Real Log Home - Engleman Spruce - The Refuge at Tall Pines


Property Details

Updated: Feb 24, 2015
3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The Refuge at Tall Pines is built of huge 10-inch Engleman Spruce logs from Colorado. It has 3 great BRs in 2000 square feet of indoor living space. Various outdoor living areas include a screened-in sleeping porch, a covered porch, an open deck and a hot-tub deck. The main level features a large stone fireplace (gas log), huge custom windows, 2 bedrooms, bath, and a large country kitchen. Upstairs there is a cozy loft with great views of the surrounding forest, a large private master bedroom suite with separate shower and extra large tub. The lowest level is a comfortable movie room area with a premium entertainment system (7.1 digital surround sound) and the ever-popular foosball table. The family room also has a gas-log fireplace. Full laundry facilities are tucked away in the corner of the lowest level.

Tall Pines is a 40 acre wooded property with hiking trails and several other rental units. It is difficult to describe how beautiful this property really is. The photos just begin to tell the story. Tall Pines is truly a slice of Paradise on earth.

The Refuge is private and secluded. The other rentals on the property are easy walking distance but are hidden by the forest. See listing #54662 for 'The Sanctuary', listing #135116 for 'The Hiding Place', and listing #394764 for 'Woodsong Cottage'. If you are looking for something closer to Silver Dollar City, try out our partner: Woods Edge Cabin - 3 Bed, sleeps 6-8 listing #439091.

Tall Pines is a perfect place for family reunions. Up to 30 persons can stay in the four properties. You can celebrate together and each have your separate space.

Remarkable Stay at Tall Pines

  • of 5
We had a couple retreat at Tall pines and myself and 7 others spent 2 nights at The Refuge. The only negative/drawback that we experienced was that we couldn't stay longer. Our weekend at Tall Pines was incredibly relaxing and we are already planning our stay next year. The Refuge is gorgeous and was perfect for our group of 8. I highly recommend any of the homes at Tall Pines to anyone.

Perfect Thanksgiving at The Refuge

  • of 5
We love Tall Pines! This was our second visit. The tranquility of being in the woods and yet close to all the action can't be beat. Margie and Bruce have seen to all the details that made our stay a special memory, including telling us where we could order a turkey delivered to our cabin! We can't sing the praises of Tall Pines enough. Comfortable, affordable and luxurious in peace and views. It's the home we would have ourselves if we had a home in Missouri. We feel a special connection to nature and to our hosts by the love they have put into Tall Pines. We took the grands and the grown kids, the sister and her's, too. It was the best Thanksgiving ever! We'll be back. Again and again.

We just got home from our third visit to The Refuge at Tall Pines. We love this place because time just slows down here. It is a quiet, private & relaxing well kept cabin. This is a great place to consider if you want to take a weekend to get away from everything but at an economic price. The nightly rates are priced well & the owners run the whole operation very smoothly.

Tall Pines Vacation

  • of 5
We were so fortunate that someone our daughter in law knew told her about Tall Pines. As soon as we looked on the website we knew this was the place we wanted to live in for a few days. We have never rented a house before but this one is sooo worth it. You simply cannot believe how peaceful and quiet it is. At night sitting on the deck in front of a fire we could hear the owls and crickets and small rustlings in the leaves below...chipmunks and squirrels. The house is wonderfully decorated and we kept finding items we fell in love with. I am still trying to find those curtains online. haha
Branson is a mere 20 minutes away so if you are wanting to go downtown or elsewhere it's convenient and then you can retreat to "the refuge" and relax! You won't be disappointed for sure, in fact you will wish as we did we had a week more to just pretend it was our home!
Thanks Bruce and Margie for your vision, it is unbelievable.

Spent a long weekend at The Refuge for my fathers's 70th birthday. The place is even more beautiful than it appears on VRBO! Stop looking any farther & book this place.

The land is gorgeous! We have easy access to Table Rock Lake, one of the prettiest lakes you will ever see. Its a quick commute on good roads to our work in Branson. Minimal tourist traffic!

Activity and Interests

There is so much to do in the area, much more than just music shows, Eureka Springs 19th C. Victorian resort is 45 minutes away.

From the Owner

We enjoy the peaceful countryside away from the bustle of Branson. A large cattle ranch surrounds our property. Another one is just across the road. I love the cows! Almost every other Branson rental is tight up against a lot of other ones, cabins upon cabins and condos upon condos. Ours is not anything like that and we will keep it that way. We honor the beauty of the land. Enjoying nature is of paramount importance. Tall Pines is one of the best places we know for enjoying nature.
