Imagine stepping into a charming cottage straight out of a Hallmark movie – a cozy haven nestled amidst rolling hills or sparkling lakes. Sounds idyllic, right? Well, a storybook cottage vacation can be more than just a pretty picture. Here are 5 ways to truly indulge in the magic of your fairytale getaway:

1. Embrace the Cozy Comfort: Storybook cottages are all about creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. Light a crackling fire in the fireplace or in an outdoor fire pit, and settle in with a good book or a classic board game evening. Indulge in the simple pleasure of sipping hot cocoa, coffee or tea, while the birds chirp outside your window.

2. Become a Local Explorer: Most storybook cottages boast idyllic locations. Lace up your hiking boots and explore the surrounding trails, breathing in the fresh air and the beauty of nature. Pack a picnic basket and find a scenic spot for a delightful outdoor lunch. A few cottages are even located walking distance to historic downtown Hollister!

3. Channel Your Inner Chef: Storybook cottages often come with charming kitchens, perfect for whipping up delicious meals. Visit local farmer’s markets to pick up fresh seasonal produce and prepare a home-cooked feast. Don’t forget to enjoy your meal on the patio or balcony, taking in the stunning views. Don’t feel like cooking?  You can order in or hire a chef! Did you know we have access to some of the BEST private chefs in the Branson area and they can cook for you?

4. Stargaze Under the Open Sky: Away from the city lights, storybook cottages offer the perfect opportunity to marvel at the night sky. Snuggle up by the firepit with a warm beverage and gaze at the sparkling expanse of stars. This is a perfect opportunity to unwind, reconnect with nature, and appreciate the simple beauty around you.

5. Unplug and Reconnect: In our fast-paced world, storybook cottages offer a welcome respite from technology. Set aside your phone and embrace the opportunity to truly be present in the moment. Reconnect with your loved ones, have meaningful conversations, and simply enjoy the peace and quiet of your surroundings. Yes, we have Wifi, but you might not want to use it and enjoy truly relaxing!

Bonus Tip: Embrace the local charm! Visit historic towns nearby, explore historical sites, or browse through unique shops. Soak in the local culture and create lasting memories of your storybook escape. Branson and Hollister are right in your backyard!

A storybook cottage vacation is more than just a stay; it’s an experience. It’s a chance to slow down, reconnect with yourself and loved ones, and appreciate the simple joys in life. So, ditch the ordinary and step into your own fairytale getaway – a place where memories are made and the magic of the moment lingers long after you return home.
