Enjoy this classic fisherman's lake house that was built in the late 1950's and has been extensively renovated!!! Nestled in the back of Dry Branch Cove, the water is calm and perfect for swimming or hanging out on the brand new dock. With 160+ feet of waterfront, there is plenty of room to fish and lots of privacy! Dock has generous swim platform, firepit seating, and sits in serene water that awaits your personal (or rented) watercraft.

The upstairs of the home was completed renovated and features hardwood floors throughout, a cozy living room, three bedrooms, and a brand new bathroom with walk in tiled shower. The Master bedroom has queen size bed and generous wall mounted LED television with DVD. The second bedroom features a comfy full-sized bed and a wall mounted flatscreen TV with DVD. The third bedroom features a twin over full sized bunk bed. Each bed has brand new pillow top/ memory foam mattresses that are so comfortable!

Downstairs, you will find the kitchen, dining area, and a second bathroom that is easy access to the new deck or the lakefront. This part of the house has also been renovated with a brand new bathroom and tile flooring throughout. Kitchen is stocked with pots & pans, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, glasses, silverware, and dishes. Basically, everything you need is available.

The best part about the property is the large yard with mature trees, wide space between our neighbors, and the gentle slope down to the water. A fire pit for family campfires, Weber charcoal grill, and outdoor seating adds to your camp experience.

About Mary & Dennis

Dennis and I have lived in Columbia, MO for 10 years. Dennis is a Navy Veteran and a realtor for House of Brokers in Columbia. I have been a nurse for 17 years and am proud to call Truman VA Hospital my workplace. Dennis and I have been married 20 years and have always had a love for boating and watersports. We took the "plunge" in 2015 and bought the cottage at Lake of the Ozarks.

Mary & Dennis purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Mary & Dennis chose Rocky Mount

Lake of the Ozarks has world renowned freshwater fishing, plenty of activities for families (ie: miniature golf, bumper boats, go-karts, indoor water park, outdoor water parks, and movie theatres), and nightlife fun! This cottage was built in 1958 and owned by the last homeowner for 42 years. It is built on three lots of mature trees and a very gentle slope to the water. When we saw the water view, the trees, and the house, we knew that this was a unique opportunity to begin our own story at the lake.

What makes this cottage unique

We used a local dock company to build a custom dock with a spacious swim platform, a swim ladder, oscillating fan, and LED color change lighting. This is the perfect place to enjoy the water view and keep your personal watercraft close by. From water, the property is just minutes away from Beavers at the Dam, Lazy Gators, H. Toads, and The Boathouse. Sunday brunch at Jolly Rogers or nightlife at H.Toads or Shady Gators are a short boat ride or car ride away.

We had a wonderful stay. Spent lots of time on the dock so kids could swim. House nicely equipped with everything we needed. The deck was perfect because it was shaded much of the time, and it was really hot when we were there. A very relaxing time. Thank you.

Very nice lake experience!

  • 5 of 5

The Lake cottage was clean, comfortable, had everything needed in a home away from home. Even though it rained we were still able to enjoy the outdoors with the covered porch and dock, and when the sun was out we thoroughly enjoyed grilling on the deck and swimming off the dock with a ladder that made it easy to get out of the water. The paddle boat was a hit! We'll definitely be back and hopefully there will be less rain so we can go out for a ride on the water taxi! Thanks Mary and Dennis!

Very nice accomodations

We had a great stay. Mary and Dennis have done a great job on the remodel of a quaint lake place. Wished for cable tv a few times but it wasn't a deal breaker. The new dock was fabulous.

This lake house was one of the most well thought out homes we've ever stayed!

  • 5 of 5

The lake house is not only incredibly charming, but it is functional as well! Just steps from the dock, so it's easy to run in and grab things while you are fishing or swimming. The paddle boat is so much fun too! The House was VERY clean and VERY well stocked. We would stay here again in a heart beat!

This home has all you need for a getaway and MORE. My husband and I rented this home for our wedding anniversary and brought two couples along. We were so please with the quality of the home and the exterior features. I want to go back every year!

There are so many fun things to see and do at Lake of the Ozarks! For food, our family enjoys Sunday buffet brunches at Jolly Rogers, seafood at Baxters, pizza at Pappos, and pasta at Lil' Rizzos. From a boat or a jet ski, you can travel down to the dam (take a left from the mouth of our cove) and hang out at Beavers by the Dam and walk around the strip. To the right, from the mouth of our cove, you can visit Jolly Rogers up the Gravois Arm, or head to H.Toads or Lazy Gators for great food, swimming, and adult beverages. There are many marinas close by to rent boats and jet skis. Mommas/ Iguana Watersports is just two coves to the right and they also have a water trampoline for kids to enjoy. Just a short drive away, you will find family activities such as Pee Wee golf, bumper cars, bumper boats, laser tag, movie theatres and more. Of course, the "strip" at Bagnell Dam offers an arcade, a fudge store, lots of shopping, and great restaurants and night life. There are many weekends where the strip is lined with classic cars, boat shows, etc. There are, literally, too many activities to list for fun at Lake of the Ozarks but these are many of our favorites!
