Bass and Baskets is a unique waterfront inn on beautiful Lake of the Ozarks. The B&B's name and decor reflect the owners' interests in bass fishing and collecting and selling Longaberger baskets. Built in 2001 all rooms feature fireplaces, jacuzzi tubs and decks overlooking the lake. The four private guest rooms offer themed decor-from a North Woods lodge to Victorian romance. Cozy and inviting common areas are found inside and out. Enjoy your favorite book, the quiet of the night or a swim in the lake. An award winning breakfast awaits you each morning. You'll want to visit this romantic hideaway again and again!

Our room was comfortable, full of character, softest sheets ever. Jacuzzi was appreciated. Wonderful view of the lake. The ground floor is the kitchen/dining and a type of living room. It is so welcoming, attractive and very inviting. Food was luscious and plentiful, with great company. Everything exceptionally clean and lovely. Highly recommend.

What a great place to stay. Very relaxing. The breakfast in the mornings are absolutely out of this world. DELICIOUS and the chocolate chip cookies. What can I say. The rooms artery homey and are very quiet. Will definitely make a trip back there. Don and Shirley Brown

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights after our wedding. The food was home cooked and delicious, and Ed and Debbie took excellent care of us. We had plenty of time to do our own thing if we wanted, but also enjoyed chatting over breakfast. There's a dock for swimming, and the room is equipped with everything we needed for a relaxing stay. I would have loved to stay longer!

Our room was thoughtfully put together and meticulously maintained each day. The two course breakfasts were sensational. And the fishing was good thanks to our guide. I would recommend this treasure to all my friends.

We have celebrated four anniversaries at Bass and Baskets--we just celebrated our 44th anniversary there last weekend! Ed and Deb are the perfect hosts--from Deb's delicious gourmet breakfasts and fastidious housekeeping to Ed's fun stories, we always feel at home here! The rooms are lovely and all have stunning lake views. We highly recommend Bass and Baskets to all our friends and family!

We were there just last weekend and this was our 2nd stay. It was fantastic! We were in a different themed room this time, and liked it just as well. Deb and Frank are so very personal. This is the only B & B we have stayed in and I fear that we are spoiled and will use Bass and Baskets as a comparison. It will be very hard to live up to. We will be back and send others your way too! Thank you for a lovely stay.
