About the property

Come enjoy our piece of paradise!

This house sits in a very calm cove on the 87 mile marker on the Ozarks side perfect for tubbing little ones, riding wet bikes or just swimming or maybe a little fishing from our private dock. Your welcome to bring your boat, the boat launch is in Warsaw.

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 John Dolinger

My husbands grandpa & dad built this house in the late 50's. John remodeled in 2013.When he received this house in 1992 I added a new dock.

John Dolinger purchased this house in 1992

Why 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.

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

Grandma's Get-A Way is a great little place to stay. We were looking for a small place to stay a few nights while in the area for some bike riding. It was nice to find a place on the water. Very well keep. We enjoyed fishing off the dock and relaxing on the patio. It was nice to have a grill to use for an outside meal. The well stocked bathroom made my husband happy when I forgot to put the dental floss in my make-up bag. One thing that would helped in the kitchen was some paper towels and/or napkins but we made do. Thanks to John & Joanna for a nice little place.

If you are looking for a place to unwind this is the place to be. We enjoyed the heck out of it. Accommodations were great, a real relaxing feel. Breakfast and supper outside overlooking the cove. Lunch in our boat on the river. We will be back.

Completely relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay again! Fishing was great and the addition of the fish cleaning station made my husband very happy. Enjoyed visiting with John a few times while he was working on another place, (which we would like to try out this summer). He is very friendly and genuinely cared if we were having a good time. The lake is just so peaceful and the few people that are in that area are very friendly.

The owners Jonna and John couldn't be more hospitable. They are so great and they have a very nice house on the Osage river. Great times!

Nice Little House with a Water View

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little place to stay if you want something right on the water. Clean house with everything we needed for our stay over Easter weekend. The dock was great for fishing off of without having to drive anywhere, and you get your exercise going up and down those steps. It was way too windy for us to use the paddle boat, but we appreciated it was included and would have loved to try it. Having a grill available was a plus also, we grilled two meals while we were there. My favorite part was definitely being able to sit on the porch area and look at the water. My 12 yr old son got a real kick out of the "old" record player too! The house was a good size for our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 boys ages 16 & 12). The only thing that might be a little odd for some people is that everyone has to walk through the master bedroom to get to the bathroom, and also there is no door between the living room and master bedroom. Wasn't really a problem for us, but I can see where that could be a little awkward for some. Also be aware of super steep roadway the last few yards down to the house, and I wouldn't recommend bringing more than one vehicle, as there is limited space to park. Not a big deal, but probably worth mentioning. Owners were excellent to work with every step of the process. We really appreciated them letting my husband come by a little early when he ran into a situation we didn't expect where he would have been stranded for a couple hours otherwise until we arrived to meet him. I would recommend this place. Thank you for everything! (Side note: The Lost Valley Hatchery is very close by also, we didn't make it there this trip, but we've been before and it is worth a visit with an aquarium, exhibit, and free fishing for kids).
