About Us


Welcome to Sunset on the Shoals, if you are reading this page, you are probably wondering a little bit about us. We hope that your vacations here at Sunset on the Shoals can be a part of your family's fondest memories. Check out our Photo Gallery for a glimpse of what we love about Bull Shoals Lake and the surrounding area.

We are Randy and Stef Hartzler. We purchased this resort in December of 2016 in a quest to find a cabin or a lake home with a dock on this amazing lake.

Owning a resort was not our original plan. During our search for a cabin with a dock, we found this cute set of cabins with a swim dock off the beaten path in a great, safe neighborhood.  We believed that with a little TLC  Sunset on the Shoals could be not only a place that we could entertain friends and family but would allow us to expand this cute get- away to the public. 

We have upgraded beds, added roofs to each of the patios, and we have expanded the parking lot to better accommodate the bigger trucks and trailers/boats of todays times. We have updated 7 of the 8 cabins at this time with our goal of finishing upgrades to cabin 2 this winter (2020), which will be our last big project. We have been given great feedback on these upgrades by our returning customers and our base seems to continue to grow which we love to see.

Although owning a resort was not our first plan, once we got a handle on what to do and how to do it, we grew to enjoy sharing our place with you even more.

We both fell in love with lake life when we were younger. We have four kids that also enjoy lake life, like

  • wakeboarding,
  • wake surfing,
  • knee boarding,
  • fishing
  • soaking up the sunshine on the lake
  • and just hanging out with friends in the boat.



We both still reside in Kansas City, MO. Randy works with an exterior restoration business, and Stef is a Physical Therapist. So we run the resort via online bookings, keyless entry and local support staff together.

We both look back fondly on our lake adventures with our families. Our hope is that Sunset on the Shoals can be that place where memories are made for you, your family, your kids, grandkids and friends. We cherish the peacefulness of this amazing lake and the woods and critters that surround us.

We hope that you are able to relax and unwind and fully enjoy your time with us at Sunset on the Shoals.
