Our stay at Still Waters made our vacation. It was our first time in Branson. The strip was okay but would have drove me crazy if we had stayed there for a week. Still Waters is on Indian Point, a peninsula about 10 minutes to the busy strip. It was perfect. During our week stay we visited the Strip, saw the Titanic museum, went zip lining, went to Silver Dollar City which is right up the street from Still Waters-you wont get lost, you don't even have to get on the highway( I would recommend going to Silver Dollar City on a Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday only). We got back most evenings around 4 or 5pm than had our choice of three pools or the lake to swim at. Our room 118, building E, was beautiful, 2 bedroom, washer and dryer in the condo. Right across the street from the park, basketball, volley ball. Fifty feet to the zoom slide pool where our 13 and 11 year old swam every night until 10pm, met tons of friends, also next to the game room, bicycles, market. Right outside our back door was another pool. The lake was about 2 1/2 blocks, which was fine, I didn't want the kids there without us. Its pretty deep water. The best part of our trip was renting a tri toon boat. Justin who work at the Marina was great, and patient. We had only been on a boat one time and never drove one before. He showed us how to do everything before we took off. We were over whelmed thinking we might get lost on the huge lake, we took it slow at first, looked at some landmarks, got a little lost once but it was really not big deal. We had too much fun. With gas, and we drove the boat the entire four hours we rented it, it cost $300, a little of a splurge for us but worth every penny. It was the best thing we did. After about ten minutes of getting used to the boat we let the kids go tubing, and try knee boarding. (I do recommend if you are new like me to boating to know how to swim and take the Missouri Boaters Education Course on line, its really easy to do on line and if you are born after 1980 something it is mandatory to have the $30 Missouri boaters certificate if you want to drive the boat. With an adult if you have your certificate you can drive the boat at age 14. I was born in 1974 so I didn't go through with purchasing the certificate but I did find the class very useful. Driving the boat was so easy, next year I will let my 14 year old drive once he has his certificate. Also the Missouri Boaters Safety Certificate is good in any waters in the US.). This hotel was known for kids activities but I do think young adults as well as couples would also enjoy it. And if you have kids check the daily activities bulletin. There are different things every day from kayak races, to basket ball and volley ball games you can sign up for. Also a bug eating nature walk, and potato sack race. Just different things you can sign up for if you want.
