Historical Traveler Reviews Inn at Harbour Ridge Bed and Breakfast Osage Beach
Romantic & Relaxing
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Inn at Harbour Ridge. Sue & Ron have taken care of all the details, and the Inn is beautiful. We stayed in Uncle Bill's Place and loved the hot tub right outside our door. Breakfast the next morning was fabulous. We had a very romantic & relaxing getaway!
Wedding at the Inn at Harbour Ridge
My wife & I were just married at the Inn at Hoarbour Ridge located in Osage Beach MO. This was our first time at a B&B, & we will always remember it. The owner, SUE, was AMAZING. She took care of everything, wedding planning, dinner reservations, photographer, wedding cake, champagne, anything we needed, she took care of it.
We decided to elope somewhere romantic, just the two of us, & we could not have felt more important as Sue made us feel. Her attention to detail was outstanding. She made our little ceremony feel like the most important wedding to ever take place. I truly appreciated her kindness, and willingness to please. My wife made several comments, that she has never felt more like a princess. I , 100%, truly reccommend the "Inn at Harbour Ridge" as the perfect place to be married, or get away for the weekend. The "roll in the hay" barn was a relaxing 2 story apartment complete with everything you need to "GET AWAY" from everything and relax.
ALSO - We recommend WES BEARDEN PHOTOGRAPHY for all of you photography needs. (Top Notch)
Overrated and overpriced
We chose this B&B because of its proximity to a business conference and because they represented that they were on the lake and had a dock for our boat. We reserved months in advance. The facility itself is very nice, clean, well decorated and spacious. When we arrived the owners seemed almost too busy to offer hospitality at check-in. After walking out the back yard and neither finding the lake nor a dock I learned that the "dock" was a short drive away. Plus the dock we reserved was occupied by someone's row boat. I advised that this was a problem and was told by the owner that my spouse had said it was narrow for his boat. That was true but it would fit and would not be a problem in quiet water and I was assured the water was quiet. I was told that I could move the boat myself out of the slip. !!! Are you kidding? I would never touch anyone's boat nor did I think it appropriate that I should be expected to row the thing out of the slip and tie it up elsewhere. The owners then left town and advised there would be a sitter there to provide our breakfast. The sitter was there the next day and was pleasant enough but also seemed like she did not appreciate the burden of house guests with expectations and needs. We paid $170+ a night for 3 nights and not once was our room visited for the purpose of making our bed, emptying our trash, removing wet used towels, etc. We found a roach and some large ants in our room and we disposed of these. The breakfasts were certainly creative and attractive in appearance and fine for ladies with small appetites but hardly the sort of thing that would make a husband happy that he was forced to stay at a B&B. So I would chalk this up as one of our worst B&B experiences and we do a lot of B&Bs. If this was the best at the Lake then central Missouri has a real problem. This is a self-serve B&B, with high prices, indifferent innkeepers who don't like to be bothered by house guests, nice rooms, stale cookies, Culligan water machine that doesn't work, zip for maid service, no view of the Lake - you get my drift. Go somewhere else when at Osage Beach.
We went to this B & B wanting to see the water and have good views. We had been told by the innkepper that she was the best! When we arrived and saw that not only is there no view of the water but no water or lake around. We stayed that night and left. We went to another B & B the next day and found great views and lake front. The Inn at harbour ridge is a far cry from the best. We were very mislead .
I just discovered Trip Advisor reviews and your comments from May, 2006. I read with sincere disappointment your opinion about my location, setting and overall impression of my bed and breakfast.
There is NO information on our website, nor am I aware of any statements ever made verbally that our B & B is "on" the water. We are located "at" Lake of the Ozarks and on a ridge above the Lake, as communicated in our name, "the Inn at Harbour Ridge." "At Lake of the Ozarks" and "on" the water" are little words that make a big difference for someone wanting a view, rather than a peaceful parklike environment. Our website says our dock and the Lake is a half knot down the hill and talks about towering oak trees around the inn, nothing about lake frontage. Now that I'm aware of your displeasure, I'm offering you a one night complimentary stay. In seven years of innkeeping I've never had anyone that offered such critical remarks - and after the fact. As the owner I only wish you had shared your feelings with me personally so a more suitable outcome could have occurred. P.S. I'm glad you were able to find a more suitable bed and breakfast for your getaway.
Can't wait to go back
My husband and I stayed in the Captain's Quarter's, which has a private deck with a hot tub, and we loved it. The house was beautiful, breakfasts were great, privacy was wonderful. We had never done a B & B before, I know when we head to the lake again it's all we will do now, so much better than the resorts I've tried down there. We are recommending it to everyone we know for a close, relaxing getaway.
Our wedding day went on and on - much longer than we had anticipated and made us arrive at The Inn at Harbour Ridge much later than we had anticipated...Sue left our keys in her "secret" place and then scattered rose petals to our guestroom door. We had our first introduction to turn down service at a B & B and enjoyed the little bottle of bubbly she'd left for us. We slept like babies in the featherbedand enjoyed our fireplace the next morning. Even though we had to leave very early to drive back to church for our niece's christening, Sue delivered a wonderful breakfast to our guestroom door. We've already recommended The Inn at Harbour Ridge to all our friends and family members.
A fabulous 10th Anniversary!
The ammenities are outstanding-above and beyond. This was the most comfortable, relaxing vacation we've had. The Inn is the best B&B we've ever stayed at. We didn't want to leave! So many special touches and the breakfast is delicious and elegant! We'll be back with friends!

Sue made our honeymoon perfect
My wife and I went back to central Missouri for our wedding on the first Sunday in June, and then onto the Inn at Harbour Ridge for a three day honeymoon. Sue showed us around the house, suggested a number of great restaurants, and made us feel comfortable from the very beginning. We spent a couple of nights in the hot tub, we sat on the front porch and read, we shopped, and we ate marvelously. Sue's breakfasts were the best way to start the morning and the house was beautiful. We've been passing out cards for the last 2 weeks, and we plan on finding our way back on our next trip to Missouri.
One of the nicest places we've ever been
We went to Harbor Ridge for our 11th anniversary. The house is beautiful and very tastefully decorated. Attention to detail was impeccable. Sue is a delightful hostess and we were so impressed we're planning a return trip later this summer.
Award winning Bed & Breakfast
We spent our honeymoon at The Inn at Harbour Ridge in Osage Beachin the Happily Ever After suite. From the trail of rose petals to our guestroom door to the delicious breakfast delivered to us our stay was amazing. We understand why this B & B was voted #1 at Lake of the Ozarks. Kenny and Melissa

... rescue and went to drug store and all is now well but Lisa now HATES hornets! Met some lovely people along the way ( pity we missed you at the big rocking chair Billie - but we have to move on) The people at Skippys were first class, Thanks for a great lunch! All the other bikers and lovely people who were around really make this trip one of dreams ...
... temperature was pretty comfortable reaching down into the mid 40's, but it rained all freaking night. It never got too hard, but it also never really stopped either until it was time to wake up. Overall, the area got about a 1/2 inch of rain overnight. Luckily, my tent held and I was able to stay dry. This would actually be the only time I had to deal with rain on any of the nights that I camped out.
... a beautiful sunset from my balcony overlooking Lake Ozark, I hurried to the store to get the necessary ingredients. I had to hurry because this was also the night of the season premier of the best show on TV, The Walking Dead!
The steak ended up being great and the show was entertaining as well. The night was very comfortable staying in the suite and I would definitely recommend a visit to Osage Beach for anyone ever passing through the area.
Sunday, Oct. 5th, shoved off from St. Louis for a stressful drive to the Lake of the Ozarks. First the busy 4 laners with the tractor trailers and then the most winding roads ever and absolutely not a single amount of a shoulder anywhere! If you drift even slightly off the edge of the road, forget it. Your vehicle will be rolling around down the bank. Jim drove and I'm sure it was stressful for him. Absolutely no margin for error ...
... music with his kazoo. ;)
I took a spill earlier in the day getting out of the RV (I stepped down onto the ONLY large rock in the entire parking lot and did a not so graceful prat fall onto the curb), so I'm trying to take it easy because my lower back, left hand (that I caught myself with), and my foot are all hurting. At least I didn't break anything...I haven't signed up for health insurance yet! ;)
