Now that summer has finally shown it’s warm, smiling face, it’s time to start thinking about those summer time vacations. When we think vacation, many of us immediately picture beachside relaxation. We Albertans may not have immediate access to the ocean, but the well kept lakes within our province are the next best thing. Gleniffer Lake is one such lake, and it lives up to the expectation of a relaxing beachside experience! If lounging on a beach is what you consider the optimal summer vacation, why not choose Gleniffer Lake for your family’s next vacation hotspot?
Whether you’re taking the kids and the dog out for a week of lakefront fun or you simply need a weekend getaway, Gleniffer Lake is the place for you. With 12 properties to choose from and so much to do onsite, there’s something here for everyone. The lake is clean, crisp, and perfect for all your favourite beach activities, including sandcastle construction, swimming, and water fights with the kids. If boating or sailing is a hobby of yours, we’ve got you covered — Gleniffer Lake offers boat dock rentals and sales!
Once you’ve tired of water related endeavors, visit the restaurant in our community center that backs directly onto the lake. It promises a beautiful view for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If you need snacks or marshmallows for later, our general store is stocked with DVD rentals, a variety of goodies for the kids, and the Foothills Creamery Ice Cream. Depending on your rental site, those marshmallows will come in handy when you get the fire started for smores! And don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about our golf enthusiasts. Gleniffer Lake also has putting greens and a challenging 9 hole golf course that is sure to please golfers at any level. If baseball is more your thing, the baseball diamond is home to Saturday morning baseball games that you’re welcome to take part in.
All of this is closer than you think; Red Deer is only a 35 minute drive away, Calgary a 75 minute commute, and Edmonton is just a 2 hour road trip! Don’t waste your time and money on gas when luxury is so close to home.
Regardless of how you like to spend your vacations, whether lounging on the beach with your favourite book or participating in one of the many team activities we host here onsite, you will find something that will make this a summer getaway to remember. Not only is Gleniffer Lake the perfect place to bring the whole family, but the community is also pet friendly and we welcome your pups and kittens. For your next summer adventure, book with us!
