Home Description

Welcome to peaceful paradise. The Great Outdoors Cabin is a wonderful, 2-bedroom cabin drenched in woodsy, wildlife décor and high end luxury. When you walk in the door, you will know you are "Home!” Relax in the cozy, great room with a wood burning fireplace and soaring cathedral ceiling. 

A 40-inch flat screen TV with DVD player is in the great room, along with some DVDs and games for you to enjoy. The amazing kitchen is fully equipped for your use with plenty of dishes and appliances, including a coffeepot, toaster, griddle, belgian waffle maker, and blender. Virtually everything you need is provided! A charcoal grill is just outside the front door. The beautiful granite counter-tops encourage gourmet cooking or you can just pop a pizza in the oven. Enjoy your yummy creations on the dining table with room for 4 or listen to the sounds of the Ozarks woods as you dine on the screened in back porch. If you like a totally natural experience, enjoy the patio table for 4 in the front yard. Watch out for the mosquitoes! (Charles will never sit out there--he is mosquito-a-phobic!)

Cable TV, wireless internet, and a landline phone with free long distance are provided. A new front-loading washer and dryer are also available for your convenience.

Continuing the great outdoors theme are the two master suites (one on each side of the great room). They are both well appointed bedrooms, each with full bathrooms . One suite is dedicated to bear friends and the other is a tribute to antlered animals. Both bedrooms have sumptuous, pillowtop mattresses on king sized beds.  Wall-mounted flat screen TVs and DVD players are provided in both bedrooms. The roomy bathrooms are equally luxurious with large whirlpool tubs, double sinks, and separate showers.  Ahhhh! 

Nothing compares to the soothing sounds of the Ozark woods. I grew up falling asleep to those sounds and now it is one of things I love the best about coming to the cabins. The large, screened back porch provides a perfect place to sit and be serenaded by the natural sounds of the woods. Kick back in the comfy, twiggy chairs or enjoy the porch swing and snuggle with your honey. I love the back porch!

Parking is right outside the door and a ramp is in place from the parking area to the front porch.

The Great Outdoors Cabin is in Notch Estates and is 2 doors away from Cabin Dreams, our one bedroom cabin. Notch Estates is a great community where many of the owners live year round. You will pass several large condominium buildings on the way to the cabins. There are always families out playing and people walking dogs or just walking. It is a super friendly place! There are 2 outdoor pools, open from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Both have nice pavilion areas near them. A wonderful playset is near the largest one. Notch also has a private fishing pond for owners and guests. No fishing license is required. It is quite a hike to get there, but worth the trip. Actually, the trip down to the lake is not too bad….it is the trip back UP that will get your heart pumping! It is a nice adventure and a great challenge! Try it out and let us know you did it! There are several other hiking trails around the cabins and the condos. Hiking is a passion my best friend and I acquired when we turned 50. Enjoy the trails!

Silver Dollar City is about a mile away-- you can hear the SDC train whistle!  It is super convenient to go to Silver Dollar City from here because as you leave Notch,  you are coming from the west, so you miss the long line of people coming in from Branson. Then when you leave the park to return to the cabin, you exit to the west and miss the long lines going back toward Branson. It is great!

C’mon over! You’ll be glad you came to the Great Outdoors!



Notch Estates is a wonderfully pleasant little community of condos and cabins that is surrounded by 130 acres of unspoiled natural beauty. Notch Lane is the only street in the community and follows along the top of the ridge, affording magnificent views on both sides. The lane is bordered on both sides by modest condos, some of which are nightly rentals and many are the homes of full-time residents. It is one of the friendliest places you will find! People are always outside enjoying a walk around the complex or visiting with neighbors.

The location of Notch Estates is about 8 miles west of Branson on Hwy 76. It takes about 10 minutes from the cabins to the beginning of the 76 strip. It is about 1 mile past the Indian Point intersection going to Silver Dollar City. You can leave the cabin and be at the parking lot of Silver Dollar City in about 5 minutes. (Since we are west of the Indian Point intersection, we do not have to contend with all the traffic coming out of Branson. Super great deal!!) Several Marinas are within 15 minutes where you can launch your own boat or you can rent a boat for the day. If you do bring your boat, Notch offers a free parking area for our guests. The Tablerock State Park is about 20 minutes away.

As you travel down Notch Lane, you will find a pool on either side of the lane. The first one is a deeper pool, 3-8 feet deep and is surrounded by a large sunbathing deck. The large pavilion is a great place for those large family gatherings. Grills are close by. A great play area is near the pavilion and pool. If you travel on down the street, there is another pool, more shallow, 2-5 feet, with a zero entry side. The views are breathtaking! Shepherd of the Hills tower is just across the holler. A brand new pavilion area is also available beside this pool. The lane forks just before you come to the cabins and in the center is an awesome basketball goal.

The cabins are located to the left of this basketball goal and the mood changes as you veer to the left where Notch Lane becomes Chandler Lane - home of the cabins. The row of cabins in the woods is your destination! Our Great Outdoors Cabin is 53 Chandler Lane and Cabin Dreams is 69 Chandler Lane, the second from the end. The cabins are surrounded by the amazing Ozark woods! The end of the lane is the beginning of one of the nature trails around the complex. You are surrounded by unspoiled grandeur! The cabins at Notch truly offers a secluded feeling in a safe, wooded setting.

Exploring around the cabins is great physical exercise and nothing clears away cluttered minds like a hike in the woods. There are several short trails right around the cabins and the condos so you will never be too far from civilization.

If you are an adventurer - Notch Estates’ best kept secret is a short, 30 minute hike away. Go back up Notch Lane to the designated trail to the Lake. Be prepared—to get there is a fun trip—coming back is a bit more of a challenge!! You will have a new respect for “ HILL”billies after you make the trek back UP that HILL. My Daddy always told us when we were learning to drive, “If you see a sign warning of a HILL in Missouri, it REALLY means HILL!” That warning applies here. Don’t let me scare you away—you can do it! Once you reach the valley, you will know it was worth the trip! A beautiful private lake lies at the bottom and is surrounded with pure, natural, Ozark beauty! Take a seat and relax on the deck and feel your cares vanish away. You can feed the fish or you can catch the fish. (Just return them for the next guests.) Since it is a private lake, as our guests, you are welcome to fish here without a license. The surrounding woods are filled with squirrels, birds, and many other small critters. You very well might see deer or turkey also. It is wonderful place to spend some time away from the business of life and to bask in the creation of an awesome Creator!

Notch Estates is not a flashy resort with all the latest gadgets, but we are proud of its unique, quiet setting . The proximity to the area attractions is great but many guests have confirmed that the best part of their trip to Branson came at the end of a fun day as they returned to quiet, little Notch Estates and one of our special cabins.

Our Great Outdoors Cabin and Cabin Dreams are here at Notch Estates.
