About the property

4 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage with large deck & wifi, pet friendly!

Imagine drinking your cup of coffee in the crisp morning air with an amazing view of the sun bouncing off the calm lake water in all directions. Any season at Lake of the Ozarks is an amazing time of year to visit and this cottage will give you the perfect experience. Whether you’re here to play in the sun, shop, fish, hunt, visit wineries or just get away from it all - this is where you’ll want to unwind at the end of the day.


You will love this Lake of the Ozarks cottage. We purchased this lake house property in January of 2006 after searching for a year for the perfect lake house rental and we’ve been renting ever since. The house is situated close to the water for easy access and sits in a calm cove for peaceful days. This cottage is perfect for vacationers because that's exactly what we had in mind during our search for a cottage rental.


We have tried to think of everything you will need to relax while you’re on vacation. You’ll find the house is well furnished and stocked, comfortable, CLEAN, close to the water with minimal steps, situated in a quiet cove, and great for big families (including your furry members). Yes, we are PET FRIENDLY!


This rental easily has enough room for two average-size families with 1500 square feet of living space.

***New for 2017: Brand new mattresses in ALL bedrooms! You will sleep amazing in these after a fun day on the lake :).

KITCHEN: The large kitchen is well equipped with utensils, pots, pans, coffee maker, etc. along with all the appliances you will need for your vacation including a dishwasher.

LAUNDRY: There is also a full-size stackable washer and dryer for your convenience.

LIVING ROOM: The lake house rental has three TVs with cable service along with a DVD player. The living room has a large 50' Plasma TV with a DVD, CD player, Receiver and four tower speakers. There is also a hook-up for your IPOD or MP3 player.

The living area is off the kitchen and the kitchen/ dining area is on the first level. It is a very large area with plenty of comfortable seating and one pull out couch. I'll say it again, we chose this lake house for its vacationer-friendly attributes.


-Bedroom 1: First floor bedroom has a NEW QUEEN size bed along with a 19' TV.

-Bedroom 2: Second floor bedroom which has two NEW Full size beds.

-Bedroom 3: Second floor bedroom with a NEW QUEEN size bed.

-Bedroom 4: Second floor bedroom with NEW QUEEN size bed and has a door out to a balcony over-looking the beautiful lake. This room also has a TV/DVD.


-Bathroom 1: Located on the first floor across from Bedroom 1 with tub and shower.

-Bathroom 2: Located on the second floor next to Bedroom 2 with tub and shower.

WIFI: Free Wifi!


DECK: The single-level deck overlooking Lick Branch Cove on Lake of the Ozarks is approximately 600 square feet. The view is awesome since the cottage is located just inside a smaller cove for calm water fishing with a great lake view of the very large Lick Branch Cove. There is ample parking for as many as four cars right next to the lake house.

The large deck comfortably seats around 20 people with two tables and plenty of extra chairs. There are also 2 outdoor speakers on the deck and a charcoal Weber grill for a memorable BBQ overlooking the lake.

Near the water, you'll find a built-in fire pit on the water's edge for a late night conversation with s'mores!

PARKING: If you are familiar with the Lake of the Ozarks area, you know how hilly it is. This lake house rental allows for very easy access from your car. The front door is just a couple feet away and there is parking area available for 4 cars! In addition to that, getting to the lake or dock from the cottage is also no problem.

DOCK: There are only a few steps down to the lake where there is a floating single well covered dock. (WE CAN'T STRESS ENOUGH HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO FIND A LAKE HOUSE WITH A FAIRLY LEVEL LOT HERE IN THE OZARKS!) The dock has a swim platform with a ladder and will fit a 30 foot boat.


Lake of the Ozarks is a very popular tourist area with plenty of shopping within a 20 minute drive. There is a very large mall in Osage Beach with 110 factory outlet type stores. Osage Beach also has plenty of restaurants including popular chain restaurants such as Applebee's, Outback Steak House, Panera Bread, Chili's, and Bandana's among others... But, be sure to check out the local restaurants that offer some very good food as well as breathtaking views. Michael's Steak Chalet is one of our favorites. Great food and even better view of the main channel of the lake from high on a bluff.

You'll find many restaurant/bars along the lakeshore by boat too. There are also places nearby that have boat rentals and personal watercraft rentals. You'll find many go-cart tracks and other activities for the family including the historic Bagnell Dam area.

If you are interested in renting a boat: Contact Iguana Boat Rentals. Iguana boat rentals is about 2 minutes by car and 1 minute by water. There are many other boat rental companies in the area so if you need more information just ask!


THIS LAKE HOUSE WILL NOT BE RENTED TO GROUPS UNDER THE AGE OF 25. (SUCH AS BACHELOR / BACHELORETTE PARTIES, SENIOR TRIPS ETC.) If we do agree to rent to a group under 25 years of age, we will require a larger damage deposit.

Thank you for stopping by!

About Heidi

Our love for the Lake of the Ozarks began in 1980 when we vacationed here for our Honeymoon! We (Peggy and Dave) then began vacationing here every summer with our family in 1989 and eventually bought our first home here in 1994.

After 10 incredible summers at this house, we decided to move from Oswego, IL (Chicago suburb) to Rocky Mount, MO full-time. We loved our original house too much to let it go and decided to keep the house as a rental property for other families to enjoy like we did!

We enjoyed renting our lake house so much, we decided to look for another vacation home to purchase. After a year of searching, we found Echo Valley in 2006 and have been renting it ever since.

As full-timers here, we are very familiar with the area and can help you with any questions you may have during your stay - from where to put your boat in, which restaurants to check out or where the closest convenience store is - we've got you covered! We're also just a short boat ride or drive away if you should need anything.

Update: As of January 2014, Dave and Peggy's daughter, Heidi, and son-in-law, Eric, have become co-owners with us. They reside in St. Louis and have stayed in this lake house rental a few times every year with a group of their friends. They can tell you from experience what a great rental house it is with groups- large or small.

Heidi purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Heidi chose Lake of the Ozarks

This cottage is situated very nicely inside a cove within a larger cove so if privacy is important to you, it doesn't get much better than this at The Lake of the Ozarks.

What makes this cabin unique

This cottage has 85' of lake frontage and close to many popular restaurant / bars on the lake. The view of the lake from the deck is remarkable.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our couples weekend at the lake. It had everything we needed to feel at home. We cooked in one night and the cabin had everything we needed to bake in the oven and cook on the stove. We had 10 people and there was plenty of plates, cups, & utensils. Another plus was how comfortable the bed was, soft and comfy! We also spent 2 evenings hanging out on the large deck.

The cabin was very clean and well taken care of.

We hired a boat taxi and enjoyed part of the day at a local bar/restaurant. There was plenty of activities to do on the lake had we chosen to do so.

We will definitely stay here again and I will be recommending this cottage to my friends.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing to complain about, spacious, comfortable, lakeside view... Loved it! We came down from MN to meet up with friends from Indiana for the week. I rented a fishing boat for the week, weather and fish didn't cooperate but that's fishing. Went to the Bridal Caves, enjoyed the tour, beautiful formations in there! The only downside is that any entertainment, dining is 25 minutes away, not horrible but it gets old wasting an hour both ways driving.

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed your stay and were able to get some fishing in! We do have a few local restaurants and gas stations within 10 minutes of the house if you don't want to go into the main part of town which is about 20-25 minutes. Thanks again!

Quiet and scenic and incredibly friendly locals!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay. We had our 4 kids and dog with us. With such a big family, It is so hard to find a place where EVERYONE has their own room and space to move around. The kids had so much fun hiking in the hills and playing on the lake shore while my husband and I relaxed on the huge deck. The water is absolutely beautiful and clear! Although it was still to cold to get in. We also got to see lots of wildlife, even a bald eagle! The house was very clean and we loved that it had wifi. We own our own online company and we have to fill orders every day, so it is very difficult for us to ever get out of town. We were able to take the kids on a vacation AND run our business! The post office was just a few miles away!! The neighbors, locals and the town near by blew us away. Everyone was so incredibly kind and welcoming. We are Texans so we are used to kindness and manners (so I thought). But it turns out people in Missouri and at Lake of the Ozarks were much more kind to strangers than any Texan! That really meant a lot to me personally. We also loved the food in the near by town. You should definitely visit Lil' Rizzos when you are in town!! JB Hooks was also wonderful. We will come back to stay at this house for sure! I highly recommended it for anyone looking for a quiet getaway with beautiful views! Thank you for helping make our stay in Missouri unforgettable!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the house and experienced some great Missourian hospitality as well :). We think the house works very well for families and multi-families like your because of the large open living space and deck. They are great spaces to enjoy some time on the lake with family! We hope you all can visit us again soon!

Cabin on the Lake

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was very spacious. Indeed, it was steps from the lake. The problem we had was we had mentioned before booking that there would be motorcycles coming to this cabin. It would have been nice to have been informed that there were very steep, rutted, inclines on loose gravel which made it impossible to bring 800 pound motorcycles to this cabin. Luckily, we were able to house our motorcycles at the Lake of the Ozark Harley Davidson for free (the owner of the cabin suggested we keep them at his friends house above the entrance where it turned into gravel.... for a mere $20 per motorcycle.... really?). We had a car there and just shuttled ourselves back and forth to the dealership. I know its a business to rent this cabin, but you should also take into consideration if the property and location will fit the needs of the people wanting to rent, given the information they have supplied. I guess all in all, it worked out. The only other thing that was annoying was the light in the kitchen area had fluorescent tubes and one would not light. Made it dark in the kitchen when we returned and were trying to prepare dinner.

Owner's Response: We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you faced with your motorcycles while staying at our home. We have certainly taken it as a learning experience as this was the first we've encountered this feedback in our years of renting this home. The gravel road is narrow and a little steep in some areas (fairly common for lake houses in this area) but has typically not been an issue for the majority of vehicles that have stayed with us over the 10+ years of renting our home. Guests have always loved that we have flat parking for 4 cars with the front door just a couple feet away, making it very easy to get the car loaded and unloaded. That said, RVs and motorcycles are not typically recommended due to road conditions.

Great Rental Property

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very well. The place was clean, spacious, and had everything you could possible need for your stay. The owners were superb to work with and most accommodating to anything you might need or questions you might need answered. Our only minor problem was trying to get into the property pulling a boat through a very narrow and rough gravel road. We would recommend this rental property but would advise of the one-way narrow entrance on the street side as had we known that we would have went ahead and put the boat in first at Coffman, but no worries, my husband is an excellent driver. I know he would love that I said that about him :) The view was remarkable from the deck and the fire pit was used almost nightly as it was a nice addition to a rental property. Again, a highly recommended rental property.

Owner's Response: Thank you! The view is one of our favorite parts of the house as well- great place to catch some beautiful sunsets. The road is narrow and gravel so anyone coming with a boat should be warned but we do have a great place on the main part of the road where you can store it or put it in the water for a minimum charge. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay!
