Country living just west of the city with your lakeside property

People recognize that there are treasures to be had with owning lake property and living the country lifestyle, whether that's through the summer months, the winter months or even year round. But one that many people don't know is that all of those things can be had without leaving beautiful Alberta. Less than an hour's drive from the city, Edmonton's Tri-lakes communities offer a full range of year-round homes, summer homes, cottages, lots and acreages.

Lake Wabamun, Lake Isle and Lac Ste. Anne have unique and special histories that reveal undiscovered richness. Some communities provide all amenities and essentials for year-round country living, while others provide endless fun through the summer or winter months.

You can find more about the lakefront cottages, homes and properties available on our listings pages, or learn more about each of these breathtaking lake communities and how they can be a great choice for you and your family.

Get The FACTS About Edmonton's Lake Country

Think owning a lake property in the Okanagan or other BC resort is your prime option? Think again.

Fact:

Edmonton's lake country is, on average, only 4° lower in temperature than the Okanagan region. The tradeoff for that small decrease in temperature?

  • What are you saving on cost? Real estate prices are higher in the BC resort area compared to Edmonton's lake country.
  • What are the maintenance costs? Taxes and expenses are higher in BC than in the Edmonton area.
  • What are the travel costs? Factor in the cost of fuel and car maintenance.
  • What is your time worth? You can get to Edmonton's Tri-Lakes communities in under an hour. You'll spend a day – at least – getting to the Okanagan.

For a few extra frost-free days or a couple of extra degrees warmth, is it worth it?
