A Cal­gary fam­ily is mak­ing fond mem­o­ries at their cot­tage at beau­ti­ful Gull Lake in cen­tral Al­berta. We look at Merid­ian Beach.

Jo­ce­lyn Frazer has happy mem­o­ries as a child at Gull Lake. And with her weekend re­treat at Merid­ian Beach, she and her fam­ily have been able to make even more. Jo­ce­lyn and her hus­band Ge­off bought a lot and built a cot­tage at the scenic cen­tral Al­berta de­vel­op­ment.

“My grand­par­ents had a cot­tage that they owned since shortly af­ter the war, and as a child I grew up spend­ing sum­mers at Gull Lake and had re­ally fond mem­o­ries,” says Jo­ce­lyn.

Friends of the cou­ple bought a lot at Merid­ian Beach — and in 2009 the Fraz­ers stopped by to see if it was right for them.

“We fell in love with the lot that we have,” says Jo­ce­lyn.

They bought the lot and built their cot­tage, which was ready in time to spend Christ­mas in the fol­low­ing year. “It has been a won­der­ful gath­er­ing point for our fam­ily,” she says.

The cou­ple has four chil­dren, two of whom live out­side of the prov­ince, so a cosy meet­ing place next to the lake works well.
