I,ve been to Branson 16 times .The first 2 times i stayed elsewhere. The 3rd time i visited i had a issue with my reservations at a place closer to town. Now picture this if you will. In Branson , with the wife and 4 children, at the time 2,4,7.and 10 years old.tired from the drive,hot and sticky,and my reservation downtown had been taken at the downtown location.Pretty much (in my price range) and big enough for six options seemed dismal.By luck and luck only,i had stopped to get gas and asked the clerk if he knew of any place that was available and that would fit my needs. It's now 8:30 p.m. and i am desperate.
The clerk was really no help,but i heard a voice behind me saying i have just the place for you and your family.He had reservations for 2 weeks at this place called Sunrise Suites.He described it to me and said that he had just checked out about an hour or so ago.He had a family emergency at home and had to cut his trip short by 10 days.10 days is the time we had for our vacation.Could i possibly get lucky and get into Sunrise.He gave me the number.When i called i talked to a gal named Maryann. I told her my situation and told her about the gentleman i talked to.She told me that i could check in after 10 a.m. the next day.I explained the whole story to her,and she asked me to hold on a moment. I overheard her talking to her husband ,and when she came back on she said that her and her husband would meet us at the location.She also said the reason she told me 10a.m. is because they havent cleaned it yet as the prior tenants had just left. Upon arrival my wife and I looked in awe as to is this really it,WOW. We met Maryann & Doug .When we arrived those 2 plus their son Miles were cleaning , changing sheets , over all cleaning and replenishing toiletries,towels,etc.....After about 45 minutes their daughter shows up with 2 pizzas chips pop etc.....i said what is this,and they said you now have a place to stay,you now have food and drink,the A/C is pumping and the crickets are chirping.Your family vacation starts now,forget about todays disappointments and focus on some relaxing family time.
After a great nights sleep we woke up to a perfect day.We saw we we had stumbled into.A panoramic view,table rock lake,trees,some hawks flying around,some squirrels scampering about,a spotless affordable home for 9 days more.Wow we got so lucky.close to all the parks,recreation,shopping,lake,beach,boats ,fishing,shows,dining,grocery etc........
