Awesome Family R & R

  • 5 of 5

This location looked great as a mid-point meeting place for my relatives in northern Missouri and myself. Wow...we got so much more than just a meeting place!!!! Everything from the beds...to the linens...to the amenities...to the breathtaking views were all TOP NOTCH!!!! The attention to detail is apparent in every facet of this property. It's beautiful, fun, private and relaxing.This is a fantastic rental properties and far exceeded my expectations. It was the absolutely perfect place for family to unwind and reconnect. Our only problem was trying to figure out WHEN to schedule our next visit that will include MANY more relatives...we can't wait!!!

A Great Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Our group was 16 and this place was the perfect size and offered everything we needed. The pictures are accurate and show what a nice place it is. It was great to be able to enjoy the outdoors & the lake as well as watch NCAA basketball games. We also enjoyed playing ping pong, pool, and basketball. We ate all our meals at this facility but the city of Grove is close if you want to eat out (or get groceries).

The first day of our stay, AT&T accidently cut the DSL line so we were without internet for a while. I'm thinking this was due to construction in the area and doesn't happen very often. The grills are charcoal only (so come prepared) and starting to show their age. Also, the kitchen is fully furnished but we had an issue with ants. We kept our food sealed tight so it wasn't a problem.

The manager (Shawna) was very nice to work with and the instructions/directions were accurate. Like most lake front properties, it is easier to find the first time during daylight. We would highly recommend staying at this facility. We had a great weekend spending time together!

Owner's Response: Thanks to our guests for the review. We are happy they enjoyed their stay! To address the concerns of our guests we are looking into purchasing a gas grill this year. Also, while we do have regularly scheduled pest control, the ants came a little early this year due to an unusually warm spring. We do recommend keeping food and perishables sealed since the house is right on the lake and in a wooded area.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our family grew up vacationing on Grand Lake and we were so excited to find this beautiful home to rent! It was a perfect setting for our family reunion. Everyone had a fantastic time. The house was fabulous, it had everything we needed and provided many activities for young and old. Of course, the water trampoline was a big hit for everyone. Kayaking, ping-pong, volleyball, and just sitting on the lovely patio and enjoying the lake were some of the activities we enjoyed. Special memories were made here, and we were not disappointed in anything. As a family we voted, and we will definitely vacation here again.

Owner's Response: So glad your family enjoyed your time at the lake. We look forward to having you back!

Grand Lake at its best!

  • 5 of 5

This was the 3rd property that we have rented from VRBO and as usual we were not disappointed. This property is beautiful with lake views surrounding it. The large patio is great for a crowd, lots of large flower pots around the perimiter and a firepit in the center. There were 15 of us, 8 adults, 5 teenagers and 2 children. The 4 bedrooms are very nice, we loved the master - private and quiet with its own entrance. The kids enjoyed the huge dorm room which includes 2 baths and a sitting area. There is a basketball court, volleyball net, ping pong, pool table (that was a big hit with the teens). We all enjoyed the private swimming cove with trampoline. The 3 kayaks provided were also fun.

We had access to a boat so the boat dock was a plus. One day we went by boat for a 10 minute ride across the lake to parasail at Sail Grand. (However, if you do not have boat access they will pick you up).

There are many restaurants close by. We went to The Parrot one night, it was close and very good. Reservations are recommended if you have a large crowd.

This property is very clean and well maintained. The pictures are very accurate. We couldn't have asked for a better manager-Shawna was so helpful. This trip was a Christmas gift to our children and grandchildren and she provided brochures for us to put in Christmas cards.

I do suggest that if you are not familiar with Grand Lake or the area it would be best to come during the day as it might be a little difficult finding in the dark.

We are planning a return trip for next year!

Truly Beautiful Property!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and already have another week planned later this summer. This is really a fantastic property. The water view is amazing and you can see the water from just about everywhere in the house (even the kitchen). The owners and property manager take great care in making sure that everything is just right and seem to have thought of everything. The house has been kept up extremely well, is very nicely furnished, and has updated fixtures throughout. The kitchen has everything we needed during our stay. The guest house appears quite new and is very well furnished..even the garage is finished and climate-controlled for ping pong. There was plenty of room for food with the extra full-size appliances in the garage.

We had a group of 15 and there was plenty of room for everyone to do their own thing. Our trip started off with several days of rain but the house amenities saved us. Once the Sun came out, there was plenty to do outside and on the water. Although this property sits on the main channel, we had plenty of nice calm water each day to paddleboard and kayak easily. Having Honey Creek cove right off the boat dock provided a super easy and close place to ski, tube, wakeboard...you name it. The newly added water trampoline was a huge hit with the kids. They all took turns jumping and used it as a central gathering place down in the swim cove. Some of the kids were able to get in some fishing off the dock and caught some really nice catfish.

My favorite thing to do was to sit out on the patio each morning and enjoy the view and nature with my coffee. We had several fires in the fire pit outside and roasted marshmallows a couple of times. They even had fire starters available which proved to be quite handy since all the kindling and wood was nice and wet from the rain.

We can't wait for our next trip!

Family weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our stay included three nights and four days. The home was beautiful and very comfortable. Location at the lake was amazing. The home is equipped with plenty of inside and outside recreation. Facilities were all in working condition, and our stay was very enjoyable. Look forward to returning.
