Moonlit Waters

Family reunion dreams


With a relaxing view of Table Rock Lake, plus a dreamy interior design that is not only happy and fun but also family friendly and accessible, Moonlit Waters is an easier choice than which of the fabulous live stage shows to see in the Live Music Show Capital of the World (aka Branson, MO).

Tucked into the corner of the Branson Cove neighborhood, our new lodge is right around the corner from State Park Marina and only 5 to 20 minutes to nearly all of the major attractions.

Dog-friendly, wheelchair accessible, king beds, private heated swim spa pool (coming winter 2022), and family room with pool table and theatre area, Moonlit Waters will charm your entire group.

Our community of Branson Cove is right off Hwy. 265, giving you easy access to the traffic relief routes to move about the Branson area easily.

Whether your family shares the same last name, or you each have a different last name and call one another family, Moonlit Waters is the gathering place to reunite and strengthen the friendships and bonds.


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, Moonlit Waters is a perfect place to hang out between adventures.


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. 🙂

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 Moonlit Waters.


The Great Room is the relaxed hangout spot and gathering place for your group (besides the decks — more about those later). Table Rock Lake views are perfectly complemented by the nap-worthy sofas, a large flatscreen TV, and stone fireplace. The open layout leads seamlessly to the dining area and kitchen.


Keep the conversation going while you cook—the kitchen is open to the dining area and Great Room. And when we say it is “stocked” — we mean STOCKED.

This kitchen has it all: full place settings, stainless flatware, drink ware, stemware, cooking utensils, pots and pans, baking dishes, crockpot, muffin tins, and even cookie sheets to bake cookies with Grandma.

And there’s more: a dishwasher, large refrigerator (2nd one downstairs), glass top cooktop, double ovens, microwave, toaster, coffee pot, blender, waffle maker, and a KitchenAid mixer. Start the day with waffles and end it with margaritas on the deck.

If you’re a coffee-loving crew, there’s also a Keurig brewing system. Be sure to bring your favorite K-cups or pick some up at the grocery store 10 minutes away.


You’ve got a big family, we’ve got a big table + seating at our counter and the kitchen island. A chair for you, a chair for dad, a chair for Uncle Bob, a chair for cousin Lucy, a chair for everyone — even the highchair for baby Kate.


You’ll quickly fall in love with Moonlit Waters’ spa-inspired bedrooms with top-of-the-line mattresses wrapped in crisp-white soft linens and topped with luxurious down alternative pillows. It’s not unusual for our guests to decide they need the same mattress and pillows at their own home. (Yes, we will share our bedding secrets with you!)

All bedrooms also have bedside reading lamps and flat-screen smart TVs for streaming Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, Amazon, and more.

Moonlit Waters as a total of 10 bedrooms, with 9 of them having en suite bathrooms.


The family game room at Moonlit Waters is on the lower level, with access by stairs both inside and outside off the lower deck. The game room area features a sleek pool table, with theatre seating (coming soon) and a big screen TV in the other half of the room. Great for lazy afternoons, rainy days, and evenings at home while watching the sun set over the Ozark Mountains.


Grab the camera and drink in the views of Table Rock Lake and the Ozark Mountains. The top deck is off the upstairs bedroom. Lucky family member who gets to wake up to the view each morning!! With lounge seating, the sisterhood might make this spot their late night hangout.

The large, covered main level back deck has expansive lounge seating, dining table with benches, and two gas grills for grilling burgers for your big crew. 

The lower level deck is off the game room and is also covered. Grab your swimsuit for the private swim spa (coming 2023), sit back in the lounge chairs, and enjoy your family.


A washer and dryer in the laundry area on the main level for your use.


Baby needs lots of stuff, so we have a few items to lighten your travel load. Our Moonlit Waters lodge has a high chair, a pack-n-play, and an umbrella stroller that you are welcome to use during your stay. (We don’t provide baby blankets or sheets, so be sure to bring those with you.)

Branson Family Retreats

We had such an awesome vacation and stay here! Can’t say enough good things about this property and the manager Tyann. Entire property was brand new and exactly as expected from the pictures. Massive house with so much space for our extended family of 20. The kitchen was perfectly equipped and the movie theater room and game room were a huge hit with the kids. Already talking about booking again next year! I can’t imagine how amazing this place will be when the community is totally finished. 5 stars all the way!!

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 indoor swimming pool is a hop, skip, and jump over to the next street and open for fun.

Branson Cove outdoor pool is open!


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.
