I detest Branson. The only reason we were there was to get a much needed family vacation for cheap. I was really not looking forward to the trip. Branson is so cheesy and hokey and every time we have been there (we live only 3 hours away) we vow to never come back. But some how or another we wind up back there anyway.
The resort however was a great find!
The pool is very small and the hot tub needed a good cleaning.
The mattress was a tad uncomfortable, but aren’t all mattress in condo’s or hotels?
Washer and dryer in unit, Great location (right next door to silver dollar city), friendly staff, the unit was well appointed and very very clean, the balcony was very large (This was my favorite thing about the place) and we paid 295.00 for the unit (wholesale). Our unit was very close to the pool area.
If we have to go back to Branson we will stay here. It’s not on the strip (thank God) and the location is very peaceful and beautiful. We really enjoyed our family time in this resort and that made the whole trip worth it.
We did have some things stolen off our car while we were unloading our things. This isn’t the resorts fault. Just watch your things very carefully as I’m sure you do anywhere.
Also, if you get a chance you should visit Celebration City. It’s a smaller theme park. It opens at 3 and closes at 10. It’s 31 dollars for an adult and that includes admission one free meal and all your drinks. It’s a great bargain and the rides are pretty good. One word of warning – if you’re like us and hate cheesy style shows don’t stick around for the fireworks show at 10 in Celebration City. It’s just a few fireworks and the rest of time its a very annoying Branson style show.
Other members of my family went to White Water and said it was very good and of course silver dollar city is great.
Lantern Bay was everything we wanted and needed in a resort. Like I said – it’s the last place on our list of places to visit but I’m sure we will be back. When we come back we will stay here (Even if we don’t get it for 295.00).
Also about the review that stated the playground was unsafe and boring. Our Children loved it and were there a few times. It didn’t look unsafe to me. Maybe Lantern bay made changes to it? But honestly it was fine.
If you’re thinking about booking it go ahead. You will be happy with your choice.
