Which is Best for Your Family Vacation - a Hotel or Vacation Home?
Are you in the planning stages of a family vacation at Lake of the Ozarks? We are so excited for you! We know you’re going to have a blast, and make tons of lifelong memories with your family. The Lake the Ozarks is a great place for relaxing, bonding, and having adventures as well! While you are deciding what to do and where to stay at Lake of the Ozarks, we wanted to share some tips for you when it comes to deciding on your lodging. Many people are happy to learn how vacation homes or condos compare in cost to hotel rooms for a family vacation. But when it comes to the accommodations and the atmosphere, there is no comparison. If you would like to know 5 reasons why your family vacation could be way better in a lakefront vacation home or condo than a hotel, just keep reading.
1) Enjoy a Beautiful View
You chose the Lake of the Ozarks for a reason, and having that lake front view makes your whole trip about enjoying the beautiful lake scenery. When you get to wake up to a lake view, enjoy your morning coffee out on the deck or balcony, and see all the boaters out on the lake, you are able to enjoy the Lake of the Ozarks from a whole different perspective.
2) Have a Full Kitchen
While you are here at the lake, you will definitely want to check out some of the outstanding offshore and lakefront restaurants. But eating out for every meal as a family can get pricey. When you have a lakefront condo or vacation rental home at Lake of the Ozarks it will come equipped with a full kitchen. So, you can cook for yourself while enjoying time with your family and still be enjoying the lake atmosphere.
3) Have All the Right Amenities
When it comes to amenities, a hotel is just not the same. Of course, we have pools available, but we also have boat slips, docks, hot tubs, swim docks, screened-in balconies, lake access, and more. You get to choose exactly the kind of vacation you want, and have the right amenities to make it easy and accessible.
4) Enjoy Your Downtime More
Being stuck in a hotel room just isn’t as inviting as being in a vacation home when it comes to your downtime. Our homes feel cozy and relaxing, and made for accommodating families on vacation. Just sitting out on the deck, having a meal together, or fishing off the dock, are more memorable because of the atmosphere in our lakefront rental homes here at Lake of the Ozarks.
5) Choose Your Space
Because we have such an array of properties, you can choose the exact home to fit your family’s needs. You can choose it by size, or by location, or even by style. We have rental homes that are perfect for a couple's getaway, those that are ideal for large family reunions, and others designed for individual families of all sizes. Whatever your needs, we have a space that can accommodate.
