My husband’s brothers and wives were looking for a long weekend getaway. We found this absolute gem at Lake of the Ozarks. All of the extra touches Todd and Shannon provided did not go unnoticed. We ate meals together, but we also got a gourmet breakfast on our private patio. The furnishings are beautiful inside, but outside is equally impressive with the hot tub, fire pit table, and dock bar. I loved this place in the summer; can’t wait to experience it in another season!

My wife & I wanted an off-season weekday vacation week (5/2-7/21) in a place we'd never been to that wasn't too far away from Des Moines. We spent 5 wonderful nights--2 in the Orchid Room & 3 in the Rose Room--getting to know Todd & Shannon's outstanding hospitality & thoroughly loving their B&B. Both rooms were large & offered awe-inspiring views of the lake at all times, but esp. early in the morning and at night. Being off season & week day, there were few boats so little noise. Just an absolute joy to sit on our 3rd floor balcony each night watching the lights and enjoying the silence. Very rarely we could hear people talking across the lake. In the morning we'd watch the blue herons fly low across the water, with one standing so long at the point just next to the B&B! While we preferred the Orchid's King bed over the Rose's Queen, both had lots of space, comfortable beds & pillows. We used the in-room jacuzzi in both. And used the outdoor large jacuzzi 3 nights. We even used the pool table on 4 nights! The property is modern, clean and well maintained. Easily the best landscaping of any lake-front property we saw. Just amazing. The food was delicious each morning. And both Todd and Shannon went out of their way on lots of little things that make all the difference. They are quite the gracious hosts indeed. If I have to nit pick anything, and that takes some doing, the parking lot has quite an interesting slope due to the small space as it meets the gravel driveway for the B&B & their neighbor. And the drive to & from Hwy 54 on the W is...winding & scenic.

Thank you so much for your wonderful and kind review! For some reason we didn't get a notification and just saw it today- so we apologize for the delay in our response. The two of you were such a pleasure to host and it was wonderful getting to know you. We will have to agree with the slope of the parking, and unfortunately that is something we are not able to change with the way the house was built. We hope you are enjoying the summer and you find time to make it down for another visit in the future!!

My husband and I stayed here after the New years holiday for our 25th anniversary. We could not believe how gorgeous this house is! It's incredibly clean, smells wonderful thanks to the candles around the house, and the view is BREATHTAKING!! Todd and Shannon take the best care of you while you are there. Todd cooked us a delicious gourmet breakfast both mornings and told us tips about the area, things to do and other helpful information. Also, we stayed in the Rose room and it has it's own deck overlooking the lake and a jacuzzi tub. Another nice touch. I can't wait until we can return. Thank you, Todd and Shannon. We are recommending this place to others too!

We stayed at the Garden House to celebrate our 15 year anniversary and loved every minute of it! The home is a great combination of relaxation and adventure, which was a perfect compromise for us. We were initially blown away with the view as we walked thru the front door and continued to be impressed throughout our stay. The service, food and amenities are all top notch; but the owners really set this place apart. This was our first BandB experience and we have no desire to explore anywhere else. If we have the opportunity for another quick getaway, The Garden House will be at the top of our list. We highly recommend for anyone visiting the lake area to considering staying here!
