About the property

Ranch Home, 5 Bedrooms+3.5 baths- Bunglow w/kitchen, (Sleeps 14-16)

Great for family gatherings, reunions or just a quiet weekend! GET THE 7th NIGHT FREE ALL YEAR LONG!

'LOST WEEKEND'- This beautiful 2800 sf home sits on 5.4 acres. Together with 1 bedroom bungalow equals 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. House sleeps 10 and bungalow sleeps 4 for a total of 14 people. However, there is plenty of space should you wish to bring a blow up mattress or sleep on the charming carpeted Bay Window Seat. (Which also doubles as a cedar box for extra blankets.) The Bungalow provides extra space and privacy for those who prefer it. Also on property is a boat dock with a 36' slip, swim platform and boat ramp for pulling your boat in or out.

'Lost Weekend' is a one of a kind property with a picturesque setting. The land is level with NO STAIRS TO LAKE OR DOCK! It sits at the end of Kinchlow Hollow Cove at the 25 mile marker which is quiet, peaceful, great for swimming, floating, sunning or just fishing. There is plenty of parking - no need to worry about how many vehicles or boat trailers you need to park.

'Lost Weekend' has been recently remodeled with fresh paint, plush towels and luxury linens. With ceiling fans in every room nothing has-been- left- out as this home was finished with you in mind for a peaceful, relaxing vacation retreat. As we like to say at 'Lost Weekend' - 'Rest, Relax and Get Lost for the Weekend.'

The main house features tropical decor with 3 bedrooms on the main floor and 1 very large bedroom in the loft area. The Master Suite has a King Sized Bed, Soaking Tub, and a Walk-in-Shower with his and hers shower heads. The patio doors lead out to a cedar deck with a sunken 6 person hot tub. Bedroom # 2 also features a queen bed with private access to the hall bath. Bedroom # 3 has a king bed located at one end of the house. Upstairs the loft area features 2 full size beds and also doubles as the 'kids room' with toys, books, VCR and children's movies. All bedrooms have TV's with cable in each room.

The Great Room offers a wet bar complete with a sink and refrigerator and has seating for 6, a new 42' big screen TV with surround sound, a dvd player, and a beautiful bay window. In addition to the sofa and loveseat we also offer a pub table & chairs with 4 stools near the bar area, a table and chairs with seating for 4, and a half bath.

The kitchen is adjacent to the dining area which has a dining table with seating for 4, plus the bar/counter top has seating for 4 and 4 more at the pub table for a total of 12 in the kitchen/dining area. Should you have a great cook in your crowd, they'll be glad to know the kitchen has just about anything and everything you'll need. Lost Weekend's kitchen has plenty of dishes, pots & pans, baking dishes, coffee pots, etc

The Bungalow is a 1 bedroom, 1 bath with a full kitchen, as well as a washer and dryer. It comes with a queen bed and the sofa pulls out into a full size bed. The perfect place those who enjoy that little bit of extra privacy.

Outside you'll find a gas grill, lake side horseshoe pits, washer games, hot tub and a patio complete with a patio table & chairs, picnic table, and extra chairs. The beautiful yard has plenty of shade trees for those afternoon 'Happy Hours.'

By water 'Lost Weekend' is at the 25 mile marker and across the lake from Tan-Tara Resort.

A brand new 'Woods Grocery Store and Plaza' is just minutes from the house at the corner of TT & F Road. We do mean minutes. (like maybe 5 minutes)

By land we are located in Sunrise Beach off of TT - approximately 10 miles from the toll bridge and just minutes from shopping, water activities and the Bangnell Dam & the Strip. We are just minutes away from Hot Spots on the Lake- 'Franky & Louie's &, Captain Ron's, The Branding Iron and the new 'Pickleheads Road House'.

There's plenty of information for you regarding boat or wave runner rentals. To help guide you we also have menus from lake area restaurants, maps and information regarding all the hot spots at our beautiful Lake of the Ozarks.

Please don't hesitate to email or call should you have have any questions! We look forward to hearing from you!

About Leon & Cheryl Haberberger

We are originally from the St. Louis area. Leon, from Affton and Cheryl from Pacific. We lived in Pacific, Mo and bought Lost Weekend in 1999 and until 2001 we were 'part timers'. Owning a home but only using it on weekends. We then sold our cleaning business 'ServiceMaster' and moved to the lake full time in 2001. Then starting all over, we opened another 'ServiceMaster'.

Finally, in 2012 we sold that business and moved to Cape Coral, Florida full time and have since retired. We are enjoying the sunshine, the beach and retirement!

Leon & Cheryl Haberberger purchased this house in 1999

Why Leon & Cheryl Haberberger chose Lake of the Ozarks

We love the privacy of the property. That lay of the land is flat. No stairs! You can even drive right to the boat dock if you need to unload coolers, etc.

There is lots of wildlife. The deer are in abundance year round. They usually will drop by early in the morning or early evening.

What makes this house unique

Privacy, on the water, and no stairs!

Waking up in the morning and smiling knowing that you are at the lake:



Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay here was AWESOME! We had grandparents, parents, kids and grand babies. Space was perfect for all 12 of us. Weather was AWESOME. We rented a pontoon one day, went into Osage Beach for shopping one day and just enjoyed ourselves the other day. Thanks for having a large enough space for the whole family.

Family get-together

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Lost Weekend. The house met all our needs for space, plus individuals were able to get away from the group if they wanted. The house was clean and had plenty of outdoor furniture. The window seat was a favorite place to sit! Unfortunately for us, there was quite a bit of rain (mostly overnight) so we weren't able to have a fire or play many lawn games, but since we spent most of our time boating it wasn't a big deal for us. Leon and Cheryl were just a phone call away and very responsive.

Great place for an extended family

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week at this spacious home. The living space (kitchen/great room) is amazing. There are many "separate" areas for visiting, playing games, and laying around..... We enjoyed the NO STAIRS to the dock, and were able to get my 94 year old father down to the boat with no issues. Although there are 4 stairs down to the patio area, he had no issues as the porch is very sturdy for him to use to "hold on". It is a quiet cove, but fairly shallow, so we actually did most of our 'floating" by taking the boat out to a another nearby cove. My nephew was able to catch enough nice size catfish over the week right off the dock that we were able to have a fish fry. The 3 refrigerators and separate freezer were wonderful for our group, cutting down on trips for ice. We had a fair amount of teenagers, so at the end of the week, when everyone was here and the "adults" all had their own bedrooms, we used the 2 twin mattresses in the master closet and two blow up mattresses and made the living room a bit of a dormitory. Worked great. We had a couple of questions early in the week, and Leon and Cheryl addressed them very quickly. Thanks to them, we had a successful FUN week! We find it hard to go out for meals with this large of group, so we took a couple of boat trips during the day and visited Redhead Yacht Club and Paradise, which are very close and fun for a change. Some of us played golf at Sycamore Creek a couple times (about a half an hour away), which has beautiful scenery, is reasonably priced, and is great for groups of golfers who are varying in skill... The Woods Grocery (large) and a Dollar General are close by (10 minutes). We took a trip to the strip, but it seems to me the strip has less and less to do each year. Great ice cream at Grandpa's though!!! I'd highly recommend this home to family groups with varying ages of children. Thanks Leon and Cheryl!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this place for my In-Laws 40th Anniversary! The place was amazing! The kids loved fishing off the dock every poles seemed to do better than the adult poles. The house was great, we had 14 in our party and never used the the extra house, we had plenty of room in the main house!!

Family getaway

  • 4 of 5

There were 16 of us at the "lost weekend" house. Nice accommodations. Large kitchen and separate bungalow was perfect for one family with smaller (napping) children. Large shaded area between house and dock for outside games. No steps to get in the house or to the dock for mature adults. Great access to boat rentals and grocery store.

Excellent home!

  • 5 of 5

The home was excellent. It was nicely furnished, comfortable and not lacking for anything. The little notes dispersed throughout the home were a nice touch.

Summer Retreat!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time with our family at Lost Weekend. The weather was great and our grandkids had so much fun fishing from the dock. There was plenty of room for all 15 of us to spend time together for meals and games. We rented a pontoon boat one day and spent time on the lake sightseeing and swimming. Thanks for letting us unwind at this "home away from home".
