The location

Cottage Club is a scenic, master-planned community that sits on the shores of Ghost Lake. Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, just 35 minutes west of Calgary, the community offers residents plenty of opportunities for recreational fun, from water skiing and sailing to fishing, swimming and more.


What to love

This custom-built home exudes cottage charm, both inside and out. On the outside, the home features a pergola-covered porch, white trim and expansive windows that let in the light. Inside, the great room boasts a floor-to-ceiling wood-burning fireplace and a glass wall with sweeping views of the lake. The kitchen includes an induction stove, an island and breakfast bar, and plenty of cupboard space. The primary bedroom is a true retreat, with a vaulted ceiling, lake views, a large ensuite, a private deck and an office. The basement features a small bar and fridge, a rec room and a four-piece bathroom. There’s also a room above the garage with a two-piece bathroom for any visiting guests or friends.


What to consider

The community’s outdoor barbecues, fireplace and wind-screened patio overlooking Ghost Lake are also ideal for hosting friends and family when the weather is nice.
