We rented the "Old West Cabin" from www.bransonweekend.com for a week in July to vacation in the Branson area and we absolutely loved it! The owners and their staff do a fantastic job of taking care of the property, when we arrived and walked in the cabin was spotless and looked exactly like the pictures on the internet! On the website they provide an extensive list of everything in the cabin so you don't have to pack kitchen items. Nice strong air conditioner which we needed since it was in the 90s all week! We like renting vacation places will full kitchens so we can cook and save money on dining. There is a super Walmart about 5 minutes away and we also really liked cooking on the grill that was provided (although my father in law and I had to get used to cooking with charcoal instead of gas!).
If you're a Silver Dollar City fan you will love the location of these properties as they are only about a mile away, and to the north, so that when all the Branson area traffic heads towards the park in the morning, unlike them, you can take a quick right at the traffic light into the park. The tradeoff of course is that you have about a 15 minute drive to the strip in Branson, but we actually enjoyed being away from the bustle and constant traffic jam that lines the strip (Hwy 76) most of the summer.
Multiple, very nice pools with shaded picnic tables, bathrooms, and a grill. Nice trail down to Notch Lake, but be warned, it's a fairly tough hike! We had temps in the 90s all week and it was a little too steep and risky (trail is lots of loose gravel and rocks) for my 6-year old daughter and wife. Free catch & release fishing at the lake though (don't need a license or permit), if you can make it down there. :)
Only minor quibbles we had were that we felt our bed was pretty firm and uncomfortable for our tastes and in one of the bathrooms the left sink drain plug was stuck shut. Not a huge deal since it was a double sink; we just used the other one during our stay. I told the owner and I'm sure it will be repaired soon if it's not done already.
Loved our stay and I'm sure if we ever decide to hit Branson again we will be staying there again! Also, I read the review by robert g titled "Choose elsewhere" and I have a hard time believing it's legit. Can't imagine the staff allowing one of the properties to have dirty sheets and nasty smells, but perhaps there was a screwup and his property wasn't cleaned or something...the rest of the reviews were more like our experience.
