Scenic Serenity

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 9 individuals, from 3 years to 80 years of age, travel all over the country. From Cape Cod, MA to San Diego, CA... And when all 9 individuals say they were 100% satisfied with Trimble Creek Lodge, this review should resonate will all that are contemplating on traveling to this particular location.

From the moment we drove down the old dirt road to gain access to the 70+ acre property... We all were a bit worried with what we would find at the end of the road. However, the moment we entered the Trimble Creek Lodge property that all changed as we were greeted with beautifully groomed & spacious land... Immediately, we could tell the owners took great pride in keeping the land in excellent condition. There also was the spectacular views of the lake (absolutely breathtaking)! As we followed the gravel road to the lodge, where we would eventually would check-in, we noticed the adorable Meadow House, the Barn, the Bunk House, and then the main house with attached lodge… All within walking distance!!! My 80 year old grandparents were ecstatic that the houses were all in close proximity to one another, as they were able to walk back and forth from the Meadow House to the Lodge each day.

We were given a short tour of the property and the houses we would be staying. Each house presented its own unique charm and character. The main house / lodge was the gathering point for our family each day/night, as this location offers the best views and also is the designated entertainment area. The Meadow House is at the opposite end of the property, where the grandparents stayed. This particular house offered complete tranquility and rest to those that stayed. The Barn House was another gem of the property! It has been converted to an apartment style living area, and offers a gorgeous bathroom!

I could go on…and on about the lodging facilities at Trimble Creek Lodge… But I believe it’s equally important to note the extraordinary hospitality that was given to use by the owners. They went out of their way to make sure our every need was catered too…and I found that this type of treatment is a rarity, and we all felt a little spoiled as a result of how well we were taken care of. We already miss the wonderful smells of lavender on all the towels and bed linens… and the owners teaching us all how to make old-school ice cream (homemade ice cream)… and the owners baking us fresh homemade batch of bread for dinner! Thank you Lulu & Michael for a wonderful time!

Exceptional in Every Way!

For 10 + years, Our group of 10 has utilized VRBO for summer vacation accommodations. This lodge stands out from the many (very nice) rentals we have utilized. The Lodge is set atop a hill overlooking a cove on Bull Shoals Lake. Bull Shoals remains as unspoiled and pristine as it was 30+ years ago during summers there with our grandparents. The pictures of this lodge offer only a basic overview of the beauty of the surroundings and accommodations. The lodge itself consists of 3 cottages and a bunkhouse. Our family utilized the east cottage, the meadow house and the barn. Every cottage was immaculately clean. Spa quality towels, soaps and toiletries were provided. Even so, the lodge has a comfortable, easy atmosphere. Every detail is anticipated. We planned and cooked special meals every night. The East Cottage kitchen was extremely well equipped, and did not lack for any amenity. The two refrigerators were ideal to store everything we needed to dine in for our meals. The lodge offers ample dining space around large tables. After dinner, we enjoyed the sunset and reclined on the porch to gaze at the night sky. The grounds around all the cabins are lovely and carefully maintained. Cable and string lighting adds an ambience that is both delightful and relaxing. Like the rest of the property, the dock is very clean and an ideal place to spend the afternoon swimming, fishing or paddle boating/row boating.

The hospitality at this Lodge is likewise, exceptional. Owners Lulu and Michael are helpful and gracious. From churning homemade ice cream to advice regarding activities, they are always available to assist. They live on site and provide services to guests, but do so with impeccable timing that is neither "too much" nor "too little". Guests enjoy privacy and intimate family gatherings without foregoing the luxury of careful hospitality. Lulu and Michael are both intelligent and kind. They were at ease with every member of our group, which ranged in age from 13 to 77. All of us, including our 4 teens, want to come back next year!

An additional note --- the rural setting and ample acreage surrounding the Lodge is a great plus. Between board games, foosball, swimming and fishing, one need not leave to enjoy the day. However, it is not hard to venture out. Branson, river fishing, boating, canoeing and tubing are all within an easy (and picturesque) 15-45 minute drive from the lodge.

We are most grateful for our time at Trimble Creek!
