VACATION HOME IN BRANSON

WHERE FAMILY AND FRIENDS MEET

A place to stay and a place to play

View nature’s beauty from our triple windows in the great rooms, our expansive back decks, or our Adirondack chairs on the front porches.

The Ozark Mountains are just outside, with Table Rock Lake a short stroll away and Branson a short drive away.

Canyon Retreat and Nature’s Retreat are not just a place to stay, but a place to play. We have “decked out” our homes with many, many exceptional amenities, including the following:

  • king beds and TVs in each bedroom
  • family rooms with sleek black pool tables, solid wood poker table (Canyon Retreat), foosball table (Nature’s Retreat)
  • large decks with gas grills
  • kitchens with everything, even a Keurig and a KitchenAid
  • and more

Canyon Retreat

4 bedrooms | 4 baths | sleeps 14

Make Canyon Retreat your family headquarters when you play at Table Rock Lake and Branson.

Great room

The great room has a view of the beautiful Table Rock Lake, boasts soaring cathedral ceilings, and is open to the dining and kitchen areas. It has two comfortable sofas, one of them a queen size sleeper, a 42 inch flatscreen TV with DVD player, as well as a box of toys for the children.

Dining

The dining area has a large table with seating for eight people. We also provide a card table and four folding chairs for additional table seating.

Kitchen

The kitchen is open to the dining and great room, making conversation across the rooms effortless.

We have fully stocked the kitchen with stoneware place settings, heavy stainless flatware, glasses, mugs, stemware, cooking utensils, pots and pans, baking dishes, crockpots, muffin tins, cookie sheets, and even stoneware for pizza.

Of course, there is also a dishwasher, side-by-side refrigerator, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee pot, blender, waffle maker, and a KitchenAid mixer for you to use.

And for the coffee lovers, we added a Keurig machine for your use. Be sure to bring your favorite K-cups or pick some up at the grocery store 5 minutes away.

Family room

The 700+ sq. ft. family room is my boys’ favorite place to hang out at. It features a sleek black pool table, a 50 inch TV with DVD player, a poker table, and a steamer trunk full of board games.

Deck

The large back deck is about 24’ x 12’, has a gas grill and a patio set, and has a gorgeous view of the Ozark Mountains and Table Rock Lake.

Laundry

Lastly, the laundry room is on the lower level and has a washer and a dryer for you to use during your stay at Canyon Retreat.

Bedrooms

Sleep well on top-of-the-line comfort mattresses in each bedroom at Canyon Retreat. The sheets are a luxurious 600tc single-ply Egyptian cotton, and there are light blocking curtains over the shades in case you would like to sleep late.

All bedrooms also have bedside reading lamps and flat screen TVs. Each is also equipped with a Google Chromecast so you can cast your favorite Netflix shows and movies onto any of the TVs, as well as YouTube, Hulu, Amazon, and more.

The second bedroom is located on the main level, and the third and fourth bedrooms are on the upper level. The family room has two queen size sofa sleepers with extra thick 7 inch mattresses for comfort.

Bathrooms

The master bath has a deep jetted tub, double sink vanity, a walk-in shower, and a large walk-in closet. Light the pillar candles for soft, romantic lighting as you soak into your vacation getaway.

The second bathroom on the main level has a walk-in shower, and the other two bathrooms have shower/tub combinations.

REVIEWS

WOW! What a vacation home. The house was beautiful, the pictures of the house are nice, but the house is so much more!!! We had a wonderful time there.

The game room was just the get away the guys needed and the dining room and living room was the place the girls needed to relax. The pool was a perfect place for all the kids and the club house was very nice.

Everything we needed was there in the house. Everyone that stayed wanted to take the house with them. Everyone just loved the floor plan and the use of space.

Thanks for providing a beautiful home for our weekend. Our family had a great time at your home. We all were impressed with how nicely decorated and furnished it was.

The four king beds were great and the nice TVs downstairs and on the main level were great. You have done a wonderful job with this vacation home. We enjoyed ourselves very much and will definitely recommend it to others. Thanks for providing a wonderful place for my dad’s 70th b-day celebration.

ABOUT

THE OWNER

When we decided to build a vacation home in Branson in 2007, we knew that the house and property that we chose would have to not only accommodate our family, but entertain them as well.

So with three little boys, we searched for a place with several bedrooms, an open floor plan, and a swimming pool. We also had to have a lake view and a large deck for our enjoyment.

In Canyon Retreat we found everything we wanted and more. Then 3 years later, we decided to build another vacation home since Canyon Retreat is so immensely popular with other families like ours. Nature’s Retreat is also in the “preppy nature” theme and has quickly become just as popular as Canyon Retreat.

Not sure what to do while you are in Branson? Take a look here at our family’s favorite activities, as well as many others to choose from.

We’re excited about sharing our vacation homes with you and hope you and yours enjoy them as much as we do!

And if we are able to have a longer stay, we will visit Silver Dollar City for some spectacular roller coaster rides or head to White Water for some water ride thrills.

There are many, many activities to choose from in Branson, and we have fun exploring new ones each time we visit.
