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.

Easy 'no traffic' access to Branson and the Lakes
Easy access to Branson, peaceful country setting well-isolated from traffic of strip.
What a beautiful place you have! We have been many places and have to say this place is special. Love the chickens too. Your place is well stocked. Yes . . . . . we would come back :) God Bless Love the "non-smoking"
Just a short two night stay, but worked out wonderfully. Elaine went above and beyond having the home ready and welcoming for us. Went out of her way to have information on the places we were wanting to see laid out for us. It would take a page for me to write everything that we enjoyed about this home.
1. Close enough to town, but far enough to hear the whippoorwills late at night!
2. Very spacious!
3. The coolest shower I have ever seen! Oh, and the tub...dries itself!
To grow remarks:
1. The outside could be cleaned up a bit to discourage mosquitos. There were plenty of them!
2. The mattress in the main bedroom wasn't comfortable to us...but then we are very picky and sleep on a Tempur-Pedic. It may be just fine for others!
3. Smallest coffee maker does not work. (I guess we should have left it out with a note on it.)
We stay every spring and love it. Owners are very easy to work with. Like being away from the noise of the Branson strip.
