Awesome! The condo was wonderful!
We took a girls trip during spring break, that included 3 generations. With 5 people in our party, we needed something larger than a hotel. The condo was perfect! We were very surprised with the extra amenities that were provided. We will definitely stay there again! Thanks for the wonderful provisions!!
Enjoyed our stay. It was clean and spacious. Can't wait to go back there in august.
We needed a quick getaway on short notice and this worked out perfectly. Sandy and Gene's condo was the perfect fit. This was our third time in this unit and we will surely return in the future. The location is perfect to us because you're still pretty close to all of the action of the strip but just far enough to be away from all of the traffic.
Staying there again!
More than pleased with condo. Great location, as described by owner.
Perfect Side by Side Rentals
Our recent stay in your two condos...Brookside and Meadow Brook...was a perfect getaway. We enjoyed being able to take in the sights and sounds of Branson during the Veterans Week Celebration and yet close enough to return to the condos a couple times a day for a short rest or a eat-in meal. Gene and Sandy made it very easy and convenient to complete the rental procedure and the descriptions of both condos were very accurate. Also, when we accidentally left a medical device in one of the condos, Sandy was kind enough to get in touch with the housekeeper and she mailed it to us. We would recommend these properties to anyone looking for a place to stay in Branson
Shirley & Bob
Great place to stay!
We enjoyed our stay at the Meadow Brook-Resort. We came to see the fall foilage and we were not dissapointed. We met my sister & brother in law from Indiana there. It was about half wy for both. The condo was clean, well stocked & Sandy was a jewel to visit with. The informational packet that she sent tells you some good things to know like easy directions & where to purchase 2 for 1 tickets, etc. Thank you Gene & Sandy for sharing your condo & making our stay so enjoyable! Attached a pic from train ride, but the colors were so much prettier than this.
A Great Get-a-way
This is a very nice condo; clean, well stocked and extremely comfortable and spacious. The screened in patio and view is the icing on the cake. Gene and Sandy have an efficient and well maintained system for rental and they offer their condos at very reasonable cost. The kitchen is well stocked, and you have all conveniences of home, if you choose to eat in. Information is provided on attractions, shopping and eating out. If this condo is not available, try one of the other condos owned by the Kalvelages. The same quality and rental experience. Thanks.
Very clean and comfortable!!
We have stayed at this condo two times and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves both times! It is very clean and taken care of. We love visiting Branson and it's attractions, and the comfort and amenities of this particular condo just add to the overall experience. I believe this condo would accommodate families with small children, teens, as well as singles/couples, young or old. There are board games and movies appropriate for all age groups. My favorite things about this condo are the screened in back porch overlooking the brook and the Jacuzzi tub and walk in showers.
All the comfort of home!!
We really enjoyed this condo! We have stayed at other condos in Branson over the last several years, but this one is by far the best. The furniture is so comfortable and that meant a lot to our husbands because they usually hang out there while we shop. It was also super clean which is always important. Lord willing, we will be back again.
Very nice and clean
The condo was just as described, neat as a pin and very well decorated. We both had a fabulous time and the weather was also fantastic! The location of the condo was just far enough from the strip but close enough to get where we needs in no time.
Kansas City, MO
We loved it and would recommend staying here every time!
This is the 2nd time our family stayed at this property. All we have to say is it was fabulous just like the last time it was a few years ago. The place is clean and comes equipped with just about everything you need, which is wonderful to help minimize packing. Plus, you have more opportunities to "relax" and save money by having more accommodations than you would anywhere else is a hotel in Branson. Gene and Sandy prepare you very well before the trip what their expectations are to rent their condo and come through 100% on their end with a great stay. Not to mention the entertainment/attractions information they provide: priceless! My husband and I love this place and plan to stay there again when we return to Branson and tell all of our friends and family about it as well. Highly recommend it!
St Peters, MO
Excellent in everyway!
Great condo. Very clean and well stocked. Peaceful screened in deck for relaxing. Great location off the busy strip, but close enough for easy access. We definitely hope to return.
We had a wonderful time in your condo. Perfect amount of space for us and being able to rent the other condo made it easy for our families to hang out with each other. Very clean and had all of the supplies that we needed. My daughter loved the toys that she could play with. You simply thought of everything. Thanks again. Leslie
Feels just like home
Excellent place to stay. Our three kids stated when they first walked in this is just like a house.
Thank you for the use of your lovely condo. My family and I really enjoyed our stay. It was close to area attractions but far enough away to have some peace and quiet if thats what you desire. Every thing you could think you might need to make your stay comfortable is provided in the home.
Beautiful place to rent!!!
We absolutely loved our stay in this condo! It is very modern and very well taken care of. We found the amenities to be more than any other condo we've rented in the past. The grounds are very well kept and the pool and brook are literally right outside the door. This truly is a "home away from home". Sandy is wonderful and so easy to work with. We were provided with information and helpful tips on everything we would need to know about Branson before our trip. I've never seen anyone so organized and thorough! A job well done. We will definately rent from the Kalvelages again when returning to the Branson area!!!
This condo was a great place to stay with our two teenage children. Lots of room for everyone. Loved having our breakfast on the screened in porch together every morning. It was convenient to everything! We would love to stay again!

Relaxing and welcoming condo
We recently stayed at the Brookside Walk In, owned by Gene and Sandy Kalvelage. We found this condo to be extremely clean, relaxing and very welcoming. With having young children, we appreciated all the 'extras' the Kalvelage's included, such as games, movies, toys, etc. The screened in balcony over looked the pool and was a wonderful place to read and unwind. The rest of the 'community' was very quiet and respectful. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider staying there again.
Roomy and spacious condo that is immaculate and provided great l
We attended Spotlight dance Nationals at Welk Resort. Had 3 young preteen girls to get ready daily for classes and competition. Took only minutes to get to Pointe Royale for classes and Welk for the competition. Having a roomy and clean place to surround us was terrific. The screened in porch was awesome in the morning to have a cup of coffee and relax. Great for watching teen girls at the pool without being right there by them. Beds were very comfortable! Lots of closet space to get things out of the way. Sandy took extra time and attention to find me answers for special questions I had. Can't wait to return next year!!!
Fairview Hts, IL
Furnishings were very nice & clean. Many homey touchs. Windows on 3 sides of unit= lots of natural light. Very quiet. Screened-in, roomy porch w/ fan was nice. Would stay again.
Loved it !
Will be back !!!
Thank you so much for the use of your condo.
All the comforts of home, we needed nothing. Sandy gave so much helpful information to plan our trip.
The location is great. Just far enough from the hustle, bustle of the strip, but a short drive to anything you want to see and do. Enjoyed the screened porch , sat out there to unwind and plan the next day's adventures, so peaceful. I would recommend Gene and Sandy's place to anyone.
The price was great. We could not have stayed at a hotel and have gotten the privacy and comfort we treasure and enjoy.
Will certainly be at the top of the list of places to consider on our next trip to Branson
Spring break reunion
Fort Walton Beach FL and Kalona IA
Relaxing and comfortable
Stayed the week of 16-23 March 2013 for spring break with my daughter, the condo was very comfortable and clean. We both like different softness in beds so each loved the one we chose. Was very convenient to most places, especially using the short cuts. Mo76 was very slow moving when we did have to use it. We had unexpected snow, which gave us a little appreciated down time. It was nice to have a starter supply of napkins, salt/pepper, etc., and not have to run out immediately and get it. We were able to save considerable money by eating in the condo for some meals, and it was more relaxing not having to rush. Definitely better than a hotel room.
Beal, Gary and Velma
The condo was above what we were expecting. It was very clean, well supplied, had a very welcoming atmosphere. Felt right at home. Location was ideal. Looking forward to returning real soon.

St John, Indiana
Great accommodations and location.
Sandy was wonderful to work with and gave us so much information and helpful hints. The location was very close to everything but far enough to stay away from traffic and easy access to colored routes to avoid busy "76". Condo was very comfortable and would fit anyone's needs I am sure. Lots of extra's. Will not hesitate to recommend to anyone else and we will use her again in the future. Thanks for everything Sandy.
Luxury but homey feel.
Wonderful stay. Could not of asked for a better place. Just the right distance from all the traffic on the strip but still close enough. My elderly in-laws really appreciated it being all one level. With 6 of us in our party, we had more than enough room to spread out and find a place to ourselves when needed. My in-laws have already asked when we can go back. Thank you for a great, clean, comfortable "home".
What a great place!
Pictures on the website did not do the condo justice! It's an awesome condo --- so clean and beautifully decorated. Beds are very comfy! Especially enjoyed the screened porch in the early morning and after returning at night from the shows. Unfortunately we kept a busy agenda to enjoy it during the day time hours. Location is perfect. Away from the strip and nice and quiet but yet it only took 10 minutes to get to most of the theaters. I will be sure to recommend your place to friends.
Plenty of room!
We had a wonderful vacation! What more can I say that hasn't been mentioned in the other reviews? Gene and Sandy make it so easy to stay here why stay anywhere else? They have thought of everything -- comfort, accessibility of things to do and see, a book of recommendations, all the comforts of home. A lot of time and effort has been put into this place to make it easy to show up, relax, and enjoy yourself knowing that they took care of everything before you got there! Thank you so much for a wonderful place to stay! Look forward to coming back and staying again!
We loved everything about our stay Gene and Sandy's condo.
The condo is conveniently located for everything we wanted to do, yet away from the busy-ness of the strip. Sandy's information-filled pre-trip emails and the notebook at the condo made it clear how much she cares about guests' having a great experience. She pays a great deal of attention to detail-- including traffic-avoiding driving directions; information on shows, restaurants, activities, and attractions; where to find anything and everything we might need. The condo itself was roomy, bright, comfortable and well outfitted. We especially liked the screened porch for morning coffee and a view of the beautiful grounds. It was also nice that the condo is a walk-in so we were able to move our things in and out without climbing stairs. We will definitely book with Gene and Sandy whenever we return to Branson.
St. George, KS
Great condo for Family
This is a beautiful condo. Very clean and well equipped. We had a wonderful time in Branson. Sandy went above and beyond to provide information about Branson. It was all very, very helpful. We will be back and we will definitely stay here again. Awesome!! No more hotel stays for this family!
Our stay at the condo was great! Sandy was amazing and so much help. The condo was wonderful as well..our home away from home. Very clean and nice...will stay here again without a doubt!
We rented both condos at Meadow Brook Resort. These were by far the most welcoming, well-stocked condos we have rented. The care and thought that Gene and Sandy put into their rentals is obvious and we will definitely rent from them again. There were 9 of us, and all agreed it was fantastic!
Outstanding condo in Branson
We rented this condo and the one next door (also owned by the Kalvelages) for a "mini" family reunion. What a wonderful place! The condos were spotless, well stocked with everything needed, and located in a quiet spot away from Highway 76. The rooms were spacious and well appointed with flat screen TVs in all the bedrooms and the living room. The condos also have screened-in porches with ceiling fans. The complex where the condos are located is very well maintained and has several pools. We spent many hours just relaxing with our family members and reminiscing about "old times." Thanks, Sandy and Gene, for providing us with a great place for a wonderful reunion!
Pam & Warren
Fantastic Place to Call Home On Our Vacation!
The condo was very clean and well kept. None of the furniture was worn or stained. It was close enouph to all the attractions but far enough away to be peaceful and quiet. The screened lanai was fantastic. I sat out there to relax as often as I could even though it was so hot outside. We would stay there again if we have the opportunity to come back to Branson.
Prairie Grove AR
Everything we wanted and more!!!
You never know what to expect when renting a place off the internet. Let me tell you, it was nothing but comfort and relaxation from check-in to checkout. The condo was perfect and waaay exceeded our expectations. Thank you so much and we look forward to renting from you in the future.
Bob and Marlene
The best vacation we have had!
We have never rented a condo before and now I believe for destination trips we will never rent a hotel room again. Gene and Sandy have you so prepared with information before you leave home its like walking into your own home. It was so peaceful and quiet the week we were there at the end of april. It was handy to get to the things we had planned to do. The screened in deck and the sounds of the Brook made it so relaxing in the evening when we were done with a busy day. We love Branson and my only regret is we didn't try this before. Thank you Gene and Sandy!
We have been to Branson many times, but this was our first stay in a Condo. We were so impressed with the experience, I don't think that we will ever stay in a Hotel again! We paid almost exactly what we would have for a Hotel, and essentially had a 2 bedroom/2 bath apartment. The kids loved the pool right outside the screened in porch. We loved the comfortable setting. It is only about 5-10 minutes away from the 76 strip of Branson, so handy to everything. All of Sandy's tips are very helpful. You will see us again!
Rock Falls, IL
This is what our kids said when they walked in the door! From our 1st inquiry, to arrival, we couldn't say enough good about this condo. It was roomy, homey, clean as could be, and in a quiet resort off the beaten path, but close enough to so many restaraunts and activities. The neighbors(other owners) were very friendly, and Sandy's tips were so very helpful. We had a fun filled week, and can't wait to return~ Of course our favorite place was the screened in porch. It was a piece of heaven on earth for sure!
We enjoyed our Branson vacation. The condo was great! We really like the location of the condo. Especially enjoyed the screened in porch and the brook. Gene and Sandy do a great job.
We got back from Branson and staying at this great condo on Saturday, May 26. This is the best condo we have ever stayed in!! Sandy thought of everything. We will definitely be back! Very clean, homey, beautifully decorated, it was the best!!! Well stocked, dishes, silverware, pots and pans, we wanted for nothing!! We all had a wonderful time!! Saw Yakov (Live and Dinner Show), the Texas Tenors, Tony Roi shows, they were all great!! None of us wanted to leave!!
Cottage Grove, MN
Great place to stay in Branson
There are many choices. We chose this one because the owner was very responsive, the price was right, and cleaning was not extra. The recliners are super comfortable and the condo is immaculate. It was main floor, which we needed for physical limitations of one of our members. There are many little touches such as movies and high speed Internet. The bedding, towels, and mattresses are first rate. We wanted to be a few miles away where it would be quieter from the strip.
Best Place to Stay in Branson - Look no further!
We had a wonderful time at this beautiful place. The grounds are beautiful and we enjoyed many walks around the place. The condo itself is very easy access and is in a great location. The furniture and decorating is very nicely done, very clean and relaxing. It felt larger inside than the pictures tell. The outdoor room was a great place to spend time by the brook, so relaxing!! The owners were great, taking care of our every question and every need was met. They made this vacation so easy!! I recommend this to anyone. In our situation, we brought our elderly mom on a vacation and she found it very easy to get around with just a few steps in front. She was able to have her own room and attached bathroom, while my husband, daughter and I had ample room to find our own "space." The Internet connection was great and we appreciated the owners' attention to detail to make the place so very user friendly. We felt very relaxed and at home. Everything was great and we have many fond memories. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Branson after this perfect experience!
Home away from home.
Everything was as expected. Clean, comfortable, and was all that we needed for our stay in Branson.

Branson at its Best
Was very impressed with the rental. Felt just like home as soon as we got there.. beds were comfy and the location was terrfic.. close to everything!
Would very much reccommend this place again and again.
Thanks so much for letting us stay there!
St Louis, MIssouri
Just like home!
Once we first contactd Gene and Sandy, the rest was easy! They have a streamlined process of clear communication and expectations, great photos that are exactly what you get,easy arrival and departure, and convenient payment options as well. Our family of six (mom and dad and four kids 14-22) fit easily and comfortably in this home. Since it was the Christmas season, we brought our premade cookie dough and baked cookies, had hot chocolate, and watched a holiday movie. It was convenient to get to the condo and was within easy traveling distance to College of the Ozarks and Silver Dollar City, which were our big events for this trip. What we liked best about staying in their home, was truly the fact that it felt like home...what we liked least...having to pack up and leave!
Gene & Sandy
Our stay was wonderful!
We definitely enjoyed our stay here. The condo was well-equipped, clean, beds were comfortable. We liked the short drive to see the shows, too.
We would come back again!
Gene and Sandy Frank
For the third time in the unit it just doesn't get any better than this! Everything was great, very clean and always enjoy our stay at this condo. It is close to everywhere in Branson and easy and convenient to get to. Hope to stay again in the near future.

Home away From Home
We loved everything about this condo. It was very clean, had everything we needed and they even had a little welcome snack pack which was a nice surprise. We liked the location which is only about 10 minutes from the strip. Unfortunately it was a little to cold for us to enjoy the screened in deck but hope to come back another time and have the opportunity to sit out on it and enjoy the brook. Beds were very comfortable and we also liked not having the hassle of having to check in. Will definitely recommend this condo to others. Had a very comfortable stay.

My husband and I took his parents for a 5 day visit. We were all very impressed by the accommodations. The condo was very clean and equipped and the space was exceptional. The beds were very comfortable!! We will definitely stay again when we go back to Branson.
They keep the place well supplied with paper products and liquid soap, etc. It is very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay. We would come back again. Thanks.

Every thing she said she would do she did it and more.We loved the closed in deck no flies no bugs .Will be back for sure.

Jefferson City, MO
This was a great condo, easy to find and close to the action. We loved being able to go swimming or to the playground every night after dinner. This was a great deal compared to a traditional hotel room.
Our new home away from home!!!
A big thank you to Sandy and Gene for providing such a comfortable and convenient place to call "home" for our stay in Branson. My husband and I loved sitting on the enclosed balcony having our morning coffee and our teenagers loved the pool. We all enjoyed Sandy's tips and suggestions that were sent before our trip. They helped make our trip so much better. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. We made some special memories and hope to return soon to make more! We highly recommend this vacation option instead of a hotel. Thanks again for helping us have some cherished family time!!
Very Nice Condo
My family and I really enjoyed the condo. The owners go the extra mile to make sure your Branson trip is a positive experience. The owners' advice on where to get tickets for a discount saved us money. Travel advice saved us time and frustration. The condo was clean, well furnished and competitively priced. My expectations were definitely exceeded.

Wonderful accommodations in Branson
Great vacation condo experience. Clean, with obvious work by owners to make every guest confortable. Kitchen was well stocked and even had some snacks available. Bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. Laundry and cleaning supplies were outstanding. Recliners were nice, but seemed well used and mechanism was not always smooth. It would be nice to have some hooks avaiable in bedrooms or bathrooms to hang nightwear, towels, or swim suits. Read more
Response from Gene and Sandy Kalvelage - 08/02/2011
Sorry the recliners mechanism wasn't always smooth. We decided to replace the recliners now because we actually had new ones bought. We tried to coordinate delivery during our May and June vacations so we could take new photos for our ads but neither time worked out. We decided to go ahead and have them delivered at the end of July even though we were not there. Though it's been a while since I've sat in the new recliners, I remember they are very comfy and the rocking mechanism is a glider versus a regular rocker. Of course they recline in too. I’m glad you were happy and hope you can come back. Thank you for your idea about hooks. We tried a bathroom hook earlier. We will take your suggestions into consideration. Thank you for including our condo as part of your vacation.
Clean, comfortable and convenient
My daughter and I stayed in this condo for her national dance competition. The condo was very clean and the location was perfect for visiting places in Branson. Sandy was most helpful in giving information prior to our arrival which made our stay even more enjoyable.
Mt. Washington, KY
We (my wife and I, my parents, and my two children 11 & 9) stayed in this condo the week of memorial day 2011. We found it to be well appointed and maintained. It was very clean. The location was very convenient, just a short drive from the strip in Branson. Great pool that my kids enjoyed just a few feet away. It was the first time visiting Branson for all of us, so we appreciated Sandy's helpful tips. We had absolutely no issues or problems with the condo, but my impression was that if we did, she would have done everything she could to correct it. She is very conscientious. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
Just like Home
We all had such a good time and would love to do it again. We just need more vacation time.
Awesome & wonderful, again
Gene and Sandy - We again enjoyed using your condo! As with the first time, it was clean and enjoyable. Our kids thought the condo was great and really enjoyed sitting on the screened in porch. Grandkids were disappointed that we were too early for the pool; but maybe next time. Thanks for letting us use your condo! Joan Kugler
Vacation with comforts of home
We really enjoyed our stay in this condo! It wa in a great location, it was almost as comfortable as our own home, and actually more relaxing :) It was very clean, we loved the porch area although didn't stay long enough to use it much. We traveled with a toddler and a baby and there were several sleeping options for all. We will definitely stay here when we return to Branson!
Dave and Sonja
Very comfortable and cozy!
We spent 3 days at the condo and enjoyed it very much. It was clean, comfortable, everything we needed was there. We especially enjoyed sitting on the screened in patio and the beautiful scenery there. Very nice!

Impressed in Godfrey, IL
Wonderful, we will return
Everything was just as it is described. We really enjoyed the unit. Our friends were as impressed as we were. I actually talked to the owner over the phone before we went and she is a great lady. Very friendly and honest. Couldn't have asked for more.
Best Place to Stay
We loved your Condo. The deck was so nice to sit out on. It was just so peaceful there but close to the strip. We would love to rent one of your condos again when we go to Branson again.
Best condo we have rented in Branson.
Sandy and Gene have thought of everything to make our staff enjoyable. We have went to Branson many, many times but tried some of the tips for fun and entertainment and we now have new things to do and see each time we come down.
Fort Smith, AR
Much needed get-away
My husband and I brought my parents here. My (80+) father had had surgery four months prior and neither he nor my mother had traveled for many months prior to or following the surgery. When they were able, they would make trips to Branson/Eureka Springs annually. When my husband suggested this outing, I knew we would need to find more than a hotel room for our overnight accomodations.
Searching the internet, this was the first condo I found that this would be perfetct for our immediate needs. In speaking with the owner, any hesitations/reservations/questions were answered sincerely/truthfully and shortly thereafter, I began the booking process.
Although the weather was uncooperative, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owner supplied information regarding attracttions/shows/eateries/etc. that was extremely helpful and was referenced throughout our stay.
I would highly recommend this "home away from home" for you and your group should you be in the Branson area. "/
Clean, Comfortable, and Spacious
We loved the condo! It was spotless and very open and welcoming. Our little twin grandsons loved the screened porch so they could be "outside." The kitchen, living and dining areas, as well as the master bedroom were much larger than other condos we have stayed in before. It really felt very "homey" and accommodating. And we were on a cool, cloudy weekend! We didn't get to take advantage of the pool or hot tub or playground, but hope to next time! You will not be disappointed if you stay at Meadow Brook. And Sandy's tips are invaluable for show and attractions in Branson---and we've gone there occasionally for 30 years!
Motel No More
We wanted to vacation in Branson but couldn't stay in a motel comfortably. So, on a hunch, decided to try out a stay here. We're sold! My son looks forward to having his own room on vacation and we look forward to him having it! We appreciate the privacy of a home while on vacation, rather than having to worry about noisy neighbors. Will continue to vacation this way. Thanks!!!
This condo was everything Gene and Sandy said it was. Great location with all the amenities.
It was a fantastic Condo!
Everything was perfect and we will do our best to return again soon!
Awesome despite the weather
I didnt know what to expect, having never rented a condo before, but I was not dissappointed! Clean, nicely decorated. Just like home. We really enjoyed being able to stay altogether (5 adults and the baby)
Camp Hill, PA
Exceptionally nice condo
We love staying at this condo. It is very clean and well maintained. We like the quietness of the area and love listening to the brook. We would highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for housing.

My wife and I took her 87 and 83 year old parents with us to Branson and the Condo stay was great. With only three steps to go up to get into the condo made it very easy for our elderly parents.
Everything was exactly as expected - condo is lovely, clean, easily accessible and close to attractions (but not too close!) It was a very comfortable stay and we are planning on making this an annual event!!
Anna and Bob
The owners have a very clean and neat condo. They made the stay very enjoyable by providing a lot of information about places to eat, the shows and the directions to get around very easily. We loved the ease of using the keyless entry and the comfort of the recliners and nice bedding. Thanks for a memorable trip.

Great place to stay and vacation!
Wonderful place to stay! We stayed here with our triplet 19 year olds and a 17 year old friend for two nights and wish wish it had been a longer stay so we could have enjoyed both the condo and Branson more. We have traveled to Branson/Silver dollar city for almost 30 years and this was our first stay in a condo. No comparison to camping or staying in a hotel! The privacy of having 2 bedrooms/ bathrooms was very nice, especially as our children have become adults. We enjoyed having a dining room too although we only used it once to eat take-out food together late one night. Recliners were extremely comfortable and one of our boys may have slept there one night instead of the sleeper sofa bed. I didn't hear any complaints about the sleeper sofa bed-but didn't ask.
This is where we want to stay next time we return to the area. This condo was well built, furnished, taken care of, and exceptionally clean. All of these things are important to us. We loved the screened-in balcony. The condo was in "like new condition" although I think it was built in 1992/3. Although we planned to cook breakfasts, we didn't end up cooking at all; but the kitchen was exceptionally clean and appeared to be well furnished for cooking. The kids were looking forward to the hot tub but it closed at 10:00 PM and we were never back in time. Pools were closed since it was mid October. Location was good because you did not have to go through the Branson traffic to get to Silver Dollar City and could easily get to bypass roads to get into Branson. It was a very quiet area. We all loved everything about this condo and hope to return soon. I don't think you could ever run out of things to do in Branson!
The condo was clean with all the extras. It was in a great location, close to restraurants and shows.
St. Louis, MO
Restful and comfortable
The condo was easy to find, close to great restaurants and the shows. It only took us a few minutes to get everywhere, including shopping. It was clean and spacious. I felt like I was in my own home, with most everything provided, such as hairdryers, a fan, extra pillows, covers, a coffee pot, etc. We've stayed in far more expensive places in Branson, but this is the best. We will definitely return. We most enjoyed the screened-in porch overlooking the brook. Very peaceful.
Joan and gang
We had such a great time using two side-by-side condos owned by this family; we were pleasantly surprised when we opened the door and discovered how nice it was. We commented several times about the comfortable recliners. The screened-in porch was wonderful and we used it often while there. We cannot tell you enough how great this was and how much we enjoyed using it!
Randy & Vicky
What a wonderful week in Branson.
The condo in Branson was a great place to stay. It was super clean and very comfortable and peaceful. Listening to the brook from the screened in porch was really relaxing. It was close to evrything we wanted to do and easy to get to. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. The only problem we had was that the week went by to fast.

Nice as advertised
Sandy and Gene, we want to thank you and compliment you on your condo. The information you provided on the website and the reviews in tripadvisor very helpful. We felt right at home and especially enjoyed the screened in porch. The condo was away from the high traffic area but stiil close enough to all the attractions. Well worth the money.
Ellen & Gene
The best condo we have ever rented
Sandy and Gene's condo was very clean and well equipped. We have rented many condos in the past and we would rate this as #1.

A Home away from Home
We had a wonderful time staying at the Brookside while on our recent Branson visit. Everything was so clean and no detail had been forgotten. We enjoyed all the information provided by our hosts even though we had been to Branson many times prior. This was a convenient location but without all the noise and traffic. There just isn't anything negative to be said and that's saying a lot.
Rich and Debbie
Gene and Sandy,
The condo was exactly as you described. The accommodations were outstanding and will for sure return on our next trip to Branson. Everything was in good order and even though hot, we were able to enjoy the screened porch in the morning. Your effort to make the condo feel like home is very much appreciated.
Thanks for making it a great week.
Rich and Debbie
1st Stay in a Condo
Trip was for sis's birthday. We brought mom & my sister-in laws with us. We had a time & enjoyed the facilities. The screened in porch was great. Looking forward to a longer trip next time.
Condo on Meadow Brook Lane
We enjoyed our stay. We liked the location because we had several choices of routes to travel around Branson to avoid all the traffic. It was nice not having to climb stairs with our luggage. The kids enjoyed the recliners and there were enough TVs for everyone to watch what they liked. It was great to have a kitchen and washer/dryer.
This is our fourth time staying here, our kids think it's "our other house!" Best value we've found anywhere, Branson or otherwise.
Larry & Aneda Glasscock
The condo was very clean, comfortable, and well furnished.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Brookside Walk-in. It was very comfortable and like being at home. Most of the essentials are provided. It was very clean and in a great location, out of the crowd, but not too far from anything. Behind the condo sits the pool and a tranquil view of a brook in beautiful landscaping. The screened porch on the back is great. We enjoyed breakfast and evenings most sitting out on the porch. Hope this condo is available the next time we go to Branson.
Larry & Connie
"Felt Right at Home"
"Thank you so much for the use of your condo during our visit to Branson 7-10 June. From the moment we walked in we felt right at home. The condo was squeaky clean and oh so convenient to everything we needed and for all of the shows. This was our second trip to Branson and we will not go again unless we can rent one of your properties. I'm sure the others are just as "homey". We especially enjoyed sitting on the screened porch listening to the babbling brook and frogs. The information you provided was very helpful. I have only one suggestion that I would make and that would be to replace the TV in the living area with a LCD whenever it quits working. It's no biggy and we would still rent it again tomorrow. Thanks again."
Gene and Sandy...
We loved staying at your condo. It was such a wonderful, peaceful and relaxing expeience. Thank you Sandy for answering all of my questions and for providing us information regarding things to do in Branson. It was our first experience staying in a condo and will not be our last!

Thanks Gene and Sandy, Our Condo Stay was Fantastic (May 25-27, 2010). It met all our needs and our future motel / hotel stays will be a thing of the past. Our 2 friends from Pittsburgh, pa were blown away. They were expecting our trip to Branson to be motel stays but when Lynne found your Condo and showed Jim and Darlene the pictures and the value for our money they were sold. Again, what comfort, 2 minutes to 76, the main drag of Branson and all its entertainment. Another great feature of your Condo was how well stocked it was. We just brought food, drink, clothes and Wa-La we were set to go. Your unit was very clean and the screened-in porch, setting there got our mornings and days started. If we had to kill time between shows we didn't have to go back to a cramped motel room, just headed to your condo for open relaxation. Thanks for all of the Show and area Information. and the "six" show suggestion was the Greatest. We will spread the word about our stay and look forward to staying with you on our future visits to Branson.

We arrived on the 17th of May 2010 to a very clean and comfortably condo. They had all the comforts of home and it seemed very homey. We really enjoyed our stay so much and the fact that it was so close to town but was out of the way of all the traffic. We will definitely return.
We felt totally comfortable in this very clean and well stocked
We loved the location of the condo, all the tips given by the owners. It was wonderful to have two king size beds with our own bathrooms and was all so very clean and well stocked. We really loved the screened in Porch for eating breakfast, playing cards and just visiting and to enjoy the scenery. Lovely brook and pool. Hope to come back on day and stay longer and swim in the pool. Very well furnished. Thanks Sandy and Gene for sharing your condo and being so helpful with all the information we received before arriving. Lila and Paul Bawdon
46th Wedding Anniversary
We enjoyed the condo very much. There wasn't anything that was not provided. We would rather not have the two steps in the sidewalk, but that is only because we have trouble with steps. We would have used the screened porch if the weather was warmer. Anyway, we spent nearly all evenings at the shows. Chairs were very comfortable and three TVs should satisfy anyone.
Couples weekend getaway
We had a great time and Sandy was wonderful to work with. I would highly recommend renting from Gene & Sandy for your Branson vacation.
Nice place to stay.
We liked the condo and enjoyed the creek. (Didn't
like the frogs though) We liked the fact we didn't
have to walk up or down any stairs. We also liked
the screened in patio. Being away from the strip but
close enough to everything was nice. Your helpful
book with things to do, places to see, 2 for 1
tickets, and everything else that was in that book
was a great help.
Comfortable and convenient
Quite, comfortable, easily accessable, away from the hussle and bussle of the strip but easy drive to everything. Owner's tips on driving, restaurants etc. were good.
We were so pleased with this condo. It was very clean and wonderful views from every room. The owners were very easy to deal with and most helpful.The rates are very reasonable.
A wonderful place to stay!
The condo was so clean and inviting! We loved just being able to spend time together without worrying about anything! The kitchen is well stocked if you plan on cooking! The walk-in shower was terrific and our son loved the jacuzzi tub! Having three televisions was a nice touch so that everyone could watch what they wanted! Our son loved the movies about wild animals and said "Could we please stay here again? I love this place!" LOL! Thanks for sharing your home with us! We can't wait to stay again soon!
Fort Scott, KS
This was our first time at Brookside but we were well prepared by Sandy's excellent email directions, tips and explanations. The accommodations were superb and our entire family was very pleased with the comfort, cleanliness, accessability, location and price of the condo. Not complaining, but the only dislike was the bright security light in the parking lot shining in the front bedroom window. Loved the homelike interior. We will be back.
Lois and Norm
Clean, Comfortable, Convenient!
Great experience. Condo was just as described. Very well equipped and comfortable. All the additional "hints" and directions were much appreciated. From initial contact for reservation to receipt of refund of deposit, the entire process was handled promptly and professionally, but with the additional care and thoughtfulness of owners who care about their property as well as the enjoyment of their "guests".

Home away from home.
Our thanks to Sandy and Gene for creating a beautiful and comfortable home. It was so satisfying to find everything working and the kitchen so clean and well supplied. We were there for two nights. We rested well each night. It really was like having a home address in Branson. My husband and I have begun formulating plans for a couple of events next year, and would not think of staying anywhere else.

Stay in Branson
Willl never stay in a motel in Branson again. SO easy to book this condo, Sandy's info was a great resource, liked being able to have own space in the condo away from the others in the party, liked being able to fix light meal when hungry, accomodations were comfortable and homey. Felt liked a welcomed guest. Will definitely try to book condo on our next trip.

A GREAT TIME IN BRANSON
WE HAD A GREAT STAY! IT WAS PERFECT. VERY NICE. IT WAS CONVENIENT TO EVERYTHING. NICE JUST TO SIT BACK AND RELAX. YOU CAN EVEN HAVE PIZZA DELIVERED. THANKS FOR SHARING YOUR HOME WITH US!
Very comfortable condo that was well equipped and met all our ne
We found the condo to be very clean, easily accessible for our parents who are in their mid 80's, and had all the items needed to make this condo our home for four days. The location had good access to Branson, a nice view, and pleasant surroundings in which to relax. Sandy provided a great deal of information via email and in a notebook at the condo about Branson, that helped make our stay enjoyable. We would definitely rent this condo again from Sandy and Gene.
Great First Visit
Our first visit to Branson was made even better by being able to stay in Gene and Sandy's condo! Exceptionally clean,quite,peacefull( loved the babbling brook)and wonderfully conducive to relaxation. Sandy's tips on where to shop, eat, how to get around were much appreciated. We loved the dual recliners in the den also. In a word, just a terrific place to stay in Branson. We hope to return soon. wayne and Martha Hannah
Sandy is wonderful to work with and very helpful in making the Branson trip a great experience. The home is clean and spacious for 6 adults. Beautiful suroundings and easy to get to Branson attractions. Very comfortable like you were in your own home. If we ever to to Branson again, I would definite make reservation to stay at the Brookside.

Most Pleasant Branson Stay We Have Ever Had!
We have had the pleasure of visiting Branson on several occasions. This time, we decided to look into a vacation home rental rather than motel rooms to save on having to eat in restaurants every day. We were honestly a little bit skeptical about renting someone's home - something we have never done before.
Our concerns were quickly put to rest the moment we walked through the door. I can only describe our first impression as an experience similar to walking into a brand new home for the first time, ready for us to "move in."
It didn't take us long to feel like we were right at home in the comfortable recliners, although most of our time was spent on the screened-in deck overlooking the beautiful courtyard out back. We had many quality family conversations on that deck!
Everything that would make a stay there complete was taken into consideration, as well as a few amenities one would not normally consider, such as movies (just in case you can't find anything on the cable TV to watch), games, magazines, etc. But of course, nothing beats just relaxing on that deck!
Both bedrooms were simply immaculate, complete with comfortable king beds and ceiling fans (a combination you never find in a motel room!). Something that really impressed us was how even the "guest" bedroom had direct access to a bathroom.
The location is far enough away from "the strip" so you don't have to deal with the hustle & bustle of the show traffic, yet is easily accessible. It is located in a quiet neighborhood where everyone is friendly.
If you are considering a trip to Branson soon, let me recommend this: While the area offers a lot of great entertainment and attractions, consider a visit that focuses on enjoying and appreciating the beauty of the Missouri Ozarks. And, in my opinion, there's no better place to do that than at Brookside!
A very spacious, well furnished , and immaculate condo. We've stayed in several places in Branson over the past 15 years, but this is the one we'll return to.
Ellen & Gene
Great condo - very comfortable
We thoroughly enjoyed our first trip to
Branson and spent 8 nights in Sandy and Gene's condo. We were extremely happy with the
accommodations and the location was great. The condo was very clean, quiet and well equipped. Also, we appreciated the many hints from Sandy on places to visit and places to eat. We hope to return to Branson someday and will recommend this
condo to friends and family.
Awesome condo with lots of room!!
We loved coming back to your condo after a day of running around. So spacious and comfortable. Great amenities and resort. Thanks so much.
We had a wonderful time in Branson at the Meadowbrook condo
We love Branson, have been about ten times, the first time was in 1996. It has changed so much. This was the first time we stayed at the Kalvelage's condo. Our son and daughter-in-law and her mother went with us Aug 2-6,2009, their first time to Branson. Everyone loved the condo, it is a beautiful condo, the back roads makes easy access to everything in Branson, and a comfortable place to come home to in the evening. I love the screened porch for coffee and breakfast in the mornings, so quiet. I will recommend this condo to anyone staying in Branson and Sandy makes the renting process so easy. We love the two king beds. We will definitely stay again. Nolen & Arlene Timmons, Skoti & Renee Walters, and Sarah Aden from Livingston, Texas

This was a great place to stay!
The condo has a light and airy feel, with good use of floor space and design. We enjoyed having a "home" to come back to after an activity and not just a room with two beds and a bathroom.
The pool being right behind the condo was also great. We could view the pool from the screened in sunroom, which also had a ceiling fan, light, and furniture. we spent time each day at the pool and the location was very convenient.
I really didn't think I would enjoy having a washer and dryer, but when I thought I could do a few loads there and not have so much to do when I got home, it made it quite a wonderful benefit.
I also enjoyed the full kitchen. It was nice being able to get a cold beverage or a snack out of the pantry. We were able to eat two meals a day at the condo and only one out so that saved on food costs.
We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. We will definitely consider staying here again.
Enjoyed staying at Meadowbrook. Close to all of Branson. Very quiet and enjoyed staying at the condo very much. Plenty of room, sofa sleeper extra comfty. If possible would plan on returning next year. Enjoyed having outdoor pools close by. Loved having an outdoor screened in porch. Stayed with 4 boys and had plenty of room. They wanted to stay the condo and swim vs visiting Branson. Thanks so much for a great vacation rental.
Hudson's Yearly Branson Stay
We had a great time at SDC even though it was very warm. The condo is always great. It has enough room and is spotless! We love having the washer and dryer because we travel with a 1 yr. old and a 4 yr. old. "messes happen" We can also pack lighter.
This is not our first stay at the Kalvelage's condo and will not be our last. We love coming there! Will probably see us next year when we get our schedules together!

The condo was wonderful. I really enjoyed the screened in porch that overlooks the pool. The condo is centrally located to all the shows and activities. I found there is something for everyone to enjoy in Branson, not to mention the beautiful scenery. Thank you for a great vacation
Vacationing in comfort
We were very happy with the condo and returned to it in the evenings like it
was home. Everything was so neat and clean. The quiet after a busy day in
Branson was just wonderful. We were close enough to all the attractions, yet
were not out on the strip where all the noise was and the directions that we
received were easy to follow. Walmart was a 15 minute drive and Silver Dollar
City was a short trip too. All in all, our family LOVED our vacation and we will
be calling Sandy again in the future! Thanks for allowing us to use your
Wonderfull place to stay
It was like having my own home with me on vacation. My mother stayed behind when we went to SDC and she really enjoyed having a nice place to watch TV and nap while we were gone.
Kim & Cameron Alexander
How fantastic it was to be able to come back to a wonderfully peaceful place after participating in all the great things to do in Branson! The condo was exactly like described, but better! The beds were so comfortable, the jaccuzi was great, but the back porch was the best! We played Monopoly at night out on the porch where it was cool and out of the rain! Thanks Sandy and Gene for having such a grand place! Hope to see you soon.......

Comfortable Condo, Serene Screened Porchh
All of our family really enjoyed the very clean condo. It had everything that we look for in a place to stay. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here. The screened in porch was very nice as there was a glider and a very nice place to drink your coffee in the morning and to be able to sit outside without getting bit by mosquitos was a big plus, also the sounds of the brook and frogs at night was very serene. Our kids liked playing with the toys and games supplied by Gene and Sandy. It also was a very quiet place to stay and right near a pool so we didn't have far to walk to get there. The beds were very comfortable as well as the 2 big chairs. This is a very roomy place. I would again highly recommend this condo.
Green Bay WI
Condo was in excellent condition. The property
was located close to most of the activities we
took advantage of. Branson is a great place to
visit and is very family oriented. We are
looking forward to our next trip already.
The condo was extremely clean and comfortable. Reservations were easy and things were ready when promised. Sitting on the screened in porch and listening to the babbling brook was so relaxing and the furniture inside and out was very comfortable. We were close to everything in Branson with a country feel. Though our visit was short it was so enjoyable that if we can ever find the time to come back we would make it a point to stay at this condo.
