This location is ideal if you want easy access to Branson shows and shopping without the boxed-in feeling of a condo. This single-family home, built in 2005, is a two-level cottage in a neighborhood with plenty of trees, wildlife, and quiet. It has lots of decks and windows so you can enjoy the natural setting. And it’s convenient to all that Branson has to offer. Three miles to College of the Ozarks, three miles to State Park Marina, 5.6 miles to the Branson strip, and eleven miles to Branson Airport. All on roads well-isolated from traffic on the strip. The home is well lit, and well-furnished. It is maintained by the owner. Amenities include a queen-sized bed, two twin beds, gas fireplace, bubble-jet tub, separate shower, five TV's including a 42' plasma TV (including cable channels), and wireless Internet access. The kitchen is fully equipped. Windows, skylights, and French doors invite the outside in. With the master bedroom upstairs and a second bedroom on the lower level, the house is well suited for guests who want two separate living and sleeping areas with shared kitchen space.
Active families, perhaps including pets, should enjoy staying here. Due to the natural setting, the home is not suitable for people who cannot comfortably walk a few steps or uneven ground. French doors from the upper-level living room and master bedroom open to the “morning deck” with a small table and seating for two. This deck faces east – perfect for enjoying the sunrise with morning coffee. It’s also a pleasant area to comfortably gaze at the stars before bedtime. When the weather is right, you can see fog rising off the creek just beyond the trees backing the property. Another set of French doors open from the upper-level dining room to a “tree house deck”. This south-facing deck offers relaxing, shaded outside dining for up to six people. Off the kitchen, a west-facing, covered, front porch provides a swing for two and seating for five around fire pots in the front yard. This area is mostly shaded with tall trees and old hanging grape vines – perfect for enjoying a cool breeze and glass of wine while dinner is cooking on the grill. This area is the front yard, but traffic is very light, so you can relax quietly with only the sound of the water running through the old iron pump into the goldfish/lily pool or the breeze blowing through the tall pines across the road. The lower-level family room opens to a covered deck that’s perfect for a nap in the hammock. This deck is also ideal for enjoying a quiet visit while resting in one of the two rocking chairs.
The front yard is canopied with oaks, hanging grape vines, and a weeping willow tree. There are no sidewalks and the lawn is not manicured – the entries to the house include bridges, paths, and about 5 steps so bring your comfy walking shoes. The graveled parking area is entered by a short driveway. The parking area has enough space for an RV, but RV utility connections are not currently available. An Indian nutting stone, tomahawk, arrowheads and chips have been found around the back ridge, so keep your eyes open when you are out walking. If you bring your children, there is a private play set and tree swing out back. If you have a pet, there are natural and wooded areas for walking.
VRBO #639254, neighboring property, may be available if your dates are not available here.

Easy 'no traffic' access to Branson and the Lakes
Easy access to Branson, peaceful country setting well-isolated from traffic of strip.
What a beautiful place you have! We have been many places and have to say this place is special. Love the chickens too. Your place is well stocked. Yes . . . . . we would come back :) God Bless Love the "non-smoking"
We enjoyed our stay at this home in Branson. It was very clean and Elaine was very easy to contact. We would definitely stay here again.
This is our second time staying here and we already have our third visit scheduled this Spring. Very comfortable, clean rental. Elaine proactively reached out to me when there was supposed to be an ice storm telling me to not worry about getting out by checkout time and that we could stay then next night if the weather was bad. We were all ready to be snowed in the next day, we all said we were dissapointed when we could get out the next day, as we were looking forward to lounging around all day enjoying the house. Wonderful house and you can't ask for a better host.
We really enjoyed our stay especially the view from the decks and large bathtub. We had a very relaxing time. This is a great place to stay and the owner was very helpful.
We enjoyed the home very much. The sky lights lite up the rooms. The home was decorated nicely. The master bathroom was big and had everything needed, along with the master bedroom. The whole house was great, would recommend it to anyone. The kitchen an dining room was everything we needed. The downstairs was the same. Would stay again.
This is a beautiful home!!! Has a well stocked kitchen with everything you need. Close to Branson and all the activities, but tucked in a quite wooded neighborhood. We really appreciated Elaine letting us bring our two dogs. Looking forward to staying here again in the future!!
