CHARMING COTTAGE, HORSESHOE BEND; QUIET COVE; 3BDRM, 2BA;

Horseshoebend House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

KICK BACK AND RELAX AT THIS CHARMING AND ENCHANTING, PRIVATE, GEM OF A COTTAGE, ON THE WATER. Spring and summer are here! Don't wait too long as we are booking up dates in the summer! Imagine yourself, sitting on our new and enlarged cedar deck(April 2014), enjoying your cup of coffee in the early morning or, better yet, sipping a nice glass of wine on the deck, dock or lovely screened in porch, as the day comes to a close. Summer is just around the corner and you and your friends and family have an opportunity to create memories for a life time!

Our guests love our special cottage, nestled in the trees, with plenty of privacy. Your cares will melt away, while watching water fowl come and go, in and out of our peaceful cove. We are located at the end of the cove and it is a wonderful place to unwind. Privacy is ensured as we are surrounded by lovely treed lots. It truly is a special retreat for friends and family alike. Enjoy your own private dock, steps away from the cottage. Bring your boat and keep it in our slip that is available for your use. The water is normally at least 15-20 feet deep in and around our dock and end of cove.

But, on the other hand, a short boat ride out of the cove will bring you full front and center to the gorgeous, expansive Lake of the Ozarks main channel. If you have a boat, bring it and if you do not, there are plenty of great boat and PWC rental groups out there.

At the end of a very quiet street with plenty of parking, our well maintained cottage has two levels with two living spaces. UPDATES ABOUND IN THE COTTAGE!!! New HVAC system, new roof, new and enlarged cedar deck, new sliding doors, new queen mattresses, updated and to code electrical on the dock, new stove/oven, updated decor and paint throughout! There are wood floors throughout the first floor and the furnishings are updated. We have luxurious feather duvets and duvet covers on all the beds and new pillows every year. The fully equipped kitchen is open to the living area, which leads out to the deck. The living space has a seating area adjacent to a dining area surrounded by views of the outdoors. The master bedroom,with a new pillow top mattress which also leads out to the deck, and bath are on the same level. The lower level boasts another spacious living area complete with large flat screen TV, bunk beds and pull out sleeper sofa. Two other bedrooms(each have queen beds) are on the lower level, as is the full bathroom which has a new tiled, large shower, laundry and screened in porch. There is plenty of closet and drawer space in all the bedrooms.

We also have a patio space between the house and deck where you can relax around a cozy fire for the cool, lovely evenings. We have fallen in love with this cottage and surrounding area and know that you will as well. Bring your friends and family and create memories for a lifetime.

Kris here. I am a native of St. Louis Missouri and have many great memories of days spent at Lake of the Ozarks as a youth. A friend purchased a place at the lake three years before us and we spent time with them at the lake and I fell in love with the lake once again. I have a teenage daughter and she always has a friend or two with her when we go to the lake. She loves to go tubing and ski. We love just hanging out at the dock and using the kayaks and pedal boat.

Kris Dodds purchased this house in 2008

As I said previously, I had spent many great times at Lake of the Ozarks as a youth. And now I get to share it with my daughter, friends and family. We love water sports such as skiing, tubing and just being out on the water. We have two kayaks and pedal boat and love to cruise around our cove. For people who play golf, there are so many really great courses all around us. That is a huge bonus. Not many lake vacation regions have such plentiful and good golf courses. We love the fact that the lake is only about 2 1/2-3 hours from our home in St. Louis. We love to have friends and family down for a fun and relaxing getaway.

We love our property for many reasons. Firstly, it is just the right size and attributes we were looking for. We wanted a place that was not on top of other houses, thus lots of privacy. We were looking for a screened in porch, two living spaces and walk out lower level. We love the fact that we are at the end of a quiet cove so swimming and relaxing are simple to partake in. We love that we can pull our car up to the front porch and load and unload our vehicle. We wanted the Horseshoe Bend area as it has a good property value and is easy access from St. Louis. There are a few really good restaurants nearby as well as a few grocery stores. We really do not have to deal with the traffic and rush of the major route at the lake, Hwy. 54.

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!

  • 5 of 5
We have used vrbo for the past 2 years and this is the first place I have felt compelled to write a review about. The owner went above and beyond what we expected to make us feel welcome. She made us feel more like friends we were borrowing a house from. House was perfect for us and our two dogs. Highly recommend this property and we will be back. Thanks Kris!

MY STAY IN LAKE OZARK

  • 5 of 5
The place where I stayed was better than described! Very quite,clean,dead end street,no traffic,every thing you could won,t or need was provided. The owner is a great person to deal with. Helpful with every thing you need. Over twenty years of vacations this was one of the top five of the best places I ever stayed! If it is available in Oct.2014 I will stay there again.

BEAUTIFUL HOME AT A GREAT PRICE

  • 5 of 5
We had an excellent time on our trip at this cottage. The owner was very responsive leading up to our trip and she didn't disappoint with her cottage. Everything was very clean and welcoming as soon as we stepped in the house. It's on a quiet street and you're surrounded by nature, which was exactly what we were looking for. I'd highly recommend this cottage for any type of trip. You won't find a better price either!!

THE PROPERTY WAS EXACTLY AS THE DESCRIPTION SAID AN LOOKED EXACTLY LIKE THE PICTURE.

  • 5 of 5
My family and I loved this place. It is definitely a family oriented place. We loved the fact that it was in a cove and at the end of th street, because there was not any traffic and it was quiet and peaceful and private. The property has everything you could possibly want or need. The only thing you need to bring is food, clothing and yourselves. We had such a wonderful time and the fishing off of the dock was great. The owner is so great to work with. She is kind and considerate. We are definitely going back to this place again. in fact, we plan on makking it a yearly family get
together. You will not be disappointed if you choose this place to spend your vacation.

FEELS LIKE HOME!

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed at this cottage two other times, and it's a wonderful place to return to. It feels so welcoming and is so thoughtfully furnished. It really feels like home, not a rental. The warmth of the kitchen and living room area, the charm of the screened-in porch, and the quiet location at the end of the cove combined with a fantastic bunch of trees around the house make this a great place to enjoy time alone or with family/ friends. It's a great place to cook--the open floor plan makes it easy to prepare food while visiting. You really get the best of both worlds here--a great location close to everything while feeling quietly tucked away from the busy world!

A PLACE WHERE DREAMS ARE MADE!

  • 5 of 5
A wonderful wonderufl experience! We took my 83 year old mom and her four legged companion to this incredible Lake Ozarks cottage. I hesitate to write this review, I don't want EVERYONE booking up what I like to consider "My cottage" after having stayed. This place offers everything you could want. We cooked, we boated, we relaxed, and we awed at the entire environment. You will love the dock at the end of the cove that leaves you with your own private nook at the lake! Convenient to all the Lake attractions in just minutes, but you won't want to leave home...it just offers too much! Nestled in its own forest, the world is yours! The screened in porch is wonderful for peaceful moments anytime of day, but night gives you a wonderful lighted view of the cove. We can't say enough about the firepit fires, the paddleboat excursions, the comfort of the lake house. You will have the vacation you dreamed of and want for nothing! The owners are more than accomodating to your needs. Easy rental and easy street memories!
