We recently got home from our first ever family vacation to Branson! We had a wonderful time! I visited Branson just for a day at Silver Dollar City when I was in college and have always wanted to return to take my family. Last month that dream came true!
Something has to go wrong every vacation and on this trip it began about an hour and a half into the day of driving. Jason started seeing spots. It was the worst possible time for him to get a migraine! It was up to me to drive all the way there while my poor husband writhed in pain. Most of you know that driving isn’t my favorite thing to do in the world, but it was a nice easy drive up until the last two hours of driving round and round the Ozark hills on two lane highways. I’m sure many a driver behind me told me to go back to Texas, but I was determined to get to Branson safe if slow!
We drove right to Stormy Point Village where we had rented a two bedroom cottage for a week. It was our very own home away from home!
A place like this must have cost a fortune right? Wrong! We rented it for a week for $294 including tax! I would have never found it without my friend Katie who I introduced you to earlier this year. She recommended Stormy Point Village to me because she had stayed there before and loved it as well.
We rented the room through Trading Places. Katie gave me the tip that if you watch the Hot Deals page about a week or two before desired date the condos that are still not rented will drop in price to around $294! For us it was worth the wait, but even weeks before our trip there were 2, 3 and 4 bedroom condos at Stormy Point going for around $600! That is still a great deal if you don’t want to risk waiting until the last minute.
Besides staying in a beautiful, sparkling cottage the resort has lots to offer. We has so much scheduled during our stay that we didn’t take advantage of the pools, weight room, and activities onsite, but they looked very nice.
