“Excellent Staff and New Meeting Space”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2012

The girls in our family had a wonderful stay at Holiday Shores. The location is exceptionally convenient, especially for those driving in via Highway 54. Their brand new meeting space is beautiful and perfect for groups and family reunions -- complete with a nice kitchen, large buffet area, two big screen TVs, a downstairs game room for the teenagers, and a covered shuffleboard court. The pool is beautiful and fun for the kids, and the playground and fire pit areas are nice and new too. Our condo was spacious and clean, and the beds were comfortable. And we can't say enough about Lori, the owner. She was a pleasure to work with.

We had a wonderful time! The place was clean, roomy, and the staff was friendly and very helpful. It is situated almost at the end of a nice cove, so we could swim and dock our boat without worrying about rough water. Our unit was right above the swim dock and we had no children with us, so we didn't use the pool, but it looked great too. My only complaint would be the fact that there is really not enough room to park boat trailers near the boat ramp, but it was not a huge problem either.

Room Tip: If you have a boat or want to swim off the swim dock you should consider the lower units, there are...

We have a large business group event here every year and the owners continue to invest money into the property and it grows and gets better every year. The cabins are decent and roomy, the lower cabins are a little dated and need remodeling but still they are nice and have great views of the lake and nice decks. The upper cabins near the office seem to be newer or freshly remodeled and they are very nice. The entire property seems very well maintained. The resort is located right off of the main highway so it is easy to access. The new office and clubhouse is fantastic. They have several huge decks off of the commons area along with a game room, pool, bbq grill area, childrens playground, and computer area and a common kitchen which has three ovens and everything you need to cook for a large group. The staff is friendly and makes sure you have everything you need. The boat launch area is adequate and the docks are the same. If you have a upper cabin and plan to go to the lake be prepared to go up and down about a million steps to reach the water but good luck finding any resort on lake ozark that isn't that way.

Room Tip: The lowers cabins seem to have larger decks, great views of the water and are MUCH closer to the wat...

My business partner and I have been on the road for work for the past four months... so, every once in awhile we look for places to stay other than hotels. We were so happy to stumble upon Holiday Shores Resort.

The spacious accomidations were wonderful. A large fully-equipped kitchen was a welcomed sight. First time in several months that we got to make a meal!

There was a strong wireless internet signal in our unit... which was helpful for business we had to take care of.

The beds were comfortable. My partner was in the lower bedroom and had a difficuilt time getting hot water in her shower. That is basically our only gripe. She just used the first floor shower.

The lake was beautiful. There are two large docks, one is for boats and has free paddle boats... the other is more of a lounging/swimming platform. It was very large with picnic tables and umbrellas. Though we were visiting for business, I can imagine going back to this resort for a real vacation with family. The condo/cabins could hold lots more than two people. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Room Tip: Cabin 9 is the most seculded and has a beautiful view of the lake. It seemed like the lower cabins...

My family and I stayed here and absolutely loved it. The cottages were spacious with 3 bedrooms so everyone had their own room. The kitchen was great and the rooms were very clean. The swimming dock nearby was a lot of fun, too. The only thing I didn't like was that the air conditioning was very loud in the bottom floor room. But other than that Holiday Shores was an amazing place to stay at the Lake of the Ozarks.

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!
