The room did not look like the one that I had reserved. Our patio was next to the pool, which was fine, but no privacy when sitting outside. Pool was cool and had to close the doors to keep breeze from chilling us when we used the pool.

Though dated, it is still a charming family owned property. Comfortable beds, decent free breakfast. A decent value for the weekend car cruise when Branson was so busy. Nice indoor pool, and decent outdoor pool.

Every staff member we met was very nice and polite, the ladies in the breakfast area were our favorite! The breakfast is ok, no fresh fruit and during busy times it's hard to get to items because...
