About Jen Ipsen

We live in Kansas City but are both small town people. I grew up in small town Iowa, my husband in small town Kansas. We both have worked in hotels for over 15 years.

Jen Ipsen purchased this condo in 2013

Why Jen Ipsen chose Notch Estates

We purchased our condo because we love the outdoor activities in the area. We enjoy spending time at Table Rock Lake, hiking at Henning Conversation area, canoeing on the area rivers, and relaxing by the pool. We chose to purchase at Notch because the grounds and units are so well maintained, and also because we like being away from the hustle and bustle of Branson, which is just ten minutes away. Branson West has a lovely small town feel and everyone is very welcoming and friendly. My parents live 20 minutes from our condo and they manage it.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is a top floor corner unit and we loved the vaulted ceilings only available on the top floors. Our deck has amazing mountain views and because we're on the corner we can look out two sides of the deck. We also selected our unit because it needed a bit of updating and we love to remodel. We got rid of the popcorn texture, installed new carpet in the bedrooms, new flooring in the bathrooms, all new light fixtures, new modern faucets, hardware on the cabinets and the entire unit got fresh paint.

Great stay!!

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay!! The condo was great and had everything we needed. There were even treats to greet us when we got there. We slept great! The beds were comfortable! My only suggestions are the pool area near the condo needs more chairs and the coffee pot took forever to make coffee.

Perfect for all things Branson

  • 5 of 5

We really loved your property.

Nicely decorated with a beautiful view from the balcony. The corner unit is great and maybe ten stairs gives you the top floor with no neighbors above you.

The proximity to attractions is fantastic. Only two miles to Silver Dollar City and a 15-20 minute drive to Table Rock Lake where we rented a pontoon boat.

I bought a cheap fishing rod and a couple of lures from the Wal-Mart 5 minutes away to fish the gorgeous pond located on the property. I caught and released a couple. The walk back up the hill will be tough for some unless you're in decent shape.

Very clean and highly recommended. If we should ever make it back we'll look you up.

Adorable & Super Clean With Gorgeous Treetop Views

  • 5 of 5

My family (two adults, two children 4 and under) had a fantastic stay at J&J's Retreat over Mother's Day weekend. The condo has been updated with modern decor and everything is super clean. Lots of special little touches to make it very "homey", which is especially nice when traveling with children. From the cookies and candy put out on the tables, to the books, movies, board games and toys available, it really felt comfortable. The deck has great furniture and tables, and the large round lounge chair is fantastic for a morning read and coffee high up in the treetops. There were plenty of extra towels, pillows and linens, and the washer and dryer are very nice- all supplies included as well. The kitchen has all the basics you need, and there are supplies available for the grill as well, Walk in shower has a nice shower head with good pressure (didn't try the master bath shower). Bedrooms were comfortable and both have ceiling fans if you need them. Notch Estates itself seems very quiet and well maintained, with a playground, several picnic table areas and multiple pools. From there to Silver Dollar City, you're coming from the opposite direction of most traffic, so you can get in much quicker, which is great. We would highly recommend this condo to our friends and family and would love to stay again in the future!

2nd stay here and just as great

  • 5 of 5

Perfect size. Great back deck with sunset view. There is also a front deck which we didn't use. We didn't fix meals but there are several "spice" kind of things if you needed it. We did use the coffee and microwave popcorn. It was also nice to have home-baked cookies waiting for us. The lake is calm but it is quite a steep hike on loose rock. Plenty of books, games, TV's and movies. The only negative I can think of is it is towards the back of the complex which means you will have to cross several speed bumps.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

J & J’s retreat was an excellent place to stay. We were in town to primarily visit Silver Dollar City, and this property was very close to the park.

It was clean and comfortable within the property. We had a nice few off the larger patio.

Next visit to Branson, we will look for availability here again first.

Thanks so much for having a very clean and comfortable unit.

This is it!

  • 5 of 5

When vacationing I always use this site. This experience by far has been one of my best. The pictures do not lie. What you see is what you get. What you don't see is the true cleanliness of the property, the professionalism of the owner, and the convenience of the location. The contemporary furniture was both nice and comfortable. The view from the balcony is breathtaking. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan to book this property again in the future.
