Perfect location, perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it!!! It was even nicer than we had even hoped for. The bedrooms are far away from the dining/living room so you can have quiet/private if needed. Swimming is great. House is easy to get to. 3 showers / bathrooms! It's a super quiet/calm cove, we loved that! We would absolutely stay again. We went to Bott's farm and fed the animals, made a trip to Ha Ha State park (which was only about 30 min from the house) Jacob's cave was less than 30 min too. All around great house & location

Very Quiet! Nice Neighbors! Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at the lake house. It was a lovely home with great access to the water. The home was very clean and provided everything you will need to enjoy a relaxing stay. The neighbors were very kind and inviting. We had a great time swimming, boating, fishing and just enjoying life. I would highly recommend a stay in this wonderful home. I know we will be back! Thank you!

Great house...great owners & caretakers...great vacation !!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house. Everything was in perfect order, very clean upon arrival and Joyce was very helpful during our arrival. We loved the backyard & dock and enjoyed swimming, boating and fishing. We'd definitely return and hope to next year if possible. Joyce also had a great recommendation for a boat rental for us which was perfect for our needs.

Owner's Response: Great review. This place rocks. The Gnomes and their cute house and garden bring good vibes to the property. Love the exotic animals at Bott's Farm on the road to the house. They love to be petted. Buck Creek Store has the best pizza and deli sandwiches. They have everything you need, beer cave to bait. And just a mile away! You will see walkers and runners all over the area. Have to watch out for them and four wheelers making visits to Buck Creek Store. Thank you. Joyce

The house is located on a very large lot. It is nicely landscaped and there is a gentle walk to the lake and dock. This house and lot are handicap friendly. There is plenty of level parking. The house and lot are located on the 3 MM of the Gravois Arm in Gladstone Cove. You can view beautiful sunsets from the back deck. A water taxi is available to take you to the many hotspots on the Lake such as Coconuts, Jolly Rogers, Bumps Barefoot Bar, the Jerk Shack, Camden on the Lake, Shady Gators, Lazy Gators, Momma's Market, to name just a few. The cove is excellent for fishing and there are crappie beds around the covered one slip dock available at no extra cost. There is a swim deck attached to the dock area for sunning or jumping in. (You must bring your own water toys) There is a quaint convenient store nearby. It is well stocked. It has a beer cave, wine, liquor, assorted meats, deli sandwiches, pizza, and bait. A nearby estate has zebras, camels, horses, ostriches, donkey, sheep, and emus that the kids can stop and pet. Golf and movies are also nearby. Laurie has a big park with an indoor aquatic center, playground, Frisbee golf, and pickle ball court. Laurie also has a large grocery store and greenhouse where you can buy all of your supplies including liquor and rent movies.
