6 BED, 5 BATH, close to Table Rock Lake with tons of amenities

Make some great memories with your family and friends in our newly-built lodge in Branson Canyon that will accommodate 16 people. The lodge is located in a quiet countryside setting yet near enough to enjoy the popular Branson sites.

The attraction-packed 76 Strip and Branson Landing are only 10 minutes away. Scenic Table Rock Lake and the public boat launch is less than a mile away. The Branson Airport is just 8 minutes away and several golf courses are nearby.

You will enjoy our professionally decorated lodge. It has 6 bedrooms, theater room, fireside room and much more for your pleasure. The 6 bedrooms consist of 3 King beds and 3 Queen beds; 3 queen air mattresses are available for extra guests. You will get a restful sleep on our premium Simmons Beautyrest mattresses, Egyptian cotton sheets and comfortable pillows. Each bedroom has a 40 inch flat screen TV set up with NETFLIX and local cable.

The main level has an open concept kitchen, dining, and great room. This area includes a 2 story stone fireplace, hand-scraped hardwood floors, and vaulted ceilings with wood trim. From the great room view the private scenic backyard overlooking the nature trail and creek.

The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, granite island and countertops, and spacious pantry. The island offers a great place to prepare food as well as provides seating for four. The kitchen is professionally furnished with Food Network cookware, Kueriq coffee machine, and every appliance possible. The dining area has a table for eight and a high chair is available, if needed.

The Great Room has two leather couches to enjoy the stone fireplace and a 55 inch LCD/3D TV. Just off the Great Room is a screened-in deck to eat meals or enjoy the private scenic view.

The main level has two bedrooms. The Master Suite has a king size bed with a bathroom that includes a jetted tub, walk-in shower, double sink vanity, and walk-in closet. The other bedroom has a king size bed with a full bath.

An open staircase leads to the upper level which has two bedrooms with queen size beds. These two bedrooms share a full size bath.

A second open staircase takes you to the lower level where you will enter an amazing theater room. It has comfortable theater seating with a 70 inch LCD/3D TV and an awesome sound system. Select free movies from NETFLIX and Blue Ray DVD player is available if you desire. In the back of the theater room is a counter height game table for your family to enjoy board games, puzzles, or card games. The compartment under the gaming table is loaded with games.

Also on the lower level is a Storm Safe Shelter large enough for all house guests, laundry room with large capacity washer and dryer, and two bedrooms. One bedroom has a king size bed, walk-in closet, and a full bath. The other bedroom has a queen size bed and a full bath.

Just off the theater room is a lower level screened-in deck to relax and enjoy nature. The screened-in deck leads to a patio with deluxe gas grill to fix your best burgers, steaks, or chicken.

While outside, enjoy the nature this lodge offers. On one side of the lodge is a hillside artesian well and behind the lodge is a nature trail. Our lodge is located in beautiful Branson Canyon. Guests may use the community clubhouse which has a pool table, media room, exercise room, outdoor zero entry pool (open May-September).

This is a great place to create some memories year after year.

About Bob Gruenewald

We are from central Illinois and have been coming to the Branson/Table Rock Lake area for years with our family. It has been a place of many great memories over the years. We loved it so much, we decided to settle in and build a home so we can visit more often.

Bob Gruenewald purchased this house in 2012

Why Bob Gruenewald chose Table Rock Lake

This home is in the absolute perfect location. It is not far off the highway, quiet, scenic and very close to the lake...yet it is just minutes from amazing golfing, live entertainment, Silver Dollar City, fun family activites, and great shopping.

What makes this house unique

We built this home so all of our family and grandchildren could stay, eat and play together. It is a very open design, yet having three floors, two covered porches, a theater room and 8 television allows there to be something for everyone when the kids and grandkids come and stay.

Beautiful property. Completely comfortable home for a family of 16!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed are stay at this home! The owners thought of everything when stocking the home. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook all our meals for the 5 days we stayed. The bedrooms are all very comfortable. We had plenty of room for everyone. We especially enjoyed the basement with the theatre chairs and the huge TV! The table in the basement was great for playing games.

We spent a lot of time on the screened in porch. It was wonderful having coffee out there in the mornings while it was raining

Thank you so much

This house was great for our large family!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Bob's house. It had plenty of bedrooms, bathrooms, living areas, places to sit and eat and play games for our large family. It was also the most well stocked house we have ever vacationed in - plenty of dishes, dishwasher soap, hand soap, toilet paper, laundry soap, baby gates, high chair, family friendly DVD's. Plus it was clean! A huge bonus. Overall, an awesome vacation home.

Very nice house

  • 5 of 5

House was very clean; nice quiet area away from the hustle and bustle of Branson; most things in Branson are less than 1/2 hour away so not a big deal; pool is a nice walk up and down hill so probably best to plan on driving to it with kids; 5 bathrooms for 6 bedrooms was very nice and convenient; overall great experience

Owner's Response: Jerry, Thanks for sharing your experience with others interested in visiting Branson. It takes about 10 minutes to get to the strip (highway 76), then depending on what you plan to see on the strip will add a few minutes. You can have a great vacation and avoid most of the traffic if you desire. The pool by the clubhouse is a top notch zero entry pool that you should definitely consider enjoying. Glad to hear you had a great time; hope to see you back next year. Bob and Linda

Wonderful experience at Branson Trailside Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family recently gathered at the Branson Trailside Lodge in order to celebrate our parents 60th wedding anniversary. It was the perfect place for spending time together as a family while visiting the Branson area. The home was modern, clean, and spacious. The many amenities such as the screened porch, theater room, fully-equipped kitchen, and great room provided space for all tastes, and there were comfortable beds in 6 bedrooms for good nights of rest. Most importantly, it provided a relaxing environment for my parents to be with loved ones for this important family event. I think I speak for all those present that this was a top-notch facility and that if we return to the Branson area, we will definitely want to stay there again.

Shawn Messer, and the Messer Family.

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

My dad is 82 and my siblings and I wanted to have a get-a-way to create some memories while he is still able to travel. We came from MO, IL, and TX. There were five of us plus our spouses and Dad (11). It was perfect for us. I highly recommend this for any groups that want a comfortable and roomy location. Don was great to work with. We look forward to scheduling this agains for next year.

Owner's Response: Marenda, thanks for sharing your review with others. Glad the home worked well for your family to create some lasting memories. The home only has two steps to access the main level of the home. We do have one set of stairs to the upper level and one set to the lower level where the theater room is located. Please check us out for your next Branson vacation. Bob & Linda
