Lake Norman’s Most Anticipated Waterfront Restaurant 2017

Many people were crushed by the news of the Rusty Rudder closing it’s doors back in September, especially since it
was one of the only restaurants in the region to provide boat slips for customers arriving by water.

However, husband-and-wife team Joe and Katy Kindred are heading to Lake Norman waterfront with Hello, Sailor. The pair was initially looking in Charlotte, the nearest urban center to their acclaimed Davidson, North Carolina restaurant, Kindred, but couldn’t resist a lakeside restaurant with its own dock. It’s big, too: The building is roughly 4,000 square feet, with a dining room and bar. Outside there’s a three-tiered patio clocking in at 3,000 square feet and also another bar space, which will become a seasonal tiki bar. “It’s a very unique location, one of the few restaurants on the lake up here,” says Katy.

“We want people to be able to park their boat and grab a quick meal or come with friends and family and linger and share. So the menu will reflect that balance,” says Joe. The couple is going for a “North Carolina fish camp meets mid-century Palm Springs” vibe. Since they’re hoping for a June opening, it’s a bit early for menu specifics beyond fish and seafood, but Joe says “food here will be a little less composed for the most part, and less of a small-plate restaurant.”

Lake Norman residents and boaters are very excited!!

Lake Norman Ranked Biggest Lake-Front Housing Market

A recent article by Charlotte Stories has Lake Norman ranked as the biggest Lake Front Housing Market in the South East. Read the full story below.

Lake Norman HomesThe Lake Norman real estate market is now valued at over $840 million, making it the #1 biggest lake-front market in the South East.

The Fall 2016 Lake Market Report was conducted by the Alabama-based Lake Homes Realty Company. They collected data from 46 MLSs spanning 9 South Eastern states stretching from Texas to Virginia.

Out of all the lakes in the nine states, Lake Norman was found to have the biggest overall market, with Austin Texas’ Lake Travis coming in second at $787 million, and Atlanta’s Lake Lanier coming in third at $567 million.

One of the biggest reason the Lake Norman real estate market is so large is that it attracts a substantiallyIMG_0262 high number of out-of-state and international buyers looking for a vacation homes, due to it’s temperate climate, distance to an international airport, and distance to the mountains and beaches.

The Lake Homes Report also indicated that a whopping 42% of all of North Carolina’s lakefront real estate is found on Lake Norman. Metro Charlotte’s other lake, Lake Wylie,, by comparison, only comprised about 6.7% of North Carolina’s lakefront real estate.
