 Best Place to Feel Right at Home

Branson House Bed and Breakfast is located in a picturesque home just off of Main Street in downtown Branson.

 Branson House Bed & Breakfast


For those weekend staycations where you want to get out of the house but don’t want to spend hours in the car, head to Branson House Bed & Breakfast (120 N. Fourth Street, Branson). Dayle Coursey and his wife, Carol, make you feel right at home in their cozy B & B. There are five spacious bedrooms that come decked out with king-size beds, but if you’re up for some extra rest and relaxation, book yourself into the honeymoon room. The price per night doesn’t change, but you do get some serious upgrades, including a two-person jetted tub, a wet bar and a wine cooler. Breakfast changes each day thanks to the culinary pros at Infused Catering, so those homemade blueberry muffins you devoured yesterday might just be a tasty memory. Once you’ve poured yourself a large cup of hot coffee, wrap up in a blanket and cuddle up with your loved one on the spacious stone front porch. Since this B & B sits high up on Fourth Street, you get a great view of the nearby Branson Landing and the bluffs off in the distance. You can also warm up by the gas fireplace out on the back terrace.

A team of experts from Petals flower shop decorated the Branson House for the holiday season.

Guests of the Branson House stay in one of five cozy rooms with king-size beds.
