... large. After lunch we drove down the highway containing most of the tourist attractions but didn’t stop at any. In the historic part of down town Branson we rode the tourist trolley; and then strolled around, going into several stores but buying very little. We did not find any shows that interested us, that were performing today, so we had dinner back at the camper and watched TV.
... tour of the battlefield and surrounding area. Wilson’s Creek played a significant role in the Civil War as it was the first major battle west of the Mississippi River. We enjoyed our short stay here as it was another piece of the amazing yet disturbing puzzle that is the Civil War. Leaving Wilson’s Creek we headed south on US 65 and our next campground in Branson MO.
Driving down the main street to Branson, MO reminded us of 'the strip' in Las Vegas-just with a country music flair. There are many shows here-variety, comedy, gospel music, country music, and magic shows to name a few. Our Lodge is a wonderful respite from the main street-spacious room, beautiful pool and lots of amenities. "Monkey in the middle" and volleyball were ...
... lots of mini golf and various entertainment shows. Thankfully, our campground was on the edge of town and we managed to avoid all the junk! Rain threatened just as we were setting up camp, but, thankfully, it avoided us. Dinner on the grill (beef kabobs), a new Shiner beer for Grant, a glass of wine for Bonnie, and some time reading ended the day about as perfect as possible!

... ribs--good and meaty; chicken--tender with nice smokey flavor; pulled pork--too dry, not enough seasoning; sausage--good; beans and coleslaw just ok; great coated fries.
Rolls are unbelievably good--soft with crisy outside; no wonder they're deep fried.
Very friendly staff.
Came back the next day for the burgers. Asked to have the burger put on one of the rolls, which they have ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsSavannah House Hotel Branson
There are only two Presidential Suites in the Savannah House Hotel. My recommendation is that you try to get one if you arrive with kids. They are affordable in price when you compare other two-bedroom, two bath properties anywhere. Plenty of space (and separation) for you and the kids. Suite has a full kitchen with stove, oven, microwave, pots, pans and full-sized refrigerator (but for some reason no towels???).
Living room contained a leather couch and sofa. There are three TVs in the rooms and plenty of closet space including a large walk-in closet (you will have plenty of rooms for your bags, trust me). There is a washer and dryer in the suite with complimentary clothes soap.
Suite was clean upon arrival and each evening when we returned. The master bath room contained Jacuzzi bath and a walk-in shower.
The best (very best) part of having this room is the view. All other hotel rooms face the parking lot, however the view from the suite living room contain three large floor-to-ceiling windows facing the wonderfully landscaped entrance to the hotel property and the awesome view of the Ozarks in the distance. You can even see the Shepherd of the Hills Inspiration Tower from your room.
My complaints: The bedroom windows face out to the parking lot and the curtains did not have shears. In Suite #200 we were almost eye-level with the parked cars so we pretty much had to keep the curtains shut our entire stay for privacy. Plus they had gaps on the side which let the morning sun in, making the mornings bright (a problem if you wish to sleep in). Also, the shower heads could use an upgrade to match the quality of the room.
The A/C units were also little noisy but this was not that much of concern for us.
