About Jim and Angie Houch

Our family has been going to the lake for over 20 years. We have been married for 25 years and value family time. With 3 boys ages 21, 19, and 14 and various sports life is non stop. We enjoy the relaxing atmosphere at the lake. Our family loves the water and boating. We have enjoyed watching the lake change over the years and now vacation there yearly with 5 to 6 other families from our home town.

Jim and Angie Houch purchased this house in 2012

Why Jim and Angie Houch chose Lake of the Ozarks

After staying at various places all over the lake we thought it would be nice to have our own home. With that it will be much easier just to take off and go for enjoyable weekends.

What makes this house unique

Spending quality family time together enjoying the perfect lake location. Inviting family and friends to come and enjoy the house with us making life long memories.

Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the home. It was very clean and comfortable. We rent alot of homes on the lake and this was the first time at this home. We were very pleased it didnt have the usual lake house smell. It smelled very nice. Jim and Angie were exceptionally nice, accomodating and friendly. Love how they painted the dock white, cut down on the heat. Great idea. Beautiful view of the lake. Second day we arrived the a/c was freezing us out of the house. about an hour later a technician showed up to fix it. We were shocked since we didnt call anyone, but he said Jim the owner could tell it was broke from his phone, so we were happy to know that we were taken care of from a distance as well. Loved the home!!!

Great house- bad Ownets

  • 2 of 5

We rented this house for a girls weekend- the house was exactly what we were looking for. We had a great time! We thought the weekend went perfect

Now here comes the bad, when we arrived at the house the oven was on, now considering they hire a cleaning crew and also leave detailed instructions on the fridge, I can't seem to understand how this could happen. Also instead of having the water turned off it was left on, again weird because of the instructions and cleaning crew.

The horrible- We staid at the house for two nights, took care of the house, but received a call that we had TRASHED THE HOUSE- supposedly we left red hair dye in the bathroom sink ( because that's what grown women do at the lake, dye their hair), grease marks all over the sliding glass door and spots on the carpet. I can personally say none of this is true.

My sister received several phone calls from the owner threatinh to take her deposit. After several days we settled on paying $150 for damages that we didn't do .

Please be careful booking this house, I would hate for this happen to you

Also be aware of the CREEPY neighbor, he apparently watched every move you make and reports it to the owners- and most of it is a lie! But this is probably a part of their scam

Owner's Response: It is unfortunate that this situation occurred as we value every renter we have had. In the 5 years we have been renting our home we have only had to request security monies back on 2 of our 68 renters. In this instance due to unforseen circumstances we have not been able to secure funds from the renter for the additional cleaning fees we incurred. There were red stains on several of the carpets and in the sinks and showers. There was puke around the toilet and walls. The renter tried to state that the cleaning person was setting her up. It is unfortunate a renter would have that much disregard for another persons property and then deny it. As you can see all other reviews state we are easy to work with, the home is nice, and have rated us around 5 stars. Out of 27 reviews this is the first bad one. We appeal to future guests to disregard this review and read the rest.

Quick trip

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 7 recently made a quick get way trip to the Lake. Because of work constraints we only had 3 days to be gone. Jim was very nice in accomodating our needs for our short trip. The house had all the amenities that we could ask for: located right on the lake, quiet cove, plenty of room in the house, and all we needed in the kitchen to allow us to cook all of our meals there.

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed nearly 3 weeks and enjoyed every day! Wonderful location on the lake with easy water access to a lot of restaurants, bars and places to cove out. Nice drive to Eldon or Osage Beach for shopping. The drive from KC was easy (we recommend taking Y before Eldon to Rocky Mount) and we towed a boat. House is at the back of the cove, so the water was calm for swimming and hanging-out. Dock has a wonderful swim ladder - just like walking out of the lake! Great 2nd floor deck for coffee and watching the thunderstorms go by. Very well equipped house and newly furnished. All good!

Fun and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We just got back and had a great time! Will definitely be going back. Property is just a described, at the end of a quiet cove. Friendly and helpful neighbors. Great lake location, close to Shady Gators cove. Huge finished lower level with a walkout deck that stayed nice and cool all day, great place to hang out. Highly recommend.
