“Still a great place for a large group or family”
Reviewed 17 May 2013

Each cabins has 3 rooms and 2 bathrooms so you can easily sleep 2 couple and a couple of kids. They also have full kitchen dining and living areas. The cabins are not insulated well though and during the high heat of the summer I have to imagine that the upper bedroom will be a oven so keep that in mind when choosing who will be in what rooms. The clubhouse has a huge meeting/dining room and a full kitchen. They also have a large game room and a large grill when cooking for a large group. This would be a great place for a family reunion or corporate retreat. There is also a nice pool and kids play area. The owners seem to constantly be reinvesting in and improving this property.

Room Tip: If you plan to use the dock then get a cabin near the water so you have less steps to climb up and d...

My family and I recently stayed at the Holiday Shores Resort in Osage Beach. It's a great quiet, CLEAN part of the Lake of the Ozarks. The property is easily accessible and close to all major shops and restaurants, including the outlets. The building design is very unique. We stayed in the owner's rental, a three bedroom, two bath accommodation with two balconies. This property has ample amenities for those who want to do their own grilling or dining of any kind. The cove is relatively quiet and everyone we came into contact with was very friendly. It's close to the big bridge as well which is a great bass fishing spot! We will be back!

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...
