LUXURIOUS 7-ACRE HIDDEN HAVEN ON LAKE, FISHING, HIKING, GOLFER

Branson House Rental Photos and Description

House, 7 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 20)

Luxury, rest, creative space, privacy, peace....hiking, fishing, wooded walks, family memories...we invite you to experience our lakefront home, Rivendell in Branson.

Ideal for family reunions, staff meetings, retreats, luxurious vacations, golf outings, girls getaways, and those who want to hike and fish by day and relax in a hot tub by night...

Our guests have asked to take our mattresses home, 'borrow' our original art :-), move in permanently...One tween hugged her mom and said, 'I feel like I'm a princess!!'

Golfers rest between rounds near the grill or fireside for a game of chess. Fishermen hike down to the lake to catch trout for lunch. Families walk through the woods and roast marshmallows over the firepit. Sunlovers tan on the deck and then lounge in the hot tub...

No need to worry about thin walls or loud neighbors or traffic noises...or people even knowing where you are! Our address is literally off the map, tucked away within 7 acres, hidden by trees on 3 sides and Lake Taneycomo on the fourth.

Though just 3.5 miles from Hwy 76, 6 miles from Branson Landing and minutes further to all the fun Branson offers, you may never want to leave once you pull into the garage...

Wake-up in your luxurious bedroom to watch the deer in the morning. Warm-up to winter seated fireside by the Lord of the Rings chess set. Take a nature walk with loved ones. Enjoy laughter with family and friends around a grand dining table, over a game of shuffleboard, table bowling, foosball, pinball, or with the Wii.

Watch the sunset with a panoramic lake view on one of the decks. Relax in the 8-10 person hot tub or detox in the 2-person sauna before you say, 'good-night.'

And end the day with a cup of your favorite coffee and a great book from Rivendell's house library as you sink into one of our fabulous chaises and chairs.

Welcome to our family's B&B (without the 2nd B).

Welcome to a private home hidden in the woods on Lake Taneycomo.

Welcome to a resting space where no one can find you and no one is calling your name.

Keywords: luxurious, lakefront, wooded, private home, sauna, hot tub, fishing, hiking, large groups, family reunions, church retreats

Early 2010, our fun-filled family embarked on four months of remodeling to transform this lakeview home into Rivendell! After taking prayer and writing retreats for 17 years, the door opened for us to create a retreat home of our own.

Through the miracle of adoption, we are the overjoyed parents of three outrageously creative children. Our eldest is gifted with Asperger's Syndrome, our middle is graced with extroverted compassion, and our youngest is currently seeking to master burping the ABCs... We home school part-time, parent full-time, and laugh a lot to stay sane.

Our personal residence is about one hour from Rivendell -- out in the country where you can count the stars. We are the happy guardians of 4 rescued (outside) dogs, 3 odd (outside) cats, 1 rabbit (yes, inside...for the moment), and 9 unusually social chickens.

We write. We travel. We invest in the next generation. We welcome you to Rivendell, our Branson retreat home!

Marie purchased this house in 2009

The rocks, hills, trees, lakes...Branson is filled with natural beauty. Since moving to Missouri from Texas in 1996, we've made frequent trips down to Branson to take the kids to Silver Dollar City as a family or to find a quiet retreat for rest and writing individually. We love the drive and often have taken side roads to simply enjoy the scenery.

Over the years, a dream grew in our heart of creating a home that could be a happy haven for families and a spiritual resting place for pilgrims. Our dreams accelerated in October of 2009 when we found this gorgeous home with a beautiful view, private acreage, and enough room for us to create a place of renewal and rest.

Reunions, family vacations, staff retreats, personal getaways, a writer's haven...

Groups will enjoy cooking in a beautiful lake view kitchen with 2 ovens. Once dinner is served, all can eat together in a kitchen/dining room that seat 22 comfortably or many more by simply opening the dining room door onto the upper deck.

Families will appreciate two living rooms, a 4-bed bunkroom just inches off the lower family room, loads of interactive games, and enough decks, patios, and yard to give everyone space to roam.

Small groups will delight in several warm rooms ideal for connecting, debriefing, brainstorming, and planning for the future with the only distractions being an occasional eagle and the irresistible sunsets...Our conference-size dining table seats 16 in comfort in a room sure to inspire.

Individuals will relish their private bedrooms, each of which features a relaxing chair/chaise and a desk that will bring out the writer in you! Every room is named, customized, and designed to spoil your body while you rest your mind.

Peaceful Oasis

We loved every minute of our time at Rivendell. My family (9 adults, 4 young children) stayed here for four nights last week. The entire house is lavishly furnished for rest and rejuvination. We especially appreciated how family friendly the home was with pack and plays, games, DVDs, toys, etc. The view was astounding, and we treasured our time relaxing on the deck taking in the beauty. The hot tub was an added perk that was perfect for the unseasonably cool weather we had. All the beds were extremely comfortable and there were ample extra pillows, blankets, towels, etc. What a perfect retreat! We hope to return very soon!
Owner's Response: We are so happy your family enjoyed their time at Rivendell and we thank you for such a wonderful review. Rivendell is the manifestation of our heart's desire for restoration and renewal for families. We have furnished it so it is comfortable and accommodating from the very young to the very mature. And yes, the views of Lake Taneycomo are serene and stunning. In October the trees dress up in their finest, making it an absolutely majestic view. We are happy to you were refreshed and look forward to hosting your family again.

This home was AWESOME the serenity was so welcoming. My family & my sister family took our first vacation together this Home was more than we could have hoped for the front porch was used by one of us all the time just rocking and appreciateing the beauty and peacefulness. Our grandkids where in heaven with the Pac Mac Pinball machine & foosball ..we could have stayed at the house the whole time instead of planning events..We will know for the next time.

Excellent Family Get Away

Our family met at this beautiful property for my mother's 75th birthday celebration. The home was luxurious and the beds and pillows were dreamy. We had a problem with the internet due to a storm and the property manager, and the owners couldn't do enough to get us back "on-line". The kitchen was very well stocked. Our entire family plus a few family friends who stopped by for a day were all quite impressed with Alicia's mission for a place of restfulness, prayer, and reflection. The home was accessible for my elderly parents to get in and out of, but the trail down to the water is fun for adventure seekers, and nature lovers, but not for elderly parents.

A group of 10 of us came to Rivendell for a girl's weekend and it exceeded our expectations! I think our favorite thing to do was sit around the HUGE kitchen table and just eat and talk! The rooms were lovely and the views were beautiful. Even though it rained half of the time we were there, we had a wonderful time! We all decided to return next year and do it again!

This house was everything in the listing and much more. I wish we could have stayed longer. Great location, beautiful surroundings. Coffee on the deck each morning was truly special. Loved the fresh beans left for us by the Choles. Such a nice touch. We can hardly wait to go back.
