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.

Tyann Marcink

Warm, comfy, cozy, fun, beautiful!! This was an all in one, home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were wanting to get away and relax after the busy holidays. We couldn’t have been happier with our stay at Nature’s Retreat! There was no need to bring anything other then our personal things and food, everything we would need from home was already there! There was plenty of room yet very cozy with real comfortable beds!! Entertainment with a pool table, foosball and other games to play. So much privacy yet just minutes away from restaurants and all the fun stuff to do in Branson. The owner, Tyann, was so easy to work out the details of our stay and always quick to respond. It was nice knowing she’d be quick to respond if we had any problems. We didn’t want to leave and can’t wait to go back!!

Beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful home, warm and welcoming, with a Christmas wreath on the door and decorated Christmas tree in the living room. That personal touch made it home away from home. We highly recommend this vacation rental.

Christmas time family get together

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 had an awesome time at this house. The kids loved the pool and foosball tables and with the 5 bedrooms we all had some private space. Though we were there at Christmastime we would love the home in the summer with the nearby pool and deck. We requested a repair from the owner and she had it taken care of very quickly. We will stay there again!

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!
