KICK BACK AND RELAX AT THIS CHARMING AND ENCHANTING, PRIVATE, GEM OF A COTTAGE, ON THE WATER. Spring and summer are here! Don't wait too long as we are booking up dates in the summer! Imagine yourself, sitting on our new and enlarged cedar deck(April 2014), enjoying your cup of coffee in the early morning or, better yet, sipping a nice glass of wine on the deck, dock or lovely screened in porch, as the day comes to a close. Summer is just around the corner and you and your friends and family have an opportunity to create memories for a life time!
Our guests love our special cottage, nestled in the trees, with plenty of privacy. Your cares will melt away, while watching water fowl come and go, in and out of our peaceful cove. We are located at the end of the cove and it is a wonderful place to unwind. Privacy is ensured as we are surrounded by lovely treed lots. It truly is a special retreat for friends and family alike. Enjoy your own private dock, steps away from the cottage. Bring your boat and keep it in our slip that is available for your use. The water is normally at least 15-20 feet deep in and around our dock and end of cove.
But, on the other hand, a short boat ride out of the cove will bring you full front and center to the gorgeous, expansive Lake of the Ozarks main channel. If you have a boat, bring it and if you do not, there are plenty of great boat and PWC rental groups out there.

At the end of a very quiet street with plenty of parking, our well maintained cottage has two levels with two living spaces. UPDATES ABOUND IN THE COTTAGE!!! New HVAC system, new roof, new and enlarged cedar deck, new sliding doors, new queen mattresses, updated and to code electrical on the dock, new stove/oven, updated decor and paint throughout! There are wood floors throughout the first floor and the furnishings are updated. We have luxurious feather duvets and duvet covers on all the beds and new pillows every year. The fully equipped kitchen is open to the living area, which leads out to the deck. The living space has a seating area adjacent to a dining area surrounded by views of the outdoors. The master bedroom,with a new pillow top mattress which also leads out to the deck, and bath are on the same level. The lower level boasts another spacious living area complete with large flat screen TV, bunk beds and pull out sleeper sofa. Two other bedrooms(each have queen beds) are on the lower level, as is the full bathroom which has a new tiled, large shower, laundry and screened in porch. There is plenty of closet and drawer space in all the bedrooms.
We also have a patio space between the house and deck where you can relax around a cozy fire for the cool, lovely evenings. We have fallen in love with this cottage and surrounding area and know that you will as well. Bring your friends and family and create memories for a lifetime.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: Kris here. I am a native of St. Louis Missouri and have many great memories of days spent at Lake of the Ozarks as a youth. A friend purchased a place at the lake three years before us and we spent time with them at the lake and I fell in love with the lake once again. I have a teenage daughter and she always has a friend or two with her when we go to the lake. She loves to go tubing and ski. We love just hanging out at the dock and using the kayaks and pedal boat.

              Why the Owner Chose Horseshoebend:
              As I said previously, I had spent many great times at Lake of the Ozarks as a youth. And now I get to share it with my daughter, friends and family. We love water sports such as skiing, tubing and just being out on the water. We have two kayaks and pedal boat and love to cruise around our cove. For people who play golf, there are so many really great courses all around us. That is a huge bonus. Not many lake vacation regions have such plentiful and good golf courses. We love the fact that the lake is only about 2 1/2-3 hours from our home in St. Louis. We love to have friends and family down for a fun and relaxing getaway.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We love our property for many reasons. Firstly, it is just the right size and attributes we were looking for. We wanted a place that was not on top of other houses, thus lots of privacy. We were looking for a screened in porch, two living spaces and walk out lower level. We love the fact that we are at the end of a quiet cove so swimming and relaxing are simple to partake in. We love that we can pull our car up to the front porch and load and unload our vehicle. We wanted the Horseshoe Bend area as it has a good property value and is easy access from St. Louis. There are a few really good restaurants nearby as well as a few grocery stores. We really do not have to deal with the traffic and rush of the major route at the lake, Hwy. 54.
