About Brian Kaldenberg

I've been going to the Lake of the Ozarks every year for the last 30+ years. I now live in Iowa City, Iowa, and I run an online proofreading business as well as an apartment rental business. It was always my dream to own a home at the Lake of the Ozarks, and that dream finally manifested itself in September 2013. I have experience in the rental industry, and I promise you'll enjoy my lakefront home at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Brian Kaldenberg purchased this house in 2013

Why Brian Kaldenberg chose Lake of the Ozarks

I had to find the perfect property, and this lake home met all of my specifications. I wanted a nice lakefront, flat, grassy front yard. I wanted mature trees. I wanted a protected cove location, but I still wanted gorgeous open views of the lake. I wanted a nice big deck, and this lake home actually has an upper and lower level deck. I wanted at least three bedrooms and two bathrooms. I wanted a convenient location for getting around by boat but also an attractive location for quickly getting places by land. This lake home had it all!

What makes this house unique

The location, the views, the amenities, and the price make this home stand out from the rest.

Great vacation home!

We had a great time staying at Dewey's Dream. The location was convenient on the lake and the house was perfect for our mini-vacation so that we could enjoy lake life.

Awesome Week!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful week at the Ozarks and it all started with the lake front house we rented. The house was all that it was said to be. Very clean and nice with a great view of the lake in the mornings with a cup of coffee. House is located in a cove we spent most our days in pulling the kids on the tube.

Perfect Lake House Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had a perfect stay at this lake house! We had a group of two families - the place had just enough space! The best part of this home is the back patio, the dock, and the view. The house is located on the water in a cove that is perfect for swimming. Less than 15 minute drive to restaurant spots. I will mention that parking is extremely tight. You cannot have more than 3 cars, just not doable on this street.

Very nice place! Great location as well!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place. The house was in a great location on the lake for the places we wanted to go. The waves were too rough to leave the boat tied to the dock. We took it in and out at Frank and louie's which was very close. Had a great time.

Another Relaxing Visit to the Ozarks

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed another relaxing trip down to the lake. The house was very clean when we arrived. There was a small issue with the front door handle, but the handyman was very responsive and fixed the issue promptly.

The kids enjoyed playing on the lower deck and swimming off the swim dock. We made several trips to Captain Ron's and Frankie and Louis, both very close, and we spent time on their swim beaches.

Overall, it was a very relaxing week. The house has everything we needed, and we hope to return again soon.

Amazing stay in Sunrise Beach

  • 5 of 5

Dewey's Dream was a dream come true. The house was immaculate upon arrival, comfortable, and well situated on the lake. We spent 90% of our time on the deck and on the floating dock, rented a pontoon for 1 day, and enjoyed the peace and quiet. The kitchen was well equipped and our group grilled and cooked every meal, enabling us to really unplug and be present for our trip together. 11/10 would recommend to anyone planning a trip to the Ozarks. We hope to be back next year.

Our lake front home is located in Sunrise Beach, MO at Lake of the Ozarks. We're located in a deep water cove that is protected and off of the main channel in between mile marker 10 and 11. Enjoy swimming and sun tanning right off our dock's spacious swim platform and enjoy the magnificent lake front views our home has to offer.

We're in a great location for getting to many Lake of the Ozarks attractions by both land and water. Many of the popular on-the-water restaurants and bars such as Frankie and Louie's, Horny Toad, Shady Gators, Lazy Gators, Paradise, Coconuts, Beavers At The Dam, Backwater Jacks, and Redhead Lakeside Grill are within a 20-minute or less boat ride, and many of these locations, as well as many other popular restaurants and off-the-water attractions are just a short car ride away.

You'll be hard-pressed to find a better combination of lake front swimming, lake front views, and easy accessibility to many of the most popular Lake of the Ozarks attractions by both land and water.
