Just wanted to let you know that we had an amazing time again this year! The weather was wonderful everyday and we all relaxed and had a wonderful time in the warm water. I have attached a picture from our stay this year too! Thanks!

We were taken by surprise, because the houses are so nice. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience, I mean we caught 40 fish while we were there.
We all want to come back next year!

- Our Family stayed at the Poco Risco Pelican Point home for a week in July. The home is in a Beautiful quiet area on the Lake. We have stayed at many other locations on the Lake, this by far was the most relaxing, quiet & semi secluded. We brought with us our Boat, jet ski and canoe. The dock was accommodating for all of our "toys". There were Electrical outlets on the dock, we brought along a Radio for some fish catching music. We even brought with us a pop up cabana for the dock. Perfect to shade the little ones from the sun on the uncovered portion of the dock. Canoeing was a highlight, paddled across from the dock to an island. Fishing was Great. We caught some fairly large Catfish. Had a fish fry on our last night.
The Home itself was comfortable, nicely furnished, and CLEAN. The bed linens, towels, and cookware provided were good. The only suggestion we would have, more eating utensils, to eliminate the frequent washing for the next meal. We used the grill often and the crock pot that was provided was extremely useful. We had Contemplated bringing our own. Great idea if you on the dock or boating all day.
We spent most our time on the dock during the day or the upper deck playing cards in the evening. Beautiful View of the lake. The sunsets were lovely, and the morning haze on the lake after a rain is gorgeous!! It is a bit of a hike from the upper level of the home to the dock. By the end of the week, we had a system. If you are going upstairs, ask if anyone at the dock needs anything before coming back down. We brought our cooler on the dock, perfect for cold water, beverages, and snacks. Bring your noodles, they were an essential part of the lake fun.
Wal-Mart is an enjoyable 20 minute ride. Driving to town wasn't an issue, we enjoyed the scenic drive. Deer and other animals were a welcome sight. Please stop in and Visit Davis Baskets. You won't regret it. We also Toured the local winery, Casa De Loco. Great place. A must!!
Our Family highly recommends Poco Risco Homes and look forward to returning again. The communication and Hospitality we received was one of the best we have had with our VRBO experiences. We can't wait to go back. Thank you!!
The LaVallee Family- Chicago, Il.
This was a great place to stay regardless of the chilly weather! We would love to come back in the summer too! This was a very relaxing stay for the family. We did some fishing, hiking, and grilled. The state park was a great place to visit. We loved the castle ruins and the spring.
Thanks for letting us stay, we loved it!
The Loredo Family
We had a great time! Looking forward to coming back again. We went out and visited Ha Ha Tonka while we were down and had a great time!
Krislyn, Lane, Dan & Jalyn
Thank you for a wonderful experience! This place is a piece of heaven! Thank you for allowing us to “disconnect” in your beautiful home! So relaxing! What a wonderful experience! God Bless!
I like the place so much that I got to come back just 14 days later – looking forward to the next time again already!
Thank you one more time,

The stay and the house was great! The weather was unseasonably warm. We should have brought the bass boat!
Kevin and Karen are very friendly and accommodating. Hope to return.
Kevin & Karen,
We had such an awesome time. Love your cabin, very cozy and felt just like home.
Caught some crappie & catfish, and took a boat ride to enjoy the scenery. We even saw an Eagle!!!
Thank you for the new firepit and blender!!! What a surprise to walk out and see. Thank you for everything. We don’t want to leave, so next year might be staying all week!

Our first visit to the Lake of the Ozarks and one of our BEST trips!
We celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary. The home is fabulous, it secluded, peaceful and serene.
The lake – well, what can we say, so pretty, amazing views, trees changing sitting on the dock, and the stars at night – just BREATHLESS!
Kevin and Karen are truly wonderful… Thank you for your kindness, hospitality and a lasting memorable experience!
We loved our long stay, so glad we added an extra night.
Marty & Kris
Perfect! We loved it!
Came for a mini vacation from Ord Nebraska. Two of the four of us have never been to the Lake of the Ozarks but the two that have, brought us up and showed us a great time! Love the calmness back here but loved getting out to see some of the race boats for the shootout this weekend too! Beautiful place! We will definitely remember this trip. Not to mention this house was perfect for us and had everything we needed an more!

Adam & Justine
We had a great time! The view is breathtaking! Great family vacation!
Kevin & Karen-
We had a fabulous week! You both are just so welcoming! We are just in love with this place! While we were here we went to Bagnell and rode Go Karts, bought some fudge, tubed, skied and rode in the boat a lot! Oh, and fished!
Thank you so much for everything!
The Porters Thanks again,
Lots of Love and Hugs from the Wendts: Jim, Chari, Amanda, Khayle, Billy from Bethany, MO
Our week at the Pelican Point was amazing! We spent time swimming on the lake, shopping at the outlet mall, we ate at the “Beaver at the Dam”, shopped at “Ozarkland”, and we went to “Bridal Cave”.
We also went to Branson and we did the “Ride the Ducks” and the “Branson Scenic Railway”. We also spent a day at Big Surf Waterpark. We decided to go back to Branson and we went to “Lamberts Café” in Ozark, MO. We went to the “National Tiger Sanctuary”, then went to the “Dixie Stampede”.
Our final day we spent the day in the lake with a campfire to end our great vacation!
We LOVE Pelican Point!
The Porters Thanks again,
Ashely Herrington & Ellie Youngwirth
We had a wonderful time here! Thank you so much for making our short stay so great! We can’t wait to come back!
Ashely Herrington & Ellie Youngwirth
Best trip EVER! This is our 5th year coming. We really enjoy swimming, wakeboarding, knee boarding, tubing, and jet skiing. We had fun with our friends and family. We also went to Ha Ha Tonka, Wobbly Boots (for lunch), and Osage Beach when it was rainy/cloudy.
Peetz Family – Maddie, Abby, Jason, Liz, Amanda, Janet, Shawn, Tyler & Zach Delany.
Had an amazing vacation! Scenery was beautiful! Comfortable home – our grandchildren loved the fishing! A wonderful 40th anniversary celebration!
Spent our third year here and as always we had an amazing time! The first was our honeymoon, 2nd time was with our wonderful friends, and this year was to celebrate 2 years of marriage!
Have made and will continue to make so many memories here with the ones we love!

We come back to the states from Sweden every year and this is our second time renting your properties. We’ve greatly enjoyed both stays at your beautiful properties and we’ll be back!
Thanks for the hospitality!
Short overnight stay and it was lovely. Very quiet and peaceful! Exactly what we needed after a long day. We will definitely return!
Vernita & Don McMurtrey
Coming here brought back a lot of memories of my grandparent’s lake home. It has been sold now and they are gone. This place has allowed me to make memories with my grandkid’s and family.
Its been a wonderful time!

Our weekend at Pelican Point was amazing!
I cannot think of a better way to spend time with my family. It was a perfect mix of remote location and access to more convenient amenities. I bought a kayak and paddled around, did a little fishing, cooked food, and enjoyed the family time by the fire.
We hope to come back!
Thanks for everything,
Natalie, Scott, Abigail, Andrew, Isaac & Josh
P.S. Seven Springs Winery was a good daytime activity!
My friends and I spent a wonderful weekend at the Pelican Point Log Home. You guys are just so nice to let us book for the last minute. Everything in the house was so clean and comfortable!
We went to Bridal Cave, the Dam, and Ha Ha Tonka State Park for the past two days. We enjoyed the beautiful natural world and had a lot of fun!
At the house we had two home cooked meals, traditional Chinese hot pot and BBQ. We got together and celebrated our reunion since one of our friends graduated last year and left to KSU.
We had the best time ever! Loved the house and the bird sightings!
Thank you Kevin and Karen for the help and the wonderful house. We really appreciated it! Hope we can come back again!
All the best, Jonyao, Yuan, Shuhao, Liang, Mingying
My sister and I stayed here while visiting my son who is doing his MOS school at Fort Leonard Wood. We had a great time and enjoyed ourselves so much! This is a beautiful location and cabin! Hope to be back again soon!
Sue & Debbie
We gathered old friends from across the state to spend a weekend together. Jessie from Kansas City, MO, Jonny and Katie from Springfield, MO, and Bri and David from Jefferson City, MO.
We play board games, socialized, grilled, hiked and enjoyed the lake views! It was a great weekend and an enjoyable time together. March was a bit chilly but we stayed warm.
Thanks to Kevin and Karen for being welcoming and making the home available to us. Here’s to a GREAT 2016
Hi! We are from Kansas City, MO. Our stay here was pleasant, very enjoyable. The view was tremendous! We celebrated my wife’s 50th birthday and shared the special weekend with some close friends. Everything was as described. House is beautiful and very accessible in both levels. Hope to use again in the future.

Thanks again for a wonderful weekend! We will be back!

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
11/15/13 – 11/17/13
We’ve been trying to come visit my nephew who attends college in Rolla. With a lake so close we wanted to stay there as opposed to a motel in Rolla. This location exactly matched what we were looking for. So peaceful and quiet All I can add is, do we really have to go home now?
Mark & Michelle Ummel
10/11/13 – 10/13/13

I would like to start off by saying that this place was amazing! The cabin surpassed all of my expectations and the area was beautiful. You and your husband should be very proud of what you have here. During our stay, we did a lot of fishing which was OK, then we did a lot of sight-seeing starting with Bridal Cave which was pretty cool and then went to Pirates Cove. All in all would like to thank you and your husband for the best vacation I have ever had and I will definitely return.

“Absolutely Awesome”! LOVED, LOVED, LOVED!!! We had 2 families vacation together for the first time ever. We stayed for a week with plenty to do. Kids kept themselves busy, and it was very relaxing for the adults. It was more than we could of hoped for.
Thank you for opening your home to us and we will do it again next year.

Four fifteen year old boys (Bryce, Bailey, Clint & Dalton) Bob & Jamie – We wanted our son and his friends since toddlerhood to have a memory-maker vacation and it was! Small rural Illinois town from South East of Springfield, IL (the boys graduating class will be 20 kids): Hanging out on blow-up rafts and floats – No boat, no jet ski – simply water and no-tech floats – had a blast! Fishing til midnight, watched old movies saved on the TV here – they loved it all! Went to go-karts, outlet mall, and water park to round out the week. Such energy!
The home and view is simply beautiful – there was almost no boating traffic which allowed a safe and quiet water experience for the boys. I loved the clean and rustic beauty of it all. Bob loved the winding roads (no kidding – the boys would make “dibs” on who got to ride with him).
A wonderful experience. I enjoyed Karen – you are engaging and a joy to talk with! The quality and cleanliness and space was excellent – loved the house!
6/29/13 – 7/6/13
We had a fantastic time! The house was amazing! We had everything we needed. We will be back!

6/29/13 – 7/6/13
Had a great time this year! Kids enjoyed jumping off the dock and floating in the water 24/7!! The house was amazing and we had all of the amenities!! We WILL be coming back again! You both were very accommodating!
Bill & Andrea/Bella & Jack Bingaman
6/22/13 – 6/29/13
This was our second year here. We had a blast! The Peetz family is from Milwaukee, WI and the Delaney/Campagna family is from Kenosha, WI. We are already looking forward to next year. We enjoy swimming, jet skiing, wakeboarding, water skiing and tubing.
The kids were exhausted every night and the adults were relaxed. The best part of staying here is there is something to look forward to about every minute of every day. Taking a break from our lives and reconnecting with family and each other is so easy to do here. Until next year…
P.S. Do not fall off the Jet Ski at 44 mph! You will end up with a ginormous bruise on your butt!

Greetings from the Goodmans!
We are a family of four from Council Bluffs, IA and had our girls bring a friend on vacation here. You have such a beautiful home! We all enjoyed the wonderful deck along with the serenity of the location of the house. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your home. We did a lot of boating so the dock was very useful. We all enjoyed ourselves very much!

We enjoy lots of water sports while here and the kids love the fishing!
We are looking forward to our stay next year…

Thank you so much for opening your home to us! We stayed for a week and it was more than we could have hoped for. You were the only ones that would allow us to rent your home and I hope we did not disappoint. Your house is beautiful and the stay was great! We can’t thank you enough!
Ryan, Lou, Josh, Ben, Brian, Max, Riley, Mason, Hos
We stayed here over memorial weekend with 3 couples. We are from St. Louis and wanted a nice getaway for the weekend. This house was AMAZING and we loved the private dock. The house was very spacious and it was such a treat to have the 2 level decks.
Thank you for the great hospitality. We will be coming back!
Corey, Jess, Dom, Emily, Eric & Laura
Hi Karen, Just wanted to send a quick THANK YOU! The home was beautiful and we had a great time. Also we found another home as well and were wondering if you also owned "Sunset View"? We were thinking of next years vacation already. Thanks! Jason
Just wanted to thank you for letting us rent your home. We had a GREAT time! The home was beautiful and located exactly like we wanted. The family enjoyed everything about the house and the location. Again, thanks for helping make our family vacation one to remember. Kathy
We had such a great time at our first visit to the Poco Risco homes, we came back again this year. Our friends and family rented Pelican Point, Little Niangua Getaway, and Horizon Home. Everything was perfect. The houses are amazing, and the views are even better. It’s an ideal location for swimming and boating on the calmer waters of the Little Niangua.
Thanks again to Kevin and Karen for having us!
Karen & Kevin, Just wanted to let you both know how much all of our family enjoyed staying at the lake cabin! 8-days were not enough!Thanks for all your help in making our vacation a great one.Hope to be back next year if the Lord willing.
Mike & Anne Kelley
Hi Karen. On Behalf of all the Howells, Edwards and Leiningers, we would like to thank you for the use of this wonderful property. we had a great time at Pelican Point and look forward to returning next year. We also liked the additions to the furnishings. I hope that we left the property in the appropriate condition. We are already talking about next years trip and we will get back with you soon when we have an exact date. You can return the deposit to the address below if everything was ok. Thanks
Thank you for such a wonderful vacation full of memories! We had a beautiful furnished home and the perfect location. I think this is the best place we've ever stayed and actually relaxed. Thanks for being so friendly and making this the best vacation! We'll definately being seeing you again without a doubt!
The Stienbarger Family
Greetings from us in Sterling, Ill, Thank you for a wonderful vacation. Everything was perfect and you were so helpful in making our visit pleasant. Kevin was so patient about helping with the boat and Karen so graciously took our sailing pictures.
I'm sure we'll make it back again soon.
Nancy and Ollie
Our vacation at poco risco was the best ever. we have stayed there two times now and we would recommend it to anyone. It is a very nice place and great location .
Julie and Jim Rohe
We come from three different locations. The Howell’s are from Wichita, KS. That is where we all met and lived for a number of years. The Leininger’s are from Dayton, OH and The Edward’s are from San Jose, CA. We come here each year in June. This year June 22nd through June 26th. We found Pelican Point on the internet – we needed three bedrooms and a large living area and this place was perfect. Because Nancy and I come from San Jose we find the heat and humidity a little hard to take. The Howell’s find it quite pleasant and the Leininger’s just take it in stride. We use the time to reminisce and catch up on what has happened over the year. We really love this place and plan on returning as long as we can. The dock is so wonderful to swim off. This is a wonderful place and we always have a great time. Thanks for providing such an excellent property.
The Smith, McRoy, Soest and Harris families from the Cedar Hill, MO area had a great time the week leading up to the 4th of July. Crappie and catfish were fair off the dock and the bass fishing on the lake was excellent. The house was great, the view off the decks was enjoyed by all. Good times, good eating, lots of laughs and a very nice setting on the lake made this an excellent vacation. The baby turtles off the dock made for an enjoyable pastime. We used the grill every night (even for S’mores) and got a kick out of the fish chairs on the deck. The weather was beautiful with only a few showers on the 4th of July. This cabin was in a great location for viewing the fireworks!
Overall, it was a fun and relaxing vacation. So grab a pole and a “minner” (minnow) and hit the dock!
The Smiths, McRoys, Soests, and Harrises
We love the Pelican Point! This is our 2nd year here. Besides our family, we enjoyed hosting St. Louis relatives for 3 days with meals & fun on the dock and lake. Nothing compares to the quiet & beauty of this part of the lake. We are all skiers & enjoy the fact that calm water can be found at almost any time of day especially 7:30 am! The furniture & facilities of the home are wonderful. My husband especially likes the grill. We definitely want to return next year. We do love it here, and had a fantastic week!
Thank you for providing such a great place for our lake vacation.
The Roos’ & Bundy’s
We are from Blue Springs. Our stay at Pelican Point made an enjoyable vacation! We arrived on the 1st of August and stayed till the 8th. The weather was nice and made boat rides, fishing and the whole stay great! We loved having our own dock, made things easy and accessible. The view from the house and this part of the lake was AMAZING!
We are definitely going to recommend Poco Risco!
Thanks for giving a great place to stay and a great vacation.
Ollie & Nancy Butt from Sterling, IL. We’ve been here since August 8th and will leave in the morning (August 15th). It was a wonderful experience for relaxing and sailing – the best sailing day was today (15th) finally some “wind in our sails”. A special thanks to Kevin for his patience launching our boat and helping get it out too. Karen, the pictures you took are great and will be wonderful memories for us. The music show at Main Street Music Hall (at the Landing) is well worth the trip. And you have some nice shops for the girls too.
Thanks for a great vacation, and hope to get back here again.
Nancy & Ollie
We are here visiting from the Kansas City area. A group of ladies enjoying a long fabulous weekend at the gorgeous Pelican Point! We came here to celebrate Eleana’s bachelorette party and had a wild/mild weekend. A word to the wise “What happens at the lake, stays at the lake”.
This was an awesome end of the summer blow-out! Kevin & Karen were SUPER nice & accommodating – even loaning us noodles & offering to bring us bacon! It was a great place to relax and have a good time, secluded from the busy lake-goers. Thanks so much!
Andrew, Matt, Sarah, Marjorie, Mark, Amy, John & Dea
Kevin & Karen,
Thanks for another great stay at Poco Risco! Not first time here but first at the Pelican Point. All of your places are so peaceful and comfortable. We really enjoy our stays here on Little Niangua.
Bev & Ken
Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend. We wanted to just get away and relax and we sure accomplished that. We are going to surely make this a yearly event! We will tell all everything was awesome and will recommend to everyone!

Peace, Light and Prosperity,
2010 Karen & Kevin,
We enjoyed our stay at the lake. We were all very satisfied with the rental of " The Horizon". It was a very relaxing weekend. The guys enjoyed fishing from the dock. We would definitely recommend your home to our friends & family if they should ever want to get-a-way for some time to relax. Also it was a pleasure to meet you both. We seen firsthand that you take pride in making your guests stay relaxing. Hope your weekend get-a-way turned out as good as ours. If we ever return back to The Lake of the Ozarks, we wouldn't hesitate in staying there again.
Tina & Family Indiana
Karen & Kevin,
Just wanted to let you know we had a Great time once again at the Lake at the Sunset View cabin in the Ozarks, both our kids were able to make it and they had the best of times! We are hoping to start making this a family tradition every summer. Thanks again for all your help and such a nice place!>>>>>>MIKE & ANNE
We rented the Horizon's house over July 4th weekend. The house is very nice and located on the quiet end of the lake which is exactly what we were looking for with my 8 month old grandson. We had a problem with the air conditioning on Saturday night and Karen immediately got someone from over an hour away to come and get it running again. Not a small feat given it was Saturday night. Karen is an excellent host and I recommend her properties to everyone.
Thanks Karen for a great holiday vacation!
We had a great time at Pelican Point cottage. It was beautiful, secluded and quiet, but also close to town. We spent 6 wonderful days fishing, swimming and boating around our quiet area of the lake. We were also able to run into Camdenton and Osage Beach in less than a half hour for the times when we were off the lake. Pelican Point is truly the best of both worlds--wonderful log home on quiet part of the lake and a short distance from the fun in town. We highly recommend Pelican Point as a vacation destination.
Karen and Kevin, Thanks so much for an absolutely wonderful vacation. When the original Horizon Home became unavailable at the last minute, you were so very gracious in helping us find another home to stay in. I don't know what we would have done without your help. The house was beautiful, the lake was beautiful and our group had such an incredible time that we've decided to make it an annual trip. We hope to see you again next year!
My family stayed at the Pelican Log Home July 24-30, 2010 for a fabulous vacation. All 7 of us were very satisfied with our accomodations. I have 3 daughters ranging in age from 17-24 and two of their boyfriends were with us. We each took turns making meals and planning our entertainment. We rented boats on two different days and a wave runner. The kids tubed and skiied all day long. We golfed 3 days at 3 different and very beautiful golf courses. We shopped at a very large outlet mall, so we were able to bring home reminders of our stay. I have posted pictures of our trip and many friends have commented on what a great time we must have had. We have no complaints about our stay in the Lake of the Ozarks!!!
Dean and Brenda Gleason
Thanks for getting the check back promptly. As usual, our trip was another fabulous girl’s weekend in your beautiful house. This is our 3rd time staying in your houses and it won’t be our last. Everything is well maintained and you couldn’t ask for more from a vacation home. We’ll see you next year!
(one small complaint was the sofas were a little uncomfortable to sit/sleep and we had problems with getting a playstation to hook up to the TV upstairs-no external plug in) Other than that (it certainly didn’t ruin it), it was a perfect weekend!
Thanks so much!
We had a great time at Pelican Point! There was plenty of room for our group to hang out on the deck or in the house. Couldn't believe how quiet it was at your location!
The Weishaar Family
Thank you for everything while staying at the home at the Lake. Everything was even better than expected, as always, and we were able to just kick back and relax.
We had a great time at the Pelican point log home at Poco Risco.
The extras you provided, meeting us at the boat ramp, helping us in & out of the water, and help at the house were all so appreciated. The home is beautiful, well equipped, and so quiet and comfortable.
We hope to be back.
Laurie & Scott Beavers
Hi Kevin and Karen,
We really enjoyed your sunset view home. The layout of the house was perfect for our families. We especially loved the patio outside, the lake views and the close proximity of the boat dock. The lake area by the house was also a great place to ski, it was a lot calmer than other areas of the lake. We will recommend this home to our friends.
Bret and Deena
I just wanted to thank you for providing such a nice place for our weekend getaway. The Sunset View Home is truly a great place for friends and family to gather. I love the fact that we were so close to the water. And truly, the sunsets were spectacular.
Thanks and have a great weekend,
We had a great time and really enjoyed your place. Will definitely try a return visit next summer and will refer you to friends headed that way!
Karen and Kevin,
Thank you for another wonderful and peaceful family vacation. You are definitely our favorite summer destination; the house is always so clean and ready for us with all the necessary amenities readily available! We appreciate the quiet area and easy accessibility to the water. This year we even caught a pretty big fish! (We tossed him back in for your next guests to catch!!)
Blessings to you and yours and we'll see you again soon!
Joe and Joani Lillo
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.
We had a group of eight guys staying at Poco Risco Rentals. The cabin was very clean. It is located in a very nice cozy cove. We had a great time! I highly recommend staying here. The owners were awesome to work with! They were very welcoming and made sure we were comfortable.
Just wanted to let you know that the week we spent in your Log 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 begining 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.

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 website 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.

Our family rented one of the Poco Risco Log Homes during the Christmas vacation of 2001. The home is lovely and very spacious. Our group consisted of eight adults and three small children. We did a lot of cooking and found the kitchen lacking for nothing in small appliances and cookware. The view of the lake was beautiful. Kevin was so very accommodating in making all the arrangements. We plan on coming back in the future.
Gerry and Susan Fitzgerald,
I wanted to let you know that my family and friends enjoyed our stay at your log home over the Thanksgiving weekend. We left yesterday at 10 am and had a good drive back home.
Now that we have discovered Poco Risco and the Ozarks, I can assure you that I will return with more family and friends.
How awesome in the mornings while fishing off of the dock to see Eagles flying & Pelicans gliding on the water! Looking out at night at the stars & glistening water you couldn't help but feel the essence of God's beauty!!!
Artists who were looking for a place to paint a picture of pure serenity (water, trees, wildlife) that's exactly what you find at the Pelican house!!!
The comfort & tranquilly of your home was everything we wanted, therefore we're making it our number one choice for a lake home.

I want to thank you on behalf of the four couples that spent five wonderful days at your beautiful log home. Over the past 25 years that we have been coming to "the Lake" we have had the good fortune to stay in some nice places and meet some great people. This year was the best yet. Not only is your place beautifully maintained but the views from the house and the deck were superb. Add to that the fact that we were away from the normal noise and traffic that you can find on the lake and you have the makings for a perfect getaway. If this weren't enough your hospitality and willingness to make sure that everything went well were an added bonus. Thank you again for a great time and we look forward to spending time in that new four bedroom house that you are starting!
Thanks so much for a fabulous stay at The Pelican Point log home, what a treat. Also, thanks for helping with getting the boat in and out of the water. We will be contacting you soon for our next stay.
John & Carey
Kevin and Karen,
My wife and I and our guests had a wonderful time at Poco Risco. The home was beautiful and as well equipped as our own home. It was well worth the drive and expense. If anyone is ever looking for a relaxing weekend at the lake, without all the busy action on the water in the Osage area, this is perfect. Waters as calm as a river and a view around every corner. We will no doubt be back.

Thank you so much for the excellent accommodations this past labor day weekend. We all had an incredible time. I am sure we will be back next year.
Kevin and Karen,
Thanks so much for your hospitality and for providing such wonderful accommodations. This was our second stay with you and we are looking forward to visiting you again soon.
Dear Kevin and Karen,
We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay AGAIN! Everyone in our family raved about our last vacation with you a few years ago and vowed that we would all meet there again. It's a nice midpoint for the families traveling from the east and west to meet.
We love the fact that the log homes are somewhat secluded and very private, the homes are very clean and well maintained and the views are beautiful! We had people from age 6 to 78 and everyone enjoyed the fishing, swimming, boating and just lounging around.
It was nice to know that you were there if we needed you, but you respected our privacy and we appreciated that very much. We are hoping that we can all make it back for a spectacular vacation for the third time! Thanks again for everything.

Kevin & Karen,
I can't begin to tell you what a wonderful time we had staying at Poco Risco. The accommodations were the best and the home was absolutely beautiful. From making the reservations to arrival and while we were there you were more than accommodating. Thanks again for your hospitality. We look forward to staying with you again!!>br>
Doug and Kathy Schuette & family
To whom it may concern,
Poco Risco rentals is a great place to stay. Kevin and his wife Karen are wonderful people who do their best to try and provide you with a great place to spend your vacation.
Hello Kevin and Karen,
Thank you so much for the wonderful place to take a family retreat! With so much busyness in our lives these days and everyone going so many different directions it was wonderful to unwind and relax in such a comfortable, quiet, clean environment. We all had a marvelous time and intend on making the stay a common occurrence.
Joe and Joani Lillo
Kevin and Karen,
Thank you for letting us stay in those beautiful cabins. All 4 families had plenty of room, and had a wonderful time. We hope to rent both houses next year!!!!!! We all wanted to stay longer!!! I have already told others of the homes and your hospitality. Thank you again.
Pat & Kay, Bob & Lisa, Frank & Laura, and Dennis & Julie.
My friends and I had a wonderful time staying at the Poco Risco home. The house was beautiful and it had a great view of the lake. We all really had a great weekend and are looking forward to next summer! Thanks for everything!
Thank you for the wonderful weekend. My friends and I all gathered from all over the Midwest to enjoy the holiday weekend and we could not have picked a better place. The location was excellent as it was not in the heart of the business, but down a bit further where it was more relaxed, but not so far that we couldn't find some activity if we looked for it.
Your log home is beautiful and spacious and your customer service was truly second to none. Thank you for making the weekend the best it could be.
St. Louis, MO
We had a GREAT vacation in the LNG log home. It was beautiful and quiet. We had everything we needed! We will definitely stay next year.
Poco Risco was our first adventure with an on line property rental and what an absolute pleasure it has been! From our first inquiry to our departure, our needs and desires were anticipated and surpassed. Thank you for facilitating some wonderful family memories!
We had an excellent time at the home. There were 8 of us, and it was wonderful. We will definitely be going back. The lake is fairly quiet where we are which was really nice for teaching water skiing to our kids. The water is clear and beautiful and goes on forever! Kevin and Karen are very kind and always around to help out. Our boat broke down mid week, and they towed us in. This is a great family place to be, and we are looking forward to our next visit. The home itself was beautiful and spacious. The two decks are huge and have great hammocks.
We had a great family vacation and the house was great. We're already talking about next year. Thank you!
We had a great time! It was nice and peaceful in the area.
Kevin & Karen,
By reading the rest of this page I see it will be rough to be original unless I have something negative to say about our stay. Well, that’s not going to happen. Our whole group had a good time at a great place. I have been renting vacation homes for a few years with the same group. Your place ranks at the top all the way around. Keep up the great work and thanks for a good time.
Brent & the Gang!
We had very quiet and relaxing time in one of the most beautiful places at the Lake of the Ozarks. Very clean log house. Very friendly and helpful hosts. Wish we had more days to spend there.
The weather was rainy, but having the wonderful fireplace and the setting on the lake was peaceful. The time spent was so relaxing, thanks for such a wonderful retreat.
What a wonderful place to get away from it all and relax. After staying in all 3 log homes, I couldn't pick which one we like best. They are all very nice and roomy and have everything we need. Each time we bring someone different, they are very impressed with the log homes and the area. Very peaceful. Thanks for everything. Looking forward to our next trip to Poco Risco.
St. Rose IL
Last weekend was wonderful. The girls and I loved Pelican Point. It will be hard to ever top that bachelorette party. We’re all wanting to make it a yearly getaway now!
To the people that read this - it is worth every penny. Kevin and Karen are great people. They are down to earth and are very accommodating.
Kevin and Karen,
Thank you for your hospitality once again! As in the previous stay, our group had a wonderful time and want to express our delight in the comfortable decor and all the home's amenities (I actually got to taste the steaks this time :). We will probably make this a yearly retreat and of course, we will be looking to stay at one of your beautiful locations. Take care and see ya next year!
Thank you so much for letting me know about your gorgeous log home! As one who usually stays in hotels while working on the road, I was a little nervous about the change to "rustic" facilities. I couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised! The cabin had every amenity I needed, and more. It was clean, comfortable, and quite relaxing.
I hope to come back to the Ozarks in the warmer weather, and will definitely see if you have room for me.
I've been meaning to sign the guestbook from our trip in July 2004. It was GREAT! I was nervous at first- since we reserved the home online-but it was the best experience we ever had. The house was beautiful, spotless, cozy and a relaxing enviroment. I can't wait until our next trip to your place at the Ozarks.
Again, Thank You

GREAT STAY AS USUAL!
THE CABINS ARE AWESEOME AND OUR GROUP HAD AN AWESOME THANKSGIVING THANKS TO YOU AND YOUR RAD CABINS! WE HOPE TO COME BACK SOON THANKS!!!

The log homes are great, this is our second year for our family (cousins) to gather and the accommodations are great for us. Nice for the young ones too.
We had a wonderful family vacation at the Lake of the Ozarks this past August, and your Horizon home was exactly what we were looking for. I knew it was a success when our adult daughter from Baltimore said it was exactly the family get-together she was hoping for and our 11 year old grandson from Kansas asked if we could come back next summer. We enjoyed your spacious log home so much, I hope we can return soon. Thanks again.
Gary & Erma James
This was the perfect place to get away from everything. We stayed with a group of guys for a fishing/guys weekend and had a blast. The house was very nice and well kept and had plenty of room for the eight or so of us. We will be back again.
Saint Louis, MO
Our family had a wonderful time in MO this August! It was exactly what we needed to get away from hustle and bustle of our busy lives and relax. The home was beautiful and perfect in every aspect. The next time we go to MO, we will definitely be staying there again and recommending you to our friends.
The Bedker Family
My family spent 4 wonderful days at the Poco Risco Log Homes! Kevin was great to work with and I knew even before we got there that it was going to be a wonderful experience. The home has everything you could ask for and the view is perfect. We did a lot of fishing off the boat /swim dock. We even caught a couple of fish! We rented a pontoon boat for a day and we enjoyed getting out on the lake. What a peaceful, relaxing time. Thank you for a great family experience.
Kansas City, MO
Both my Dad and I enjoyed our stay immensely. As you know, we stayed in the Horizon cabin. The facilities were great, clean, modern and lots of space. It provided everything that we needed and more, we could not have asked for a better vacation home. I look forward to visiting Poco Risco again.
We had a wonderful time staying at Eagles Roost. The home was just like the pictures online. It was one of my dream vacations come true. Thank you for making sure everything was taken care. You and Karen we so helpful with any questions we had. We will certainly book through you again.
Considering renting at Poco Risco?
All I can say is - do it! This was a great trip for my friends and I. We had a wonderful time in the fully equipped cabin, I can't imagine going anywhere else from now on. Thank you very much for a wonderful trip Kevin. Look forward to seeing you again.
We had a wonderful time on our "girls" weekend together and the Little Niangua Getaway home was PERFECT! We have bragged to all of our friends on what a beautiful home we stayed in...with the waterfront right there and the lovely view. It was awesome! We will most certainly visit again! Thank you again!
Faith and the gals from St. Louis/Illinois
Thank you for letting us stay at your log cabin, it was more than we expected, everything was nice inside and outside, and the fishing and boating was great, This was the best vacation ever! The travel from Iowa was well worth the travel to your log cabin, but we were all sad that the week went so fast and had to pack up and go back to Iowa. We will definitely be back in the future.
B Wright & Family
Cedar Falls, IA
Thank you for the wonderful time we had at the Little Niangua Home. We've vacationed for 22 years together with another family and this house rates among the tops. The only suggestion I could have is to add a fire pit somewhere on the property as we like to have campfires. We would love to come back again sometime. You were very helpful and I appreciate you sending back the videotape we left in the vcr. Thanks again.
Hello Karen this is Derek Davis,
We just spent a week at the Little Niangua Getaway Cabin and wanted to thank you very much for the week. Kim and I enjoyed it so much and are looking forward to our next stay. Again, thank you for a great week!
I would like to thank you so much for making our stay at your log home so great! Next time we'd like to stay longer. We plan on making this a yearly summer vacation.
Thanks, Mike & Lisa
Thanks Kevin for sharing your awesome vacation home. We had such a great time and plan to come back in August. We had considered driving to Florida in August but after having such a great time at the Little Niangua getaway we just had to come back. Kevin is very helpful and always available. He helped us with the boats and also helped us back out a boat and trailer from the driveway when we did NOT pay attention to the no turnaround sign. Sorry about that :) Anyway we had an awesome trip and never left the house by car. We took the boats to HA HA TONKA and the rest of the time we stayed near our dock. The area is so calm which was perfect for a large group with many small children. Thanks again.
We had a great time at your log homes. They are outstanding and we will be back next year.
We are from Austria/Europe and we had a wonderful vacation at your log home. The tornado was a great adventure. Hope to visit again - the house was perfect.
Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! Our group loved it!
Home was the newest one and was very nicely equipped. We will be renting it again later this summer.
Also you did an excellent job on the construction of the home. It is very evident you take pride in your work.
Talk to you soon.
Our stay in the Little Niangua Getaway Log Home was wonderful, my husband and I loved the long weekend in the home. It was very comfortable and the view was wonderful. The Log home had everything we needed. I couldn't ask for more. We have told all of our friends about and shared our wonderful pictures with them. It was so relaxing and just perfect.
Thank you again

Thanks again for a wonderful short vacation. Kate and I really love the property. It is a perfect get away for a few days. We really relaxed and unwind. What a perfect place!!! Please note my new email addresses. Thanks
Thanks Kevin, we had a great stay and thank you for your hospitality. Everything was there that we needed and we enjoyed everything about the house. Thank you again and we look forward to another stay in your house sometime in the future.
Thank you Scott and Amilia
I have to say that we were a little apprehensive about renting a cabin from a website, but were so pleased the minute we drove up to the cabin. Our family rented the Little Niangua Getaway cabin for our vacation first of November, 2003. It was very convenient to be near family in Camdenton. The accommodations were perfect. We were all very pleased with our stay and plan on staying there again on our next visit to Missouri. We definitely recommend your cabins to anyone looking for a nice, quiet getaway in the beautiful Ozarks area.
Our family gathering was almost perfect, thanks to your two homes we rented. It was quiet, peaceful and beautiful. We were 18 people and the two homes side by side worked great!
Doug and Sharon
Our stay at Posco far exceeded our expectations! The home and view are lovely and certainly makes us anxious to return next year. Thank for the "personal touches!"
The entire family had a wonderful time last week at the log home. It turned out to be a marvelous place for the holidays! The house and the setting were both beautiful!
We had a great stay at Poco Risco over Thanksgiving. The layout of your cabin was fantastic and we all enjoyed it tremendously. Thanks for arranging for those bald eagles to fly by the house as if on cue.
Thank you so much for helping make our getaway so perfect! We desperately needed a peaceful, just-the-two-of-us retreat, and thanks to your patient assistance, we found it in the Ozarks!
We loved just spending time in the Horizon home, which more than exceeded our expectations both aesthetically and practically. Just yesterday we were reminiscing about waking up to a lovely view of the water and hearing nothing but the rustling leaves on the trees. Nothing could have been better!
We very much look forward to a return visit.
Ingrid & Arnie S.
Thank You for letting us stay in your wonderful home. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable weekend. Hope to be able to visit again next year as it was such a beautiful place with everything we needed.
Kevin and Lori
After finding your site on the web the log home far exceeded our expectations. We had a wonderful relaxing weekend and cannot wait to stay there again. The location and view were amazing. Thank you for the great hospitality.
Troy & Shelley North
Just wanted to say what a wonderful time my friends and I had staying in one of your cabins. The area is beautiful and the cabins were absolutely wonderful! We plan to be back year after year!
Thank you so much for the stay. We are going to come back this summer. Thank you for all your help during the emergency. Your place was absolutely beautiful. We are going to stay for a much longer time next summer. Thank you again and thanks for letting us use your paddle boat, that was very kind of you. We all had a wonderful time. Next time we are going to rent both cabins.
Thanks, Stephanie and Will
Your log homes were perfect for our family reunion, great view and nice accommodations.
Fred and Carolyn White, K.C. Mo.
Hello Everyone who loves the outdoors- WOW, what a wonderful place we stayed at in MO. Kevin was wonderful and made sure we had everything we needed and then some. The home was beautiful and looked just like his web pictures. The private dock was great our family spent most of our time down there!
Thank you Kevin for sharing this great place with us and we hope to return again soon!
Linda Graber and Family- 9/2003
We had the pleasure of staying in the Horizon House early in Sept., and I want to sincerely thank you for allowing us to enjoy its beauty, design, serenity, ambiance, and comforts...it was perfect, and even better than it looked online! It provided us exactly what we needed as a rural, beautiful escape from our hectic, crowded lifestyle in southern California. Thank you for a fabulous weekend--hope to visit again sometime!
Aliso Viejo CA
My family and I had had a terrific time staying in your newest home at Poco Risco. The setting was fantastic, it was a peaceful week and the view was incredible. Your attentiveness to any needs we had was really appreciated and helped to make our week very memorable. We have already talked about returning again in the near future.
Howie and Beverly Ellis
Thanks so much for sharing your home with us last weekend. We had such a wonderful time with our friends from California. Your home is gorgeous and just added to the ambience of the weekend!! haha.
Thanks for being a part of our memories of a great vacation--hope to see you again!! They WILL be back (in my best Arnold impersonator voice), so we'll all be back.
Take care Kevin,
Cape Girardeau MO
We had a wonderful time and thanks for letting us stay in your beautiful home. It was very clean and everything we had hoped for. It was even better than the website shows. We will be back next year and will try to stay longer.
Thanks for all your help!
This year we were looking for a place to spend our 19th cousin's reunion, my daughter found your places and looked as if they might be large enough to accommodate our family. As it was they were and lovely places, we were very comfortable and had plenty of space and good thing because it rained all weekend and we only were able to get into the lake one afternoon. We still had a great time and are checking with the whole crew to see if they all want to come back next year. We will be in touch.
Thank you. Sincerely,
We had a wonderful and relaxing time while staying in the Little Niangua Getaway Log Home. We were all comfortable and enjoyed the convenience of having our boat and swim area just of few stairs away. The hammocks are great, too!
We (my husband, myself and our two children ages 10 and 5) stayed in the new home on lot 7 (Pelican Point Log Home) in late July 2003. We had an absolutely fabulous time. The weather was warm, but not too hot. The lake is clean and the water refreshing. The house is unbelievable - beautiful inside and out. We had such a great time that we have already booked a repeat trip for next year which is something we have never done before!
Staying in a Poco Risco home was one of the best vacation decisions we've made. If you stay in one of Kevin's homes be sure to check out Ha Ha Tonka State Park, jumping from the "cliffs" (you'll have to ask someone where they are) and The Fish Restaurant for both lunch and dinner.
I found your Little Niangua Getaway Home on your website and booked a week-long vacation for 5 couples and our children in the hopes that the pictures weren't misleading. To say we were all a little nervous upon arrival is an understatement, myself especially, as everyone had trusted my judgment. We were more than happy with the accommodations which met and exceeded our expectations. Unlike most vacations, we had the comfort of home in a vacation-like atmosphere. It was like living on the lake. The house was equipped as promised and once we settled in, we never had to run back to town. We prepared all meals at the cabin and had plenty to do on the lake to keep us going. I only hope the walk up the stairs from the dock helped me burn some of the weight I put on eating!! An extra thanks for returning with a new blender at 10:00 pm on the first night of our stay-that was really going out of your way. You will definitely see us again and hopefully others who we have eagerly recommended.
Thank you for letting us stay at the log home. What a wonderful vacation! The weather and water were great and the home couldn't have been any better. We plan to come back again. Next year our family reunion is at Windermere Baptist Camp (close to you), so we may try to tack on a few extra days with you during that vacation. It sounds like our friends, the Ericksons, who stayed with us are considering a trip back too, as well as other friends from here in Colorado who are looking for a great spot. We'll keep on passing your name around!
Thanks and we hope to see you again.
Tom & Margaret Melander
We made it home alright. We just wanted to thank you for everything; we had a great time! It was the first year I didn't hear dad complain about the rough water. We will never stay on any other side of the lake again, it was beautiful! We'll see you again next year.
Ashley, Rocky, and Lisa Neumann
Thanks for a great week!! Our family had a wonderful time. The log house was beautiful & so comfortable. The area was just what we wanted--quiet & peaceful. It was the perfect setting. We can't wait to come back!!!! We were hoping to see you before we left. Hope the house was okay. We cleaned before we left. Let me know about the deposit. How soon do we have to let you know about next year? When do the reservations start?
Thanks again! It was really a fantastic week!
Pat & Alice Rhea
Our son, daughter-in-law, and their two daughters invited us to go on vacation with them to your beautiful log home. We had a wonderful time. What a gorgeous view we had of the lake, and the castle across the water was an enjoyable attraction to see. You were so gracious and everything in the home was in good working order. We had a marvelous vacation. We hope to return again in the near future.
Ray and Marion Anderson
Crystal Lake, IL
I am writing this for anyone who may find themselves in a similar situation. We needed a vacation, wanted to do something new, someplace new. My wife used the internet to search for vacation cabin rentals within a 10-hour radius south of our home (Northern Illinois). We found this and many others. After a few unpleasant conversations with other locations, a few uninformative exchanges with other locations, and a few that were just not what we were looking for, we decided on Poco Risco.
Kevin was very informative and responsive leading up to and after our arrival. The accommodations were as good or better than "advertised". Kevin was/is very pleasant and professional. We stayed with our two daughters (3 years old) and my parents. We all had a great time; the cabin/home was clean, well laid out, and just a pleasure. The girls (actually, all of us) didn't want to go home. Booking a vacation over the internet can be, by its nature, risky- this was a very pleasant experience that I fully recommend. BTW- this section of the lake was quiet- we loved it.
Kevin, we had another great time at your place. Thanks again for everything. I'm sure we'll be back.
Kevin, we had a great time over New Years. A very nice place with a great fireplace made our stay exactly what we wanted for the holiday. We saw several bald eagles that flew within 30 feet of the house. They were so close you could see their eyes. AWESOME!!! The snow that we got made everything so beautiful. What's up with the castle across the lake? Would definitely stay there again.
St. Louis, MO
We had a wonderful stay in your log home over Thanksgiving. The house is beautiful, the view is great and the location is easy to find but still private. The house is in great shape and has all the amenities we could want! I look forward to our next trip to the lake and Poco Risco. Thanks for a great vacation!
Just thought I'd look through your website a little and learn more about the Lake of the Ozarks.
Regards, John Drew - Drew & Associates
We are making our family vacations an annual event, mainly because we had such a wonderful stay at the log cabin. The lake is beautiful in the spring AND the fall. The surroundings are so peaceful. I miss sitting out on the deck watching the birds as they float over the water.
My little nieces love to go on walks and pick wildflowers for the table. They also love to fish from the dock although they haven't gotten the casting down yet.
I grew up in Missouri and live in California now but going to the cabin at Poco Risco makes me appreciate the beauty of Missouri.
Thanks again for your hospitality!
B. LaRocca and Family
Beautiful place for our family gathering. We really enjoyed our stay. Hope the picture of our 22 mo. old granddaughter catching her first fish off the dock turns out. Hope to visit again next year.
I live in New York, and knew nothing about the Ozarks before visiting. I found your internet site, gave you a call, and you walked me through not only the amenities of your beautiful homes but of the Ozarks area. I especially appreciate your putting me in contact with people who rent boats in the area. Again, your homes were indeed top notch, well cleaned, and in a beautiful, rustic setting.
New York, NY
Loved our stay at LNG log home. We had found the house on the internet, so were very apprehensive and didn't know what to expect, especially as we had never visited Missouri before. The house was lovely, very spacious and immaculate. That part of the lake provides the exact peace and quiet we were looking for. We loved the views over the lake, the private access, the sunsets, the air conditioning--everything about it. I recommend Poco Risco Lakefront Log Homes highly.
We were really amazed at your homes. I really enjoyed what felt like a very short week there. Your hospitality was amazing. You were there every time we needed you and were always willing to help out. I am looking forward to stay there again in the future.
Beautiful place, outstanding view, amazing customer service = relaxing vacation.
Thanks for everything,
BATMAN AKA Brent V.
Hope we didn't wake you with our early departure yesterday. Our daughter is in medical school and we needed to leave early to avoid the early morning fog so she could get back for classes.
I wanted to let you know we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Poco Risco. The accommodations were outstanding. I look forward to our next visit.
Overland Park, KS
Thank You for letting us stay at your beautiful home, it was definitely more beautiful and peaceful than we ever imagined. Hope we did a good job taking care of your home. We all plan on making this a yearly visit and I plan on telling others about your wonderful home.
Thanks Chad and Trisha
Hi Kevin & Karen,
We had a nice vacation at your log home. Next year we hope to stay longer.
First time visit… had a blast!! Thank you for providing a perfect place to get away from it all! We went boating, tubing and knee boarding EVERYDAY! Weather was HOT! Perfect for being at the lake! The Pelican Point Log Home was a wonderful house to share family time and play games in the evening. We didn’t have to eat out once! Toured the lakefront by boat and dreamt of buying a vacation home in the Lake of the Ozarks area.
Thank you – Love,
The Darks – Omaha, NE

We come from three different locations. The Howell’s are from Wichita, KS. That is where we all met and lived for a number of years. The Leininger’s are from Dayton, OH and the Edward’s are from San Jose, CA. We come here each year in June, this year from June 22nd through the 26th.
We found the Pelican Point Log Home on the internet, we needed 3 bedrooms and a large living area and this place was perfect. Because Nancy and I come from San Jose, CA we find the heat and humidity a little hard to take. The Howell’s find it quite pleasant and the Leininger’s just take it in stride.
We use the time to reminisce and catch up on what has happened over the year. We really love this place and plan on returning as long as we can. The dock is so wonderful to swim off of. This is a wonderful place and we always have a great time. Thanks for providing such an excellent property.

7/5/09 The Smith, McRoy, Soest and Harris families from the Cedar Hill, MO area had a great time the week leading up to the 4th of July. Crappie and catfish were fair off the dock and the bass fishing on the lake was excellent. The house was great, the view off the decks was enjoyed by all. Good times, good eating, lots of laughs and a very nice quiet setting on the Lake of the Ozarks made this an excellent vacation.
The baby turtles off the dock made for an enjoyable pastime. We also enjoyed the provided checkers and cards. We rented wave runners from Montego Bay Marina and would recommend their business to all. We used the grill every night (even for S’mores) and got a kick out of the “fish chairs” on the upper deck.
Be sure to get everything you need in town at one time because the drive can be rather time consuming. The weather was beautiful, with only a few showers on July 4th. This cabin was in a GREAT location for viewing the fireworks!
Overall, it was a fun and relaxing vacation. So grab a pole and a “minnow” and hit the dock!

We love the Pelican Point Log Home! This is our 2nd year here. Besides our family, we enjoyed hosting St. Louis relatives for 3 days with meals and fun on the dock and lake. Nothing compares to the quiet and beauty of this part of the lake. We are all skiers and enjoy the fact that calm water can be found at almost any time of the day – especially 7:30 am!
The furniture and facilities of the home are wonderful. My husband especially likes the grill. We definitely want to return next year! We do love it here, and had a fantastic week! Thank you for providing such a great place for our lake vacation.

Memorial Day Weekend 2014
We rented this fantastic home for a tri family weekend. We had a great time. We swam, fished, canoed, and explored the Ozarks Cavern Cave. This was an amazing trip and a fabulous vacation. We made great memories. We wish we were able to stay longer! Thank you again for providing your home.
Thanks so much...

Thank you so much Kevin and Karen for the wonderful home. The stress of our daughter’s wedding and preparations melted away as we entered the cabin. The kids loved having the lower level to watch whatever they wanted to and even a separate deck away from the grownups. It is secluded enough to relax yet close enough to Osage Beach for fun activities.
Oh, and I have gotten ideas for our home in Olathe Kansas too! (my husband’s groaning though)
