Dogwood Acres
Reviewed January 16, 2012

I just read a review slamming D.A. What a bogus review! I've been going there ever since the new owners bought it years ago. I have stayed in every cabin there and have never experienced even 1 iota of what the bad review said. If you want the Ritz, go to the Ritz. If you want a charming, clean, cozy and fun cabin by the Lake of the Ozarks, this is your place. It's owners are two of the nicest people I've met who work day and night to make the stay warm and welcoming. And what does it tell you that you meet many people who come every year with their kids who in turn bring their kids! I suppose there will always be someone who complains about what everyone else loves. Trust me, it's a very cool place.

I've been fortunate enough to stay at Dogwood Acres twice in the past ten years and plan to return this year. YOU CANNOT BEAT The reasonable rates. No, the place is not 'fancy' but is very clean, well kept and a haven from the "Tennis Bracelet and Snooty-Falooty Racquet Club" crowd. Owned by the same family from the late 1930's until Lindy and his wife purchased it, the resort retains the stone and knotty-pine charm so hard to find these days. Each cabin comes fully stocked/equipped with appliances, meal preparation tools, fire places, most have screened in porches, fire pits, bbq areas, bedding, tv and cable. Nothing fancy but everything is comfortable and clean and the main office area is stocked full of excellent books, magazines and games. In the summer, swimming is great from the dock and the year-round pool area is fabulous in cold weather. The owners are friendly, gracious and accommodating, without being intrusive. Great nature walks, photography opportunities, fishing, quiet nights by the fire, cookouts in the summer and beautiful views abound. Again, if you're looking for luxury accommodations, designer fabrics, valet services and constant non-stop vacation action, this is NOT the place for you. If you're looking for a quiet, simple satisfying place away from the hustle and bustle, savoring quiet time, sunrises and sunsets with a cup of coffee on your private porch amidst the pines - You've found HEAVEN on Earth!

I was excited to take a family vacation to lake, and we chose Dogwood acres because of its stellar reviews, but after one day I quickly realized that the owners must have written those reviews. At first impression, this place was filthy and very run down, but I was willing to look past this. As soon as the owner got our check for the week (paid in full up front), she was extremely rude to me and my family. The sorry excuse for a boat ramp is almost unusable (and they charge you to use it). The dryer in the laundry room didn't work (all cottages share one washer and dryer, that the owner also uses to wash all of the sheets for the resort). The rooms have not been sprayed or had the cobwebs removed in years. Also the bathroom was so dirty and had so much mold growing around the baseboards I would not let my children walk inside without shoes on all week. Do not waste your time or money, do some searching and you can find something much more enjoyable for you and your family!

Room Tip: I don't think the rooms have seen bug spray or had the cobwebs removed in years.
