5 Reasons To Stay At A Vacation Rental Home

iStock_000019101731Large

We might be a little biased, but no matter! There are SO many advantages to staying at a vacation rental home instead of a hotel. Here are our top 5 reasons to choose a vacation rental home for your next vacation:

  1. The Cozy Factor: Let’s face it. It’s tough to get really comfortable at a hotel. The blankets are often scratchy or the sheets on the bed simply aren’t up to par. The dressers are often small and closet space is questionable. No more feeling cramped…vacation rental homes have MUCH more room!
  2. Privacy: How many times have you been awake at night, hearing all of the noises coming from other rooms at a hotel? It’s not pleasant! Taking a vacation is all about rejuvenating and getting the best sleep possible. With a vacation rental, you get all of the privacy and peace and quiet that you could want.
  3. Big Perks: Want to relax in a hot tub? Do some fishing with your kids or grandkids on the dock? Do you want to relax and read while enjoying a gorgeous sunset? These little perks can make a big difference. Sitting on a back porch, sipping your favorite drink sure beats watching a sunset from behind your hotel window!
  4. Eat In or Eat Out: All of our vacation rental properties come with a fully stocked kitchen. Most families aren’t able to eat out for every meal. So pick some oh-so-easy recipes to make for the whole family, then choose a few nights to eat out at a restaurant. Save money and get a break from cooking!
  5. Pet-Friendly: What’s a vacation without Fido?! We have several vacation rental homes that are pet friendly. Making memories is just better when you can bring the ENTIRE family.

Freedom Boat Club at the Lake of the Ozarks

What’s Freedom Boat Club all about?

Founded in 1989, the Freedom Boat Club is our country’s oldest and largest member only boat club. Our first location was started in Sarasota, FL and has grown to 70 + locations throughout the nation. When you join Lake of the Ozarks location you will receive unlimited usage of our fleet of new boats which currently include new 26′ Rinker Captiva 246 Bow Rider, 21′ Rinker Captiva 220 MTX Extreme Ski and Wakeboard, 24′ Hurricane SunDeck SD 2400 I/O, 25′ Crest II 250 SLC Tri-toon.

What does Freedom Boat Club (FBC) have to offer at the Lake of the Ozarks?

FBC boats range from 16 to 27 feet. These boats include:

  • Inshore Center Consoles
  • Offshore Center Consoles
  • Decks
  • Pontoons
  • Bow Riders
  • Sailboats
  • Kayaks

Their boats are guaranteed to be new or like new.  Currently, their boats are all new at the Lake of the Ozarks.  All FBC boats are equipped with four-stroke engines, which are extremely quiet and fuel efficient.  They are also fully outfitted with all of the United States Coast Guard (USCG) required safety equipment.  In addition, our boats may come equipped with depth finder, fish finder, VHF marine radio, compass, stereo, ladder, anchor, and bimini tops.

What are three major benefits for people who become FBC members?

  1. As a FBC member, members are offered unlimited training. USCG certified captains on staff that provide individual instruction. New member orientation includes 2 hours of classroom instruction followed by 2 hours on the water. There’s also additional training for sailing and offshore boating. We also provide unlimited local orientation at all company locations.
  2. Members hassle free boating experience begins when they arrive at the dock.  The dock master helps them get all of their belongings loaded on the boat.  They and their friends or family members head out on the water for a day of enjoyment.  Upon their return, they simply pay for the fuel you used.  They may fuel the boat yourself, or leave that to our dock staff.  The dock staff then help them take all of their belongings back to their car and then they drive away.
  3. FBS cleans the boat, which normally consumes two thirds of a boat owner’s time, leaving only one third spent enjoying the water.  As a FBC member, 100% of your time will be enjoying the water. FBC does all the required maintenance; a boat owner’s average annual cost of maintenance is 15% of the purchase price of the boat.

How can a person become a member?

FBC is currently offering a Charter Member Special for the Month of February. This will lock in prices and offer substantial savings to early birds.

The Freedom Boating Plan has a one-time entry fee of $5,900 and additional fixed monthly payments of $295.  **Charter members who join by February 28, 2014 will receive $500.00 discount on the One time entry fee, plus, no monthly payments till October 1, 2014!
