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 Benton Country. Long Shoal Marina, about 10 minutes away, has a nice dockside dining deck.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I have been coming to Truman Lake since it opened in 1980. As a young man, I spent time on a boat with my grandfather who fished the Osage River, before Truman Dam was built. My grandparents owned a farm that is now below the lake and many relatives still call Benton County home. My brothers and I skied on Truman Lake before any marinas were opened. Eight years ago, my wife and I purchased a boat so that we could teach our children the joy of playing, especially water skiing, on this awesome family oriented lake. 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 waterskiing, tubing and fishing. 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 is has windows all around and is insulated with electric heating. Be prepared to watch a beautiful sunrise and sunset. We have experienced sunsets from Key West to Hawaii-I will take our view over any of those. 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:
The lake view, the stars and the home.

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.
