Trip to Branson November 29, 2009

We recently went on a trip to Branson and stayed at Chateau on the Lake.  It was beautiful.  We took Sophie and received two offers buy her!


I love foggy mornings.



Our room was upgraded to a King Suite with a lake view which is $100/night more than we actually paid.


Here is the hotel’s marina which does not seem very busy on a cold fall morning.


There are quaint spots all over the hotel grounds.
