What a great place

  • 5 of 5

We were in the Pennsylvania Room. It was one of the nicest rooms we have experienced in our many stays of Bed and Breakfasts. There was everything in the room that you could want Rick was very warm and welcoming and made us feel comfortable. The bed was great the view was great and we just loved walking down by the shore and on the boat dock. If I come to Branson again I will definitely stay at Red Bud Cove.

This is a awesome B&B. One of the best we have ever stayed in. Spotless (rooms and property), so accommodating, great food, right on the lake. In a great area, south side of Branson just off Hwy 65.

Great 1st B&B visit!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time for my wife & I to visit a B & B. We could not have picked a better one. The area is beautiful, right on Table Rock Lake. It is very quiet & peaceful. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Service outstanding. Rick is a great cook! It was great getting to meet some interesting people in a cozy setting. We will definitely return.

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The location was fantastic, close to the busyness of Branson but far enough out away from the busyness of Branson. The place was so quiet and relaxing. Will definitely be back.
