About The Owner

Mike and Darla/ My husband and I have been married for 38 years. We have 3 children and 7 grandchildren, 6 years of age and under. We have always dreamed of owning a log home. Mike is retired from General Motors but we continue to work running our rental property business.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2009

Why The Owner chose Ridgedale

We have frequently vacationed around Table Rock Lake and Branson over the last 30 years. When we saw this cabin and its surroundings we fell in love with it. My husband loves to fish and hunt and explore all the hills and valleys. Combine a log home with that and he is in hog heaven!

What makes this cabin unique

This quiet home away from home has something for everyone. Your memorable stay can be curled up in front of the fire with a good book or attending shows in the best live entertainment capital of the world. For the outdoorsman, hunting or fishing on Table Rock Lake is only 2 miles from your door. For the kids, Amusement and Wildlife Parks are nearby. Whether its a vacation, family reunion or professional retreat, you can't go wrong here!

Lovely Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Let me first say.......yes, we enjoyed our stay.

The cabin was beautiful. Very tastefully decorated and cozy. The view was great as we could watch our family play together.

I would like to inform you of a couple of negative things:

1. When we arrived (it was dark), the code would not open the door. Fortunately, my granddaughter was persistent and after ten or more tries, it finally opened. What would we have done had the door not opened and there was no one on the property to help us? By the way, we had to leave the back door unlocked so as to ensure our ability to enter the cabin.

2. The heating system was so loud (and situated in the master bedroom) that It would wake me up whenever it went on. Wondering if some kind of sound-barrier could be put in place?

3. The cleaning staff was at work on the cabin next to ours and they had a large German Shepherd who was running loose. He/she could have made minced-meat out of my small dog .

4. My daughter went to get a spoon from the "clean" silverware and discovered several spoons with dried material (?) on the back of the spoons. Perhaps the cleaning personnel should check this drawer to be sure the renters didn't leave dirty silverware in it.

These comments are not made in anger, only meant to help.

Again, we loved the cabin and all in all had a very enjoyable time.

Owner's Response: Gladys, I am truly glad that you enjoyed your stay! I am sorry that you had trouble with the door lock. I have in the "Welcome" information that you need to hold the door knob toward you as you enter the code. Although it seems as if no one is there, my staff is always within minutes of being there to assist you. There are back up keys available to open the door. The heating system is a heat pump. We all notice sounds a lot more when in a different place than your home where you are used to all of its noises. I'm sure you know that you cannot insulate an outdoor unit, it has to have air flow. Once you get used to the sound, it is not noticeable. I do not own the cabin next to the one you were in, so that was not my cleaning staff next door. The cabins are individually owned & managed. The large dog should have been on a leash. The cleaning staff should check for items that are not up to standard. I will caution them to inspect more carefully. It is unfortunate that other guests put things away in that condition. Thank you for the information. I am always looking for ways to improve my guest's experience.

Spring break

  • 3 of 5

My sister and I took our four kids to stay in the cabin for a long weekend. Unfortunately we had several issues during our stay. Check in time is at 3:00 but the housecleaner wasn't finished until 4:15. Also, while she was there, a plumber was fixing the hot water heater. She left us with a load of wet towels in the dryer and also said the cable TV was out in the main room and that the repairman would be by the next day between 2-4. I called Darla and she apologized and told me Joe (head of the cleaning company) would be there to let the cable man into the unit. She also offered to credit us one night's stay for the inconvenience.

The next day we returned to the cabin around 2:30 to find the front door wide open and the cable man working. Joe was no where to be found and the cable man told me the owner gave him the door code. I texted Darla and she denied knowing anything about this. This was very concerning to me as we had left all of our belongings there. The cable man worked for about an hour repairing a cut line and also tried to help us get internet that was usable (Darla has a very cheap router that was worthless).

After this issue, we discovered that the last renters' dirty dishes were left in the sink. In fact, most of the dishes in the cabinets were dirty.

Darla also told me that the front door would be coded for us but that didn't happen. Instead, when I called her the first night (when we were locked out with four kids), she gave me the master code.

A circuit blew in the hall bathroom (we didn't even have anything plugged in) and I texted her about it. She never responded.

Overall, the cabin has a lot of potential but management really needs to get on the ball.

Owner's Response: Stephanie, I sincerely apologize that you had these issues. I agree that this is unacceptable. I have refunded you one night’s stay. I drove six hours straight from my home that day, to get to the cabins to resolve these issues. The very first thing I did was fire the entire cleaning company which was called ”Maid To Clean”. This was a company I had only been using for a short time. They knew all cabins were to be ready for check in at 3:00. This cabin should have been cleaned two days earlier when the last guest there checked out. If they had done it then when they should have, and honestly filled out the checklist that I required of them, all of these issues could have been resolved before your arrival. Joe or one of his staff, should have been there to open the door for the cable company. He should not have given them the code over the phone. Setting the door code was also the responsibility of the cleaning staff. Joe and Ammie (owners of the cleaning co.) filled out and sent me a checklist saying this had been done. The message about the breaker must have come while I was interviewing a new cleaning staff. After the meeting when I saw the message, I returned your call with no answer, so I immediately went to your cabin to see about it for you. Everything was working fine, so it was either the GFI in the bathroom or a circuit breaker. I left a voicemail on your phone telling you that I had checked it. No one has ever had trouble with the router before, but I will replace it. I am the owner of the cabin, not management, and I take the responsibility of providing a pleasant stay for my guests very seriously. Finding good help is truly not easy. I have hired a cleaning staff that came highly recommended and has many years of experience. I have been checking behind the new staff all this week and I can assure you that these issues will not happen again! Darla

A pleasant time had all around (mostly)

  • 4 of 5

My first impression driving up was mixed. The scenery was nice and the cabins were charming and rustics. The only thing that I thought was super tacky were some of the cabins had prominent signs on the front advertising websites where a person could rent the cabin. Personally, when I rent a vacation home, I don’t like being reminded that I am tourist and people around us are tourist. The parking was easy and we had plenty of room for our 2 cars. The location was close enough to Branson that we could go to attractions without a long drive but far enough out that we were obviously in the country. Tip, if you don’t mind back roads, the best way to get into Branson and not get stuck forever in traffic is to take 265 and not 65!

The interior cabin was great. It was decorated in cowboy style and was roomy and comfortable for the 7 of us. BTW, the pull out bed is pretty hard so be sure to put your kids on that and leave the other beds for the oldsters. We were in the main bedroom and that bed was comfy.

Now to my two biggest gripes.

First, the 2 grills. They are disgusting! They were filthy (one grill had left over chicken pieces) and caked with grease. And to top it off, they were literally falling apart. There is no excuse to have those abominations on the rear deck. We could not control the heat on either grill and in fact the other grill’s burner was broken and could not hold a flame (outside of flames coming out at the base of the burner element. I could really really rant on this since we had bought food for a couple nights of cooking on the grill. If you are into grilling, I highly recommend you talk to the owners to see if they have replaced them.

Second, the pond needs to be dredged and cleaned up. There are a billion frogs; it’s scummed over with algae and is not particularly picturesque up close. You are not going to want to spend a lot of time near it, though the kiddos may enjoy the frogs.

Overall, we had a pleasant experience except for the issues noted above.

Owner's Response: We are sorry you had a problem with the grills. We have replaced the burners. The grates are cleaned and in good shape. We have also changed cleaning staff. We try our best to keep issues such as this from happening.

Perfect Vacation Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our 2 night stay was perfect, the cabin met our needs, nicely furnished and the pool directly behind the cabin was awesome. The perfect location only 15 minutes from the Landing and just a couple minutes from Top of the Rock. I travel multiple times a year and have rented many vacation homes through VRBO this cabin rates very high, met all expectations. I plan to book this cabin again in the future.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cabin for my 50th birthday. Had a group of 5 adults and two small children and one dog. I have to say it was perfect! The cabin was beautiful and sits very close to the pool and other outdoor activities. We were close to everything (fishing, the Branson strip, the lake) and yet out of the craziness of the 76 strip. Darla was great to work with, she was available before and during our stay to answer any questions that we had. We loved that the cabin had a washer and dryer! We will definitely stay here any time that we are going to Branson and would highly recommend this rental for families or larger groups traveling to that area
