About the property

Remodeled 4 Bedroom, 4.5 Bath, home nestled in the Ozark Hills

The Lake House is a favorite for many travelers enjoying the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks. The Lake House is a beautiful 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath home nestled in the wooded hills of Tan-Tar-A Estates. This home has been remodeled with two Serta Presidential Queen beds in each guest bedroom (6 queen beds), and a King size bed with memory foam topper in Master Bedroom.

The master suite has a full service kitchen with pots, pans, utensils, and 12 person service provided. Full size refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, and microwave. You will find it nice to have food in the house for a quick meal/snack so you can get back to enjoying your time at the lake.

There is a large screened in porch off the living room which is great for enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning, having dinner on the porch in the evening, or playing board games or cards anytime. It is the perfect recipe for a relaxing vacation spot. We also provide a gas grill on the deck adjoining the screened in porch so you can grill steaks, burgers, hot dogs, whatever while enjoying you time at the lake.

The master bedroom is very spacious, and has a great setup with the master bath and vanity area being separate. The master bedroom is located on the top floor of the home, with an open view to the living area/living room below.

Guest bedroom number one, adjoins the living room/dining room, has been recently remodeled, and makes this bedroom true one level living. If you have a guest coming that might have issues with steps, this is the bedroom for them! This room boasts two queen beds, a bath and its own deck.

The two lower level guest bedrooms have also been recently remodeled and have new Queen Serta beds. Each of the guest rooms has a hair dryer and personal refrigerator for your convenience. These bedrooms also have decks with outside furniture for sitting outside and enjoying the evening.

Note: All bedrooms can be accessed from inside the home without having to step outside. Some homes within the Estates require you to enter the additional guest bedrooms from outside. This home has internal access to all bedrooms which is very convenient if you have kids staying with you and they are staying in one of the other bedrooms or if it is raining or cold outside.

The Lake House comes complete with a full size washer and dryer so you may wash clothes if necessary while on vacation. If you are staying for an extended period this is very handy to help reduce the amount of items you have to pack. The washer and dryer also come in handy in keeping up with your pool/lake towels so you have fresh towels when you get ready to head out for the day. You will also find free standing towel/bathing suit racks throughout The Lake House. Giving those pool towels or swimsuits a chance to dry out before the next use.

If you are looking for something to eat and do not want to leave the Tan-Tar-A resort complex, there are two resort restaurants on site with full menus for a great dining experience, Black Bear Lodge Restaurant and Wind Rose Restaurant. If you are looking for something a little more casual and quick, there is Grille Marx (burgers) and Pizzeria 26 (delivery available) on-site within the main resort facilities. When the kids are done eating, they may want to visit the arcade, bowling alley, or mini golf within the resort complex.

***FREE Wi-Fi access throughout The Lake House and we have recently installed charging stations throughout The Lake House. Rest assured there are plenty of options to keep your electronic devices charged should you need to stay in contact with the outside world.


If you or the kids enjoy spending the day at the pool, you will have access to two estate pools, the Cedar Glenn pool (large pool, very relaxing, and you may bring your own beverages) and the Estates Pool with great views of the lake. The Cedar Glenn pool is just down the block from this home.

Please note, you will not have access to the Tan-Tar-A Resort pools, but you will have access to the Tan-Tar-A Estates pools. If the kids or you are itching for more than just a pool, you may visit the Timber Falls water park within the resort complex, or Big Surf water park just 15 minutes away from The Lake House.

Golfing (See gogobot guide under location map)

Within the Tan-Tar-A resort/estates complex you will find the Hidden Lakes golf course. 34 traps of white sand, winding fairways and breathtaking hillside vistas are the backdrop for this 9-hole championship course designed by Bruce Devlin and Robert Von Hagge. A par of 35 makes this uniquely designed course a must-play when visiting Tan-Tar-A. Hidden Lakes is opens Weekends mid-April and opens daily in May. Hidden Lakes is closed on Mondays. Hidden Lakes golf rates are $30 for 9 holes and $42 for 18 holes.

Waterparks (See gogobot guide under location map)

Timber Falls Waterpark at Tan-Tar-A Resort, this indoor waterpark centers on a three-story 'Ozark wilderness' tree house topped with a 6-foot-wide wooden bucket. The tree house is complete with water blasters and lots more interactive fun.

Beware! The giant bucket tips every minute, cascading more than 600 gallons of water on those standing below — prepare to get wet!

Timber Falls also features over 600 feet of water slides (two slides from the tree house and two from an adjacent tower), an activity pool with water basketball and other games, a 21-seat whirlpool for family relaxation, and a lazy river for tube floating.

Its great having this indoor waterpark so close to The Lake House. If you have bad weather while staying at the lake everyone can still get their fix of being in the water by going over to the water park. You're at the lake, everyone wants to be in the water, don't let the weather hamper your vacation! Timber Falls Water Park passes are available for $22 per day per adult.

There is also an outdoor water park within 15 minutes of our home called Big Surf Water Park. Located between Osage Beach and Camdenton you are sure to enjoy the many water activities available at Big Surf. Offering a lazy river, wave pool, Zambezi Falls, Challenger flumes and much more. Check out Big Surf on the web or call 573-346-6111 season begins May 25th.

Boat and Jet Ski rentals/Slip rentals

Tan-Tar-A Resort, which adjoins The Lake House, has its own marina and boat slip rentals as well as a boat ramp to launch your own watercraft if you are bringing down your boat/pwc. Having the boat ramp, slip rentals, marina, gas, and related amenities this close to The Lake House is very convenient. Call the marina at 1-800-826-8272 for availability and rental rates on various sizes of boats and watercraft.

We have also provided a link to Bridgeport Boat Rentals within the links secition of this web-site. Depending on where you want to go on the lake it may be cheaper and more convenient to rent your boat or personal watercraft from another location on the lake.

Hiking/Exploring (See gogobot guide under location map)

Ha Ha Tonka State Park offers miles and miles of hiking trails with natural bridges, scenic overlooks, and a huge spring which feeds 58 million gallons of water daily into the Lake of the Ozarks.

You will also want to check out the castle ruins while at Ha Ha Tonka state park. Ruins of a European style castle which was started in the early 1900's by a wealthy Kansas City businessman and was later destroyed by fire.

Rated as one of the most scenic caves in America, the caves 60 degree environment will feel very refreshing and relaxing when the heat index is 95+ outside. Check out Bridal Cave on the web.

About Joni

We live and work in the Kansas City, Mo metro area. We enjoy getting away to the Lake of the Ozarks as much as possible. The distance to the lake is far enough to feel like we are away on vacation, yet close enough we can be there Friday night.

Joni, whose picture is included in the listing, is our property manager and is an absolute delight to work with. Should you find any issues upon arrival or need something during your stay, Joni will work with you to resolve those issues and make your stay at The Lake House memorable. You may contact Joni at 660-723-0960 for any assistance you may need while at The Lake House.

Joni purchased this house in 2009

Why Joni chose Osage Beach

We have been going to the Lake of the Ozarks for vacation over the last 10 years and decided it would be nice to own a home there. We really enjoy the lake, the activities at the lake, and it is a place the kids love going back to. It is amazing the memories it creates for them.

What makes this house unique

The location of The Lake House is within 15 minutes of just about everything at the lake by land. You can get to the Outlet Mall, Restaurants, Boat Rental places, and Great Night life within 15 minutes. You are in the middle of the lake by water, approximately the 26 mile marker. The Estates pools are where we spend most of our days if we are not on the water. It is so relaxing to layout around the pool, have a beverage, and listen to the boats going by on the water. The kids keep themselves busy playing in the pool. If we get tired of eating out, or want to save some money, we can go back to the house and have sandwiches, salad, or a quick pizza to break up the routine. We set on the deck and play board games, dominos, cards, etc during the evening to relax. Something other than video games, family games and family time together. We also enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning, setting out on the porch, and just listening to the birds, boats, and golf carts puttering by, which adds up to very relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Nice and spacious! However, cleanliness wasn’t top notch.

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location! The Tan-tar-a estates was a cool place to be. We enjoyed the pools and overall loved our stay. Few thing to point out: A/C unit didn’t work in downstairs room, fridge in downstairs room was not clean, kitchen floors weren’t clean. Appliances were all outdated. Coffee pot and oven barely worked. However, again place was nice, very spacious and we all had a blast. A few little tweaks and it would be perfect. Definitely had a great vacation!

Great house/ perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an awesome weekend at Joni's Lake House. The house was clean and very spacious with large bedrooms. Joni was fantastic to work with and always willing to answer any question via phone or email. She made sure we had all the information we needed about the house and arriving to the property. Being in Tan-Tar-A was new for us but the location was perfect. We grilled and cooked a couple of nights and the house was fully stocked with what we needed to prepare the food, but restaurants were also easy to access. There were multiple pools available for our use, the golf course was nice to have on location, and we were able to rent a boat slip at the Tan-Tar-A marina.

After years of coming to the Lake we finally found what we were looking for. I would recommend Joni and her house to anyone and look forward to staying there again!
