Lake Ozark house description

Designed from the ground up with large family gatherings in mind, this 2,800 square-foot lake home has four spacious bedrooms, each over 200 square feet, and three spacious baths, the smallest over 70 square feet. In the main level, a 23 foot cathedral ceiling exposes oak beams and a tongue-and-grove oak ceiling, adding to the spacious feel of the 800 square foot Great Room. Two 8’ dining tables comfortably seat 16. Two full-sized leather couches provide plenty of seating with a terrific view of the lake and woods. The television can be located in the lower level common area so the kids’ movie and game noises don’t interfere with conversation elsewhere. But it can be moved to the great room so everyone can enjoy a show together. The loft provides an extra sleeping area and has been the location of many spirited foosball matches.

The 360 square-foot cedar deck feels like an extension of the Great Room because of the over-sized windows. The deck is pleasantly shaded by the house in the morning and by oak trees in the afternoon.

Our home is built on 100 feet of heavily wooded shoreline and both our neighbors have double-wide lots of 200 feet, offering a nice secluded feeling, while other lots on the lake may be as narrow as 60 feet. You can keep your boat(s) in either of our dock slips (10x28 and 10x24)(...However, ask about the availability of our second boat slip as there is a chance we may be storing our boat at the lake for the summer). The dock also has a 300 square foot swim platform with a six-foot tall slide into the lake. And our cove location allows for safe, protected swimming away from boat traffic, while still providing a wonderful view of the lake and easy access to the main channel.

Our VRBO is also a VRBBO (vacation rental built by owners), completed in July 2008. The project began with the owners, two brothers, cutting down dead oak trees, milling them into timbers, and then shipping the entire frame on a semi-trailer to the lake. It's been a family project the whole way with over 5,300 hours of volunteer work contributed by family and friends. Although it's been challenging at times, it's also been very rewarding, and we're excited to share the completed project with our guests.

Design Layout and Wheelchair Accessibility:
The main level, with access to the driveway and deck, includes the kitchen, dining area, living area, master bedroom, and bathroom. The entire main level is wheelchair accessible, including 36 inch doors throughout, a ramp from the driveway into the main door, and a grab bar next to the toilet. If someone in your group has difficulty with stairs, they will find everything they need conveniently located on the main level. The lower level consists of three bedrooms, all facing the lake, and two bathrooms.

Sleeping Arrangements:
One bedroom has two queen beds (sleeping four). Two bedrooms each have one queen bed (sleeping four). The bunk room has two queen bunk beds (four queen mattresses, sleeping eight) and beneath the bunks are a twin and full mattress that can be pulled out (sleeping 3). If you have children in your gathering they’ll love camping out together in this room. Or, feel free to move the full and twin mattresses to another room to better suite your family sizes and sleeping arrangements. Finally, there are three queen mattresses in the loft (sleeping 6). Up to 26 can sleep on mattresses, or up to 13 adults can each have a mattress to themselves. Your whole party can sleep comfortably under one roof. (For those of you doing the math, the 26th spot is in the crib.)

Location and Convenience:
Located at mile marker 4 on the North Shore, this home is located 15 minutes or less from: Bagnell Dam, Lake Ozark, Osage Beach, HyVee, Wal-Mart, go-kart tracks, miniature golf, golf, shopping, health care, and a wide variety of restaurants and bars. A convenience store, with a surprising variety of goods, is less than two miles away. Adventure Marine is a good choice for boat and waverunner rentals, and it is located less than ten minutes away.

Email or call Scott Ehredt using the contact information below for more information. If there are any comforts you would like to see, we will consider providing them. We built it with making memories in mind and hope it will achieve that goal for you.

Additional Information:
-Central air with separate thermostat setting for upper and lower levels.
-Concrete driveway allows four parking spots (or 6+ if you double park). Additional gravel spots are available.
