Lake Ozark Lakefront Living Will Put You In Touch With Your 5 Senses!

I don’t know about you, but after a winter that saw snow and ice almost every week, I’m ready for Spring and the good news is, Lake of the Ozarks is showing sure signs that Springtime is just around the corner!

Lake Ozark Bass Fishing

Even before I open my eyes, I can feel the warmth of the sun upon my face and I’m greeted by the sound of birds chirping and early morning bass fishermen headed to their favorite spots.

As I ease from my slumber, I get the coffee started, and step outside on my deck overlooking the lake, and I can see for miles and miles & I savor the view. What do I see, you may ask?

I see brilliant sunshine dancing and glistening on the water like diamonds and trees beginning to bud and come to life.

The coffee timer goes off, so I get it ready and meander back to the lakefront deck and as I slowly sip, I relish the gift of this beautiful day.  

I close my eyes, inhale the clear, cool morning air & I am reminded, yet again, of the encompassing natural beauty of this incredible, unique place, Lake of the Ozarks.

Lake Ozark Swimming And Fun In The Sun

My mind starts to wander to thoughts of Summer and how I will spend time with my family. I love “Lake Time,” as it is unlike any other time. “Lake time” means jumping waves on our jet skis, swimming and playing with our dogs in the water, taking the boat to our favorite lakefront restaurant, watching holiday fireworks and sunsets-anything that brings my family together.

I encourage you to make time for “Lake Time,” as it will put you in touch with your 5 senses, just as it does for me. To hear, see, smell, taste, and touch, the wonder and beauty of Lake of the Ozarks is an experience unlike any other.

The time is now to create the life you have always dreamed of for yourself and for your family. I would be honored to help you achieve the goal of a lakefront home for your family to enjoy for years to come.

Lake Ozark Fall Evenings

Lake Ozark Moonlit Night

Lake Of The Ozarks is so beautiful this time of year. I know for sure, souls are tended because it feels like time is suspended from the hectic day to day living we all experience. It’s a dark, dark night and I find myself sitting on the porch, a cool gentle breeze touching my face. It is almost chilly, except for my St. Louis Blues sweatshirt and my dog curled up beside me. I have glass of cabernet in my hand as I gaze at the moon and see it reflecting upon the lake like glass. I can hear one lone boat treading slowly in the distance. I can also hear the sounds of the night in the Ozarks-those sounds that lull me to sleep.  Can you hear the cicadas, too? They seem to be taking turns with their music, playing in tandem with each other. These are the sights and sounds that lull me into a deep, tranquil sleep because I know I’m where I belong, Beautiful Lake Of The Ozarks. Won’t you join me?

Lake Ozark Boating And Sunsets

Labor Day has passed, but Fall Fun has just begun at beautiful Lake Of The Ozarks. There’s no need to take your boat out of the water just because it’s October. There’s still so much to see, do and experience! I love grabbing a sweatshirt and taking the boat out for a calm boat ride to my favorite lakeside restaurant. Kicking back, watching football games on the dock flat screen tv with friends and family is always fun. Playing a hand of poker at the Annual Fall Harbor Hop with friends is great entertainment. Relaxing on my deck with a cup of coffee on a crisp, cool Fall morning, watching the leaves change colors or tending a lakeside bonfire in the evening, are wonderful ways to take a break from the hectic schedules we all lead.

If any of these activities sound like things you enjoy, too, give me a call and I’ll be happy to help you find the Lake home of your dreams to create memories with your family that will last a lifetime.

Lake Ozark Lakefront Home, Sunrise Beach, MO

I love living at Beautiful Lake of the Ozarks for many reasons. First of all, it’s a safe and wonderful place for my family to live, and there are several quality schools to choose from throughout the area. Secondly, it’s a beautiful place to live year round, from the lazy Summer days spent playing on the water, to gorgeous Fall foilage, to the Winter time and freshly fallen, beautiful snow glistening on the trees to the budding trees and fragrant flowers of Spring. Thirdly, there is so much to see and experience at Beautiful Lake of The Ozarks, including, but certainly not limited to, exploring the Castle Ruins at Ha Ha Tonka State Park, being adventurous and going Parasailing, Ax-Throwing or to an Escape Room, experiencing restaurants that range from lakefront to fine dining, shopping at unique, specialty stores and so much more.

I could go on and on about why I love living at Lake of The Ozarks so much, but if I had to narrow it down to one thing, I would have to say it’s the People that make Lake of The Ozarks such a special community. Wherever I go, I never meet a stranger because there are no strangers here at Beautiful Lake of The Ozarks-Only Friends!

I’ve been coming to Lake Of The Ozarks since 1975 and some of my best childhood memories were made here, including swimming, skiing, taking boat rides to get candy, and playing skee ball on the Bagnell Dam Strip. There was always fun to be had and so much to see and do that I couldn’t wait to come back every summer.

Summer Fun At Lake Of The Ozarks, circa 1980

I’ve been involved in the Real Estate business, in one aspect or another, all of my life from working on a construction crew, purchasing and managing properties, to building my own home. Then, one beautiful Spring day, I was driving across the Grand Glaize Bridge and I had an epiphany: I love everything about Lake Of The Ozarks, from its scenic, year-round natural beauty; being next to the water; having a great tan in the Summer and beautiful White Christmases, so I decided then and there I was moving to The Lake to live my best life and I never looked back.
