While the weather outside may be frightful at times, cozying up in your home at Lākhouse when the holiday season rolls around will definitely be delightful. And with the annual Christmas and Hanukkah gatherings, celebrations at Lākhouse can come together easily—and merrily!—when you consider the abundance of luxury indoor amenity space you’ll be able to share with family and friends.
This landmark 10-storey building on the shores of Lake Simcoe in Barrie will afford its residents resort-inspired luxury condominium living at its best. Premium real-estate developer AALTO Development brings its particular brand of brilliance to the Lākhouse condo project in the form of The Lākclub, allowing residents to deliver the very essence of modern entertaining.
“Easy” and “effortless” don’t begin to describe The Lākclub main-floor facility, which comes complete with a full catering kitchen to help create the perfect environment for holiday get-togethers.
THE PARTY ROOM will make Christmas at the condo one to remember. With plenty of room to spread out, comfortable sofas and low-slung furniture, a library and bar area, a fireplace glowing in the corner, this space can be the framework for a variety of festive settings—whatever and however you’re celebrating.
Gift-Wrapping Party? Bring it on! Whether it’s a couple of hours or a whole afternoon, just lay out some drinks, have guests chip in with a few seasonal snacks, cue the music and get busy with the pretty paper and ribbon. Just make sure you don’t accidentally reveal the gifts you have for any of those invited! Perhaps this is a way to get your neighbours involved, too—or even to share holiday spirit with the whole building. When you need that extra finger to tie a bow, there will be plenty of helpers handy.
Getting creative could also include taking it to the next level with an Ornament-Making Party. Good excuses to get together during this time of the year are plentiful.
Christmas and Hanukkah Baking is an annual holiday task on the checklist that can be made easier when there are many hands making for light work. Get your treats done in a flash with a communal-style production line—cookies, Rugelach, dainties, cabbage rolls, challah, whatever is on the menu. Get the kids involved with a Cookie-Decorating Contest.
THE DINING ROOM, with its double-sided fireplace, is great for sit-down gatherings like a Potluck Supper, a Wine Club wrap-up, a University Reunion, a Book Club year-ender, even the Passover Seder or Christmas Dinner itself. Maybe your family is huge and you haven’t room for them all in your condo. Utilizing the Dining Room and Party Room together is a great way to host an extended-family celebration and please a crowd.
It helps that the sleek Scandinavian style of The Lākclub exudes comfort. Accenting the space with soft black and grey textured materials, wood-panelled walls, textured fabrics and porcelain floors, award-winning interior design studio U31 sets a gorgeous seasonal stage upon which to appreciate this mixed-use facility.
If you’re taking the party outside, winter is beautiful in Barrie, yielding kilometres of ski trails, fun sleigh-rides through picturesque forests, even snowshoeing and skating. And if you only take the party outside for a few minutes, make that the time you catch the New Year’s Eve fireworks of Countdown Downtown Barrie, viewed from the Lākhouse Lakeside Terrace.
With mulled wine and mirthful music, your holiday party at Lākhouse is sure to engage and entertain family, friends, colleagues—anyone you want to get together with over the season. And if you’re too busy, there’s plenty to keep the party going into January.
If you’re intrigued by the idea of hosting your future holiday parties by the lake, why not visit the Lākhouse Presentation Centre and take the first step toward your new home?
