Glenhaven is a quiet community built around 2 lakes, Reed lake that spills over into Cain Lake.  Both lakes are kept quiet due to the prohibition of motor boats and jet skis. Only quiet electric motors and paddle power allowed.  Larger Lake Whatcom is only a 5 minutes drive to South Lake Whatcom public boat ramp, that allows power boats.

The mountain to the west is Lookout Mountain and boasts many great hiking trails including Squires Lake, and spectacular views from the summit.  The mountain to the east is called Anderson Mountain.There are currently 678 homes in Glenhaven with 5 more in the construction phase.  The community consists of 1198 lots.

The community has some great ammenities that include the clubhouse pictured here which is available for members to use for those special gatherings.  Located on the Glenhaven Island on Glenhaven Drive.

The community heated swimming pool is a hit during the long days of summer.  The pool offers full time life guards, adult swim time and occasionally has  swimming classes.

Just to the south of the swimming pool you'll find a tennis court and several basketball hoops to practice your shots.  The island also has a large grass field to enjoy and play set for younger children to explore.  Along the grassy field is a nice pebble beach on Cain Lake's northern shore. That's where you'll find me and my family on most warm summer days with our Kayaks close by.

Much of the area has either lake views or mountain views. On some of the higher lots you may find great views of the Twin Sisters.  The numerous large cedar and hemlock trees throughout the community adds character.

If you are looking for a valley of refuge and safety, thus it's meaning, take a drive over and let me show you around.  I live and work here all year around.

All the Best,
