3 Benefits of Living in a Lake Community

Home School Home Buying Tips

Choosing a community to live in is an important decision. What kind of amenities will I have access to? Are there schools close by? Is it easy to get in and out of the community? And most importantly, is it worth considering a lake community? Here, we share three benefits to living in a lake community that you might not have considered.

Coming home feels like a mini vacation.

In a lake community, you don’t really feel like you’re living in the city — it’s a vacation-style life, right at home. Auburn Bay, for example, is built in a cottage-country spirit, and the community functions as a “home away from away.”
Kids love building sand castles on the beach and everyone loves soaking up the sun every summer weekend. Our homes are designed to fit this peaceful family lifestyle, with cozy great rooms and floor plans that make relaxing easy.

Family fun all season round.

You might think that a community lake can only be used for a few months in the summer, but most lake communities offer four-season lake living, like Mahogany. They have the largest freshwater lake in the city, spanning 63 acres (25 hectares). In summer months, residents swim, canoe, kayak and even pedal boat, and in winter months they skate and play hockey. At Morrison, we have great options floorplan options in this community with spacious mudrooms and plenty of storage to keep family-fun gear organized.

Places to play and gather with neighbours.

Not only do Auburn Bay and Mahogany have lakes, these two southeast communities have parks, pathways and green spaces. It’s easy to be active, enjoy some family fun or take an evening stroll with the dog while making new friends in the neighbourhood. Auburn Bay and Mahogany both have community centres that act as gathering sites for residents and host additional programming and activities. The homes Morrison builds reflect the friendly structure of the community, with open-concept main floors and generously sized bonus rooms designed to function as gathering places.
