About the property

Beautiful 5 Bedroom 4 1/2 Bathroom House On The Lake. Each Room Has A Lake View!

Our Lovely Lake House is a three-story home with five bedrooms. Upon entering, you walk in to the main level. Upstairs from the main level there are four bedrooms:

1. Prairie Room: King bed with lovely linens; private 3/4 bath, custom-tiled; vaulted ceiling with ceiling fan; lake view; piano (for music lovers!).

2. Heritage Room - 2 Full size beds with luxurious linens and comforters; vaulted ceiling with ceiling fan; lake view; delightful library; large dresser; electric fire place; full bathroom across the hall.

3. Woodland Room - has a King bed, view of the lake and woods, vaulted ceiling and ceiling fan, large dresser and bookshelves (with books!); Full bath across the hall - shared with the Heritage Room.

4. Master Rm & Bath - has a King sized, pillow-top bed, 5 windows overlooking the lake, cedar-planked vaulted ceilings, ceiling fan, vanity table and large full bathroom with windows overlooking the lake.

Downstairs from the main level:

5. Lakeside Level Suite - 2 Queens, pillow top beds with luxurious bedding; custom, heavy, wood furniture imported from Brazil; ceiling fan; lake view; private, full bathroom, walk out to lake.

There are also 2 single roll-away beds stored in the heater closet to the left of the bathroom on the Lakeside level, as well as 2 Queen sofa-sleepers – one in the main living area of the Lakeside Level, as well as one on the living room on the main level.

The house is about 40 yards from the water, with lots of open space in between. We provide lawn furniture, a charcoal grill, a bonfire area, and a sandbox for small children.

*** There's a canoe and kayak available for use (no charge) - to take a peaceful glide out on to the lake! ***

We do not have a boat dock, but we do have steps that lead down to the water, as well as a gentle walk down area to the lower left of the property. There is often beach area available, depending on the water level. In the past, we've kept our pontoon anchored in the water (an option for anyone bringing a boat).

Here is a link for nearby boat ramps- Viola, Kings River, Viney Creek, etc. (copy and paste to your address bar):

There are several places nearby to rent boats or slips:

• Shell Knob, MO - 20 minutes

• Eagle Rock, MO - 15 minutes

• Holiday Island, AR - 20 minutes

• Kimberling City - 30 minutes

*** Kings River Marina in Shell Knob, MO is the one most frequented by guests- it's about 20 minutes to/from the Lake House, whether by car or boat.***

You can also fish right in our back yard! We've caught catfish, white bass, big mouth bass, perch, and more standing on the shore or out in our boat. You can purchase a fishing license online or at most gas stations or stores in the area.

If you need to find somewhere for the family to enjoy a holiday or long weekend, away from the hustle of the city, you are in the right place! This is great for family reunions and any occasion that warrants a celebration!

It was quiet and peaceful. The water shining in the sun, the beds- so comfortable!!!

Great Family Get Away

  • 4 of 5

This house is very private and away from the hustle and bustle. We really enjoyed the kayak and canoe. The fishing was decent, right off the banks. The beach area could be cleaned up a bit. The house is well kept and roomy. The water pressure isn't very good and there is a serious lack of towels. Overall, we had a blast playing outside, drinking coffee on the deck and playing cards, in the evenings.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the kayaking and peaceful atmosphere! Thank you for your feedback - we've addressed the towel situation, and they will be well stocked from now on!

Great for a big family. Worked well for a wheelchair. Provided our own ramp for front porch

  • 4 of 5

Worked very well for family member in an electric wheelchair! He could enter the mid level through the front porch with a ramp he brought and the lakeside level was perfect for him to enter and he was able to get his wheelchair in the bathroom! The property is not upscale, but very practical for large groups and child friendly. We had a wonderful time. The children swam and fished and kayaked at the property shore and there was a nice sandbar just around the bend.

Beautiful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time at the lake house for a big family reunion. Scenery is amazing! No cell service, but that may be what we all needed to enjoy each other's company that much more! Kayak and canoe were great to have ready to go at any time of day and enjoy the scenery. Brian and Jennifer were so responsive with anything that was needed. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your beautiful lake house!
