Eldon House Rental Photos and Description

2200 sf, 2 living areas, screened porch, covered patio, firepit, basketball goal

Completely remodeled home that comes with its very own treehouse & lakeside trampoline! Everything is complete to make this home shine including entry foyer with built-ins, hardwood floors, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances & new fixtures throughout. This home lives LARGE with 2 living areas, 4 Bedrooms & 320 sq. foot of screened porch with patio below..there is even a loft for the kids to get away to by climbing the handmade 'skateboard' ladder! Outside will not disappoint with a newer dock, limestone landscaping, lakeside patio, fire pit, basketball goal, additional storage & TONS of parking for everyone to visit.

Outdoor living and logging dock time is what this property is all about. The boat dock is concrete with a 12'x32' boat slip and a 12'x12' pwc slip. Shaded area for seating and a swim platform with full sun all day. There is 16' of water at the end of the dock. Below the dock is littered with crappie beds and fish habitat that we have worked on for over 7 years. It's dialed in now, so if dock fishing is your thing, there is no better spot. Crappie, bass, catfish all live, troll, and scavenge our dock. The neighbor feeds the channel cat, sunfish, and carp from his deck.

If wetting a line isn't your thing there is still plenty of fun to be had. Swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, or just floating around. The water is calm and quiet for little swimmers. The hammock on the dock is inviting. With cove protection there is little wake or wind which makes boat docking a synch, yet the Main Channel can still be seen from the dock for checking boat traffic or just watching the cruisers and go fast boats buzz by.

The lakeside of the home offers the dock, seawall walkway, trampoline, tree house, and beautiful landscaping rocks. From the dock it will be easy to watch the kids both offshore and onshore.

The property is located on the Northshore at the 2 Mile Marker. This is the closest shoreline to the St. Louis area with easy access off Highway 54. Boating on the lower mile markers (1-6) close to the Bagnell Dam has become the new best kept secret due to the development of the Gravois Arm waterfront restaurants Coconuts, Jolly Rogers, Bumps, & Jerk Shack as well as H. Toads, Shady Gators, & Lazy Gators on the 7 MM. This has cut off boat traffic near the 6 MM and opened said lower mile markers up for great boating while remaining right in the middle of all the desirable amenities the area has to offer.

The immediate area offers great boating in Birdsong Hollow Cove, a great ski cove. Village Marina and The Boathouse offer dining and first class marina. The Boathouse has indoor and outdoor seating with a heated pool and is a popular spot for locals. The marina offers boat/pwc rental, towables rental, boat launch, gas dock, gear shop, etc. Check out the website link. The restaurant/marina is within walking distance by land or limp around the corner by lake.

Osage National is the closest golf course. Being an avid hacker Osage is my favorite track. I've been a member for several years and the course has never been in better shape thanks to excellent course management.

About Travis DeMott

We are a family of lake rats.

Travis DeMott purchased this house in 2007

Why Travis DeMott chose Missouri

The Midwest is where we want to be. So what better place to live than at the Lake of the Ozarks.

What makes this house unique

Being full timers with children we have fine tuned this property for lake living and family fun. Quite water. Great crappie fishing. Cove location with main channel view. Walking distance to one of the most popular lakeside restaurants/marinas, The Boathouse/Village Marina.

Great Ozark Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this place! The house was very clean and neat, kitchen well-stocked, plenty of activities to do just at the house. The owners obviously care about the property and their guests' stay...so thank you! It was a great place to spend time with family and make memories...we would recommend it to anyone!

Beautiful home, very enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of women in our 50's & 60's who try to get together once a year just to spend time together and catch up on what's going on in each others lives and families. This was a wonderful place to just have a good time without interruption! Would be great for family also, my grandchildren would love this place!

Great lake house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at this beautiful lake house! Great location by land and water. The house was very clean, well decorated and had plenty of towels. The cove was very clean and safe for swimming. We spent a lot of time on the dock fishing, swimming and sun bathing. Our teenage kids had great time! We would definitely recommend this property to others!

We couldn't have stayed in a better house for two families. Kid friendly, calm cove for swimming.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the Demott's house. We had two families share the house, four kids under 7 years old, and two teenage girls. The cove was calm and safe for our little swimmers. Jumping off the dock was probably their favorite thing to do. All the outside areas were fun. The kids enjoyed feeding the bluegills, walking the shore walkway, jumping on the trampoline, shooting hoops, hanging out in the treehouse, and a big water balloon fight in the driveway.

We ate most of our meals at the house. There were plenty of places to sit and all the kitchen supplies you could ever need. The teenagers really liked the basement as they were able to get away from the little ones here and there. We found the house very clean.

We had two huge storms come through during our stay so the screened in porch was a highlight for the adults. Several people in our house relaxed on the swinging bed at some point in our trip.

We brought a small ski boat on the trip and we thought the location on the lake was perfect for it. Us flatlanders from Illinois found the curves and hills on the roads to the house were tricky, but we got used to them. We had plenty of lake to tube and ski without getting on the main channel. We felt we were close enough to restaurants but far enough away from the busiest boat traffic and rif raff. The Boathouse restaurant was very nice and convenient. Make sure to check out Zippy's Ziplines, too.

Overall, we had a great experience, and we would recommend it to anyone traveling with a bigger group.

Beautiful and kid friendly!!!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 16 consisting of 12 adults and 4 children. The children are ages 8, 5, 2, and 1 1/2. This location is perfect for children. The older two loved sleeping in the loft beds, jumping on the trampoline, and playing the Nintendo!! The adults loved the screened in porch and the private dock. The open kitchen/living room made it super easy at meal times to get everyone food and eat together. Everyone I have talked to since our trip has only heard wonderful things!!

This was our first family trip together and with the amenities and location of this house it was a perfect trip!!

Thank you!!

Our family vacation to the lake was made better by this great house!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! Loved how quiet the area was and even how it was all pavement, no gravel, getting to the house! The house was very comfortable. We liked the two living areas...made having all of us in the house much easier. We all loved, loved, loved the screened in porch! I could just live there! lol The dock was great, my husband had a great time fishing the entire time we were there! And we also all enjoyed swimming off the dock!!

The only cons that we can even come up with (and the only reason for the 4 stars):

No lights on the dock - would have been nice to be out there after dark

The daybed in the upper bedroom...would love to have a full size at least in there (we have more couples than singles) since pulling out the trundle makes it too big and leaves no room to move around.

If that bed was bigger, we would reserve the house today for next year!! :) It was a great place! Thanks so much!!

Map

The Lake of the Ozarks is a large reservoir created by impounding the Osage River in central Missouri. Extents of three smaller tributaries to the Osage, the Niangua River, Grand Glaize Creek and Gravois Creek, are included in the impoundment. The Lake has a surface area of 55,000 acres, over 1,150 miles of shoreline, and the main channel of the Osage Arm stretches 92 miles from end to end. The total drainage area is over 14,000 square miles. The lake was created by the construction of the 2,543 foot long Bagnell Dam by Union Electric Company of St. Louis. At the time of construction it was on e of the largest man,made lakes in the world and the largest in the United States.

Though built to provide hydroelectric power for customers of Union Electric, the lake quickly became a significant tourist destination for the midwest. There are over 70,000 homes existing along the lake, many of which are vacation homes. It has transformed into a major resort area. More than three million people visit the lake annually. The Lake of the Ozarks is unique in the fact that it is the largest man-made, non-flood control lake in the United States. The lake rarely varies in surface elevation by more than 5 feet, with normal pool elevation of 660 feet above mean sea level. Unlike many flood-control lakes constructed by the Corps of Engineers, most of the shoreline on the Lake of the Ozarks is privately owned, and the relatively stable surface elevation has created ideal conditions for private development within a few feet of the shoreline.

The primary job markets for Lake of the Ozarks areas are in the construction industry, food and beverage industry, as well as hotel/motel and water related recreational industries. During the seasonal summer months, the population swells due to seasonal residents and tourists. The demand for workers with skills in tourism-related and construction fields rises during this time. Retail sales fields, health and welfare jobs, office and clerical positions, building and construction starts, along with supporting industries. There are limited jobs in manufacturing. Peak hiring times in seasonal industries are from early spring through late fall, usually May through October.
