5 Reasons You Need a Cottage This Summer

There’s an old saying that Alberta has two seasons: winter and construction. But, what if we told you there’s an alternative to spending the winters longing for summer, and the summers dodging road construction?

Meet the Schmidt-Magas’ – they’re living their best cottage life less than 90 minutes from Edmonton city limits. They purchased a custom Jandel cottage and had it delivered to their property in Raymond Shores on Gull Lake. We paid them a visit last summer to see how they’ve been settling in and we’re delighted to get acquainted with their community.

Cottage life is alive and well in Alberta and we want to share 5 reasons why you should consider living the Alberta Cottage Life this summer!

1. Vacation without the baggage

How many times have you decided not to go camping due to the dreaded thought of loading, setting up, tearing down, and unloading all for just a two day trip? With a custom Jandel Cottage like the Schmidt-Magas family had delivered, you can have a year round vacation without the baggage.

Doesn’t that sound like pure bliss? Even if you’re not in the market for a full time cottage, have peace of mind knowing that you don’t need to setup and tear down every time you head to the lake!

2. Peace and Quiet

Do you hear that? Neither do we. That’s the sweet sound of silence watching the sunset over your lake lot.

Ok, you caught us. Maybe there’s a few crickets serenading you to sleep in the background.

3. A chance to rest… if you need it.

Imagine being the captain of your very own ship out at the cottage. Need to relax for a few days? Head to the backyard in your hammock and let the birds sing you to sleep. Need to let loose? Take the party to your front porch and invite your neighbours over for a margarita. Have your cottage life, your way. The options are truly endless when you’re living the Cottage Life!

4. Space to breathe without losing amenities

Cottage life gives you a unique opportunity to escape the city living without losing the convenience of local amenities. For example, the Schmidt-Magas family chose to put their custom Jandel Home down at Gull Lake, which is under 30 minutes from four local towns. With a cottage home like this, the coffee goes down extra smooth. Rest assured knowing you’re just a short distance away if you run out of beans!

5. A strong sense of community

Patio beers taste better together. Living the Cottage Life alongside an incredible community of neighbours is within your reach, too. Spend your weekends in a place where everybody knows your name, your favourite drink, and comes together to celebrate the beautiful weather and friendship.
