About the property

Private Home, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed (Sleeps 7), Hot Tub, Grill, Lakefront

Tall Tree Cottage is a beautiful, charming lakefront cottage on Tablerock Lake. This home comfortably sleeps 7 guests with two queen beds, two twin beds in the loft area and a queen pullout sofabed. New furnishings, earth tone colors and huge windows throughout make for a comfortable and serene setting among the trees.

If you are looking for peace and quiet from the hustle and bustle of Branson (only 20 min by car) or a great place to fish, swim or relax, this is the place for you! Sit on the lake shore and watch the Branson Belle pass by or take in a beautiful sunrise and sunset. Perfect spot for roasting s'mores in the fire circle or having lunch at the picnic table and swimming in the quiet cove.

Bass Pro Marina is nearby for any lake rentals. The State Park Marina is just across the lake by boat. Or, bring your own boat and use the Old 86 Campground access down the road. You can also tie-up outside the property and it is a short, easy walk to the house.

Wonderful restaurants are within a few minutes drive. Branson Landing is approximately 20 minutes away. This home is also in close proximity to Eureka Springs, Arkansas for a quick day-trip visit.

Tall Tree Cottage is a place you will want to come home to while enjoying a vacation in the Branson area.

About Derek or Jennifer Patterson

We built both properties, Tall Tree Cottage and Retreat, in 2007 and 2008, with particular attention to detail and amenities. Unlike many vacation properties on the market, we take exceptional care of these properties and ensure they are 'resort clean' upon arrival of our guests. Be sure to check out our many guestbook comments throughout the years.

Derek or Jennifer Patterson purchased this house in 2007

Why Derek or Jennifer Patterson chose Missouri

We enjoy Tablerock Lake. It's one of the cleanest and quietest lakes in the USA!

What makes this house unique

Quiet, back to nature, campfire ring by the lake, the sound of the boats in the distance humming on the water, fishing on the shoreline, nature walks on the shoreline, boating and swimming and Branson entertainment and family amusement attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first time staying at Tall Tree Cottage and we absolutely loved it! We played football in the rain, relaxed in the hot tub and made s'mores by the campfire while being entertained by daddy long legs taking off with our graham cracker crumbs! My favorite part was being on the boat and at the end of the day watching my husband navigate the boat to tie up at night!

Great getaway

  • 4 of 5

Overall we tried to enjoy our stay. The weather was just crazy the weekend we went. One night we had storms and hail and another night we got 3 inches of snow. The road to get to the house is kind of rough... enough so that I wouldn't take the car to go to town on my own. The house was nice and clean. I only really have 2 complaints. The cookware was terrible and the jets on the bathtub I couldn't get to work. If you book this home for a vacation I strongly suggest you bring your own pans to cook in. We tried to make most of our meals since this is a ways from town and I really wish I had just brought a couple of my own. But other than that the stay was nice and we might would stay here again!

Owner's Response: I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your stay despite the crazy weather! That's Missouri for you! As I stated when I did your refund, I had assumed you got the jets to work during your stay because you never told me otherwise! I apologize, I wish you would have let me know, because they were/are working perfectly. Our cleaner inspected it and said that (as I had mentioned when you texted) that someone had closed the air intake. I could have walked you through that one or had my father-in-law come over and show you! We try our best on our website, etc. to alert everyone that the last 1/4 mile of the road is a private gravel road through the woods. We do not have perfectly paved roads for that last little bit leading to the houses. If it snows, probably need 4WD. So, I suppose for those reading the reviews, just know that you have to go slow. And if you aren't comfortable with 1/4 mile of a gravel road, then this isn't the place for you. However, if you can endure a few bumps along the way, it leads you to properties that are unlike most anything else in the Branson area--beautiful, private and un-commercialized. Pots and pans, I will inspect this week myself. Guests seem to take our things to use over the fire pits unfortunately, so despite our best efforts we don't realize it until someone mentions it.

Amazing quiet cabin on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of 7 and had plenty of room. Newer house. Clean. Great hottub for four. Quiet part of the lake. We had no wind. Charcoal grill only. Kids had alot of fun exploring the grove of trees. Very quiet. It took us about 20 min to get to most places in Branson. There is a small convenience store with quite a bit of the essential grocery items. about 25 min from Harter House, which would be recommended for all the groceries you need. Great cell service. Internet was very slow, but it was know going into the trip that if the previous guests streamed videos that we would run out of data. It wasn't a big deal for us because of great cell service.

I would bring some cooking utensils. They had quite a bit of utensils, but they were old and falling apart. Absolutely only issue and it was minor.

We will be back year after year. They have another house less than a block away if you have another family you want to travel with.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay! The cleaner is heading down today, so I just told her to sift through the utensils and pull out what doesn't look pretty anymore, sorry about that! Our new direct 'site' is awesome and totally online now, take a look at it when you would like to re-book....we'd love to have you back!

Can't say enough positive things about property

  • 5 of 5

I highly highly recommend staying at Tall Tree Cottage. It is a charming home sitting right on the water, fire pits directly behind house and at water front, hot tub on back deck, beautiful home inside, incredibly clean, and amazing views. The owners were bend over backwards helpful and always a quick response.

clean and relaxing little Nook nestled right by the lake

  • 5 of 5

WOW!!!!! better in person the pictures do not do it justice!!!! was very impressed on how clean and nice everything was, I can tell owners really tried hard to make it inviting and comfortable. its right off the lake which was super! hot tub was great.... sitting out on deck at night with all nature sounds and all the stars was so pretty. Having a full kitchen to cook saved on having to eat out all the time. would def stay again, owners were very nice to deal with. I bet this place is absolutely amazing when the trees change color!!!!! our family will be back again, 5 stars def recommend this to couples or families for a fun trip that is close to Branson but not the normal strain of having to live out of a hotel.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind words! We love hearing that others love our little spot as much as we do! Yes, fall is amazing....and winter is great too; especially when there's just a little bit of snow and you can relax in the hot tub and just soak it all in. We'd love to have you and your family back anytime!

Our homes are located in a wooded area of Tablerock Lake surrounded by many types of wildlife and just steps to the shoreline. Our favorite activity in the area is bike riding and picnics at Dogwood Canyon (about 15 min away). Of course, Silver Dollar City at Christmas is a must-see. Other than that, we just enjoy being on the water (Bass Pro Marina is 5 min away) and building a fire for s'mores and hot dogs!
