Missouri Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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 cottage 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 cottage 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!

Adorable cottage ON the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this super clean, modern, warm, charming house on Table Rock Lake! It felt like home and yet we were in the middle of nowhere!! What a special place. Thank you Jennifer for everything. It was a pleasure to rent from you.

Most wonderful get-a-way ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the most enjoyable vacation we have ever experienced! So nice to get away from all the noise and busyness of our lives, and come to this serene and beautiful home surrounded by the beauty of nature! It was close enough for us to take our grandchildren to Silver Dollar City, and the highlight was going to Bass Pro Marina and renting a pontoon (they have such nice, clean boats!) and spending the day on the beautiful Table Rock Lake! The cottage was perfect . . . clean, well-furnished, and the hot tub was a real hit at the end of each day! Seeing the gray squirrels and chipmunks run across the deck and hearing all the birds was a treat. Our family loved using the fire pits for hot dog roasting and s'mores and then fishing right behind the cottage was fun. The kids had a great time swimming in the lake too. Beautiful sunsets and quiet breezes made this the perfect place for relaxing all week!!! We definitely plan to return!!!!

Second Time Back to Tall Tree Cottage!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at Tall Tree Cottage, this was our second visit but this time we brought the kids! Everything was very clean and we loved using kitchen, Harter House for groceries is where we went, they had everything we needed. Our kids enjoyed skipping rocks & walking the shore, making a bonfire & smores, renting a boat with a water tube from the Bass Pro Marina, sunsets on the lake & all the beautiful scenery! The Marina has beer, soda, water & anything you'd need for a day of boating! We had perfect weather & got so lucky with all the sunshine. We loved going down to the Landing for dinner and shopping, the weather was perfect. Our kids really had a great time!

The only things that would have made our stay better would have been faster internet (understandable for the area) & less noisy beds. Having a young child in the room with us, it was hard overnight soothing the child when she woke up and then getting back into the bed quietly without waking my husband or the baby back up! We could also hear the squeaky bed in the room upstairs from the master room. It's very understandable that the internet isn't the best in the area since the Cottage is so secluded but it was a real struggle just searching for things to do & mapping places to go! I'd make sure to have an outline of what you want to do & where everything is before your trip, download Google maps for offline use. T-Mobile cell service isn't great & the internet connection isn't reliable. Thankfully they had kid movies at the cottage, that was very helpful & appreciated! We brought our own high chair & play pen & gated off the stairs & fireplace for the 1.5 year old, worked out well!

Overall, everything was fantastic & very relaxing. Last time we were there, a lot less neighbors were around so we were a little surprised with how it wasn't as private as it was previously but we still had a great time! We're looking forward to coming back & bringing the rest of the family. We're thinking about about renting the Cottage & Retreat to bring our extended family next time!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your time at the Cottage! 1. Sound like we need to break out the WD40 on the beds, didn't realize they were squeaky! 2. The wifi is high-speed satellite internet (the only thing we can get out there). If you have multiple devices running at the same time, for instance watching a movie and using a phone or laptop, it will slow down. We have ATT and get great coverage; I just looked at the T-Mobile coverage map just to make sure and it says 4G is available everywhere out there. 3. Yes, we have had two new homes go in within the past couple of years, one being the in-laws beautiful home next door. Although it isn't completely secluded anymore, it's better than staying in a condo, golf course or resort full of people any day! We have posted new pictures and drone video on our website for everyone to check out. Our other house, the Retreat is the more secluded of the two if that's what you're looking for in the future!

Beautiful, well-maintained property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time and were very pleased with the decor and comfort of the house. The road makes it difficult to get to, but worth it given its location on Table Rock Lake! The hot tub and fire pit are a great addition!

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great time. Yes, we are just off the beaten path but only a 1/4 mile well maintained gravel road to the homes. The price one pays to be secluded :) Hope to have you back soon.

Weary Saints

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I needed a much needed rest from ministry and just the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The cottage was absolutely perfect. Far away enough from town to enjoy the serenity of the lake but close enough to run in to do some shopping and grab a bite to eat. My husband was especially excited to hear elk bugling while we were in the hot tub and the jets had kicked off. Bed was comfortable, view spectacular, and our stay was most relaxing.

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!
