If you are looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of Branson (only 20 min by car) or a great place to fish, swim or relax, this is the place for you! Sit on the lake shore and watch the Branson Belle pass by or take in a beautiful sunrise and sunset.

This home comfortably sleeps up to 7 people with two queen beds, two twin beds in the open-loft area (referred to as the 3rd bedroom area) and a queen pullout sofabed in the living area. New furnishings, earth tone colors and huge windows throughout make for a comfortable and serene setting among the trees.

Great getaway!

December 14, 2015

Love this house and everything about it. We stayed at the tall tree retreat previously and loved that as well. It's a great getaway plus the lake is in the backyard, can't beat that. Plan on staying here many times in the future. Awesome rustic feel inside and everything is pretty much provided, just bring your food and you're set.

Weekend Retreat

October 7, 2015

Beautiful getaway to secluded area just the right distance from Branson. Referring to the lodging as a "cottage" is a little misleading, as it is a fully furnished house with all the modern amenities. Hot tub, fire pit, and Table Rock are all right off the back deck. Price is very reasonable and the owners clearly put a lot of care into the upkeep of the home. This is a great place to stay for anyone traveling from out of town or anyone local ust looking for a weekend getaway.

Derek and Jennifer Patterson

Owner's reply:

Glad you enjoyed the stay. We call it a "Cottage" for the design of the home being a story and a half with large vaulted ceiling. You are correct in that it's not a smallish property like some "cottages" would seem to indicate.

The other property, the "Retreat" is much more rustic in it's design and decor. Hope to have you back at the Retreat (or Cottage) to check it out this winter when we are running our $99/ night couples weekends !

Room for Everyone

This was the perfect place for my husband and I and four kids to stay for a fun Branson weekend. The house is lovely and the beautiful lake setting just can't be beat. The kids especially loved the hot tub. The house was stocked with everything we needed and the beds were comfortable. We would absolutely recommend this place to our friends!

This cottage was so beautiful, the pictures don't do it justice! It was a very relaxing atmosphere, we had fun sitting by the fire every night and hanging out in the hot tub. They provided games and movies for kids. We will definitely be back! The owners respond right away to emails and were very helpful. Thanks for the great stay!

Derek and Jennifer Patterson

Owner's reply:

So glad you had a great stay. We just love that part of the lake... glad you do too :) Look us up again this Summer or even Fall is a great time for the changing of the color of leaves.

Great for relaxing

February 18, 2015

Very nice home and the view of the lake is amazing, plus it's just a short walk down to the edge. If the weather was warmer, that's where we would have spent more time. It has a very nice kitchen that really makes you feel at home. We did all of our meals there and it was so easy. The ceiling in the upstairs bedroom is a little too close to the bed, but other than that, we love staying with these owners and at their two properties. This was our fourth time and it won't be the last. They beat anything we've ever seen in Branson. We wouldn't think of spending a weekend getaway anywhere else.

Derek and Jennifer Patterson

Owner's reply:

Glad to have you return again, and again and again :) That says a lot for sure. The bedroom you mention is unique in that it's a half story vaulted ceiling and with a Queen bed it does come close to one edge of the bed... but makes it cozy feeling (like a cottage should be). Thanks again for your repeat business.

Wonderful Lake Retreat for the Family

February 2, 2015

I took my family to the cottage for a weekend away. This cottage has outstanding furnishings, a well prepped kitchen, cozy bedding, and a wonderful lake view! We made use of the board games, the Hot Tub, and drank wine in front of the fireplace. By far the most relaxing mini-vacation we have ever had! Very clean & neat! Truly a home away from home and we plan to return many times in the future!

Fabulous Family time!

July 15, 2014

This was our second time to stay with you (January 2014 was the first). We absolutely loved it. It is the perfect place for a family to enjoy the outdoors and time together. The only thing I wish was different would be the access to the lake. I had my 70 year old mother with me and she could not handle the rocks to get in to the lake. It would be awesome if this could be a more "beach like" area for easy access into the water. We do, however, plan to come back next year!

Spring Break 2013

March 25, 2013

We rented this property for a spring break getaway with our three kids, ages 15, 14, and 10. We all loved the house. My son fell in love with his bedroom upstairs and wants one just like it at home. My youngest daugher loved the hot tub and used it every morning and every evening. The house was beautifully decorated and felt very welcoming. Everything was very neat and clean. It snowed while we were there and the fireplace was perfect. I loved that the kitchen was well stocked with utensils and cookware, but most of all, many staple items needed for cooking that I always seem to forget when we rent a home or condo. It saved me a trip to store ( I forgot the sugar this time). Because of the cold weather and snow, we didn't get to enjoy the lake. We hope to go back when it is warmer so that we can. This is an awesome place for a vacation!! We loved the location. It was secluded and quite but not too far away from all the fun stuff.

Perfect extended family trip.

May 31, 2012

This is a 5 star property, worth every cent. The location is excellent (though you do wonder if you're on the right track as you take the secluded gravel road down to the lakefront!). Peaceful with a short walk to the water through forest.. A true getaway property but not too bad a drive into Branson. The deck with outdoor speakers and hot tub, plus an easy gas grill, meant we stayed to relax in the cabin more than we intended because it was so fun! Enough room inside for family games night or a bit of space when naps are needed(!)- even with 8 it feels roomy. We rented a boat from Big Cedar and the men of the group drove the boat over and picked us up right on our lakeside cove- amazing! Family owned and easy to work with owners. Hope to come back someday.

Everything about this cottage is amazing! Clean and cozy, great lake view! Espically from the hot tub!! Loved watching the stars while relaxing in the bubbling hot water. The tub for two, the fireplace, surround sound and comfy furnishings made for a very romantic stay. A quiet getaway.......that isn't so far away! We totally enjoyed ourselves. :)

We wanted a quiet get away, found this on-line and were so pleased with the cottage, the amenities and the Patterson's we dealt with. Very professional and can't say enough about them. We we all very pleased and will be return patrons. Will tell everyone Tall Tree is the place to go. We look forward to going again next year several times.

The Tall Tree Cottage was very relaxing and exactly what we were looking for. We will be returning sometime when it gets warmer outside. I would have loved to have a fire down by the lake, but was just to cold for that. We did spend alot of time in the hot tub watching it snow. It was beautiful! You have a awesome set up there. Can't wait to return.

The Secluded "Tall Tree Cottage".

March 24, 2009

The facility was beyond our expectations. Our family of five,which includes three children,were able to roast marshmellows and hot dogs over an outdoor fire. This was a first for two of our children. Everything we needed was there and the close proximity of "Branson" was available for a quick trip to enjoy restaurants or shows. The "point",or property, was left to our family alone and we enjoyed the seclusion. We heard the call of a "Loon" and were able to see him in the cove, on two different occasions. A truely beautiful setting for a small family or two people who want to be alone. The surroundings were beautiful and though the tress were bare, I can imagine it even more picturesque after Spring arrives. The "cottage's" layout was perfect and one felt at home the minute they arrived. We appreciated the owners sharing their "hide away cottage" with us. Our stay will always be a fond memory.

Incredible Place

My wife and I stayed at the Tall Tree Cabin and found it to be a wonderful place to stay. We could have stayed on the strip and saved a few dollars, but this place turned out to be worth every penny. The cabin is incredibly clean and well taken care of. The view is spectacular. We will definitely be back with our kids and some friends.

Our stay at Tall Tree Cottage was awesome! It was very quiet. We had a very relaxing weekend which was exactly what we were looking for. The house was beautiful. The decor was very warm & inviting which made things feel very much like home. We are planning on returning over the summer sometime so that we can enjoy the lake.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

It was a lovely, secluded place for our family and we used every bit of the place, yard, lake, woods, deck and those lovely bathrooms. It was close to the places we needed to get to as well. Thank you for allowing us to stay. It might just be where we go again! The seclusion is what we liked about it, no one looking on you.

The perfect getaway, June 11 2015

Our two daughters spent a weekend in Tall Tree Retreat last fall and decided this was the place for our summer family gathering. Spent four enjoyable nights in this lovely home secluded on a cove of Table Rock Lake (one of our families stayed in the Tall Tree Retreat just a few steps away). The cottage was comfortably furnished with everything needed for a relaxing stay. A large deck was great for grilling, dining and for star gazing. We used the short easy to walk path to the lake for fishing and relaxing around a bonfire. We spent a day on the lake tubing, a day at Silver Dollar City with the best day just hanging out with the family at the cottage. It is a very nice quiet place to be with everything that you may want to do just a short drive into Branson. Everyone wants to come back again next year.

Thank you for sharing your home,
Gary K

Thank you for a great vacation spot. We all had a wonderful time. We brought a canoe and appreciated the easy access to the lake. You have a great off-the-beaten-path location. We all had a biking afternoon at Dogwood Canyon and rented a pontoon at Long Creek Marina. We got groceries at Harter House in Hollister. Thanks for all the great tips!

We enjoyed our stay at your Cottage! The easy access to the water was perfect! We loved listening to country music on the patio and playing games while the toddler slept inside with quiet! Perfection! We had s'mores every night at the fire pit and shared many laughs. Not much is a more perfect vacation than soaking up sun, boating, grilling and fire in the woods! Thank you for sharing your place!

Our vacation week was amazing! Our kids said it was better than Disney World! Here are a couple of things we learned: -Dana's BBQ in Branson is great! -Ride the Ducks was fun for kids and adults -Boating info AR is beautiful -We did not see one snake ( we were very prepared for this!) -Cliff jumping east of the house was a highlight for my eight year old -Walmart in West Branson is so much better The information in the books were very helpful! Thanks for an amazing week!

Thank you so much for providing a wonderful place to stay. Our family all moved to different locations at the same time 5 years ago and we have not spent a Christmas together in 5 years. We had the best time here, the guys went fishing. The house was a perfect layout and gave us plenty of room to play games. Thank you again so much for helping to bring our family together for Christmas. We will always remember this place and have fond memories to last us a lifetime.

Thank you so much for opening your home to us. From the moment we stepped inside, we felt that "comfy" feeling. What a relaxing place to be. We spent our time at Silver Dollar City, Dixie Stampede, Rented a pontoon and spent the day on the lake swimming and tubing. Our children and grandchildren had a great time. Your home is beautiful and you are such a pleasant couple to deal with !

As we were driving here up and down hills and around curves, I was thinking this is the boonies! But when we arrived at the Cottage and walked inside, it was WOW! We shopped, saw the Legends and cruised the Showboat Branson Belle (what a meal). We spent our evening grilling, eating in and playing Aggravation. This is a beautiful and relaxing place. We plan on coming back in a couple years. The lake is clean, nothing like the lakes in Southern Illinois! God bless!

Your Tall Tree Cottage is just the perfect place. Beautiful home in a beautiful, peaceful setting. We loved our stay and found everything we needed to make our stay a great one.

Thank you for sharing your home. Coming from Arizona it far exceeded our expectations. You have really thought of everything down to the last detail. We would love to make this an annual vacation for our family and will contact you next year about returning. The quiet nights, comfortable beds and all of the conveniences of home makde our stay outstanding. We got on the lake (boating and jet skied), fished Dogwood Canyon and saw a show in Branson. Thank you again!

We enjoyed our stay at the cottage. We loved the privacy and having some quiet time to enjoy family fun. We liked visiting Branson area and enjoyed the College of the Ozarks, the Fish Hatchery tour, and riding the ducks. We had a marvelous time tubing out on the lake. We hope to return again next summer.

Once again we had a wonderful time at Tall Tree Cottage. We truely enjoyed having the lake so close to the deck (from the flooding this spring). You could here the fish jumping and the water lapping on the "new" beach when boats went by. We had a nice mix of rain and sun making being lazy the right thing to do. Best wishes on your new cabin that you just completed.

Peace and Grace to you all...

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Opening your beautiful cottage to us really made our daughters first trip to Kanakuk even more of a treat!
After her first week away from home, it was so nice for her to come here and relax with us over the weekend. We all had a wonderful time on the lake and hanging out here as a family !
We were joined by sister, her husband and baby as well as my mother. The 8 of us had more than enough room and were so impressed by your attention to detail. You have not missed one thing!
I can easily say that we look forward to seeing you again next year for our annual Kanakuk trip and hopefully in-between!
We will be recommending your new cabin to friends that may be joining us at Kanakuk next year as well.

Blessings to you --

Derek & Jennifer,
I had a wonderful girls weekend with my 82 year old grandmother, sister, aunt, and stepmom at the cottage. You had thought of every detail. Our favorite parts were sitting in the hot tub with a glass of wine & looking at the amazing scenery. We also enjoyed a campfire where we roasted hot dogs & made smores. It was a memorable weekend and we all said we would definitely rent the cottage again.

Thank You,

Derek and Jennifer,
We had a wonderful weekend at your beautiful lake home (Tall Tree Cottage on Tablerock Lake) and we found the area to be completely relaxing and secluded, but close enough to be in Branson in minutes when we wanted to be. Our family loved the hot tub and the girls really loved sleeping in the loft. You have decorated so beautifully and we will recommend this to our family and friends (We already have.) Thanks for a great get away weekend and we look forward to staying again in the future!

Hello! Thank you so much for graciously opening your lovely cottage (Tall Tree Cottage) to us. You truly have a beautiful home. We really enjoyed laying in the hot tub, playing games, and just lounging around. And we especially enjoyed the very easy-to-use fireplace! We were all very comfortable on the furniture, and had a great weekend of relaxation.

Thank you again and have a very happy New Year!

Thank you so much, we had a great time at Tall Tree Cottage on Tablerock Lake ! It was very thoughtful of you to put up the Christmas decorations and tree. All of my family have seen the house and will let all of their friends who visit know. Our favorite thing to do was spend some alone time in the Hot Tub after the kids all went to bed.

Happy Holidays!

Thank you for allowing us to share your beautiful home (Tall Tree Cottage on Tablerock Lake).

The boys enjoyed fishing at the waters edge. John and I enjoyed reading by the fire & watching the birds at the feeder.

We enjoyed an afternoon of shopping at The Landing then a quick stop at the Go-carts.

It was just the perfect hibernation spot to enjoy our Thanksgiving weekend ! Saturday night was spent watching the "Border Showdown" -- with the Kids rooting for KU and the parents for MU! Go MU ! Go KU !

Matt and I did spy a doe eating in the woods while John and Ross were on a walk! John was bummed he never saw a deer !

Thanks again,

God Bless

Thanks for sharing your home with us! Our 16 year old loved walking down to the lake and fishing. We all loved the solitude. As regulars at Chateau and Big Cedar, we have high standards and we were pleased ! We had a great trip - visited U of Arkansas for Matt, went to a wedding for a local young man we know, shot alot of clays at Ozark Shooters, fished Taneycomo - and always had wonderful evenings here -

Happy Holidays!

10/28/07 Positive Thank you so much for opening your home to us!

It was a delight to stay in and we really appreciate all of the little accomodations you provided. From the cotton balls to the coffee creamer, it seems you thought of everything! It seems like you have picked an ideal spot for a vacation cottage. The lake was gorgeous and the woods were so still and calm.

We really appreciate all your careful thought and preparation. Thanks again! Best wishes.

10/28/07 Positive Dear Patterson's:

We have completely enjoyed our stay here! Your house is SO beautiful out here and the weather and color of the leaves didn't hurt!

Some highlights from our stay at Tall Tree: 1) reliving childhood by playing "Mousetrap" - we were so glad you had all the pieces but not so sure why the (childrens) game was so hard for twenty-somethings; 2) enjoying walks along your beach; 3) soaking in the hot tub and jacuzzi; 4) fishing out at Table Rock Dam - no fish caught; 5) building a campfire and scaring ourselves with ghost stories.

We are so glad we found this place as it was a much needed break from work and school!

Don't be too surprised to hear from us again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Everything is so nice, new and clean. You guys covered everything - we could tell you put a lot of thought into this. Your decor is superb and professionally done. We liked the evening sounds of tree frogs and crickets; a very soothing sound. We grilled out several times and made use of the beautiful deck, whether my wife was sitting out there reading or I was soaking in the hot tub -- it was very relaxing.

Linda and I have stayed many places like this and we both agree this is the best. We look forward to our next stay at Tall Tree Cottage on Tablerock Lake.
