Karis Cottage is truly one-of-a-kind. You will find 6 bedrooms plus a bunk room and 4 full baths on an amazingly FLAT 20 lakefront acres. Karis is conveniently located in Osage Beach, the center of all your Lake of the Ozarks activities. By water, Karis is located at the 28 mile marker of the Osage Arm, in old 'Racetrack Cove.'
At Karis Cottage, there is something for the young and young at heart!

Boat dock with 10x28 slip and 1 waverunner slip
Picnic area by the creek

We call Karis a cottage because it is cozy, comfortable, and welcoming. The home is 4600 square feet with beds for 24 people. The sleeping accommodations are set up as follows:
Bedroom 1: King bed and full futon with master bath
Bedroom 2: Queen bed with master bath attached
Bedroom 3 and 4: Queen beds
Bedroom 5: 2 twins with twin trundles
Bedrooms 3, 4, and 5 share upstairs hall bath

Bunkroom and Bedroom 6 share the downstairs bathroom
Upstairs bedrooms feature DIRECT TV sets. The downstairs family room has an additional DIRECT TV. High speed WIFI provided, too.
Karis Cottage features a fully equipped eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances, double oven, granite countertops, and tile backsplash. The kitchen is equipped with dishware, pots, pans, appliances, and even a Keurig single serve coffee maker.
Gas grill with gas provided on upper deck for your lakefront barbecuing pleasure.
There are several dining areas in and around the cottage. In the kitchen, you will find an 8 seat dining table, a bistro table for 2, and a bar for 3-4. On the upper deck is an additional outdoor dining table that seats 4. The lower poolside patio deck features a 6 person dining table. Your family will enjoy smores around the fire pit which features 2 large picnic tables beside the creek.
Karis Cottage features 2 living areas. A cozy living area is attached to the kitchen/dining area. There is a second, larger living area downstairs. Downstairs is also equipped with a refrigerator/freezer and wetbar.
Weekly (7 night rentals, Saturday-Saturday, will be given first priority.) We will open up 3 night rentals after we secure most of our weekly rental slots.
**SORRY, NO PETS ALLOWED**
****ATTENTION BOATERS!***: Karis cottage sits on 20 FLAT lakefront acres. We love the gentle lakefront. However, the more shallow water is not ideal for some boats. We have a 27 foot SeaRay which has done fine, but if this is a problem or concern, PLEASE DO NOT RENT OUR PROPERTY. We do not control the lake levels....Ameren does. At times during the summer there may be as little as 3 feet of water at the dock.
We swim off of the dock (NO DIVING), kayak, and paddle boat with no issue. It is a great place to fish and enjoy the sunsets. However, we want you to be fully aware of the low water levels prior to renting, as we want you to be happy with your vacation experience. If you need a place to dock your boat in the spring, fall, or winter, you should book elsewhere as Ameren drops water levels significantly outside the summer boating season. Thank you!

Why the Owner Chose Osage Beach, MO, USA:
We purchased Karis Cottage as our family home because of the uniqueness of owning a 20 acre property on the lake. We loved the land, and after fully remodeling the house, we love it almost as much. With the addition of a the pool, it's about as perfect a home as we could imagine. We love it so much, we decided to share it with other families, in hopes that they could create lasting memories too!
