Middle of the Road for Large Reunions
Submitted: July 6, 2011
Stayed: June 2011
Our family reunion was held here in mid June 2011. The home is nicely laid out with 2 bedrooms up, 2 on the main level and 3 downstairs. The kitchen is a bit small when the several families of guests reach maximum occupancy and all bring in their groceries and beverages. The downstairs game room is nice and very cool. The front porch is most awesome with a lovely porch swing and two comfortable oversize rockers. The back deck has a nice seating area however it is sun most all day long. Nice for non-peak summer times but a bit too hot for our use. The two bedrooms up were a bit warm in the afternoon and early evening. The home is stocked nicely and clean. My one biggest complaint is that the yard area was unlevel and full of rocks left from recent construction and it is very small and weedy. Perhaps this will be improved over time. The kids used the very small front yard not large enough for suitable yard play and games.. Also the neighborhood is still being constructed so the construction vehicles and work was ongoing. The pool area is very nice and was a big hit with the family overall. Nice location to Branson area for all those shows and in-town happenings!
Owner's Response: Since we have never gotten anything less than a five star rating from any of our guests, I feel I need to respond to this comment.
1) There is a reason we have a maximum occupancy limit of 22 people for the home. If exceeded, then of course the home will not seem as large. No home can be kept 100% cool if children are constantly running in and out of the door letting warm air inside, or if guests staying elsewhere are brought into the home for a visit, adding additional use.
2) Branson Canyon, where this home is located, is such a nice location with the pool and club house, that others have found this nice development to build a home for themselves and their guests. The street Ozark Charm is on did have an empty lot which someone decided to build on, but I cannot control that and it is, indeed, a temporary situation for June and July of this year.
3) Pictures of the front lawn, which was sodded and is kept mowed, were/are on the internet. This is the Ozarks, where practically no home in the Branson area has a perfectly level yard.
We strive to provide traveling guests, family and friends, a large and comfortable place for them to stay all together while in Branson. Before we began building these larger homes, families did not have the option to all stay together, but had to get seperate accomodations. Ozark Charm, as well as our other 7 bedroom homes, have been there to help families create wonderful memories and we have recieved such positive feedback. If your group is larger than 22, perhaps our Royal Moose or Black Bear Lodges would be better. We have had several large groups of up to 45 stay at both of these lodges together since they are built right next to each other.
