About the property

House, 2 BR/2 BA + Sofabed (Sleeps 5), Lakeview, Trail to Shore, Private Home

Tall Tree Retreat is a contemporary rustic, secluded 1200 sq ft lakeside private home right on Tablerock Lake. This home has a short 150 ft. walk to the shoreline on a beautiful nature trail. It also offers phenomenal panoramic lake views of Table Rock Lake. The Retreat is on a private peninsula-like area of the lake (see aerial photos). This is NOT a condo or a 'cabin', with other rental units right on top of each other! You are truly in a secluded setting with a private road leading into our own wooded lakefront area. However, Branson is only 20 minutes away and Eureka Springs is only a short 45 minute drive.

If you are looking for peace and quiet from the hustle and bustle of Branson or a great place to fish, swim or relax, this is the place for you! Have a picnic on the picnic table on the secluded lake shore or sit on your own private deck off the upstairs suite. Roast s'mores in the fire circle next to the water and watch the Branson Belle pass by every day!

This home comfortably sleeps 5 (6 if a child) people with two queen beds, and a queen pullout sofa bed. Both bedrooms have private bathrooms, with either a large soaking tub (downstairs) or a large jet tub(upstairs).

New furnishings, earth tone colors, rustic decor and huge windows throughout make for a comfortable and serene setting among the trees. Quality beds and linens set this home apart from many other rentals or hotels.

Bass Pro's Creekside Marina is only 5 minutes away by boat or car, where you can rent a boat, slip or gas up. The State Park Marina is just across the lake by boat. Or, bring your own boat and use the Old 86 Campground access approximately one mile away, literally across the cove from us. You can also tie-up outside the property or swim and fish in the quiet cove. It is then a short walk on the trail to come back to your home whenever you need!

Wonderful restaurants and shopping are within a few minutes drive. Branson Landing is approximately 20 minutes away. An excellent day trip is Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Dogwood Canyon is our favorite getaway for those looking for more of an outdoor experience. Silver Dollar City/White Water and all the shows you can imagine are nearby....but you don't have to deal with the traffic and crowds!

Tall Tree Retreat is a place you will want to come home to while enjoying a vacation in the Branson area.

About Derek or Jennifer Patterson

We built both properties, Tall Tree Cottage and Retreat in 2007 and 2008, with particular attention to detail and amenities. Unlike many vacation properties on the market, we take exceptional care of these properties and ensure they are 'resort clean' upon arrival of our guests. Be sure to check out our many guestbook comments throughout the years.

Derek or Jennifer Patterson purchased this house in 2008

Why Derek or Jennifer Patterson chose Missouri

Great secluded area and private shoreline, yet close to all the things to do in Branson! Enjoy the hot tub on the deck overlooking the lake or roast s'mores on the shoreline!

What makes this house unique

Nature walks on our trail to the lake, fire ring and bench picnic table to roast s'mores, large front yard to play in, large lake front area to boat, fish, swim and only 20 minutes from the Branson 76 Strip and all the entertainment and attractions you need.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our children rented Tall Tree Cottage as a gift for my husband and I. Our 50th anniversary was in July and we didn't get a chance to celebrate it with them so our families drove from St. Louis and Lindsay, Ok to be together. It was the perfect place here at the Cottage. We had such a good time! We were delighted with this Cottage and there were many things to do here and in Branson. The cottage itself is so nicely decorated and was the perfect size. We enjoyed a show in Branson on Tuesday, shopped and came home to explore our surroundings. The lake front created a quiet and peaceful place to enjoy a fire and hiking. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful place and home. We will truly try to come back again!

Quiet, romantic, beautiful house near lots of fun attractions.

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Tall Tree Retreat. We visited the outlet mall in Branson, explored Eureka Springs and hiked around the lake. The hot tub under the stars was an amazing experience. The last day six deer joined us for morning coffee. The young ones were literally kicking up their hooves. The house is in a very quiet cove and the deck has a beautiful view. The lake side area is very pretty but bring some sturdy shoes to handle the rocks and the hike back up the hill to the house. Lovely house and a wonderful, relaxing trip.

Loved..loved...loved it here!

  • 4 of 5

The house was lovely. We enjoyed the views from the deck and even saw 3 young deer in the yard one morning. The walk to the lake was nice but a bit rocky in places...wear water shoes the rocks there are chairs provided by the lake and we sat with our feet in the water and just enjoyed the lake. I would love to come back and bring our daughter and her family. We loved this house and it's private location.

Secluded relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This home is exactly what we hoped for. The location was private and we found the home clean and accommodating. The lake front area was very nice and we spent much of our time there. We enjoyed fishing, swimming, and even hiked up the hillside. Communicated directly with the owners and they were very attentive to all our needs.

Lovely Secluded Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful and relaxing stay at the lovely Tall Tree Retreat.

The property was immaculate upon our arrival and furnished with everything we needed (and more). It proved to be just what we were looking for; quiet seclusion, but with easy access to a lot of activities and entertainment.

Best thing was the hot tub, was great to sit outside and take in the view. Saw 5 deer in the front yard the second night there! I would definitely recommend driving an SUV to get there as the gravel road is in bad shape.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the Retreat. Yes, the deer and turkey seem to love hanging out in the front yard most mornings. If you watch closely, we have a pair of eagles that frequent the woods around the house! As far as the gravel road, it isn't necessary to have an SUV unless you plan on trying to pull a boat out of the neighborhood as there is a hilly area in the next subdivision over that is rough from recent flooding (and we have no control over their road unfortunately!). Our road leading to our houses has recently been repaired and although you can't drive fast by any means, it is totally navigable by any car (father-in-law drives a Prius on it daily).

Our homes are located in a quiet, wooded and secluded area of Tablerock Lake. Every visitor can expect to see many types of wildlife around the home....turkey, deer, eagles, and fox for example! When visiting, one of our favorite things to do is pack a picnic lunch and our bikes and go to Dogwood Canyon (they have bikes available for rental as well). Needless to say, Silver Dollar City is a must-see during the Christmas season. Other than that, we just enjoy being on the water (Bass Pro Marina is 5 minutes away) and building a fire every night for s'mores and hot dogs!
