My family greatly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful vacation home and everything exceeded my wildest expectations. The home is beautiful, comfortable and has everything you need and is convenient to the city of Branson. It is such a great house for a big family like ours. Very clean and we had plenty of room for all the kids to play. The pool was so close and worked out great for everyone. Also, the owners are really nice people and easy to work with, answered all of our questions and gave friendly advice. I would definitely recommend this property to all of our friends and we look forward to getting back together there again soon!

Perfect home!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect for our family getaway. It’s nice and quiet but still very close to anything and everything. We travel often, all over the USA, and these owners are the kindest, most accommodating and thoughtful of any owners we’ve dealt with. When we come back to Branson, this is where we’ll stay!!

Great stay and perfect for my family.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect for my family of ten.We had plenty of room: to sleep, to sit and rest, and places to sit and eat. We loved the area: close to everything we needed but out of the rush area. Thank you to the owners for taking such great care of us.

We loved the accommodations!

Ray and Mariea were excellent to work with. The Cottage was clean and beautifully decorated and had everything we needed for our stay. We booked The Cottage based on other reviews and were not disappointed. Our family arrived at differing times, and it was fun to hear the "oh this is really nice" and other compliments as they checked out the rooms. We hope to return for another stay. I highly recommend The Cottage and Ray and Mariea.
