Was suppose to stay 2 days only stayed one. Rooms were newly remodeled. The website gave the impression the resort was only a few minutes from all the fun. It was actually about 30 minutes away. Have to pay a toll fee each time. Bathroom was very small. To give the kids a shower we had to almost have them step out of the shower to rinse them. When I took a shower the floor of the shower was slimmy. Also when my son got in his bed there were crumbs in the bed. He ended up sleeping with me. I checked out the next morning. The young ones had fun on the water slide & the pool was good.

We stay at Cottage 3-4, the room were clean and had everything we needed. If we ran out of anything all we had to do was ask. The owner Melissa was awesome, she came over to where we staying to make sure everything was fine. We came down with two others couples, we all agreed that everything about the resort was great!! We had so much fun on the waterslides also.
Thanks Melissa and Staff.

Sincerely,

I just had a great Saturday at Bear Bottom Resort!!! I had a clean room, could have gone on the Water Slides(looked like lots of fun!), and had a great meal in a pleasant surrounding.
My French Dip was excellent, piled high with beef. The Onion rings were very tasty, not greasy at all. My Ice Tea was refilled even before I asked. The service was second to none. There was live music in the evening, and the owner Matt Sutcliffe sat in with the band...very entertaining!
If you would like a really fun time, great food, and live music, along with a nice place to stay...come to Bear Bottom Resort!

Had lunch here. The food was bad and the service worse. Saw a sign here for Aloha Watersports. Called and reserved two wave runners. Should have known better. Aloha showed up 2 1/2 hours earlier than scheduled and seem aggravated that we wouldn't take them at that time. Found out later that they charged my credit card without authorization for fuel. A charge they never verbally disclosed and despite assurances from the rep that the only charge was the rental fee and tax unless there was damage to the watercraft. Do yourself a favor and if you visit the Lake of the Ozarks, deal with a reputable rental company.In my opinion this guy is not.

bear bottom is a great family get away, the food was good and the beer was the coldest ive ever had any where on the lake. the slides were amazing me and the kids had a great time we will be returning again in sept., iam not really sure what happend with the ppl that wrote the reviews before me but i was treated very well Matt, his wife whos name i cant rember and Matt's son mark were all very neat ppl who will do almost anything for there guest, i would say what probably happened was that they came to bear bottom with a bad aditude looking for a reason to complain and when you brought your complants to matt you didnt reason with him and iam sure that matt dosent want those kind of ppl there and nither would i. and matt iam sure would have made it right if it was a falt of the resorts as ive seen him do before.
