Becoming an Innkeeper

How it all began...

When we moved to Laurie a little over four years ago, we never dreamed we would be "innkeepers" at a new bed and breakfast at Lake of the Ozarks.

It all started 20 years ago when we stayed at our first B&B, ironically just across the lake in Osage Beach. We visited that same country inn two anniversaries in a row, followed by a couple others over the years. With every passing year and each subsequent trip, my desire to own a B&B grew stronger.

Over 2016 and 2017 our two sons moved out and started their own lives, leaving us with our big country home and a lot of extra space. After just a couple of conversations, the exciting decision was made to start the process of transforming 2200 square feet from the vision in my head to a bed and breakfast reality.

Fast forward to spring 2018. With the addition and removal of some walls, adding a new bathroom and a complete remodel with a rustic/contemporary look, we opened the doors to Big Country Bed and Breakfast! We look forward to each guest and are excited about a great future ahead as innkeepers!
