WESTSIDE LAKEFRONT VACATION HOME RENTAL WITH BOAT/SWIM DOCK

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.

We are offering a Special rate for the Shootout the week of Aug 16 thru 24th. Contact the owner for weekend and weekly specials.

The community has a launch ramp for putting in your jet ski or fishing boat. The fishing is great so come on down!

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.

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.

PERFECT family spot at the Ozarks

  • 5 of 5
Pam sent us everything we needed after we booked - information on boat rentals, parking, how to get in, etc. When we arrived we were so pleased to see that it was everything it looked like in the pictures. The house was meticulously maintained and everything we needed was there from cake pans, bowls, peelers, extra paper towels, trash bags, etc. Tom, the property manager, stopped by to check on us and gave us an extension cord for the baby monitor by the fire pit. The only thing I can think of that we needed and didn't have was information on where and how to recycle plastic, aluminum, and glass - but note that we didn't ask Pam or Tom that while we were there so they may have an answer for that.

We had three families in our group (one with a 6-mo-old, another with a 2-mo-old, 3 and 7 year-olds, and one with a 3 and 6-year old). The four bedrooms with bunk beds and big master bedrooms (with plenty of room for pack n plays) suited everyone perfectly. There was plenty of room for us to all hang out together on the main floor or for the kids to watch a quick movie before bed upstairs.

The overall setup was amazing. When the littlest ones were eating or sleeping, we could still somewhat participate from the sun room that overlooked the dock and all the action. All day we were busy on the paddle boat, the noodles, the swing, and a stand up paddleboard we brought. It is a quieter cove than we've been to before so you can use the SUP without big waves bothering you. The seating area on the dock was just perfect. Then, at night after dinner we would retire to the fire pit on the little beach area. The kids LOVED having smores every night and that was a highlight of the trip. We also were able to sit in the shallow water there with the little ones, which does not seem common for the Ozarks.

The weather was perfect and the house and dock was an ideal setup for our group. Pam and Dick were great to work with; they take great care of their home and share with you. We will likely make this an annual trip!

Amazing time with old friends

  • 5 of 5
Pictures don't do it justice, we arrived to an immaculate home that is beautifully decorated. Everything from the sitting area on the dock, the fire pit area, swings, covered deck seating area, wonderful sunroom along with the large t.v. room area upstairs were all places that offered wonderful opportunities for much needed down time. We have rented a home at Lake of the Ozarks home for the past 6 years and this one by far is the best one yet! The owners are very detailed oriented, everything was very well maintained. All 8 of us would have changed nothing.

Great family get away!

  • 5 of 5
Thank your for providing a perfect get away home for our family of five! The home was clean and very charming. The weather was perfect so we spent a good part of our time on the back deck and down at the dock and of course out on the lake. Your property manger Tom checked in with us the first day to see if we needed anything. He obviouisly does a great job overseeing the property and being available if needed. We didn't have any issues with anything and had a great time. If anyone is looking for a quiet qreat get away spot, look no further. The only issue we had, was not having more time available to enjoy your home.
Thank you for making our family time together great!

Another Wonderful Week at the Finn Inn!

  • 5 of 5
This is the second year our family has stayed at this lovely home. The house is spacious and very clean and stocked with all you need. The beds and linens are top of the line. There are beautiful plants surrounding the house. We were able to keep our canoe on the nice beach area. We enjoyed sitting on the shady dock watching the kids swim in the lake. At night we roasted marshmallows in the fire pit on the beach. The house is very close to the lake, only a few steps leading down, very easy access. There is a great grocery store and coffee shop close by and also some nice restaurants. We had a very relaxing week and everyone is talking about coming back next year. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a great rental at Lake of the Ozarks.

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?
