Out the door of the kitchen is the covered “He-man” cooking deck. There is a big gas grill, a smoker, and a fish fryer. The deck has plenty of built in seating. The big laundry room and a big bathroom with shower are also on this level. The laundry room has an extra refrigerator with a big bin of ice. The leather sectional in the family room makes into a queen size bed for extra sleeping.

From the middle level, you can look down at the lower level into the recreation room. There is a curved wet bar with 6 bar stools, and a bar size slate pool table for evenings or rainy days. Also on this lower level you will find the fourth bedroom. It also has a master bath and walk in closet. There are two double beds in this room. A big deck with patio table and chairs are outside the sliding glass doors on this level.

Fifth year anniversary

  • 5 of 5
This was the fifth year my wife and I and our friends stayed at the Nautical nest. We will never stay anywhere else. The weather this year was kind of cool so it was the perfect opportunity to just kick back and relax. This location in the back of the cove is the perfect place to do just that. It is so peaceful and quiet!! Friday night after the fish fry we built a fire in the fire pit they have and ate smores. The two big catfish (pictured above) we had for the fish fry were caught right there in the cove. The house, amenities and location are all fantastic!! We are already booked for next year!

I highly, highly recommend the Nautical Nest. This was our third great trip and we look forward to it all year long. We have a close-knit group who goes every year and we so enjoy our down time together. Everything is always clean and in good order and Joyce is a pleasure to work with. We look forward to many years to come at "our lake house"

Owner's Response: I do appreciate the "clean" comment. All beds are made with clean sheets. The baths have been scrubbed and santitized, as well as the kitchen. All floors have been mopped and carpets vacumned. Handprints are wiped off of the glass doors, and the furniture is dusted. Every renter is special and deserves to come to a clean house for their vacation. Thanks for this review.

We would highly recommend staying at the Nautical Nest if you are planning on going to Lake of the Ozarks. The house is very well kept and well stocked! Our children range from ages 25-15 and we were concerned that they would find it boring being on the quiet side of the lake. They were so content just staying at the house and relaxing, swimming, fishing and boating, we only went to the other side one night. One of the highlights was catching a very large catfish right off the dock that fed all 10 of us! We all had a hard time leaving. The Praters are wonderful people and so helpful. They were just a phone call away.

Owner's Response: The Nautical Nest attracts such nice renters. I attribute that to all the great reviews that everyone takes the time to submit. Another big fish caught in the calm waters of our cove! Fantastic!

Paradise at Nautical Nest

  • 5 of 5
Our children and grandchildren spent a week with us at Nautical Nest and we loved every minute. The home was beautiful, comfortable, clean, and quiet with enough space for everyone. The kitchen was well supplied and the men enjoyed cooking in the "he-man" outdoor kitchen. Young and old enjoyed tournaments at the pool table. The site was close to the Cinema, many restaurants, shops and grocery stores. It was only a short drive to Osage Beach for special activities and shopping at the outlet mall. The no-wake area was perfect for swimming and the children loved the water slide. They also delighted in feeding the ducks and fish and fishing. There were activities available for everyone or quiet spots for reading or relaxing. The owners were delightful and It was comforting to know that they were local and available should a need arise. Our only regret was that the week went by too fast and we had to leave. We hope to one day return for another vacation. Thank you for your gracious hospitality and for opening your lovely home to our family.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful home and quiet cove! Our four days there were so relaxing. We spent most of our time fishing off of the dock and riding in the paddle boat. Thank you, Joyce, for sharing your home! We would love to come back.

Thanks again,
Ryan, Kim and the rest of our family

Owner's Response: The key to a great vacation is being about to relax. This quiet cove is so beautiful and has Canadian Geese with babies, Malard Ducks with babies, and graceful Blue Heron trying their hand at fishing. The hummingbirds are here buzzing around the flowers along with the butterflies. There are plently of places to explore with the paddle boat. Thanks for the review. Another wonderful family.

Another great year!! This was our groups 4th year at the nautical nest and it could not have been better. The house was again in fantastic shape. Joyce and Phil always go all out to make our trip special. We caught enough fish for our fish fry Friday night with plenty left over. Hope they're around for a long time because we don't plan on going anywhere else!! Thanks again!!

Owner's Response: This group of 4 couples has so much fun every year. They know how to fish and never worry about having enough fish for their fish fry on Friday nights. And they only get there on Wednesday!! They get their fish off of the dock and in Nautical Nest cove. They are a good group to test out the Nautical Nest because they are early renters each year. Glad to hear that it is in fantastic shape. As always, thank you so much for the review and continuing to return each spring.
