Book now for 2015 dates at 2014 prices! The Lily Pad (see website link below for photos and video) is a beautiful lakefront home on Horseshoe Bend in Lake Ozark (8 Mile Marker by water). You will enjoy a panoramic view of the lake the minute you walk through the front entrance. With its great view, nice cove setting, and comfortable furnishings, this home can sleep up to 14 people, but it is also a perfect setting for a smaller group of friends and family to make memories that will last a lifetime.
The master bedroom has a view of the lake from your king-sized bed or from the bedroom's screened balcony. There is also a flat screen TV, DVD player, and his and her closets. It adjoins the full bathroom with dual sinks and separate tub and shower. There are four other bedrooms, 3 of which are on the upper level: one with a queen bed and another with both queen and double beds each with entrances to the second full bathroom. The final bedroom on the upper level has its own private entrance from the outside or access through the master bathroom or from the master bedroom via the lake-facing balcony. This is an ideal room for kids with its full-sized bed and twin bunk beds, TV/DVD combo with remote if they want to bring games. The lower level bedroom has easy access to the living room, wet bar, kitchen, and dining areas and features a queen bed
and flat screen TV.
The living room is large and open with plenty of comfortable seating. Sit and read, watch TV or a movie on the DVD player, or simply enjoy the view of the lake. Enjoy a drink at the wet bar or grab a game or a deck of cards to enjoy some time with friends.
The kitchen opens nicely to the dining room area and has a breakfast bar and two tables for dining which creates seating for up to 12. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a laundry room with full-sized washer and dryer. Home is also equipped with high speed internet.
The deck is roomy and has a gas BBQ waiting for those juicy steaks, burgers or chicken. Take a few steps down to the gently sloping lot and stroll down to the private, two well, covered dock. One slip is 10x28 and the other is 10x24 (note: the boat lift has been removed so both slips are now available for guest use). There is plenty of room on the swim platform for relaxing and taking in the sun.
The Lily Pad is within hopping (i.e. walking) distance to The Horny Toad Complex/Camden on the Lake and Shady Gators -- the well known 7-mile cove restaurants & nightlife. It is close to golf (Season's Ridge), other restaurants (Ruthie D's, Lil Rizzo's, Blue Heron to name a few), fun attractions, and shopping. There is parking for up to 8 cars (or room for trailers). Additional parking is available closer to the road.
We have been so fortunate to find several great families who choose The Lily Pad year after year for their family vacation. it is not uncommon to have 3-generations of a family book the home for a great family vacation at the lake. The Lily Pad is a place where the entire family can gather for a great, memorable vacation. We are blessed to have so many repeat guests!!!!
Other times our guests include a group of great friends who meet at The Lily Pad for boating or golf vacations. We are also fortunate to have several groups like this who tend to come back to The Lily Pad year after year. We truly appreciate that loyalty and have enjoyed having these great groups of friends at The Lily Pad so many times!
We hope all of you love the home as much as we do.

Why Mike Woolsey chose Lake Ozark
When looking for our ideal lake property, several things were important to us. We really wanted a home that offered a great lake view from the moment you walk through the front door. However, these big views usually come from homes located on the main channel and we did not want rough water. We found you often sacrificed the nice view to get teh smooth water -- we wanted both! it was important to us to have a dock in smoother water, a place where you could hang out in the water, swimming off the dock, without the rough water that comes with a main channel location. Finding that big lake view, yet being located in a cove with smooth water at the dock was actually not easy. The Lily Pad offered us that perfect combination. You can have so much fun in the water and never even leave the big, beautiful cove!
We also wanted a place where there was something for everyone to do. Some people enjoy hanging out at the dock, swimming and taking in some sun. Others enjoy getting out on the boat and exploring more of the lake, while some may prefer to sit on the dock and take in the views. Other friends or family may take the car and head into town for some shopping. Yet others may like a little night life, but prefer not to drive as they go out for an evening -- so we wanted a couple of fun places to be within walking distance, but just not too close! The Lily Pad location was perfect for all of these desires. Everyone finds their 'niche' at The Lily Pad.
Finally, a great location by water was also important to us. We enjoy the water by day, but we truly love the water at night. The Lily Pad gave us that perfect location where so many great restaurants were just a quick boat ride away. A night on the water at Lake of the Ozarks is just something we truly treasure. A relaxing cruise under the stars, dinner at a lakeside restaurant, ending up back at the dock at The Lily Pad is the perfect evening for us. We hope you agree!
