People travel to the lake area for a variety of reasons over the holiday season. It's not just a summer spot! Thanksgiving & Christmas bring family members back to town for visits, there's lots of time in between those holidays to attend events and go shopping, and then of course, there's New Year's Eve to celebrate. You will need a place to stay while all of those things are going on!
Our Amazing Rental Houses
Last Summer, the Lake of the Ozarks best Cajun restaurant added vacation rental houses to the list of fantastic things that we have to offer our awesome customers. There are two to choose from. Both are located within walking distance of Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina, conveniently located in Osage Beach, off of Hwy. KK and Three Seasons Road, on the 21 MM.
You will find all the comforts of home, including a beautifully appointed kitchen, a washer and dryer, and all the necessary appliances needed for everyday living in each. If the weather cooperates, you even have gorgeous decks to enjoy the amazing lake view from.
The Glass House
This vacation rental features 1,500 square feet of living space, lakefront access, and breathtaking panoramic lake views. It sleeps up to 8 guests comfortably with 2 queen size beds, 1 full bed, and a sleeper sofa in the living room. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a full kitchen, and a 44-foot deck.
The Red House
This house offers a more space at 3,400 square feet. It has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, lakefront access, a full kitchen, 2 incredible decks, and the same breathtaking panoramic lake view.
Holiday Fun in the Lake Area
With everything going on in the next couple of months at the lake, you will definitely want to spend some time here. Go ahead and enjoy one of our two vacation rental houses at the Lake of the Ozarks so that you don't have to stay at your relative's house, and so you can attend a few of these awesome events.
