Life isn’t just about where you live. It’s about how you live. Having a beautiful home in a pleasant area is one thing – but living a full, healthy, meaningful life is about what you do and who you do it with, not where you hang your hat. Forest Lakes Country Club is exactly the place where you can live a full, fun and family-oriented life, year-round.

After all, why should we wait for vacations to enjoy socializing, kicking back and trying new things? Living at Forest Lakes Country Club means not reserving a few meager weeks out of the year to be yourself – instead it means that riding horses, playing world-class golf, ice skating, going to the spa and hiking become your daily experiences. And why not? It’s time to truly love where you live.

From season to season, Forest Lakes Country Club residents can take their pick of downtime activities, even if that means high-intensity action. From boating and swimming at the lake in the summer to cross-country skiing and ice skating in the winter to horseback riding, walking and hiking the trails all year round, life will be full and active.

As for indoor fun, Forest Lakes Country Club will offer the first Family Entertainment Centre of its kind in Nova Scotia – where kids and adults of all ages can enjoy spending time together engaging in fun educational and social activities. Plans include a bowling alley, a water park, a Kid’s Club, laser tag and child care services.

And after some time running around with the kids, who wouldn’t enjoy a little “me time”? Take a breather at the Forest Lakes Spa and Wellness Centre – have a facial, massage or just unwind in the sauna. Spa staff will offer a wide range of health and well-being disciplines, ready to take care of the individual needs of Forest Lakes’ residents and visitors.

As for using up those precious vacation days to take trips to a world-class golf course, Forest Lakes residents don’t have to bother – there’s a Nicklaus Design course right in their own community. Take in a round of golf on a course that’s the first of it’s kind in Atlantic Canada. With 18 holes, spectacular scenery, an exceptional clubhouse and a golf academy, the top of the line facilities will delight residents and the local golfing community alike.

Do you enjoy the idea of camping but not the thought of loading and unloading the car with equipment and supplies? Living in Forest Lakes Country Club means having your own community boathouse, picnic spaces, fire pit and even an Equestrian Area– enjoy community barbecues and bonfires by the lake, hike the trails and go horseback riding in the day, stargaze at night – all the outdoor romance and fun, without the hassle!

If it’s a little retail therapy you’re craving, the Village Centre will hit the spot. Easily accessible from all over the resort and a focal point for residents and guests, there will be a variety of retail shops, markets, cafes, hotels, restaurants and amenities without leaving your home.

The concept of Forest Lakes Country Club is brilliant in its simplicity – it’s a getaway-worthy destination that you can call home. A community offering residents and guests everything they need to enjoy life as it should be lived – to the fullest.
