In 1946, a butcher shop owner from St. Louis took his wife and 3 children on vacation to a small fishing resort in
undeveloped area known as Lake of the Ozarks. It was 'love at first visit' to the resort for Jake Drake, which led
him to purchase the small resort known as Lake View Beach. Times were rough for Jake as he worked the resort
and his butcher shop. Eventually he was able to sell his shop in St. Louis and move his family to the lake, at the
protest of his wife Ruth, as the lake was nothing but wilderness. Jake’s two sons, Dan & John ages 7 & 5, were
in heaven with their newfound playground at their back door. Over the years, the boys sharpened their skills at
hunting, fishing and water sports. At the age of 20, Dan married his high school sweetheart, Kay, and very soon
after came Vicki, Chris and Jake (known as Jake Jr.). With a family to support, Dan started his own marina business
next to the resort called Drake Marine. In the early 80s Dan phased out of the marine business and purchased
Lakeview from his father, Jake Sr., so that Jake Sr. could retire from the resort. Jake Sr. passed away in 1995.
For the past 27 years Dan and Jake Jr. have been working the resort to make it a destination that families will
want to return to year after year.
