***New bamboo floors installed spring break 2013... wow! Really brightens up the kitchen and living room... pics coming soon.***
Why stay in a condo, when a charming lake front property provides all of the those comforts with the additional benefits of close proximity to lake, a private tree-lined setting, and your very own 'swimming hole'?
Welcome to the 'Blue Heron Cottage', located lakefront on the Big Niangua of the Lake of the Ozarks near Camdenton, Missouri (yes, that's the quiet end of the lake). Our charming 4 bedroom / 3 bath house includes plenty of room for guests.
Outdoor highlights include a large deck, framed by trees, overlooking the water. This outdoor seating area, under the stars and cedar trees makes for great late-night star gazing. The dock is great for fishing or swimming ... and there's also a stone firepit lakeside so you can enjoy the outdoors around a campfire if you desire.
Inside there's plenty of room for food preparation in the spacious kitchen with all new appliances, and the great room includes a marble fireplace for cozy indoor gatherings. Owners use the place also, so it's well-stocked with all the utensils and amenities to make it your home away from home.
Sleeping arrangements: Master bedroom (with attached bath) King bed (sleeps 2); bedroom 2 has queen bed (sleeps 2); bedroom 3 has 2 twin beds which can be moved together (sleeps 2); bedroom 4 has a set of bunk beds and a single bed (sleeps 3).
Fishing and swimming are available off of our large dock, which includes an open slip if you have a boat you'd like to bring to the lake.
We're located nearly adjacent to Old Kinderhook, so great golf is right around the corner if so desired. And yes, there are plenty of Blue Herons that frequently visit...
Last year two thirds of our guests were repeat customers, and only had one unrented week for the summer, so book your family vacation early for the Blue Heron Cottage. We look forward to hearing from you!
We love spending time at the lake with extended family that lives in the Camdenton area.
Deb Aerne purchased this house in 2006
Born in the area and grew up spending summers here after moving away in childhood. Love the quiet end of the lake, the easy access to Ha Ha Tonka state park, and the custard stand that we can boat to in the evenings for an ice cream!
Nice deck overlooking the lake, lake-side fire pit, great fishing off of the dock.
"We had a wonderful time at the Blue Heron! Everything we needed was there: great dock, comfortable lodging, kitchen, grill and the fire pit for those chilly evenings in the fall. We enjoyed playing Old Kinderhook, which is about 2 minutes away, and fishing (successfully!) from the dock. The owners are great to rent from, and I hope we can return soon!"
We stayed here with 5 kids & absolutely loved it. The owner is very attentive. The bedrooms are arranged well for a couple families. The large boat dock makes it very convenient to bring your own boat or rent one for the day/weekend. The large deck has a great view & is perfect for grilling out & relaxing. We highly recommend the Blue Heron!
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Blue Heron!!! We had 6 teenagers with us and we felt like there was plenty of space. We loved the swim dock and we were happy to have a slip for our boat. Most days we could wakeboard and other water sports right out from the dock. The home was clean and fit all our needs. This place is definitely high on our list for next year,
We very much enjoyed the house, and most of all the dock area. We had plenty of room for the family to relax, swim, and fish. Our boat and jet ski were stored nicely in the well-maintained dock. Look forward to renting again.
Our family really enjoyed our stay at Blue Heron Cottage. It was clean & spacious and fit our needs perfectly. The owner is organized and responsive which made renting a pleasure. We have great memories of time on the lake and watching the moon rise over the ridge.
VERY nice place!!! Great house and the dock is SUPER!! VERY nice people to rent from. Close to Ha Ha Tonka and the custard stand that is just a hundred yards away by water ROCKS on those hot summer days!
Only drawback is at the end of the week you need to leave this great place!
