On the lake, The Lake House’s new lifeguarded lake swim area allows guests of all ages to cool off along the resort’s shore. For more active pursuits, guests can take water bikes and pedal boats for up to four people out for a spin. Wake surf charter options, including guidance from professional instructors, will come soon, and favorites from previous seasons making a return include captained cruises, sailing excursions, kayaks, canoes and paddle boards.
