We’re Nat and Tyann of Branson Family Retreats

Frequent travelers, second-generation vacation rental owners/managers, and parents (with 6 kids and 3 grandkids between us!). 

At Branson Family Retreats, you’ll find homes that we built specifically for families vacationing in Branson and on Table Rock Lake, as well as a selection of properties that we manage for others in the area.

A few more facts about us:

  • We eloped on the Isle of Skye, and said our vows in an abandoned chapel perched on a seaside cliff, while being blown around by 60 mph gusts of wind and splattered with snow, hail, and rain… and we wouldn’t change a thing. We even had a rainbow as a treat and were featured in Conde Naste Traveler.

Nat and Tyann

  • We have two vacation rental home brands: Branson Family Retreats (voted Best Family Lodging in Branson) and Missouri Haus (located in Missouri wine country, just west of St. Louis). One of our Missouri Haus properties is a historical 1902 bank building, complete with the original vaults.  
  • Tyann has been a leader in vacation rentals since basically before Airbnb was a thing! She has taught numerous vacation rental workshops and presented at industry conferences about vacation rental photography, marketing, management, the guest experience and more. Learn more about Tyann at tyannmarcink.com. 
  • Nat was in the IT field for 25 years, working with project managers and web developers to create, update, and maintain websites for large clients like MasterCard, Maritz Motivation Solutions, and US Bank. He frequently volunteers for the Humane Society of Missouri and the local Harvest Table, which serves meals to families in need.

Not sure what to do while you are in Branson?  We compiled this list of our family’s favorite activities, with some extras thrown in, too. 

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

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a place of rest, peace and togetherness for families and friends. 

We believe that shared memories are at the core of strong relationships, and we consider it a job well done if we can help you, our guests, make memories that keep your family close for a lifetime—no matter the makeup of your family unit.

We celebrate diversity in families, friends, friends who are like family, and of course, four-legged family members. The important part is connecting and being together.


Giving back

Another way we honor the power and beauty of families of all kinds is through our support of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for foster children. Tyann serves on the board of directors for Franklin County CASA, and Branson Family Retreats/Missouri Haus donates $1 per booked night at all of our vacation rentals to support their efforts.

We also give our guests the opportunity to donate to CASA when they book with us. At check out, we provide the option to add a donation of $1/night or $1/person. Many guests have taken the opportunity to support CASA along with us, and we are thrilled to present the donation check at the end of the year.
