Owner's Response: This house and property is easy for all that vacation there. The house is well equipped and everything is accessible and organized. The lot is level, so you don't feel like you are going to fall down the hill into the Lake. The dock is nice for swimming off of, our for cleaning the fish you just caught. Kids can tube right in the cove. There is a ramp in the cove to launch your boat, and there loads of parking for trailer and multiple cars. All the deer sightings and the beautiful sunsets are a plus.

This house was absolutely PERFECT & Joyce was more than accommodating. The views of the lake from not only the dock but inside the house (YES, you can see the beautiful view even when you walk in the front door!) were breathtaking. The house was fully stocked with everything we would need during our stay. I will absolutely consider staying at this house in the future & would 100% recommend it for anyone else. It's perfect for every occasion!

The house is located on a very large lot. It is nicely landscaped and there is a gentle walk to the lake and dock. This house and lot are handicap friendly. There is plenty of level parking. The house and lot are located on the 3 MM of the Gravois Arm in Gladstone Cove. You can view beautiful sunsets from the back deck. A water taxi is available to take you to the many hotspots on the Lake such as Coconuts, Jolly Rogers, Bumps Barefoot Bar, the Jerk Shack, Camden on the Lake, Shady Gators, Lazy Gators, Momma's Market, to name just a few. The cove is excellent for fishing and there are crappie beds around the covered one slip dock available at no extra cost. There is a swim deck attached to the dock area for sunning or jumping in. (You must bring your own water toys) There is a quaint convenient store nearby. It is well stocked. It has a beer cave, wine, liquor, assorted meats, deli sandwiches, pizza, and bait. A nearby estate has zebras, camels, horses, ostriches, donkey, sheep, and emus that the kids can stop and pet. Golf and movies are also nearby.
