About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths (Sleeps 16), all King Beds, Pool Table, Dog Friendly

At Nature's Retreat, our theme is 'preppy nature' - a place to indulge and relax in the midst of the Ozark Mountains and near Table Rock Lake.

Escapes with family and friends are to taste a luxury that is absent from our everyday lives. So at Nature's Retreat, I have 'decked out' our home with many exceptional amenities:

- peaceful Ozark mountain views

- 5 bedrooms, all KING size beds, all with TV/DVD and Chromecast

- 4 full baths (master with jetted tub)

- 'zero entry' pool (a brief walk up the street, open mid May to early September)

- clubhouse with game room

- family room that includes * Big screen TV * pool table * Foosball * DVD library

- great room with cathedral ceilings * Big screen TV

- spacious back deck with grill

- nature trail

- and more...

I am very excited about my Nature's Retreat and look forward to sharing my escape with you.

The ideal place for family and friends to gather, a stay at my Nature's Retreat will make your vacation memorable.

About Tyann Marcink

When we decided to build a vacation home in Branson in 2007, we knew that the house and property that we chose would have to not only accommodate our family, but entertain them as well.

Tyann Marcink purchased this house in 2010

Why Tyann Marcink chose Hollister

So with three little boys, we searched for a place with several bedrooms, an open floor plan, and a swimming pool. We also had to have a lake view and a large deck for our enjoyment.

What makes this house unique

In Canyon Retreat we found everything we wanted and more. And to reflect my personal taste, as well as to have something completely different from the lodge and cabin decors, I decided on an Eddie Bauer or 'preppy nature' theme.

Then 3 years later, we decided to build another vacation home since Canyon Retreat is so immensely popular with other families like mine. Nature's Retreat is also in the 'preppy nature' theme and has quickly become just as popular as Canyon Retreat.

I'm excited about sharing my vacation homes with you and hope you and yours enjoy them as much as we do!

Great family rental!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home for our recent stay. My parents and my in laws enjoyed their time in Branson. We visited during the Christmas season in Branson and the Christmas decor throughout the house really added to the experience! Nature’s retreat provided just the right place for us to rest and hang out after a fun filled day at Silver Dollar City. A home away from home:)

Beautiful home.

  • 4 of 5

Everything was very clean and neat. The bedrooms were great with a bathroom for each bedroom. We did have some problems with slow drain in the bathrooms and we would have liked to have a vacuum to use on the main floor. The steps going to the front porch could use a railing as they were steep. We loved the deck on the back since it was fairly warm and sunny during the time we were there. Overall we really enjoyed our stay at a beautiful home!

Owner's Response: We love the deck in the back also! Feels so secluded amongst the tree tops surrounding it. As soon as I received your review, I sent my plumber to the house immediately to take care of the drains. If you had let me know during your stay, I could have had it done then. There is also a vacuum in the master bedroom closet for guest use. I hope you utilized the railing on the left side of the steps during your stay. I'm glad you had a great time! Tyann

Beautifully furnished and comfortable vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our group of families with young kids. We especially enjoyed the deck in the evening after a swim in the pool. The King-size beds in each bedroom are a very nice touch, as are the wifi connection and Chromecast in every room!
