About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 5 Baths (Sleeps 15-17)

The Bear Trail Lodge is not the 'bare' necessities! We have filled our place with the EXTRAS. So if you have the responsibility of finding the 'special' place for the family or group to gather....this might be it!

It is a special place for our family to share and enjoy time together and the wonderful things to do and the area. It is designed for all ages to be able to come to gather but enough space to not be too much together!


I have happy childhood memories of vacationing with my Grandparents in Branson. 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 built on three levels with the main floor and entrance being at street level. Extra parking area just across from home.

Main level is an open floor plan and vaulted ceilings with fully equipped Kitchen, large Dining Area, and 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 with bird feeder. Also on main level is one of the Master Bedroom Suites with luxury Bath, and a second King Bedroom with full Bath.

The lower (first) level includes the second Master Bedroom Suite and huge 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 and a shortcut trail to the Swimming Pool, Clubhouse and Playground.

The upper (third) level houses one King Bedroom, one Bunkhouse 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. Commercial quality Playground by clubhouse and a Basketball court.

We feel our home is a excellent choice for your family or multigenerational gathering!

Perfect Home for Multi Family Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Bear Trail Lodge was perfect for our annual Christmas vacation! We had four families stay for the week (8 adults, 4 toddlers and 2 infants). It was so nice for everyone to have their own bedroom and attached bath. The home is very clean and well taken care of - it was even decorated for Christmas! I was very impressed with all the essentials that were stocked and organized in the kitchen. We cooked several big meals and I had no trouble finding all the dishes and utensils that we needed. The basement was great for movie watching with the kids all cuddled up on the large sectional couch. Beds were super comfy and the master bathrooms are ah-mazing! Our family will for sure stay at Bear Trail Lodge the next time we are in Branson.

The Property Was Excellent.

  • 5 of 5

This Is Got To Be The Best Rental We Have Ever Done. The House Is Just Decorated Unlike Any Rental You Will Ever Find. Finding This Rental Has Been The Best Thing Ever. There Is Plenty Of Parking And The Lady That Rents The Place Stays Next Door And She Makes Sure That You Have EVERYTHING You Could Possibly Need. 5 Stars In My Book.

Fantastic fun place

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 families (8 adults and 4 kids) and we all had a blast! The kids loved the bunk beds. Kitchen was supplied with more than we would expect and more than we have seen in the past at other homes. This location was very quiet and did not seem crowded at all. Some of the other streets in this area seemed FULL of vehicles. We would definitely stay here again.

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!
