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
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.
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

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!
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.
This is our 2nd time to stay in this cabin and it is amazing! It accommodates our family for our Christmas celebration! Always clean, kitchen stocked, plenty of wood for the fireplace, not far from town and the environment is the most relaxing and peaceful place ever!
We loved staying at the cabin with all the comforts of home. The dining table was large enough for our whole family to sit and play games together, something we could never do staying at a hotel. Loved the back porch to sit on and relax in the mornings and having a grill was very nice. The only negative thing I can say is that one king size bed was a little bit worn, but still as good as some of the hotels we have stayed in. We were able to use the fireplace each night and firewood was provided. The bathrooms were very nice also with large tubs in 2 of them. The kids loved playing pool downstairs. Overall, it was an excellent vacation spot and well worth the money!
The "Wilderness Retreat" cabin is clearly not just a rental property for the owners. Great care has been taken to decorate and furnish the cabin home with every possible amenity any vacationer would need to meet the needs of every age.
We traveled with 2 adults and 3 children, two of which are teenagers. Not only did everyone have their own bedroom, but there were also areas for everyone to unwind after long, exhausting days of sightseeing. The kids loved the downstairs gaming area, which includes a pool table, full-sized air hockey table, and video games with a TV, not to mention plenty of comfortable seating. Meanwhile, we "grown ups" enjoyed being upstairs in the family room area, again with comfortable seating and a television. We were only disappointed that the weather remained a bit too hot to enjoy the outdoor seating (deck chairs upstairs, a swing downstairs, and even some rocking chairs on the front porch!).
The location was also ideal - close enough to be convenient, but far enough away to escape the commotion of Branson. It truly was a "Retreat" to return to the cabin instead of a cramped hotel room.
We used the kitchen less than we had planned, although I did make breakfasts frequently during our 8-night stay. There certainly was every pot, pan, dish, and utensil I would have needed to make any meal though.
Even the bathrooms were stocked with extras such as bath products, lotions, and powders.
The front door is secured with a key pad, and the area in general felt very safe. There were other cabins along the street (although reasonably spaced), with little, but enough traffic to feel we were not isolated.
Finally, I can not boast enough about how accommodating the owners were. They provided lists and information about the area, and were always friendly and helpful when replying to emails. With good reason, they take high pride in their vacation cabins. We've only been home a week, and I've already recommended their cabins to several coworkers! :-)
There were four couples. The home was well beyond our expectations. The amenities exceeded our hopes. The home was clean, the bedding and towels crisp and fresh. The HVAC managed superbly the hot days. The location is perfect because you may enjoy the rural surroundings while being only eight miles from downtown Branson. The owners are friendly and Christian in their attitudes. With an upper and lower deck, you can get away from others or join as your desires dictate. The game room included a regulation size pool table and air hockey game. The kitchen was amply sized with plenty of storage for our food and beverages for the week. We saw four shows in Branson. Did a fair amount of shopping (the old five and dime is a hoot). Found several shops whose wares were from local artisans. We cannot say enough positive things about the rental and its ambience. It felt as if we were being welcomed home.
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.
