About Mary Jane Alex

Our family loves the atmopshere and the easy going lifestyle of the Lake of the Ozarks.

We are excited to share our beautiful homes with you.

Mary Jane Alex purchased this lodge in 2007

Why Mary Jane Alex chose Gravois Mills

This is a great spot, that is close to Laurie-close to grocery store, movies and good restaurants. Yet is is far enough away from the city to be relaxing. We are not on the busy main channel but have a beautiful view.

Great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from vacation at this home. We had a wonderful time and made so many great memories. We had a powerful storm come through on the second night we were there and it knock out our power. The power came on after about two hours, but the water was not working. Mary Jane had the handyman there within an hour. The fishing and boating were amazing. We also got to see a lot of the wildlife. My parents were very happy there were not too many steps to get to the dock.

Fabulous lake house

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family gathered at the lake for some good family time. The house was so wonderfully stocked with everything you could possibly need. I have rented through this site before and never been disappointed, however Mary Jane has gone over and above to ensure your stay is comfortable. The house was quiet, even being located right on the lake. The speed boats didn't bother us at all. There was plenty of room for the kids to play, game and books provided, and they even dropped off some DVDs for us in case we wanted to watch tv! I had two family members with disabilities that had no problem getting around in the home. We even used the provided gas grill for a family dinner. Fabulous! Thanks for the memories!

Amazing place to stay! Highly recomended!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for memorial day weekend and this place was perfect! Plenty of room in the house lots of beds and couches. All the amenities of home but with an amazing view. You walk out the back door and your 5 feet from the water. It has a really nice covered boat slip and a ramp right next to the house. Aside from the place being amazimg the owner went way out of her way to make sure everything went smooth before our arrival. Cant say a bad thing about it!

Nice owner but a lot that needed tended to

  • 3 of 5

Communication with the owner was and friendly response each time. However, with the cleaning fee that is included, I expected the house would be cleaned deeper than just surface level. Beds were made, counters clean, toilets and showers too, but there were more spider webs and spiders IN the house than I would like to mention. Having that outside is one thing, but inside the house is something completely different. My experience was that of being completely uncomfortable with the spiders everywhere, which made it hard to focus on what was more important...spending time with family. I came home with more than just good bonding memories -- I aquired some bites as well. The coffee maker didn't work properly, satellite wouldn't work at all, the washer wouldn't drain the water, and upstairs TV was probably the smallest flat screen I've ever seen. This resulted in horrible tasting coffee, no family time around the TV, and lots of laundry left to do at home.

What I did enjoy and appreciate about the house is that it is decorated in bright colors (which of course made it easier to see all the spiders everywhere). If this property gets a deep cleaning inside and out and things are fixed/repaired, I would recommend staying here. Lots of potential!

Owner's Response: My beautiful home at the Lake of the Ozarks has a panoramic view of the lake from the screened in porch, patio, martini deck and the dock. I have a wonderful cleaning crew that takes a lot of pride in keeping my home in great condition. I went above and beyond for this nice family, responded immediately to their multiple calls, e mails and texts and was very accommodating to all of their requests. Maybe the lake is not right for some people. I have had my cleaning crew and handyman back in and everything is in good working order! I can't wait for my next renters to come and enjoy the lake!

Relaxing and fun

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 8 adults who went down for a long weekend, and we had a great time. The layout allowed people to gather and separate as they felt comfortable, the rooms were all very nice. The lake in this area was a lot of fun to swim in, a few waves from passing boats, but not the constant battering from the main channel. The kitchen was well equipped and we had a really great time.
