Bass and Baskets

1117 Dogwood Road , Lake Ozark, MO 65049 USA (Show map)


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!

Just What we Needed

4.8 on April 16, 2018

Not our first visit. We returned because, in every way, our stay exceeds our expectations. Recommend a stay of at least two nights, and we will be back.

Awesome Bed & Breakfast

We love this B & B one of the very best we have ever stayed at. Love the hosts and the breakfast each morning is wonderful. The whole atmosphere is relaxing and has become our home away from home. Love it and will continue to go back every few months when we need a get away!

Quiet restful welcoming retreat

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.

Happy Life

Relaxing and Friendly

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!

Big Benefits to this Bed and Breakfast

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.
