About the property

Cabin with 3Br/2B plus Cute 1Br/1B Separate Bungalow Sleeps 6 to 9

A picturesque site at the 'Deep Water Chute' on Lake Taneycomo about a mile down from Table Rock Dam. Secluded across from 200 foot bluffs with massive oaks shading covered porches and decks. The primary residence cabin has 3br & 2baths, is fully appointed and provisioned, including Cable/WiFi/Washer-Dryer/Hottub. Adjacent to the main residence, connected by decks is a two room bungalow 'guest house' with separate mini=kitchen and full bath. The bungalow has just been redone from the floods in January 2016. Ample deck furniture including grill and 'porch swings are available. There is ample parking for as many cars as needed as well as a high double carport space for campers or motorhomes. From the deck, there are about ten steps to the large dock with a wide slip which will accommodate guest's 'trailered boat' or a boat rented from Trout Lodge Marina just 200 yards downstream. There is a public access boat-launch just 200 yards upstream from the residence. This quiet and beautiful setting is as good as it gets for a 'Trout Fishing Experience on famous Taneycomo. Of course just up the hill is The College of the Ozarks with their award winning upscale Keeter Center Restaurant. Just down the street across from Trout Lodge, is Gilberti's Italian and at the top of the hill you will find McDonalds, Country Mart Sonic, etc. The residence is about a mile down the hill from College of the Ozarks which is immediately at the Hollister exit. The 'Strip/76' exit is just 4 minutes away and The Landing' only 5 minutes away either by I-65 or the back way through downtown Hollister.

Slightly disappointed

  • 3 of 5

Scenery is beautiful, however there were a few small items that made our vacation less than we had hoped for.

The hot tub overlooking the river was not working and also looked like it needed a severe cleaning. There was no propane for the outdoor heater and the toilet leaked on the bathroom floor. Messages regarding the Wi-Fi password went unanswered which was disappointing for the children. We were refunded some of the expense for the hot tub not working which was appreciated.

Easily could have scored this higher if the details were addressed.

It was perfect for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! It was the perfect place for our extended family vacation. The 3 bedrooms in the main house plus the bungalow was the perfect size and plenty of room for the 8 of us (all adults). The kitchen is a little small, but well stocked with plates, cups, pots, pans, etc. we had chosen not to cook much besides breakfast so it worked great. The outside patio area is amazing and the view of the river is great, we loved spending time sitting out around the fire pit. It was so quiet and peaceful.

It’s a short (less than 15 minutes) drive to all the activities we did on the Strip, at Branson Landing and others around town.

We would definitely stay here again!!

Perfect cabin with gorgeous outdoor space

  • 5 of 5

The outdoor space is was absolutely gorgeous and had seating to accommodate a large number of people! The cabin was clean and well equipped for making meals throughout the weekend. Disappointed the hot tub didn't work but was minor compared to the overall experience! Gorgeous river to boat up and down! Very cold water and strong currents so be careful. We rented from the trout lodge up the river and it was an absolutely perfect day!

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room for everyone and lake access is great. Location to everything is great also. You are close enough if you want to go into to town but far enough out for privacy. Kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils and dishes. Back deck is awesome.

Nice Deck and view House not great!!

  • 2 of 5

Beautiful lake view and back decks. Fishing was bad, too much traffic on lake to fish and no swimming. Water pressure in main house was horrible, hot tub broken, bedrooms were stuffy even with air on. Lots of spiders and ants in the kitchen. Was large enough with comfortable sleeping for our crew of 10. Wifi did not work inside the house at all. Plenty of towels provided. House is overpriced due to many promised features not working.
