About Tony Ahern

We are a midwest couple with four grown children. We enjoy coming to the lake for fun and relaxation. The water activities at the lake, and all of the other area activities and attractions, offer something for everyone. Our experiences at the lake are some of the most relaxed and enjoyable times we spend together as a family. We look forward to our time at the lake as much as anything we do all year.

Tony Ahern purchased this house in 2011

Why Tony Ahern chose Lake of the Ozarks

We have rented lake homes at several locations the past few years. This area of the lake had everything that we wanted and more; great location, quiet and relaxing, and easy access to all the many activities, shopping and restuarants the Lake of the Ozarks has to offer.

What makes this house unique

You will enjoy the quiet cove for swimming off the dock, or wading in the water off the private pebble beach. You can relaxe on the patio or deck while enjoying the view of the lake or a great sunset. Inside, the home is comfortably arranged for a variety of vacation time enjoyment.

If you want to golf, shop, take in a movie, or enjoy any of the other area attractions or restaurants, you are just minutes away with easy access and good roads.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to let both of you know how much we enjoyed our stay this past weekend! The whole setting could not have been more perfect. The home and facilities are nothing short of magnificent.

The sunsets were unbelievable and we got some super pic's. We loved all the gorgeous pictures on the walls of your home!

Our whole family was already talking the next day about the "next time" we do this. They all commented on both how top-notch/first-class everything is and how "homey" the place felt from the time you walked in.

I hope you find we treated the place with tender loving care, as we hope to come back again!

Outstanding lake home with everything you need for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This home is modern, clean, well maintained, and the home owner went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable. One of the best things about this rental is that it's tucked inside a little cove, so there are no waves hitting the dock like we had at the house we rented last year. It's peaceful with a good sized dock to sit, sun, or just hang out on. One night we sat and watched a thunderstorm roll through under the covered area of the dock. There is comfortable furniture all around outside and inside. We had four couples and a couple toddlers and we all had plenty of space to sit around the table for meals. We set up an inflatable baby pool on the patio which worked well since you could still see the people who were playing in the lake from the patio. We rented a tritoon and used the empty slip to tie it up when we weren't using it during the day we rented it. The large floatation pad provided by the home owner was fantastic for playing and relaxing on. The kids and adults had so much fun on that pad! They also have a diving platform that got used quite a bit.

The house itself is beautiful and stocked with all the kitchen items you need. There were clear instructions for checking in and checking out and Tony even called us a few times to make sure everything was going well. It is very clear that Tony and Janet take great care of their property as everything was in good working order and very clean!

Great House for families!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our recent stay at this property. We had a good sized group of 7 adults and 5 kids under the age of 4 and this place was plenty big.

If you are looking for a beach for kids to play on, then this is the place for you. I searched well over 100 places in the Lake of the Ozarks area and none of them were as well rounded as this place was for children.

The pebble beach entertained our kids all day and they loved jumping off of the dock for the 4 days we were there. You will find many of these homes due to the geography of the region have no beach access and fortunately this one did!

The open floor plan in the home was great along with the island in the kitchen to make all sized meals worked very well for our group.

You will definitely enjoy the 3 different outdoor patio sitting areas near the house. Our group spent most of our time actually sitting on the dock as there was a nice card table there as well as sat in the lounge chairs near the end of the dock. The Lily Pad (floating raft) was an added value to trip as the kids and adults enjoyed that on the hot summer days. If you want a relaxing place for a good sized group (especially with children) then this is your place. The location is about 40 minutes from Osage Beach which kept the area we were in very quiet.

The owner was excellent to deal with and I spoke to him many times during the 9 month planning of this trip. He always answered my call and was professional each time. (email responses were quick as well)

Great place...great lake...great time...lasting memories!

Awesome experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our family made so many wonderful memories at this house! The house was beautiful and very welcoming. It slept our party of 6 adults and 5 kids perfectly. The pebble beach was great for kids and we spent the bulk of our time swimming and hanging out on the dock. The cove that the house is in is very peaceful and easily accessible to grocery stores, gas stations, etc. I would definitely recommend staying here to anybody looking to have a peaceful, relaxing and fun vacation!

Great lake house****

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay. Had many activities for the entire family (paddle boat, lilly pad, dock with board, place to store our boat during the stay). The home was so nice with plenty of room for our entire group to sit around and play games, and it had everything we needed for cooking including grills and dishes. It was located in a nice quiet cove which allowed the kids to swim and paddle boat. I would recommend this home to anyone wanting to have a nice place to stay at Lake of Ozarks. Tony (owner) was great to work with in making sure our stay was good.

Heaven on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were celebrating our 40 year wedding anniversary and decided to rent this house with our family. Wow, it was outstanding! We have grandkids that could swim off the dock, we fished and cooked out with the grill. The house is so accommodating for a large crowd of people that everyone on the first floor can visit. The owners are easy to work with and I highly recommend your choice of this property.
