About Charles or Brenda Chodrick

Brenda & I live in Enid, Ok. She is a Registered Nurse and I am a retired Police Officer, & retired DL Examiner for the State of Ok. We have 7 children and 13 grandchildren. We love our home in Oklahoma, but Missouri is our second home and enjoy it very much. We come as often as possible and would come more if we could. As many that visit the Branson area, we love our God, our Country, and our Family.

Charles or Brenda Chodrick purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Charles or Brenda Chodrick chose Ridgedale

We have loved the Branson area for years and Brenda grew up about 2 hrs. from Branson. Branson is a booming area with lots of opportunity and even in a down economy people still come to Branson. It just seems to be one of the most wholesome, patriotic places in the country.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Brenda and Charles,

We have had a marvelous time here. Thank you so much for allowing us to be here. There was such a peace here when we walked in. Yes, this house is truly a blessing and we pray that God continues to bless you and your family.

It was wonderful to have met you all at your new cabin. I can certainly see that God has Blessed yur family with the gift of Hospitality.

This stay was the first family Reuion and everyone enjoyed themselves immensely. We had 7 adults and 5 kids. While the adults enjoyed the books, the kids enjoyed the pool table and air hockey.

It's sad to leave, but we will be back

Outstanding Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this log home for a family gathering after Christmas for five days. Our experience here could not have been better. The six flat-screen TVs, the pool table, the air hockey and the two jacuzzi tubs made everybody happy. The owners had even beautifully decorated the place for Christmas. The beds were great, and it even snowed for us overnight once, giving us a white Christmas. It was very nice of the owners to arrange this snowfall!

Amazingly beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the Wilderness Retreat Cabin. It’s located in a very peaceful tree lined setting with a short distance to Branson. We really enjoyed coming back to the cabin to relax and play pool after our full days in Branson. The cabin was well equipped and accommodated all our family’s needs. The Wilderness Retreat Cabin was all that we had hoped for in our stay in Branson. We’ll be back!! :)

Family of 9 already planning the next trip

  • 5 of 5

This trip was our 6th year in a row of visiting Branson and we have stayed at numerous places. This cabin will be the only place we stay from now on. The property was very clean and the owner even called on our second day just to make sure everything was going well. We had 7 adults and 2 children in our party and never felt cramped in the cabin. There is plenty of room to spread out with the game room downstairs or the great room upstairs plus the 4 bedrooms. We always go to Silver Dollar City, the drive from this cabin is only about 15 minutes so it's out of the way of the main strip but not too far.

Couples weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I, along with 2 other couples stayed in this lovely cabin while attending a conference in Springfield. A unexpected ice storm came on the day we were to arrive. The owner was so nice & told us if we could not arrive they would not charge us for that 1st night. We did however arrive with no problems. The drive way is a little down hill which was a little tricky to walk down with the ice but the owners have caretakers that brought salt to sprinkle on steps & porch which melted the ice. The cabin is so spacious & the fireplace made it so cozy. This cabin would be great for a large family. Kids would love the pool table & air hockey table. We loved staying here & would certainly book it again without any hesitation!

Owner's Response: We are so happy your couples weekend was a success in spite of the weather. You were brave to plan a February outing in Missouri, but we are so glad you did and glad you chose our cabin. Thank you so much for taking time to write and let us know you enjoyed the cabin. I forwarded your message to Mary to let her know the ice melt was appreciated. We had a feeling it might come in very handy someday. We hope you come back sometime very soon! (Maybe in the summer and enjoy the pool instead of the ice. ha) Blessings to you, Brenda and Charles

Excellant Family Time

  • 5 of 5

Great place for our family get together. We have been going to Branson with our children, their spouses and now grand children for many years. This was by far the most enjoyable because of the beautiful weather and the fine place we stayed. The Wilderness retreat was perfect. Away from everything and not too far from things. Enjoyed cooking out and eating in. Very much enjoyed the game room with the air hockey and Pool table. Will be looking forward to our next trip. Cody's Place was great.

We are about 10 mins south of the Branson Strip and Landing, about 2 miles from Table Rock Lake, and just south of the Big Cedar Lodge. The blue marker on the map showing where our house is located has been totally misplaced by HomeAway, not sure how they came up with that location. Our place is located south of the Moose Canyon Lodge.
