Nat and Tyann (Marcink) Hammond

We eloped on the Isle of Skye in an abandoned chapel

perched on a cliff overlooking the sea during 60mph gusts of wind with snow, hail, rain, and a rainbow. Between us we have 6 kids, 3 grandchildren, and 2 bonus grandsons.

Our favorite adventures include kayaking into the bio luminescence in Grand Cayman, exploring castles in Scotland, and surfing in Kauai.

We have two brands of vacation rental homes: Branson Family Retreats (voted Best Family Lodging in Branson) and Missouri Haus (located in Missouri wine country, just west of St. Louis).

Not sure what to do while you are in Branson? Take a look at our family’s favorite activities here, as well as many others to choose from.

We’re excited about sharing our vacation homes with you and hope you and yours enjoy them as much as we do!
