About Mary Hamlett

We love the lake, We like to fish, and to entertain and cook. We both have worked in the hospitality field for many years. We enjoy meeting people from other places.We alway's want to see everyone have a memorable experience at the lake.

Mary Hamlett purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Mary Hamlett chose Lake of the Ozarks

We chose this location because it is in a peaceful cove, the sun sets are looking out of the cove, it is absolutly beautiful also we wanted to be on the water and this cottage is at the waters edge. This cove is where the skiers seek to ski, nice calm water.

What makes this cottage unique

Easy access, lake views from all bedrooms, and of course the spa on the lower deck under the stars. Only 5 steps to the water!!

WOW!!! We had an awesome time there let me tell you!

  • 5 of 5

We just wanted to drop you an email in regards to our stay at your cottage. WOW!!! We had an awesome time there let me tell you!

The place was so quaint, clean and well stocked with whatever you needed. I felt at home the minute I walked in. However, the fishing was not so good but we understand that you cant have everything, haha.

I, Lisa, did everything on my bucket list for that stay from jumping off the diving board that mike said we could use to somewhat swimming with our family dog, " Chloe". She by the way kept herself very entertained with the passing flies on the back deck for days, haha, she loved it!!!

So once again, thank you for making our vacation so memorable and we will definitely consider coming back next year.

Honeymoon Heaven......

  • 5 of 5

A slice of "honeymoon heaven"......we rented the cabin for the newly weds and they truly felt away from it all....yet everything the lake had to offer was available within a few minutes drive. Our daughter said the view was BEAUTIFUL....lots of room inside the cabin and they cooked in most of the time because the kitchen was well stocked with for cooking and and the deck perfect for grilling and relaxing. Mary and Mike (owners) were SO KIND...(even left them a little wedding present in the fridge!) If you want to make memories....this is your spot !!!

We had a wonderful time. The only regret was the short stay. We were even treated to fireworks while sitting in the hot tub at the end of the night. Lots of wildlife for nature lovers.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our weekend stay at this cottage on the lake. The owners were very nice to work with and made sure everything was in order for our stay. It was very relaxing and perfect for a weekend getaway. The hot tub was great and my daughter loved the paddle boat. If ever we need another relaxing weekend, we would definitely stay here again.
