June 2017 Stay - great potential - not there yet

  • 3 of 5

We stayed here with 11 extended family members in June. There are onsite care takers who we did not call on but in hindsight should have when a lot of small things started adding up to be a nuisance. I shared the majority of maintenance items below with the owner and hope they are resolved for future guests.

The positives, a lot of space and room for our family. The kids had plenty of room and enjoyed the large theater room. The lot has a beautiful view of the lake and some great old structures that add character. Plenty of room for everyone to have their own space and decompress. The deck is nice to sit out on and enjoy nature. The first floor has a nice dining and gathering area in the living room.

The negatives, it is just not well cared for and a lack of attention to detail: 1.) the TV in the master bedroom didn't work, 2.) several lights were out in the living and dinning room. 3.) the grill was missing a roller/leg making it very unstable when cooking, 4.) after 3 of 4 sleepless nights for my wife and I on what we thought was a bad mattress, we found the cross support bar for our mattress in the basement bedroom was broken and not attached to the frame causing the mattress to sag, 5.) the workout room does not have a treadmill as shown and the weight equipment needs some TLC with some simple maintenance to make it safe to use 6.) and last an upgraded Wifi Router is needed as we were forced to use cellular data most of the time.

Recommendation to the owners for future guests. There is potential for a nice fishing spot at the bottom of the trail on the lake and possible boat dock down the road. It would be nice if there could be some branches cut back to take advantage of fishing from the bank. The yard is very nice and could be mowed back a bit farther to allow for yards games as well as the fire pit and play-set area being cleaned up a bit as they did not represent the pictures. The TV for main living space is very small for that area versus the 32 inch in the bedroom that was not functioning.

Again, I have to stress the owners were responsive and kind. In all of the VRBO's we have stayed over the years, this one just had a lot of things that simple maintenance and attention to detail would have made the stay so much better.

Very nice, well kept home. Plenty of room for 2 families to share.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay greatly at this beautiful home. Plenty of room for 10 of us to sleep and lots of extras. It was in a quiet area approximately 15-20 minutes outside of Branson. We'd stay there again if going back.

Perfect place for family & friends. You can be together or spread out!

  • 5 of 5

WE had a wonderful time at Thomas Trail. We didn't get to explore outdoors because of torrential rains but a handful made the little hike down to the lake. The house more than made up for not being able to be outdoors. We had puzzle going on in the dining area, skip-bo in the living, lovely fire in the fireplace. Great food, some that we cooked on the grill in the rain but it all worked out fantastic!

Owners and caretakers available to answer any questions promptly.

kitchen stocked well with dishes, pots and pans. if you need a specialty item you might bring it, but overall most everything you need. Plenty of linens and towels, too! We slept 11 very comfortably. The media room and foosball table was a big hit. you could barely hear it upstairs. All tastefully decorated, comfortable as soon as we walked in and so glad i found it. Would absolutely use again! Thank you for having such a wonderful was asking if we could do this again sometime.

Perfect place for a memorable vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was PERFECT for our family gathering. It was spacious, clean, and had everything we needed. The outdoor space was so much fun for the kids to run and play. We saw deer on the property, and the view of the river was beautiful. The caretaker even took the time to let us know of severe weather in the area. The owners were so flexible and accommodating. Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation experience. We will definitely try to stay here again.

Our family really enjoyed our weekend at Thomas Trails!

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay! The house was huge and easily accommodated our family of 12. We loved the large outdoor space. A walk down the the lake. Explored the old Rock cabins on the property. Great photo background! We even played a game of softball in the side yard. The grand daughters loved the dollhouse and play kitchen in the huge play room. Nice collection of books, games, puzzles and videos. The grand kids were very impressed with the "movie room". We loved the quiet property with fabulous lake view. But only a quick drive to the landing for the big girls to shop. The caregiver's live on the property, but never even knew they were around! The only problem we had.....We could only stay for the weekend! Not enough time to truly enjoy everything this property offers!
