Tough Choices

My husband and I plan on coming to Branson this summer. We have 4 teen/adult children plus their spouses or friends, so there is a group of 10 total. Although, they may not all be there for the entire time, we need to have enough space.

We really want a place on the lake with access to a boat rental. We would prefer something fairly close to Silver Dollar City. I have done some searching and it seems overwhelming at times.

The choices thus far are the following:

Still Waters


Hunters Friend

We can afford about $2,000 - $2,500 for the week.

Does anyone have any input or know of any places that I totally missed? Thanks.

Indian Point Chamber of Commerce has a website you might find useful.


I'm not sure if the condo's I listed have boat rental but at the very end of Indian Point Road is a marina with boat rental. Their rates are really good.

We have stayed at

Treehouse Condos- it's a little walk to the lake but the condo's are really nice and could fit all of you.

Stillwaters - Right on the lake and nice condos that could easily fit the whole group.

Golden Arrow- older resort not close to the water. The owners are really nice and the place is clean but I don't think you could fit in one unit. This is probably cheaper then the other 2.

Cottage resort- very close to the water and the marina. It's older and not my first choice but the units we stayed in were clean.

Hunters Friend - I have never stayed there but it gets really good reviews on the 1branson.com forum.

This may be a good opportunity to rent a large home and stay under one roof. Check out one of the listing portals which are classified ads for vacation rentals. You’ll find a selection of resort owned, privately owned, managed by owner and managed by a management company. Prices, terms and amenities vary. To name a few, start with Trip Advisor’s Vacation Rentals ads using the link on this page, www.vrbo.com, www.vacationrentals.com, and www.vacationhomerentals.com to name a few. Many of the large homes may only be available for a full week.
