A HISTORIC MIDWESTERN RESORT

The Lodge of Four Seasons has been serving guests since 1964. The founder, Harold Koplar, had a vision to create an unequaled experience in a remote land that would bring enjoyment to people of all ages. The 3,500-acre community of Four Seasons introduced a family tradition of entrepreneurship, hospitality and entertainment to the Lake. In 2016, the full-service, 354-room lodge underwent remodeling with a $15 million renovation that transformed our resort inside and out, offering a contemporary lakefront destination at the Midwest Lake of the Ozarks.
