My family enjoyed our visit to "BALDUR". It was right on the lake so we could ski from the cove where the house is located. Inside the house, we could not believe how fully equipped the house was. We have rented a number of homes before, but this house has full china, glasses and silverware for 12 persons can sit at one table! The over-sized, multi-level deck allowed us to sun bath, use the hot tub while BBQing in their smoker (we used Pecan wood.) We had a grandma with us - the house was all on one level! Would recommend to anyone who wants a lake-side vacation!!!
I recently planned a trip for my family and some friends to Table Rock Lake and we decided that we wanted to stay in a home instead of a hotel or condo. I couldn't have been more pleased with this decision. We found BALDUR on vrbo.com and I e-mailed the owner with a few questions (we were traveling with toddlers and teenagers and wanted to make sure the house would accommodate us). I received a prompt response that answered every question to my satisfaction and it seemed like a good fit. Upon arrival, we quickly realized that we made the right choice. From the kitchen, to the living room, to the bedrooms and bathrooms, everything was perfect for our family - for both the children and adults! The kids loved the fully stocked game closet, the big screen TV with Dish (it put our TV at home to shame) and the proximity to the lake. The adults enjoyed a fully stocked kitchen, dining room tables to seat all of us, cocktails (and BBQ - Jim loved the grill!) on the deck and the hot tub. And, everything was so clean! It was perfect!!! We spent most of our time at the house, but did venture to Downtown Branson / The Strip (20 minutes) for shopping, a show and dinner and to Silver Dollar City (about 30 minutes). Both places were convenient and easy to get to. We also rented a pontoon boat one of the days we were there. There are a few marinas near the house that rent boats, waverunners, etc. Thanks for the great time!
This was our first rental of a vacation home, and we are sold on BALDUR! The owners were so helpful and informative. The home is decorated, and stocked as a home, not like a rental or as a house. It is truly a home. There isn't anything you have to bring! The kitchen is fully stocked with any dish or pan you could ever need. We enjoyed cooking out, and all being able to eat around the dinning room table together. The bedrooms are perfect! One has window views of the lake and a door to walk out to the Hot Tub. The whole family room faces the lake and the kids enjoyed the big screen TV. The beds are comfortable. With 3 bathrooms no one ever had to wait to shower or run out of hot water. The master bathroom even has a sauna. Games are stocked in a closet, and there are books to read on the bookshelf. The deck is great, and large. We enjoyed watching our kids swim from the dock nearby and the lake view and the serenity of the lake over a moonlit night. We spent most nights out on the deck with a star filled sky. We even watched a deer at dusk made its way by along with beavers playing. BALDUR is great! We loved it so much we are already renting it again!
