Cody's Cabins has been in business in the Branson area for over 15 years. We have 7 different cabins to choose from. From a 1 bedroom to a 5 bedroom we can accommodate your needs!

Wilderness Retreat Lodge is a beautiful true log home nestled in the beautiful Ozark mountains and can provide a wonderful “Home away from Home” for your family! You will never want to stay in a motel again! A wolf family on a boulder welcomes you to our beautifully landscaped front yard. Walk up the huge flagstone steps to the large front porch where 2 cedar rocking chairs are waiting for you to rock your cares away. For the early risers, this is the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee as the sun greets a new day.

As you enter the front door, prepare to be awed by the breathtaking great room! The soaring cathedral ceiling, the wood burning fireplace, the well equipped kitchen including a large dining table, and the comfy living room area all cry out “Welcome home!” The “critters” above the closet love company and they are so glad you are here. A flat screen HDTV along with a DVD/VHS player is ready for you in the living room. Lots of movies and CDs are provided for your enjoyment. Wireless internet and cable TV are provided for you. A bookcase holds a large assortment of books and there are plenty of quiet places to get away by yourself and enjoy them.

I know you can’t wait to explore and it is hard to know where to start. A master suite is on each side of the great room. One has a Fish Room theme and the other is the Moose Room. Both have wonderful, enormous, log, king sized beds. All bedrooms have flat screen HDTVs and DVD/VHS players. All the beds have plush, pillowtop mattresses by Simmons Beautyrest. Both these bedrooms have huge en-suite baths with double sinks, jetted tubs, and a large separate shower.

Each bedroom has a doorway to the huge deck. There is also a doorway to the deck from the great room. On the deck you will find a gas grill, patio table and several chairs. (Remember, I promised quiet places to enjoy a book.) The deck has a restful view of the quiet Ozark woods. Don’t be surprised to see wildlife. We have seen turkeys, deer, and a variety of small critters.

Back inside it is time to go downstairs to continue the exploration. Step into the game room and say “Wow!“ The quote on the wall says “You don’t stop playing because you grow old; you grow old because you stop playing.” This room promotes youth--at all ages!! Fun is what it is all about! Charles dreamed of owning a pool table all his life and here it is! And what a beauty it is! Next you will notice the air hockey table. We never knew how much fun air hockey could be! On the wall is another flat screen TV and DVD/VHS player. Check out the games- some board games and some DVD games. Lots of fun! A futon folds down into a full size bed. Some of our favorite movie posters add to the décor of this room. Maybe your favorite will be there.

But wait--not done yet… Off the game room are two more bedrooms. One is Americana themed (check out pictures of our service oriented family) and has a king sized bed. The other room is just plain fun--it is cowboy themed and has a Queen sized bed AND a set of bunk beds! Both bedrooms have HDTVs, DVD/VHS players and access to the lower patio.

A door leads off the game room to the lower patio also. Here you will find another patio table and a charcoal grill. You will also find one of our favorite spots--a porch swing! Also, in the backyard-- you will find a luxurious- private 6 person hot tub! Super great for sore muscles after a long day at Silver Dollar City!

Off the game room, you will also find a full bath with a tub/shower and across the room is our newest improvement to this cabin- another full bath with a large shower. An ample sized utility room with a super capacity washer and dryer is found on this level as well. Iron and ironing board available. Don’t take home dirty clothes!

Back to the kitchen, we have tried to provide all the basics and some extras. There are lots of dishes, glasses, pots and pans, silverware, utensils, as well as a coffee maker AND a Keurig, a blender, mixer, crockpot, griddle, large roaster, waffle-maker, and toaster. Some spices, sugar and cream are available.

This home is truly an exceptional place to gather and we know your family or group will love it as we do. You’uns come on in and sit a spell. We’re waiting for you at the Wilderness Retreat Cabin!

C’mon over! You’ll be glad you came!!
