Winter stay: Great for family

  • 5 of 5

We had a family vacation here with 5 adults and 2 kids. The house is 3 levels, so each family/household claimed a level and we really felt like we had a great deal of privacy as well as space to be together.

We stayed in mid-winter - we wanted a place to ring in the New Year together to watch movies, play board games and also have good access to hiking and bird watching. This fit the bill perfectly! We spent a great deal of time in the downstairs family room shooting pool and watching movies. Hot tub was roomy and great, although it was too cold outside to get in it for the final two nights of our stay.

Another nice thing about this house is that there's a small wooded area directly across the cove - so rather than looking into someone else's dock or house, there's a nice view.

I'm a runner, and I was pleased to find that there's great running trail that starts about 1/4 mi from the front door and runs all 7 miles down Horseshoe Bend Parkway.

It was an easy 40-minute drive to Ha Ha Tonka where we visited the castle ruins and went hiking, and then visited Bridal Cave. Fun fact: even when it's 5 degrees outside it's 50 degrees in the caves!

We spotted some bald eagles on the river side of Bagnell Dam and did some hiking there as well.

The house stayed warm even though we had extremely cold overnight temperatures the last 2 nights we were there. The home owners were extremely helpful, courteous and answered any questions I had.

It was an experiment for us, we weren't sure if we were crazy heading to the lake in mid-winter, but it turned out great!

Will definitely stay again!

Could not have asked for a better time. House is beautiful and so comfortable, the kitchen equipped with everything you could possibly need. Susan and Brad were so accommodating and are so nice. We are already planning our next stay.

Peacefull - Beautiful and everything we hoped for in a vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location on the lake. Loved the outdoor seating to relax and reflect! The house was plenty big enough for 6 people to find a nook of privacy on a week of rainy days.

The accommodations were expected. We enjoyed the hot tub... and the gas grill. We cooked in every night but one. I would recommend this house 100% to anyone. Susan, the owner was so very patient and helpful in the process of renting it for the week. I had a ton of questions! Thanks for everything!

Right on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

We have rented twice on the Lake of the Ozarks in the 2017 season... and this time we were right on the walk out the door and right there is the lake and a dock. Very nice. We did not use the dock as we were there for the Ozarks Bike Rally however, if we had been there for water would have been great.

The owners were very accommodating.... and brought out a flash light when we came in for our stay and helped us park our tailer and get settled. Felt very at home and we received exactly what was promised.

Hope to stay with you again.
