Rooms embrace those nostalgic memories of simple evenings with family, complete with a lobby with a coffee and wine bar, floating fireplace and communal guest pantry. Perfect for alfresco gatherings, The Ozarker will also feature a large outdoor pool, cozy fire pits, cedar soaking tubs, an events pavilion and a natural playground for children. There will even be a dedicated space for local food trucks to pop up.


Families can select designated family rooms, with queen-sized beds situated beneath twin beds in a bunk bed-style arrangement. The property doesn’t want guests to leave furry friends at home either, encouraging families to bring their dog along with them on their Ozark adventures.
