Events and Seminars

Posted by crosstimberscabins on December 31, 2013 at 9:15 AM Comments comments (5)

This year we are adding a few special events to our calendar at Cross Timbers Cabins. The first one is a Real Estate Investing seminar to be held on February 21-23. Many have expressed an interest in this subject when they learn that Cross Timbers is just one of many real estate related investments we own. We have decided to go ahead and prepare a course of study that would help a beginner understand the basics (and some advanced) techniques and skills.

You can find additional details at this link:

PLUS, we are discounting the cabin rates by 50% for those who are registered for the seminar.

Hi everyone, This summer we've had quite a number of guests who have been here specifically to visit Branson and local attractions. Finding something to do in Branson is easy. Finding all of the things to do that are Free or cost very little is a bit more of a challenge. Many of our guests have set aside their play money for one or two big attractions and have tried to fill in the rest of their visit with lower cost alternatives.

We have decided to begin scouting out the area, (probably up to 40 miles from here) for low cost attractions and entertainment. In the same spirit as our Diners, Drive Ins and Dives restaurant reviews. We will categorize them as: Free, Up to $5 and Over $5. (You can find plenty of things to do in the $20+ range all over Branson and the surrounding area, so we will not cover those attractions. Just the low cost ones.

Trying to help you Stttrreeeeetttttccchhhhh that vacation dollar as best we can!

Summertime Summertime

I'm writing this in mid July and summertime has definitely set in. We have been full to the top with guests enjoying Branson activities, the peace and quiet of Rockaway Beach, fishing from the dock and jumping in the pool to cool off. Even Shelley and I are frequent visitors to the pool.

We are looking forward to the outdoor movie down by the lake next weekend and there are some great events scheduled for August through October.

Make sure to find time in your summertime schedule to visit Cross Timbers Cabins or our sister resort, The Fisherman's Hide Out!

The 2013 Season

Posted by crosstimberscabins on July 11, 2013 at 6:00 AM Comments comments (1)

As of the writing of this post, the 2013 summer season is about 1/2 over. We have had a good news / bad news summer so far. The good news is that the summer has been a great one for gest reservations and we've been full most of the summer. The bad news is the same thing in that we've had to turn away many reservation requests just because we have been full so much of the time.

To help with this, we've converted 22 of our cabins at the "pool resort" back to nightly rentals (from the monthly rentals they have been for the past decade). This has proven to be a good decision since they have been booked almost non-stop since we made them available.

We are calling them "the fishing cabins" since they are being restored back to the style of the historic fishing cabins that Rockaway Beach was once famous for. They remind me of what this town was like back when sport fishing on the White River was popular.

Fishing is still one of the major attractions for Rockaway Beach and we are excited to see some of these cabins experience a revival of sorts back to their original purpose. Of course, you don't have to be a fisherman to enjoy them. We have them priced very economically so you can just use them as an inexpensive way to visit our area of the Ozarks!

Christmas Time

Posted by crosstimberscabins on November 24, 2012 at 10:40 AM Comments comments (0)

Last year our family enjoyed the cabins for Christmas time. We had some in the Jacuzzi cabin (which wasn't yet finished) some in the big cabin and and some drove in for the day. We had a total of 23 there for Christmas dinner and activities. It was a gtreat time for all. Our Christmas tradition is pretty low key consisting of food, movies, games and practical jokes. We have been able to gather as a complete family, (nobody missing) for a number of years. This year will be different.

We decided to gather as a family for the holidays by booking a six day cruise to Progresso and Cozumel, Mexico. The entire family was once again able to gather for the occasion with nobody missing. It was an incredible time together and the consensus is that it may become our new annual holiday tradition. We'll see. In any case, our holiday gatherings for this year are behind us now and we will all do our own quiet, individual celebrations.

Since our family will not be occupying the cabins this year for Christmas, they are available to others. If you would like to try a "Cabin Christmas" this year, just call. There are still dates available.
