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.

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.

Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

We had 20 people in our family group, ranging in age from 9 months to 72 years. Plenty of sleeping space and the layout worked well for us. We spent lots of time on the large deck when we weren't in the water. Wonderful memories!

Wonderful Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our extended family of 13 thoroughly enjoyed this place. The deck was very spacious and we all spent mornings relaxing and watching the boats. The kids enjoyed the water slide and platform to jump off. Everything was well taken care of - had the supplies we needed and didn't have to leave to go get anything that was missing. Steve was great to work with and we would definitely think about renting this place again. :)

Great Lake house!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 22 adults and had so much fun. The location is awesome and perfect for swimming. A nice quiet cove. The water slide and deck were a great hang out spot. The multiple layer decks were amazing for grilling and hanging out. We had adequate space and ammennites. Everyone was more than happy with the entire weekend and we can't wait to go back soon! Adventure boat rentals is right around the corner and takes no time to get to. Can't say enough great things about this lake house. It was perfect!

Best weekend ever. Came down from omaha ne for my brothers 30th Birthday 20+ adults slept comfortably. Very spacious and homey, kitchens were awesome. Water was amazing don't forget a noodle. Everything you could ask for in a place to stay. Owner said indestructible, he was correct. Plenty of towel and linens. Rented a couple boats from the marina close by. PERFECT for all occasions. Looking forward to returning.

Happy Family

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this home over and over again for many years and have always had a blast!! it is perfect for family reunions, several families coming down to the lake together, and just a big family that ends up with extra kids like we have!!! We have had 4 families come down several years and each family gets their own bedroom PLUS the kids can all have all the boys in one room and/or all the girls in one room TOO! so it's sleepover fun for all the kids and mom and dad still get the privacy of their own room.

It has the most beautiful view you can imagine of the lake, it's really close to the water, parents can sit on the patio and see their kids swimming the whole time. Kids have a blast on the slide off the dock, a place to rent boats and wave runners is right around the corner, and it's all so convenient to the Outlet Mall, the dam, all the fun stuff to do on the lake. I can't imagine more fun for a family -- that's why we keep coming back year after year!! I've always taken a couple of "girls night out" trips down with friends and that was a blast too! Just something for everyone! Great owners, so friendly and helpful, best place on the lake!!

We just returned from our 2nd year in this house. We had 21 people in our group and comfortably slept everyone. We spend ALL our time on the awesome deck, when not out in the boat. Close to a marina and great location. We will definitely go back.
