Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Kirbyville - Pothole Riviera Properties LLC

Best Single Spot in the Ozarks--truly

Well stocked, landscaped 1200 sq ft house sits directly across from Upper Bull Shoals Lake. Powersite Dam and Lower Taneycomo Lake are a quarter mile away. By staying near a dam, you have two lakes to enjoy; and Table Rock Lake is only 30 minutes away. Young kids can fish from the shore on both lakes near the house. Boat launches are available nearby. Table Rock Dam is only half an hour away, with blue ribbon fly fishing for trout.

This house consists of two independent, private levels--a perfect set-up for couples, fishing buddies, or extended family to vacation together, yet stay separately. Part of the house was just recently renovated out of an unused basement; and it has a rich, cozy ambiance. My wife and I got married at the house, with forty people in attendance. Our very first renters got married while staying there--so be careful if you don't want to fall in love. And what better place for a honeymoon?

Both levels have microwaves, refrigerators, garbage disposals, and oven/stoves. Dishwasher and stackable washer/dryer on the upper level. The place has abundant kitchen utensils, bedding, and towels (bring your own lake towels). Screened-in porch has a futon so you may sleep out in the fresh, warm, summer night air. Two fire pit areas in the backyard. Two gas B-B-Q grills, plus a small charcoal grill. Queen-size beds: one upstairs, one down. Hideaway sofa both levels, TV/DVD players, and views of the lake--although trees obstruct somewhat. Hammock and two bicycles available. I use insect killer on the lawn to reduce tick and chigger attacks. In my opinion, the house's main attraction is its location. You have three large lakes and all of Branson within a comfortable distance of driving.

Most guests are simply blown away by how well stocked the place is. It is what I would want if I were to stay there as a renter. Pets include dogs and cats, pets are $10 per pet per night and security deposit goes up to $300.

About Jerry Wible

Being an avid fisherman, I moved to Branson in 1980. In time, the Forsyth area grew on me such that I purchased some land there twenty years ago. When this lake house came up for sale--adjoining my land--I pounced on it. Then, it was thirteen months of renovation to spruce it up and bring it up to code. The man who did the work is a genius at building (in my opinion) and lives next door. His mother cleans. What more could I have asked for?

I have tried to make this the kind of destination that I would want to enjoy. The stretch of water below the dam is known for its fishing, with sixty-plus pound stripers available, amongst many other species. Superb trout fishing is available in Taneycomo Lake--a quarter mile away--but also right across the street, in Bull Shoals Lake. My wife has gone plumb crazy over catching trout, and she usually outfishes me.

Jerry Wible purchased this house in 2012

Why Jerry Wible chose Kirbyville

For the past twenty years, I've owned three lots abutting this lake house lot. I am now using one of those lots to provide generous parking. Altogether, theoretically, guests should be able to park up to four cars with boats attached. Or, just walk across the street and catch your limit without the need of a boat. Drive to Table Rock Dam and enjoy the blue ribbon trout fishing in the headwaters of Taneycomo Lake; then have dinner and enjoy a show in family-friendly Branson.

The springtime white bass fishing draws fishermen from all around. Large walleye can be taken, better at night. Family-friendly Shadowrock Park is just two miles from my (your) lake house. Bull Shoals Lake is nearly deserted compared to Table Rock Lake.

I honestly think this house sits on the single most unique piece of land in all the Ozarks. No houses here have water frontage, but I am as close as one can get to the lake--a stone's throw away. There are three large lakes nearby, all within half an hour's drive or so.

What makes this house unique

Walking/biking trail can be accessed across the street (no vehicles allowed). Two parks within two miles, one with tennis and volleyball. Two RV parks nearby. Trout dock just above the dam--a ten minute walk.

Ralph Foster Museum and Titanic Museum in Branson.

Silver Dollar City, with a cave to explore, is an experience all of its own. Shepard of the Hills has entertained visitors for decades but has closed. Take a Ride-the-Duck tour of the Branson area.

In the winter, you may (with my permission) build a fire in the upper level fireplace and enjoy a glass of wine as the fire crackles--and as do steaks on the grill. Or build a fire in one of the two firepit areas in the backyard and watch it from the hammock. Best of all may simply be sitting in the screened-in porch and enjoying the nighttime roar of water coming over the dam--while gazing at the lights along the top of the dam and the boats with nighttime fishermen below. I think this place is perfect for a couple with romance on their minds.

A WONDERFUL 5 STAR SECRET PLACE THAT WE WERE SO BLESSED TO FIND

  • 5 out of 5
The pictures really do not fully give this property justice. IT WAS SO PERFECT FOR OUR NEEDS. We booked the week of Thanksgiving 2014 to spend with our family from San Antonio. We live in NE Indiana, making this close to half way.
We wanted something that would give us access to everything Branson had to offer, but have our privacy also. IT WAS PERFECT. We had 7 days of Blue Bird Skies, the mountains blocked the wind, and we were able to enjoy the entire home. We felt like home staying at this property. Our son and his family upstairs and Dad and Mom downstairs. Everyone had their "space". We spent hours on the enclosed porch talking, telling family stories, playing games, and just so enjoyed everything this property offered.
We were so surprised at the fact that the owners considered and anticipated everything that we would need for our stay. So anyone looking at this property, keep in mind, THEY SUPPLY EVERYTHING. You don't have to pack paper towels, shampoo and conditioner, paper plates, napkins, freezer bags...NOTHING, THEY PROVIDED IT ALL. I have never in my many years of travel felt so accommodated. Your morning coffee (which was also provided), with the sun warming the enclosed porch in November with the view of the lakes, the mountains and the singing of the birds was just so relaxing.
Everything we needed to cook a Thanksgiving Dinner for 6 was there and perfect for our use.
Review Readers...please take the time to consider this beautiful, comfortable, relaxing property. I could go on and on about this property.
We had the opportunity to meet the owners face to face and our first impressions left us with the impression, these are very nice, kind and very thoughtful owners, that truly go above and beyond to make this property a vacation to remember. I know we will be talking about our vacation for years to come. Thank you so much Jerry and Shiela from the bottom of our hearts, for the memories this wonderful vacation home gave to our family. We will return without a doubt. We are seriously considering retiring in Missouri, because you really "showed us" how wonderful your State is and the kindness of the people.
For those people that go on vacation, and need a vacation to recover from your vacation....YOU ARE DOING IT ALL WRONG! THIS IS THE WAY TO GO!
Thank you Jerry and Shiela...you have not seen the last of us :D

Weekend getaway

  • 5 out of 5
We just came back from a spur of the moment get away to Branson and happened upon this listing by chance. The owner is very easy to work with and very welcoming. The caretaker is equally friendly and stayed for a bit to visit with us. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised, the house is well stocked as stated in the other reviews but we didn't expect all the many extras, like games, movies, cabinets with every cooking utensil you may need, even outdoor equipment for the kids. The home was clean with a homey feel, beds were comfortable, extra linens and bedding was easy to find. The levels are completely separate with outdoor stairways to each which would be great for 2 families to each have their own level. Each level had a queen bed and a pull out couch. There is a paved walking/biking trail just across the road that follows the river/lake and the rental even had a couple of bikes you could borrow. We came for a busy weekend in Branson and didn't have time to fully enjoy the area but are looking forward to coming back with family to spend some time relaxing! Thank you for the nice get-away, we will recommend you to everyone we know!

Beautiful, Quiet, Relaxing Place to stay with all the comforts of home. Close to Branson.

  • 5 out of 5
This was a much needed beautiful quiet getaway. We met our friends there and had a great time visiting, fishing and some site seeing. Branson is really close so you can go there and check out shows, eating or shopping.
The owners are super nice and helpful. House is clean and very well supplied. Backyard has two nice fire pits where you can sit around the fire and talk. They made sure you have all the comforts of home. We appreciated all the effort and work they put into making your stay great.
We had a wonderful time and hope to go back. Highly recommend.

I can't believe there is a better place to rent than this house!! It is modern, very clean and more than comfortable!! It is completely equipped it with all that you would want and more (i.e., grill, 2 bikes, horseshoes, nice fire pit with plenty of great fire wood, ample seating in two outside areas and a HAMMOCK!!) The area surrounding this house is both beautiful and calming. It just doesn't get any better than this when it comes to vacation!! We will be back!

good times

  • 4 out of 5
We had a great time here at the lake house. Loved being so close to the lake the fishing was great. Very nice well stocked house . Porch was very nice. Only problems we had was the cat hanging around and a tom cat at that so was a little smelly. And couldn't find any dishcloths to wash dishes. Also code was wrong on doors so had deal with that all weekend but all in all would stay there again

Owner's Response: Dishrags were available and not hard to find. An incorrect door code was entered initially by my housekeeper. Her son fixed the problem within minutes of guests arrival.

Trout fishermen! Winter/spring is a good time to catch a large Brown or Rainbow trout. The white bass make their spawning run in March. You can't find a plumber, electrician, or handyman at that time of year. They stay out on the water. If you want real peace of mind and escape from the frenetic beehive of life, let Forsyth be your destination. While the big lakes are being crisscrossed with wakes from innumerable boats, upper Bull Shoals and lower Taneycomo remain relatively undisturbed. Even on the Fourth of July weekend, you will see no more than a handful of boats down here by the (small) Powersite Dam--at least until the fire works are set off. People flock in for the fireworks. You are only half an hour to all of Branson's theaters, restaurants, water parks, Silver Dollar City, and more. For serious water skiers, I would recommend going to K-Dock (on Bull Shoals Lake). It is halfway between Branson and Forsyth--less than ten miles from my lake house. Even on weekends, you may not see more than another boat or two. It is where a bunch of us used to ski each Wednesday afternoon when I lived in Branson many years ago. Forsyth is special. A fifty pound striper was caught right across the road from my house. Just about every species except sturgeon, northern perch, northern/musky can be found in Bull Shoals. Non-fishing entertainment abounds in Branson--only minutes away. And there is lots to do within a couple miles of my place.

Notes:
I think this place is ideal for two seemingly opposite types of people. First is the fishing. Nearly every kind of Midwest species of fish is available, and it is just across the lightly traveled road in front of my house. Serious fishermen love this area. Guides can be arranged. Table Rock Lake is not far away if you want to go water skiing, scuba diving, or parasailing. What a spectacular area for getting away. The first two couples to stay here got married (one of them was my wife and I). How about some hot apple cider and a fire in the fireplace to break the autumn chill of sitting out on the screened-in porch after a walk or bike ride to one of the nearby parks?
