Overview

Property Details

Updated: Jul 23, 2016
House, 6 Bedrooms, 5 Baths (Sleeps 15-17)

Love where you live on vacation. Bear Trail Lodge is that place. Everyone needs to have one special vacation place where it’s about the moments you share and the memories you’ll enjoy the rest of your life.

Perhaps a little history will help you understand why we believe our Bear Trail Lodge is that perfect place for you, your family and friends. Some of my happiest childhood memories were of the times I spent vacationing with my Grandparents in Branson. When I had children of my own, and then grandchildren, we kept vacationing in Branson because I wanted them to have the same wonderful experiences for themselves. A few years ago my adult children and I decided to make it possible for other families to have a place where they could establish vacation traditions as meaningful as ours. As a result, we built Bear Trail Lodge and have now made it available to you.

You’ll find Bear Trail Lodge located on a quaint little street in the Branson Canyon development just off Hwy 65. Lifestyle here is for all generations and is slow, easy and relaxed. Yet it is only minutes away from Table Rock Lake with boating and fishing, the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course at Top of the Rock, the Branson Airport, and all the exciting energy of the Branson Strip and Branson Landing.

The interior of Bear Trail Lodge was professionally decorated and tastefully depicts the genre of a mountain lodge. It is built on three levels with the main floor and entrance being at street level.

One side of this main level is designed with an open floor plan and vaulted ceilings for the fully equipped Kitchen, large Dining Area, and cozy Living Room with fireplace. The back door opens onto the upper Deck which has a gas grill and offers a beautiful view of the vast natural wooded area. The other side of this main level is the location of one of the Master Bedroom Suites with luxury Bath, and a second King Bedroom with private Bath.

The lower (first) level includes the second Master Bedroom Suite and Bath, another King Bedroom and Bath, a Utility Room with large capacity washer and dryer, and an unusually spacious Den/Game Room. This room provides an abundance of comfortable seating and is equipped with almost every entertainment amenity you can imagine. It opens onto the lower Deck which is only a few steps from the Bridge leading to the Branson Canyon Nature Trail.

The upper (third) level houses one King Bedroom, one Bedroom with two sets of bunkbeds, one full Bath, and the Li’l Cowpokes Hideaway, a small play area for children. All the Bedrooms are furnished with luxurious linens and equipped with flat screen TV’s and DVD players.

We thought it would add a personal touch and a little fun if each of our guests could select a Bedroom which most fit his or her personality. That’s the reason each Bedroom has its own name with furnishings and accessories to create the appropriate venue -- Mama Bear’s, Birdhouse, Rawhide, Haciendo, Hunting and Fishing, and the Bear Camp Bunkhouse. Choose the one you prefer for your vacation enjoyment and make it playful, relaxing, peaceful, romantic, or whatever it is you want and need.

All guests also have access to the beautiful neighborhood Swimming Pool (May through September) and the Community Club House which is open all year. The Clubhouse provides a Pool Table, Media Room, and Exercise Room. It can also be reserved for special group gatherings.

We sincerely want your Vacation Place is be “Beary” special!

Fabulous house for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Bear Trail Lodge lake house the last five days! It was the perfect place for our family to gather, have fun, relax, and shoot off fireworks.

The family room downstairs provided the perfect place for our 15 family members to relax and play games. We all had fun with the air hockey table!

The dining room and kitchen were so open and we were able to eat together with 10 people at the table, one in the high chair, and four at the island. This was the first vacation house where we could all sit together - a fantastic bonus!

Best VRBO experience yet. The bear is awesome

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to "the bear" in Branson came around New Years 2015-2016. We have done a few VRBO's and all have been good experiences with nice places, but the bear cabin surpassed all expectations and was by far the nicest place we have stayed. Each bedroom has it's own bath, the beds are super comfortable and not low quality, typical vacation home material. We all slept like babies! The kitchen had everything we needed and was right where we would hope for it to be. No surprises or hide and seek utensils here. TV service, internet, all worked great. The cardinals on the back deck were a fun and beautiful bonus every morning!

There are some places that you stay that you leave thinking - if only the owner would provide, do or change the home in this way or that, it would be an even better experience. In this case, Karin and Jenny have thought of everything! They were a breeze to work with, very accommodating and some of the most considerate owners we have ever had the pleasure of working with.

Don't hesitate to jump on availability with this cabin. It's a beautiful destination with extras that abound that helped to make our Branson new year one to remember! Thanks Karin!
