Giving Thanks for Family – Ours and Yours

This is a special time of year as families gather and celebrate all that they are thankful for.  We find it heartwarming to think of how many families have come together to share time and make memories in our vacation rental homes at the Lake of the Ozarks .  The idea for Lake Ozark Vacation Destinations was inspired by the memories made in our own family and wanting to find a way to pay for a lake home where we could all be together.  That led to a business model of creating that same opportunity for other families, too, by providing lodging as well as property management at the Lake of the Ozarks .  As a result, we have met a lot of wonderful people and made some great friends along the way.  Our Hearts are Full of Gratitude. As we think about all we are thankful for, those people certainly come to mind.  So, in today’s blog, we wanted to share just a few of the kind words our guests have shared with us that we are so grateful for.    Dick and Brenda  of   New Hampshire “We had
