You can finally fulfill your dream of sailing or simply spend a lazy summer day on the water, or you can fish to your heart’s content for rainbow trout. The local residents have found a special kind of peace fishing out here at Gleniffer Lake and you might want to come see what they’re talking about! With boat slips available for purchase or for rent, it’s so easy to slip right into the captain’s chair of your perfect summer.
If you don’t want to get your feet wet, there’s plenty of other things to do on the resort. Our challenging 9 hole golf course and gorgeous putting greens are sure to please pros and beginners alike. If you love being in the sport rather than just watching, we’ve got a baseball diamond, tennis and basketball courts and beach volleyball to keep you limber. Once the game is over, you can visit our general store, which is open all year long, and treat you and your teammates to ice cream.
Gleniffer Lake might just be your new summer home. You’ll be close to the kids and grandkids while still holding true to your vision of a beachside resort. If you’re looking to purchase, we have many gorgeous lots for you to choose from and you can take a peek at what’s available here. If you aren’t quite sold yet, we encourage you to rent one of our properties first. We know you’ll fall in love with the community and the lake and we can’t wait to help you make Gleniffer Lake your new home away from home!
