Description of the Branson vacation cabin rental
3 bedroom, 2 bath, log cabin w/ loft, hot tub & jacuzzi!
We are so glad you have found our vacation log cabin, Cross Timbers Lodge! We fell in love with this area near Table Rock Lake and believe you will too! Only 8 miles south of Branson, this location offers the best of both worldsa quiet home away from home, yet within 10 minutes of all Branson has to offer.

Why this is the perfect place to get-away:

1. Privacy---this is so much better than staying in a condo or hotel---it is a
custom built home with all the features you’d expect in a luxury log cabin.

2. With 3 bedrooms & 2 living areas, there is room for everyone (1550 sq ft). No
need to rent multiple rooms for your large or extended family. The cabin has a split
floor plan with the master suite on one side with it's own private bath. 2 other
bedrooms (one with a queen bed, and one with 2 twin beds) are on the other side
of the home and share a hall bath. A queen sleeper sofa is in the downstairs living
area, and we have a fabulous upstairs loft with another queen sleeper sofa.

3.If you are looking for a romantic getaway, look no further as our jacuzzi tub,
private hot tub on deck, and wood burning fireplace offer plenty of cozy
places to snuggle up with the one you love!

4. If you want to save money & cook, our fully furnished kitchen offers
everything you need. If not, you’re only 10 minutes away from Branson.

5. There is SO much to do in Branson. Check out our "Attractions" page for a
list of our favorites.

If you are considering family vacation plans, or a couple's getaway, we hope you
will reserve some time at our cabin. We love it and believe you will too!

Wonderful vacation home!

We just came back from a weeks vacation at this fantastic cabin with our 2 adult children and their spouses. We were pleasantly surprised to find that it lived up to all the reviews. It was cozy yet spacious at the same time. A great location between Branson and Table Rock Lake. We went kayaking at Table Rock & hiking at Dogwood Canyon. We spent a day visiting some wineries and a distillery, did a cave tour at Talking Rocks Cavern and even did a Ghost Tour in historic Branson. Each night we came home to this lovely cabin to enjoy a game of cards on the deck and relax in the hot tub. All in all, a wonderful trip!

Sounds like you had a great vacation! So glad you enjoyed the cabin and that it was a comfortable resting place after all your adventures!

Every thing you need!

Thank you, Lauers, for sharing your beautiful cabin with us! Dana was extremely easy to work with, quick to communicate and pleasant. We made our reservations very close to our trip and she was wonderfully accommodating with our arrangements. When you read the description of this cabin, it is 100% accurate. Along with firewood stocked to keep you toasty warm, there is a great collection of information about the cabin, the surrounding area, and specific information about things to do in and around Branson area. We have stayed in cabins and condos that were bare of essentials upon my arrival. This cabin was great – stocked with everything needed to get our vacation started. It even had coffee, salt-and-pepper, and a few other non-perishables in the pantry. There is a convenience store just minutes away and a grocery a little farther away for the rest of anything you could need. The rest of EVERYTHING "Branson" is within 15 minutes to an hour's drive. The cabin is far enough away from the tourism of 76 to feel like you're in the country yet close enough to take part in all of the fun. We stayed over Spring Break with our five kids (all under 12) and the cabin was perfect. The generous amount of sleeping space gave everyone plenty of room. The draw of the loft, however, was too much for the kids and they all piled up there to sleep! The cabin is beautifully decorated and in perfect condition. Pictures do not do it justice. Overall, a great getaway!

Dana Lauer

Owner's reply:

So happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We love to hear of families having a great time together, and we are blessed to know that we were some small part of that. Our family also loves the peaceful, country feel of the cabin and the surrounding area, yet just a short drive to all the activities in Branson. Definitely hope you'll be our guests again!



Great Place to Stay

We needed a place to stay last minute and the Lauers were more than willing to help us out. After three nights at a Springfield hotel this cabin was a relief. Super comfortable, well furnished, located right across the street from Big Cedar Lodge and an amazing view from the hot tub on the back porch. We would love to stay again in the future.

Dana Lauer

Owner's reply:

So glad our cabin was available for you and your family. We have also found renting vacation homes to be so much more comfortable than a hotel room. Thanks for taking time to provide this review to let other guests know what you enjoyed about our cabin.

Perfect vacation getaway

We were amazed at the beauty of this cabin. The kids loved the loft area and we enjoyed the fireplace nightly. It was great to go do things during the day and get to come "home" in the evening. So much better than a cramped hotel. It made for an unforgettable New Years eve roasting marshmallows and relaxing in the hot tub. We will definitely be returning for another stay!

Dana Lauer

Owner's reply:

Thank you Shannon for taking time to share with future guests about our cabin. Everyone loves the hot tub---espcially in the winter time----and roasting marshmallows in the fireplace is always an added plus. We would love to have y'all as guests again.

We spent Thanksgiving week in Branson at the Lauer cabin. The accommodations were fantastic, Branson was fun, and Table Rock lake is beautiful. We had a great family vacation.

Dana Lauer

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much for taking the time to share about your Thanksgiving week at our cabin. We love our cabin and the area, and truly find it to be the perfect place to retreat. We're so glad to hear your family enjoyed it as well.

Beauitiful, Peaceful, Great Place to Stay!

This place is great! Went up with a few friends for the weekend & really enjoyed the beauitiful cabin. Very close to Branson & all that it has to offer, but it is very secluded & has a great frisbee golf course. I highly recommend the cabin! Very clean, open & rustic!

Dana Lauer

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much for taking the time to share your experience with prospective guests. The frisbee golf course is a recent addition so we appreciate the feedback! We are so glad you enjoyed the cabin and hope you will be our guest again.

Great time!

Our family of 5 plus grandparents had a wonderful time at your cabin. The area around the cabin is beautiful and relaxing and made us feel like we were away from the hustle and bustle of Branson's strip, but yet all the activities were close by. We loved the hot tub each night and the kids loved the many tvs so they could each watch what they wanted - no fighting. We liked being able to cook our own meals and there was plenty of room for us to be together inside or outside. We hated to leave and hope to come back again.

Dana Lauer

Owner's reply:

Thank you Lori---so glad you had such a relaxing time. We would love for you & your family to be our guests again!

This was our third year to enjoy the accommodations of the Lauers cabin and we love everything it has to offer. There is plenty of room for all seven adults and one child to all stay in one place. It is a cozy and rustic place far enough out of the busy part of Branson but yet close enough to enjoy it too.

Dana Lauer

Owner's reply:

We are so happy that you have chosen our cabin to spend your annual family vacations in Branson. Thanks so much for the positive review!

Great place to stay

Nice, clean, place to stay. We had 10 people and there was enough room for all of us. Also kind of secluded so it is very quiet. Close to lake and close to branson. Loved the hot tub and the kids loved the wi-fi. However the golf course it is on is closed and the pool is kinda small. Also could use more towels. Would definately recommend to friends.

Dana Lauer

Owner's reply:

Thanks for your review! We are glad to know you and your family enjoyed the cabin. The peaceful location, & the hot tub are everyone's favorites! We were hoping the golf course would be re-opened but the owners have decided to add other amenities such as sand volleyball, horse shoe pits, walking trails, and eventually (hopefully soon) a 2nd pool. We love being close to several top-notch golf courses such as Branson Creek. We hope you will be our guests again. (We passed along the suggestion regarding more towels to our cleaning staff---thanks for letting us know).

Feels Like Home

From the moment we arrived, this cabin felt like home. Our teenager LOVED having the loft to herself. Everything was so clean and nice. It is close enough to everything to be convenient and far enough away to be quiet and secluded. Our grandsons both had so much fun they were exhausted and ready for bed early every evening. We spent most every evening just sitting on the deck laughing and talking and enjoying being a family. It was such a blessing to have a whole week there to just relax and reconnect with the ones we love. The wildlife in the mornings was a welcome treat as well. It was an absolutely wonderful experience and I would highly recommend it to everyone...whether you are a retired couple, a young family with lots of kids or a multi-generational group like for everyone! Thanks to the Lauer family for sharing their home with us!

Dana Lauer

Owner's reply:

We LOVE to hear that our caibn is a great place for families to relax & make memories! We're so glad you guys enjoyed yourselves and we hope you'll be our guests again.

Great cabin for a relaxing time

The cabin was well furnished and offered all the amenities of home for our family. It wqas great for both small kids as well as adults. The loft is great for older kids to have their area and it is nice to have flat screen tv's in all of the bedrooms and living areas. The back deck is spacious and the hot tub is a nice offering as well. The development is very quiet and also offers games, picni areas, a swimming pool, and even sand volleyball and horseshoes. Overall, we had a very relaxing vacation and would definately come back again.

Dana Lauer

Owner's reply:

Thank you for sharing with us the things you enjoyed about our cabin. The hot tub is always a favorite among guests! We are so glad you & your family enjoyed yourselves and we would love to have you as guests again.

Janet Cogswell



The cabin was clean (except some dusty ceiling fans and tv cabinet), exceptional space, fireplace logs were stocked, needed to have more lighters (the two were about empty), the hot tub was awesome, and the fireplace was cozy. I would recommend this to anyone :)

Dana Lauer

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much for your review Janet. I'm so glad we were able to accommodate your requests. We've started scheduling "deep cleans" for the cabin so no more dusty ceiling fans! Hope you'll get to be our guest again.

Cross Timbers Lodge

Our family enjoyed every minute of our trip to Branson and the cabin at Cross Timbers Lodge was extremely nice! We would absolutely stay there again!

Carol Shaffer



We were so relaxed in this log cabin with all furnishings and personal extra items that were like you would find in a five star resort. We were near all sights..they supplied up to date info on all local shows and sights to see. The kitchen was large with plenty of room to cook and feel right at home. The sheets and towels were top quality...the cabin was immaculate. There were extra things to make it feel like home away from popcorn maker with popcorn..books, games, magazines. Tv in every room. Cat wait to go back again!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

A perfect location and a perfect house for our family of six. My wife and I have 4 kids (ages 17, 15, 13 and 9) and I can't imagine a better place to have spent a week. This place is convenient to Branson yet out of the way. There was plenty of places to sleep (3 rooms + loft) and a huge kitchen/living area for hanging out. We spent more time than we expected at the cabin because it was so nice!
T. Stevens, Indiana, June May 2010

What a Beautiful Cabin...with all the Comforts of Home! It was the ideal location for our trips to Branson, Silver Dollar City, Dogwood Canyon and Table Rock Lake. THANK YOU...our family really enjoyed staying here and look forward to staying here again next year!
