About the property

Perfect Townhome for Family Vacations. 5-10 Minutes from Shopping, Golf, Dining.

After a busy day out on the lake, come home to a 2,200 square foot townhome, in a quiet cove with plenty of room for the whole family to spread out and relax. There are no noisy neighbors below or above you to worry about.

On the main level is a fully equipped kitchen with seating for 8; additional seating available on the screened-in deck with a ceiling fan. The great room has plenty of seating with a 48 inch HDTV, DVD player and stereo. The bedroom on the main level has a queen-sized bed with an attached full bath. There is also an open deck with a gas grill for your grilling pleasure.

The second level has 2 bedrooms; 1 with a king-sized bed, 1 with 2 queen-sized beds. Both share a full bath. Plus, closets and dressers with plenty of storage.

The lower level has another family living area with 47 inch HDTV, DVD player and stereo. Again, plenty of seating with a sectional couch and reclining ends. Additional table and chairs for meals, cards or games. The master suite is located on this level with a king-sized bed, 2 closets and adjoining full bath. Also, a screened-in deck with a ceiling fan.

Our townhome has many conveniences that most places don't offer. The pool is just out your front door. There are just a few steps down to your covered boat dock and 10 x 24 slip, along with a boat launching ramp. There is boat trailer parking onsite for no additional fee. Close to marina, convenience store, boat and jet ski rentals and the least expensive fuel on the lake.

All linens, towels, body wash and shampoo are provided. Just bring your beach towels, food, family and friends and you are ready for a fun-filled vacation!

We also have Free WI-FI, so bring your laptop, Ipad, PlayStation or Xbox and stay connected.

In 2016 we re-carpeted the lower level, installed a new dishwasher, washer and dryer unit, 50 gallon electric hot water heater and a new larger air conditioner unit.

**NOTE: THIS IS NOT A PARTY COMPLEX. We have neighbors that live here year round. So mature adults and families only please.

About Gary & Kathy Shunkwiler

We have been traveling to Lake of the Ozarks from Nebraska for the last 27 years. We have three grown children, one granddaughter and one grandson so we decided it was time that we had a place to call home when we came to the lake. The 'Lake' has always been our favorite vacation destination with all the water activities, restaurants on the water, golf, shopping and theaters.

Gary & Kathy Shunkwiler purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Gary & Kathy Shunkwiler chose Lake of the Ozarks

Having spent many weeks at different condos or houses at the lake, we knew exactly what we were looking for in our own home. First of all we were looking for space. This townhome has plenty of space for the entire family to spread out with 4 bedrooms and 2 living areas; one on the main level and one on the lower level. We wanted something that was close to the water; didn't have too many stairs. There are just a few stairs down to the pool; and just a few more after that down to the dock and boat slip. So many places have several levels of steps to get to the water. Also important to us was to have a place for our boat and an easy & free way to get the boat in and out of the water; also boat trailer storage. We had never found a place before where you could actually put your boat in on the premises and store the trailer. All these expenses add up if you have to pay someone to put your boat in and to store your trailer. With our townhome, all of that is easily accessible at no additional charge.

What makes this townhome unique

Another unique benefit of our townhome is that it is close to GlenCove Marina where you can rent boats and jet skis. They also have a convenience store and fuel. So if you don't have your own boat or just want to take a jet ski out for the day, it is close by.

Perfect for large family!!!

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our recent vacation at Bentwood Condos. Highlights were: (1) the large accommodations for our extended family - 4 bedrooms/3 baths were perfect, (2) the clean pool and shaded area next to the pool for those not wanting to sit in the sun, (3) the dock space for our boat, (4) the swimming in the quiet cove behind the boat, (5) the location is easy to get to by land and close to things to do, (6) the location is good on water too - close to good restaurants and things to do, (7) parking is great - right in front of the condo for everyone in the family. Because the condo association is small, the pool was never crowded and the parking was always available. It worked out good for us that the marina was also close - because we used them to get gas for the boat, store our over-sized boat trailer for the week, fix our inner tube for tubing, etc. The only downside as others noted in reviews were the concrete steps to get up to the condo. When unpacking/packing our vehicles it took several trips in/out of the condo and the steps were tough for that.

Perfect for larger group

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable for the 9 of us with plenty of space to spread out as well as gather together We had 4 generations there so the different levels worked very well. Great pool, very clean and quiet. Great location for families. Had everything we needed, the grill and dryer didn't work well was only downside. I would definitely stay there again with a large group.

Owner's Response: Lisa, Thanks so much for staying with us. We are always glad to hear that our guests enjoyed themselves at the lake. After we found out the dryer was not working very well, we replaced both the washer and dryer with brand new commercial grade units. As far as the grill goes, we were not aware that it was not working properly. We had not had any complaints about it until your review. We will look into it immediately and take care of whatever the problem is. After all, "grilling at the lake" is "MUST" for everyone! Thanks again, and we look forward to having you stay with us again! Gary & Kathy

Nice townhome; good location

  • 4 of 5

We rented the townhome for an entire week, July 2-9 2016. Our whole family (10 of us for a portion of the week) was able to stay comfortably with plenty of room. Although the townhome is older, it is well stocked and maintained. We were directly across from the pool which was very nice! There are quite a few steps to get in but that is common at the lake. Thank you Gary & Kathy for sharing your lake home!

Owner's Response: Melody, we are so happy to hear that you and your family had a great time at the lake. You are correct that steps are quite common here at the lake. Fortunately, we don' t have as many as most properties do. The convenience of the pool being right outside our front door is something that all of our guests have enjoyed. We hope to have you and your family back again next summer! Gary & Kathy

Spacious and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

This townhome is wonderful! Since the steps were mentioned in previous reviews they were not a surprise to us and didn't pose a problem. When we got as far as Osage Beach we typed in the address as Brentwood (with an "r") and compared the route to the directions provided by the owners and they were identical. So if you get there when it's dark out and prefer to use your GPS, this worked great for us. The drive in is winding and very beautiful even at night! The home is very clean and well maintained. The bedrooms are larger than the photos suggest. There was plenty of room for the 10 of us to spread out and be comfortable. The bathrooms are all stocked with plenty of towels and amenities, hair dryers and even extra toothbrushes in case anyone forgot to bring theirs! The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our Thanksgiving dinner. Plenty of dishes and cookware. There's a small fridge on the lower level which was great for those of us watching our football there! (Unfortunately, our team lost.) Lots of seating for playing our cards and board games. Not only were there TV's in the 2 family rooms, there was one in each bedroom as well. While we were there we toured the Ozark Distillery. It's a small distillery, but the owners are very friendly and gave a fun and informative tour that even our 12 year old was fascinated by. They have free tastings with or without mixers. We bought a bottle of butterscotch moonshine to bring back to Wisconsin with us. It tastes awesome in hot chocolate! We went to The Wobbly Boots Roadhouse for dinner one night and the food and service were great. Everyone who ordered any kind of burger raved about them. Our young adults had a blast doing a little late-in-the-day black Friday shopping at the Osage Beach Outlet Mall. It's a very nice looking mall and the way it's lit up at night is beautiful. We had lunch at Cheesesteak Jeddy's and it was so good! Not a lot of seating when it's cold and rainy outside though, but the staff were super friendly and accommodating. This house was so wonderful to come back to after a cold and rainy day out. So nice to be able to cuddle up under blankets on the big comfy couches and watch a movie. Our oldest son is stationed at Ft Leonard Wood (about a 60 to 90 min drive) for about another 18 months and I think we might have to make sure we book another trip here before he leaves Missouri! The photos don't do justice to this home! Gary and Kathy do a great job and are very friendly to work with!!!

Owner's Response: Stacy, we are elated that you and your family had such a wonderful time at the lake over the Thanksgiving holiday! So many people think they can only have fun, if they visit the Lake of the Ozarks in the summertime. As you experienced, there are still many enjoyable activities available to everyone in the fall and winter months. We truly appreciate you and your family staying with us and enjoying our townhome. You are always welcome back, and we hope to have you and your family stay with us again soon! Gary & Kathy

Nice, quiet place for the family

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for my family of 6. It was quiet and suited our needs. Gary was great to work with and responded very quickly with any questions. I would recommend it for anyone traveling to Lake Ozark with their family and friends.

Just want we wanted!!

  • 5 of 5

When you're traveling with 3 families which includes 6 kids, this is definitely the condo you'd want. Especially when three of those kiddos are 5 or under! With two family rooms, two screened in porches, and three levels, there is tons of room for every one! There was nothing that was lacking either inside or outside the condo and being able to see the kids in the pool from the 2nd level is great. We've been there twice already and will definitely be back and look forward to working with Gary again.

Owner's Response: Thanks Nancy.....We are so grateful to have you and your family back with us each year. We are very fortunate to have several loyal guests who book their stay with us every year. We feel the pool right out our front door, the spaciousness of our townhome and the convenience in location to so many activities both on the water and by land are a big plus to our townhome location. We always know that our home is in "Good Hands" when you are staying with us, and we sincerely appreciate your family taking such good care of it! We look forward to having you back again next year!
