We did a two hour walk and ended back at the restaurant sitting in front of a roaring fire with drinks in hand. Wonderful design and attention to detail in all the buildings and landscapes.

We had a great bike ride, relaxing and very beautiful; I loved all the water features. If you are in the Branson area this is a great place to see. The restaurant is nice but a little high priced.
