“A Gem at the Lake”
Reviewed 18 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Lake Retreat is a beautiful and comfortable home close to the lake with all the amenities necessary. We stayed in the upstairs room our first night with a lovely balcony and a private bathroom. We decided to stay one more night and were able to stay in their walkout basement apartment with a kitchen, family room with a fireplace, a hot tub, and a beautiful patio. Everything was clean and tastefully decorated. John and Marge were excellent hosts providing us with great conversation, useful information about the area to assist with our sight-seeing, and even provided us with a delicious breakfast. Lake Retreat is at the top of our list the next time we visit Lake of the Ozarks.

“Fantastic Family Weekend!”
Reviewed 4 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our stay with John and Marge was very nice. My husband, mother, and niece stayed here for three nights and were very comfortable. Check-in was smooth, and our hosts were incredibly accommodating and inviting. It was wonderful hearing their own travel stories throughout the weekend, and recounting all of the different locations people have visited them from.

We stayed in the comfortable double-bed room upstairs, which had satellite television, a microwave and mini-fridge as nice amenities. My mother and niece stayed in the two single-bed room one door down.

If I had one complaint, it is that part of the appeal of AirBnB is use of a kitchen, and that was not available (and not mentioned) in the listing. That said, use of the outdoor grill was allowed, and we were still able to make two dinners, and store what we needed for the weekend in the mini-fridge upstairs. Marge and John were very helpful, letting us borrow condiments and napkins - things we forgot to pick up ourselves. Breakfast in the morning was provided - John awoke and prepared for us a delicious egg, cheese & ham scramble, french toast, fruit, cereal, coffee, & orange juice.

We had hoped to rent a boat, but did not call local companies ahead to make a reservation - don't make the same mistake! They were sold out at six locations we called through the entire weekend (Fri/Sat/Sun). In lieu of boating, we visited the Lake of the Ozarks State Park public beach for swimming and a picnic Friday and Saturday afternoons. Saturday morning we visited nearby Ha Ha Tonka State Park for some light hiking and sightseeing. I'd recommend both to visitors of Osage Beach!

Thank you to John and Marge for their wonderful hospitality and making us feel like family for the weekend.

This B & B is off a quite area of the lake. There was a beautiful view from the deck of the lake. Our hosts were very easy to talk to and very hospitable. We were given our privacy, but offered the comforts of home and the ability to join them if we wanted. Great little B & B.
