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 Table Rock Lake

We have vacationed in the Branson area for the last 23 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.

Hawks Nest home, Branson, Mo.

  • 5 of 5

Very beautiful family friendly home. We had nine people staying (my husband and I, our two children and their spouses, and 3 grandkids), and there was room for us to be together and space for alone time if you wanted it. The home was very clean and the Gages where very easy to work with. We are already talking about going back. The best family vacation ever. I would highly recommend this home..

great house for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful home. The description on the listing was spot-on! It was beautiful, very well maintained, lovely landscaping. John and Trish welcomed us with mixes to make cookies and muffins! Due to a storm, they had to replace tvs both upstairs and down and they were prompt and efficient. We enjoyed the space and time company! Thanks for a great week!..We would definitely recommend this home..

Wonderful Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

John and Trish were WONDERFUL home owners and the property was fabulous! We spent just under a week at the home and all adults and kiddos had a wonderful time and we all had space to be together but to also get away from one another! The first night we were in the house we had a bad thunderstorm the blew 4 of the tvs in the house :( John and Trish drove down the next day to replace all the TVs that were affected! We truly appreciate everything they did for us before, during and after our stay. I would recommend them and this house to anyone looking for a great rental just outside of Branson!

Amazing place to get away!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 stayed here right after Christmas. The Christmas decorations were so lovely. After a crazy Christmas season , We all needed a place to unplug and renew! The kitchen was the best stocked kitchen of any rental we have ever stayed in. Plenty of room for all! Thank you for sharing your warm and inviting home with us! May God bless you and your family.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I absolutely LOVED the Hawk's Nest! For years, we've talked about a "Girl's Getaway", and this year, we made it happen! The Hawk's Nest was the perfect location with all the comforts of home! The spacious layout and amenities created a great atmosphere for visiting, cooking together, playing games and enjoying a movie as a group. The large table comfortably seated all nine of us, with room for more! The kitchen is very well equipped, with all the necessary tools to create yummy meals to enjoy together. The Hawk's Nest's location is beautiful! We were close enough to shopping, restaurants, and other Branson entertainment and busy-ness, yet far enough away to feel like we were at a remote retreat. Our stay was so relaxing, that we wanted to stay longer! We've already requested reservations for next year's trip!

Girls' Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Thank you John and your family for opening your home. Your home is beautiful, convenient to the local sites we wanted to visit and comfortable just to sit and relax in. 9 of us laughed, ate, played games, and just enjoyed being together. We loved the big table and all the conveniences you provided like comfortable beds and a well stocked kitchen. We hope our trip to the Hawk's Nest becomes an annual event!! See you next year!
