Description from owner

Poco Risco invites you and your family to experience a vacation getaway that offers something for everyone. Solitude. Natural Beauty. Breathing Space. Togetherness.

The rental log homes at Poco Risco combine modern conveniences with the enduring beauty of natural wood, creating a personal environment for you and your family that will comfort, soothe and warm the soul.

Poco Risco log homes are nestled between the shores of the Little Niangua channel and the edge of nature's raw beauty. Discover a rich forest of native flowers, prairie plants, and abundant wildlife. It's a bird watcher's paradise with hundreds of species from Golden and Bald Eagles to Yellow Finches.

Enjoy the calm, glassy waters found on the Little Niangua. Perfect conditions for water-skiing, tubing, personal watercrafts, and swimming. It's no secret that these waters boast some of the best bass fishing in the Midwest. These are also fine waters for crappie, walleye, channel catfish and paddlefish.

Beds: 1 King Bed, 2 Queen Beds, 1 Sofa Bed

About the area

Very quiet, serene, a place to get away from it all. There are four log homes that sit in the same area so larger groups may be accommodated! We are located about 20 minutes from town, so still close enough to go out for dinner, catch a movie, play miniture golf and Big Guy Golf! There are two water parks nearby - one indoor and one outdoor. Lots of go-kart racing tracks! There is also a 110 store outlet mall within a 30 minute drive!

“Weekend Family Getaway”

Reviewed 25 Oct 2016

Was looking for a family getaway weekend, and boy did we find the perfect match for our family. Kevin and Karen are such amazing wonderful people. This cabin is fully loaded with everything you need for the entire weekend. It is very cozy and decorated perfectly to make you feel like you are right at home. We even was teasing Kevin and Karen about needing a blender and the very next morning guess what we had waiting for us on the front porch...yes a blender. The setting is very quiet and peaceful, and every morning after 7 a.m. you can catch a bald eagle gliding right outside the cabin. I would highly recommend to everyone, you wont be disappointed.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for the WONDERFUL review! We really enjoyed meeting you and your family and sincerely hope to see you all again soon!

“Lovely Weekend with Friends”

“Fwd:AMAZING CABIN”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2012

Just want to say that this cabin was amazing. My daughter and I love it from the moment we pulled into the driveway. The cabin was clean beautiful and the lake was absolutely gorgeous. Our hosts were wonderful and very nice people. Cabin had everything we needed and more. Will definitely be going back many many more times. Thanks so much for a wonderful weekend with my daughter

Owner's reply: Hi Laurie! Thank you for such a wonderful review! We are so glad you enjoyed the home and we look forward to having you back any time! Kevin & Karen

“Relaxing”

Reviewed 2 Jul 2012

Let me start by saying Karen and Kevin are wonderful, they were quick to answer any and all or questions. The home was wonderful from the time we walked in it just felt like home. It was very clean up to date and well equipped. It has no internet and limited cell phone service which was perfect for a vacation. The lake was quite the whole week we were there. I don't think we left the dock unless we had to go for food. Like I said the house is wonderful, the lake was perfect and relaxing, and the location is the best if you truly want to let go of everyday life. I cannot thank you enough for the time we had.

Owner's reply: Hi Elizabeth! Thank you so much for the kind words about our home! We are so glad you enjoyed your time at Poco Risco's Lakefront Log Home Rentals! We were extremely pleased with the way you left the home - I could hardly tell that anyone had even slept in the beds! We sincerely hope that you will come back and see us again! Have a great rest of the summer! Kevin & Karen

“Amazing!”

Reviewed 9 May 2012

This place is beautiful! Even prettier than the pictures. Beautiful blue heron's fly around continually. The view is wonderful and cabin is fantastic. Ha Ha Tonka State Park nearby is worth a visit and the Osage Shopping Mall Outlets is not too far away.

Owner's reply: Debra - Thank you so much for your wonderful comments! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay! Maybe on your next visit you can see the Eagles fly by... ~Karen~

“family vacation”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2011

Had a great time during 5 day visit at Pelican Point. Definitely will try to come back next year. House very clean and nice; exceeded our expectations. We brought a 22' ski boat and wave runner and enjoyed the area - in a more secluded arm of lake and were able to take the kids skiing without the heavy lake boat traffic. Karen was great to work with and prompt in answering any questions regarding the property - highly recommend!

“great time”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2011

We had a great time at the lake and was so surpised by the size of the house. The pictures on the website does not do it justice. It was very clean and the decks just gave you so much more room to spread out. Karen was so nice when we were making reservations and so helpful. Before we left our family was already wanting to make plans for the next trip.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Kevin,

Just wanted to let you know that the week we spent in your Horizon Home was the best family vacation we have ever had. The home is beautiful, comfortable and equipped with all the things you need to have a relaxing week away from home.

I also want to thank you for your help the day of our arrival. Fixing a flat is not the best way to start a vacation. Your assistance was greatly appreciated.

Would you hold on to my security deposit and pencil us in for two weeks next year begininning June 14th? We have shown our vacation pictures to Natalie's brother, sister, mother and father and they would all like to join us next year.

Thanks again for you hospitality. Let me know if there is a problem with my request for the rental next summer.

Regards,

Ron

To Whom It May Concern:

It is rare that a family makes a long distance commitment for a vacation to a place that they have never been to, and to lodging that they know nothing about. I made the arrangements to stay at Poco Risco Homes based on data downloaded from their website, and from discussions with the owner, Kevin Fehrmann.

We were driving from Colorado Springs, Colorado with our boat to a place that we had never been to, or know anybody else that had. Are the location and lodgings as good as the web site pictures showed? Was the owner as truthful about the quality of the accommodations? My family and I were overjoyed to discover a vacation home that was much more than we expected and hoped for. The home was immaculately clean, extremely well equipped, and exceptionally beautiful. The pictures and descriptions that Mr. Fehrmann provided us were an understatement. He has an exceptionally well built home, in both looks and functionality. As hot and humid as the summer can be in Missouri, the air conditioning worked perfectly. The views of the lake from both decks were breathtaking. The boat dock and slip were perfect for our 19 foot boat and for the kids to swim from.

I plan to make Poco Risco Homes a regular vacation destination and have recommended it to family, friends, and my business customers. I hope to be able to purchase a retirement home on the lake from Mr. Fehrmann in the next few years. The people in the town were very friendly. Everything we needed for our stay was not far away.


I would recommend Poco Risco Homes to anybody who is looking for 5 star accommodations for vacation or for purchase of a lakefront home. Please feel free to use this letter of recommendation for anybody that inquires about Poco Risco Homes.
