About Marie

Our parents, Lois and Dwane Gaar, along with our grandparents sold their businesses in California and moved to the Ozarks in 1981, purchasing what is now known as Triple G Ranch. We children, Dwanette and Doug, love the ranch which was intended to be our heritage and our children's heritage. As we, Dwanette and Doug, grew into adults and began having our own families, we each built a home on the Ranch. In 2006, our beloved mom pased from life leaving her ownings to her two children and eleven grandchildren. We are the Gaar family consisting of Dwanette and hubby, Willis Moore and our eight children - Chelsie (married to Jesse), Amber (married to Jared), Ben, Ethan (getting married in 2013), Faith, Grant, Jillian, and Kristina; and Doug and wife, Lee Gaar, with children - Cody, Morgan, and Rachel. We are homeschooling families and have raised our children with Christian morals and a strong work ethic. We love our slice of the Ozarks and treasure being together as a family, enjoying outdoor activities such as horseback riding, hunting, crawdad hunting, and playing in the creek. Our children love the Ranch as much as we do, and excitedly await the day when they marry, begin to have their own families and build their own homes on the ranch.

Marie purchased this house in 2006

Why Marie chose Missouri

Mom, Lois, always had a heart for people. Her home was open to many for ministry. She loved life and lived it largely. She was a visionary herself, but she always loved encouraging others to fulfill their God-given visions. Mom, Lois, was most happy when her home was filled to the brim with people. She treasured her grandchildren and loved having them so close by that they were in and out of her house several times each day. She loved to pamper people in her home. We have so many wonderful memories of Sunday dinners and celebrations as a large family together in her home. So when she passed, we wanted to continue her Legacy. We enjoy providing respite and the opportunity for other friends and families to make precious memories and enjoy this beautiful part of the country. And we still have the opportunity to gather at 'mom's' house for special family celebrations.

What makes this house unique

While we are close enough for our guests to avail themselves of all the Branson activities and attractions, the Legacy has its own captivating features. Parents and grandparents get a 'cool' rating with teenagers when they display their billiards or foos ball skills! The home is big enough on each level to gather for meals or conversation as well has having enough rooms and nooks to get away when they choose. Some of our guests have never been to the country and are amazed by our wonderful hills, bluffs, pastures, and year round creek. Wildlife abounds here in the Ozarks, and you may see deer, wild turkey, and even a black bear. The ranch land is peaceful and lends itself to pleasant walks, a slower pace if desired, and many areas for calming reflection.

Spring break

  • 5 of 5

Fun, fun,fun!! Spring break 2016 was amazing. The house, the games, the walks and the weather were perfect. A family of 6 can enjoy the upstairs half with great comfort, cook and feel right at home!

We will be back and there were NO complaints, except wanting more time to enjoy all the triple G has to offer.

Owner's Response: We are tickled that our weather was cooperative for your Spring Break getaway at the Legacy on Triple G Ranch. But the Legacy is stocked if the weather is not as cooperative your getaway can still be fun, fun, fun! Foos ball, chess, billiards, hot tub, board games, large screen TV, and on. The amenities are perfect for families with children but also that adult getaway away from the kids! The main level only is 3000 square feet, plenty of room for 2 to 12 people. Thank you for a wonderful review and we hope to host your lovely family again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a lovely review. The Legacy is classic and luxurious and appeals to old and young alike so you can feel comfortable bringing grandma and grandpa and the kids. Our kitchen is large with custom pecan cabinetry and the bar stools and the open floor plan help the women to be included in all the socializing. Men can't resist the pool table and foos ball and everyone loves the hot tub. We hope you, your parents and your children took home wonderful memories to cherish of your time together.

30th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at the Legacy home and I have to say it was such a beautiful home and the hosts welcomed us and made our stay very comfortable. I loved this home and the land it is on, one of the most comfortable and beautiful places I have ever stayed. We travel a lot and Branson is one of my favorite places to go. I will be coming back to the Legacy with my whole family and would recommend it to anyone and everyone. Thank you so much for such a great getaway for our anniversary.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you had a wonderful Anniversary at the Legacy. The Legacy is a large home and most of our guests are large families, but it can be rented by one level only to make it economical for a romantic getaway. And with all the amenities including private hot tub, Jacuzzi, pool table and vast library of books and DVD's you never have to leave the relaxing atmosphere. We look forward to hosting your entire family next time.

Mother's 80th Birthday

  • 5 of 5

The size and comfort of this home made it a perfect place for my siblings and parents to gather from across the country and celebrate Mom 's 80th birthday. There was space for us to all be together or spread out a little. We were able to prepare wonderful meals in the kitchen and on the grill. And with the game tables, jacuzzi, sauna, TVs, campfire, and trails there was always something to do. I left there feeling renewed and reconnected with my family. It was truly a blessing!

Owner's Response: Our main desire and purpose of the Legacy is for families to be able to reconnect and enjoy all facets of luxury, family, life, and fun together under one roof. It is perfect for life celebrations such as anniversaries, birthdays and milestone birthdays. We are so pleased you and your siblings and mom enjoyed that family reconnection and had a wonderful time.

The legacy is located 13 miles from branson missouri with all it's theaters, attractions, and water activities. It is close enough to avail yourself of all the attractions, yet far enough to retreat to your own retreat escape under the stars. The legacy is located on the 460+ acres of triple g ranch, our working family ranch. It is also 30 minutes south of springfield and has easy access to silver dollar city via the highroad. It is close to world class golf courses, the best bass and trout fishing in the united states, a variety of hiking trails, and outlet malls.

Triple g ranch features panoramic views, secluded meadows, broad pastures, and expansive hardwood forests. Wildlife is plentiful with numerous wild turkey and whitetail deer and recent bear sitings. Meandering through the ranch you will find beautiful bull creek known as the clearest creek in missouri. Not merely a trickle, bull creek flows year-round accommodating canoeing and boasting trout in the spring. Explorers will delight in discovering scenic cliff overlooks and little hidden waterfalls. The historic harrison to springfield stagecoach road also passes through the property. Still standing is one of the homesteads that flourished on this land many years ago.
