  • Thanksgiving Reunion

    "Our family rented this house for a Thanksgiving family reunion. Our immediate family has a total of 30 people ranging in age from 68 to 2. We were looking for a home with eight bedrooms so each family would have a "headquarters." It was advertised as a maximum of 27 people, but we discussed our situation with Laura and she put an exception on our contract. The house was great and everyone REALLY enjoyed the decks. We even sat out there with our coats and blankets because it was so beautiful. The only disadvantage we could see was that the kitchen/dining area was small and we had to scatter throughout the house when we sat down to meals. The guys spent a lot of time sitting and visiting in the garage. One of our planned activities was a visit to Silver Dollar City and we had quick easy access. No sitting in a 3-4 mile long line for us!!!!! The kids really enjoyed the activities available at the house...basketball, Ping-Pong, foos ball, many TVs, an outdoor playground for the little guys, and they were forever playing cards. We were able to kick back and relax and just enjoy being together for several days. Our farthest family came in from Rifle Colorado, and the closest was from Wichita Ks, and all agreed that it was well worth the trip. We had a couple maintenance questions and there was someone there to attend to them in short order. Laundry facilities were available and very much appreciated. We have been getting together every 4 years now since 2000. It hard to find a place where we can all gather under one roof and this is the nicest place we've been!"

  • Giant hidden gem in Branson - perfect for large groups

    "Tucked inside a very off-the-beaten path area, this home is spacious, extremely well furnished, and perfect for large groups or multiple families. I hosted an business retreat here and we enjoyed the multiple gathering areas upstairs and down, the view of the lake, the outdoor patio, and of course the giant kitchen with almost every pan, pot, and utensil you'd ever need...and two (much appreciated) coffee makers! The extra-large dining room table allowed us to share meals together without needing to spread around the house. The beds are comfortable and bathrooms are fully stocked with plenty of towels. There are several pull-out beds and even a few air mattresses too. All the floors are wooden and it would be nice to have a few carpets to make sitting on the floor more comfortable. I would be a bit concerned about getting to the property in the winter if the weather is bad considering the gravel roads are steep and curvy. The internet connection was not the fastest but was still reliable, which is surprising given the rural location. Cell phone service is not so great. The owner was great to work with and the reservation process was quick and painless. We're definitely looking forward to staying at the Red Elk Lodge again!"

  • Great Place for a Family Vacation!

    "We would have given this 5 stars, except that our mom was with us and there are a lot of stairs! The house has plenty of room! There were 10 adults in our party and no children. Every couple or individual had their own room. The location is great - a wonderful view of Table Rock Lake from the front porch! We were about 10 minutes from everything we wanted to do. The basement has a pool table, but the TV/stereo in the basement is a bit dated and probably wouldn't accommodate newer technology hookups. The TV upstairs was great!"

  • Huge cabin for large family

    "The house had lots of room and plenty of beds and baths and was clean. Communication with the owners was always prompt, helpful and courteous. Kitchen had most everything you could need. Overall we were happy and had a great time. Location was great for nearby attractions and hiking. However, we found maintenance and upkeep lacking. Dishwasher and dryer were clean but full when we arrived. No tray in the microwave, lots of lot bulbs missing and broken receptacles, broken pool sticks. Bathroom door on one of the bedrooms on the lower level had a hinge completely missing and the door was sort of hanging. Fireplace did not work unless there was some trick. One of the rollaways was also broken. Also don't see the point of advertising a foos ball table when it is completely unusable as was mentioned by previous guests. I think it would be helpful to have a binder with directions for things in the house and suggested attractions and directions to some of them. A little TLC could make this cabin amazing."

Branson Travel Tips

Positioned directly in the center of America's heartland, Branson, Missouri is around one day's drive for over one-third of the U.S. population. Known for it's proximity to the beautiful lakes surrounding the edge of the Ozark Mountains, Branson has become one of the most famous vacation spots in middle America. Whether you're looking for a romantic weekend away with your significant other, time to relax with friends or a trip for the whole family, Branson is the perfect destination for you.

Attractions in Branson

Often a favorite of guests to Branson, the Branson Lakes Area offers a gorgeous backdrop for a wide array of outdoor activities all year long. With three pristine freshwater lakes just off the base of the Ozark Mountains, Branson is any water sports enthusiast's dream. Table Rock Lake, Lake Taneycomo and Bull Shoals Lake provide the perfect setting for water skiing, wakeboarding, hiking, swimming and fishing for trout or smallmouth bass. Between the three lakes, Branson is able to offer its visitors hundreds of miles of shoreline, all featuring magnificent views. In addition to the incredible potential for natural entertainment, many businesses have grown around the tri-lake area, offering such entertainment options as pleasure cruises, guided fishing tours and sightseeing.

Branson has earned the nickname "The Live Music Show Capital of The World," and there's ample reason for that. Nearly every day the city of Branson will feature almost 90 concerts, musicals, magic shows or comedians. The city has over fifty different theaters, making it a desirable destination for artists on tour as well as fans vacationing with the hopes of taking in a wide range of shows in one trip. The White House Theater, God and Country Theater and Dick Clark's American Bandstand Theater are known to be favorites of tourists and locals alike. While many of the famous venues in Branson have contracts with specific artists and plan their shows far in advance, the city has also developed a culture that draws in lesser-known up and coming musicians. Whether you're looking to catch a timeless musical or the next big thing, Branson's thriving entertainment scene has something to offer you.

Things to Do in Branson

Celebrity Sightings – Sort of: Branson is home to the famed “Hollywood Wax Museum,” which is the only museum of its kind in the country dedicated entirely to displaying likenesses of celebrities made entirely from wax. Featuring recreations of scenes and characters from your favorite television shows and movies, the wax museum is a perfect destination for the entire family. Grandma and grandpa will love getting the chance to pose for a picture with Marilyn Monroe or Elvis Presley, while the kids will get a kick out of the more current figures, such as Arnold Schwarzenegger. A staple just out on Highway 76, the museum recently underwent a multi-million dollar renovation that expanded the collection even further. Best of all, the Hollywood Wax Museum features stages designed off of famed scenes from movies, so you can pose in all of your favorite heartwarming Hollywood moments.

Golf: Branson is a golfer's paradise, offering nearly a dozen world class courses with flexible scheduling options for tee times. While Branson boasts a wide variety of courses, those looking for a professional-caliber challenge are encouraged to book an outing at the Branson Creek Golf Club. Part of the larger Branson Creek Development, this 7,000-yard course is a favorite among those seeking championship-level play in a friendly setting. Branson Creek Golf Club's par-71 course was designed by esteemed course designer Tom Fazio and has won a plethora of awards and accolades. Most notably, Golf Digest named Branson Creek the "Top Public Golf Course in Missouri". Travel & Golf Leisure Magazine also named the course one of the "Top 100 Courses Under $100." One of the most respected golf management companies in the nation, Troon Management, operates the golf course to the highest standard of excellence, offering an incredible range of amenities including golf lessons and instruction, player assistance and caddying, a fully stocked pro shop and food and beverage services (both in the clubhouse and in mobile carts on the course).

Hot Air Ballooning: Those looking for a more upbeat and adventurous activity during their time in Branson should try hot air ballooning over the city. Branson Balloon, a locally owned and operated business, offers tours by reservation any day of the week. Though tours above the business district can be requested, some of the best sightseeing in the country is available by taking a flight over the Ozarks to gain a view of all the lakes, rivers and mountains. Branson Balloon employs Rodney Williams as their pilot. Williams has over 20 years of experience piloting hot air balloons and can pick up customers wherever they're staying, then drop them off after their ride. The only hot air balloon ride business in the Branson area, Branson Balloon can accommodate up to four passengers per ride- a great option for families and couples alike.

See a Show: If you're looking to take in a slice of the vast Branson music and theater scene, consider seeing the [[http://www.thebrettsshow.com/#welcome Brett's Show]] at Dick Clark's American Bandstand Theater. The show, which has already been running for over a decade and a half, features the multi-talented Brett family performing across a variety of mediums over two hours. Embodying the themes of music, patriotism and family, the show is perfect for all ages and often seen multiple times by visitors to the area.
