About the property

7 bedroom/3bath sleeps 21

Comfy lodge style home with beamed ceilings and 2 wood burning fireplaces. This home sits right at the waters edge--you can actually fish from every deck! Dining table seats everyone at once with huge full kitchen. Very large living room with plenty of seating for all--watch the water or the TV. 2 bedrooms are located 15 steps from main home in separate cottage with heat , a/c. Every room on the lake side of home has sliding doors out to the decks for easy access and great views. 4 well boat dock with deep year round water. Fish structure surrounds our dock and has been in place 15 years. Very good year round fishing. 2 bedrooms on main floor with kitchen, 2 baths, dining and living rooms. Lower level has 3 bedrooms, laundry and bath.

Located at the 4mm of the Osage arm in Jackson Branch Cove. We face east, and are 2nd point in from the mouth of the cove. So we have fabulous view of the main channel as well as the cove--with cove protection.

Peaceful area: We are in a quiet area--most of our neighbors are here on the weekends only. Our entire area is heavily wooded. If you want the hustle and bustle, you will have to drive to find it!

Our decks are set up so that you can close off the entrances with gates and contain small children. We have no street traffic to worry about. Our lot is very shaded and gentle.

We provide board games, cards, LP for the gas grill

2017 will bring 2 kayaks and remodeled separate cottage!

Why Tom Payne chose Lake of the Ozarks

Very gentle, wooded lot with a home that has cedar beamed ceilings. Decks are right over the water, which is very unusual here.

What makes this house unique

Can fish from every deck! Decks were built around the trees.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a really nice week and definitely enjoyed the boat and the dock. The house was super comfortable. We enjoyed spending the week together...all 14 of us:) We caught a 12 inch cat fish too.

The VRBO pics are good, but cannot do justice to this great property!

  • 5 of 5

The Payne property was perfect for our group of 12 adults, and would've easily handled 8 more. The comments and help given by the owners were timely, correct, and we ALWAYS got connected for any questions we had. A Grand Experience!

Great location on the lake.

  • 3 of 5

Great location on the lake but pretty far off main road. On a very quiet cove. Owner very helpful with problem with grill. Had a new one the next day. Property was clean and well maintained. We only had 10 people and could not have accommodated many more. We understand that the cottage will be getting a redo. We did not use it.

Becker Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Tom and Roxann provided a home that worked great for the nineteen of us from ages 80 years down to 14 years. We cooked all our meals at the house and found the kitchen to be well stocked. It was cool so the nephews kept a fire in the fireplaces and we had lots of good times and laughter in the common areas. Foosball provided fun and noise. We loved the views from the living area, the decks, and the bedrooms. Someday we hope to return.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was the 5th summer our family group of 12-14 members ranging from ages 4 months to 77 years old have enjoyed this lake house. The house is always clean and stocked with everything you might need. We enjoy relaxing, swimming and our family time together. If you are looking for a great place for your family to vacation I would highly recommend this property. Tom and Roxann are very helpful and easy to work with. We already have our vacation booked at this place for 2016!!!
