We stayed at this hotel for 1 night in a lake view king room. The hotel is very nice but you pay for it in the room price. There is an open atrium with waterfalls and ponds with fish in them. There is an indoor and outdoor pool. The outdoor pool is cooled so the water stays cool even in the summer. There are whirlpools beside each of the pools. Our room was clean and very nice with a great view of the lake. The king bed was comfortable. The bath room was large with nice marble countertop. We ordered room service for breakfast and I was surprised that the food was very good and the portions were big. The prices seem high like 15 for an omelet plate but you do get large portions and it includes juice and choice of coffee or milk. The best deal I found was the romantic rendezvous package which includes 1 night stay with free valet parking, champagne and chocolate covered strawberries on arrival, and a $50 food service credit.

The hotel is perched high on a hill overlooking beautiful Table Rock Lake.

The hotel is nicely decorated with an atrium and water fall in the lobby. We had room 230. The room itself was nice. Everything seemed new and clean. The room was average to large in size with two queen beds and a large flat screen television. There was a wet bar area in the room, itself, but it did not include a mini-bar or fridge. The bathroom was large with a huge vanity area. One nice touch was a hamper in the bathroom for wet towels (you didn't have to leave them on the floor or in the tub if you wanted them to be replaced.) Overall, the rooms were comfortable, clean and nice.

Our room, unfortunately, had absolutely no view. We had one window that looked out at the roof of the entrance. Seriously, we looked at a steepled roof. We did not complain as we were on business. I'm sure their are rooms with great views, most with sliding doors and small balconies. Just avoid this room if you would like a view.

The pool was nice with a great view, and usually not too crowded in the morning. It could get difficult to a chair later in the day. Also, on the ground floor near the pool there was a large patio area with tables and comfortable chairs. There was also a fountain. This was a nice area to sit and relax, read, have a drink, and enjoy the view of the lake and mountains.

There was a nice sweets and coffee shop from which you could grab a coffee and muffin or cinnamon rool for breakfast or ice cream of cake for dessert. The prices at this shop were rather reasonable and the servings large. I did eat at the restaurant for breakfast twice, once having the buffet and the other ordering off the menu. I didn't think the buffet was worth the money. Anything at the buffet could be ordered off the menu, and some of the items on the buffet were soggy, etc. The prices were high, but similar to other hotel restaurant prices. It was never busy, and the food was pretty good, but not great. The service was good, although the hostess was not the friendliest.

One nice amenity was a small movie theater that showed two movies daily. The first showing at 2 p.m. was always a kids movie, and the second at 7 p.m. was usually PG or PG-13. Popcorn was served. This was a nice diversion on a rainy afternoon.

One afternoon, we rented a pontoon boat and tube from the hotel marina. This was by far the highlight of the trip. The rental fee was reasonable ($200 for 4 hrs. plus gas.) The lake is very large and rather pretty. It is also deep. There were several places for everyone to stop and jump off cliffs into the water. Very fun.

The Chateau on the Lake is a beautiful hotel complete with great amenities. We stayed there over the Fourth of July week with extended family and it provided plenty to do for all ages. The staff really stood out above all as they provided excellent service and went above and beyond anticipating our needs whether we were at the pool, the marina, or the movie theater. And the fireworks display on the 4th was phenomenal!

The only hesitation I would have for choosing the Chateau for our next trip to Branson is the fact that none of us were aware that pets were allowed to stay in the rooms. And we were assigned rooms on the "pet" floor and were not able to move upon our arrival because our party would have been separated on different floors to accomodate this request. Noise was not the problem as I thought it might have been but rather I was uncomfortable with dogs being walked through the restaurant area and the pool area with small children playing everywhere. Also, I did not like thinking that someone else's pet likely slept on the bed or couch in our room.

Aside from the pet issue, I was impressed with the accomodations and would recommend it to anyone desiring an upscale vacation experience - as long as you aren't allergic to pets.

We stayed at the resort with three generations of family for our 50th wedding anniversary. The staff went out of thier way to please us. The rooms were beautiful and the service was outstanding. We came back from the nature trail one morning and the staff immediately gave us bottles of cold water to rehydrate. The teenagers loved the marina with the canoes and jet skis. We rented a pontoon boat for a day and the price was very reasonable and it wa so much fun. We would return in a minute as all familty members raved about what an accomadating resort we were in.

Wonderful resort with an amazing staff. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. This is our main criteria on whether we return to a resort or not.
We loved our room - a chateau king with an amazing view of the lake. Loved the high speed elevators with the center atrium views.
Marina is very well equipped with a pleasant staff.
Outdoor pool has nice views . . . they even have lemon-scented cooling towels brought to your chair on the hot days!
All of our meals were excellent and reasonably priced for what you get. Loved the Sweet Shoppe.
Resort is adjacent to the dam and state park with hiking trail.
Highly recommend this resort to those who want an upscale resort in Branson away from "the strip" and on the lake. Only a quick drive to the shows if you do want to go - we used our Garmin which took us on the backroads and got us there quickly.
We will definitely go back.
