Space 1,000 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5 max

We are excited to share Powell Lakehouse, rentable all four seasons with you! The off-season (September thru May) is the best kept secret at the Lake with cool evenings, sunny days, gorgeous views and an array of wildlife sightings. Let us know if you are celebrating a honeymoon, anniversary or a birthday. We have something special for these special occasions.

What makes Powell Lakehouse different than our competitors? We take pride in the little details. Many amenities, newly remodeled, and all new landscaping. This year we finished the lakeside fire pit area for enjoyable views and evening campfires. The master bed has new 500 thread count , Egyptian cotton sheets, and a new comforter. We supply the items others do not such as beach towels, spices in the kitchen, frosty beer glasses in the freezer, paper towels, toilet paper, laundry soap, bug spray, etc. Powell Lakehouse is the perfect vacation home for the romantic getaway, couples retreat, girls weekend, or small group.

We are currently undergoing many new changes to the deck and lakeside this summer and fall. On May 27, 2017, we were struck by an F-1 tornado that took down many old 100-150 year old trees in our neighborhood. No one was hurt. The house is fine. But the damage from the storm has forced us to make improvements during our repairs. The front deck is new plus expanded! John is building a patio cover and we are adding on lower decks soon. We are adding a 2 person hot tub to the deck (to be ready by fall 2017) and new patio furniture. The seawall will be repaired (to be completed by winter 2017) and hopefully an improved or new dock (by Summer 2018) is coming soon. Please pardon our progress. This is our home and we are always enhancing or adding extras as we repair damage from the tornado.

The lake view and location is amazing! This vacation rental home is completely remodeled inside and out and located on the 8mm in Buck Creek Cove, Sunrise Beach, MO. This cozy lake cottage has 2 BR (Queen bed in the Master, and a Bunk bed with a Trundle bed, sleeping 3 in the 2nd BR). Fully furnished with linens and towels provided. Comfortable hotel-quality robes provided for the Master Bedroom Guests. Kitchen is well equipped for any cook and there is a dishwasher, microwave, coffeemaker, crock pot, toaster oven, ice maker, and much more! Washer and Dryer are located in the one bathroom. Indoor and outdoor showers on site. Located right on the waterfront with a pier and swim dock in deep water cove. Deep water cove (25+ feet under the dock) which makes for great fishing! Swim, float, fish, and kayak or just enjoy the lake view. Cable TV in 2 rooms and free wi-fi on site. There is even an outdoor fire pit area for roasting marshmallows as well as an indoor wood-burning fireplace. Weekend (2 night minimum or 3 night minimum during Peak season) and weekly rentals available all year round. Close to HWY 5, near the toll bridge, for easy access to the other side of the lake. Quiet neighborhood. No parties. Paved road the entire way from Hwy 5 to house where you have off street parking on a new concrete driveway. No pets allowed. Maximum is 5 people! Enjoy a perfect getaway, beautiful sunsets, and relax any time of the year. Plan your next vacation at the Powell Lakehouse.

About John & Kim Powell

We met in 1984 on a cruise to the Mexican Riviera as teenagers, and 30 years later we are reunited. We both love the water and the ocean. John is a retired deputy and Kim is an art teacher. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do. It is our fairy tale ending and you are a part of our story.

John & Kim Powell purchased this house in 2012

Why John & Kim Powell chose Lake of the Ozarks

Because of the location on the property, you are right next to the water. There are great views and loads of windows in this quaint lake cottage. Kim was a waitress at Tan Tar A, Chief's, and Shooter's 21 when she was in college. John has always lived in Orange County CA near the ocean all his life. Living near the water is a must for this couple. Enjoy your stay!

What makes this house unique

Everything is new at this Lakehouse! The previous owner gutted the place and started fresh inside and out. We just added a garage and guesthouse (where we stay) on the property this summer. New landscaping throughout the whole property. Privacy fence and more outdoor sitting areas are coming this Spring. Please excuse our progress!

Guestbook comments from the owner

As we sit here on the deck on our final morning at the Powell Lakehouse, we sum up our week here with one word: AWESOME! Thank you both so much for opening your beautiful home to folks like us. We've enjoyed restaurants nearby and also in Osage Beach. We've shopped the outlet mall and also the old strip. We chartered a catfish boat with a super guide! That was a blast and definitely not something I would ever have thought would be fun. We didn't have much luck with crappies until last night. I was determined to catch some before we leave. Sure enough, I caught THREE within about 15 minutes! It was about 8:30pm. Seems they are more active at night. The weather has been perfect! Upper 70s and lower 80s all week. With the tree shade, we really have not needed to turn on the AC. Your home is so lovely. Beautifully decorated and all the extras make it so adorable. We do hope to be back next year! Thanks again and best wishes to you both!

Owner's Response: Thanks for coming to Powell Lakehouse! We appreciate the feedback. I'm glad you were able to enjoy the meteor shower over the weekend. Since the tornado took out the trees in front, we have a great view of the skies too. We hope you return soon. Enjoy your retirement! -Kim & John

Great relaxing vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family of 4. You can't beat the view of the lake as you sit on the deck. The kids LOVED playing on the paddleboards and jumping right off the dock. Every day and night the deer were plentiful along our drive to and from the house. We fished right off the dock and had a very relaxing time. The house is exceptionally clean and well cared for. I would recommend this house to anyone who wants to be right on the water with a great view. Thanks to the Powells for an amazing week!

Lots of bang for your buck with this little gem!

  • 5 of 5

The house was so clean and well decorated. Attention to the details was obvious. The amount of improvements and work that the owners have done since the tornado is nothing short of amazing. The location was perfect and we all had a ton of fun floating, paddle boarding and fishing off the dock. The neighbor even let the kids jump off of his diving boards. Kim was so kind to let us use their hot tub since ours wasn't working. We will definitely be recommending this place to our friends.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your week at our home. We look forward to your return. Thanks again for being flexible with your dates right after the tornado hit. Looks like our new concrete dock will arrive in early September 2017! We should have the hot tub hooked up in October.

We had a great time at Powell Lakehouse. Kim and John were great and very helpful and we enjoyed being right on the lake!! We will definitely be returning.

Owner's Response: We enjoyed having your family stay at Powell Lakehouse. The middle of the week in June is such a peaceful time at the Lake. The water was so smooth and you had the whole cove to yourself. It was nice to see everyone kayaking and paddle boarding. We will recommend Point Oasis for future boat rentals since they were so good to you. Thank you for buying us a kayak paddle which we needed! We look forward to showing off our new deck and dock when you return. ~John and Kim
