Perfect stay at Thomas Trail

  • 5 of 5

Lovely peaceful property. Very roomy, clean, and well equipped. The view from the screened porch overlooking the river was perfect for coffee in the morning and wine at sunset! The listing on HomeAway was completely accurate. Although there were only six of us staying on this property (4 adults and 2 dogs!!), it would easily accommodate 10--and maybe more. Easy drive from downtown Branson and shopping, but once we were back on Thomas Trail, it was like a stay on a deserted island! We would definitely return if we travel back to this area. BTW, even though the caretakers live on property, we never once saw or heard them, except when we had a question and they promptly answered our email inquiry.

This is why I choose VRBO for my family vacations!

  • 5 of 5

We never had the pleasure of staying at Thomas Trail, however I wanted to share my personal experience for those of you thinking about staying here. My niece was scheduled to perform at a music festival with her school choir last summer. Unfortunately, their group's director had to cancel only months prior to the event at SDC. I have used VRBO for several years now and would never go back to vacationing in hotels. If you are thinking about staying at this property, I just wanted you to know how truly wonderful it was to have the opportunity to work with Celia. When I notified her of the trip cancellation; she was an absolute professional and tried her best to accommodate our needs in every way possible. Owners such as Celia are the reason why I continue to use VRBO and why my son and I have chosen to visit Branson, MO this Spring 2017. Thank you for everything, Celia!! If we are ever in Branson, MO with the whole family again; we will let you know first! :) The George Family - Dallas, TX

Me and my family of 11 stayed in this home and everything was amazing. Very roomy and spacious. I will definitely visit again. I have recommended this home to several people. The owners where very professional and great with communicating as well.

Very nice property, excellent for large families

  • 4 of 5

We had 6 adults, 3 kids, 1 baby and one puppy dog staying. The rooms were all nice. The house was very lovely. We enjoyed the movie theater and the foosball table. The kids loved the toys and books. My book-loving mother loved the wide selection of reading material. We were grateful for the washer and dryer since my son wound up not packing enough jeans and we had to wash some. The kitchen was well appointed and the cabinets labeled which was really nice. We didn’t need for anything.

The drive from Branson to the house was not far. There was a dollar general pretty close as well. We liked that they had a red box. We ordered from the local pizza place and were grateful that they offered delivery.

The outside was fairly ok. It could have stood to be mowed. We did get to see lots of deer playing in the yard when we came in Saturday evening and the kids loved that.

Call thing property lake-front is a bit of a stretch. There is a path to the lake. It is very steep and graveled. It leads to very steep stairs that take you to a pretty pitiful part of the lake. It was overgrown, had a large piece of Styrofoam, Like 4 foot long, 2 foot wide and 2 foot thick, just kind of half floating half on the land. It was impossible to fish from there as the grass around the lake has not been maintained. Swimming was also impossible due to the messiness of the water in general and that the land surrounding the area was so grown up. My kids were very disappointed.

All in all, it was a good vacation. The house is very nice and is beautifully decorated and had many aspects we enjoyed. We really enjoyed our time there and if the need to stay in Branson comes up again, we will defiantly consider staying here. Would make an excellent Christmas Vacation place.

Owner's Response: We are really happy you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for all the lovely things you had to say about your stay at our home. We work really hard to make sure our guests enjoy their stay. The lake-access is new (we just finished construction a short time before you arrived), which is why we haven’t changed our listing from lake-view to lake-access yet. :) We are super excited about our private lake-access, however, it isn't quite ready for our guests to fish and lounge at just yet. Unfortunately sometimes debris can get in the lake, however, in the future, when that area is ready to receive guests, we will make every effort to check on it so that it is clear. Also, so our guests are aware, Lake Taneycomo is known for its Trout fishing, as it’s a colder-water lake. We truly appreciate your feedback and kind words. We are very glad you enjoyed your stay and would love to see you all come back in the future. :)

Perfect for a small Family Reunion!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful property! This was the perfect place for four families to get together which ranged from the grandparents, adults, teenagers, and small kids. It was very private so everyone could enjoy time with just the family, and only a short drive to all the Branson attractions. The lake view is beautiful, and the house is perfect for everyone! Thanks again for such a wonderful time!

The perfect weekend get-a-way for three families!

  • 5 of 5

We just want you to know how very much we all enjoyed staying at your lovely home/lodge over this past Labor day weekend! It is so spacious and perfect for our three family's needs. We could spread out and have plenty of room! The theatre room just blew us away and was perfect for catching the Razorback game on Saturday afternoon. And then for a late night movie. The kids loved the play room the workout room was even used!

Our grandchildren LOVED running through your spacious grounds and exploring. And what a view out the back windows. Thanks for the welcome basket and the tag for Charlie, our dog. It was very helpful!

We will definitely keep it in mind for future family vacations.
