"This was our 2nd time staying at the house for a week. The house was super clean upon arrival and very welcoming. The description of the the rooms, amenities, entertainment, outdoor area and activities is accurate. We enjoyed sitting on the deck, martini deck and dock depending on the daytime and temperature. Since the house is perfectly located one has a great few of the little Niangua arm and boating activities, but it isn't as busy being at the Main Channel. We all enjoyed swimming right of the dock. Overall the lake offers many great activities for every age and interest. One can especially enjoy boating and other water activities right by the house.
To Camdeton it is only a 10 Minute drive, Sunrise Beach the same. Sightseeing is great-I recommend Ha Ha Tonka State Park, Bridal Cave, State Park of Hwy 42, all within a 15-45 minute drive. Golden Rock Winery in Camdeton is a great place to eat and taste their excellent wine. In Sunrise Beach I recommend the Sunrise Cantina and Cannon Smoked Saloon. Osage Beach is easy to get to either by taking the Toll bridge or Hwy 54 and offers great shopping and dining for everyone-I recommend the Outlets for shopping, JB Hooks & Baxter's Lakeside Grill (both offer fantastic views of the Main Channel).
Many great restaurant are accessible by boat-I recommend Captain Ron's Bar & Grill (Sunrise Beach) and The Duck (Horseshoe Bend).
For your everyday grocery shopping I recommend Wood's Supermarket in Sunrise Beach (Hwy 5), Wal-Mart (Hwy 54) in Camdeton or Hy-Vee and Dierbergs in Osage Beach.
Thank you for sharing a great home."

"My wife and I, our two boys, 2 year old and infant, and our In-laws spent 3 days at the Utopian Inn and loved every minute of it! Trust me when I say, if you want to relax, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! The store is close by for the few items we forgot, but the house already had everything else we needed! The weather was amazing and we used the paddleboat everyday for fishing and nosing around the cove. I can't say enough about it! Linda and Jane were so helpful and friendly it was like we had been going there for years! The fishing in the cove would have been better had our timing been better, oh and the thousands of shad not been schooling in the cove. I couldn't help but catch them accidentally there were so many. They were jumping all night! However, we did catch some Bass and can't wait to go back next summer!! Thank you again for an amazing weekend!"

"We had a wonderful time here. The Nervigs have really worked hard to make this a warm and inviting place to vacation. The tiki hut is the perfect place to relax with friends and enjoy some downtime. It is right at the water's edge, so little kids can easily be watched while the adults hang out around the picnic table. Our kids loved throwing horseshoes and laying in the hammock right next to the tiki hut. The back yard is perfect for throwing a baseball or football and the boat dock is great for kids to jump in the water. The canoes and kayaks were perfect for taking them out to look for turtles and birds on the lake. The older kids loved having kayak races from one side of the lake to the other. The home is spacious, well laid out, and recently renovated, but the property is so lovely that we only went inside to sleep. If you are looking for somewhere peaceful and away from it all, this is definitely the place you should stay."
