“Don't miss out on this one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2011

This was my third time staying at the Waters Edge Motel. You can't ask for a nicer place to stay on the Lake Of The Ozarks. Its right on the lake, the rooms are clean and very comfortable, boat rentals everything right there at the motel. Soo peaceful and beautiful. If you miss out on this little peace of heaven your really missing out. On top of it all, the price is the best, don't miss out on this. Great for families, couples, singles or just about anyone. Owners are hard working Americans who are friendly and very helpful. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

This is an older building but it smelled and looked very clean. The owners have alot of space and extras outside along side the lake that make hanging-out fun and relaxing. The lake side room was very quite. The room was larger than your normal size hotel room.

The Water's Edge is exactly as advertised: exceptionally clean, manicured and calm. Our room was clean and fresh, and the private picnic and dock areas were immaculate. You can safely swim or take out small boats in this quiet corner of the lake. And a nice cool lake breeze to go with the view!

Room Tip: Upper floor is close to car, lower is on lake

The Water's Edge is a gem of a place to stay! The attention to detail was absolutely flawless. Everything was VERY clean and excellently maintained. It had a homey feel and a sense of the whimsical that made it fun. They offered horseshoes, badmitton, washer toss, fire pit, grills, umbrella picnic tables, kayaks, canoe, paddleboat and pontoon rental. We stayed in unit 6 which had a lake view and 2 queen beds. By using the microwave and fridge, we were able to stay and play with ease. It would be a great place to bring the whole family or multiple couples together for a week or a long weekend. The owners were hospitable and down to earth. Loved it and plan to go back!

Room Tip: Units 8 & 9 are great with lakeside access.

My husband and I try to take a trip to WATERS EDGE each year, as we enjoy the fishing on this part of the lake. The service and ammenities are great!!! Not too many motels you can dock your boat at ... very convenient !!! I would definately reccommend a lower level room as the sunrise is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!!

I was just passing through to visit a friend and needed a room for a night. When arriving in the Lake Of The Ozarks, I found people packing into motels like ants, but to enjoy my visit I wanted to be on the lake and I wanted a peaceful rest. I found this motel to be a very enjoyable experiance. My room was perfect in every way. The Waters Edge Motel is right on the lake in a very peaceful and beautiful area. They offer a veriety of boat rentals for fishing or playing on the lake all at a great price. The owners are wonderful people who really work hard to make sure your stay is a great experiance. The price was perfect and I could not resist staying two extra nights. The Waters Edge Motel is the perfect getaway for families, couples and even the single traveler. Don't miss, out on this little peace of paridise.

It was great to see everyone hanging out together and no one in their rooms or playing on their Ninento DS (even with wireless internet available for those of us addicted to our work email and facebook).

Bottom line, it was remote enough for a peaceful vacation, and accessable enough to reach from any direction, and well priced.

The owners are Robin and Bob - ask for them by name - they are great.
