|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
The Norton House sits right on the Lake with a breathtaking view of the Big Niangua arm and features hardwood floors and a newly renovated kitchen (2013) with granite countertops, new flat screen televisions and free wi-fi. There are 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths plus two additional queen roll-out sofas. All 3 bedrooms have queen beds.
Enjoy Sugarloaf Vineyards picnic grounds and kayaking, relax on the patio and watch the boating activity, grill your supper or eat out, then let the sound of nature lull you to sleep at night.
The Norton House is located at the Sugarloaf Vineyards west of Camdenton right where the Big Niangua tributary changes from a river to the Lake of the Ozarks. You'll be 'lured' to the Lake where the fishing is amazing for catfish, bass, crappie and walleye. Or play golf at either of two courses, Lake Valley Country club or Old Kinderhook (a Tom Weiskoph signature course).
One of the best features of this property and its sister rental, The Chardonel House, is the easy access to the Lake of the Ozarks. Nestled within the vines of the Sugarloaf Vineyard property you can walk to the Lake shore and enjoy the picnic grounds, fishing, or kayaking activities. You have free access to either a single or tandem kayak for the length of your stay and can pack a nice picnic lunch and your favorite beverages to enjoy while leisurely paddling the Niangua.
No matter what your perception of a perfect vacation is, you won't be disappointed with the relaxation and serene feeling you will have when you leave this refreshing property!
Owners are Ward & Barb Morris who moved to the Lake in 1985 and raised our 3 children in one of the most beautiful locales in the U.S.! Barb owned and operated several Lake area restaurants over the past 27 years and enjoys the fine art of cooking and especially, pairing food with wine! Ward takes weekend breaks from his Computer Consulting career to tend to over 1000 grapevines on the property and looks forward each fall to harvest time.
Barb Morris purchased this house in 2000
This property is adjacent to Ward & Barb's home and was purchased to expand the vineyard and now, opening in May of 2013, the Sugarloaf Vineyard Tasting bar with food pairings, occasional music and great friends! Our motto has always been, 'come to our place and we'll treat you like family'!
We fell in love with the quiet of the Lake and especially the Niangua Arm tributary with it's amazing wildlife. During the month February you can often spot as many as 700 great white Pelicans feeding on Lake fish for as long as 2 weeks as they migrate. This actually inspired the name of one of Sugarloaf Vineyards wines; the White Pelican, a dry white Chardonel. Other birdlife includes the great bald eagle, blue herons, egrets, seagulls, hawks, owls and host of other. In March, you can spot beautiful red foxes siring their new pups and of course, several deer like to walk through the vineyard and eat Ward's grapes (to his chagrin)! It's a great family setting for reunions or to get away from the city.
We really enjoyed our stay. Plenty of room for 5 people to have their own space. Cozy home w/ a beautiful view. Barb & Ward are wonderful hosts. Even down to coming jump our truck off because the battery died.
This is an amazing property. The kitchen and bathrooms are recently updated. The beds are exceptionally comfortable and the sheets have a really high thread count. It's easy to find but tucked away for ultimate privacy. We cannot wait to return.
Stayed for a 3 day weekend and really enjoyed ourselves!!! Was just a really nice relaxing weekend. Can't ask for better hosts!!!
This beautiful location is exactly everything they say it is! The Norton House is a perfect place to relax and unwind. The staff is very friendly and hospitable. We enjoyed being just steps away from good wine & food, entertainment (a musician on Friday evening) and of course the water and kayaking! What more could you want?? Thanks Barb, Ward and all your staff for making our Sister's Trip this year absolutely perfect!
This was our second stay at the Norton House and we hope to return often. The accommodations are excellent! We love that we are able to bring our dog with us to the lake. The owners are friendly and provide all the necessary details for making your stay hassle-free. You will not find a more fun, friendly environment than the Sugarloaf Winery. We love the atmosphere. They have a wonderful indoor/outdoor setting. The food is excellent as well as the wine and beer. The service is fantastic, too! It's wonderful to be able to take a short walk from the house to enjoy an afternoon or evening out.
