Imagine drinking your cup of coffee in the crisp morning air with an amazing view of the sun bouncing off the calm lake water in all directions. Any season at Lake of the Ozarks is an amazing time of year to visit and this cottage will give you the perfect experience. Whether you’re here to play in the sun, shop, fish, hunt, visit wineries or just get away from it all - this is where you’ll want to unwind at the end of the day.
WHY WE FELL IN LOVE
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 and we’ve been renting ever since. The house is situated close to the water for easy access and sits in a calm cove for peaceful days. This cottage is perfect for vacationers because that's exactly what we had in mind during our search for a cottage rental.
WHY YOU WILL FALL IN LOVE
We have tried to think of everything you will need to relax while you’re on vacation. You’ll find the house is well furnished and stocked, comfortable, CLEAN, close to the water with minimal steps, situated in a quiet cove, and great for big families (including your furry members). Yes, we are PET FRIENDLY!

DECK: 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 fishing 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.
The large deck comfortably seats around 20 people with two tables and plenty of extra chairs. There are also 2 outdoor speakers on the deck and a charcoal Weber grill for a memorable BBQ overlooking the lake.
Near the water, you'll find a built-in fire pit on the water's edge for a late night conversation with s'mores!
PARKING: 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.
DOCK: 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.
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 breathtaking 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.
If you are interested in renting a boat: Contact Iguana Boat Rentals. Iguana boat rentals is about 2 minutes by car and 1 minute by water. There are many other boat rental companies in the area so if you need more information just ask!

Thank you for stopping by!
Our love for the Lake of the Ozarks began in 1980 when we vacationed here for our Honeymoon! We (Peggy and Dave) then began vacationing here every summer with our family in 1989 and eventually bought our first home here in 1994.
After 10 incredible summers at this house, we decided to move from Oswego, IL (Chicago suburb) to Rocky Mount, MO full-time. We loved our original house too much to let it go and decided to keep the house as a rental property for other families to enjoy like we did!
We enjoyed renting our lake house so much, we decided to look for another vacation home to purchase. After a year of searching, we found Echo Valley in 2006 and have been renting it ever since.
As full-timers here, we are very familiar with the area and can help you with any questions you may have during your stay - from where to put your boat in, which restaurants to check out or where the closest convenience store is - we've got you covered! We're also just a short boat ride or drive away if you should need anything.
Dave or Peggy purchased this cottage in 2006
This cottage is situated very nicely inside a cove within a larger cove so if privacy is important to you, it doesn't get much better than this at The Lake of the Ozarks.
This cottage has 85' of lake frontage and close to many popular restaurant / bars on the lake. The view of the lake from the deck is remarkable.

Cottage is amazing, This place was exactly as described and better than our expectation. it was very clean and what you need, everything in there, I hope we can come again soon, I can recommend everyone to stay there. Thank you very much. 5 STAR
This house was great for our large family/friends vacation! The house was exactly as described and better in most cases. Little things like having an ice maker make the trip that much more enjoyable. Note: Bring a baby gate for the stairs if you have little ones. And if you bring a boat, make sure to stop by Mommas around the corner and sample some of their fine adult beverages. Also if you are looking to rent a boat, Iguana boat rental is on the docks at Mommas and the folks there are friendly and accommodating.
Great place to stay visiting the lake! Very clean, right on the lake and great outdoor space for grilling and hanging out. This was our 6th visit and we will be back!
After flying 3 children( under the ages of 5) 2000 miles. We were beyond tired and ready for a much needed rest. When we arrived at our rental cottage at the lake of the Ozarks, we were mind blowned by the up keep and how well furnished the place was. The location is perfect with quick access to a lake where we fished and swam. The rooms had a very warm welcoming feel. The deck overlooking the lake was amazing to sit around and relax on. We would and have recommended this place to friends and family. And more importantly the kids had fun!! Hoping to make this place our family tradition.
We all enjoyed our stay in this lovely home. We noticed the updated new flooring, paint, TV & furniture. This is such a comfortable and pretty place to have a vacation. It is easy to cook meals here. The deck is pretty and comfortable and the view of the lake is awesome! The beds are very comfortable too! It's great for kids! Even our 6 yr old granddaughter said the bedroom was "pretty" & our grandson loved the ability to be able to fish off the dock. The dock is big and a fantastic place to enjoy the view and jump into the water and has easy access when renting a boat or Ski-doo. We loved having a washer & dryer to use. Having a bathroom on each floor was so helpful with our family of 11. The small sand area for our little ones to play in right off the deck was super because they could play in the shallow water with their water toys. We will be returning to this lovely place! PS: The Owners are very nice and respond quickly to the questions we had.
This is my third time staying at this charming lake rental and each time has been perfect - a fun yet relaxing weekend away! Whether you're planning a trip for your family, a couples trip or a girls/guys getaway, this rental has everything you need - ample space to entertain, plenty of beds, a great view and a perfect location on the lake (close to shopping, restaurants and bars by boat or car). The owners are friendly & have made significant updates to the property each time I visit (new flooring, paint and flat screen TV). Thanks for another great visit! Can't wait for my next stay and to make many more memories.
'Coving out' (Yes, it's a verb here! Try 'Party Cove' in the state park but it's not for kids, )
