Inn History

Thanks for visiting the Web site of The Inn at Harbour Ridge, a Lake of the Ozarks bed and breakfast offering luxury accommodations in Missouri!

Aren’t the pictures great? Here’s the Inn’s story.  It’s a custom built ‘built as’ B & B and will celebrate 20 years of existence in February of 2020. Lots of TLC and special touches have gone into it over the last 20 years, making it perfect for romantic getaways in Missouri. The Inn opened for business on Valentines Weekend of  2000 with a novice innkeeper who can proudly say today,  “I’m living my dream – even after 20 years!”

The Inn offers just four very special themed guestrooms with a whole lot of “whimsy” – everywhere! Since the Inn is a ‘built as’ B & B, it offers a contemporary setting, with private baths, flatscreen TVs, wi-fi through out and a dock down on the cove!  The “character” of this property comes from the silly little touches and laid back luxury the Lake is famous for.

No one will call us stuffy!

The Inn offers two common areas inside. On our lower level we have a great room, which we call the 19th Hole, with a big covered patio. Wait till you kick back at the bar in the 19th Hole, enjoy the gas-burning fireplace, choose a movie (your choice – chick flicks or action movies, classics or new releases) and even munch on the popcorn we provide. There’s also a bar fridge that I try to keep stocked with soda, tea, and ice. Mr. Culligan’s water cooler is also downstairs. Watch out when you start checking your swing and playing pro golfer, OK?  Gringo’s Bar is out on the back deck and the gazebo is just down the sidewalk. 

We serve a delicious breakfast feast each morning. I love to cook, so you’ll probably smell muffins or mini loaves in the oven. It’ll try my best to WOW you with my cheddar omelet or baked cinnamon French toast and peach-smothered sausages. Sometimes the fruit has a splash of Chambord or Port or who knows what I might throw on there!!! We enjoy seeing your grins as we offer up a Moonshine Mimosa, Bad Apple, or Blushing Bride juice cocktail!  Almost forget – I’ll deliver an early-morning coffee/tea tray to you door, so you can enjoy an early cup in bed or on your private deck. Please let me know when you make your reservation if you have any food allergies or dietary restrictions for breakfast. Breakfast IS half my name and I aim to please!

We live just outside the city limits of Osage Beach on a paved road, and we overlook a quiet cove on the Lake, just back from the 23-mile marker. When we say we offer Lake lodging in Missouri, we aren’t kidding! Our community dock and swim platform is just down the hill. . . pack those little water wings! We’re close to several golf courses and offer our guests discounted prices at most of the golf courses around the Lake. Osage Beach Shopaholics, we’re just 8 minutes from 65 stores at the Osage Beach Outlet Market Place, where every day is a sale day.

Reuben Ridge, our black cocker spaniel with a ‘tude’, is in residence and loves to snooze in our personal living quarters, unless invited out to play. In the warmer months, the squirrels take a bath in our backyard fountain, and sometimes Mama Deer brings the twins up to the backyard and my garden. We get a great view of Mother Nature and the birds of the Lake during breakfast in our solarium breakfast room beside the top deck and herb pots.

We’re proud to be members of the Bed and Breakfast Association of Missouri, which means we’ve been inspected and approved to open our home to you as guests. We’re also members of the Professional Association of Innkeepers, Association of Independent Hospitality Professionals, and the Lake of the Ozaks Convention and Visitors Bureau. Sue serves on the Tri-County Lodging Association, representing the small lodging properties of Camden County, as well as serving as Board Chairman. 

We’re at the top of the list for romantic getaways and honeymoons and the best of both worlds for guys (golf, fishing) and ladies (sunning and shopping). If you have a special request, just let us know and we’ll handle the details for you. I’ll run out and buy the flowers or chill your favorite champagne, just say the word. Our value and level of service will WOW you!
