We are Kansas City Natives...born and bred to vacation on the Lake of the Ozarks, MO! My parents had a 'cabin' in the headwaters area of the river which eventually was covered by Truman Lake. They relocated to a development near Warsaw, so weekends at the lake were a part of my growing years. We 'raised' our children to do the same with EVERY vacation located at the lake. Now we have the great blessing of teaching our grandchildren the value of family times at the Lake of the Ozarks in the great state of Missouri!
Peggy/Ron purchased this house in 2005
Why Peggy/Ron chose Gravois Mills
This property is very conveniently located to friends and family at the lake and in Kansas City. An easy drive from Kansas City, makes our end of the lake very appealing. Add to this, our desire to have relaxing and peaceful getaways with family and friends...there is no better place than our own place at the lake! Our lifetime goal was to 'have a place for our family' ... praying for a VIEW of sunsets from 'every room', we knew our prayers had been answered the minute we stepped foot into this haven of rest we experienced an amazing, jaw-dropping sunset!! We have acquired a fine collection of beautiful photographic memories that remind us that each and every one is unique and special to the day, whatever the season! Come enjoy them at our place, and ENJOY the view from the outdoor spa as well. We truly believe we have a breath-taking view that is not easily matched in the area rentals! No crowded cove traffic or obnoxious neighbors at our place! And, we aim to keep it that way :o)
What makes this house unique
Looking forward to retirement years, we see this as our primary future home and, in the meantime, see this blessing as an opportunity to share with others who might enjoy it as we do. Every season has its special joys, but there is nothing quite like the blossoms of Spring and new life, or the chill of Fall with a cozy fire to warm you with views of radiant fall color and wildlife activity. Breathtaking sunsets and early morning mist! Come ENJOY the VIEW!!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Enjoyed the dock and fishing--paddleboat was fun. The two grandsons (age 2 and 4) learned to fish with help from Grandpa. Rented a pontoon for a day and cruised the area--ate at the Jolly Rogers and Coconuts. Golfed two courses; shopped at Osage Beach Outlet and visited Bridal Cave. The house was just the perfect size for us! Thanks for the great place by the lake!
