You will love this Lake of the Ozarks cottage. We purchased this lake house property in January of 2006 after searching for a year for the perfect lake house rental. We now have seven full years of seasonal rentals under our belt. This cottage is perfect for vacationers because that's exactly what we had in mind during our search for a cottage rental.
The single-level deck overlooking Lick Branch Cove on Lake of the Ozarks is approximately 600 square feet. The view is awesome since the cottage is located just inside a smaller cove for calm water swimming, skiing, and recreation with a great lake view of the very large Lick Branch Cove. There is ample parking for as many as four cars right next to the lake house.
If you are familiar with the Lake of the Ozarks area, you know how hilly it is. This lake house rental allows for very easy access from your car. The front door is just a couple feet away and there is parking area available for 4 cars! In addition to that, getting to the lake or dock from the cottage is also no problem. There are only a few steps down to the lake where there is a floating single well covered dock. (WE CAN'T STRESS ENOUGH HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO FIND A LAKE HOUSE WITH A FAIRLY LEVEL LOT HERE IN THE OZARKS!) The dock has a swim platform with a ladder and will fit a 30 foot boat.
The Ozark lake house rental easily has enough room for two average-size families with 1500 square feet of living space. The lake house rental boasts a large kitchen that is well equipped with utensils, pots, pans, coffee maker, etc along with all the appliances you will need for your vacation including a trash compactor and dishwasher. There is also a full-size stackable washer and dryer in this lake house vacation rental.
The lake house rental has four TVs with cable service along with a DVD player. The living room has the large 36' TV with a DVD, CD player, Receiver and four tower speakers. There is also a hook up for your IPOD or MP3 player. One lake house bedroom on the second floor has a full-size bed and futon. The second bedroom upstairs has two full size beds. The third lake house bedroom upstairs has a full size bed and has a door out to a balcony over looking the Lake of the Ozarks.
The first floor bedroom of this lake house has a QUEEN size bed along with a 19' TV. The living area is off the kitchen and the kitchen/ dining area is on the first level. It is a very large area with plenty of comfortable seating. I'll say it again, we chose this lake house for its vacationer-friendly attributes.
Lake of the Ozarks is a very popular tourist area with plenty of shopping within a 20 minute drive. There is a very large mall in Osage Beach with 110 factory outlet type stores. Osage Beach also has plenty of restaurants including popular chain restaurants such as Applebee's, Outback Steak House, Panera Bread, Chili's, and Bandana's among others... But, be sure to check out the local restaurants that offer some very good food as well as breath taking views. Michael's Steak Chalet is one of our favorites. Great food and even better view of the main channel of the lake from high on a bluff.
You'll find many restaurant/bars along the lakeshore by boat too. There are also places nearby that have boat rentals and personal watercraft rentals. You'll find many go-cart tracks and other activities for the family including the historic Bagnell Dam area.
