Get your lake house vacation rental the most requested amenities just in time for summer. We put together a list of some of Evolve’s suggested amenities as well as our own recommendations and found affordable, high-quality items from Amazon.


  1. Grill

    Evolve notes that “travelers will often book one property over another if it has a grill – a nice outdoor eating space is a huge plus, too." We like this Char-Broil Performance 4-Burner Grill. It is easy-to-clean and mobile, stainless steel, and comes with a warming rack and lid-mounted temperature gauge.
  2. Beach Towels

    Bringing your own towels on vacation can be a pain. Plus, if you don’t provide beach towels, guests might use your nice bath towels at the lake. The Utopia Cabana Stripe Towels come in a set of four, are machine-washable, and lightweight.
  3. Cooler

    Guests will want to bring a cooler down to the lake or on a boating trip and not pack one on a plane. You can’t go wrong with a standard Igloo Ice Cube Quart Roller on wheels.
  4. Life Jackets

    Safety is extremely important to vacation rental guests. For boating and floating activities, life jackets would be great to offer. Not only to most people not want to travel with them, but most people do not have them. The Searns Adult Watersport Classic Vest is U.S. Coast-Guard-approved and designed for men and women weighing more than 90 pounds. Plus, Searns makes a Kids Life Vest.
  5. Kayaks

    Kayaks are great fun at the lake. The Intex Challenger K1 Kayak is inflatable, yet heavy duty puncture-resistant and comes with the oars and output air pump.
  6. Floats

    Lakeside vacationers love to relax on the water. Up to four people can enjoy the Intex Flamingo Party Island with a built-in cooler and cup holder.
