Consider the Benefits of Maintenance-Free Living

As featured in ReFINEd Magazine.

Life in a resort-style community such as Forest Lakes Country Club is full of incredible benefits. Forest Lakes has everything you would need or want in a community, from Atlantic Canada’s first Nicklaus Design golf course to year-round amenities, including the newly introduced maintenance-free living packages.

You might be wondering, “What exactly is maintenance-free living?” It’s a way for you to have more time to enjoy activities and spend time with the people you love.

Here are five great reasons to consider maintenance-free living:

1.  Year-round upkeep
Time is a precious commodity and the team at Forest Lakes understands just how important it is to you. The landscaping team at Forest Lakes can preserve your home’s curb appeal with mowing, weeding, gardening and year-round upkeep, while you put that time back in your pocket to spend with your family, exploring the multi-purpose trail network or paddling a canoe on serene Cochran Lake.

2. Protect your investment
Everybody’s good at something, but nobody’s good at everything. Maintenance-free living gives you access to handymen you can trust to do the job right. For all those essential repairs and small jobs, such as repainting the master bedroom or re-grouting your bathroom tiles, Forest Lakes has you covered.

3. A clean home is a happy home
There’s nothing like the comfort of a clean and tidy home, but finding the time can be a challenge. Luckily, Forest Lakes’ housekeeping services can be customized for your family’s needs. You can schedule a weekly housekeeping routine, or call in for extra service as needed, such as when your friends and family come over for your annual holiday get-together!

4. Winter should be a joy, not a chore
Nova Scotia’s picturesque winters provide plenty of reasons to enjoy the outdoors. Let our friendly and helpful staff keep your steps, walkways and driveways safe and clear of snow and ice, so you can save your strength for building that perfect snowman with your family.

5. Worry-free travel
Whether you’re traveling south for the winter, visiting the in-laws for a weekend, or going out of town on business, you can trust the team at Forest Lakes to treat your home as if it were their own. Their basic home watch services give you peace of mind by ensuring everything is running smoothly while you are away.

While there are many direct benefits of maintenance-free living, none compare with the way all areas of your life will improve when you have the freedom to shape it the way you want. With first-class services and a warm sense of community, Forest Lakes is the perfect place to get the most out of life.
