About Us


Welcome to Branson


I am an energetic, outgoing, creative soul that loves meeting new people and learning from others. I have a degree in Fashion Merchandising that has played a huge part in my interior design talent and an eye for detail that is placed into each of our properties.

My hobbies include about anything outdoors in the beautiful Ozark Mountain area we live in. I enjoy taking care of my vast amount of flower gardens, feeding my wild birds, biking, walking, working out and spending time with my family and pup dogs. 

Growing up with a brilliant Father involved in various business and real estate ventures gave me the youngest, and only girl, the edge and interest I needed to succeed in this ever popular hospitality industry. My family has prospered offering long term living options for renters and families through homes, condos, and apartment complex for many years. 

My attention to detail, creative mind, interior decor – design interest, and love for meeting people has led me into a fun and exciting type of real estate investment – Nightly / Weekly Vacation Rentals.  It is ever changing and I love everything about the industry and the families we entertain. 

I decided to take a newer twist on investments and began offering beautiful nightly / weekly cabins, lodges, condos for vacationing families visiting the ever  popular Branson lakes area I call HOME.

I began slowly with one property in 2010 and have proudly grown to seven uniquely appointed homes this year. I love the interaction between the families we rent to and love providing them a beautiful, “home away from home” experience to create their unique vacation memories.

Kaci “Cavachon”

CSO:  Chief Sleeping Officer

Kaci’s job is to lay under Jacqui’s desk, sleeping and ensuring all daily tasks are completed and all guests are replied to in a timely fashion. She does this by getting up and stretching as a gentle hint that Jacqui has sat too long and not getting her enough treats or going outside.

Ralphie “Pomapoo”

CBO: Chief Barking / Security Officer

Ralphie’s main job title is to protect EVERYTHING with his loud bark. He guards the office from all the UPS and delivery drivers.

“We really enjoyed our stay at the Lazy Bear Lodge. Jacqui has beautifully decorated this cabin with attention given to every last detail. The location was perfect.
Sitting on the back patio made you feel as if you were in isolated in the woods, but in reality you were just minutes away from the strip.
The lodge was spotless and furnishings were so comfortable…especially the beds. Thanks again Jacqui for letting us stay at your home. We’ll be back!”
