Vacation Homes

The economy is slowly but surely beginning to recover. While some people have had to cut back on extra expenses, such as a home away from home for summer (and winter) vacations, others have been able to take advantage of the market conditions. With rent and housing prices dropping significantly to adjust to this high-inventory, low-purchase market, there are some great deals out there.

Whether you are looking to sign a long-term lease or buy, these beautiful areas of Canada are a great place to start looking for your dream vacation home. These destinations are full of things to do all year round, so choose today and secure a great getaway for this summer.

Whistler, British Columbia: If you’re looking for somewhere that serves as a year-rount tourist destination, Whistler is for you. They have everything, from skiing, festivals, mountain biking and hiking trails, a beautiful shopping area, a thriving arts scene and more. The drive to and from Whistler is absolutely stunning. Homes in this area are in high demand, so don’t wait to start shopping!

Cape Breton, Nova Scotia: Cape Breton is the perfect combination of quaint and historic. With modern luxuries but an old-time atmosphere, it is a great place to escape to the great outdoors and enjoy the east coast. The Globe and Mail writes, “With views of the ocean as well as scenic restaurants, shops and museums lining its shores, visitors arrive in droves to take in this Atlantic gem. As a result, the demand for seafront properties is high.” Go for a visit this summer and see what dream home awaits you.

Gull Lake, Alberta: A little more close to Calgary, Gull Lake is a hidden gem. Often overshadowed by the crowed beaches of Radium, BC and Sylvan Lake, AB, Gull Lake is a much more quiet vacation spot. The water is warm, the beaches are sandy, the storefronts are quaint, the area is full enough to provide things to do but not so full that it is overwhelming. Who could ask for more?

Florida and Arizona are popular places for vacation homes, but there are some beautiful areas in Canada that deserve the same amount of credit and wonder.

Go do some research, your dream vacation home awaits!
