While their tagline, "Time to jump right in," is a double entendre on an easy lifestyle set alongside a beautiful beach, currently expanding for the fifth time, Cherry Hill Living has plenty to offer on top of a place to swim, kayak or fish.
Driving into the property, just 45 minutes south east of Winnipeg, through the wrought iron gates, one is immediately met with a feeling of peace. A meticulously manicured space with large lots and an abundance of trees, it’s easy to see how one could ‘jump right in.’ In fact, between the restored barn operating as Harry’s Bar, a clubhouse facility for families and friends to gather; the groomed beach complete with two play structures and a public dock as well as the pickle ball courts and walking paths, the site itself is quite spectacular but so too is the quality of life.
When I toured the property, Joan Fehr was my guide. She and her husband Harry Fehr are the owners of Cherry Hill. They found and fell in love with the property back in the early 2000’s. A long-time area native, Joan grew up swimming in gravel pits, picnicking on shore. She is lovely and gentle in her approach as she tells me about how they dreamt of one day making Cherry Hill Living a reality.
"When we first saw the property, we didn’t know what we would do with it, but knew we had to have it," she said. "We absolutely love it here and have so much fun."
Large boulders grace the grounds as do antiques in the clubhouse and good energy. In fact, the newest expansion to Cherry Hill Living is the two woodland areas, ‘The Hill’ and ‘The Garden,’ which are picturesque – allowing either spot to become the perfect place to "Live like you mean it" for two seasons, or four seasons.
