About the property

4 BR, 3 BA Mallard Bay II Estates

Beautiful Lakefront house in Popular Proctor Cove at the 55mm with 165' of lake front. It is 3 bedrooms plus a loft being the 4th with two twin beds, and 2 convertible couches, one on the main floor, and one in the basement so it will sleep up to 12 people, there are also 3 baths, one on each floor. There are three levels, the main level consists of Master bedroom, with patio door walking out to the deck, bath, kitchen, dining/great room with vaulted ceilings. Great room consists of gas fireplace, convertible bed in the sectional couch, TV, Wifi internet throughout house, satellite, DVD, Stereo, and recliner. The kitchen is open to the great room with a center island, counter top space on one side and bar style seating on the other side, There is also a dining room table that sits next to the windows overlooking the lake. Kitchen has stove, microwave, refrigerator with ice maker, coffee maker/filters, toaster, dishwasher, and all the utensils, dishes, pots and pans, and pantry. There are 2 patio doors walking out of the kitchen and living room onto the large deck that overlooks the lake. The upstairs has a bedroom with vaulted ceilings, bath, and the loft overlooking the great room. The basement consists of a bedroom, bath and a family room with patio doors in the bedroom and family room that open up to the concrete patio on the lake side of the home. There is a convertible bed, and air hockey table in the family room, and also a washer/dryer in the utility room. There is a large deck of the lakeside of the house with composite decking that has a top table and chairs, along with a gas grill. There is also plenty of parking for your vehicles or boat trailer. We stock the home with propane for the grill, coffee & filters, dishwasher tablets, toilet paper, some paper towels, however most ppl do bring toilet paper and paper towels to replenish what they've used.

The walk to the dock is a very easy commute with a concrete sidewalk. The dock consists of a large swim platform with a ladder, table and chairs, There is 20' of water depth at the outside end of the dock, excellent fishing from dock with crappie beds below it, and along the seawall. All of this is in the beautiful 1.5 mile long cove off the main channel of Proctor cove. There are 9 bars/restaurants within 8 miles by water. There is a nice concrete ramp in the rear of our cove at Mallard Bay Campground to launch your boat, they charge $10 launch fee, free to take it back out. It is 1/2 mile by water, or 10 min by land from the house. Also gas and marinas are close by, along with caves, a winery, shopping and many other things to do. I have a map I send out to all guests that has all the bars/restaurants, marinas, boat launch, etc marked on it for convenience.

About Kris Renner

We live in Nebraska but have been making the journey to Lake of the Ozarks for the last 15 years. I purchased my first Lake property 15 years ago in the same cove this home is in. We love the cove and the location on the lake, so when this home became available we knew we had to make the upgrade.

Kris Renner purchased this house in 2012

Why Kris Renner chose Stover

The reason we chose this part of the lake because my first experience of going to Lake of The Ozarks was a stay on the 20mm and it was ROUGH, couldn't even go boating on the weekend, I swore I would never come back. Then I found there was a calm side to the lake, which is why we chose were we did to purchase. We have the same lake with good deep water without all the rough water. Perfect for fishing, and families that like to participate in watersports, swimming or just a nice boat ride. We chose a cove location vs. a main channel location to be away from all the main channel boat traffic, and rougher waters.

What makes this house unique

Same great lake with laid back friendly people, Calm Water, and its geographical location.

We chose this area because of its northern location. It is only 2 hours from the Southeast edge of the Kansas City Metropolitan area, (Lees Summit) making it about the closest location on the lake (time wise) to the Metro area. It makes our drive 1/2 hour to a hour shorter than most locations farther down the lake.

Best family vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time! This home is beautiful and the pictures do not do it justice. A quieter area on the lake, which is exactly what we wanted. We got to meet some of the neighbors and they were extremely friendly as well even some of their furry friends greeted us! The Gem convenience stop is suppose to be 10 minutes away, but we never found it. You have to be careful not to get lost with little cell service. Once you're in town you'll find everything you need, so stock up the first day. The walk to the dock is pretty steep for any elderly relatives. My 87 year old grandmother is quite the trooper and did it once a day on our trip though! There are even steps at the shore if you have a pet with you, which my grandmother used as well. We fished, swam, jet ski'd, and sat around the bonfire. We would definately recommend this place. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great time. Sorry you didn't find the convenience store. There's a map of it in the information booklet in the home along with the google map link in the email sent. Its very convenient if you need something fast, and there prices are also very competitive as well. I'm also happy to answer any questions during your stay if you get in a bind. We would love to have you back again!

Great week with the family !

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for a week away with my wife, 2 daughters and their friend. Super clean and well-equipped house. Plenty of room for eevryone. And the upper deck is perfect.

Great view and shaded. The location on Proctor Cove is great. Water turtles, fish, 2 bald eagle sightings, mama duck and ducklings...plenty of wildlife! Very rarely saw a big boat and the "crowds" didn't arrive until Friday afternoon. We basically had the area to ourselves for 5 days. Even took an 8 mile boat ride to lunch and only saw 1 boat and 2 waverunners on the water. Fishing was good....caught a few crappie and 3 24+" blue cats off the dock. Lots of bluegill near the cliff jump. We spent a ton of time swimming off the dock. Very comfortable spot to hang out. This is not the part of the lake with partiers, big wakes, shopping etc. This is where you go for a quiet spot to relax. After we arrived a week ago, I didn't even get into our truck until my wife picked me up at the boat ramp yesterday!

Best spot on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Kris for a wonderful stay. The whole family really enjoyed staying at this location. The cabin offered enough room for all of us to stay comfortably. There was plenty of parking space for three cars and the cabin was easy to access. Fishing was good and we really appreciated your efforts to get the lift on the dock up and working before we arrived. Thanks again and we will see you next year!
