About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 bath home + Queen size sofa. Sleeps 8.

Beautiful, 2000 square foot, lakefront home located at the three mile marker on the Big Niangua arm of the lake known for its smooth water, which is great for skiing or tubing. Fishing is good off the dock and in the many near-by coves. Yacht bumpers on side of dock to protect boat when tying up.

Perhaps you'd prefer just relaxing or sunbathing on one of the two decks. Picnic table next to lake & 2 tables on upper deck for eating/playing games. The dock contains a swim platform with ladder and jet ski lift. There is a 'martini' deck that extends over the water which is a great place to sunbathe. There are benches around the deck and a picnic table plus lawn chairs. Additional lawn chairs and tables with an umbrella are for your use on the deck that wraps aropund two sides of the house.

Large great room with dining area at one end and a fireplace at the other. Kitchen with lots of built-ins and appliances. All utensils, bedding and linens are furnished.

For the convenience of our other guests, we ask that there is NO SMOKING inside the house, and NO pets. Fireworks are NOT permitted as this is a wooded, residential area. My phone number is 785-528-1180.

About Shirley Smulling

My husband and I were looking ahead to retirement in 2004. He was retired and I was planning on it. He loved to golf, and there are lots of courses in the area. He could fish right off the dock.

Shirley Smulling purchased this house in 2004

Why Shirley Smulling chose Lake of the Ozarks

Bud's sister owned the house next door and our close friends lived 2 doors away. We loved the outdoorsy, peaceful atmosphere. A lot of the yard is shady (I sunburn) but lots of sun, too. The deck on 2 sides of the house is great for eating outdoors.

What makes this house unique

There's a 'martini' deck that extends over the lake with a bench on 3 sides. Good for sun bathing or for a group of friends to sit. Also a picnic table down there, too. Next to the water on the other side of the yard is a 'porch' swing to sit and enjoy the lake breezes, Fantastic view of the lake from the 7 living room windows.

Our family enjoyed our stay at Whispering Oaks very much. The home is charming and spacious and cozy at the same time. We are a family of 6 and the rooms were perfect for all of the us. The home is well stocked and offered more than I expected. It really felt like we were visiting a friends or family members home. Super clean and well cared for, stress-free and comfortable.

I grew up on the lake and know it from end to end . Whether traveling by car or boat -- the home is centrally located and emphasizes the quiet, more useable part of the lake that to me, is much more representative of a true Lake of the Ozarks experience.

This was a last minute arrangement and the owner was very accomodating. She and the new guests were also very gracious and helpful, when I accidentally left some important items behind and had to come back for them!:)

This lake house is EXCEPTIONAL!!! The pictures do not do it justice. The home was very clean and well stocked. No worries if you forgot to pack something because it was there. We have good friends who stay at a pricier resort and when they saw the home, they were amazed at the space! We will definitely be back. Thank you for making our trip even better!

Great location and loved having a house!

  • 4 of 5

We have a small boat and have stayed at busier parts of the lake. This part of the lake was so much better for having a smaller boat. We loved having a house instead of a condo this year. We liked the privacy and liked having our own dock to hang out on and swim off of. The kitchen was well equipped. We ate out one meal a day but ate at the house for the other two. The kitchen had everything I needed to cook for a family of 5. We will definitely be staying here again!

Very nice and well stocked vacation home

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed here 7/14/16 thru 7/17/16. The home was very well stocked and very clean. The deck is shaded which worked well because it was very warm , and usually had a good breeze. Spent most of our time outdoors swimming or fishing. Very convenient to grocery shopping or Captain Ron's for dinner and drinks.

Excellent vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved the time we spent at the lake house. There was plenty of room for all of us. The mornings on the decks were awesome. The location was perfect, entertainment was right across the cove or just a short boat ride down the lake. When the weather did not cooperate we were still very comfortable in the house. Planning our next visit already. Thank you.

Great holiday get away place.

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was so clean. There was plenty of room for the six of us. The kitchen was fully equipped, and had a nice outdoor grill. The kids enjoyed fishing, swimming, and floating. The outdoor living was wonderful. We spent most of our time outdoors enjoying the 2decks and the swing. We plan on coming back next year. A wonderful time was had by all. Thank you.
