About Jen Ipsen

We live in Kansas City but are both small town people. I grew up in small town Iowa, my husband in small town Kansas. We both have worked in hotels for over 15 years.

Jen Ipsen purchased this condo in 2013

Why Jen Ipsen chose Notch Estates

We purchased our condo because we love the outdoor activities in the area. We enjoy spending time at Table Rock Lake, hiking at Henning Conversation area, canoeing on the area rivers, and relaxing by the pool. We chose to purchase at Notch because the grounds and units are so well maintained, and also because we like being away from the hustle and bustle of Branson, which is just ten minutes away. Branson West has a lovely small town feel and everyone is very welcoming and friendly. My parents live 20 minutes from our condo and they manage it.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is a top floor corner unit and we loved the vaulted ceilings only available on the top floors. Our deck has amazing mountain views and because we're on the corner we can look out two sides of the deck. We also selected our unit because it needed a bit of updating and we love to remodel. We got rid of the popcorn texture, installed new carpet in the bedrooms, new flooring in the bathrooms, all new light fixtures, new modern faucets, hardware on the cabinets and the entire unit got fresh paint.

Great stay, minutes away!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time at J & J’s. It was a very short drive to Sliver Dollar City! The only thing I would say was not up to par is the hot water heater. It was just my wife and I and staying at the condo. There was barely enough hot water for 1 shower, her shower finished with luke warm water. Not sure how well it would keep up with 4+ adults, with two showers/bathrooms. That being said, I would absolutely stay there again!

Owner's Response: Hi Alex, Thanks so much for the feedback! So glad you enjoyed your stay. We will definitely look into the hot water heater, that's the first time we've heard that since we started renting our place a few years ago. Might be time for a new water heater! Have a happy 2018! :) Jen

Perfect for visiting Silver Dollar City and Branson

  • 5 of 5

This condo was a hit! We traveled to Branson to take our daughter and our 18 month old Grandson to see the lights and do some shopping. We wanted a condo instead of a hotel so our little guy would have a separate bedroom and bathroom with his Mom and some room to play. Jen the owner was wonderful to work with on booking and even had home baked cookies there for us when we arrived! The condo was very clean and neat with a modern feel. It was perfect for us! Nice size bedrooms so we could set up our pack n play and still walk around. Big deck off the back with a nice view. We very much enjoyed our stay in the area and the value of this condo was great! We will definitely stay there again when we go back. Really perfect location for visiting Silver Dollar City and quick and easy to get to Branson.

This was a great place to stay. We spent 3 nights. It is 1 mile away from Silver Dollar City. It was much better than staying in a hotel room. The owner made some homemade treats and left them out for us. It was a tasty pleasant surprise. Rooms were clean, bedding was clean. I would recommend this place to all my family and friends and I would definitely stay there again.

Very nice condo with great view!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very nice and it felt like we were at home. My children ages 9 & 5 really enjoyed it because there were plenty of toys and games for them. It was equipped with all the kitchen utensils and bathroom toiletries that we needed. The view was beautiful from the deck, the picture doesn't do it justice! The decor was really cute and the beds were comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.
