Enjoy the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks at Moonrise Retreat!!!!! Gentle sloping lot makes walking to the dock a pleasure. The main deck on the house faces East, giving you ample shade to enjoy the HOT summer afternoons and evenings looking at the lake. Sunseekers enjoy the wrap around deck. If you happen to be here during a Full moon the Moon rising over the lake is a spectacular sight.
Ready & available when you are!! Use for weekend winter retreat as well as Summer Fun at the lake. Escape the city to relax in our quiet country setting. 1,800 sq. ft. home on the water in a small calm water cove at the 6.5 Mile Marker of the Big Niangua Arm of the Lake of the Ozarks.
If you like the outdoors, you'll really enjoy the wrap around deck overlooking the lake with ample eating and seating areas and gas grill. There is a covered patio on lower level overlooking the lawn and sandbox area. You will love the dock with boat slip, fish cleaning sink, swim platform & slide.
We live next door where we have a sand beach. The sand beach, docks, swim area, slide are shared by us and the guests renting Moonrise Retreat. At anytime some of our 14 grandchildren might be visiting.
We are located on the Big Niangua Arm of the Lake. Windermere Conference Center is in the large cove just to the south of us. To the north there is another medium sized cove and then the Start of the Little Niangua Arm. By road we are off of Hwy 54 to ST. Road AA, Roach, MO. There are maps on my website, follow link listed below.

We moved to Lake of the Ozarks from Colorado Springs, CO in 1996. Jim's dream was to work, play & live in one location. This photo is from a birthday celebration at one of the local restaurants, Frankie & Louie's. There is a link below to more information about us, our location and house.
Val purchased this house in 1995
Lake of the Ozarks provides a diverse environment for vacations. Families enjoy the strip at Bagnell Dam with the shopping, Old Time Photo opportunities, go-carts, etc. Osage Beach has many attractions including miniature golf, Miner Mike's Games, Water Park, and the Factory Outlet Mall where the theaters are located. There's fishing, boating & water sports everywhere. Party Cove is for the young adult crowd. There are lots of Restaurants and Bars, many are accessible by land and water.
We lived full time at this property for 12 years. We purchased and remodeled the house next door and are now living there. We enjoy the rural lifestyle with the beauty of the woods around us and sitting on the deck enjoying a drink and looking at the lake. The long warm evenings and warm water to swim & play in was one of the reasons we moved here. This is an ideal location for young and old alike. Very few steps to the lake. Our small cove location provides a perfect swim area.
"The porch was the best hangout every evening--very peaceful, the swim platform & slide were a great addition
to an awesome vacation" "Roscoe was sweet & playful. (The Bloody Mary's were good, too" M's & B's
Awesome place. It was just what we were looking for. The swimming area is protected and we spent hours just floating, jumping and diving. Great water for skiing/tubing. The house was better than the pictures, everything was clean and comfortable. Jim and Val are great hosts. We had a great time at Bear Bottoms, Captain Ron's, The Fish, and HaHaTonka. But the best time was always when we got back to our home away from home. We can't wait to come back.
What a perfect place. Quiet and protected for swimming and good skiing right out front of the house most days. The dock is awesome, we spent hours just floating swimming and diving. Jim and Val are great hosts. The house is better than the pictures could show. Everything we needed was there. Clean and comfortable. We can't wait to come back.
This lakefront retreat truly became our "Home away from home"! Beautiful setting in a quiet area, comfortable accommodations surrounded by nature, and the most hospitable owners/neighbors ever! The Sunrise Bar is AWESOME... music GR8, food & friends fabulous! The grandkids loved it as well! Val & Jim are wonderful, fun hosts that enjoy sharing their piece of heaven! Thank you so much for everything! See you in September!
My husband, me and our dog came down for our 1 year anniversary. The weather was great, the house was great, the yard/landscaping were great, the owners were great, the dock was great, the fish were great! Everything about the place and vacation were great! The pictures definitely don't do justice to the true beauty and level of relaxation and calm there is! So quiet and peaceful!! And because we could bring our dog made it even better (if that's possible). We're hoping to make another trip there in the future!! Thanks Jim & Val!
House is great and everything we expected. Three families go together and there is plenty of room for all of us. Jim and Val are great and are there to help with anything you might need. This summer will be our third year staying here and we plan on many more.
