About Tony Ahern

We are a midwest couple with four grown children. We enjoy coming to the lake for fun and relaxation. The water activities at the lake, and all of the other area activities and attractions, offer something for everyone. Our experiences at the lake are some of the most relaxed and enjoyable times we spend together as a family. We look forward to our time at the lake as much as anything we do all year.

Tony Ahern purchased this house in 2011

Why Tony Ahern chose Gravois Mills

We have rented lake homes at several locations the past few years. This area of the lake had everything that we wanted and more; great location, quiet and relaxing, and easy access to all the many activities, shopping and restuarants the Lake of the Ozarks has to offer.

What makes this house unique

You will enjoy the quiet cove for swimming off the dock, or wading in the water off the private pebble beach. You can relaxe on the patio or deck while enjoying the view of the lake or a great sunset. Inside, the home is comfortably arranged for a variety of vacation time enjoyment.

If you want to golf, shop, take in a movie, or enjoy any of the other area attractions or restaurants, you are just minutes away with easy access and good roads.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to let both of you know how much we enjoyed our stay this past weekend! The whole setting could not have been more perfect. The home and facilities are nothing short of magnificent.

The sunsets were unbelievable and we got some super pic's. We loved all the gorgeous pictures on the walls of your home!

Our whole family was already talking the next day about the "next time" we do this. They all commented on both how top-notch/first-class everything is and how "homey" the place felt from the time you walked in.

I hope you find we treated the place with tender loving care, as we hope to come back again!

Amazing Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We could not have enjoyed our stay here more. The house is absolutely beautiful and beyond spacious. Even with four adults and four kids (aged between 3-6 years old), we all had plenty of room inside and out to relax, play, and hangout. The lake was also amazing for swimming, boating, and fishing. This is definitely a trip we won't forget, and we'd highly recommend staying here.

PERFECT for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The home was absolutely perfect. It was big, CLEAN, and had all the necessary amenities.

We had 5 adults ( me, my husband, my son and my daughter and son in law and two grandchildren ages 2 years and 7 months) and the house was set up perfect. My children and grandchildren stayed downstairs and my husband and I in the master suite upstairs. The house was very spacious and set up beautifully. We rented a boat and explored the lake as well as played golf and visited the Bridal Caves. The owners go above and beyond to see that you are comfortable and all is well. Can't wait until next year!! Thank you for the best family vacay ever!

Beautiful house on a great cove with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our stay! From time of booking, Tony was excellent in answering any questions we had, providing plenty of helpful information, and doing everything possible to ensure the stay was enjoyable. The house was in fantastic condition and provided just about everything we needed. The dock was another wonderful feature with plenty of seating area, great boat slip, and a nice beach area which is rare for the Ozarks. We were looking for a quieter area of the lake and this proved to be perfect! Great for our family and kids.

We hope to return in years to come. If so, we would definitely love to stay here again. Thanks to Tony for providing us with a great stay and ensuring everything was set to go for us! We truly enjoyed it all!

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the lake and the comfort of this house gets most of the credit for that. The kitchen is absolutely beautiful with plenty of counter space for preparing meals. The extra fridge in the garage was so nice as an overflow for all the extra drinks/meat we had brought to grill. The private dock is so nice. The kids went swimming every evening. They loved the platform to jump off of and the lily pad that is provided. All the beds were comfortable and everything was clean/well taken care of. The owner was very helpful with suggestions of where to eat/things to do. He called as we were making supper the first night just to make sure everything was fine and that we didn't have any questions. Overall, we don't have one bad thing to say. Would highly recommend this property!!
