Must Haves for a Luxury Lake Home

There are many phrases and jokes about the Lake life, here are just a few that stand out:

“Life is better at the lake”

“Boat waves, sun rays, ain’t nothing like lake days”

“All I need is sunshine and lake water”

“Take me to the Lake”

“What happens at the lake is laughed about all year”

“Worry less paddle more”

“Lake hair don’t care”

“Whatever, we’re on lake time”

“Love the Lake Life”

The list goes on and on, but they all point to one thing - the lake lifestyle really does creep into your heart, warm your toes, and quickly becomes a place that you never want to leave. What makes lake homes so special? We like to think it’s the memories that are made here! Adventurous, hilarious, and maybe a little dramatic … it all happens at the Lake! If you’ve been thinking about buying a luxury lake home at Lake of the Ozarks, there has never been a better time to do it! With that being said we thought it would be fun to take a look at what really is the “must have’s” in a lake home, and what you may want to add to your “must-have” list while house hunting!

Outdoor Living Spaces

Every lake home doesn’t have to have lake access (although it’s certainly a huge perk!), but they do need to have outdoor living spaces! These aren’t just popular at the Lake, many are realizing the benefit of having a place outdoors where they can relax and de-stress. Decks, patios, porches place where you can cook and entertain, light some ambiance candles or campfires, and really enjoy more time outdoors than ever.

Large Windows

If you are touring homes on the Lake, as soon as you open the front door, chances are you’ll be met with floor to ceiling windows and a BREATHTAKING view! Large windows make for the perfect opportunity to appreciate the view every single day.

A Fireplace

Maybe you don’t need this in the summer, but if you want to come out to your Lake home during the cooler winter months, a cozy fireplace is going to add the perfect amount of charm and care.

A Private Dock

If you have lake access, you really want to have a dock attached to your property! Not only will a dock provide a better opportunity to spread out and enjoy those warm summer afternoons and those breathtaking summer sunsets, but they also make it easy for you to come and go by water without having to arrange drop-offs, pickups, or take your vehicle down to the community dock.

Additional Bedrooms

This may sound like a given, but not everyone is buying their vacation home to share with others! With that being said, even if you are looking for something that you and your significant other can enjoy together, there may come a time when you want to bring friends or family along with you! If you can find a home with a guest bedroom and a separate bath, chances are you’ll be thankful for it soon.
