Best Nature Watching 

The Bluff house

Point Lookout

If you love the hustle and bustle of a weekend in Branson but want to escape the neon lights at night, The Bluff House is the perfect retreat. Located high above the water of Lake Taneycomo, this rustic lodge has some of the best views of the Ozarks hills and the Branson skyline. The steeple ceiling, massive stone fireplace, walls of windows and cozy leather couches make this the perfect place to unwind in luxury while still being surrounded by the beauty of the outdoors. And with several bedrooms (the master suite even has a wood-burning fireplace), you can bring the whole family and really live up the Branson experience. But at the end of the night, unwind on the back porch in the hot tub that’s built into the side of the bluff or fire up the grill and treat yourself to a late-night snack.  

A Breathtaking View

Located 200 feet above Lake Taneycomo, no stay at The Bluff House would be complete without some time spent soaking in the killer views. To get the absolute best viewpoint, head up the curved staircase to the loft suite. There you’ll find a secret door that leads to the crow’s nest for amazing rooftop views.
