Ridgedale Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Let me take this opportunity to share with you a great way to stay in Branson. Our Branson vacation rental cabin “Moose Canyon Lodge” sits on a quiet hill just 9 miles south of the busy Hwy 76 strip in Branson and less than 15 minutes from the Branson Airport (BKG).

After a full day of shopping, shows, and fun in Branson, your home away from home offers a relaxing setting to help you get ready for the next day. You could enjoy: Private hot tub, watching a family friendly DVD, playing games on our game table, the whirlpool tub in the master bath for those intimate moments, saving $ by cooking your own meals with our fully furnished kitchen, a fire in the wood burning fireplace to enhance the experience.

There is even a washer and dryer in case something needs washed. And for those of you who can’t stay away from the world too long, we have wireless high speed Internet and cable TV.

For those of you looking for a romantic getaway, our whirlpool tub, hidden accent lighting and rock fireplace provides a great atmosphere to enjoy your loved ones company. Two of the bedrooms offer private access to the back patio for that late night soak in the outdoor hot tub.

As you know, Branson is a great place to bring the family on vacation and what better way to make it special than to stay in our “Moose Canyon Lodge”. And don’t forget to count the moose around the cabin and sign our guest book to let us know about your stay.

The photos here and on the cabin's website were updated in the last 2 years.

The golf course has been converted into a Disc (Frisbee) Golf Course along with a RC car track, walking trails, Airsoft and paint ball.

“But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD”. Joshua 24:15 KJV

About Brian Younger

Let me introduce you to the Younger family. And yes, I am a distant relative to the Younger Brother gang, but not a direct descendant. My name is Brian, then there is my lovely bride Shelly and my oldest daughter Lindsey and my youngest daughter (who thinks she is older than she is) Paige. We are a family of pilgrims, just passing through.

Brian Younger purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Brian Younger chose Ridgedale

Branson has always been a favorite vacation spot for me and my family. We enjoy all the live entertainment. We especially enjoy the fact that it is very family friendly. There's always something new to do in Branson.

Guestbook comments from the owner

brian, i just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful week in your cabin. from the pre-arrival email to the text to the cleaning lady saying that we have left, it was a fantastic vacation. we are a very clean and organized family and we arrived to the same - a clean, full home away from home. your cabin had everything we needed. we too left some dishwasher soap, a few rolls of toilet paper, ect to keep it going from other past guests. once again, thank you!!

oh, and do you even know how many moose are in the cabin? my husband made it a mission to count them all.... he swears he counted them all :)

...So much more than just a cabin....

  • 5 of 5

Three words come to mind when I think of your cabin: Clean, comfortable, and cozy!! Our stay was wonderful! Not only is there easy access from the highway to the cabin, but you park only steps away from the front door. Also, you know it's a great place to stay when your children, teens included, do not want to leave the cabin to go into town! I often heard about cabins where the owners claim to offer all of the amenities of home, but this one goes above and beyond anything we could have imagined!

Anniversary & Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is wonderful and furnished beautifully. We enjoyed the moose hunting too! We also liked the history lesson about a wilder side of our nation's history and the connection to our host. The hot tub is fabulous and it was used each night of our trip... and we only locked ourselves out once 😀 Thankfully my parents were inside and could unlock the door. The loft area was perfect for our 9 yr old girl who found it to be her private reading refuge.

It wa a great time of the year to visit Silver Dollar City, as the crowds were low and the lines were short. Sometimes we got to ride multiple times because there were no people waiting to ride when we finished- Bonus! Grab the sweet rolls when you go 😋

We rented a boat on Table Rock Lake and enjoyed a cool morning while exploring this large and deep lake. We saw our depth gauge hit 220 feet deep!. I grew up on a lake, but it was a fraction of this lake's size. The rental process is smooth and the equipment was great.

While the cabin is about 20 minutes from the attractions that we visited, it was not a deal breaker for us. The shows we saw were fantastic as was the views along our way to see them! Such gorgeous countryside that separated the cabin and Branson!

There is also a kids playground a shot distance from the cabin that our two year old and 9 year old loved to visit whenever they could. The boat is a fun element that seemed to inspire my kid's imagination.

My parents LOVED this trip and can not stop talking about how much they enjoyed everything- especially the cabin. The rental process is easy and reasonable. We will definitely do it again.

Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

We were amazed from the minute we pulled up to the cabin - my parents arrived first and already had a cozy fire in the fireplace - the decorations are lovely. There was more than enough room for all 7 of us to be comfortable with lots of community area for us to laugh and make memories - The hot tub was a lot of fun and the cabin was well stocked with DVD's, board games, and outdoor games like Frisbee golf and Boccie Ball! We have stayed a many resorts and cabins with kitchens and have never come across one more stocked than this one - It had everything we needed to make many of our meals right there in the cabin. The kids loved the close proximity to the playground area and we enjoyed being able to keep an eye on them from the back deck of the cabin. Good luck counting all the moose int he cabin, I swear the number changes every time you try! The cabin is so close to Branson it was very easy to run in each day and do a few things and then head back to the cabin for some relaxing and rest! Very peaceful - we will be staying here again!

Owner's Response: That is so awesome that you were able to enjoy many of the great features of our cabin. The number of moose does constantly change with which towels are being used to guests leaving a new moose somewhere in the cabin, etc. There's more than you think. We look forward to your next visit. Take care and God bless, Brian

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

I have rented several cabins, condos, and homes over the years and I can honestly say this was by far the nicest one I have ever stayed at. There isn't a single thing that I could have a negative comment about, including the owner who was amazing to work with, it couldn't have been easier. The cabin was totally stocked, even better than described, the location was just, just a few miles south of Branson, reallly....just the best experience I have ever had. I would recommend it as highly as possible and will be returning often. Thanks Brian for sharing your cabin with us.

Christmas at Moose Lodge

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very clean and cozy for the 9 of us. It was a great place to get together with our girls and their families. The 3 little boys took over the fun cozy loft. Everyone loved the hot tub! The cabin was very clean and were stocked with everything we needed. We cooked a fantastic fondue for Christmas dinner. The cabin décor was exceptional for Christmas. The fireplace mantle and Christmas tree were beautiful! Thanks for a lovely time!

Younger's Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at your cabin. It was everything you said it was. The beds were comfortable, nice big screen in the living room to watch the ball games on Saturday, kitchen was well stocked and the cabin overall was very comfortable. The ladies enjoyed the hot tub while we watched football. Enjoyed two great wins by the Cowboys and Sooners. Only negatives were we could have used some more TP and firewood. Ran out of both. Overall, everyone had a great time. Will definitely recommend the cabin to friends and come back for another visit.
