Best Place to Yahtzee

The Lodge at Sky Harbor Resort is a great spot to take the family for a weekend away.

​Sky Harbor Resort


This is one mini-vacation where packing light is frowned upon. With a massive dining room table that can seat 20, this winter retreat is ideal for game night with the family, so load up with your favorite board games, and don’t forget to pack plenty of food and drink. The Lodge, one of the recently remodeled cabins at Sky Harbor Resort (1434 Trace Hollow Rd., Lampe), is the perfect spot for a day of family fun. With access to Table Rock Lake right out the back door, a cozy great room with a gas fireplace and a private bedroom and two bathrooms, you and the family will feel right at home. The oversized kitchen with its spacious bar will quickly become a buffet area as aunts, uncles and cousins race in for a quick bite before heading back out for another game of shuffle board or horseshoes. If it’s not too cold outside, gather the family around the outdoor kitchen while dinner cooks on the grill. 

With seating for 20, this dining table can easily be transformed into the perfect spot for family game night.

Road Trip!

The kids may be along for the ride, but that doesn’t mean the adults can’t have some fun, too. If you’re headed down Highway 13, make a quick pit stop at Vino Cellars at the Lake (15038 Business Hwy. 13, Branson West, 417-739-1985,, and pick out a nice bottle of red wine and some gourmet chocolate for those s’mores you’re planning on roasting later in the evening. Just because they’re messy doesn’t mean they can’t also be just a little bit fancy. Go ahead. Treat yourself!
