Perfect location, perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it!!! It was even nicer than we had even hoped for. The bedrooms are far away from the dining/living room so you can have quiet/private if needed. Swimming is great. House is easy to get to. 3 showers / bathrooms! It's a super quiet/calm cove, we loved that! We would absolutely stay again. We went to Bott's farm and fed the animals, made a trip to Ha Ha State park (which was only about 30 min from the house) Jacob's cave was less than 30 min too. All around great house & location

Very Quiet! Nice Neighbors! Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at the lake house. It was a lovely home with great access to the water. The home was very clean and provided everything you will need to enjoy a relaxing stay. The neighbors were very kind and inviting. We had a great time swimming, boating, fishing and just enjoying life. I would highly recommend a stay in this wonderful home. I know we will be back! Thank you!

Great house...great owners & caretakers...great vacation !!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house. Everything was in perfect order, very clean upon arrival and Joyce was very helpful during our arrival. We loved the backyard & dock and enjoyed swimming, boating and fishing. We'd definitely return and hope to next year if possible. Joyce also had a great recommendation for a boat rental for us which was perfect for our needs.

Owner's Response: Great review. This place rocks. The Gnomes and their cute house and garden bring good vibes to the property. Love the exotic animals at Bott's Farm on the road to the house. They love to be petted. Buck Creek Store has the best pizza and deli sandwiches. They have everything you need, beer cave to bait. And just a mile away! You will see walkers and runners all over the area. Have to watch out for them and four wheelers making visits to Buck Creek Store. Thank you. Joyce

Great house with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

This property and the owners were absolutely wonderful! The house was the perfect size and had great views of the water! Joyce was available if we needed anything and super friendly. She provided boat rental information and restaurants before we went down so we could plan ahead! We will definitely stay here again. The neighbors on one side were very friendly while the another couple on the other side, not so much. All around, great place to stay at the Lake of the Ozarks!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your honest and very nice review. All the renters have been good and received their full deposits back. A few times in the past, the outside flood lights were left on overnight and this kept the neighbor couple awake. Most of my renters for this house are families and married couples that are considerate of others. This is the "Lake" where everyone is meant to have fun. Joyce
