Gates & Wakes

Ski peak-to-shore-to-lake, all in the same competition! This spring event brings out the best of both snow & waterskiing in one dynamic contest. Gates and Wakes was first started by our friends at Superior Boat Repair & Sales and we are excited to partner with them and host this annual event for years to come.




Classic West Shore Vibe, No Matter The Season

Regardless of the season, you can enjoy the West Shore atmosphere and view year-round. During the summer, both the West Shore Cafe & Inn and Homewood High & Dry Marina are in full operations offering an up-close-and-personal experience right on the lake. Between renting jet skis, taking a wake surf lesson or topping off your summer day with craft cocktails on the pier, it’s a hard day to beat.

In the winter months, the West Shore Cafe & Inn continues to offer restaurant service offering an ever-changing seasonal menu, ski & stay lodging packages, and of course- lakeside après after the mountain’s chairs stop spinning.
