Whether you’re here to play in the sun, shop, fish, hunt, visit wineries or just get away from it all - this is where you’ll want to unwind at the end of the day.

The view is awesome since the cottage is located just inside a smaller cove for calm water fishing with a great lake view of the very large Lick Branch Cove. There is ample parking for as many as four cars right next to the lake house.

The large deck comfortably seats around 20 people with two tables and plenty of extra chairs. There are also 2 outdoor speakers on the deck and a charcoal Weber grill for a memorable BBQ overlooking the lake.

Near the water, you'll find a fire pit with Adirondack chairs on the water's edge for a late night conversation with s'mores!

Our paddle boat is located on the dock and our 2 kayaks are along the side of the house.

PARKING: If you are familiar with the Lake of the Ozarks area, you know how hilly it is. This lake house rental allows for very easy access from your car. The front door is just a couple feet away and there is parking area available for 4 cars! In addition to that, getting to the lake or dock from the cottage is also no problem. Please note we don't recommend bringing motorcycles as we have a gravel road leading to the cottage.

DOCK: There are only a few steps down to the lake where there is a floating single well covered dock. The dock has a swim platform with a ladder and will fit a 30 foot boat.


We are about 5-10 minutes from a convenience store, boat rental and some nice, casual local restaurants.

We are about 20 minutes from Osage Beach where you’ll find grocery stores, the outlet mall, miniature golf and many great restaurants.

About Dave & Peggy

Our love for the Lake of the Ozarks began in 1980 when we vacationed here for our Honeymoon! We (Peggy and Dave) then began vacationing here every summer with our family in 1989 and eventually bought our first home here in 1994.

After 10 incredible summers at this house, we decided to move from Oswego, IL (Chicago suburb) to Rocky Mount, MO full-time. We loved our original house too much to let it go and decided to keep the house as a rental property for other families to enjoy like we did!

We enjoyed renting our lake house so much, we decided to look for another vacation home to purchase. After a year of searching, we found Echo Valley in 2006 and have been renting it ever since.

As full-timers here, we are very familiar with the area and can help you with any questions you may have during your stay - from where to put your boat in, which restaurants to check out or where the closest convenience store is - we've got you covered! We're also just a short boat ride or drive away if you should need anything.

As of January 2014, Dave and Peggy's daughter, Heidi, and son-in-law, Eric, have become co-owners with us. They reside in St. Louis and have stayed in this lake house rental a few times every year with a group of their friends. They can tell you from experience what a great rental house it is with groups- large or small.

Dave & Peggy purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Dave & Peggy chose Rocky Mount

This cottage is situated very nicely inside a cove within a larger cove so if privacy is important to you, it doesn't get much better than this at The Lake of the Ozarks.

What makes this cabin unique

This cottage has 85' of lake frontage and close to many popular restaurant / bars on the lake. The view of the lake from the deck is remarkable. We offer many ways to enjoy the lake including a fire pit on the water's edge and free water toys (1 paddle boat and 2 kayaks are included in the stay).

Wonderful house on the lake in a quiet cove

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend. Came to celebrate our sons 30th bday. Plenty of room. Comfy beds. Deck was fantastic and makes the house. Enjoyed use of the kayaks, rented a jet ski from Iguana which is really close. Can’t wait to come back.

We LIVED on that gorgeous deck!!

  • 5 of 5

Three sisters and two husbands (poor guys) visited this rental, and it was a great week. the deck is gorgeous. It is huge. It has breathtaking views of the lake. During daylight hours, there is always some sun AND some shade on that deck...for the sunbathing lovers and those like us who like to sit in the shade. We used only 3 of the 4 bedrooms, and both bathrooms are spacious. The kitchen is stocked well, and the decor was really nice The lake offered a bit of both worlds as well...times of extreme quiet and serenity, with enough boating, skiing, kayaking and jet skiing to keep things interesting. Hated leaving mama duck with her tiny brood of 8 ducklings, a goose with her goslings, blue herons, an eagle and even "Bambi". Returned fully rested, and full of good memories.

Fantastic home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I shared this, clean, well maintained, stylishly decorated home with great lake views for a week. Very comfortable beds and bedrooms that accomodated the whole group. Living room had great couches, plenty of seating, great fireplace! We like to cook together and found the kitchen to be well stocked with plenty of room to work and ample seating at the table at meal time. The deck is huge and would have been another great place to eat meals if only the weather was a little better. We enjoyed the firepit at lake level and the peacefulness of a clear night. The area has so much to offer: hiking, shopping, restaurants, boating, fishing. Make sure to check the local paper for other offerings like bingo and fish frys. You can be very busy or just relax and take it easy. Owners are very friendly and courteous. I highly recommend this home away from home and hope to come back soon.

Owner's Response: Karen, Thank you so much for your kind words about our home. We recently redecorated and put all new beds in every bedroom! It sounds like you were able to enjoy all the great amenities the home has to offer like the fireplace and fire pit (you had some cold nights!). We hope to see you again! Thanks, Heidi

The property is beautiful. Easy to find. It was nice and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

Once I learned my way around it was easy to navigate between there and activities. The house was quiet we enjoyed our stay. The water in the downstairs shower did not get hot but other than that it was a spectacular weekend.
