How to Bring Water Fun to Your Lake House: Slides, Diving Boards, & More

Posted by Hunter Croan on Friday, March 15th, 2024 at 9:25pm.

The sun is shining, the water is gorgeous, and all your loved ones are around you. The scene is set for the perfect summer day, but only one question remains: how will you decide to enjoy it? If you want to bring some new and exciting lake fun to your Texas waterfront home, we’ve got you covered with these simple but effective tips and tricks.

1. Add a Beach


The biggest game changer we think you can add to your lake home is a beach. The bigger the space, the better.

But why invest in a beachfront over a spacious dock? In short, a beachfront is more versatile. It welcomes the whole family to join in on the fun without any pressure. Even your furry friends can enjoy the water from the safety and privacy of your own personal beach!

When you’re not splashing in the water and taking a swim, pop your favorite lounger out on the sand for the perfect instant getaway.

2. Hop Off a Boathouse Jump Platform

Forget traditional diving boards – if you have kiddos (big or small!), an elevated boathouse jump platform is the perfect addition to your waterfront home.

Nothing beats the thrill of taking a leap or diving into the water. This simple investment easily translates to hundreds of hours of fun for all.

However, it’s important to note that while lake diving is a blast, it can also be a hazard. You’ll have to ensure the water near your property is deep enough to jump in safely. Safety comes first, always.

3. Create Your Dream Rope Swing

Is there anything that screams “day on the lake” more than a good old-fashioned rope swing?

There’s a good reason rope swings are a waterfront tradition: they’re easy to use, affordable, and customizable. Finding the perfect rope swing tree is like winning the lottery for many homeowners.

But you don’t have to rely on Mother Nature to make the magic happen. Get creative and build a metal “tree” of your own for a truly one-of-a-kind experience.

4. Slide Into Summer Fun

Last but not least is an instant hit: the beloved water slide. There's no shortage of options, from enclosed chutes to open swimming pool-style slides.

Many Texas waterfront homes along Lake LBJ have colorful and inventive slides to choose from, but you can always add your own slide to a home, no matter where you live.
