Highland Retreat – a one-of-a-kind vacation home on Table Rock Lake in the Ozark Highlands: There can be only one.
- 6 Bedrooms
- Sleeps 24
- King Beds
- Private Indoor Pool and Spa
- Dog Friendly
- Wheelchair accessible
The view is tremendous, especially from the top deck, accessed by the catwalk above the great room. Private indoor swimming pool with spa, family room with pool table and theatre seating, and a dining area for the whole family — the Highland Retreat is the vacation home you have been dreaming about.
Treat your family as royalty in the castle-inspired great room with hints of Outlander. With gray velvet couches flanking the stone fireplace, an antique victrola converted to hidden shelves with board games, and a golden crest hand painted on the wall.
This is where your family photo will be with the light pouring in from the massive windows that stretch up to the vaulted ceiling.
Choose an honorary king and queen for each meal as there are a pair of custom handmade thrones. These thrones and the tables are inspired by an actual set at Stirling Castle in Scotland, down to every curved detail.
Your entire family or group can sit together at the two tables or play a few rounds of your favorite games. We have several decks of cards for you besides our favorite board games, including Apples to Apples, Cards Against Humanity, Bananagram, Scrabble, and more.
Truly fully equipped with all the tools you need to make your family meals, even a KitchenAid mixer, electric griddles, crock pot, several baking pans, and more…everything but the food and spices.
Two large refrigerators, several ways to make coffee (including a French press), and an electric tea kettle.
Big families are our jam! We have one of our own—6 kids between us, plus their significant others, and 3 grandkids—so we know how tough it is to keep the peace as your group size increases. Add in the grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, and those friends who are like family… and you’ve got a ton of people to please.
Our Highland Retreat isn’t just any vacation home. With amenities like a private indoor swimming pool with spa/hot tub, 2 massive covered decks with incredible views, a large dining space, and a family room with pool table, Highland Retreat will be the highlight of your trip.
Getaways with Friends
Whether your friends group is couples from your college days, guys golfing and fishing, ladies shopping and winery-hopping, or besties bringing your boats to the lake, Highland Retreat is a perfect place to hang out between adventures.
State Park Marina is around the corner. Be sure to book your slip there as soon as you book your dates with us.
Insider Info to the Area
We’re happy to share our insider info about where to get a massage, who to choose as a fishing guide, how to avoid the traffic to Silver Dollar City, who to contact for the best tee times, and lots more.
We also share our favorite places to eat, although those recommendations might be a little heavy on BBQ, Mexican, burgers and ice cream. 🙂
In fact — we have super duper special partnerships with The Haygoods that are ONLY for our guests. (Both savings and serendipity that you can’t get anywhere else!)
We also have example itineraries for families to use while exploring Branson. That includes a list of free and inexpensive activities as well as a list of not-to-miss activities. Our welcome book and area guide are in both digital and printed format so that you can access it as soon as you make your reservation and throughout your stay at Highland Retreat.
You’ll love the 6 hotel-inspired bedrooms at Highland Retreat. Each has a king-size bed with a top-of-the-line mattress wrapped in soft linens (which are crisp-white and freshly laundered). Plus, light-blocking curtains gift you with a few extra hours of dark for sleeping in.
Bedrooms with king size beds
All bedrooms also have bedside reading lamps and flat-screen smart TVs for streaming Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, Amazon, and more.
- 6 bedroom suites – yes, all bedrooms with their own bathrooms!
- All king size beds – plus 4 of the bedrooms with pull out couches as well
- Additional 2 queen sofa sleepers in the theatre area
- Wheelchair accessible – the whole main level, including 2 bedrooms

One main level bathroom is wheelchair accessible. Shower has a seat and is a transfer shower. All bedrooms have their own en-suite bathroom.
The lower level family room features a handsome pool table, theatre seating with a flat screen smart TV, and tables with a view of the pool. Great for lazy afternoons, rainy days, and evenings at home. Also has (2) queen size luxury Luonto sofa sleepers for additional sleeping.
A massive, covered back deck on the main level — or take the catwalk to the upper level deck with a bird’s eye view of Table Rock Lake and the Ozark Mountains. Settle into the expansive lounge seating and an incredible vantage point of Missouri sunsets and sunrises.
Located on the lower level, you’ll have 2 stacked full size front load sets for your use — easy peasy to throw the wet towels and swimsuits in after playing in the pool.
Kitchen and dining open living area with lake view
YES — your very own private indoor swimming pool!! With attached spa/hot tub even. We enjoy the combo when we go to Florida and thought our guests might love it, too.
You also have access to our neighborhood outdoor swimming pool with water slide a short walk down to the next street, along with the splash pad and pickleball court. The neighborhood indoor swimming pool is just two streets over.
Table Rock Lake is closer than it appears! Simply walk to the end of our street and down the hill, and a perfect quiet cove reveals itself. This shallow cove is great for wading, splashing, and a bit of fishing.
WOW! What a vacation home. The house was beautiful!!! We had a wonderful time there.
The game room was just the get away the guys needed and the dining room and living room was the place the girls needed to relax. The pool was a perfect place for all the kids and the club house was very nice.
Everything we needed was there in the house. Everyone that stayed wanted to take the house with them. Everyone just loved the floor plan and the use of space.

NEIGHBORHOOD SWIMMING POOLS
Our neighborhood outdoor swimming pool is a short walk or quick drive up the street and has a waterslide that “will shoot you out like a cannon” according to one of our guests. We quite agree that the waterslide is a “blast!”
The neighborhood heated indoor swimming pool is a hop, skip, and jump over to the next street and open for fun.
PLAYGROUND and PICKLEBALL
The fenced playground and the pickleball court are next to the outdoor pool. Please bring your own pickleball gear for your friendly games.
The lakefront park is at the end of the street on the far side of the neighborhood. Listen to the lake lap against the shoreline and chill at the picnic tables and Adirondack chairs around the fire pit (bring your own firewood). *Note that you cannot see the lake through the trees but you can hear it.
Table Rock Lake is accessible down Dale Avenue at a public boat ramp as well as around the corner at State Park Marina. The Dewey Short Center at the dam also has a courtesy dock for boats.
You can’t get any closer to the marina!
