About John Gage

I am a school teacher and coach baseball and softball. My wife and I have 3 children and we currently live in the Kansas City, MO area. I grew up in Southwest Missouri and my wife in Kansas City.

John Gage purchased this house in 2015

Why John Gage chose Hollister

We have vacationed in the Branson area for the last 25 years and have finally purchased a vacation home that will accommodate our family. We stayed in the Branson Canyon area one fall and fell in love with it. This home will allow us and those who rent it to enjoy the Branson area for many years to come!

What makes this house unique

With 3 children and eventually their families, this home can accommodate all of us with also some of their friends and family members. This house is close to the Branson Landing, Table Rock Lake, and Silver Dollar City, but still has a lodge type of appeal.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We celebrated Grandpa's 80th birthday and had a family reunion. We rode the ducks, went to see Jonah at Sight and Sound and played putt putt. The best time was spending time with family.

Best home we've stayed at!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we stepped foot inside we knew we picked the right place! My dad had always taken me as a child and my brother and sister to Table Rock Lake & Branson. And my husband & I have carried on this family tradition of going to Table Rock Lake and Branson. We have stayed in several different locations because we have never really just fell in love with the location or felt at home. We absolutely LOVED this home. It was so beautiful and loved the two living rooms. Our sons play video games till early morning and they did that in the downstairs living room!! Never bothered us one bit! The only thing we missed and would really look for would be recliners. My husband & I have bad backs and he has to have one in the mornings to sit up and get heat on his back and neck to get his body to release the tension to be able to really enjoy the day. It cost him & I a lot of misery and made us miss home more and more. I sleep in an adjustable bed but these beds were so comfortable that I was able to use pillows to make myself comfortable enough to sleep. Grandkids loved the open floors. We will be back! Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful home!! I cleaned upstairs as good as I could to where all the house keeper had to do was clean the bedding and the bathrooms. Floors were vacummed and towels were all washed and put up but one towel and rag. We really appreciated how neat and clean the home was when we got there and wanted to let you know we took great care of your home! Thanks again!

Beautiful home is a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We brought our whole family and there was plenty of room. I loved having a bathroom for every bedroom. It made getting ready in the morning so much easier! The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pans, utensils, etc. - everything you need. The pool is zero entry which made it easier for the little ones. And you are only a couple miles from State Park Marina and Table Rock Lake. Also, the owner was always quick to respond if we had any questions before we came and during our stay. We would definitely rent this house again!

The house and property were awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this vacation rental! It felt like home away from home! The spacious layout was perfect for 5 couples-very neat and clean. We enjoyed the back patio deck where we sipped on coffee and tea in the mornings before our day activities began. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone vacationing in Branson!

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

Renting Hawks Nest was a breeze! I enjoyed dealing with John who usually got back to me within minutes of texting or emailing. We followed John's directions and had no trouble finding the house. The door is code locked so there is no key to find or possibly lose. The house itself is a new build with a beautiful outdoor decoration theme that continues throughout. It was very clean and so well stocked that it surprised me! Kleenex, paper towels, toilet paper, soap and hand soup were things we forgot, but were already in the house. There are two bedrooms and two baths upstairs as well as three bedrooms down with another two bathrooms (one was a Jack and Jill style). The area is beautiful and just a short drive from Branson Landing. I was seriously impressed with the home and we will certainly stay there again. The only downside I could find was the steep driveway to the home. My 83 year old Mother was able to come and go ,but always with the help of a strong arm. The Ozarks are full of these homes built into the hills, so we knew the driveway would be steep. I highly recommend the Gage's and their beautiful Hawks Nest!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This home was wonderful. Our entire family of 16 had plenty of room. The location is excellent. The pool is just a short walk from the house. There is extra parking ( we had 4 cars ) next to the clubhouse. The entertainment in Branson was a short drive away. Our family can definitely recommend this beautiful property.
