Starting this summer, The Ozarker Lodge in Branson, Missouri, welcomes family travelers seeking an outdoors-filled vacation. Under Springboard Hospitality, The Ozarker Lodge will be the first true boutique hotel in Branson. Featuring 102 guestrooms, the new property invites guests to also enjoy its creative amenities, social spaces and experiences among the Ozarks.

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.

Families can enjoy cozy evenings at the lodge before heading out to nearby sites like Table Rock Lake and Branson’s many attractions, museums and stores. Room rates start at $109 per night.
