About Don & Jennifer Hubbs
As a boy, my grandfather took me along as he fished on the Osage River (now part of Truman Lake). My other grandparents owned a farm that is now below the lake- many relatives still call Benton County home. My brothers and I water skied on Truman Lake before any marinas were opened. Eight years ago, my wife and I purchased a boat so that we could spend time as a family on the lake. We enjoy waterskiing, tubing and playing in the water. We live in Kansas City but we keep a boat at Long Shoal Marina and spend many weekends in the spring, summer and fall out on the lake. We purchased this house in 2014 and completely remodeled the interior. My wife, Jennifer, a HGTV addict, put her heart and soul into modernizing this home. Personally, I love the old sleeping porch. It has windows all around, two trundled beds and is insulated with both electric heating and air conditioning. Be prepared to watch the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. We have experienced sunsets from Key West to Hawaii-but the view from our deck is spectacular. My wife and I both own our own businesses but our favorite hobby is being out on the lake.

Why Don & Jennifer Hubbs chose Leesville
This is the perfect place to escape the noise and crowds in the city. The sunsets and stars are awesome. You will almost always see a bald eagle or two year round from the deck.
What makes this House unique
Close to several of the lake marinas, yet we are on a quiet part of the lake. Best view within 500 miles of Kansas City and St. Louis.

Summer Vacation at the Lake
Our family had a wonderful time at your lake home. Well equipped kitchen. Soft beds and towels. Porch was great for kiddos legos etc and having sleepovers w nana and papa. Plus the great view of the lake. I'd love to sit on the deck in the fall. We will be back!
Great Get Away
We had a great stay. It's an easy drive from KC. The house is beautiful & the swimming pond was a nice surprise.
Lovely Place to Stay!!
We loved our stay! The view of the lake is beautiful and we felt very at home in the coziness of the cabin. Very nicely decorated, great beds and loved the soft towels! Having a washer and dryer was nice for washing our swim suits and beach towels at the end of the day. It was a very warm weekend outside but stayed plenty cool when we came in and was impressed with the air temp on the sleeping porch! We saw deer every day and even had an eagle fly over one morning! Had the BEST fishing experience EVER!!! Will definitely try to stay here again!
We thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay. The home is immaculate with beautiful touches--many large windows, a magazine-quality master bath, a skylight, and excellent linens and mattresses. We divided our time between lounging on the sunny deck, reading in the living room, and watching a little late-night TV on the sleeping porch. The kitchen was pleasant to cook in, with windows that view full birdfeeders with constant visitors. The view from the house must be one of the best on Truman Lake. We enjoyed bird- and boat-watching with the binoculars on the mantle. We walked around the neighborhood, down to the boat launch and around the bay. At the state park, we walked trails and explored the beach.
It really warms our heart when our guests let us know that they appreciate out lake home. Thank you for your kind review.
Loved the smiles on my family's face when we entered the home!
Don and Jennifer,
We had an amazing time at your home this last weekend! First of all your home is beautiful and so neatly decorated! The home was very clean. It was so nice to be able to cook family meals together. I did ask my family what their favorite part of the lake home was and most of them said the SUNSET! Breathtaking to say the least, the weather was perfect that we spent a lot of time on the deck. My favorite part was having all my family in one place to enjoy the weekend! I did catch my son on the hammock taking a little rest, my husband spent a lot of time just looking at the water. I would highly recommending your home to anyone and we will plan on booking this home again in the near future!
Thank you again from the Kuszak's!
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your wonderful review.
Weekend stay in a beautiful home - we HIGHLY recommend!
Loved this home. Did not want to leave when our 3 nights were up. Quiet, off the beaten path, right in the middle of anything you might need. The view is spectacular. The hammock was a very quiet and relaxing spot to unwind. We even tried the sleeping porch - highly recommend. Sunset and stargazing were also spectacular. Both queen beds were very comfortable and the master bath is beautiful. We saw many turkeys, a turtle, 1 or 2 (maybe the same?) bald eagle, a few deer and on our last morning a fox. We recommend this home to anyone heading to the area, you won't be disappointed.
Warsaw downtown is booming with antique shops and restaurants. There's also a grocery store and even a Walmart in town.
The nearest town is Tightwad, Missouri…population 63.... For years, UMB bank had a bank in Tightwad (somewhat out in the middle of no where). Legend has it that UMB CEO, Crosby Kemper, bought the bank just so that he could have checks with a home address of Tightwad. Donna's Dinner, about 3 miles North of Tightwad, serves the best homemade pie in the county. Long Shoal Marina, about 10 minutes away, has a nice dockside dining deck.
