About Karin Cupit

We live in Oklahoma and love spending time with children and grandchildren. I have such happy memories of Branson with my grandparents and now love making memories with my grandchildren. It is a special place for our family and we love sharing this opportunity with others. After staying in a home in Branson Canyon in 2012 we built a home of our own and have been sharing it through vacation rentals. We have enjoyed that home so much we bought this property in October, 2015 that is next to our other home. This works out wonderful for large groups that might need more space and also for us!

Incredibly warm and comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 moms and 8 daughters came to Branson for a national dance competition. We usually stay in hotels, but this time we decided to stay at a rental home. I cannot express how pampered and comforted this home made us all feel. So much better than a hotel!! It was so great to return home after a long day of dancing to the amenities Gracious Moose offers! And a great neighborhood, backyard forest with walking path, and a quick walk to the pool.

If we return to Branson again, we will definitely be heading back to Gracious Moose.

Oh, our girls named the bear statue in the front yard Phillip!

A most wonderful “ Pre-Xmas Xmas!” at the Gracious Moose!

  • 5 of 5

This was the 6th year that our family of 16 has met in Branson to celebrate Xmas a week early . However this was our first stay at the Gracious Moose . Let me say that everyone from grandparents to grown children to grandchildren rated our stay here as our favorite so far . This was due to several reasons : 1) the Xmas decorations were very plentiful and nicely done making our time there very festive 2) the layout was perfect for multi- generations 3) this home is very well stocked from toiletries to other incidentals and kitchen even had 3 crockpots !) owners have thought of everything it seems . Our family has traveled several places through the years and rented from Homeaway and other sites . Gracious Moose rates as one of the top vacation homes. We very much look forward to return to the Gracious Moose for another fun adventure together!

Fantastic home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 really enjoyed our stay at this impressive 3-story home. We traveled about 6 1/2 hours to take our children and grandchildren to Silver Dollar City to enjoy the Christmas lights. No one was disappointed in our stay. There were plenty of comfortable beds plus lots of extras. We cooked breakfast one morning and there wasn't a lack of good cookware, utensils or dishes. This is a beautiful area and is very quiet. The home was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The owners were awesome to rent from. We all had a fantastic time.

Incredible! Every detail was considered in preparing this home for guests! Our family had an amazing time as we reconnected and celebrated Thanksgiving! We had everything we needed to prepare a huge feast and plenty of space to sit down to eat it! We rested well in luxury beds! Everything is so nice and just a dream home! Thank you so much for sharing! You all were excellent to work with us! I liked seeing all of the extra pictures on your website, CanyonTrailLodges.com, that was helpful and fun to see before we came! Thanks so much for everything!

Our Amazing Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent 7 days occupying both Gracious Moose and Bear Trail for our family vacation. There were 31 of us and we absolutely loved it!!! We have rented in Pigeon Forge, TN, Galveston, TX, Orange Beach, AL and now Branson, MO. These two spaces were our best rentals by far. Thinking that we would only get starter packs (based on our experiences with other rentals) I packed dish washing liquid, laundry detergent, hand soap, etc. All of these supplies were provided in abundance! The kitchens and bathrooms were stocked like none we had ever rented before. The pictures don’t do these houses justice they are absolutely gorgeous and extremely clean. The kids loved the neighborhood pool that was right up the street. There was even a stash of handy beach towels for the kids to make use of! We are definitely planning to rent these houses again!

Owner's Response: So glad everyone enjoyed their stay at our homes, we loved having your family! It was special for me to get to meet you all and to sit and enjoy time with the women as they were cooking and baking and making the house smell terrific. I didn't want to leave! You seem like such a joyful, fun family. I just wanted to stay and join in the festivities! I do hope you all return....and tell others! Thanks!

The Gracious Moose is an excellent place to stay in the Branson area!

  • 5 of 5

Our combined family of 15 (8 adults, 7 young children) stayed at the Gracious Moose, and everyone loved it! The house is absolutely beautiful and immaculate inside and out, with premium decor and very comfy beds. We had plenty of space for everyone and everything we brought. The kitchen was very well equipped, and we were able to indulge our love of cooking big family-style meals and even did some baking during our stay. The kids loved playing with the toys and games provided, and used the bar area downstairs as an art project center. The neighborhood pool was both refreshing and convenient, as the weather was very hot throughout our stay. All of the other families we met who were staying in Branson Canyon were very nice, and our grandkids enjoying swimming with them and making new friends. From our first contact, Karin and Jennifer were extremely helpful and did everything they could to make our stay excellent. Our thanks goes out to them! We all very highly recommend the Gracious Moose if you are looking for a fun, beautifully appointed place to stay in Branson.
