Why Steve Loethen chose Missouri

The lake house was built in 1964 with the love of our parents for their 5 sons and their families to enjoy as a summer get away from the everyday workforce. My parents loved to entertain and wanted a place large enough to hold everyone under one roof; a place for reunions with relatives & friends, a place for grandchildren to bond together and bring their friends to enjoy a family fun weekend. Along with our parents, we hosted numerous corporate events for our family local fuel/oil distributorship business. Together we entertained our employees & staff with summer outings, meetings, BBQ’s and countless boat rides. Families had hosted birthdays, graduation parties, engagement showers and summer holiday events. This was our second home and together we all had built lasting memories in this house.

We had the advantage of spending countless summers fishing, skiing/wake boarding, boating, golfing & the women loved the lake area shopping. We discovered the best fishing coves, explored most all tourist attractions and ventured every restaurant or nightclub in the lake area.

Young at heart, 50 years flew by. Our parents had passed, the business sold, somehow we grew older, our kids married, move out of the area, started careers/families of their own. A new generation had created and it became difficult to get everyone together except for the major summer holidays. We had numerous families & friends that convenience us to open the house as a rental for other families to enjoy and share.

Reflecting, our parents would want this home to be used and enjoyed by all and I know they would approve of this rental adventure. So welcome to our lake home! We hope you; your family and friends will enjoy endless summers the Lake of the Ozarks.


The Loethen Family

What makes this house unique

What makes this location different from others is the large private shaded deck with the panoramic lake front view. This is the focal point where everyone gathers together to meet & mingle with family & friends. The deck faces the lake & dock so you can watch the kids swim & do “cannon-balls” off the high dive platform. We have outdoor speakers surrounding the deck to enjoy your favorite tunes or ballgame and lakeside sitting for 24+ with a sunset view every night.

Inside the house we offer 2 living areas that you can separate with one group upstairs & the other group downstairs. The 7 bedrooms also come in handy when extra guests decide to stay over. It's a perfect location to entertain your family and guests

By land we are convenient to all lake attractions; 15 minute drive to the Bagnell Dam Strip, 20 minutes to the shopping centers & restaurants.

Very Spacious, Relaxing House for Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for a large group of people. The dock has space for a rental boat as well as a good area for diving and swimming. It is located right off the main channel, so easy to find from the water. Plenty of spaces to sleep and plenty of places for parking as well. A bit hard to find from the road, but manageable.

The owner does a fantastic job of providing necessities for the house and is great at communicating in the event there are any issues. He is very understanding and will treat you well!

Wonderful Home for Our Family Get Together!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying here in mid-May for a family get together! We had 13 adults and 8 kids for the weekend and especially enjoyed the large deck overlooking the lake. It was perfect for our large group to eat meals and sit and visit. With all the kids 7 and under, having a gate to the dock was really appreciated, and the kids loved playing and running around the various levels of the deck. We are not boaters but still found many fun things to do in the area for daytime outings while gathering back at the house in the evenings. Having enough bedrooms for the couples was really nice, and the kids loved the bunk room. The owners were great at communicating, following up, and being flexible with us. We would definitely stay here again! Thanks!

Relaxing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this home. We had 14 family members in total, ages 16-75. We spent a lot of time on the large deck. We made our meals in the lower level kitchen which was right off the large deck, and we had plenty of room. The kitchen is well stocked with kitchen items. The dock was nice to sit on and the cove was perfect to float in. The safety cone to mark the end of the drive was nice. Thank you for opening up your family's home to our family.

Outstanding value! Huge tree-shaded deck! Great swimming dock!

  • 4 of 5

This was my first trip to the Lake of the Ozarks, and we found a gem of a home for size and value. Comfortably slept our extended family of 22 (ages 2 to 60) and the total cost was under $30.00 per person, per night (after getting the full security deposit refunded).

We spent most of our time on the huge deck and the swimming dock. The basement kitchen was perfect for preparing meals on the same level as the deck.

Bring a big boat! Early mornings and late evenings were good for our 23 foot boat, but the lake was too busy and wakes too big for young kids to safely tube at mid-day. We launched our boat just 1/4 mile up the lake at Village Marina & Yacht Club for $20.00.

I'd definitely stay here again on my next visit to the lake!

Great Place for a Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

This was the 3rd year we held a family reunion at a lake house in Lake Ozarks. We had 10 adults and 10 children. This place is by far our favorite! The house had plenty of room to sleep and eat. The parents spent most of their time in the downstairs kitchen cooking, relaxing, playing cards, and watching TV. The kids spent most of their time swimming and fishing off the dock. Nice size dock. We rented a pontoon boat from a marina near by and had a wonderful time boating. Some of the younger adults rented jet skis. We used the gas grill one night for dinner and the charcoal grill for another dinner! A big plus for us was being able for the parents to watch the kids swim while sitting on the deck or in the house.

We will return next year!

4 Families

  • 4 of 5

This house was great for our 4 families (8 parents, 12 children ages 7-21). The large patio was a popular spot for us to hangout, eat, talk, etc. The swim dock was nice for the kids to enjoy the water without taking the boat out. Owner Steve was fantastic to work with, answering emails with questions prior to our stay promptly and was very friendly and accomodating.
