Another year and counting

  • 5 of 5

This was the ninth year our group has stayed at the Nautical Nest lake house. Although our group was smaller this year, it was still a fantastic weekend. This place looks better every year. Phil and Joyce really work hard to make this property one you want to come back to year after year. The addition of new Crappie beds around the dock made for some great fishing. I would recommend this property for anyone who is thinking about spending time at the Lake of the Ozarks. You won't regret it. Thanks again for another great trip to the lake!!

There were four of us couples that stayed & everyone of us truly enjoyed our stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We all loved the openness & spaciousness of the rooms. The bar area was handy as we headed out to the deck & then to the large dock. We really liked the grilling area & having a slip for our boat. The Prater's went above & beyond for us getting extra life jackets that we forgot & bringing what we needed to deep fat fry the fish. Joyce was excellent to work with planning our trip & we would highly recommend their Lake home to anyone!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The kids had a blast, we all caught a lot of fish, it was a very relaxing stay, and the cove is very quiet. This was our third stay here and we will be returning in the future.
