“Great Wedding and Service At Bear Creek Lodge”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

We had our wedding at BearCreek Lodge in July. Originally planned on using the garden but decided it was going to be too hot. We changed are minds so we would have air conditioning and used the chapel instead without any issues. This was our first stay at Bear Creek Lodge. We stayed for 5 days and had our wedding in the Chapel on the 4th day we were there. It was decorated perfect for our occasion. The owner took the photos of the wedding during and after the ceremony. Photos turned out great. We were able to use the chapel for a small little reception afterwards with no charge. The Lodging was fantastic. We stayed in the Bunkhouse and had friends that stayed in the Bears Den and it was very nice as well. The grounds were peaceful and quiet. This is one of the best places that we've ever stayed. It was very well maintained and very clean. The breakfast was fabulous every morning. The owners were great people and easy to work with. We couldn't have been more happier with our choice. We will definatley be returning for another stay in the future. Lisa

We had a wonderful time at Bear Creek Lodge! The property is so secluded and beautifully landscaped and the cabins were the most charming and well decorated that we 've ever stayed in around the Branson area. The units were very clean and the staff was very personable and accomodating. The prailine french toast and biscuits and gravy are amazing, along with the fresh fruit and pastries every morning. The innkeeper Dennis, actually blends their house coffee every morning personally. They have an awesome wine cellar and they only carry missouri wine and lots of missouri products, which we found to be very refreshing. This small family owned resortish b and b could easily be home away from home. Can't wait to visit again and bring the kids next time.

Room Tip: The wilderness cabin is extremely private and cozy

Not very friendly, no cleaning supplies in the cabins, ants all over the kitchen, no extra sheet or blankets, breakfast not very good, parking is very bad you cannot take a big truck down to the cabins. The one thing that I can say is the surroundings were very nice and the cabins were neat looking, the owner has good decorating ability.

My husband and I got married at Bear Creek in June of 2006. The place was gorgeous then and it has only gotten better since. We have returned to Bear Creek several times since our wedding and have loved every stay. The owners continue to add wonderful things to the place, and we especially recommend this venue for brides and grooms looking for the perfect wedding. The rooms are all lovely and clean, and the breakfast in the mornings is amazing. Best Bed and Breakfast we've ever visited!!

My husband and I and 2 teenagers just returned from a 5 night stay in the Treehouse cabin. The cabin and location are wonderful! It's really a beautiful property and very close to Branson.
I found there to be little communication prior to and during our trip. I changed our dates (they were accomodating in this aspect.) But I did not receive an email to say they would or would not make the change. I also emailed to confirm our arrival and received no response. Check in was easy but no one ever introduced themselves the entire time and we sort of felt like we were intruding at times.
The breakfast is in the main lodge and was pretty good most days. There is a one hour window for breakfast but there are kitchens in the cabins.
There is also a list of things you are required to do when you leave or be charged a $75 cleaning fee. And that is not a problem but be aware that the people before you washed the dishes and you might want to rewash before you use them. We had a used coffee filter in the coffee pot.
Again, this is a beautiful property and we would stay again. Just don't expect a warm welcome and it will be fine...

Only bad thing to say was we only got to stay 2 nights because they were booked Friday and Saturday night before we called! We stayed Wed/Thurs (May16-17) nights. The place is so beautiful, peaceful and relaxing just what we needed! Needless to say great place for a romantic get away! We enjoyed our small talk with Rebecca and Amanda getting to know them and learning more about how the lodge came to be. And I can see why they say most of their clients are repeats....WE will be booking way in advance next time!! We stayed in the 'tree house' cabin but toured them all and also liked the 'cowboy' room if you have more people.

Rebecca and Amanda gave us some recommendations that we took and we LOVED them all! From the canoe floats, Reeds Spring Pizza Company, Copper Run Distillery to breakfast at Billy Gail's on Indian point (at our other place of stay).

We enjoyed the wine tasting event along with the great food served to us by Amanda! The breakfasts were served in beautiful setting of the main lodge were to die for! YUMMY! The private hot tubs were a joy as well!

We will if have not told all of our friends about your great place! Thanks again!

Room Tip: Have pictures will share if you want to see.

We had a very lovely wedding at Bear Creek Lodge September 10, 2011. We were never told who the people were that checked us in, the owner we found out later, were a little cold and unfriendly at first, but warmed up later. Our creek side cabin was wonderful and the breakfasts were delicious. My flowers for the wedding were provided by the lodge were beautiful, exactly what I wanted. Our ceremony was less than perfect, but ok. The pictures they took of us were wonderful as well. Overall it was a lovely setting and exactly what we had hoped for as far as location. We would love to stay there again.
