Area Information
Located at the 26 mile marker of the Osage Arm of the Lake of the Ozarks, the Whispering Woods vacation home provides a spectacular view across the main channel while still providing cove protection making use of the huge 3 well dock with swim platform. By land the home is located in Sunrise Beach off of Lake Rd. F-12S. Directly across the main channel is the location of Tan-Tar-A's fireworks display. Sit on any one of the home's 3 lakefront decks and enjoy Memorial Day, Labor Day, or 4th of July fireworks.

The Lake of the Ozarks was built on May 30, 1931, and was the largest man-made lake in the world at that time. The lake originated from the construction of Bagnell Dam, which began on August 6, 1929 (four months before the stock market crash of 1929). Fortunately for Missourians, the Bagnell Dam project would bring growth and expansion to the area during the midst of the Great Depression. When completed, Bagnell Dam would create a lake that covers 57,000 acres and features 1375 miles of cove-indentured shoreline. Today, this shoreline is dotted with beautiful homes, hotels, resorts, restaurants, and shops.

Many of the Lake's visitors are watersports fans. To accommodate these visitors, numerous marinas offer boats for rent. Boating fanatics can find every type of watercraft imaginable at the Lake including houseboats, ski boats, sail boats, bass boats, speed boats and wave runners. The Lake features several quiet coves that are great for a cool afternoon swim, sunbathing, or a few quick casts for bass, crappie, or catfish. If more action is on your mind, the main channel is a great place for skiing, tubing, or wakeboarding.

When it's time to head back to shore, the fun doesn't have to end! The communities surrounding the lake feature a variety of activities to suit every interest. Whether you're a kid or a kid-at-heart, you'll revel in the variety of amusement parks, miniature golf courses, go-carts and horseback riding trails that the region has to offer. Also check out the helicopter and sea plane rides, local caves, shops, and festivals, or take a tour of Bagnell Dam.

The Lake area is quickly becoming the Midwest's primary golf destination, and features over 180 holes of championship golf. From beginner to pro, the variety of courses at the Lake will challenge every player, amidst the serene backdrop of the Ozark Mountains.

Vacationers love a good meal, and the Lake area will not disappoint! Whether you're looking for a casual lunch or a candlelit bluff top meal, the Lake has the dining experience for you. While the Ozarks specialize in BBQ and fish, you can easily find cultural fare, including Italian, Mexican, Chinese, and Japanese. For a quick meal, grab a burger, a catfish basket, or a BBQ pork sandwich. Top it all off with some homemade fudge or a banana split at one of the many ice cream parlors. Dinner can range from a perfectly grilled steak to lobster to pasta.

Keep in mind that the Lake of the Ozarks isn't just a summer destination. The Ozark Mountains are famous for their fall foliage, which is a beautiful sight from the calmer waters of the Lake. The milder autumn temperatures are excellent for a round of golf, or a hike through the woods.

Winter features soft snowfall, cozy evenings by the fire, and candlelit dinners with a view of the still Lake waters. The area's numerous shops, including the 110-store Factory Outlet Village, are the perfect source for all your holiday shopping needs. Relax from a busy day of shopping with a massage or cuddle up by the fire with a good book.

Great Getaway

Our family had a wonderful time this Thanksgiving week. We enjoyed the waterfront view from the latge windows. Big open dining/living areas (on both levels). The two kitchens helped alot when cooking a large meal as we did. It was also close to many parks and trails which we like to do. We enjoyed lounging on the boat dock, since swimming was quite cold at this time of year. The kids went in the water anyway. It was fun watch they getting out as fast as they got in the water. There cleaning crew evidently did a fast job, they missed a few areas and some of the pots/pans needed scrubbed. Not saying that they did poorly, were just saying that they need to do a more thorough job. It was great, the atmosphere, the rooms, game rooms, hot tub, and fire pit. They all made it a wonderful time. Thanks

Awsome Lake House In the Woods

The house is a really great place to get together with a large group of friends or family. It has everything that you need to have a wonderful time. I would definitely rent again for a large get together. The only thing that I can say negative about the house is it is like 30 min. From osage beach, so there wasn't Abby stores or walmart close by. That made it a hassle. Of you are not coming in town for those purposes the house is a great outdoor escape.

My Parents 50th Anniversary

Our entire family of 17 very much enjoyed out two night stay at this home in the Ozarks celebrating our parents 50th anniversary. The house was plenty big enough and had everything we needed/wanted. Jim was very patient with my Dad in having special requests. He answered calls and helped him getting in and help with the satelite. He was available and super. There were a few minor maintenance issues - lights not working etc that were not life ordeath, but a minor nuisance - just made it hard to see to wash dishes. One sliding door had no lock, but we secured ourselves inside with a broom handle. The neighborhood was quiet and we enjoyed walks in the beautiful setting of this house. We discussed wanting to return and repeat our very pleasant experience. This was our first vacation home rental and hope it's not our last!! It very easily would house the 22 people that the description said. If you're thinking about booking this house, I would do so with confidence!

Great!

We rented the two homes for a family reunion of 25 people. It was a great location and great homes for big groups. The outdoor patios, bar, and docks make for perfect places to relax and have fun. Definitely would stay here again!

Girls Weekend

This place was perfect for us, 21 girls from St. Louis. Had a blast, more than enough room, clean, plenty of linens, untensils, etc. and right on the water. Wish we would have had a boat to use. Parking is a little tough for more than 5 or 6 cars. Otherwise, it was great. Can't wait to do it again in the fall.
