We have a saying “if you can’t dock your boat it is not waterfront!”
Not all realtors share this opinion, so you may find homes on this list that they have classified as waterfront. Yes technically they may be on water, but they are not lakefront.
It makes a real difference in the amount of use you get out of your boat, whether you are on lakefront or not. If you are lakefront you drop your boat, and take off. If you are not you have to go to the public launch, wait in line to launch, go park your vehicle and then you take off under the bridge to enjoy your boat. Then when you are done you have to wait in line to take your boat out, get your vehicle and then pull it out. Lakefront homes will have an East Chestermere, West Chestermere or Cove Road address.
Not all waterfront locations are equal…
- The water depth may not accommodate your boat.
- Some lots have natural sand, some have mud.
- Noise from the Highway can travel over water.
- There is a speed limit on the North end of the lake (The Cove) so you need to be able to get your boat under the bridge.
As lakefront residents for 28 years, and active water-sports enthusiasts we can help you find the location that works best for you…We know the waterfront market as Doug has sold over 78 lakefront homes and Marjorie has sold 44.
From about May 1 to Thanksgiving we can give you a boat tour of the lake. It makes a difference to see it from the lake. Call us to set up a time to meet. We would love to help you find your home on the lake.
