Home in a Natural Setting Convenient to Branson & Lakes


Property Details

Updated: Oct 20, 2016
Country House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This location is ideal if you want easy access to Branson shows and shopping without the boxed-in feeling of a condo. This single-family home, built in 2005, is a two-level cottage in a neighborhood with plenty of trees, wildlife, and quiet. It has lots of decks and windows so you can enjoy the natural setting. And it’s convenient to all that Branson has to offer. Three miles to College of the Ozarks, three miles to State Park Marina, 5.6 miles to the Branson strip, and eleven miles to Branson Airport. All on roads well-isolated from traffic on the strip. The home is well lit, and well-furnished. It is maintained by the owner. Amenities include a queen-sized bed, two twin beds, gas fireplace, bubble-jet tub, separate shower, five TV's including a 42' plasma TV (including cable channels), and wireless Internet access. The kitchen is fully equipped. Windows, skylights, and French doors invite the outside in. With the master bedroom upstairs and a second bedroom on the lower level, the house is well suited for guests who want two separate living and sleeping areas with shared kitchen space.

Active families, perhaps including pets, should enjoy staying here. Due to the natural setting, the home is not suitable for people who cannot comfortably walk a few steps or uneven ground.   French doors from the upper-level living room and master bedroom open to the “morning deck” with a small table and seating for two. This deck faces east – perfect for enjoying the sunrise with morning coffee. It’s also a pleasant area to comfortably gaze at the stars before bedtime.  When the weather is right, you can see fog rising off the creek just beyond the trees backing the property.   Another set of French doors open from the upper-level dining room to a “tree house deck”. This south-facing deck offers relaxing, shaded outside dining for up to six people. Off the kitchen, a west-facing, covered, front porch provides a swing for two and seating for five around fire pots in the front yard. This area is mostly shaded with tall trees and old hanging grape vines – perfect for enjoying a cool breeze and glass of wine while dinner is cooking on the grill.  This area is the front yard, but traffic is very light, so you can relax quietly with only the sound of the water running through the old iron pump into the goldfish/lily pool or the breeze blowing through the tall pines across the road. The lower-level family room opens to a covered deck that’s perfect for a nap in the hammock. This deck is also ideal for enjoying a quiet visit while resting in one of the two rocking chairs.

The front yard is canopied with oaks, hanging grape vines, and a weeping willow tree. There are no sidewalks and the lawn is not manicured – the entries to the house include bridges, paths, and about 5 steps so bring your comfy walking shoes. The graveled parking area is entered by a short driveway. The parking area has enough space for an RV, but RV utility connections are not currently available. An Indian nutting stone, tomahawk, arrowheads and chips have been found around the back ridge, so keep your eyes open when you are out walking. If you bring your children, there is a private play set and tree swing out back.  If you have a pet, there are natural and wooded areas for walking.  

VRBO #639254, neighboring property, may be available if your dates are not available here.

Very Relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home!!! Has a well stocked kitchen with everything you need. Close to Branson and all the activities, but tucked in a quite wooded neighborhood. We really appreciated Elaine letting us bring our two dogs. Looking forward to staying here again in the future!!

Lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

My parents and I had a lovely week in Branson and enjoyed our stay at the home. It was away from the bustle of Branson but not too far away. The home had everything we needed. Really appreciated the fact that I could bring my dogs along.

Elaine was extremely quick with replies to questions, friendly and helpful.

Would definitely recommend a stay here.

Great little home to stay in on vacation !!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I enjoyed our stay here for our annual sisters weekend! It was very cost and fit our needs perfectly! There was plenty of room, the kitchen was well stocked and it is a beautiful setting!

The driveway is quite a steep one, so an all wheel vehicle would be helpful, but since we didn't have one, we found adequate parking on a grassy spot at the top of the drive!

I would recommend staying here! It is very quiet and quaint!

Scenic and homey

  • 4 of 5

The home was very spacious and beautifully decorated. It accommodated our needs very well. We felt that it was just as it was represented in the information online. We had a couple of issues -- loss of internet service that took just over a day to get back, and we couldn't get the DVD player to operate. Neither was a major issue -- they just resulted in a change of our plans so we were disappointed. But the scenic drive that leads to the property and the generous outdoor seating with 3 decks and a front porch combine are definite pluses. Lots of brochures for activities nearby. A pleasant place to stay.

Outstanding - Very nice home

We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. It was located close to Branson, yet in a very quiet and secluded area nestled in the trees.
