If you were to ask us what our favorite season is, we’d have to stop, think very hard, and then the answer would be clear: EVERY season is our favorite! With that being said, however, winter in Branson is one of the most beautiful times of the year, and if you’re planning a winter getaway somewhere, but you’re not sure where, we hope that Branson will be the spot where your seasonal travels take you! This guide to the wonders of a Branson winter vacation and a stay in one of our Sunset Nightly Rentals properties will help entice you even more.


Toasty and Warm During Your Branson Winter Vacation

It’s true, our winters can be more than a bit chilly, but when you choose one of our Sunset Nightly Rentals winter escapes, you and your entire traveling group will stay toasty and warm. Bake cookies in our fully equipped kitchens, watch classic movies on state-of-the-art televisions in front of a roaring fire, and sleep until long after the sun peeks out from behind the clouds. Our homes are designed to spoil, and the evidence can be found in every room! In our hot tub properties, you can indulge in one of our guilty pleasures, a dip in a hot tub on a cold and snowy day, while other properties come equipped with foosball tables for hours of competitive fun on the snowiest days! When the cold night air beckons, gathering around a firepit in still other of our homes allows guests to stay out longer than originally planned; just scooch a little closer and enjoy the beauty of the flames shooting up into the velvety purple skies!


Bundle Up and Get Out

The chilly weather doesn’t seem so cold when you are all bundled up, so hiking through the hills is not out of the question—the snow makes such a satisfying crunch beneath your feet with each step you take! For those who aren’t really the outdoorsy types, a visit to the Titanic Museum or for the World’s Largest Toy Museum is always a great way to while away the vacation minutes without having to go outside for long. Comfort food and a show at McFarlain’s Restaurant will bring a smile to your face and a warmth to your heart, and anyone who doesn’t giggle out loud when they sit in one of the joke tables that suddenly rises to chin height must have a broken funny bone! It’s an old joke, but still gets us every time!

As if Branson isn’t already nearly perfect, there’s another little-known aspect to it that brings joy to travelers from all over the world: a community of local shops in Branson that are unique to the area! Offering charming tchotchkes, sweet nothings, and a variety of merchandise items you never knew you needed until you saw them on the shelf, these stores will be your new happy places on your dream vacation in Branson!


Dick’s Old Time 5 & 10, 103 Main Street

Yes, much of the merchandise found at Dick’s could probably be found somewhere else, but how often in this day and age do you actually get to visit a five and dime store? Extinct in most places, back in the day these discount stores were the hub of community, offering everything from penny candy to household goods to the latest gossip, and at Dick’s Old Time 5 & 10, not much has changed! Open for over 50 years, the green and black plaid floor tiles lead the way to bargains, treats, and pretty much everything you may have forgotten when packing for your Branson adventure!


Prehistoric Fossils, 101 Veterans Boulevard

Shopping with children can be a bit trying, as they get bored, tired, and even when recently fed, suddenly NEED every piece of candy within sight! A visit to Prehistoric Fossil, however, is guaranteed to be a shopping game changer! Family run—so they understand the special challenges of shopping with children—and offering a stunning selection of gems, minerals, rocks, and of course, fossils, the sight of the painted dinosaurs adorning the building will have your dinosaur loving youngsters crying out with glee. And when you let them purchase a handful of pretty rocks, or even better, a real live fossil, you’ll be shocked at the difference in tone this particular shopping spree will have!


Amish Country Store, 3100 N Gretna Road

Offering another step back into the past, the Amish Country Store may end up being your favorite of all the stores in the area! Working as a small natural grocer, selling foodstuffs and spices that are handmade and all natural, but also selling furnishings and handmade quilts, the horse and buggy statue standing outside let’s you know you have arrived at your destination! Everything in this store is handcrafted with love and enormous amount of skill.


Plenty of Room

If you forget your limits and purchase a tad more than you planned, it’s ok; our Sunset Nightly Rentals vacation escapes have plenty of room to store your treasures until it’s time to head back home! Reserve your beautiful vacation home in Branson with us today!
