Family-Friendly Lodge on Lake of the Ozarks
Located along the tree-lined Lake of the Ozarks, The Lodge of Four Seasons allows vacationers to strike the perfect balance between a peaceful setting and plentiful activities. This sprawling family-friendly resort takes advantage of its massive property—stroll amid the japanese gardens, take a dip in a swimming pool, or have dinner at an award-winning restaurant. There’s also Spa Shiki, which was named a Top Spa in the Midwest by readers of Spa magazine.
In the main-lodge lobby, you’ll find one-of-a-kind artwork from emerging talents—a hint of the lodge’s commitment to artisan craftsmanship throughout the property. Guest rooms are adorned with country-style decor and blond-wood furnishings produced in Guadalajara, Mexico. The earthy taupe color palette complements the area’s natural beauty, and floor-to-ceiling windows provide views of the surrounding terrain.
The lodge’s signature HK’s Restaurant & Bar offers steak and seafood along with a vast selection of regional and international wines. It provides breathtaking views of Lake of the Ozarks and overlooks the resort’s Japanese gardens. When the weather’s nice, you can golf on one of the onsite championship courses.
