Welcome summer! It’s the time of year when Lake Norman weather shines and the water entices you to get out and play! If you are planning a visit to one of our waterfront vacation rentals, here’s your chance to explore all the opportunities for fun available to you!

Kayaking Lake Norman

Did you know that every StayLakeNorman home is furnished with two kayaks (and adult life vests)? Kayaking is an excellent way to get to know the lake that is low effort and high reward. With kayaks ready and waiting the moment you arrive, there is literally nothing standing in your way from getting right out and enjoying the water. 

Additionally, every StayLakeNorman property has a boat dock and many of them also have fantastic private beaches! Imagine having one of these waterfront spots all to yourself.

Lake Norman water sports

There may be no more thrilling way to explore the lake than by jet ski. South Shore Water Sports LKN is your go-to for Lake Norman jet ski rentals.

Lake Norman boat rental

The ultimate luxury and convenience is a boat that is waiting for you when you arrive at your lakefront rental and available throughout your stay. Norman Boats can assist with drop off and pick up so all you have to do is go when the water calls.

If you are looking for charter boat rentals, Carolina Cruising Charters is who we recommend. Captained by US Coast Guard Master Captains, these all-inclusive boating excursions allow you to design your perfect day on the lake – whatever that looks like to you – and then sit back and enjoy! Whether you are experienced in driving a boat or not, having a captained boat means that every member of your party gets to fully participate in the experience, worry free!

To hear more about Carolina Cruising Charters, check out the first episode of our new podcast, The Lake Norman Experience, wherever you get your podcasts. And be sure to follow for upcoming episodes with other local businesses you should know around the lake!

Summer water safety

At StayLakeNorman, we have a commitment to safety and have developed several protocols for water safety at our properties. First, all of our pools have NC building code compliance which includes auto-shutting gates with child proof latches or pool alarms on all doors with access to the pool. We also introduce our guests to a Water Watcher’s program that promotes proper supervision of kids while using the pool. Additionally, we ensure that all kayaks are inspected at every check in and that guests are provided with Adult Universal Coast Guard Approved life jackets.

Lakefront vacation rentals with private pools

Beyond all that the lake has to offer, most of our properties feature a hot tub and/or heated pool. If you love the idea of having both at your disposal, consider these featured homes, or call our reservations team to find the ideal location for your next vacation.
