About the property

House, 8 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 18-22)

Whispering Woods at the Lake of the Ozarks is a vacation retreat offering all the comforts of home. The lakefront property is the perfect spot to gather your friends, family or business associates for relaxation and rejuvenation.

This three-level 4,500-square-foot house can comfortably accommodate 18 to 22 people. With seven bedrooms, an additional bunk room, five bathrooms, two living areas and a game room with pool, ping pong and darts, there is plenty of space to have fun and unwind.

Outdoors, you’ll find an impressive 160 feet of lakefront and a 3-well dock with swim platform. Enjoy perfect views of the small cove that overlooks the main channel from the dock or one of the three decks that surround the home on each level. Drop a fishing line in the water, or start a game of washers on the large lakefront lawn. Two sit on top kayaks as well as a 18X6 ft water mat have been added for the spring/summer of 2017 along with fun noodles and life jackets in various sizes.

In the evening, the oversized hot tub is a great place to relax after a long day on the lake. At night, you’ll have a great view of the Tan-Tar-A fireworks display held at Hawk Island.

The property is located in a quiet cove near the 26-mile marker of the Lake of the Ozarks in Sunrise Beach, MO. Drive time to grocery stores is only about 10 minutes, and Camdenton and Osage Beach are both just a 20-minute drive away.

About Jarad Lanham

Hello! My name is Jarad Lanham and I am the CEO of I’ve been enjoying the Lake of the Ozarks for as long as I can remember. “The Lake” has changed tremendously since I first visited and continues to improve every year. My grandparents were thoughtful enough to know that families and groups of friends need a place to relax, have fun and create lasting memories in the process. Not everyone has the time or desire to have their own retreat that allows their group or family to get away and create these moments. I’ve been given the opportunity to make these lakefront vacation homes available for rent year round. The homes are made available alongside personalized services provided by Lake of the Ozarks Concierge. From grocery shopping to restaurant recommendations and boat rental arrangements, we can tailor each stay to suit your needs and are available 24/7/365 to address any concerns. If you have any questions about our homes or services, feel free to call (573) 268-4682 or submit your information to our contact form. We look forward to booking your next vacation!

Jarad Lanham purchased this house in 2008

Why Jarad Lanham chose Sunrise Beach

The Whispering Woods home is the perfect place for a large group to spread out in. With 8 bedrooms on 3 levels everyone can have their own space or everyone can gather for a meal in the large kitchen/living area. Five of the eight bedrooms look out over the waterfront along with the three expansive deck areas.

What makes this house unique

Lots of room!!!

This place is beautiful, very clean, but be aware there are lots of steps.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. Lots of space and it was in a quiet cove. The stairs were a lot for some of us, but we made the best of it. We loved having the game room and the large open space on the bottom floor where we could all hang out together. It was perfect for our large group.

The handle on the microwave was loose and one of the handles on a sliding door in a bedroom was loose, other than yhat, we had no complaints at all!

Perfect Setup!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what our large party needed. Beautiful rooms on all three levels. Large kitchen opening to living room area on bottom level was the center of all the action. Awesome lake toys like huge water pad, and kayaks. Hot tub was clean and was great. Very quick response from Jared and property manager. Would definitely book this place again!!

Annual Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family has a weekend vacation every summer and this time we stayed at the Whispering Woods house. We loved the house as it was big enough to accommodate the entire family yet spacious enough to not feel like we were on top of each. We would definitely stay here again.

FFA Officer Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I took a group of 15 high school kids and 2 adults to plan the year's FFA activities. We left from a leadership conference and headed to the lake for 2 nights. We stopped at a walmart and sent the kids shopping for the meals they had to fix. The house was PERFECT for our event. We had 10 girls and 5 boys. We put all the girls on the top floor, the boys on the bottom floor and advisors in the middle floor. The basement level had plenty of table and chair space for meeting, eating, poster making, ect. We did all our planing, talking and activities on this level. The hot tub was awesome and the lake was perfect. The toys provided, swim noodles, life jackets, floating devices, ect were perfect for our group. The high school kids had plenty to do to keep busy when we weren't planning our FFA events. The house had 3 refrigerators and 2 washer/dryers with soap included which was nice for keeping up with bath towels for 17 people. The pool table and ping pong table were an added bonus as well! I would definitely bring my group again. The cove of the lake it is on is very quite and I like that with kids not knowing how well they can swim, not having large boats going by kept my mind at ease as a leader in charge. The house smelled amazing when you walked in and the beds were quite comfortable too! Definitely a place I will return to!

This lake house was perfect for our group of 12. Plenty of room, clean, inviting!.

  • 5 of 5

We had plenty of space to gather as a group, as well as space to get away for some quiet.

The house was nicely furnished for comfortable lounging inside or out on the all three decks. We did lots of both! The cove was lovely and quiet; we spent lots of time on the decks enjoying the view and relaxing!

Bedrooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable. Nicely equipped full kitchen was great for prepping and dining. The house was clean and tidy throughout.

Great extras, too: gas grill on the lower deck; great large hot tub; pool table and pingpong table; fire pit; and even a dock!

We plan to use this lake house for many, many future gatherings!
