Overview

About the property

Country House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This location is ideal if you want easy access to Branson shows and shopping without the boxed-in feeling of a condo. This single-family home, built in 2005, is a two-level cottage in a neighborhood with plenty of trees, wildlife, and quiet. It has lots of decks and windows so you can enjoy the natural setting. And it’s convenient to all that Branson has to offer. Three miles to College of the Ozarks, three miles to State Park Marina, 5.6 miles to the Branson strip, and eleven miles to Branson Airport. All on roads well-isolated from traffic on the strip. The home is well lit, and well-furnished. It is maintained by the owner. Amenities include a queen-sized bed, two twin beds, gas fireplace, bubble-jet tub, separate shower, five TV's including a 42' plasma TV (including cable channels), and wireless Internet access. The kitchen is fully equipped. Windows, skylights, and French doors invite the outside in. With the master bedroom upstairs and a second bedroom on the lower level, the house is well suited for guests who want two separate living and sleeping areas with shared kitchen space.

Active families, perhaps including pets, should enjoy staying here. Due to the natural setting, the home is not suitable for people who cannot comfortably walk a few steps or uneven ground.   French doors from the upper-level living room and master bedroom open to the “morning deck” with a small table and seating for two. This deck faces east – perfect for enjoying the sunrise with morning coffee. It’s also a pleasant area to comfortably gaze at the stars before bedtime.  When the weather is right, you can see fog rising off the creek just beyond the trees backing the property.   Another set of French doors open from the upper-level dining room to a “tree house deck”. This south-facing deck offers relaxing, shaded outside dining for up to six people. Off the kitchen, a west-facing, covered, front porch provides a swing for two and seating for five around fire pots in the front yard. This area is mostly shaded with tall trees and old hanging grape vines – perfect for enjoying a cool breeze and glass of wine while dinner is cooking on the grill.  This area is the front yard, but traffic is very light, so you can relax quietly with only the sound of the water running through the old iron pump into the goldfish/lily pool or the breeze blowing through the tall pines across the road. The lower-level family room opens to a covered deck that’s perfect for a nap in the hammock. This deck is also ideal for enjoying a quiet visit while resting in one of the two rocking chairs.

The front yard is canopied with oaks, hanging grape vines, and a weeping willow tree. There are no sidewalks and the lawn is not manicured – the entries to the house include bridges, paths, and about 5 steps so bring your comfy walking shoes. The graveled parking area is entered by a short driveway. The parking area has enough space for an RV, but RV utility connections are not currently available. An Indian nutting stone, tomahawk, arrowheads and chips have been found around the back ridge, so keep your eyes open when you are out walking. If you bring your children, there is a private play set and tree swing out back.  If you have a pet, there are natural and wooded areas for walking.  

VRBO #639254, neighboring property, may be available if your dates are not available here.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property is very convenient to most all attractions in Branson and Hollister. It is a cozy home well appointed and very comfortable. It is a multilevel home with several balconies for great outdoor relaxing and dining. Will want to return again in the future.

Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Mixed reviews on this cabin

  • 4 of 5

1. Better directions would have made the beginning of our stay more enjoyable. If the owner had advised us to drive a half mile past the first street with the road name to a connecting street which would take us to the far end of the road where the cabin is located.....that would have sure helped us.

2. Access to the cabin (in the dark) from the parking area was hazardous, to say the least.

Even some solar markers on the parking area and up the steps would provide some much needed assistance.

3. Upper level deck off living room and bedroom had NO furniture. Sorry, but my opinion is....a deck with no furniture? Seriously? How does one enjoy the view early in the morning with a cup of coffee without a place to sit? That's one of the reasons we chose this cabin.....because it had decks to sit out on early in the morning, and in the evening before retiring.

4. Decorations and decor are absolutely gorgeous.....owner has spent a lot of time (and resources) to make this cabin a lovely and peaceful retreat.

5. Enjoyed using the fire pit to grill steak and roast marshmallows.

6. Kitchen was well-equipped with everything one could possibly need to cook a good meal.

Thanks to the owner, Elaine, for making this cabin available for a restful vacation.

Owner's Response: Good Morning *, Thank you for taking time to leave a review, I always appreciate the feedback and know tips are important to travelers. One note I am thinking you missed is on August 6th, after * emailed, I did include driving directions that I think you missed noticing. I've copied and pasted the old email below and separated sentences to make driving directions easier to see here. I wish there was a way I could tell map & GPS programs the correct directions to save people that miss this the trouble of turning around in a spot where it isn't easy to turn around. Again, thank you, I hope you had a good vacation and enjoyed town. It is always nice when fall weather arrives and the trees start to turn. Elaine
