“Great place for visiting the area and relaxing”
Reviewed February 25, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I was looking for something different for a long weekend. This was perfect for us. The location is in an area pretty much central to quite a bit to do around the area. One direction was a state park with castle ruins and wineries. The opposite direction was 'the strip' and the Bagnell Dam, with a lodge/museum, restaurants and another winery (all overlooking the water,) a large outlet mall, etc. Even another direction, historic swinging bridges (and another state park with beaches. Even in the off season, we kept busy every day then got back in the early evening to our comfortable accommodations to relax in the hot tub, then streaming some Netflix (and able to keep snacks in the kitchen .. and from the provided light breakfast items, fruit, etc.) Oh, and you have to visit the local distillery just down the road from this great place to stay. Even though we were there in the off season, the weather was great (mid 70's and sunny for several days.) Nice to be able to enjoy the outdoors, hiking some trails, etc.

Thanks Marge and John for all your recommendations and the hospitality.

Stay here .. you will enjoy yourself.

“Amazing, relaxing stay!”
Reviewed February 11, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This place was AMAZING! John and his wife Marge were the best hosts. The downstairs was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. The kitchenette area was even filled with breakfast items. John and Marge gave us great recommendations for restaurants and were lovely host. My friend and I got to relax all weekend, tucked away in the downstairs apartment. We only saw John and Marge when we went upstairs. We were even given a homemade pumpkin pie from Marge. I would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a good getaway. The hottub was amazing as well.

“Relaxing, friendly place to stay”
Reviewed November 12, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

John and Marge were excellent hosts. We had a very relaxing stay and the house is in a great location, close to several area attractions but in a quiet residential neighborhood. It was clean and well equipped, the bed was comfortable and the hot tub was great. We would definitely stay there again.

“Cozy, clean, and nice!”
Reviewed October 8, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The intent of our weekend getaway was to relax and forget about the rest of life for a while.
We did just that! Managed to catch up on a few winks, a little small talk, a nice hot tub to
soothe our aches and some wine to top it off all made for a very enjoyable time indeed! The
owners were friendly and the host cat, Shadow, was also quite welcoming. Fresh fruit, juice,
milk, an assortment of cereals, bagels, and muffins were provided as our breakfasts but a
two burner hot plate and microwave were available for use in the kitchenette as well. A very
comfortable sitting area with a TV with DIRECT TV, dvd/vhs player, a dining table to eat or play games, a place to grill and enjoy the quiet of the trees around us, and home again
refreshed.

“A Restful Week”

We had a very restful stay in this comfortable basement apartment. It was especially nice to have our own kitchen, and what a surprise to see it stocked with breakfast items. We appreciated the flexibility of the hosts to accommodate our low fat diet. They were also very helpful in telling us about good place to eat and to visit.

“Nice little getaway!”
Reviewed August 25, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed here in August for a getaway to the Lake of the Ozarks area. We didn't want to stay in a hotel or a condo, so this worked really well for us! The Private suite is very nice, and if you are looking for a Bed and Breakfast, we'd definitely recommend it. John and Marge are great hosts, very friendly and have lots of good recommendations for the area. Having Dish and Netflix was nice after we got out of the Hot Tub and after hiking all day. The kitchennette and grill provided ample opportunity for us to cook steaks.

“Great vacation home at the Ozarks with friendly owners”
Reviewed August 11, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My family stayed in this rental in early August 2015. My wife and I brought our two year old daughter along with us, and they were very sweet to her even though she did a substantial amount of redecorating at their home. The rental is super clean and feels like a home away from home. The back deck has a grill and dining table. The hot tub is well cared for, super clean, and private. The photos on the website for this rental are nice, but the rental is even nicer when you see it in person. The rental is not directly on the water, but for the price, it's one of the best homes we've ever rented.

John and Marge were incredibly accommodating and very nice. All the other reviews about them are absolutely true. They gave us dinner and entertainment recommendations on a number of occasions which were all spot on.

I highly recommend this rental to couples looking for a private home to rent. Even though we traveled with a young child, this rental has one room and one bed so it's best for couples. Our daughter slept on the floor, and it was great, but if you have more than one small child, it's probably too small.
