Welcome to Lake Norman

 
Thriving communities located on North Carolina’s largest man-made lake
 
Just northwest of Charlotte is North Carolina's largest man-made lake, Lake Norman. This area is very popular with families and individuals looking to escape the big city. A number of lakefront suburban communities have begun to thrive here, including Huntersville, Cornelius, and Mooresville.
 
These communities offer residents a more relaxed atmosphere — after all, what could be more relaxing than a peaceful day at the lake where you can take a boat ride or dine dockside?
 

What to Love

  • Lakeside communities
  • A relaxing atmosphere
  • A variety of residential types and options
  • A short 20-minute commute to Uptown

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
