About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Our beautiful lakefront home, surrounded by water on three sides, sits on a point overlooking the main channel of the lake, as well as a cove to one side. It is a 2500 square-foot, two-story home with three bedrooms on the lower level, and the master suite on the upper level with the kitchen and living room. Both the upper and lower levels are surrounded by decks on three sides, all overlooking the water. Two of the lower level bedrooms have exterior doors leading to the lower deck, and gorgeous lake views through a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows. The master suite also has an exterior door that leads to the upper deck and hot tub, as well as a magnificent view of the lake through a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows. The kitchen and living room are surrounded by walls of floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides, providing for beautiful, panoramic views of the lake from any point in the room. The upstairs rooms have vaulted ceilings with skylights and ceiling fans. Two of the downstairs bedrooms have a TV with a DVD player for watching movies (NO CABLE, SATELLITE, ETC), along with a selection of movies for adults and children.

The house has a dock on the cove side of the property with one covered boat slip for renters to use, as well as a jet ski lift that holds up to 2 jet skis. The dock also has a covered sitting area with benches, a ladder for getting in and out of the water, a jumping platform, a sink and counter area, a small refrigerator, a clean water outdoor shower, and an upper deck with 6 chaise lounges and a small refrigerator. There are outlets on the lower and upper decks for connecting devices such as bluetooth speakers, etc. There is an additional sunning/swimming platform on the channel side of the property that also has an attached ladder. There are numerous chairs on both the upper and lower decks available for outdoor lounging, as well as a small dining table with 4 chairs on the upper deck, and a porch swing and hammock on the lower deck. There is a hot tub on the upper deck just outside of the master suite.

We have parking for cars in the driveway and upper parking area at the top of the drive (no garage parking available). There is a boat ramp near the end of our road with areas nearby for trailer parking.

Our part of the lake is ideal for water sports including wake-boarding, wake-surfing, water-skiing, tubing, etc. (You will need to provide your own equipment.) There is a neighborhood boat ramp just up the road from the house. There are several restaurants and bars nearby, easily accessible by boat, and one within walking distance from the house. We have provided a notebook (that is to remain in the house) that includes a map and information on several restaurants, boat/PWC/equipment rental companies, and gas stations and stores in the area.

About Rhonda

House built by owner. Owner managed. Our family spends a lot of time at this house throughout the year. This is our second home. We have other family members with houses in the same cove and on the same road, and several friends with houses in the area as well.

Why Rhonda chose Lake of the Ozarks

Our property is located on a part of the lake where the water is usually pretty calm and the area is not typically crowded. My husband's family has had a house here in this cove for about 40 years. There are now 3 family houses in the neighborhood. His family has a tradition of meeting here at the lake every summer for a family vacation together. This is something we look forward to every year.

What makes this house unique

We absolutely love the views from our home. And we love this calm, quiet part of the lake. It is such a peaceful atmosphere to us that we feel so relaxed when we're there, and so rejuvenated when we leave.

Michigan Ozark Lovers

  • 5 of 5

We grew up in the KC area, moving to Michigan 30 years ago but still try to get back annually. We have always loved Lake of the Ozarks, finding Rhonda's lake house in 2013 and coming back again 2014. The house is wonderful, offering beautiful views from a spacious family room and wrap around deck. The entire family has really enjoyed this house, Rhonda has been great to work with and we can't wait to come back again...

The House sits on a point with a view that is spectacular. There's a wonderful deck across the back with comfortable chairs to sit and enjoy the evening breeze and watch the sunset. The house is well equipped with all cooking and cleaning needs and perfect for entertaining with a large dining table set in a glass enclosed alcove. Fishing supplies are available for use as well as other water equipment. The bedrooms have very comfortable beds. And Rhonda was a real pleasure to work with and went out of her way to make sure things were taken care of before our arrival which made our stay that much more pleasurable. Thanks Rhonda.

Awesome Home for "Family Vacation"

  • 5 of 5

Our family has visited the Lake of the Ozark area almost every summer since the kids have been very young. As our children grew from youngsters to now adults, they always looked forward to the week of "Family Vacation". Now as their families are growing, it has taken us to a higher level of needing more space. The Lakefront Home in Edwards, Missouri was Awesome. I have to admit I was a little hesitant, without knowing where we were heading and trusting that the information given was legitimate. Well, NO WORRIES, it was all it was described to be and even more. My husband, kids, grandkids and myself were a little nervous getting to the final destination on a gravel path but the home on the water with a fabulous dock area was outstanding. We took two ski boats, two wave runners and three kayaks. There was room for them all. The dock was equipped with a paddle boat which was also another means of entertainment. The docking station for the two wave runners was unbelievably convenient, so slick and easy to use. The calm cove was exceptional to be able to just float, swim and fish from with the comforts of the home right there. We usually would leave our area to find a calm cove to spend the day at in previous years. Here we did not need to leave. It was fabulous. The owners thought of it all when they built, including putting in the hot tub which was an evening entertainment spot and the infamous "jump" ladder that was like the high diving board for those who dared, which of course once they tried, they were hooked to go again. The huge wrap around deck on two levels with the windows that gave a brilliant view were an additional feature that gave the home a total feeling of openness. The large kitchen table was great for our big family meals in a kitchen supplied with every item one would need to cook. Our family is big on enjoying the outdoors and cooking at our location instead of "going out to eat". The very helpful owners did inform us ahead of time that it would be a distance into the town-Lake of the Ozarks, just under an hour, for food, groceries or entertainment. We were prepared for that, as we made our grocery stop before getting to our destination. As far as entertainment - we had it all - right here at this wonderful home with a great location. We would recommend to anyone to give it a try - you will not regret it staying at this Lakefront Home that we made our Home for our week of "Family Vacation"!

Great time in the Ozarks!

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from a fantastic week at the lake. This was voted by my family to be in the top two of our very best vacations. What put it at the top was the lovely home that we were privileged to enjoy. The property was just as beautiful as described on line and the home provided so many things that many others don't, such as nice bedding, a well supplied kitchen, a huge stack of beach towels (that I was grateful to not have to add to our very full car), an empty boat slip, extra buoys to protect our jet skis and floats to play on in the water. We felt like we had the cove completely to ourselves and found great places to tube and wake board close to the house. We fished off of the docks and everyone caught at least one fish. Our group consisted of our family of five and two significant others,16 years and older. Sleeping arrangements worked out well and there was plenty of space for all of us. We all put crazy busy lives away for the week and I even tried wake boarding. (I have the bruises to prove it). :) We would definitely recommend this lovely vacation retreat!!

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family had an excellent week long stay and we would definitely recommend this property. Our kids had a great time swimming and fishing. Wish we had stayed here on our previous trips to the lake.

Awesome Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of our favorite destinations so far! We have 3 boys, ages 6, 14, 16 - and they did not want to leave. The location is very secluded, quiet and peaceful. On our drive in, we saw several deer and even a fox. The house was very clean, spacious and filled with all the amenities we needed. There is no grassy area where the kids could run around, so we spent most of our time on the deck and the pier. Other than 2 bar restaurants (great popcorn at Fatties!), there is nothing around the area - so we purchased groceries to last us the entire week. We rented a boat from Pirates Point for 4 days and it worked out great. For the most part, we swam off the pier (it's deep so if you have little ones, bring life jackets - and noodles for the adults), fished and went tubing and skiing (I think we had the lake to ourselves during the week). I enjoyed relaxing and reading on the deck - the view in the morning is glorious. Ha Ha Tonka park is great to explore on a cooler day - there are over 300 stairs to climb to the castle. If you travel by boat, there is great swimming area where the cool water of the natural springs flows into the lake. On our way out, we went to Bridal Cave - which was fascinating. Make sure you take the time to look at the wedding photos. We would go back again - and plan to recommend this rental to our family and friends. Awesome rental!

Owner's Response: Lucy, Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review. We are so glad that you and your family enjoyed your vacation! We appreciate the feedback, as it helps us to make changes and updates based on your experience renting from us. You made a suggestion to future renters to bring life jackets and noodle floats... I think we will look into providing those items ourselves in the future. At one time we did have a few of the noodles, but those have disappeared over time. We did leave 3 big floats on the dock... I hope you found those to use. We appreciate you taking good care of our home while you were there and hope that you will stay with us again if you vacation at Lake of the Ozarks in the future!

There are several miles of near-by trails for four-wheeling, mountain-biking and hiking - bring your own equipment.

There is a small market about 20 minutes from the house that has basic grocery items. The nearest grocery store is about 45-50 minutes away. We recommend making a stop to stock up on groceries prior to arriving at the house.

There is a marina across the lake, about 5 minutes from the house by boat. They have a small convenience store.

There is a bar/restaurant at the back of our cove, as well as one across the cove. There are a few restaurants about a 15-30 minute drive or boat ride away. Other restaurants are in Warsaw - about a 45 minute drive, in Camdenton - about a 45-50 drive, or in Osage - about a 1 hour drive.
