Gravois Mills Condo Rental Photos and Description

Lake front, condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The Lake of the Ozarks is a man made lake built by Union Electric consisting of 54,000 acres held back by the electric generating Bagnell Dam. It has 1150 miles of shoreline and runs 92 miles end to end.

Gorgeous lake view from the top floor screened balcony, living room and master bedroom. Professionally decorated (1523 sq. foot) 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths and laundry room open floor plan condominium.

Our kitchen features granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and ceramic tile floors. You will find everything you need from a blender to wine goblets for cooking and serving your family.

Swim in our crystal clear salt water pool or relax in the hot tub. If you prefer the lake for swimming, there is a swim platform just outside our building. Want to spend some quiet time fishing or join the skiers and tubers on the water? Bring your boat or rent one from one of the near-by marinas. We offer you the use of our 12’ x 32’ boat slip. There is no on-site boat ramp but a public ramp near-by. The charge is $5.00 which includes both launching and loading your boat. Fishing off the docks works out well even for the not so novice fisherman.

The Laurie and Sunrise Beach area have several massage and other therapeutic treatment spas. By water, the H. Toad across the lake has many comforting services available.

After you are all rested up, try one of the many restaurants in Laurie and near-by. Less than 5 minutes away, The Rocky Top Bar & Grill (popular with the locals) a few miles up on HWY O. Less than 8 minutes away, the town of Laurie also has JJ'S Copper Pot, Chances R, Blue Bird Bakery & Cafe, Val's, and the ole' favorite chains, Sonic, Pizza Hut and Subway. Nearby Sunrise Beach has a great Mexican (also American food) place called Sunrise Cantina, Captain Ron's Bar & Grill, and many others. Greenview has the popular Tupelo Honey's. Head North on HWY 5, towards Gravois Mills you can reach the very popular Coconuts Bar & Grill with it's swim up bar(seasonal) and Bumps Barefoot Bar.


You'll find more than 15 top-rated golf courses and 261 holes, many on or overlooking the water, at the Lake of Ozarks. Included are courses designed by Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Tom Weiskopf, Bruce Devlin, Robert Trent Jones, Sr., and Robert Hagge. The Indian Rock Golf Club in just 3 miles up highway O.

Land location:

We are located on highway O about 6 miles (8 minutes) from the town of Laurie. In the evenings, watch around the turns for deer grazing right along the road while not minding at all if you stop to take a picture.

Lake Location:

Blue Anchor Bay is at the ½ MM of the Gravois Mill Arm of Lake of the Ozark, located between the 6 & 7 MM of the main lake. We are close to the H. Toad on the 7 MM of the main lake (just around the corner and across the lake), you should not miss a visit to the very popular and unique Coconuts Bar & Grill at the 7 MM of the Gravois Arm with their swim up bar. You can also reach them by land in less than 20 minutes. The Jolly Roger is located at the 4 ½ MM of the Gravois Arm. Great food and fun at both establishments. There are over 40 restaurants on the waters of the lake.

Approximate driving times:

Blue Anchor Bay is approximately

2 -2 1/2 hours from Kansas City

1 hour 15 minutes from Jefferson City, MO.

3-3 1/2 hours from the St. Louis area.

8 minutes out of Laurie, MO on HWY O (6 miles of paved road).

There is much more to do and see in the lake area. Contact the Lake West Area Chamber of Commerce, Camdenton Chamber and for the ‘other side’ of the lake contact the Lake Area Chamber of Commerce for more information. We have no doubt you can entertain your family by land or water.

Why Donna Diener chose Lake of the Ozarks

Blue Anchor Bay can make your vacation entertainingly fun, comfortable and memorable. If your wish is to relax on the balcony, fish, boat ride or enjoy the pool you will be delighted at Blue Anchor Bay. A short drive to the other side of the lake will find yourself surrounded by more restaurants, shopping and other family activities.

What makes this condo unique

You can drive less than 5 minutes to a cinema, golf and a local bar and grill. Less than 8 minutes you are in Laurie where there are 2 grocery stores and a nice city park with a indoor pool that we visit often during the colder months as it is open all year (it is well maintained and clean). There are over 10 more restaurants in the town of Laurie and Sunrise Beach. By water you will be in a perfect location to enjoy over 40 restaurants. Relaxation is a short trip beginning the moment you turn onto the Blue Anchor Bay driveway and get your first glimpse of the beautiful lake view.

Romantic Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This condo is fantastic! Very clean, granite...incredible view of the lake from the deck or just sitting in the main room. We have stayed here several times with our kids, other couples, family and now just the two of us. Very quiet and yet so close to everything. The Gravois Arm of the Lake is less hectic and still filled with spots to eat, drink, ski or float. The pool at Blue Anchor is like new as is the entire facility. Very quick and easy access to the main channel and another set of places to eat, drink and sight see. Donna has her kitchen stocked with more utensils and dishes than we have at our own home. We grilled steaks on the deck overlooking the lake. Nice TV to watch some Ryder Cup, great furniture to sit and sleep on...large bathrooms...We are booking for our trips there next year!!!

Our stay in Donna's condo exceeded our expectations. The condo is spacious and tastefully decorated with a beautiful screened deck with a sensational view of the lake. Donna was extremely helpful and easy to work with. The kitchen was unbelievably well stocked with complimentary items for our use! We brought our boat and were able to use a nearby boat launch and keep it in the slip that came with the condo which made boating very convenient. We are a large family who have vacationed together for years and rented through VRBO all over the U.S. This was a very exceptional property and I would highly recommend it.

Excellent Property !

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this property recently, and it was everything we expected and more. We have been coming to the lake for almost 30 yrs. and have stayed at several condos throughout the lake. This property and condo itself, is at the top of our list. The condo was immaculate and very well organized. The property is very well maintained. The owner was very helpful and gracious and made sure that we had everything we needed for a great family vacation.

If you tow your boat to the lake, a boat launch is very close and a nice facility. The condo does come with a boat slip that is located very close to the condo. The Gravois Arm offers plenty of great places by water to enjoy.

I would certainly recommend this property, not only because of the well maintained facility and beautiful condo, but the owner was so helpful. Nicely done Donna, THANK YOU !

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Blue Anchor Bay # 293663 with two families which consisted of teenagers. The condo is very clean and well stocked. The kitchen has everything you need....toaster, crockpot, blender and all the pots and accessories you need to prepare meals. The Traeger grill on the deck was very nice and it intrigued the guys on the trip. Donna was excellent to work with. She is very quick to respond to emails and phone calls. I highly recommend staying in this paticular unit at Blue Anchor Bay.
