Branson house description
Welcome to the Legacy where the dream of family togetherness comes true. Our family has made lifetime memories here, and we now invite you to make your own wonderful family memories in the home our family treasures - the home families come back to year after year. We welcome you to relax and breathe free here in the serenity of the Ozarks. The Legacy is nestled among the hills of our 450 acre Triple-G Ranch. It's peaceful and quiet here, yet The Legacy is located only twelve minutes north of Branson and thirty minutes south of Springfield. We are ideally situated for quick and easy access to Silver Dollar City, Shepherd of the Hills, and Table Rock Lake via the new Ozark Mountain High Road (bypassing congested highway 76). Closer still, are Branson Hills with the new Payne Stewart Golf course, Branson Landing, music shows, and outlet malls; a relaxing twelve minute drive south on Highway 65.
The TRIPLE G RANCH is a family-owned working cattle ranch. The property features panoramic views, secluded meadows, broad pastures, and expansive hardwood forests. Wildlife is plentiful with numerous wild turkey and whitetail deer and recent bear sightings. There are many farm animals to be enjoyed including horses, cattle, goats, pigs, chickens, rabbits, and dogs and cats. There are babies year round. You won't want to miss this unique opportunity to interact with the animals of the Triple G Ranch.
Meandering through the middle of the ranch you will find beautiful Bull Creek known as the clearest creek in Missouri. Not merely a trickle, Bull Creek flows year-round accommodating canoeing and boasting trout in the Spring. Explorers will delight in discovering scenic cliff overlooks and little hidden waterfalls. The historic Harrison to Springfield stagecoach road also passes through the property. Still standing is one of the homesteads that flourished on this land many years ago.
The Legacy itself is warm and welcoming and invites you immediately to leave your cares behind and unwind in its graciously appointed, elegantly decorated rooms. Couples will be able to relax and rejuvenate with quiet moments in private romantic alcoves, while the kids will be thoroughly entertained playing pool, foos ball, air hockey, or one of our many indoor or outdoor games, or watching videos from our family friendly selection. Everyone will enjoy soothing away the travel tension in our large six person hot tub with its 67 jets. Merely lounging in the hammock with a book from our 1000 volume inspirational library and listening to the fountain's gentle play is enough to help restore one's balance. Or bask in the heat as you rock in your private Infrared sauna. New this year are Brookstone massage chairs to help you release all the muscle kinks from travelling or your Branson activities.
As our guests, you will enter your private resort through the stone turret with its one-of-a-kind copper fountain. From there, your senses will be drawn by the exotic surroundings of our private collection of elephants, giraffes, and African artifacts displayed in the elegant dining room and tastefully decorated living and game rooms. On a cooler evening, the stone fireplace will invite you to bask in its warmth. Our spacious kitchen is fully equipped for your convenience with everything from spices, cookbooks, espresso machine, crock pot, waffle iron, ice cream maker, griddle, and any utensils, cookware, bake ware, plate ware, and silverware you need to feed your extended family. Coffee, sugar, oil, and creamer are also provided for your convenience. And besides everyday plate ware, there are more elaborate plates and wine glasses for a romantic and intimate dinner.
When nighttime arrives, mom and dad can relax in their private whirlpool tub before retiring to the comfy King-size bed in the Italian villa Master Bedroom. The kids will enjoy their own special 'jungle room' adorned with plush animals, toys, and king bed. And grandma and grandpa will enjoy their old-worlde ornately decorated third bedroom. A fourth sleeping-area with a full sized bed is also available. There are 2.5 baths on the main level, 2 of which are equipped with a hair dryer.
Walk down to the lower level and enter your own private elegant rustic lodge with a second beautiful stone fireplace in the living area. There is a second kitchen and large dining area and an air hockey table and electronic arcade game. The lower level has a large luxurious Master Suite with a built-in barn siding desk, a sitting area, and a two-person Infrared sauna. The elegantly decorated second bedroom on the lower level features a king bed and built-in barn siding desk. The third bedroom is intimate with a queen bed and built-in barn siding desk. The 'Daniel Boone' room, with bunk bed and pull-out trundle, is equipped with its own electric 'wood stove,' camp utensils and gear, and child's rifle. There are 2 bathrooms on the lower level, both equipped with a hair dryer.
The Legacy is an upscale one-of-a-kind home and we desire to share it's unique qualities and atmosphere with you. For that reason, we have made it possible and affordable for smaller families by renting the main level only to a party of twelve or less. You can have the same luxurious Legacy experience and still be the only family in the home. Or you can rent the entire home and have all your extended family under one roof for a memory-making family reunion. The entire home is suitable for a party up to twenty-four people.
For your added relaxation we have a massage table that can be set up in any of the rooms. There are several therapists in the area who will come to you by appointment. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable. We are here to help you live your dream.
Our family delights to welcome you to our niche in the Ozarks and desires that your stay at the Legacy refreshes you wholly - body, mind, and spirit.
*Please note this is a family home. It is important to us that both the property and the wildlife be respected. There is no hunting at any time. We recommend this property for small and large families, family reunions, senior citizens, small retreat/renewal groups, ladies Christmas shopping trip, or a ladies getaway.

- The Legacy is located about 13 miles north of Branson. Branson abounds with live shows and attractions for all ages including miniature golf, laser tag, world class golf courses. Lake Taneycomo is stocked with trout and many fishing tournaments are held there. Fly fishing can be done off piers or with waders. Near Table Rock Dam is a favored fishing spot. The Ozarks is beautiful country and affords many hiking spots for any level. Lakeside Wilderness area is a local and tourist favorite. The White River Trails system is great for hiking or mountain biking. Table Rock Lake abounds with bass fishing and sporting activities. Rent a SUP and test your balancing skills.

Manager response: Thank you for your five star rating. The Legacy was our childhood gathering place so we have made it very family friendly. With its many amenities it is entertaining for adults as well as children. Come celebrate family together.
Since 2006, we have been looking for the ideal place to accommodate 20 women getting together to enjoy each other's company. We span three generations and since a third of our group is over 75, safety is a big concern. This is the first place we have been able to find that all of us could be in one house and not worry about the safety factor. There was nothing more that we could have asked for. Bedding and furniture was comfortable. There was ample silverware, dishes, cups, wine glasses and cookware for anything you would want to prepare. It was awesome that we could all sit together in one room to share meals and the living areas were large enough to accommodate all. There were lots of homey and special touches that made our stay super special.We received quick and friendly responses to any questions we had. Nothing was very far away and it was nice not to be in the thick of things of the strip. We are in the process of scheduling our next year's gathering and will be returning. Thank you so much to the staff of the Legacy for helping to provide such happy and special memories.

Manager response: We are so happy that your 7 year search for a suitable gathering area has ended with the Legacy and we are so honored you are booking again next year. We just love hosting our repeat guests. Although elegant, the Legacy is very comfortable and outfitted so you can feel at home. The views and sunsets at the Legacy are so pretty. It is so nice to leave the neon of the city and return home to see the starlit sky. But although the Legacy is away from the city, it is on a family ranch where you can feel safe with family member's houses scattered on the property. So normally we can respond quickly to any questions or problems. We thank you so much for the review and really look forward to seeing you again in 2014. We love our families to make memories over and over again.
A Splendid Family Reunion spot
A Splendid Family Reunion spot
The Legacy home was a splendid place for a family reunion. We had adults, teens, children and infants there during our stay, with plenty of room for all. The photos accurately reflect the amenities and condition of the home. The decor is dated but not shabby, and did not detract from the beautiful surroundings. Branson is a short drive from the house and we enjoyed several venues there. We prepared almost all our meals in the house, feeding about twenty-five people at each, and found the kitchens well stocked and roomy to work in. The hot tub, pool table and other game tables were very enjoyable. We would recommend the Legacy as an excellent option for large groups, especially families.

Manager response: Mom outfitted her home to entertain and feed her growing family. We have enjoyed many family celebrations there, and we are pleased to share mom's "Legacy" with other families so they too can make their own forever family memories. The kitchens are stocked well enough to cook for a large brood and the many amenities make it a place of enjoyment for all ages. We are honored for the Legacy to have been part of your family reunion. Thanks so much for the wonderful review.

Comfort and Elegance in a Beautiful Country Setting
We truly enjoyed your beautiful home; it was perfect for our family reunion. We had five different families coming from across the country - Texas, California, Minnesota, and Indiana - and your home was the perfect meeting spot! The Legacy was homey and comfortable yet elegant, with every convenience and comfort we could need. The youngest member of our party especially loved the log cabin room. :) Marie made renting the home so easy, and she was helpful and professional at all times. Whenever Dad had a question or concern, she called him right back and addressed everything. Thank you for making our family reunion a resounding success - we will definitely recommend the Legacy to anyone looking for a perfect gathering spot in the Branson area!

You Can't Go Wrong With This Home
You Can't Go Wrong With This Home
Wow. We don’t know where to begin to describe what a wonderful and special place this is. Our family came from far and wide (Colorado, California, Georgia, Arkansas, and Texas) and we couldn’t have picked a more perfect place to stay. The kids are all grown and have kids of their own and we don’t have opportunities to be together very often. This beautiful home provided us the chance to reconnect. Close enough to everything but far enough away to enjoy the peace and beauty of the country. The home is incredible. Marie, it was a real pleasure to work with you. Thanks so much for all the good memories. We hope to make it back sometime.

Manager response: We are so honored that your family made great memories at the Legacy. What a great title for your review. It is true, you can't go wrong. If you are a small party of up to 12 people you can rent half of the house with most of the amities or a larger party will fit perfectly in the whole home with plenty of gathering and scattering places. If you have more than one generation under this roof, all will find the accommodations pleasing and will have something for their entertainment with small toys and stuffed animals for little ones, a large video library that is family friendly, a one thousand plus inspirational book library, large screen HDTV screens with satellite, air hockey, foos ball, billiards, chess, card table, board games, and plenty of land to roam. We would love to host your family again in the future.
Amazing home for large groups

This house was well beyond our expectations. Very comfortably slept 20 during our stay - and everyone still had his/her own space without being in each others way. The grounds of the home are amazing!!!

Manager response: We are so pleased the Legacy was beyond your expectations. We do try to go the extra mile to pamper and please our guests. It is so great to be able to get your whole extended family under one roof and yet for that space to feel spacious. We absolutely love our Ozarks land and our hearts are warmed when our guests fall in love with it too. Thank you for your wonderful comments. We would love to host you again in the future.
My family loved this house. We had everything we needed and more. The house was very spacious and comfortable. We had 4 generations under one roof and everyone had a great time. We will definitely come back to The Legacy.

Manager response: We are so happy that all your generations had a wonderful time. We feel each guest and family is important. That is why we take care of the extra little things so our families can focus on the important things like family fellowship and making memories. We would love to host you gain.
We would like to thank you for providing a place like this for our family reunion. The facility was just as advertised. We had 27 people and there was plenty of room for us to spread out an not be on top of each other but yet we were all under one roof. It was not like being in a commercial condo but was as if you had left your house for us to use. It was very homey but yet elegant. I will be recommending this to others.

Manager response: We are so glad you enjoyed your family time at the Legacy. Although very luxurious, the Legacy is also very comfortable and homey. It's a haven for our extended families to reconnect and enjoy quality time together and sometimes for the little ones to finally meet cousins from across the country or even the world. It is a place to make family memories that last a lifetime.
Great time in Branson
Great time in Branson
The Legend is an excellent choice for those families looking for great time. The home provides onsite entertainment with the hot tub, fire pit, pool table and much more. The home is large enough for families to gather but also provides enough space for those looking for a little quiet time as well. In addition to being a great gathering place, the Legend is also well situated just outside of town. Groceries, restaurants and entertainment are a short drive away.

Manager response: Yes, all the attractions of Branson are 10 to 15 minutes away. Then after a day of activities it is so nice to return to the country where you can enjoy the peace of nightime sounds! And in case you just want to spend quality time with family, the Legacy is outfitted to entertain each age group right in the home or outside on Triple G Ranch. Thank you for such a candid and detailed review.
THIS IS AN OUTSTANDING PLACE FOR FAMILIES AND LARGE GROUPS TO STAY AND FELLOWSHIP WITHOUT EVER LEAVING THE HOUSE--IT WAS VERY ROOMY FOR OUR FAMILY OF TEN--WHEN WE DID WANT TO LEAVE IT WAS CONVIEIENT TO BRANSON AND SPRINGFIELD--I WOULD TELL ALL MY FRIENDS THE SAME I AM PRINTING HERE--PREPARE YOURSELF FOR A GREAT TIME-----MIKE

Manager response: So glad your family enjoyed the Legacy and Triple G Ranch. As stated one is very close to both Branson and Springfield, but who needs to leave when you have your own entertainment - large inspirational book library, large family friendly video collection, pool table, air hockey, foos ball, chess, board games, jacuzzi, sauna, and hot tub! Thank you for your wonderful comments.

Year Purchased: 2006
About: Our parents, Lois and Dwane Gaar, along with our grandparents sold their businesses in California and moved to the Ozarks in 1981, purchasing what is now known as Triple G Ranch. We children, Dwanette and Doug, love the ranch which was intended to be our heritage and our children's heritage. As we, Dwanette and Doug, grew into adults and began having our own families, we each built a home on the Ranch. In 2006, our beloved mom passed from this life leaving her real estate ownings to her two children and eleven grandchildren. We are the Gaar Family Trust consisting of Dwanette and hubby, Willis Moore and our eight children - Chelsie (married to Jesse), Amber (married to Jared), Ben, Ethan (married to Caitlyn), Faith (married to Kendall), Grant, Jillian, and Kristina; and Doug and wife, Lee Gaar, with children - Cody, Morgan, and Rachel. We are homeschooling families and have raised our children with Christian morals and a strong work ethic. We love our slice of the Ozarks and treasure being together as a family, enjoying outdoor activities such as horseback riding, hunting, crawdad hunting,and playing in the creek. Our children love the Ranch as we do, and excitedly await the day when they marry, begin to have their own families, and build their own homes on the Ranch.
Mom, Lois, always had a heart for people. Her home was open to many for ministry. She loved life and lived it largely. She was a visionary herself, but she always loved encouraging others to fulfill their God-given visions. Mom, Lois was most happy when her home was filled to the brim with people. She treasured her grandchildren and loved having them so close by that they were in and out of her house several times each day. She loved to pamper people in her home. We have so many wonderful memories of Sunday dinners and celebrations as a large family together in her home. So when she passed, we wanted to continue her Legacy. We enjoy providing opportunity for other families and friends to make precious memories together and to enjoy this beautiful part of the country. And we still have the opportunity to gather at 'mom's' house for family dinners and special celebrations.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
While we are close enough for our guests to avail themselves of all the Branson attractions, the Legacy has its own captivating features. Mom and dad or grandma and grandpa get a 'cool' rating with the teenagers when they display their pool, foos ball, or air hockey skills! The home is big enough for a large extended family to gather together for meals and conversation as well as having enough rooms so that members can get to themselves when they choose. Some of our guests have never been to the country and are amazed by our wonderful hills, bluffs, pastures, and year round creek. Wildlife abounds here in the Ozarks, and you may see deer, wild turkey, and even a black bear. The ranch land is peaceful and lends itself to pleasant walks, a slower pace if desired, and many areas for calming reflection.
