3 Great Ways to Improve Your Lakeside Hotel

by Carolyn Jordan

If you're the owner of a lakeside hotel, you already know the advantages of having rooms and facilities with views of the water. However, there's so much more that can be done to take advantage of your waterside location. Read on for three great ways to move onto the water and expand your hotel's activities.

Install a Pontoon for Boat Arrivals and Departures

There's something truly special about arriving at a holiday destination by boat. Likewise, ending your holiday with a boat ride can be the perfect finishing touch. 

Installing a pontoon or jetty allows you to operate a boat arrival and departure service. If you don't have the money to invest in a boat and sailer for this service, consider looking for local boat owners who could do it for you. Investing in small local businesses can be appealing to more conscientious guests. If you're concerned about the inconvenience of installation and upkeep, fear not; there are pontoons available today, in new rot-proof materials, that can be installed quickly and easily. The rot-proof materials make them very easy to maintain. 

Add a Swimming Platform for Extra Fun

Even if you're lucky enough to have a swimming pool in your hotel, providing guests with the opportunity to wild swim can be a great asset. Wild swimming is growing in popularity. Providing a swimming deck allows swimmers a place to rest, as well as a quiet place out on the water to relax and sunbathe. There are plastic platforms available that are slip-proof as well as rot-proof, meaning that the upkeep is easy. 

Offer Small Rowboat Rental for Fishing

Installing a jetty can offer you more than just novel arrivals and departure services. A jetty can be used to moor small rowing boats that can be hired by your guests. Taking a boat out for a few hours can be a wonderful activity for couples looking for some romantic alone time in a beautiful setting. 

Small boat rental also allows you to tap into the fishing getaways' market. Such getaways are not only popular with angling groups and individuals but they can also be a great choice for couples wanting to spend time doing activities apart. Anglers will relish the opportunity to take a boat out to quieter parts of the lake to fish.

Boat rental offers the potential to grow the number of hotel visitors you get, as well as the ability to add paid extras or all-inclusive package deals.
