Guestbook comments from the manager

We really enjoyed our stay at Captain's Cove while celebrating our mom's 90th birthday. It was spacious, clean and private. The pool and hot tub seemed to be ours alone. The view from the deck was very pleasant. Some of us braved the frigid lake waters for a polar bear plunge. . We caught a lot of trout and enjoyed fresh grilled fillets in the pool side shelter. A cousin staying down the road at another resort was able to water taxi everyone from the dock. With Branson Landing and Branson so close we could not have hoped for a better location and experience. A few of the comments made by previous renters we would agree with. The sofa beds are not comfortable except for little ones who would be too exhausted to notice. We finally got the dvd player to work without freezing. A big cookie sheet would be nice. All in all it was a wonderful stay.

A wonderful week with family at Captain's Cove

  • 5 of 5

We rented Captain's Cove for the week of July 8-15, 2017 for a family vacation. We had 15 people ages 9-74 and we loved our week there. The house met our needs, the location was ideal (quiet but not far from the "action"; the pool and hot tub were awesome (and for most of the week we had it all to ourselves). We would highly recommend Captain's Cove for a family vacation.

Good value for the dollar

  • 4 of 5

We had a party of 9 adults staying at Briarwood/Captain's Cove. We found the accommodations acceptable and the rooms large. The pictures of the property were accurate to what the property appears. The kitchen was large enough to handle 9 adults eating at the same time. We read the reviews, and for the price per night, felt we had some great accommodations. Now, I would like to point out a few positive and negative points to the property... Positive: the maintenance man followed up with the problem we had with the ice maker in a timely fashion. We did not ask for the problem to be fixed while we were staying at the property, but he asked what he could do to help, etc. Negative: Screen porch and outdoor area: screens were broke out in 3-4 windows/doors. The picnic table was unable to be used due to bowing of the seats (on both sides) making it unable to enjoy. Several outdoor chairs, screen door, and umbrella were just cast to the side of deck, obviously not able to use. It would have been nice to have been able to use these items on our stay. Some follow up on maintenance side: after the rain during our stay, leaks in the roof were noticed in 3 different areas. This possibly could have been avoided if the gutters were cleaned out and did not have plants growing out of them.

The place was great,better then expected. The house was very nice we felt very comfortable in all the rooms. The kitchen was very well stocked. We had a small problem with a door and it was taken care of right away. The owners were always quick to respond to emails before we stayed there. The highlight for us was the property, and all the wildlife! We always were seeing animals and birds.There was a woodchuck in the yard most everyday for hours just eating.Great place to stay.

Great space for large groups

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location and all the great space for our family. Enjoyed watching the bald eagles and the groundhogs. Fishing was great....caught our limit on trout every day. Pool and hot tub were great. The sliding screen to the deck fell out of the track the first time we opened it and the towel bar in the larger downstairs bathroom kept falling off the wall. If you're paying a cleaning service you should find someone else....lots of cobwebs and hair on the bathroom floor and the house smelled musty.

Owner's Response: Thank you for submitting a review of our Branson Vacation home. I’m sorry you experienced our dryer malfunction. My property manager and I explored ever avenue to get the unit repaired or replaced. Unfortunately, the unit was a gas dryer that required a propane conversion kit. None of the stores in the area carried gas dryer units and the propane conversion kit needed to be special ordered thru the manufacture. We explored converting to electric, but that required permitting with the city to add 220V and would take weeks. I’m very sorry about the inconvenience. We ordered a new dryer that was delivered and installed today. Additionally, you indicated our kitchen was not well equipped. We have made every effort to accommodate needs of our guests, including purchasing electric griddles, crock pots, Tupperware, etc. We encourage guests to let us know if they need anything and we will get it for them. Could you please elaborate on what you felt was missing from the kitchen that would have improved your experience? We will make sure to purchase these items for future guests. Lastly, you indicated the mattresses were uncomfortable. Please let us know which mattresses you felt were uncomfortable. Most of the mattresses have about two years of use. We are in the process of replacing the sofa beds as some of the frames have been recently damaged. Again, we appreciate your feedback and will use this this information to improve our property. Thanks again, Dan Wilson, Owner
