Our pool is usually open mid-May and stays open until mid-September, pending weather. It is a chlorine-filtered pool, five-feet deep in the deep end and three feet in the shallow end.
With our multiplication of children and grandchildren among our staff, we fully understand the need to “corral the kids”– so we built a nice fence around the playground area and placed well positioned benches for all the adults. Of course, you may have to try the rope lattice climbing challenge yourself or chase the kids through the curved slide.
The lakefront deck where our pavilion sits was the first thing we built after purchasing the resort in 1983. The cedar logs for the posts were later harvested locally, then peeled and honed here for construction so that all guests can enjoy the changing great views of Lake Taneycomo. This area can be reserved ahead for your special gatherings at no charge.
There’s nothing like a campfire! It draws good conversations and makes memories. It warms the faces and the hearts sitting around it. The smell of hardwood burning just wafts away worries . . . That’s the motivation behind our lakefront firepits — for all to enjoy, year round. We’ve stacked the wood, so just BYOM! (Bring your own marshmallows.)
Grandma Carolyn Lilley inherited her green thumb from her mother, Margaret Harvey, who lived with her and Jerry in Branson for the latter part of her 102 years of life. Well into her 90’s, Margaret worked in her yard tending to the flowers there. Carolyn, at age 82, still plans, plants and tends our landscape, both here at the resort and at her home down the road.
