About Laura

Welcome to our family. That's how we want to make you feel when you vacation in our homes in Branson. Each home has a special part of us in it that we wish to share with your family. As our quote says on our home page, 'Families are like branches that grow in different directions, yet the roots remain as one'

We are a family with a foundation of Christ and pray your time in our homes reflect His beauty and His peace. We pray you will be able to stop and look at the glorious nature he sets before you each day and remember his promises to you.

David, my husband & best friend is a wonderful, humble father of our children, Zachariah and Hannah.

My mother & best friend, who was an extremly talented & beautiful Folk-Artist, was in the B & B business for many years and also the antique business for over 50 years. So I have been blessed by her teaching, to decorate, to create a relaxing and peaceful surrounding that will just envelope you when you enter through our doors. So when you are a guest with us, you are not only seeing a piece of what I love to create for you, but also a piece of my mother's love.

I, Laura, will have the pleasure speaking with you when you call.

Our Family loves the Ozarks and the wonderful, gracious people who make you feel invited at anytime. While you are here you will meet some of the nicest people and you will want to come back year after year.

So Come, Vacation With Us and let us Serve You!!

Why Laura chose Branson

We purchased this home so families can enjoy being only 1/2 mile from Silver Dollar City and have quick access to the Indian Point Marina, which is only 2 miles away. Also, you get to enjoy peace and quiet and have your own parking right outside your door along with having a level access to the home--there is only a 6 inch step up onto the porch. The fun of Branson nightlife and shows are only 6 minutes away!! Swimming Pool with slides/Kiddi Pool/Large Outdoor Hot tub is OPEN from Memorial Day Weekend thru Labor Day Weekend.

What makes this lodge unique

This home provides you with 4 King Suites with private Jacuzzi Baths in each of its 4 baths. Shop by day-soak when you get home to your retreat! Have only a 1/2 mile drive to Silver Dollar City--or walk to the pick up parking lot if the weather is nice! Fantastic Pool along with Kiddie Pool and Hot Tub! Bring your boat or rent one from the marina which is only 2 miles away. If you need extra space our 'Deer Pass Lodge'(116919) is only a mile away and sleeps 27 guests

or our 'Ain't No Better Lodge'(1007000) is just 2 doors down from our 'Willow Oak' giving you additional vacation rooms!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Laura, we had a fantastic time over the Thanksgiving holiday. We had family join us from Colorado and there was more than ample room for the eight of us. The cabin was everything that was advertised and more! We especially appreciated how simple you made setting up the reservation - all we had to do was show up. We were amazed at how it seems you had thought of everything we would need and everyone having their own large master suite was great! We loved how close we were to Silver Dollar City (if it hadn't been cold, we could have easily walked there) and to all the Branson activities. I think we have definitely found the place we will be staying whenever we visit Branson. Again, thank you for everything!

Great place in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

My 2 friends and our families stayed here while vacationing in Branson. Great amenities and location. We could see the lake beautifully and it was only 5 minutes to Silver Dollar City. Kids loved the pool area as well. Great property manager as well.

The house was decent

  • 3 of 5

The house was older: the carpet, kitchen table, the TV's were low quality, washcloths were old. Since there are so many places to stay in Branson, we will not be back here. A positive was that it was really close to the pool and the bedrooms were huge.

Owner's Response: We are sad to hear you had any issues with TVs. Standard TVs in bedrooms and Flat Screen TV in great room. I will personally see to the wash clothes. So sorry that disrupted your stay. We have had wonderful guests this year and this is a first of any said concerns and will be addressed. Carpet is only 2 years old and professionally cleaned every 3 months. Thank you for your time!

Family Friendly

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The kids had a blast at the pool. We enjoyed eating on the screened in back porch together as there was plenty of seating for all of us. It was a great place to stay!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it, only minutes from Silver Dollar City. Very clean, spacious home, had every thing in the kitchen anyone would need. Great screened in porch, played cards there in the evenings. We had 6 adults and 5 kiddo's from 14 to 6, they loved the pool and shuffle board. I would highly recommend this home, we will stay there on next visit if available. Anytime I had a question, Laura, the owner responded almost immediately. Thanks Laura!!!

Was the right size for our group. Location perfect for our planes activities. Kids enjoyed the pool

  • 5 of 5

Nice, beginning to show some aging wear. Large baths were nice. Kitchen was well stocked. Immediate response from owner resolved 2 problems that came up. Everyone liked the lodge and pool. Great location for SDC and Indian Point Marina.

Clean, tastefully decorated, comfortable beds

  • 5 of 5

We had a family gathering with 6 adults and 4 teens. The house accommodated us perfectly. The kitchen was well supplied with dishes and pots and pans. We enjoyed great family time on the screened in porch and at the nearby pool which includes a big hot tub and a gas "camp fire" area with seating. The houses are built on a steep hill, but if anyone has trouble walking to the pool, it's possible to drive.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! Yes, behind the home about 15ft from porch there is a hill. Please walk along level yard along back of home to left and there is a wonderful stone stairway so you don’t have to go up or down the hill. We look forward to serving you again soon! Blessings, Laura
