Perfect for a weekend getaway!

Review submitted: July 17, 2014   Date of arrival: June 20, 2014

This house was perfect for a weekend getaway for four couples (late 20s to early 30s). The homeowner was very responsive and accommodating right from the start. The house was exactly as she described and had all the necessities we needed for a wonderful vacation. The best perk was the private hot tub and deck!

Owners response: Sufia, your words make this job all worthwhile. Thank you for being an ideal guest, and for sharing your experience with others who may be considering a vacation rental home with us. Come on back to any of our five homes and we'll show you our appreciation with a VIP returning guest discount......maybe next time, we'll even have an opp to meet each other! Thanks again for placing your trust in us! - Betsy Donnelly, Owner

4th of July at the Safari Lodge

Review submitted: July 28, 2013   Date of arrival: July 4, 2013

This house was perfect for our group consisting of three couples in their 30's.
The communication with owner was always answered quickly and professionally. The home was very clean along with new warm clean water in the hot tub...which was the perfect way to end long days out on the lake. We cant wait to get back and do it again!

safari lodge

Review submitted: July 27, 2013   Date of arrival: July 14, 2013

We had a fantastic stay at the Safari Lodge. It was plenty of room for my 12 member family. This house was so gorgeous, warm, and inviting my family had a blast here. Very close to restaurants and shopping plus other things. Both pools are close and beautiful. We loved the hot tub on the deck. It was a very wonderful and memorable experience. Definitely recommended!!!!!!

Christmas Getaway

Review submitted: January 15, 2013   Date of arrival: December 22, 2012

We loved this property, looks exactly like the pictures and was very clean. We enjoyed the view from the deck, which had plenty of chairs. We were able to grill out and save with having a kitchen to prepare family meals. The hot tub was wonderful to relax in. The neighbornood was quiet and peaceful. We would recommend this property to everyone I know.

Girls Weekend

Review submitted: October 26, 2012   Date of arrival: October 6, 2012

My girlfriends and I came down on Columbus Day weekend and stayed at the Safari Lodge. Talk about impressed! The house was super clean and the decor was awesome. Loved relaxing with a glass of wine in the hot tub after a long day of shopping! This will be our place to stay every year for our girls shopping weekend.

An Unforgetable Excursion.

Review submitted: September 9, 2012   Date of arrival: August 25, 2012

I want to personally recommend The Safari Lodge for any overnight stay in the Lake of the Ozarks. We have stayed with many accomodations in the past and this lodge was by far the best we have ever used. The occomodations were easily excessible with every speacial touch you could think of. We held a bachlorette sleep over at the lodge and all our guest were amazed at the set-up. The Hot-Tub was a real nice bonus. Booking and follow-up were also so seemless and Betsy was a joy to work with. We will keep these accomodations on our list of "must use again". Thank you all.

Owners response: Dear Sharon: You and your bachelorettes made for ideal guests and we thank you for your favorable guest comments. Dorothy was right: There's no place like home. But when it comes to weekends at the lovely Lake of the Ozarks, isn't it nice to know we've got your "home away from home" waiting for you here at The Safari Lodge? Come on back and see us very soon. Our thanks for spending your hard earned vacation budget with us. We appreciate you very much!

McDonald Family 60th Celebration!

Review submitted: August 13, 2012   Date of arrival: July 27, 2012

We rented the Safari Lodge to celebrate my wives 60th birthday. My 3 children and their spouses and our 7 grandchildren invaded the home and had a wonderful time. We loved that the home had large windows and a wrap around porch with a hot tub, that quickly became the hit for the children. We were very close to the estate pool and that enabled us to come and go without having to pile in cars. The rooms more that accomidated our large group and everything we needed was supplied when we arrived. I especially liked being able to talk directly to the owner and Betsy was great to work with and very helpful. Thank you for making our celebration on we will never forget.

You make ideal guests and are welcome back with us at any of our five properties anytime. You know the number, so please stay in touch. And thank you! :)

Review for Safari Lodge

Review submitted: August 13, 2012   Date of arrival: July 19, 2012

Safari Lodge was an amazing place for me and my 10 friends. Very friendly environment, had a warm home feeling to it. The resort is beautiful and easy to get around. Location was perfect, not more than a 15 minute ride to places. The homeowners really did a great job at supplying everything we needed to enjoy our weekend there.
