Laurie House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps10

The Finn Inn welcomes you with its warm knotty pine interior and fantastic lake views. Relax in front of the fireplace and the 42” flat screen TV or choose to hang-out on the large well-appointed deck with stainless steel grill, enjoying the birds and the view. Read a book from our library in the air-conditioned sun room or choose to play pool upstairs in the great room. If it is rainy, select a movie from over 100 videos. Sunny, take a swim off our swim platform or fish off the dock. Watch the kids or party from our newly built entertainment area on the dock. Bring your own boat. We have a covered 10' X 30' slip available for you to use as well as cleats on the swim dock to tie off extra boats or sea-doos.

Don't forget the marshmellows for evenings by the fire on the beach.

We are located on the West side of the Lake of the Ozarks, near the 6 mile marker on the Gravois Arm. We are in a quiet cove right off Soap Creek and minutes away from the most popular restaurant/bars on the lake. The community has a launch ramp for putting in your jet ski or fishing boat. The fishing is great so come on down!

Places nearby: The Gas Hole is right around the corner in Soap Creek as well as a new Jamaican restaurant. Coconuts, Jolly Rogers, Hillbilly Yacht Club, Richard Noggins, Frogs, and Bumps Barefoot Bar and Grill are all within 2 miles by water from here. Shady and Lazy Gators are within 7miles by water. Laurie, Mo is about 8 miles and has everything you need for groceries, shopping, cinema, restaurants and Indian Hills Golf Course. There is a convenience store on P road for quick supplies. The outlet mall, Bagnell Strip, go-karts, water park, etc. are on the East side of the lake about 40 minutes away. Bridal Cave and Captain Ron’s activities are only about 20 minutes from the house. So pack your bags and bring your family and friends. Our home will be sure to please everyone.

If you like to entertain, you will love our gourmet kitchen with all the gadgets, and appliances you will need. On the entry level, find a large Master Bedroom with Queen Bed, Balcony and Private Bath.

We furnish the dishes, cookware, appliances, bed linens, bath towels and kitchen towels. We also provide starter supplies such as paper towels and toilet paper, trash bags, bath soap and dish detergent. Please bring extras of these supplies for a large group, together with your own beach blankets and towels, personal toiletries, cooler, cleaning supplies, camera, fishing rods and tackle, life vests, floaties, sun-screen and binoculars. You can buy wood for the fire-pit locally. Please do not bring in wood from other areas so that we can control the infestation of beetles.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Ms. Pam

   I hope that I can put your mind to peace.  It was nothing that you

did-your hospitality and so many things were wonderful and the five rating

would be true.  

   It was the house itself wasn't quite to my taste and you can't

change that.  My wife and I have enjoyed staying in a number of these

places.  The style of the home was worth exploring, but it was an older home

and darker paneling, after being there it just wasn't my personal taste.

   But as to you and the hospitality of the home, we loved a number of

things that were done which were above and beyond.  The posted things that

helped us be aware of things.  Sitting in the enclosed deck or the outside

deck these were awesome.  The number adjusted beds were wonderful.  We loved

the quiet of the setting.

   You did everything right, it was simply the house setting that

wasn't quite our taste.  So as I said be at peace.  We would have no trouble

staying there again.  We are just explorers of different settings.

We retired to Lake of the Ozarks from Las Vegas, NV in 2007 after spending a couple of seasons cruising our boat in Mexico. We wanted a land base and chose this house for our new home. We have lived in this house for 4 years and then decided to go traveling again, this time in our RV. We still live in our RV and share time traveling with spending most of the summer on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. We have spent many an hour making this house our home and want to share it now with you. Please treat it as your own and enjoy being guests in our home.

Pamela Ehtee purchased this house in 2007

We had never been to Lake of the Ozarks and visited here once on our way from Las Vegas to Indiana where Pam was raised. We were going to her high school reunion when we decided to come through here and see what the lake was like. We rented a boat and stayed 3 days in the State Park here and fell in love with the beauty, the amount of fun restaurants and bars on the lake, and the way the locals made us feel at home. Two years later we bought this home and moved out here.

You will find our home very spacious and warm. Even with a large group, there are plenty of private areas to 'get away' for your own relaxation as well as areas for all to gather and have fun. Please read our reviews to see what some of our guests have to say.

ANOTHER WONDERFUL WEEK AT FINN INN

  • 5 of 5
Our family, comprised of 6 adults and 4 children (ages 11 to 3), enjoyed another wonderful week at Pam and Dick's beautiful lake home. We've spent week-long vacations on the Gravois Arm of the lake for 4 straight years now, and, after our stay at Finn Inn last year, we decided that it was the perfect spot for us.

The location on the lake is unsurpassed. The Gravois is one of the clear water arms of the lake, and the property is on a no-wake cove on the south side of Soap Creek cove, so swimming off the dock was unimpaired by large waves on other parts of the lake that are caused by big boats or big winds. We were able to find great skiing and tubing water in Soap Creek cove and in Indian Creek cove, just a few minutes away.

The Ehtees made some great improvements from last year, including a paved sidewalk from the house to the dock, increased dock floor space as a result of filling in one of the two boat slips, and the addition of WiFi in the house, which made it possible for us to cast Netflix kids videos to the large flat-screen TV.

We had a problem with one of the smaller Sleep Number beds upstairs, and Pam responded the NEXT DAY by having Tom, the great caretaker of her property, install a new Sealy mattress. Thanks, Pam and Dick!

All of the flowers on the beautifully-landscaped property were blooming, and I couldn't pass up walking by the mint plant without bending down to take a sniff. The lilies were particularly breath-taking in their size and color.

One of my grandsons really came into his own as a fisherman that week - so much so that he kept count, ending up with 40 fish for the week, all caught with worms and bobbers off the dock. Most were bluegill, but he also landed a small channel cat and a small bass.

We made several runs to the convenience store on Highway P, which was indeed convenient. Jeff, the owner, was personable and helpful. We also ran into Laurie for groceries and ate out once there and once down the road in Sunrise Beach.

One day we made a short trip by boat to Jolly Roger's, a lakeside restaurant that features a nice playground for the kids. Although the food was a bit pricey and not the best, the great setting and the fun for the little ones made it well worth the trip.

I can't say enough good things about Finn Inn. Pam and Dick have provided a wonderful lake home that we plan to enjoy for years to come. The memories we made there this year and last year are priceless.

Owner's Response: Hi Bill.  I received a copy of the review you placed on our site and I am very concerned.  This is the first rating below a 5 star that we have ever received.  What happened that you did not think us worthy of a five star?  Is there something we can do to make our accommodations better?

SPACIOUS, WELL-MAINTAINED, AMENITIES GALORE!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our first three days at the Finn Inn and promptly booked a week for the same time next year! Everything previous reviewers have said about the house and property is spot on. The cove location -perfect, the house location from water’s edge-perfect, yard, boat dock, swim platform, beach area, deck, sun porch, floor plan, kitchen (layout and equipment), laundry, game room, all perfect! The house has a charming character not found in newer construction, a blending of old and new. Well decorated, but comfortable. The upstairs master has ample room to set up a crib. Pam and Dick are extremely organized and easy to work with. Tom does a great job of maintaining the place and is also very helpful. Unless you want to be on the main channel in the midst of all the action and crowds, I can’t imagine anyone being disappointed with the Finn Inn. If you’re looking for a beautiful setting to relax and enjoy family or friends as if you were in your own home, book the Finn Inn!

ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!!

  • 5 of 5
Wow was the first word each of us expressed as we walked into the lake house. Everything was great, the house is very well decorated and emaculate. Our first pics to those at home were from the deck looking out to the lake "wish you were here". Now lets get outside to the fabulous deck/dock and water. The exterior is landscaped and maintenanced to perfection. We spent most of our time on the dock and in the water. Did I say perfect?? This place is the bomb - we only had 5 ladies in our party but the house can accommodate double with no issues. We were close to several of the popular restaurant/bars on the water. Yes, would recommend to everyone. Thank you for sharing your lake house with us it was perfect.

BEAUTIFUL, HOMEY, AND EVERYTHING AND MORE!

  • 5 of 5
Our family ventured from Wisconsin to Missouri and enjoyed the Finn Inn so much. The home was equipped with everything we needed and more! The pictures simply do not do justice to the home and the yard and garden are extremely picturesque. It was meticulously clean, which is something you rarely see in a rental home! We came to the home with 10 adults and a 15 month old, and found that there was plenty of space for everyone to roam comfortably! Some of our favorite things about the home were having dinners on the deck, fires on the beach, and fishing off the pier (great catfish and bluegill)! Pam and Dick were extremely pleasant to work with and prompt with everything from the initial booking, answering questions, and processing the security deposit refund. We recommend Jolly Rodgers, Franky and Louie's, and Papa Chubbys for great lunch/dinner restaurants, but would recommend avoiding Coconuts due to poor customer service. If you are into sight seeing and hiking, Ha Ha Tonka was a wonderful day trip!! Thank you for sharing your home with us- we will recommend everyone we know to this wonderful vacation home!

A WONDERFUL VACATION HOME ON THE LAKE

  • 5 of 5
The Finn Inn is a wonderful lake house, and it was the perfect place for us, our kids, and our grandkids to stay on our vacation. All nine of us had a great time! This was the third consecutive year that we've rented a lake house on the Gravois Arm, and this one is our favorite.

We loved the location - on a cove in a cove. Unlike at other areas on the lake, the dock that wasn't bouncing up and down all the time, and it was great to be able to park our deck boat in the covered slip, rather than having to tie it to the side of the dock. Our two oldest grandsons and I caught several bluegill from the dock one morning, and the boys were thrilled. The proximity of the house to the water is just right. We also loved the sun deck. My wife and I spent an hour or two there just about every afternoon while the kids were napping. Our son and I built a fire in the fire pit one night, and we all had smores. My wife is a former floral designer, and she and the rest of us really enjoyed the landscaping and flowers. The open kitchen, dining room, and living room were perfect for our whole-family time, and the upstairs great room was the ideal thing for our son and his family to have some time of their own together. We tied our inflatable swimming platform/pool to the side of the swimming dock, and that worked perfectly. The marina was close by, and we loved taking the boat to nearby Indian Creek cove in the mornings and evenings for some great water skiing and tubing. One evening, we took the boat to Jolly Rogers for dinner, and the kids really enjoyed the play area there.

These are excellent accommodations! It's very evident that Pam and Dick know what it takes to make a great lake home. We plan to stay there again next year.
