Love where you live on vacation! Bear Trail Lodge is that place. Everyone needs to have a vacation where it’s about the fun things you did and the time you spent together, and you’ll enjoy remembering all of your life.

Our Bear Trail Lodge is the perfect place for you, your family and friends. You will have happy family times and gorgeous photos from your vacation home stay.

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 in the Branson Canyon development just off Hwy 65. 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 designed for all ages to enjoy. 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 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, Hacienda, 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 feel our home is a excellent choice for your family or multigenerational gathering!

Wonderful house, great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 13 truly enjoyed our stay! The 3 floors were perfect for our large family of multiple ages. It was so nice that 5 of the bedrooms were furnished with king size beds and the 6th bedroom had bunk beds, perfect for my 4 grandsons.

Some of my favorite things about the house was it's well-equipped kitchen, the comfortable beds with their beautiful linens and the tasteful decorations throughout the house. Karen told me she likes to shop and that is evident from all the beautiful items in the house!

The location of Branson Canyon is very convenient to all the activities we were interested in. We spent an evening at The Track enjoying all the go karts, bumper boats and, of course, the Navy Pier Ferris Wheel, so pretty at night! We also spent a day on the lake by renting a pontoon from The Table Rock Lake Marina, and also a day at Silver Dollar City. The girls in our group enjoyed the shopping at Tanger Outlet Mall and The Landing. The pool at the club house was much appreciated as it was so very hot the week of our stay. We also enjoyed swimming at the nearby dock area.

Karen could not have been more cordial or helpful, so thank you for opening your beautiful home to my family, we had a fabulous time! Debra

Owner's Response: It makes my heart happy to hear you loved it! I love helping families to have a wonderful place and everything they might need and then knowing they enjoyed it! Glad you experienced Table Rock lake and some of the fun stuff in Branson. We spend several weeks there and never get everything on our want list done. There is just so much to do in the area and lots of new stuff. You should come back in the is beautiful with the trees and leaves changing colors in the Ozarks right out the windows! Just spectacular and great specials.....

Loved Bear Trail Lodge!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year booking Bear Trail Lodge. Again, as in 2015, we found the home so warm and welcoming...we just love staying in this home. It is so comfortable for our large group (8 adults & 4 kids), very kid-friendly yet wonderfully decorated. On both visits (2015 & 2016) we found the house to be very, very clean and very well-maintained. The owner provides everything you could possibly need or need to worry about anything: kitchen well stocked with dishes/bowls, eating utensils, pots & pans, coffee pots, paper towels, trash bags, etc.; bathrooms had LOTS of towels and toilet paper. Beds were unbelievable comfortable with top of the line bedding. Washer & dryer, detergent, iron & ironing board also provided. We felt "at home" in Bear Trail Lodge as soon as we entered on our first day there...second stay was not a disappointment...our experience matched our anticipation/expectation. We found everything to be as stated on the listing for property. Lastly, but so important, the owner of Bear Trail Lodge is so great to work with! Karin & her daughter Jennifer do a superb job answering questions, resolving any issues, and making sure visitors to their home have all the information they need prior to their visit. Would definitely book this house again (and again) and would recommend it to friends & family.

Owner's Response: Thank you...such kind words....I love it! And we love having you. It is important to us to keep things maintained, clean and new. When we travel we rent houses and know what it feels like to arrive and be disappointed by old, dirty and out dated! No way! We want the best, the newest, the most, the prettiest! So we try.....even though it is not going to be perfect. We hope to see you again and we promise to try our best to provide the best vacation home we can for your family!

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!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to share about your experience. We love having families at our place. We are glad we could help provide "the environment " where gathering your family was a little easier. So now you will want to do it again! Please think of our Bear Trail Lodge and we also have the Gracious Moose next door if you want to invite more family and friends.
