About Owner/Property Manager

My name is Russell Vitt, a 1976 graduate of Lindbergh HS. We just got into the taking care of guests business, this is our first of three. Another here at the lake and Daytona Beach, Florida. The company is called Paws in the Action, paws for mans best friend (always welcome) and action for the working part of the piano (one in the house). I am in the piano moving business.

We have tried to address every issue and are currently updating the property. Our first effort was the dock, then deck, then golf cart and garage. We have something fun to do in each room including a pool table, foosball, dart board, huge chess set, a hot tub, TV in every room and an office for those still working. Please enjoy your stay.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 2015

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Lake of the Ozarks

I'm a fan of the 80s and enjoy the look of wood. The house is on a quiet cove yet minutes from most local activities.

What makes this house unique

The Moongate house is a place to relax and enjoy. Please make use of all it offers.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for our first official yearly vacation. We had a wonderful time!! The house was perfect for the 5 different couples. The ONLY downfall was little seating in the living room area. There were only 2 couches so for 15 of us it was pretty cramped. The house was clean and spacious otherwise. The grill is actually gas and not charcoal but we loved that because it eliminated the need to dispose of ashes. I would highly recommend this house for anyone else looking to get away with a large family!

Exactly What We Needed

  • 5 of 5

The Moongate house met the criteria for our family gathering of 4 couples (8 adults) and 5 vehicles. (One couple had to come at different times so they each drove their own vehicle). A 5th bedroom "suite" existed that we didn't need. Four suites contained 2 queen beds and the "penthouse" master (as we called it) had one king bed. Each couple had their own private bedroom and adjoining private bath. Each of the bedrooms were very spacious and strategically located throughout the home that made each of us feel like we had our own hotel room. Truly a phenomenal layout with lots of space in the kitchen, living room, dining room and covered deck (off the living room*) with screens. The dining table easily sat 8 adults by pulling a couple of chairs from the round dining table in the living room. There was enough comfortable seating for everyone both inside the home and on the covered deck overlooking the lake.

(*)And yes, every bedroom has their own private deck overlooking the lake!!!

We cooked several meals and didn't find anything we needed for preparing or serving the food.

I'm rating the home as a 5 because it met our needs, however, the bedrooms are 'dated' but clean. There was no sign of critters or bugs - even on the screened deck!!! For anyone headed to the dock, be aware there are 60 steps to get there, one way. Not an issue for most. Also be aware of the step down from the ramp to the dock as it's quite large. One of the adults missed the large step going back 'up' and fell with the tackle box that ended up skinning a knee, elbow and eventually had several large bruises. Of course we gave them a hard time for not picking up their big feet... :-)

A family discussion was held to determine if we would rent this home again and the response was a unanimous YES - without question!!! Thank you Chris for helping make our stay very memorable!!!

Roomy home for extended family vacation!

  • 3 of 5

This large lake front property worked well for our extended family vacation consisting of seven adults and six children. It was a great layout where each family could have their own room, which was very similar to a hotel room with 2 queens beds and bathroom. Very roomy for all the children and adults to have their own space.

We used the swimming pool on several occasions; it was in an easy walking distance, even for the little kids. They preferred swimming off of the dock. There was not a ladder to climb in and out with so we had to pull them out.

The house is within driving distance to a public beach, mini golf, restaurants, outlet mall, grocery stores, etc. That was very convenient.

Having a washer and dryer available for use was also a great convenience to keep pool/beach towels and bathroom towels laundered throughout the week.

The house is kept "clean", but we had to buy a mop because the kitchen floor was so sticky and grimy. The lower bedroom had black mold on the ceiling from something leaking above in the bathroom. The shower curtains did not have plastic liners. These things would not keep me from renting the home again, but they were very noticeable.

If staying for a longer period, make sure to bring additional items (paper towels, trash bags, toilet paper, etc.) as you will quickly run out of the items that have been left. This is noted and we were prepared with these additional items.

Excellent home for a large group.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at moongate to celebrate a 60th birthday. The house lay out is perfect for families of all ages. There is plenty of seating and the decks were nice. The view was great. The kitchen was roomy to cook large meals for a group. The house was clean upon arrival. I gave the 4 star rating for a maintenance issue. The location of the house is a perfect location for outdoor activities, dining or shopping.

We would definitely stay here again!

Moongate House

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing! The rooms are very large and the pictures that are listed are very accurate. There was more than enough room for the 7 adults and 2 children in our group. This house could accommodate 18 adults easily. The layout of the house is perfect for a large group and there is plenty of seating. We used the kitchen for breakfasts and late suppers as well as the charcoal grill on the porch overlooking the lake. We rented a pontoon down the road which we could keep on the dock close to the house and had lunch someplace different on the lake everyday. We enjoyed the hot tub and the screened porch with a beautiful view. We fed the ducks every morning and evening on the dock. The bedrooms were very comfortable and very large and loved that everyone had their own bathrooms. It was a short walk down the street to the pool, which we almost had to ourselves several days. I loved that there was a washer and dryer in the house as we washed our beach towels every night. Chris was very accommodating and very nice and friendly. She was just a phone call away and couldn't of been more helpful.
