Welcome back friends! We hope your summer has been just amazing! Here at the Lake of the Ozarks, where our bed and breakfast is located, we’ve had an amazing season meeting guests from all over, making new friends, and just enjoying all that this area has to offer. Guests often ask our favorite things to do during their stay so we thought we’d share our top 5 reasons you should come vacation to the wonderful Lake of the Ozarks.
5 Favorites About the Lake of the Ozarks
#1 – Natural Beauty– The stunning beauty of this area is hands down the number one reason you need to come spend some time here. A favorite natural area is the Ha Ha Tonka state park, which offers many scenic overlooks. You’ll find several short or medium length trails which hi-light the beautiful region. Speaking of views, many of the fine dining restaurants such as Baxter’s Lakeside Grill, also offer lakeside views. In fact, they just received an award for the most scenic restaurant view in the entire state of Missouri! The Oar House at Miller’s Landing Mariana has wonderful outside patio dining—sunsets here are amazing! With fall approaching, we also cannot “leaf” out the fall colors that will be bursting all around! We can direct you to some great scenic leaf peeping drives.
#2 – Wineries– Just seven minutes away from our B&B is the Seven Springs Winery, which offers water features and stunning views of the valley. Another great winery nearby is the Shawnee Bluff Winery that also shows off panoramic views and wonderful local wine. If you are up for a bit of a scenic drive into the Ozark countryside, we suggest checking out the Dale Hollow Winery in nearby Stover.
#3 – Golf– For enthusiasts who like to get out on the green, the Ozarks area is a dream place to golf! Bear Creek Golf Course is just down the street from us. It offers golfers a course that is not only great for beginners and seasoned golfers alike, but also unmatched scenery with gentle rolling hills. When you are ready to tee off, ask Sue to book a golf-a-round package for you at any of the 13 courses around the Lake.
#4 – Shopping – Whether you are in the mood to window shop or are on the lookout for a special gift, we are fortunate to have several great boutiques and shops in the area. Country Crossroads is a special local shop where Selynn will help you find a gift or piece of exquisite jewelry. Evergreen is a store with lots of holiday décor and even has a Men’s Lounge in the back corner of the store! The Landing on Main Street also has many shops (don’t miss the Candy Kitchen!) and is a place where you can stroll along the boardwalk. Finally, just 8 minutes from our inn are the outlet stores at the Osage Beach Market Place, where you can find some great sales!
#5 – Relaxation– The Lake is the best place to come when you need to escape the busyness of life and take some time for yourself. We’ve been voted as the Best Recreational Lake in the nation and no matter what season you come, you can recharge your batteries, re-connect with loved ones and simply enjoy all that this area has to offer at YOUR pace.
