Stay With Us During Your Next Lake of the Ozarks Vacation

It's a lot easier to get back to Backwater Jack's when you're sleeping right next door! Our "Cozy House" is only about a 100-foot sidewalk stroll from all the fun going on at our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront bar & restaurant. We've still got a few dates open this summer that you'll want to book right away before someone beats you to it!

3 Rental Options
Our incredible waterfront vacation house rental at the Lake of the Ozarks is available in 3 different ways. You can book both floors and have the entire house to yourself or rent the upper or lower levels individually.  

The Entire Cozy House
If you choose to book the entire house, it can accommodate up to 16 guests and you have both levels for a private getaway for you and the family or a bunch of friends. On the other hand, if you only need space for up to 8 people and don't mind some neighbors, one of the following options may better suit your needs.

The Poker Run
For those of you that are new to the Lake of the Ozarks Harbor Hop, here's how it works. You begin at one of the more than 40 participating waterfront bars, restaurants, or marinas on the list. There you will pay an optional $20 donation to register and receive the first card to begin your poker hand. Anyone can play, and you are welcome to register for more than one hand. 

Next, you will spend the rest of the day "hopping" from stop to stop, picking up a card each time that you do. Once you collect your 7th card, you will turn in your completed poker hand at that stop. If you're not completely happy with the cards that you've…
