About Don & Jennifer Hubbs
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 Don & Jennifer Hubbs chose Clinton
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.
What makes this House unique
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.

Such a Relaxing Getaway!
We stayed 2 different times so far this year once in April and recently in July and we hope to come back in October. Our crew of 6 (3 teens our 2 yr old grandson, my wife and I) felt so relaxed at this home. Everything about this lakehouse is amazing! The view, the deck, and the 4 season porch is outstanding. They also made some recent upgrades to the home of a firepit and glass paneled railing around the deck which shows that Don and Jennifer want to make sure your stay is as enjoyable as possible. Yes this home doesn't have wifi or cable tv but not having those features makes it easier to relax, enjoy the scenery and reconnect with the ones you love.
Loved this home!
We loved our time at this home and did not want to leave. Very comfortable & plenty of space for 4 people. Next time we will bring our grandchildren as they would love it!! This is the 4th time we’ve stayed at a home away & this was the best!!
Summer Vacation at the Lake
Our family had a wonderful time at your lake home. Well equipped kitchen. Soft beds and towels. Porch was great for kiddos legos etc and having sleepovers w nana and papa. Plus the great view of the lake. I'd love to sit on the deck in the fall. We will be back!
Great Get Away
We had a great stay. It's an easy drive from KC. The house is beautiful & the swimming pond was a nice surprise.
Lovely Place to Stay!!
We loved our stay! The view of the lake is beautiful and we felt very at home in the coziness of the cabin. Very nicely decorated, great beds and loved the soft towels! Having a washer and dryer was nice for washing our swim suits and beach towels at the end of the day. It was a very warm weekend outside but stayed plenty cool when we came in and was impressed with the air temp on the sleeping porch! We saw deer every day and even had an eagle fly over one morning! Had the BEST fishing experience EVER!!! Will definitely try to stay here again!
We thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay. The home is immaculate with beautiful touches--many large windows, a magazine-quality master bath, a skylight, and excellent linens and mattresses. We divided our time between lounging on the sunny deck, reading in the living room, and watching a little late-night TV on the sleeping porch. The kitchen was pleasant to cook in, with windows that view full birdfeeders with constant visitors. The view from the house must be one of the best on Truman Lake. We enjoyed bird- and boat-watching with the binoculars on the mantle. We walked around the neighborhood, down to the boat launch and around the bay. At the state park, we walked trails and explored the beach.
It really warms our heart when our guests let us know that they appreciate out lake home. Thank you for your kind review.
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.
