Stayed in one of the pet-friendly chalets. Away from the traffic,and a great porch with rockers. Shade,birds,and even a deer!Would be great for Silver Dollar City visitors,but close enough to Branson and Branson West and the restaurants and shopping. Looks like they are in the process of updating the place,and what they are doing is good,and I'm sure they will continue to make it even better. Place is AMERICAN owned,very clean,and homey----and the family of owners and managers are VERY nice people.Have a very nice little pool and hot tub,but too cool for use when we were there. Doesn't cost an arm and leg to stay,either. Little old-style---but a good place to stay. Pets loved it,too!

Room Tip: Chalets face the back and woods, and are away from the road. Very peaceful. Young kids would probabl...

Lynette S, Thank you for taking the time to pass along kind words about us. Thank you especially for pointing out our variety of accommodations. Our guests sometimes say that Golden Arrow is like two resorts in one - the rooms and suites that are close to the action at the pool and playground, and the chalets, where the feeling is a little more private and close to nature. We rely ion TripAdvisor reviews like your so let us know how we're doing, and as we do renovations later this season our focus will be directed toward improving our room and cabin amenities.

Very thankful to Dave Gillen & the co-owners for their clear & prompt communication, clean and comfortable lodging, the pool/hot tub, grill etc and for keeping it very reasonably priced for our big family. We stay at Golden Arrow every 2-3 years when we are stateside & we've never been disappointed. Great setting next to the woods at Table Rock Lake, quite and peaceful, even saw deer in the mornings.

Room Tip: Cabin 117 and also the Chalet give great views from their decks of the woods and deer in the morning...

ufasc, Thank you for your thoughtful words. We are truly blessed with an environment that is relaxing to so many visitors and wildlife. Our location allows guests to be moments from the lake and surrounding woods, and at the same time just minutes from Silver Dollar City and Branson's shows, shopping and attractions. We are glad that your family enjoyed their stay, and hope to see you again in another couple of years.

if you're looking for luxury, this is not the place for you. But if you want quiet, clean, economical and relaxing Golden Arrow fits the bill. We stayed in a cottage (chalet) it was spacious and clean with a great covered deck. It was very quiet and private. Yes a bit dated but hey its a cottage, brought back my childhood memories. Much more comfortable than a hotel room. The pool was sparkling clean and our girls enjoyed the slide. We could bring our small dog for 10.00 extra. overall a great relaxing week.

Dear fabshack, thank you for your time and your thoughtful words. I couldn't have said it better. You make a point that I think speaks to every prospective traveler when he or she is considering an affordable vacation: "What is the value of a great vacation?"

I tell our prospective guests that you get a relaxing, clean, secure place to stay for your money. Thank you for sharing your experience.

This family owned resort welcomes guests to cabin-type areas with 2 bedrooms, fully stocked kitchen, bathroom. On site is a swimming pool and hot tub. I am so impressed with the cleanliness of the resort. Everything is spotless. The owners are friendly, chatty, but not too talkative. All utensils are in the kitchen with pots, pans, dishes, etc. The pool and the hot tub also are very clean and a pleasure to use. There is a play area for children. Very family friendly.

Room Tip: There are several sizes of cabins which will accomodate a small family or a larger family.

My family loves to go to Silver Dollar City. This resort is nearby, and is on the favorable side of the highway to avoid traffic congestion to and from SDC.

One of our boys has many food allergies, so most of his food has to be prepared while on the road, which is a logistics hassle. The kitchen in the two bedroom room was great, which made food preparation much easier than a typical room with only a microwave and a dorm-size refridgerator. The full-size refridgerator was a definate plus.

A few days after arriving home from this trip, we recieved a package from David at Golden Arrow. He found one of our boys' t-shirts and sounvenier penny by the pool and mailed them to us. That is great customer service, and is appreciated.

The pool is large, very well maintained and has a slide that kids love. The hot tub is located in it's own gazebo. There are two different play areas for kids, one near the pool with swings, and merry-go-round. Another area with a swing is behind the rooms.

Other than the mattresses being harder than we are used to, we enjoyed our stay at the Golden Arrow and will definately return.

goldenarrowresort, Owner at Golden Arrow Resort, responded to this reviewResponded May 30, 2012

Dear SDCvisitor, Thank you for your kind words! We believe that our location makes the Golden Arrow a convenient place to stay for all visitors. Silver Dollar City is just minutes away, and on the side of the park without the traffic jam at the beginning and end of the day. Table Rock Lake visitors are just two blocks from the marina, and all the theatres, shopping, and attractions of Branson are still only 10 minutes away.

While eating out is part of the fun of vacationing, we think all families benefit from having a meal to which their bodies are accustomed, even if it's just a bowl of cereal.

Thank you again for the excellent rating. We hope we get to host your family again soon.

Wanted to get away from the hassle of work and spend time with the family before the youngest heads off to college. Great location, easy to get to everything we needed, to include groceries. For the 3 of us, the "C" unit was perfect...it was clean and had enough cookware for us to do what we needed. Was it brand new...absolutely not. But for a safe, clean place to lay your head and cook your meals while enjoying the Branson attractions with your family, especially with the economy acting the way it is, there is probably no better place to stay than Golden Arrow. Yes, there was one group that arrived and decided to see just how late into the night they could be loud, but you can certainly find that anywhere. The key is that Dave runs the place much like my parents did their resort in Wisconsin years ago...with customer service and personal attention in mind. He was so quick to fix an issue with the deadbolt on our door that is would make a person's head spin. If friends or family are headed to Branson, as they often do, I will surely tell them to call Dave first.
