About Gerald Dewald

I am originally from Alberta but my roots are in Saskatchewan where my grandparents first homesteaded in 1915. When I moved here in 2002, I did not realize the natural beauty this province has to offer. Hiking and kayaking are two of my favorite leisure activities, not to mention fishing and camping. My hiking trips have taken me from the Utah Canyons to the Sand Dunes at Douglas Provincial Park . My wife is an amateur photographer and we often spend our time in the countryside with a camera. Since moving to Saskatoon I have been an active Director for the Saskatoon Hilltop Football Club ( my second passion ).

Gerald Dewald purchased this bungalow in 2009

Why Gerald Dewald chose Elbow

We have friends who live here. When we first visited Elbow we fell in love with the quiet country lifestyle that the village has to offer. It takes me back to a time when life was much less complicated and hurried. You can walk to the store or down to the lake or just sit on the deck and watch the sunset as the breeze blows through the trees.

What makes this bungalow unique

If you like fishing , hiking, golfing or just a quiet walk on the beach at sunset , you will enjoy your time in Elbow. The people are very friendly and it is a great place just to relax.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've always loved Lake Diefenbaker, and really enjoyed getting to know the Elbow area a bit better. Super cute house with all the amenities; so nice to come back to at the end of a day of swimming and beaching. We took in Rider games at the Golf Club restaurant, the Rodeo across the street, and the Art Gallery show opening. Thank you for sharing your gem of a spot Gerald!

A great home with everything you would need

  • 5 of 5

We hiked and mountain biked the trails there. We were impressed with them. The water was so clear and we had a nice afternoon at Tuft's Bay swimming and relaxing after our bike. The history in the area was so interesting. The people were very friendly. The house had everything we needed for a wonderful holiday. The new addition to your home is beautiful. We had an excellent time and would definitely return to this home again.Thanks so much for sharing your home with us.

Wonderful house for a getaway

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay hear. Gerald had just finished a reno and the house was immaculate . Although early in year we enjoyed the golf course only 2 minutes away. We also had a boat which gives you access to a wonderful lake for water sports or world class fishing. You can also rent boats at the marina, just 5 minutes away. This is a wonderful location to be enjoyed by couples or families. The only downfall was if weather turns crappy, the t.v. offered little live programs, unless we just didnt figure it out.
