“Lovely B&B with lovely hosts”

This was our first experience of Osage Beach, and it turned out to be a truly memorable vacation for us. We cannot give enough credit to John and Marge who largely enabled us to get involved in the various activities on offer around the lakes. Having arrived with no plan at all, Marge kindly took us through the brochures of the local activities and even called around to check for availability. They were always there for advice, however they also let us to our own devices which made us feel very comfortable.
A lot of care and attention has gone into the property. We occupied a room upstairs which had a balcony, fridge, TV and air-con. Breakfast was available to us when we were ready - within reason, this also gave us the chance to get to know our hosts and find out about the area. We had a bathroom for our use only and clean fluffy towels were provided.

Our only minor hitch was the location, the property is set slightly off-piste so a car will be needed to travel to restaurants etc although less than a ten minute drive - parking space was available outside the property. However, we did manage to catch a few photos of deer grazing in the wood area outside which we would have unlikely seen by staying anywhere else, so we were grateful for that. It is also located close to a horse riding ranch which we took full advantage of.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lake Retreat B&B, and we'd like to thank John and Marge for accommodating us in their lovely home and making us feel especially welcome.

Location is central to everything in Lake of the Ozarks. John & Marge make you feel like family. They are warm, welcoming, and full of ideas for what there is to do/explore. Breakfast is great, coffee delicious!! House is very clean and comfortable. Furry family (Shadow and Patches) are so friendly as well. It was hard to leave because I had such a great time at an ideal B&B.

“A true home away from home”

We just returned from a four night stay at this bed and breakfast. The home is beautifully decorated and impeccably clean. The bedrooms were comfortable and offered plenty of space for our family of four. The balcony is inviting and the view is one of the most splendid that we encountered during our visit. This home is centrally located to state parks, hiking, caves, golfing, marinas, dining, shopping, water park and just about any other thing you might care to do or see.

The owners are kind, welcoming and very knowledgeable about the Lake of the Ozarks area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to being able to stay at this lovely bed and breakfast again next summer.

Thank you John and Marge!

The location is about 10 minutes from any activity you'd need or want to go to as a family. We were able to go to the state beach, hike trails, see a cavern, had some awesome soft-serve, ate dinner with an amazing view of the lake, checked out the dam, and more. The owners make you feel like family and go well above just giving you a bed and breakfast.

Fred and Linda were excellent guests and we would certainly welcome them back anytime. We enjoyed our conversations with them and really think that their moving to the Lake is a positive move for ourselves and our neighbors.
Hope that they enjoy the Lake long term.

We stayed at John and Marge's beautiful home for two nights. The home was welcoming and the view from the balcony overlooked the lake. John and Marge were gracious hosts and extended a very warm welcome to their home. We recommend this home as a great place to stay. Thanks again John and Marge for your hospitality.
