I am totally elated about the stay we just had here. It was our first trip as adult siblings. The home was very roomy and comfortable for our family. We truly enjoyed our stay and all things that were needed were at the home. The owner was very responsive and prompt to emails. There are neighboring homes that are rented out just the same as this one. All rooms have a king size bed and there are 3 sofa beds available if needed. This location is 10 minutes from Branson. We would recommend this home to anyone. Thanks Mrs. Barb for your hospitality.
Barbara is just a delight to work with! She made booking with her, easy! We had a group of 16-20 ladies gather for a women's retreat, and we were all VERY comfortable in Barbara's lodge. Several of the ladies are already trying to figure out when we can return and when we can bring our families!
Barbara was very responsive to texts, calls, and emails and presented herself in a friendly and professional manner.
Willow Branch Lodge is beautifully decorated, and clean. The lodge is spacious but still gives a cozy, warm feel. We are truly thankful to have been able to stay in Barbara's lodge, and hope to stay there again!
We visited Branson along with our family. We had 3 of our great grandchildren with us. It was our first time to ride the Polar Express and it was great. We were so pleased with the house we rented. It was just beautiful and there was plenty of room for everyone. The house was beautifully decorated for Christmas. We all enjoyed our stay and hope to make it an annual event. So much better than hotel rooms for a large group. Already looking forward to staying again next year!
Great location - 10 minutes from downtown Branson and The Landing. A beautiful and spacious home with an open floor plan and room to gather together or find your own quiet spot. Our group used this home while we attended a convention at the Hilton and loved gathering here in the evening. Barbara was very attentive to our needs and was available via text and email and responded immediately. I would definitely stay here again with a large group. Absolutely gorgeous home!!
The house offers a spacious main area upon entry with a vaulted ceiling. This area is centrally located and has sofas, table and chairs, and an electric fireplace, which made it a great place for our large group of 20 to gather. The house has two large tables with chairs as well as seating at the kitchen island and another table and chairs on the deck, providing ample seating during meals. The deck is screened with lights and a ceiling fan, which were premium features compared to the neighboring houses. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of plates and utensils as well as a Keurig and traditional coffee maker. The house was very clean and the air was crisp and fresh. The upstairs has a nice open loft area surrounded by bedrooms and bathrooms. The main level has a large master suite and an additional bedroom and bathroom. The lower ground level has a bedroom and bathroom as well as the home theater. Numerous sofa beds provide additional sleeping provisions (which the kids claimed as their area). The high-capacity washer and dryer were quite convenient. There is a concrete pad in front of the house, which holds three vehicles. Our fourth vehicle was parked in an overflow lot that was only a couple of houses away. There is a grill outside at ground-level (but we did not use it).
The pool is nearby and cozy. (Guests should note that its route along the paved road has steep slopes.) The basketball area is about twice as far as the pool. Grocery shopping and attractions were within short drives.
The owner, Barbara, was very pleasant and responsive. I had the opportunity to meet her when she kindly took the time to deliver a basketball for our use. It was easy to work with her. We really appreciate the opportunity to stay in this wonderful house, which allowed our large group to spend quality time together under one roof.
