REAL LOG HOME - ENGLEMAN SPRUCE - THE REFUGE AT TALL PINES

Branson Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The Refuge at Tall Pines is built of huge 10-inch Engleman Spruce logs from Colorado. It has 3 great BRs in 2000 square feet of indoor living space. Various outdoor living areas include a screened-in sleeping porch, a covered porch, an open deck and a hot-tub deck. The main level features a large stone fireplace (gas log), huge custom windows, 2 bedrooms, bath, and a large country kitchen. Upstairs there is a cozy loft with great views of the surrounding forest, a large private master bedroom suite with separate shower and extra large tub. The lowest level is a comfortable movie room area with a premium entertainment system (7.1 digital surround sound) and the ever-popular foosball table. The family room also has a gas-log fireplace. Full laundry facilities are tucked away in the corner of the lowest level.

Tall Pines is a 40 acre wooded property with hiking trails and several other rental units. It is difficult to describe how beautiful this property really is. The photos just begin to tell the story. Tall Pines is truly a slice of Paradise on earth.

The Refuge is private and secluded. The other rentals on the property are easy walking distance but are hidden by the forest. See listing #54662 for 'The Sanctuary', listing #135116 for 'The Hiding Place', and listing #394764 for 'Woodsong Cottage'. If you are looking for something closer to Silver Dollar City, try out our partner: Woods Edge Cabin - 3 Bed, sleeps 6-8 listing #439091.

Tall Pines is a perfect place for family reunions. Up to 30 persons can stay in the four properties. You can celebrate together and each have your separate space.

We are both teachers. Margie guides 7th and 8th graders at Branson J.H. towards excellence in character and beginning Spanish. Bruce improves the quality of culture in the Ozarks by teaching music at College of the Ozarks. Tall Pines is our creative outlet, building and decorating beautiful homes in the idyllic setting of the Ozarks woods.

Margie Gerlach purchased this cabin in 2005

The land is gorgeous! We have easy access to Table Rock Lake, one of the prettiest lakes you will ever see. Its a quick commute on good roads to our work in Branson. Minimal tourist traffic!

We enjoy the peaceful countryside away from the bustle of Branson. A large cattle ranch surrounds our property. Another one is just across the road. I love the cows! Almost every other Branson rental is tight up against a lot of other ones, cabins upon cabins and condos upon condos. Ours is not anything like that and we will keep it that way. We honor the beauty of the land. Enjoying nature is of paramount importance. Tall Pines is one of the best places we know for enjoying nature.

WONDERFUL MEMORIES

  • 5 of 5
I'm late writing this review for our stay at the Refuge this past March. Our trip was so memorable that I've thought about it often and just remembered that I haven't reviewed this wonderful cabin. Everything was perfect and was consistent with the listing and the reviews: decorations were beautiful; everything worked; very clean; very comfortable. The ping pong table was our favorite activity when at the house -- I played for hours with my kids. We also got in a round of Frisbee golf and a treasure hunt. The cabin and grounds were a terrific place to just hang out - and we did a lot of that. The owners were very friendly and the rental was extremely easy. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in the Branson area. We loved eating at Ruth's and at the College of the Ozarks, where the student servers work hard, are enthusiastic, and do a great job!

ALWAYS PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
This was our third stay at Tall Pines and our first stay in "The Refuge" home. My wife and daughters loved it. Just like the "Woodsong Cottage" home, the house was beautiful and perfectly provided everything we wanted for our family getaway. We also love that the homes feel secluded yet are only 20 minutes from the Branson strip or Dogwood Canyon. The owners Margie and Bruce are so easy to deal with. Highly recommended.

WONDERFUL STAY! BEAUTIFUL & SECLUDED CABIN!

Wonderful Stay! Beautiful & Secluded Cabin!
  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at this cabin as a little get-away as a gift to my folks and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The cabin was beautifully decorated (my husband and I are now dreaming of a day when we can build our own log cabin) and very comfortable! It has a lot of great amenities, including the hot tub, pool & ping pong tables, entertainment center, scenic view, the list goes on! The beds were very comfortable too, and everything was very clean!
We had some family that are local to the Springfield area come down for a cookout on Saturday and we heard lots of compliments about the cabin! We would definitely recommend it to anyone and plan to stay here again (and again!) in the future!! Thanks for everything!! :)

HOME!

  • 5 of 5
This was a fantastic stay for our family! We try new cities every year for Spring Break, and Branson made the cut this year. So glad that we were able to find Margie, and The Refuge! The bedrooms are wonderful, comfy...you feel like you are at home-only better! The kitchen was well stocked with all the needed items to prepare meals. Ping Pong table and pool table were a huge hit. The hiking trails, the treasure chest...THE HOT TUB... we all had a relaxing, family bonding time! It was so beautiful to return from Branson in the evening and as you approach the drive to the house, you could see Branson twinkling in the distance. The whole ambiance of the "grounds" is relaxing!
The owners did recommend meals at the Twin Island Restaurant--at the gas station. We HIGHLY recommend this as well! The meals were FANTASTIC, with very reasonable prices, great, friendly locals! We also personally saw Acrobats of China: Amazing show! The Haygoods:Great Music, VERY entertaining and the Dixie Stamped: MUST DO! If you are looking for the home where your family can come together, relax, this home is what you have been looking for! If you are looking for an easy owner to assist you, then you need to contact Margie.

Owner's Response: We love eating at Twin Isles too! It is called "Ruth's" What it lacks in aesthetics, it makes up for in great tasting food. Bruce and I like to go there for breakfast. Bruce orders the pancakes and I order their fabulous hash brown casserole then we share it. It is AWESOME! Sometimes it sure beats cooking.
Come back and see us! Margie

ONE OF THE BEST PLACES WE HAVE STAYED

  • 5 of 5
This is one of the better places we have stayed and my wife and I consider it a real find in the VRBO world. This is the second year in a row we have stayed at Tall Pines and it was just a good as last year. (we stayed in one of their other 4 places on the 40 acre property) We like the seclusion and the quietness. The location is just the right distance from town while not being in town. Once in the cabin, it's easy to forget that you are not miles out in the woods. It's quiet and peaceful and the hot tub is warm and inviting in the winter. The owners are easy to work with and had the place clean and inviting when we arrived.
