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!

Amazing property that worked perfectly for our woman's group! Having walk-in showers on main floor was fantastic due to some in our group with limited mobility.

We needed for nothing when we cooked for the kitchen was well accommodated with pots and pans. Everything was spotless and Laura was fantastic to work with. Even gave us some excellenct restaurant choices. Always was there to take our call. Again, amazing property, well maintained and great people to work with. Made everything so easy--we will be back!

Nice location and club house. However the house is outdated and was not cleaned appropriately.

  • 2 of 5

The home is in a nice location by the lake and close to the club house. Nice pool and activities to check out. Very close to Silver Dollar City. The home itself has outdated furniture and furnishings. I stayed upstairs and the room had not been cleaned. Pulled food and dirty tissues out from the pullout bed, food crumbs on the mattress under the daybed. The carpet in our room didn't seem to be vacuumed. The downstairs bedrooms seemed to be slightly cleaner than upstairs. The house was very dusty and smelled of cat and cat litter. Two of the people staying in the group are allergic to cats and could not even tolerate sitting on the living room furniture. The dust was very thick throughout the entire home. The wood floor in the living room and kitchen turned everyone's feet black if the walked around barefoot even for a short amount of time. Several of the dishes especially the cups and glasses were not clean and had to be washed before we could untilize them.

The screened in porch was the nicest part of the home. We enjoyed sitting outside to eat or drink coffee.

Overall the location is nice and the screened in porch and front porch are nice and enjoyable. The furniture/carpet is outdated and the home is not appropriately cleaned. I have stayed in several home rentals and never experienced one as dirty as this one.

The owner was nice and easy to work with overall.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, I apologize that you don't care for antique furnishings. As you will see in pictures, some of our side tables/bedside are antiques. When I spoke with you you did not respond with any of these responses except you had a wonderful stay with your 7 children. I personally inspect my properties prior to any guest arrival and guarantee the cleanliest since its also my cleaning co that cleans my properties. As I drove by I also noticed the children playing outside with no shoes on and on pavement running back and forth-- I can also have a strict no pet policy and there have never been any pets in our property. I wish you brought any of this to my attention when I spoke with you. Wishing you nothing but the best and I stand behind my properties and what they have given to guests who have returned over and over again.

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had so much fun at our stay in Branson, Laura was so helpful and prompt with any questions. The 4 teens we had with us are very eager to return and have requested to stay in the same location it literally only took a few minutes to get to Silver Dollar City from this house. We are already trying to figure out when we can make our next trip. Thank you so much Laura we truly enjoyed our stay in your home.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our family from across the country met in Branson at Willow Oak and another property owned by Laura and family. We ranged in age from 6 months to 72. Willow Oak was very comfortable and had rooms that held families very comfortably. The kitchen was great. So many things provided. The screen porch was wonderful, but the pool was enjoyed probably more than the house! Everyone was friendly, and Willow Oak is close to everything. Our week could not have been better!
