About Philip Edwards
I attended a small catholic high school in Southwest Missouri. Later, while in college at Ole Miss I developed a passion for real estate. Over the last 20 years I've been making deals, buying real estate and leasing properties. Recently, i decided to build 3 lakeview lodges in Branson, Missouri and lease them out on a nightly basis as vacation rentals.
Philip Edwards purchased this House in 2017
Why Philip Edwards chose Branson
When I first visited the location where The Big Chief Lodge now sits, it was in the middle of winter and freezing cold outside. I stepped out of my car onto the steep hillside overlooking table rock lake and immediately saw the vision for The Big Chief Lodge. Now, 6 months later, the lodge is finished and we are starting to lease the property to family's and large groups... and people love it!
What makes this House unique

Loved that there was a bedroom with attached bathroom for each of us.
The perfect place for our group of 20! There was easily enough room and beds to accommodate all and ensure a great weekend getaway. After reading what amenities were provided, we made sure to bring a coffee maker to accommodate our adult coffee drinkers. Otherwise, the kitchen was fully stocked to prepare big meals.
The house was beautiful and big enough for our group. We loved all the seating space in the kitchen because we cooked most of our meals and ate together as a family. The kitchen seemed to have just about everything we needed. It would’ve been nice to have a dish drainer when we hand washed dishes. The top floor and basement allowed more privacy for the ones who had those bedrooms. The bedroom I had was on the main floor off the kitchen and I could hear everything going on so it was a good thing I would go to bed later and am an early riser. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. It seemed as though we were washing bath towels often as there were only 3 per room so a few extra would’ve been appreciated. The location of this lake house was nice and quiet but there was a steep hill we had to walk down to get to the boat dock which wasn’t as bad as walking back up the steep hill. We drove each time for those older family members who needed a ride. There was a parking area by the dock as well as trailer parking once we put our boat in. We would definitely recommend this house and working with the owner was very easy. He always had a timely reply anytime I had a question.
Our group of 14 enjoyed this spacious home. Great large kitchen for everyone to congregate. Spent time at both pools and the kids enjoyed the Xbox, pool table and playing corn hole. We enjoyed being right on the lake and having our own boat slip. The bathrooms had shampoo and soap but you may want to bring your own soap as it was a pumice style soap that we didn’t care for. Beds were very comfy. The two pull out beds upstairs are meant for kids which worked well for our group but may not work for an adult. We used the grill a couple of times but had to buy charcoal since it was not a gas grill. I would also recommend takings your stuff off the porch at night because the sprinklers got everything wet. Overall it was a great experience and we would definitely come back to this house.
My family and I just spent 4 nights here for our family reunion. We rented three homes right next to one another. The homes were immaculate, stocked with anything you could need. They were spacious and for multiple family units it was great to have separate bedrooms with bathrooms for privacy. The AC worked great!! If I were to give this location anything less than 5 stars it would be the walk back and forth to the lake/boat dock. It would have been nice to have lakeside properties, but at Table Rock Lake that is hard to find. And on this note the ONLY thing that I would have changed is having a ladder on our boat dock. It seemed our dock was the only one around this area without a ladder to get back out of the water for swimming. Overall fantastic family experience and if we come back to Branson we will definitely choose these homes again!
Great house! Perfect for our large group!
