Holiday Shores Resort
Reviewed November 8, 2010

We just came back from Holiday Shores and we could not believe what a bargain it was! It was very clean and huge! It easily accommodated my family of five and the kitchen was huge. It also had all the comforts of home such as cleaning products, washer, dryer etc. We will be back!

Excellent for families - amazingly clean - great part of the lake -- covenient to everything - can't wait to go back next summer! Holiday Shores is the best place we have stayed at the Lake of the Ozarks and we have been there more than 10 times at 5 different resorts. The staff is super friendly and extremely helpful. Our cottage was spotless, right on the water and mere steps from our boat. The boat docks are well-maintained with power available at all slips. The swim dock is huge and also well maintained. The swimming pool is beautiful - exceptionally clean and and kids splash area is wonderful - water shoots from the deck and from various overhead sprinklers - our kids (3 and 9) had a ball!! Rest rooms are at the pool - very convenient. The cottages (we stayed in #28) are great for large groups - one bedroom upstairs with a half-bath, one bedroom on the main floor with king sized bed, its own private vanity area in addition to a full bath, and a bedroom downstairs with a private bath. The kitchen is big enough for all to pitch in with cooking and there is lots of storage. It is furnished with pots, pans, service for 8 and some nice extras - blender, Jenn-air stove with grill, full size fridge and oven. A gas grill is on the upper deck. Two tables with seating for 8 in the dining area and wrap-aroung windows offer beautiful views of the lake. Washer and dryer in the main-floor bedroom are perfect for families and for freshening beach towels. This resort has the most accessible boat ramp we have used at the lake - not steep, nice and wide - perfect! Parking for three vehicles at each cottage - really nice! Located just off Hwy 54, so it is close to mini-golf, shopping, restaurants, gas and groceries. One cove down from Backwater Jacks, a 10-minute boat ride from Dog Days and the Grand Glaize Bridge to the State Park for incredible skiing. Gas is available at Marine Max at the mouth of the cove. Perfect cove for floating in the lake in the afternoon - free paddleboats! There is no daily maid service, but a mid-week cleaning is available for an extra charge. We didn't miss the maid service at all. There are dvd's and videos available at the office (free) and cable is in all cottages. There are also board games to borrow if the kids have had enough sun. A place to clean fish is provided at the dock. All in all, a great resort for family reunions or family vacations. We have booked our cottage for next summer and can't wait to return!
