Lakeside Living

(page 1 of 5)


Live at the Lake: Interested in buying a lake home? You can find a few homes for sale at Grand Cru Landing at the Lake on Table Rock Lake. 

If you live in southwest Missouri, you know that nothing says relaxation more than a trip to the lake. While people on the coasts spend their summer weekends fighting for spots on crowded beaches, us 417-landers create our own sunny days in paradise floating around in lazy coves on roomy pontoon boats. Days at the lake mean early-morning boat rides, afternoon water sports and, if you’re lucky enough, evenings cozying up with the family in a gorgeous lakeside retreat. Whether you already have the privilege of calling a lake property your own, you’re planning to build a lakeside escape or you simply like to dream, this water-drenched feature has something for you. You’ll explore three local lake homes filled with designs to aspire to, and you’ll find helpful hints from expert 417-land builders on building your own space. You’ll also learn how to transform your own exterior living space into a dreamy outdoor haven, and you’ll even find a few houses on the market now, just in case you’re ready to take the plunge. Ready to learn all about lakeside living in 417-land? Turn the page, and dive in.—S.W.
