Overview

About the property

4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 10

Finn Inn welcomes you with its warm knotty pine interior and fantastic lake views. Relax on the deck with its gas grill and enjoy the lake view. Use the Weber grill and hang out by the beach while dinner cooks. Read a book in the air-conditioned sun room, or choose to play pool in the upstairs rec room. If it is rainy, watch movies in front of one of three large flat screen TVs with your Hulu, Netflix, and other premium channel membership, play your video games on the X-Box One, or play one of several games and puzzles provided. If sunny, take a swim, soak in the sun on the beach and swim dock, or fish off the dock. Enjoy the provided kayaks, paddle boat, paddle boards, and swim floats. Park your boat in the covered 10' x 30' slip available for you to use as well as cleats on the swim dock to tie off extra boats or Sea-doos. At night, sit around the fire on the beach, and roast marshmallows for s'mores,

We are located near the 6 mile marker on the Gravois Arm located in a quiet cove off of Soap Creek, and minutes away from the most popular restaurant/bars on the lake. The community has a launch ramp for putting in your boats or PWCs.

Places nearby: Fill up your boat with gas from the Gas Hole or The Jerk Shack both just short distance from the cove; experience traditional Jamaican food at The Jerk Shack (home of the famous "Bob Marley") . Two miles away by boat, enjoy the public beach, bar and restaurant at Coconuts, the "pirate life" at The Jolly Rogers Grub & Grog, and the food and drink at Richard Noggins, Frogs, and many other restaurants located near the house. H. Toad, Shady Gators, and Lazy Gators are within 7 miles by water on the 7 MM of the main channel. The town of Laurie is about 8 miles by car from the house and has everything you need for groceries, bait, cinema, restaurants, medical care and golf. Harbour Hills Convenience Store is conveniently located on P Road for those last minute items. The outlet mall, Bagnell Dam Strip, go-karts, water parks, miniature golf, and other activities are located on the East side of the lake about 40 miles by car. Bridal Cave, Frankie and Louie's and Captain Ron's activities are a 20 minute ride from the house.

If you like to entertain you will love the convenience and open concept layout of the home. On the entry level you will find a large Master Bedroom with a king sized bed, private bath, and balcony; a well-equipped kitchen with a large island and bar stools; a dining area with seating for at least 6; a second full bath; and the main living area opening up to the sun room, deck and wrap-around porch. Walk up the steps to the second level rec room and enjoy the media center and pool table. Off of the rec room are three bedrooms: one king, one queen, and one queen with a set of bunk beds. The first floor king is a standard plush mattress; the second floor king bedrooms has a Sleep Number mattress; the two upstairs queen beds have plush top mattresses; the bunk beds have twin sized mattresses.

We furnish dishes, silverware, drink ware, appliances; kitchen towels, bed linens, bath towels, and beach towels (if you forgot your own). We also supply a starter supply of paper towels, toilet paper, trash bags, bath and hand soap, dish detergent, cleaning supplies, and laundry detergent. Please bring extra supplies for a large group, together with your own additional beach towels, personal toiletries, camera, fishing rods, floaties and sunscreen. In the garage there are some life vests, fishing rods, coolers and beach toys available to you. We do not have life vests in every size so we recommend you bring your own. We have a set of binoculars for bird watching. We also provide starter firewood for the fire pit. Additional wood bundles may be purchased at Harbour Hills Convenience Store. Please do not bring in wood from outside the Ozarks area so we can help prevent bug infestation and tree disease.

The Inn has been in operation since 2011 and has consistently received 5 star ratings from its guests: "Awesome vacation home"; "Another Wonderful Week at the Finn Inn!"; "Wonderful spot for gathering with friends"; "PERFECT family spot at the Ozarks". Since April 2015 the Inn has been under new ownership but continues to provide the same great 5 Star experience.

Come stay at the Finn Inn and make some memories!

About Bill and Meg Bromfield

Meg, our three boys and I live in Bainbiridge Island, Washington. In the summer of 2013 we came to the lake for a one week visit to my sister, Kathy Emke. We were skeptical about whether we were "lake people" but, as our visit extended into a second week, we realized we were. During our Summer 2014 visit we were told that the previous owners had moved to Washington State and were possibly interested in selling Finn Inn. We jumped at the chance to purchase our own lake home and closed on the sale in April 2015. Since closing, we have been making changes to meet our family's needs and are hopeful that the upgrades will make the Inn an even better place for our guests to vacation.

Bill and Meg Bromfield purchased this house in 2015

Why Bill and Meg Bromfield chose Lake of the Ozarks

Finn Inn is located in a quiet family-oriented cove where my family can paddle boat, paddle board, water ski, swim, fish and boat. The house is large so it can accommodate our extended families. The house has the charm of the original small, knotty pine summer cabin with all the amenities of a modern day house. The neighbors have lived in the surrounding houses for generations which appealed to our sense of community. The house is also two doors from my sister's in-law's house that they have owned since 1984, and next to the house where my father now vacations.

What makes this house unique

The large, open main level provides a place for everyone to be together cooking, watching TV, playing games, or just hanging out. The second floor rec room is a great place for playing pool, video games, movie watching, or just getting away from the crowd. The wrap-around deck allows guest in the first floor master bedroom to slip outside for a quiet morning coffee or join the others on the main deck. The sun porch provides a panoramic view of the cove and Soap Creek so you won't miss the fog lifting off the water in the morning or the sunset in the evening. Enjoy sitting out on the private beach with a good book while everyone else swims off the dock during the day and enjoy roasting marshmallows in our fire pit in the evening.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We absolutely LOVED the Finn Inn! It was our first time putting our boat on the water this season and we had some problems. The community and surrounding neighbors helped immensely however they could. Everyone was SO friendly :) The house was absolutely beautiful and the layout worked perfectly for our large group. Dinners were so easy to cook with all of items available in the kitchen as well! The weather wasn't the best, but because of the location, we could still venture out during the breaks in rain because we were so close to some our favorite places. We will most definitely be back next year to stay at the Finn Inn again! Thank you so much for having us!

Wonderful vacation at the Finn Inn!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th year at the Finn Inn and we love it. The home is so nice and in a great location. Kiddos loved taking the paddle boat in the quiet cove. Owners were very quick to respond with any issues.

Finn Inn is the perfect location for a wonderful Ozark!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row that my family has spent a week at Finn Inn. It is the perfect spot on the lake. A quiet cove with wonderful neighbors. Big kitchen to fix family meals, large deck to eat them on. Sleeping for 10 makes it very comfortable. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation on the lake. We've already booked for next year. It goes quickly.

Very Relaxing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED the Finn Inn. Very well maintained home with plenty of room for 10. We were 6 adults and 4 children. Were able to enjoy the porches for morning coffee, to play games, and have a light meal. The home has a great upstairs area with two bedroom and a third very large bedroom along with a large area for lounging and watching tv or playing pool. Very clean when we arrived. The kids loved the beach area and the dock where we caught a few fish for an evening dinner. We hope to return to the Finn Inn as we felt like it was our own home very cozy and relaxing.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Lynn! We are so happy that your family enjoyed their stay at the Inn. We've been continuously updating the interior of the house to make sure that we live up to all the wonderful reviews, including yours. This year we turned our attention to the outdoors and updated the dock and beach adding new dock furniture, kayaks, paddle boards, pool noodles, and inflatables to make sure your family had everything you needed to have a perfect family vacation. Sounds like your family did so we are thrilled. You and your family are great guests. Come back and see us next year! Kathy, Bill and Meg

Great place for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent our Thanksgiving holiday at the Finn Inn. It was a great place to relax and enjoy some family time. The home was clean, comfortable and well-equipped. The owner and manager were friendly and easy to work with. This was a great place to stay during the off-season and I'm sure would be even better in the summer.
