Flat screen TVs

There are two TVs: One 55" TV in the basement, and one 34" in the kitchen. Although we don't have cable at the lake, feel free to use the smart TVs to:

  • Stream your favorite shows on your own Netflix, Hulu, etc. account

  • Stream your favorite music to set the mood during your stay

Use your phone/tablet/laptop to stream via Apple AirPlay or Google Chromecast. The TVs need to be on before they'll show up, but are named "Casa Del Lago Basement" and "Casa Del Lago Kitchen". Just be sure to log out before you leave!

Fireplace

In case it's a little chilly outside and you're wanting to cozy up by the fire, feel free to just flip the switch on the wall to the right of the fireplace to turn it on - it's that simple! Just remember to turn it off whenever you leave the house.

Look for "QCC3003" on your Bluetooth device, connect, and start playing using your favorite steaming app. Stream directly from your phone, laptop or tablet device.

There are instructions on the dock on how to connect via Bluetooth. Look for "Fosi Audio" on your Bluetooth device, connect, and start playing using your favorite streaming app, and stream directly from your phone, laptop or tablet device.

Boat Rentals

Boat & PWC Rentals

Drive Your Own

There are quite a few boat and PWC rental companies at the Lake of the Ozarks. The key is to rent EARLY so you're guaranteed a boat or PWC upon your arrival. Below are a few that my guests have used before and that have a mix of pontoons, tritoons, ski boats, and jet skis:

Always remember, if you rent a boat or jet ski - we have a slip and PWC lift you're more than welcome to use to store the boat during your stay!

Pontoon Boat

Have Someone Drive You
