  • Wonderful and relaxing!

    "We had a wonderful stay. We especially loved the peacefulness of sitting on the deck watching the river. Easy access to fishing and boating. The house is very clean. We only had one issue with the internet and the owners were very quick to respond and handled the issue. Would love to return! Thank you for a wonderful stay!"

  • Our 5th Year In A Row

    "We discovered this gem five years ago, and have spent every Labor Day weekend since. The owners of this property have created an isolated getaway unlike anything you'll find. All they ask is that you take care of it like it was your own and enjoy it as much as they do. The location is remote, but not too far from amenities you need like grocery, gas, fishing, lake recreation, restaurants, etc. The view will take your breath away. There's too much sun in the morning coming from the East, but the afternoon and evening sun from the West makes the morning not matter. Beautiful home, more than adequately furnished, awesome porch, televisions, wi-fi. What else could you possibly need?"

  • Exceptional in Every Way!

    "For 10 + years, Our group of 10 has utilized VRBO for summer vacation accommodations. This lodge stands out from the many (very nice) rentals we have utilized. The Lodge is set atop a hill overlooking a cove on Bull Shoals Lake. Bull Shoals remains as unspoiled and pristine as it was 30+ years ago during summers there with our grandparents. The pictures of this lodge offer only a basic overview of the beauty of the surroundings and accommodations. The lodge itself consists of 3 cottages and a bunkhouse. Our family utilized the east cottage, the meadow house and the barn. Every cottage was immaculately clean. Spa quality towels, soaps and toiletries were provided. Even so, the lodge has a comfortable, easy atmosphere. Every detail is anticipated. We planned and cooked special meals every night. The East Cottage kitchen was extremely well equipped, and did not lack for any amenity. The two refrigerators were ideal to store everything we needed to dine in for our meals. The lodge offers ample dining space around large tables. After dinner, we enjoyed the sunset and reclined on the porch to gaze at the night sky. The grounds around all the cabins are lovely and carefully maintained. Cable and string lighting adds an ambience that is both delightful and relaxing. Like the rest of the property, the dock is very clean and an ideal place to spend the afternoon swimming, fishing or paddle boating/row boating. The hospitality at this Lodge is likewise, exceptional. Owners Lulu and Michael are helpful and gracious. From churning homemade ice cream to advice regarding activities, they are always available to assist. They live on site and provide services to guests, but do so with impeccable timing that is neither "too much" nor "too little". Guests enjoy privacy and intimate family gatherings without foregoing the luxury of careful hospitality. Lulu and Michael are both intelligent and kind. They were at ease with every member of our group, which ranged in age from 13 to 77. All of us, including our 4 teens, want to come back next year! An additional note --- the rural setting and ample acreage surrounding the Lodge is a great plus. Between board games, foosball, swimming and fishing, one need not leave to enjoy the day. However, it is not hard to venture out. Branson, river fishing, boating, canoeing and tubing are all within an easy (and picturesque) 15-45 minute drive from the lodge. We are most grateful for our time at Trimble Creek!"
