What makes this house unique

Through the years of owning and updating the old country home, we have evolved it as a great place for private parties and live music events, wine tasting weekends, reunions, birthday parties and simply quiet getaways. Kat and I are constantly striving to make our home your home and will endeavor to meet your expectations. We have a yearly event (sometimes twice) that we call "Swim Pickins" and has become a regional favorite for folks to attend. Feel free to FB us at our event page Swim Pickins sometime to catch the past events and stay current with any upcoming activities.

Beautiful home & property

  • 5 of 5

Very well maintained property. Very clean & comfortable. Plenty of room for our large family! Little kids loved the “hideaway” room. Curvy drive to Branson, but nicest place to stay and very price competitive.

Eight adults and seven kids had the best time ever at this place. It had plenty of bedrooms and a wonderful outdoor space with grilling area and an in ground pool. Close to Branson and Eureka Springs. We'd highly recommend it for the perfect family gathering. LC

We had the most awesome vacation here. Everything was great. The pool with the slide was the kids favorite and the hot tub was the grownups favorite. Was so relaxing. We were close to Branson and Eureka Springs. Everything was right there within minutes from the house. The house was gorgeous and roomy for all 13 people. We plan to stay there again. Steve and Kat are really super people. Want to thank them for all they did before our arrival and during our stay. Loved it so much.

It's all about the pool !

  • 3 of 5

The kids loved the pool and spent every spare minute there. 30 min. to Eureka Sp. and 30 min. to Branson. The only negative was a 300.00 cleaning fee for a house that hadn't been cleaned very well. The owners seemed very nice.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback! Because of our own concerns with the cleaning company, we have hired a new cleaning company this week. Kat and I apologize for any sub par interior cleaning. We strive to accommodate guests in every way including a fresh clean home when you arrive. Thanks for any and all feedback as we are anxious to be doing continuous improvement at RMR. We hope you would consider visiting us again Steve and Kat
