About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 6 Baths, (Sleeps 12-22)

Deer Valley Lodge is another of our Branson vacation homes with distinction. With six master suite bedrooms, each with its own whirlpool tub, TV, and table for private lap top use, Deer Valley Lodge sleeps up to 22 guests(Max). This home has 4,000 sq feet to enjoy and makes it ideal for family reunions and large groups. Located just 3/4 mile from Silver Dollar City and just two miles from Indian Point Marina for water adventure on Table Rock Lake, Deer Valley Lodge is in the perfect location for your vacation. As a guest, you will have access to all the amenities at two off site resorts (about 12 minutes away).

The main level is handicap accessible and has towering cathedral ceilings with an open floor plan of great room with stone fireplace and TV, dining, and kitchen with convenient island. Step out onto the back deck with more dining and gas grill for barbequing. The ceiling fans keep you cool while the screened-in deck keeps bugs out. There are two master suite bedrooms with king beds on this level, each with its own whirlpool tub and TV, and a pull-out sofa sleeper in the great room.

Climb the stairway with log railing to the upper level where you find two more large master suite bedrooms, each with king size log bed and and full size pull-out sofa. These rooms sleep four each and have its own TV.

Head down to the lower level where there are two more master suite bedrooms. The family room has a tournament pool table and air hockey. There are two sofa pull-outs in the family room with a second stone fireplace and big screen TV. Step out onto the second screened in deck and play on the foosball table or just relax and watch the deer or listen to the crickets.

Deer Valley Lodge has more distinctive features and high end quality furnishings. The granite counter tops throughout add a touch of elegance and class.

There is a nice community swimming pool just up the hill with two water slides, a kiddie pool, and hot tub. The common area has a basketball goal, small playground, horseshoes, shuffleboard, and fire ring. In addition, we have made arrangements for our guests staying at any of our Lodges to have access to two off-site resorts (about 12 minute drive) which include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, hot tub, playground, tennis, basketball, etc. Visit our web site below for more pictures and details on Deer Valley Lodge and all our Branson vacation homes designed for larger groups.

Perfectly located close to Branson's many attractions and Table Rock Lake, Deer Valley Lodge, with its charm and amenities, is ideal for your family or group's next visit.

Map

Deer Valley Lodge is located less than a mile from Silver Dollar City. This lodge got its name because of all the deer the construction workers saw while building it. Sitting out on one of the two back decks, you can see a variety of wildlife, including the occasional deer. You can also hear the Silver Dollar Train whistle off in the distance.

Silver Dollar City Amusement Park - This has been one of our favorite places to go in Branson for years. June and I went here on our honeymoon in 1979. It was here on one of our family vacations in the early 90's that June and I started dreaming of having a place where folks with families or groups could all stay together in one place without having to get multiple hotel rooms. We still enjoy the 1800's park theme and all the shows. Be sure to go on the train ride. Kids love the various rides. I told my children that when I was a kid in the 60's, there was a ride here that was pulled by mules. They didn't believe me until I was able to show them a picture.

Table Rock Lake - we love to get out on the lake in a boat. The grandchildren love to get pulled behind on the tube.

Indian Point Marina - They rent most any type of water vehicle from speed boats, pontoon boats, wave runners, and tubes

Sight and Sound Theater - This theater has what we feel are the best shows in Branson.

100+ live shows - So many good shows from Dixie Stampede, SIX, Pierce Arrow, Kirby the magician, and on and on.

White Water water park - lots of water slides, lazy river, wave pool, kiddie area. It's an all day affair.

Every year now, we have to take the grand kids to do the go-carts and laser tag on the strip, which is less than 10 minutes away.

Wow! What a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Deer Valley Lodge! Not only did the house fit our large family, it was close to all of the best tourist hangouts. We enjoyed the pool, fire pit and opportunity to grill a family meal there. Silver dollar city is right down the road which was very convinient. The home owner was super available if we had a need and ready to help. Having never been to Branson before, this trip made me and my family feel we will be back!

Just what our family needed

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Deer Valley Lodge was just what our family needed. All of the information about the house and amenities was right on. The house was VERY clean and I loved the layout. Our family of 14 picked this house specifically for the layout and its location to the lake. We didn't take it any shows as we wanted a place to just enjoy the company of each other and the downstairs extras helped with that. The layout of the house also allowed us to spread out when some needed quiet time. The pool at the top of the hill was great and met the needs of our younger kids. Being so close to the marina was super convenient when we went out on the lake. (We rented a pontoon boat on two separate days.) I appreciated having daily garbage pickup, the kitchen was very well stocked and we will be back! We did take our older kids and their spouses/significant others out one night to Texas Land and Cattle ( in Branson Landing) which was excellent and walked along the water. What I enjoyed best about the house was that it was close to everything but still felt a little off the beaten path. We will be back next August!

Perfect for family gathering

  • 5 of 5

The Deer Valley lodge was a perfect value to join our family vacation. Having two first floor master bedrooms was great as my mom walks with a cane and can’t do too many stairs. With no stairs to enter the home or to access her bedroom, this house was very convenient for her. The open floor plan made together time a breeze. The home was clean and cozy. Kitchen was well stocked with all cooking supplies. There was even a crock pot, griddle, and easy access to outdoor gas grill. We did not go out to eat at all. We had everything we needed to cook each meal in the kitchen. Each level had it’s own thermostat which helped keep all comfortable. Vacationing with kids made the access to laundry facilities a thankful amenity. Bed linens were very cozy and bedrooms were spacious with TVs on private baths in each. Per the pictures, there is not a lot of main level living room seating. If you have kids that use only the lower level game area, this may not be a problem. The game area is awesome! Proximity to Silver Dollar City was VERY convenient and access to off site indoor pool was a fun activity for kids one day. The indoor pool is a 20 min drive, but was fine for us as that is all we planned that afternoon. A playground at the top of the hill was an added bonus for my daughter. Management was quick to answer questions and address issues. Mid stay, I emailed management with a concern. Housekeeping came within 20 minutes to satisfy my request. Booking was simple and electronic keypad entry made check-in a breeze.

Great place and location for large families!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights at Deer Valley Lodge with my large family. The cabin was well equipped to accommodate all 15 of us. The cabin is beautiful from the inside and out. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped with plenty of dishes, silverware and cookware. We truly felt at home. A lot of time was spent playing air hockey and pool. I think the adults had more fun in the game room than the kids. The view on the back porch from any level you were on was serene and peaceful. We will be planning another trip to come back. It was a Very Merry Christmas for all of us! It was great for all of us to wake up Christmas morning and all be under 1 roof. Dave the owner was super nice and a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend this place!

Excellent place to stay in Branson for large families!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights this week at Deer Valley Lodge with a blended family of 8 ranging in age from 20 to 87. The best thing about renting a house for a group instead of staying a hotel is being able to easily gather together for communal activities or to just hang out. Yet the setup of this place where there are 6 bedrooms each with its own bathroom, also allowed everyone to easily have privacy and quiet time when they needed it. The main floor bedroom with easy access to the kitchen and family room was perfect for the elderly in our group. The lower level with pool table, air hockey, and foosball was really enjoyed by the younger folks. The house is very well furnished, clean, and comfortable; and everyone really felt “at-home”. The location is great. Right next to Silver Dollar City and only 15 minutes from the Branson strip. It is very peaceful and quiet. The owner Dave was also very responsive when I had a question fairly late in the evening one day.

I highly recommend Deer Valley Lodge especially for larger families and groups because of the unique bedroom/bathroom setup. Kudos to Dave for an excellent job configuring and maintaining this property!

Nothing extraordinary, just okay

  • 2 of 5

The house looks much bigger in the pictures than in reality. All 6 bedrooms were exactly the same layout and were nice sized. We were really disappointed to find that only 3 small bars of soap were provided (not even enough for all 6 bathrooms). We ended up buying our own bar soap for showers. The game room was fun and a good addition. We did love the screened-in porches! We were quite disappointed in the size of the living room on the main floor. It was small and there was barely enough seating for 5 adults (2 recliners and a 3-person couch). There wasn't even a coffee table to place drinks or appetizers. The dinning room table seats 6. The kitchen was stocked but we did come across some dirty dishes and a non working can opener (so we went out and bought a new one). This home is good if you need a place to sleep at night or to watch TV but we found it lacking for those of us that wanted to sit and talk or play a game or do a puzzle. For the price that we payed each night it was disappointing and nothing that we'd write home about. We won't be back.

Owner's Response: Megan, It seems you still had a good time at Deer Valley Lodge. I would like to address some of your comments. First, since there are many types of toiletries that folks like to use, we explicitly state that the guest is to provide their own toiletries such as soap and shampoo, which your mother acknowledged. We do provide hand soap at every sink, laundry soap, and dishwasher soap. All of the lodges on that street are of the same size and the pictures accurately depict the home. Our Black Bear and Royal Moose Lodges are the only two lodges there which are larger with seven master suites. There are actually 8 chairs for the dining table and an additional two pub tables with accompanying 4 saddle seats for each of those, which your mother said you did use. There is also a table for another 8 on the upper back deck. You did not contact me regarding any of this during your stay. I could have had someone replace the can opener had you called me while there, instead of hearing about this over two weeks after your stay. It seems you biggest concern was the size of the great room, however, that is something I cannot change. I think our Ozark Charm home would have been a better fit for your purposes. I am sorry you were disappointed as we try to make everyone's stay a great memory.
