About the property

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps Max 6)

Thinking about a trip to the Ozarks? Look no further! A fabulous Wi-Fi enabled, FULLY FURNISHED lake vacation is just a couple of hours down the road.

Whether you need a family vacation or a getaway, this fabulous 3 Bedroom 2 Bathroom fully furnished property is pet friendly with a garage and a deck and boat lift!

PLEASE NOTE: The home is situated on the 2nd tier up the hillside above another home over looking the lake. It's 200 feet to the water down the easement. IT IS NOT PLACED DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF THE WATER.

This is an ideal vacation getaway destination on Beautiful Lake of the Ozarks. The master bedroom has a queen bed, the 2nd bedroom has a full size bed and the 3rd bed room has a bunk bed with a full size bed on the lower/and a twin size bed on the upper. Catch the sunrise from the deck. View the lake from the living room and deck.

Only three blocks away there are camels and zebras on the hillside!! ( no kidding) and horseback riding all in walking distance!! See photos.


We are located on Highway O about 5 miles (7 minutes) from the town of Laurie. In town there's an Olympic sized heated community pool and a community park.

The home's location on the water is at the 2 Mile Marker of the Gravois Arm of Lake of the Ozarks which itself is located between the 6 & 7 Mile Marker of the main channel. You are just minutes away from restaurant and entertainment venues such as Coconuts and The Horny Toad by water!

Bring your Boat, Kayak, PWC, Wakeboard, Skis, Tubes, Life Jackets & Fishing Gear and lots of Sun Screen! Enjoy the swim and sun platform, plus a covered 12' X 24' guest boat slip with a 5500 lb lift. ( PLEASE NOTE THE HOIST CANNOT SADDLE A PONTOON OR TRITOON. ALSO DURING SUMMER MONTHS, BOATS CANNOT BE TIED UP DUE TO WAVE ACTION. THE ALTERNATIVE IS HOUSING THE BOAT A 5 MINUTES DRIVE AWAY AT MILLSTONE MARINA IN THAT CASE.)


Fisherman this is the spot! Deep water & crappie beds attract Crappie, Catfish & Bass for some of the lakes best fishing.

Try one of the many restaurants in Laurie and near-by. Less than 5 minutes away, the newly remodeled Rocky Top Bar & Grill (popular with the locals) a few miles up on HWY O. There is also the 'Cannon Smoked' at Indian Rock Golf Course across from the West Lake Cinema.

Less than 8 minutes away, the town of Laurie also has JJ'S Copper Pot, Season's Cafe and Bakery, Chance R Bar and Grill and may other local favorites and the ole' favorite chains, Sonic, Pizza Hut and Subway.

If you want to go by water, up the Gravois Arm, you can reach the very popular Coconuts Bar & Grill with a swim up bar at 7mm and Jolly Rogers at the 4 ¼ mm. Across the main channel you can reach Toads and Shady Gators.

Shoppers, the Premium Outlet Mall in Osage Beach has impressive savings at Adidas, Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, BCBG Max Azria, Brooks Brothers, Calvin Klein, Coach, Gap Outlet, J.Crew, Nautica, Nike, Polo Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger and more.

Ha Ha Tonka State Park is a state park that is only 30 minutes away, located near Camdenton on the Niangua arm of the Lake of the Ozarks. The area has several caves, sinkholes, and bluffs overlooking the lake. The most notable feature of the park is the stone ruins of a mansion, called 'the castle', which burned down in 1942.

Erica and Doug were such delightful people . The setting was beautiful. The house was lovely. It had everything we needed. They were so welcoming and helpful. The setting was tranquil and peaceful.

I enjoyed the balcony and swimming in the lake.

Due to my husband and children not feeling well, and not being able to enjoy the amenities, we hope to make a return trip so we can make up for it.

Thank you Doug, Erica and Brian , you have a truly beautiful spot.

Vielen Dank!

Perfect for us!!

  • 4 of 5

Owner’s family that lives in the house below were so sweet. Let us borrow a life jacket for our old golden. Perfect for our family. Only downside is one of the bedrooms smelled strongly of urine and had to use frebreeze daily but that is the trade off for staying where pets are allowed. Location and price were perfect for us. Will def stay there again!!!

Owner's Response: That's concerning about an odor. A review isn't my favorite way to find out about it, but I'll take it and it'll be dealt with. Pleased you thought well enough to return. Best!

A great place to vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this property and couldn't have been more pleased! It was very clean and accommodating. While weekends are quite busy on the lake...weekdays were perfect! There are many places to eat and find entertainment by boat and car! Doug and Erika were the best...extremely helpful answering our questions or lending a hand with the boat...etc. While the terrain between the lake and house is a bit steep, one could also argue it is good exercise. We wouldn't hesitate to book again! Thanks to Doug and Erika for all your kindness!!

Rick, Kim and KC.

Great vacation at the lake.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the lake, swimming, boating, tubing. We rented a boat from Captain Mike’s by the dam. Doug and Erika were very friendly and kind. I love the bedrooms. The beds are comfortable. I recommend replacing the mattress in 2nd bedroom upstairs as it caves to the middle. The beds in the master bedroom downstairs and the bunk beds are very comfortable. The Canyon BBQ restaurant was very good. Pizza Hut was nearby. Thank you so much for a great vacation.

A great home with friendly neighbors.

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time at this home. You do get a workout coming backup from the lake but not to bad. Amazing view of the lake from the house. Home owner was easy to work with and very helpful. Will rent again.

Just okay, price is inline for the unit

  • 3 of 5

Upon entering the unit you are met with a really strong smell of musty water. The unit has had some updates since the pictures were taken. The air worked great during the day, but would shut off at night and got up to near 80 degrees. We actually cut our trip a day short due to this issue. The owners dad lives just down on the first tier and was very helpful and nice.

Owner's Response: Yes, apologies again for that situation with the AC. Brand new unit, bizarrely stopped working at night the HVAC guy was initially stumped. It lead to that odor. All resolved now. Traveler was refunded for the night they didn't stay.
