I wanted to celebrate my retirement so I decided to look for something at the Lake of the Ozarks and found The Heron House. There were 11 of us and the house was perfect. My husband warned me that pictures don't always reflect the actual property, but in this case the pictures did not do the property justice. Everything was just like the description on-line. We brought our boat and rented the slip right on the property. The grandkids loved the swim dock and used it every day. The fishing wasn't very good, but that was no ones fault. The house had everything you could ever need. It was clean and had plenty of beds, the pink room really appealed to our 3 young grandaughters. The family room had plenty of room to sit and watch TV, read or surf the web on your iphone. The wi-fi signal was weak and could only be used inside the house but was no big deal. The appliances were great and the kitchen was well equipped. It was nice to have a washer/dryer in the lower level. Absolutely no problems the entire week. I would highly recommend The Heron House for large families.

Heron House is nicely decorated and very clean. The kitchen was amazing and very functional. The only thing we couldn't find in the kitchen that we needed was dish towels & cloths, but that wasn't a huge deal. The bedrooms were comfortable and the bathrooms were nice. The sunporch, deck and patio were all great spaces. Unfortunately we picked a chilly weekend to be there so we couldn't enjoy them as much as we would have liked, but for warmer times they would be wonderful. My husband and kids bundled up and spent hours and hours fishing off the dock and caught dozens of small fish. Overall, we really enjoyed our weekend in the Heron House and we would love to go back soon!
