The nearest town is Tightwad, Missouri…population 63.... For years, UMB bank had a bank in Tightwad (somewhat out in the middle of no where). Legend has it that UMB CEO, Crosby Kemper, bought the bank just so that he could have checks with a home address of Tightwad. Donna's Dinner, about 3 miles North of Tightwad, serves the best homemade pie in the county. Long Shoal Marina, about 10 minutes away, has a nice dockside dining deck.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: As a boy, my grandfather took me along as he fished on the Osage River (now part of Truman Lake). My other grandparents owned a farm that is now below the lake- many relatives still call Benton County home. My brothers and I water skied on Truman Lake before any marinas were opened. Eight years ago, my wife and I purchased a boat so that we could spend time as a family on the lake. We enjoy waterskiing, tubing and playing in the water. We live in Kansas City but we keep a boat at Long Shoal Marina and spend many weekends in the spring, summer and fall out on the lake. We purchased this house in 2014 and completely remodeled the interior. My wife, Jennifer, a HGTV addict, put her heart and soul into modernizing this home. Personally, I love the old sleeping porch. It has windows all around, two trundled beds and is insulated with both electric heating and air conditioning. Be prepared to watch the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. We have experienced sunsets from Key West to Hawaii-but the view from our deck is spectacular. My wife and I both own our own businesses but our favorite hobby is being out on the lake.

Why the Owner Chose Clinton, MO, USA:
This is the perfect place to escape the noise and crowds in the city. The sunsets and stars are awesome. You will almost always see a bald eagle or two year round from the deck.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Close to several of the lake marinas, yet we are on a quiet part of the lake. Best view within 500 miles of Kansas City and St. Louis.
