Winter Cancellation Policy – Bad Weather? No problem.

Winter beauty at Anchor Inn on the Lake Bed and Breakfast, Branson West, MOWe know that winter weather can be pretty unpredictable and the last thing we want to do is put our guests in an unsafe situation because they are concerned about losing money with a cancellation charge.  So our policy during the winter season is that guests can cancel, without cost, if they are concerned about winter driving conditions.  So if you make a booking and then later the weather is “iffy” just give us a call and we can cancel, postpone, or reschedule at your option and depending upon availability.  That includes refunding of your deposit on our cottages.

Also, if you are already here and you can’t safely leave due to snow or ice, then you can stay and extra day or until you can get home.  (Actually some honeymooners took advantage of this policy and got a free extra day. However, they’ve been the only ones in 10 years.) This policy is in effect each year from December 1 through the first day of Spring, March 20.

So go ahead and make your reservation and we’ll take the cancellation risk!

Le Grand Cirque – Branson

After hearing great reviews from several of our guests, Dee and I decided to go and see Le Grand Cirque at the Kings Castle Theater Monday night.  We enjoyed it greatly and are planning to take our kids and grand kids to see it when they are in town next month.  The show mixes comedy and some very difficult and impressive acts like we’ve never seen before.  The most impressive were the “Wheel of Death” and the motorcycles in a steel globe.  Both are hard to describe, you’ll just have to see the show which we highly recommend for both adults and children.

Best Tribute Show in Branson – The Rankin Brothers

Visitors to Branson just don’t want to miss this show.

The Rankin Brothers continue to wow audiences with a two-hour show packed with top hits from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, gospel, country, rock and roll, and instrumentals.  You name it, they do it, and they do it extremely well—totally live (full live band backup, no recorded background music).  Dee and I got to see them when they first came to Branson several years ago.  We thought they were top notch then and they’ve just kept getting better.

Now in the Yakov Theater they are, in our opinions,  a “must see” show.  If you grew up anywhere between the mid 50’s to 1990 you’ll hear the music you love.

For a sample, see this Promotional video from Rankin Brother’s web site.

See the Fair Family – Great new morning show in Branson

We got a chance to see a preview of an excellent new show coming to Branson beginning April 2014.  They are the Fair Family who are opening a new morning  show at the Hamner’s Variety Theater.  We were entertained by five wonderful voices  and talented musicians performing a wide variety of music.  Jacob, Jonathan, Sarah, Daniel, and Nathaniel include in their show selections from country, gospel, patriotic, a cappella, pop, top 40 and oldies. They  also dance, clog, and are very gifted musicians playing several different instruments.  It’s wonderful to see this young new talent come to Branson and we expect them to do very well.  Give them a try!

Here’s a link to their website for more information.
