Retire in an independent and active retirement community with lake views.
Warm sunshine making the adjacent lake’s surface dance with winking diamonds; a gentle breeze ruffling indigo patio umbrellas; the distinct call of gulls soaring across a cloudless sky—no, you’re not on a relaxing vacation at a beautiful Arizona resort, but at home at Chartwell Harbours Retirement Residence. Our retirement community is in picturesque Coventry Hills—considered one of the best neighbourhoods in North Calgary—and features convenient amenities like grocery stores, restaurants, fitness centres and Deerfoot Trail. Such an enviable location means you can benefit from all the shopping and services you need to lead the active and independent lifestyle you desire, yet still feel like you’re living in a serene setting tucked away from it all.
Maritime charm with a touch modern design
The look and feel of our independent living residence are inspired by our gorgeous lakeside setting and transports residents to tranquil harbours. Walk through our doors and you’ll instantly feel at peace, thanks to a nautical colour palette of soothing seashell white and splashes of crisp blue. You’ll find our modern home design and delightful maritime touches help to incorporate the outdoors into our comfortable amenities and common spaces, as do the large windows with water views you’ll see throughout our residence.
Our suites are equally as attractive, featuring spacious and well-designed layouts that feel modern and fresh. Some of our suites also have full kitchens, walk-out patios and lake views.
Like living on a docked
It isn’t just living along the shores of a lake that will make you feel like you’re aboard a docked cruise ship, but the delicious meals, housekeeping, entertaining activities, and personalized experiences that you receive at Chartwell Harbours each day. Here, you can choose to enjoy an appetizing supper or à la carte offering served table-side in our light-filled dining room—featuring high ceilings and lake views—or perhaps under the shade of a patio umbrella in our outdoor courtyard. There are also opportunities for exercise in our fitness rooms, Happy Hour in the pub, reading in the library, religious services in our chapel, and a full calendar of recreation and outings. With walking paths encircling the lake and raised garden beds in the courtyard, there are also plenty of reasons to venture outdoors.
At Chartwell Harbours, we offer a lifestyle that strikes a balance between serenity and activity, and provides you with the independence, choice, and freedom to spend your time exactly how you want to. Home care support is also available through Alberta Health Services. After working hard all your life, you’ve earned the right to sit back, relax and enjoy the convenient and charming lifestyle we provide.
The dining experience
At Chartwell Harbours, we want you to lead the independent, worry-free lifestyle that you deserve in your retirement years. That’s why we offer a diversified menu to make your life better, including delicious and wholesome chef-prepared meals served by friendly staff in our light-filled dining room, featuring high ceilings and lake views. We also have a private dining room that can be booked for family gatherings, a bistro for coffee and snacks, and a pub to enjoy a pint.
Activities and amenities
Our retirement community is a lively, engaging place to call home not only because of our residents and staff, but the many optional activities we offer. Consider joining us for yoga, crafts, our Rhythm ‘n’ Moves exercise program, a book discussion in the library, a glass of wine in the courtyard overlooking the lake, or a fun outing to a nearby restaurant, the theatre or shopping trip aboard the Chartwell bus. You choose how you spend each day with us, and there’s always something interesting on offer if you feel like socializing, pursuing a hobby or adding some variety into your day.
