Our favorite things to do are....Enjoy our morning coffee sitting on the patio just looking out at the lake. grabbing a fishing pole catching a few fish, going for a little swim or maybe a boat ride. We also enjoy taking the paddle for a trip around the cove.

Come and enjoy your stay at the lake.

About Jonna Dolinger / John Dolinger

My grandpa & dad built this house in the late 50's. I remodeled in 2013.When I received this house in 1992 I added a new dock. I have been coming to the lake since I was 4 years old and still enjoy it to this day.

Jonna Dolinger / John Dolinger purchased this house in 1992

Why Jonna Dolinger / John Dolinger chose Truman Lake

Its in a nice location by water. The road leading to the house is a little rough, its like finding a piece of paradise.

This sweet little house sits in a cove off of the osage arm. with a private one bay dock.

What makes this house unique

The cove is calm. Just mins. from the main channel. Great spot. Please let owners know if anything changes from your request by phone # (816)217-1996.

Very clean, excellent views, friendly owners, great get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

Came for a two night, three day escape from Kansas City area. Home was very clean, comfortable, and next to the lake. Although there was just the two of us, it sleeps four (two bedrooms) and more if one wants to sleep on the couch or a roll-a-way. The town of Warsaw offers upwards to eight antique stores, of which we visited six. Everyone was friendly. There are a few restaurants, a Walmart, a couple stores and gas stations, Subway, McDonalds, etc., yet this historic town maintains its friendly community and offers local attractions to explore. We met the owners who are remodeling a second home near-by. Grandma's Get-a-way is exactly that. Kitchen is stocked for staying in and serving meals. Linens and towels, pillows, shampoo, record player/radio, paddle boat with life jackets, dishwasher, cable TV, toiletries...everything provided for our stay. We will be back. Almost forgot...there was a crane in the lake, outside this house, around the same time every day. Bring binoculars.

Peaceful Thanksgiving break

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed Grandma's getaway over Thanksgiving. The lake was so quiet and peaceful at that time of the year. We brought our kayak along and lake was wonderful for paddling. It was a bit chilly, but we still enjoyed some hiking and biking around the area. And our kids really enjoyed fishing from the dock and were pleasantly surprised to be catching fish in November. Thanks for sharing your vacation house!

Grandma's Get-A-Way

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is defiantly off the beatin' path which was a plus as to lack of noise from road traffic or busy lake traffic.

The cabin had a warm and cozy interior which immediately made us feel right at home. Couldn't have asked for more in the way of how the kitchen was supplied with everything that we needed to cook. Top notch utensils. Just very happy with our stay.

The dock is down aways from the cabin. Be prepared for some exercise on going up and down the steps.

I will recommend Grandma's for a pleasant stay.

Great get away!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great! Just as listed. It was nice and quiet, just what we wanted. One thing I would recommend, don't arrive when its dark out. We made that mistake and getting there was a bit scary, but that was our fault. Would love to go back in the future!

Very relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival we found out that the photos did not do the property justice. Everything was clean and ready for us. Communication with the owners was fantastic. AS mentioned in an earlier review the steps down to the dock needs work. Couldn't ask for a more peaceful place to spend time for reading or just relaxing. The only negative of the complete stay was Mother Nature. Definitely would book a return visit.

Spent 4 days here and were never bored..even fished in the rain on the cover dock! The house is as everyone says, "well kept". Owners were quick to answer our questions and very accommodating! We hope to return very soon!
