Tall Pines Sanctuary - Country Estate Home in a 40 Acre Forest

Tall Pines Sanctuary - Country Estate Home in a 40 Acre Forest


Property Details

Updated: May 17, 2015
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8 (Add. 2 bedroom detached unit available)

Branson Vacation Home Rental:

Tall Pines Sanctuary is a beautiful and unusual home that blends perfectly with its natural surroundings. It is not condo! Its setting is the center of 40 wooded acres with a stand of huge pines surrounding the home. It is perfect for those desiring a peaceful get-away but still interested in enjoying the many Branson attractions. The house has exquisite appointments such as hand-laid stone, stained wood, art glass, waterfalls, solarium and more. We are also pet friendly.

This home sleeps up to 8 people quite comfortably. There are several separate additional homes available for rental on the property that will allow up to 30 people to stay in one location. Please contact us regarding large parties and family reunions staying at Tall Pines.

Tall Pines property is situated at what the locals call the 'quiet' side of the lake. Just south of Branson, we are located off UU on the Long Creek arm of Table Rock Lake. Access for boating and swimming is less than a mile away. We are just eight minutes from Big Cedar Lodge and 20 minutes from Branson's Country Music Boulevard. Four outstanding golf courses are less than fifteen minutes away. Branson's new airport (open May 2009) is also about 20 minutes away. Folks who stay here are amazed at the beauty. They often say 'the pictures don't do it justice!' Stay with us. If you do your whole party will be amazed at how smart and savvy you are for finding such a great place.

Staying at the Sanctuary is a holiday all its own. The house features hand-laid stone walls, and two waterfalls that run along the side of the house. The deck is huge with a sunken hot tub; it is surrounded by a canopy of 75 foot tall native pines. The glass solarium looks out across Persimmon Hollow. There are three bedrooms. The upper level has two bedrooms. The first has a King Canopy bed, the second has a Queen bed, the third is the 3-room Master Suite with a King-size bed and a pullout sofa. Both Kings have new mattresses (May, 2010) Blankets, pillows, linens, and towels will be provided. Many other amenities such as indoor and outdoor surround sound and home theater systems await you.

New in March 2012, 'Woodsong Cottage' (listing #394764) was released for rental. In 2010, we remodeled 'The Hiding Place' (listing #135116) a 2 BR/2BA single level home that sleeps up to 6. In June of 2008 'The Refuge' 3 BR/2BA log home (listing #171960) became available. Please contact us for more information on staying at Tall Pines. 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.

It is our desire that as people stay at the Sanctuary, they experience the tranquility of the Ozarks and leave with a renewed heart.

* Please note that it is important that both the property and the wildlife be respected. There is no hunting at any time... hence the name, The Sanctuary. We recommend this property for families and senior citizens. Our maximum occupancy limit in the sanctuary is 8 persons, no exceptions. If you have more than 8 please consider renting the 'The Hiding Place' (6 people) or 'The Refuge,' (8 people) each easy walking distance to The Sanctuary.

My significant other and I stayed at the sanctuary for what we hoped would be a relaxing weekend. A relaxing weekend is exactly what we got!!! The property is beautiful and is no different than a cabin you might stay in on the rookies. The scenery was beautiful and the accommodations were perfect. Our favorite part was hanging out amongst the pines in our private hot tub and not having a care in the world. If you want a relaxing getaway for a great place, don't hesitate to stay here!!!

All of us totally enjoyed our stay at Tall Pines. The property is just beautiful...inside and out. The amenities were perfect and we had some very much needed relaxing and memory making times. We would recommend this property and certainly want to come back in the future.

What a beautiful home tucked away in the woods. I was hoping it would be a nice as it appeared in the pictures and it was even more. The home was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Great attention to detail throughout the home. The ivy and stonework was great. Lots of character. The bedrooms were very pretty and the beds were comfortable. All of the furniture was very comfortable. Our grandson enjoyed playing pool outside and we all enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub. The name of the house, Sanctuary says it all. Would highly recommend it and the owners were accommodating and friendly. Thanks for a great stay!

Wonderful place for a weekend getaway

Everything was just as described and more. The location and property was beautiful. The houses (we had Sanctuary, Hiding Place and Woodsong) were so nice and in good repair. Our group really enjoyed the hot tubs and pool tables. The perfect weather that weekend made it all even more special. Thank you for a wonderful setting to celebrate my milestone birthday. We hope to stay again in the future.

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.
