About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 5 Baths (Sleeps 15-17)

The Bear Trail Lodge is not the 'bare' necessities! We have filled our place with the EXTRAS. So if you have the responsibility of finding the 'place for the family or group ...they will love you for finding the BEST.

It is a special place for our family to share and enjoy time together and wonderful things to do. It is designed for all ages to be able to come together but enough space to not be squished together!


I have happy childhood memories of vacationing with my Grandparents in Branson. We built Bear Trail Lodge to share it with you and our family gets to enjoy and make memories there also.

Bear Trail Lodge is located in the Branson Canyon development just off Hwy 65. It is only minutes away from Table Rock Lake with boating and fishing, the Top of the Rock, just minutes from all the exciting energy of the Branson Strip and Branson Landing.

Bear Trail Lodge was professionally decorated and tastefully depicts a mountain lodge. It has three levels with the main floor and entrance being at street level. Extra parking area just across from home.

Main level is an open floor plan and vaulted ceilings with fully equipped Kitchen, large Dining Area, and Living Room with jfireplace. The upper Deck has a gas grill and offers a beautiful view of the vast natural wooded area with bird feeder. Also on main level is one of the Master Bedroom Suites with luxury Bath, and a second King Bedroom with full Bath.

The lower (first) level, or walk-out basement with lots of window, includes the second Master Bedroom Suite and huge Bath, another King Bedroom and Bath, a Utility Room with large capacity washer and dryer, and an unusually spacious Den/Game Room. This room provides an abundance of comfortable seating and is equipped with almost every entertainment amenity you can imagine. It opens onto the lower Deck which is only a few steps leading to the Branson Canyon Nature Trail and a shortcut trail to the Swimming Pool, Clubhouse and Playground.

The upper (third) level houses one King Bedroom, one Bunkhouse with two sets of bunkbeds, one full Bath, and the Li’l Cowpokes Hideaway, a small play area for children. All the Bedrooms are furnished with thick, comfy mattresses, luxurious linens and equipped with flat screen TV’s and DVD players.

Every suite is designed with thought and personality and it's own name -- Mama Bear’s Retreat, the Birdhouse, the Rawhide, the Hacienda, the Hunting and Fishing, and the Bear Camp Bunkhouse. Come choose where you want to lay your head. Not too big. Not too little. But just right.

All guests also have access to the beautiful neighborhood Swimming Pool (May through September) and the Community Club House which is open all year. The Clubhouse provides a Pool Table, Media Room, and Exercise Room. It can also be reserved for special group gatherings. Commercial quality Playground by clubhouse and a Basketball court.

We feel our home is a excellent choice for your family or multigenerational gathering!

The Bear Trail Lodge is Beary Special.....

My family really enjoyed our stay here. The kids enjoyed the pool and the walking trail. Very nice neighborhood. The home is very comfortable and relaxing. Would definitely love to go back.

Owner's Response: We would love to have your family back too! It was nice you were able to get everyone together booking last minute and glad we had the time open! I love to hear families enjoying the home, trails, and our neighborhood. There is a lot to do besides the Strip, Music Shows and shopping. Even though those are fun and close too. Thanks for the review.

Fantastic & Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

This home is wonderful! We loved it and will always rent from Karin, the homeowner. She went above and beyond to welcome us and make sure our 4 day stay was special for our daughters wedding. This is the best stocked VRBO I've ever stayed in. The decor is a designer's delight. It looks amazing and is extremely convenient and spacious. This property is amazing!! Very clean, great linens, amenities, neighborhood very convenient to Big Cedar, State Park Marine, and golf. The best part is it's away from heavy traffic. We will return!! Thank you!!

Just downright awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Just checked out this morning after an awesome week long stay at this property! We had a family reunion with members coming from Plainfield, IL, Hiawatha, IA, Maryville, IL, East Moline, IL, Mtn. View, AR and Stillwater, OK! Ages were 70 down to 15 months! We did something fun everyday! Monday was the Branson Scenic Railway, Tuesday was Silver Dollar City, Wednesday was Ride the Ducks, Thursday we did The Track, Friday was Dixie Stampede! Throw in a night at the Landing for the Fire and Water Show and swimming in the pool almost everyday! And almost every evening when our littles went to bed, we had game time!

The house was amazing and seriously the only thing you need to bring is your food and clothes! If it's not in this house, you don't need it! We were fortunate enough to meet the owner and what a sweet, inviting lady!

The hardest part was trying to get all packed up and out on time this morning, but we made it! I cried when I made the call that we were leaving....I didn't want it to end.

Thank you Karen and Jennifer for letting us make your home all ours for the past week. Memories that are priceless. Time with family priceless. Until we do it again....❤️

What a great home for a Branson multi-generational vacation stay!

  • 5 of 5

3300 square feet of home away from home comfort! We stayed in the summer during midwest heat and were very pleased to find cooling comfort on all floors of the house. Everything was well maintained and clean. Thank you! We will share with our friends!
