"We loved everything about this house. Plenty of room inside and out for a large group. We spent most of our time boating, swimming off the dock and sitting on the deck in the evenings. This house will be our first choice when we return!"

"We had a group of 10 guys stay here and the home was amazing. Plenty of room for all of us and the back deck was incredible. If you're looking for night life/bars it seemed to be a little far from everything but otherwise it was great."

"We have been bringing our family of 18 for 5 years this is the first place we have ever wanted to return to! This house was the most clean inside and out that we have rented ! It was the best stocked house! It was great having extra fridges! I was very worried about he air conditionimg due to reviews but we have a week of 90 plus and had no problems! Plus there are fans in closets as well! Can't say enough about the dock! The kids loved the snack shack! They only thing they wanted was a platform to jump from! The cove is perfect! We will be returning! Booking it as soon as we can!"

"Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us! We greatly enjoyed our time at the beach, boating, tubing, ziplining, bbquing, hiking, exploring the caves (bridal cave), making smores in the firepit, playing Star Wars Monopoly, foosball, and xbox (the latter 3 were HUGE hits with the kids)! This was our 1st annual family trip and will DEFINITELY be hard to beat! We had 3 generations of the family ranging from 5 3/4 to 74 and there was truly something for everyone!"

"Wow! What an amazing, relaxing couple of days! From the drive here, to laying out on the dock. From singing to fixing puzzles. From floating in the lake to using the marco polo app :-) friendships were strengthened and lifelong memories were made. Thanks so much for letting us come here and get away from the business of life, rejuvenating us for the weeks to come!"

"Memorial Day 2018 - A group of 16 of us stayed at this house for Memorial Day 2018. The home has everything you want from large bedrooms with plenty of beds for everyone. The decks were great for hanging out and watching the fireworks. The dock was great and having the extra fridge on the dock was perfect. The dock does get very hot so bring a bucket or a water gun to spray it down. Overall this house was great and we had zero complaints and would return for a future trip."

"Great home for a large group! Home overall was clean and met our needs as a large group. The large deck made for fun evenings sitting outside and enjoying the lake atmosphere. The location is very convenient. Our only complaint is that the air conditioning had trouble keeping the home comfortably cool throughout a hot July week."

RESPONSE: "Thanks for your review of our property! We really appreciate the feedback! This is one of our most popular homes and is situated in a great location close to everything in Osage Beach. We did have a long run of hot days in July this year and had a few properties (especially a couple of the larger ones) that had a little trouble keeping up due to the near 100 degree temps for a few weeks. We have found that if you leave the fan in the on position it helps to circulate the air on a continuous basis throughout the entire home as opposed to shutting off and parts of the home getting warm while waiting for the AC to kick back on. We have had fewer problems with our larger homes when setting the AC in this manner. Thanks again and we hope to see you in the future!" Russell Burdette, Owner/Broker
"House and facilities wer great. Loved that all the baths were outside of the bedrooms. This made them more accessible by all when it was time to cleanup. One huge mishap though. Half way between my grilling process I realized that the heat from the grill had melted some of the siding. Needles to say it was a hot grill. The grill was blocked so it was about a foot or so away from the house. But you could see on the deck the blocking had been moved out from being closer to the house. So be careful when using the grill."
