Guestbook comments from the owner

Ray and Mariea,

I wanted to take a moment and thank you both for sharing your wonderful home with us. It was PERFECT for what we needed. We were able to let the children sleep upstairs and the adults downstairs. The kids were so happy to see their friends, we hardly heard from them except at meal times. The guys grilled and sat on the deck, while the women sat at the island doing the other prep work. (My only regret was staying up to late playing cards.) It was an excellent time of fellowship with friends.

We also enjoyed sitting at the pool. It did get a little crowed at time, but the convenience of location just made it easy to leave and return later. The cottage is also located so close to HWY 65 that it was easy for us to run to the store or anywhere else we wanted to go without fighting the "in town" traffic usually associated with Branson.

We look forward to visiting The Cottage again in the future and I know that our friends do also. Thank you for your hospitality.

Had everything you would ever need. Kitchen was clean and dishes/glasses/pots were plentiful. Washer/Dryer combo was large and worked great. Master Bedroom is the pick-of-the-litter... roomy and quiet. Front Bedroom offers best view and a massive closet. Upper bedroom over master is large and 'kids room' over the front bedroom is perfect for up to 4 kids. Nice TVs in all rooms.

Club House is just up Foggy Bay. Pool has a zero entry that gets up to 6 ft. Plenty of lounge chairs for all. Door by pool gets you in Club House bottom floor with bathroom and pool table. Main level has two more restrooms and a kitchen area if you need it. Top floor is large pit group and TV. We never were able to get anything on the TV, but that was most likely 'user error'.

If you drive down just a bit further on Hwy P you get to the lake. There is a large play area with shore fishing access. Play area has tennis, basketball, and volleyball courts. It also has a playground fort for the kids.

When they suggest to buy your groceries at the Country Mart... do it. This is not a mart in the country - it is the name of the grocery chain. It is large and prices are better than WalMart in Branson.

Branson.... oh my.... don't get me started. Give yourself lots of time to navigate 'Main Street' Hwy 76. Very curvy and hilly. Lights-o-plenty. Two lanes with a center turn lane the whole way. Rush hour traffic 24 hrs a day. Use 265 / 165 to circle around over the dam and pop out on 76 closest to where you are needing to go. DO NOT drive the length of 76... your blood pressure would be too high to enjoy whatever you are there wanting to do.

Silver Dollar City was clean and lots of fun. Get there around 9:00 so you can enter the park at 9:30 after they raise the flag. Grab a locker or two between the 9:00-9:30 time frame. Nice set of them just outside the caverns. Place your food/drink/supplies in the locker and go back to it and get what you need as you need it. Costs 50 cents every time you open the door. At 9:30 head to whatever ride you want to do the most. You can ride it several times in a row the first hour or so. Lines began to back up around 10:30 with those arriving at the parking lots at 9:30 and then walking into the park. Meal prices are reduced at 7:00 pm if you stay the whole day. Burgers were quite fresh and tasty.

You will be doing yourself a favor by staying at "The Cottage" !!!

Awesome House and Owners

  • 5 of 5
My family greatly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful vacation home and everything exceeded my wildest expectations. The home is beautiful, comfortable and has everything you need and is convenient to the city of Branson. It is such a great house for a big family like ours. Very clean and we had plenty of room for all the kids to play. The pool was so close and worked out great for everyone. Also, the owners are really nice people and easy to work with, answered all of our questions and gave friendly advice. I would definitely recommend this property to all of our friends and we look forward to getting back together there again soon!

Wow! This place was fantastic! We often vacation in Branson and have stayed in MANY different condos all around the area. This home was the best place we have stayed! The house is absolutely beautiful! The decorations are very homey and tasteful. The kids loved staying in the snowman room! There was the perfect amount of space for our group. We had 4 adults and 3 kids for part of the week and 4 adults with 5 kids for the rest of it. They offer so many "extras" that most places we have stayed have not offered. We never ran out of dishsoap or paper towels and even laundry soap was available to use! The pool is right up the street, which was very handy! There was supposed to be a playgound in the area, but we never did find it. The owners were fantastic to work with! They even called us when they saw the weather wasn't ideal while we were there to tell us of a shelter under the house! Thanks so much for letting us stay!

The Cottage

  • 5 of 5
I would like to say that my family stayed in the cottage for 5 nights and it was the best family vacation that we have ever had. The house was perfect. There were 6 adults and 4 children ages 4 to 10. This is the first time that we have ever rented a house and this house was beautiful and had all the comforts of home. Ray and Mariea were helpful when it came to renting their home. They helped me in many ways. They made all the arrangements very easy. I would highly recommend the cottage. Everything was clean and well taken care of. I can honestly say that when and if we make it back to Branson we will stay at the cottage if it is available. So for everyone that is looking for a house to rent I would say that I give this house and the owners a big GOLD STAR!!!!!

Best Holiday Ever

  • 5 of 5
This house, like the owners, exceeded our expectations. We had some issues in the start back home that nearly cost us our vacation, and the home owners were fabulous in keeping contact and working with us.

Once we were actually on the road and arrived, the house was decorated in a Christmas theme, which made all our worries go away! The home was comfortable, warm and updated. The beds were awesome and more than enough room for us three adults and three kids. Having the ability to fly the American Flag was an added token offered to military vets by the homeowners. We will definitely rent here again.

This is not strike to the owners because I do not know the POA rules, but when we arrived, the house was well lighted, but the cul-de-sac was very dark making it difficult but not impossible to find the house. BEAUTIFUL HOUSE !!!

Home away from Home

It was very late once we arrived at the Cottage, and I had to make some call to the owner (which was late and I hated to) but the stay was great! The pool was fun, the house was just the right size. We liked the secludedness that the Cottage offered. We still had neightbors, but it wasn't on the strip. A great place for relaxing.
Thanks again Ray & Mariea!
