(And you assumed I couldn't pass up the pun to title this 'Eureka!' didn't you?)
Architectural gems can show up in the oddest places – think Fallingwater in rural western Pennsylvania – so it didn’t surprise me that a beautiful wood, stone and glass chapel would show up in a forest in northern Arkansas. Thorncrown Chapel has been on my radar for years, but I never thought ...
... breakfast and the entertainment was good but not much of it. More of an advertisement to come and see their full shows. We spent the afternoon at Branson Landing, shops and restaurants on Lake Taneycomo (Taney County Mo). We took one of those Duck Car/Boat tours which was one of the best I've been on. Our guide was informative and lots of fun. He had everyone on the ...
Another bright and sunny day. We started out this morning to visit the Precious Moments Chapel in Carthage, MO. As you can imagine, this was very high on Tom's bucket list of things to do. It took us about 2 hours to get there, but to me it was well worth the drive. I started collecting Precious Moments figurines many years ago and have quite a collection, although I no longer have them all out on display. As we walked along the path to the Chapel there ...
... on this route, and we went through small towns at 35 mph then long stretches at 65 mph when we didn't see another car for ages. At one point we saw a horse & buggy sign and sure enough we passed an Amish horse and buggy driving along the highway. The road names in this area are short and simple - B, FF, T, V, OO. We saw very few stores of any kind as we drove. The only store that appeared in just about every town we ...
... we headed off to see the statue of Christ of the Ozarks, pretty huge. After that we drove looking for the once famous shoe tree that Rich had thrown his old trainers into back in 1995. We knew it had been hit by lightening but had heard that there were others trees in the area. We drove and ended up crossing the dam wall, spectacular views and still no tree. So we decided to head back to the house when all of a sudden pulled over, thinking ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Tribesman Resort Branson
Our Family & friends loved Tribesman
We visited the Tribesman along with another family this spring - and LOVED IT! Our kids adored the place and we never felt cramped - plenty of room to run and play, swim, hike, etc.
The owners are friendly and it has a homey feel. I saw the negative comments from ONE person and have to disagree - It's not posh, but very comfortable. We rented a 4 bedroom cabin, found the kitchen to be VERY CLEAN, well stocked, and the grounds to be well kept and neat.
In fact, what reminded me to write this review, was that I was on-line booking another weekend at the tribesman.
Our family has had reunions at the Tribesman beginning in 1995 or 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2002 and have one planned in August, 2004 and has loved everything about the Tribesman. We started out staying 5 nights and have enjoyed it so much over time, we were staying 7 nights and in August, are staying 9 nights. We have family come in from Florida, Arizona, Michigan, Arkansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Virginia, Oklahoma and Texas. Our immediate family rents the 4 bedroom unit in the "Osage" area that serves as the general meeting place for everyone.
One of the BEST!!!!
This is one of the best times we ever had. The staff was ever friendly and helpful. The home we stayed in was great and held all 13 of us wonderful. We had a fun time on the lake with the free boat rental. We will stay here for many years to come.
Loved the place
We spent the weekend last November, and loved the place, the staff were all very friendly. And the house we rented was wonderful. We looked forward to going back again. t
Not fancy just comforting
My family has stayed at the Tribesman on several occasions. I am very particular about customer service. I found the staff at The Tribesman very helpful and ready to solve any problems that might arise. My children love the place. The activities that The Tribesman provide for the children are unique and highly entertaining. I believe that this resort has put a lot of thought into making guest stays very satisfying
A Great Place !!!
My family has stayed at the Tribesman Resort a few times. I recommend it to friends and neighbors . Some of my neighbors are also now loyal customers of Tribesman Resort. The Tribesman is'nt brand new or supper fancy. It's just really nice, comfortable, relaxing, or as the kids say, its fun. The cottages are very well kept. (they also have apartment style units) The Tribesman has indoor and outdoor pools , nature trails, boat docks and boat rentals, and even a toy room for toddlers. My kids love the family programs like the kids fishing contest and the free icecream night. If you're looking for a nice place and a great value, this is it. When your there rent one of their pontoon boats and enjoy Table Rock Lake , it's beautiful.
We were appalled to drive down into the entrance of this resort! We were looking forward to staying in a lovely cabin - as advertised on their webpage. When we got there, the cabin was not ready - the young women at the front desk were extremely cold and uncaring, without even looking up to see who they were talking to. It seemed obvious that we were imposing on these two women.
WOW! More than we dreamed possible!
We plan a family vacation every year. It has grown into an extended family vacation, including my brother and sister and their families and also my father. 15 of us in all. It has been difficult in the past to find accomodations w/o having to split all of us up and not have to pay over-inflated rates for large groups. By chance I happened upon the Tribesman website. It looked to include everything we were looking for. And boy did it. Everyone is friendly and helpful. The boats are in great shape and we didn't find anyone not willing to help. Even my children were impressed. From the pool to the great kid's activities, there was plenty to keep them busy. We loved it and know you will too, just give them a call.
Wow!!!! What a great Place!!!
Over the years we have visited Branson often and have stayed at Tribesman Resort 3 times. Each time we stayed in a different area and have never been disappointed. The clean friendly atmosphere you get is not just surface deep, these people care about your stay and it shows. The lake view is wonderful, we've rented a party barge for the day and had a blast. Whether you want to get away from it all or see the sights this is a great place to stay. I highly recommend trying the Tribesman!
