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.
WHY WE FELL IN LOVE
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.
WHY YOU WILL FALL IN LOVE
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!

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 with adirondack chairs 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. Please note we don't recommend bringing motorcycles as we have a gravel road leading to the cottage.
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.

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 Rocky Mount
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. We offer many ways to enjoy the lake including a fire pit on the water's edge and free water toys (1 paddle boat and 2 kayaks are included in the stay).

Fantastic home away from home.
A group of friends and I shared this, clean, well maintained, stylishly decorated home with great lake views for a week. Very comfortable beds and bedrooms that accomodated the whole group. Living room had great couches, plenty of seating, great fireplace! We like to cook together and found the kitchen to be well stocked with plenty of room to work and ample seating at the table at meal time. The deck is huge and would have been another great place to eat meals if only the weather was a little better. We enjoyed the firepit at lake level and the peacefulness of a clear night. The area has so much to offer: hiking, shopping, restaurants, boating, fishing. Make sure to check the local paper for other offerings like bingo and fish frys. You can be very busy or just relax and take it easy. Owners are very friendly and courteous. I highly recommend this home away from home and hope to come back soon.
We really enjoyed our stay, the property was clean upon arrival and had everything we needed during our stay. We were comfortable with 4 adults, 3 kids, and our 2 dogs. We will be back for sure!
Thanks for your kind words! We'd love to have you back again. Thanks, Heidi
The property is beautiful. Easy to find. It was nice and peaceful.
Once I learned my way around it was easy to navigate between there and activities. The house was quiet we enjoyed our stay. The water in the downstairs shower did not get hot but other than that it was a spectacular weekend.
Thank you for your kind words. It is definitely a peaceful getaway in the winter months with how quiet and still the lake is. We'd love to have you back sometime.
This cabin was awesome. Plenty of room for everyone, beautiful view of the lake. It snowed while we were there and because we went in the winter we practically had the whole lake to ourselves. It was very calming and peaceful there. This cabin is well maintained for the most part (broken shower head hook made showing interesting in the upstairs bathroom), but you can tell the owners love and take care of this property. I would stay here again if the opportunity came up.
Thank you, Allie! We're so glad you enjoyed the peaceful time you had at the lake. Sorry about the troubles with the shower head, we do have that fixed now as we remodeled the upstairs bathroom with a new shower head and new flooring shortly after your stay! We'd love to have you again sometime.
The property was great! Everything we needed for our families Thanksgiving was there.
The downstairs bathroom hot water was actually on the cold side, even with the bathtub facet, nothing major, except we didn't figure it out until our last day. We could not get the speakers on the back deck working. We could not get the rope lights to the dock to come on. But other than those issues, I would highly recommend this location to anyone. It was nice and quiet, all amenities were there. LOVED the fireplace!!
We are so glad to hear you had a wonderful Thanksgiving stay. Thank you for letting us know about some of the things that weren't working correctly during your stay, we're looking into fixing each of those. Glad you enjoyed the fireplace, we just got that working again for our winter guests and we're so glad to hear it's already getting some use! Thanks again, we are so thankful you chose our home to celebrate your Thanksgiving holiday!
The cottage was perfect! The view was awesome! The cottage was well equipped with all the comforts of home. Perfect for a large family. Not far from places to dine. And so quite at night! A peaceful get away!
We're so glad to hear you found all the comforts of home, we try to think of everything you may need to cook a meal and/or relax while you're on vacation. Thank you again and hope to see you again soon!
