It’s the simple things in life that brings us the most pleasure: our dogs sitting at our feet as we read our favorite books, sleeping in late on a Saturday without the kids waking us up, and learning that Valentine’s Day in 2020 falls on a Friday! Letting the romance carry on into the weekend is our plan, and if you’re thinking along the same lines, a romantic escape to Branson and participation in these romantic Branson activities may be the best way to show the love of your life how important to you he or she is! This guide will help ensure that your long weekend for Valentine’s 2020 in Branson is as magical as the early days of your relationship!


Breakfast in Bed Then on to Branson Activities

Your queen works hard every day and our soft beds make it easy to catch a few extra winks on a lazy Valentine’s Day—even easier if you bring her the morning meal to be enjoyed right where she sleeps! If scrambling eggs, popping bread in the toaster, and brewing a pot of coffee is above your skill level, sneak out to the nearest donut shop to pick up some sweet treats; Hurts Donut is one of our favorites. Located in the Dick Clark’s American Bandstand Theater, it may be a little further from your Valentine’s Day escape, so feel free to try Dunkin Donuts or Krispy Kreme if they are closer!


Hike Through the Woods

As you walk through the woods with the chilly winter air kissing your cheeks, the peaceful beauty of the season will fill your soul as your soulmate’s love fills your heart. Hear the crunch of snow beneath your feet as you take a stick and draw your initials with a heart around them in the blanket of white and feel the serenity and peace that accompanies a hike in the woods with the one you love more than life itself. Cards, flowers, and gifts are temporary; Valentine’s memories last forever!


Still the Fastest Way to His Heart

You may already have him snagged, but it doesn’t hurt to treat your Valentine to a hearty meal on this romantic day, and for carnivores there are plenty of options in Branson. Offering everything from elegant meals at Level 2 Steakhouse to casual dining at Danna’s BBQ and Burger Shop, your Valentine’s dinner in Branson promises to be one that will be remembered forever.


The Romance Continues

Knowing that however you spend your days enjoying Branson activities you’ll be coming home to the romantic charm of our Sunset Nightly Rentals holiday escapes will ensure the romance continues long after the sun has set. Reserve yours today!

We get excited with the changing of every season here in Branson, as each one offers something uniquely wonderful in ambience, landscape, and of course, in the events that are offered! In the spring, we welcome the promise of new life with flowers in bud. In summer, the lazy days of our childhood are remembered fondly. And in fall and winter? From the vibrantly beautiful landscape of changing trees to the blanket of snow that softens a cold winter’s day, each day of each season brings us something new to be thankful for, and these upcoming seasonal events in Branson are just the icing on the cake!


The Annual Turkey Trot, Thanksgiving Morning, Branson Landing

The good thing about this day of thanks is knowing that our tables will be groaning under the weight of all the delicious goodies we always prepare! This holiday of indulgence can add a few extra pounds, though, all of which tend to land in the spots we want them least! The Annual Turkey Trot, however, is the perfect way to eat a little more without adding to those numbers on the scale. Participate in this fun 5K walk/run (all on flat ground!) with prizes and tee shirts!


Breakfast with Santa, December 21, Chateau on the Lake

Putting the fun in fundraiser, this special event will be the highlight of your child’s life as they watch Santa arrive on a bright red fire engine, have a one-on-one meeting with the jolly old elf, and enjoy a delicious breakfast buffet. Also offering clowns, kids’ Christmas activities, and holiday movies, Christmas morning may pale in comparison!


New Year’s Eve Celebration at Silver Dollar City

In case you were wondering how to top a glitzy New Year’s Eve party, we have the answer right here: celebrate 2020 in Branson at Silver Dollar City! Featuring dance parties and radio shows, music and magic, as well as the chance to meander through the park filled with 6.5 million holiday lights, your new year promises to outshine all the years of the past!


Wedding Expos, Hot Winter Fun Big Show, and More Events in Branson

The Branson Wedding Expo held on January 19th at Branson Landing, the 26th Annual Hot Winter Fun Big Show held on February 5th at Dick Clark’s American Bandstand Theater, and so many more events in Branson promise to make this season and the next more fun than you thought was possible—but only if you reserve your Sunset Nightly Rentals seasonal escape today!

We don’t want to scare you, but have you taken a look at the calendar lately? Somewhere between that last sip of New Year’s champagne and your next blink, the days flew by, the calendar pages were ripped off, and before we knew it, it became time to start making Thanksgiving plans! As thoughts of chores, shopping, and memories of previous holiday celebrations with loud extended family members come to mind, we’d like to take this time and offer up an invitation to spend your 2019 Thanksgiving in one of our Branson rental properties that we manage and avoid all the hassle! This guide to your getaway to Branson for Thanksgiving should help convince you of the merits of accepting our invite!


Offering Peace and Serenity

Upon waking on Thanksgiving morning, the first thing that will strike you is the absolute peace that envelopes your bedroom. As the sun peeks in the windows, the sights, sounds, and aromas of fall will bring a smile to your face. Pour yourself a cup of coffee and throw on a jacket to enjoy it on the deck looking out over the lake; renting one of our lakefront cabins ensures this spot will be the one you are most thankful for during your getaway! As each of your family members slowly comes awake and meanders out onto the deck, gasping at the beauty of a not so ordinary Branson morning, you’ll know that no matter what the next few hours bring, these special moments will be the ones you remember most fondly!


Feasting with the Family

The turkey feast is one of our favorite parts of this holiday of thankfulness, and when you stay in one of our Thanksgiving escapes, your feast options are plentiful. Choose to create the meal from scratch in our fully equipped kitchens, pausing every so often to enjoy the views from the generously sized windows, or pick up a ready cooked meal from one of our local grocery stores. If you’re really not in the mood to cook or clean up afterward, head out to the streets of Branson for a special Thanksgiving meal offered by many of the restaurants in town. The Thanksgiving Brunch offered by the Keeter Center is one of our favorites, but Branson’s Center Stage and Buckingham’s Restaurant are close behind.


Thankful for Black Friday Bargains

Of course, it wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without Black Friday bargains, and there are more than a couple of ways to enjoy the tradition while in Branson! Starting at midnight, Tanger Outlets offers additional deals with their Moonlight Madness & After Thanksgiving Sales, but if you’re willing to wait till the next morning, Branson’s Landing Black Friday Blowout begins at 7:00 AM on Friday! Your Sunset Nightly Rentals turkey day escape comes with a washer and dryer, so go ahead and pack light; you’re going to need the room for all the great deals and bargains you obtain during your Black Friday expeditions!


It Doesn’t Get Any Better Than Branson for Thanksgiving

Quiet moments with family, a delicious feast that someone else prepared, all the shopping you can handle—the only thing missing from this vacation is you! The cherry on the top of this perfect experience will be a stay in one of our Sunset Nightly Rentals lakefront cabins; reserve yours today!

If you close your eyes tight and concentrate really hard, you can almost taste the pumpkin spice latte warming your hands as your new wine-colored sweater warms the rest of your body. Fall isn’t that far away, but before you start to unpack your fall and winter clothing from storage, there’s still one last bit of summer fun in which to partake. Labor Day, a day designated to honor the hard work of Americans over the ages, is also the day we set aside to bid farewell to the hottest season of the year, and when you plan a vacation to Branson during this long weekend, following this guide will ensure your Branson Labor Day Weekend is one you’ll never forget!


The Southern Gospel Picnic, Silver Dollar City

In our eyes there’s no better way to soak up that last bit of summer than with a good old-fashioned picnic, and apparently Silver Dollar City agrees with us! Starting August 22nd and ending on Labor Day, September 2nd, guests can expect to listen to the sounds of more than 70 of America’s finest gospel bands while enjoying an all-you-can-eat buffet sponsored by the House of Chicken & Fixins’. And because the only fee attached is the one to get into Silver Dollar City, this activity will fit into most vacation budgets!


Summer Sales to Make You Smile

The tears of happiness sliding down your face are to be expected when you check out the sales offered at Tanger Outlets in Branson; they could also be from the taste of the foods you try during the food truck festival taking place the same weekend. In any case, spending a few hours (and a few dollars!) at the Tanger Outlets End of Summer Block Party & Food Truck Festival is guaranteed to be a memorable experience!


Barbecue at the Homestead

Unlike a standard hotel room, guests want to spend as much time as possible exploring the comforts of their Sunset Nightly Rentals Labor Day escapes; holding a family barbecue is the perfect way to do so! Grill your favorite meats, take a dip in the lake, and spend the entire day doing the OPPOSITE of what you would do if you were still at home! Reserve your vacation rental today and discover the Sunset Nightly Rentals difference. Our attention to detail makes your stay one filled with comfort and luxury!


Although we generally look at Memorial Day as the starting pistol shot for summer, the deeper meaning behind this patriotic holiday should never be forgotten. Dedicated to those brave souls who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country and our freedom, this special holiday is one way we try not to forget, and when in Branson, you’ll discover that we honor the solemnity of what Memorial Day stands for while offering a lighter celebration as well. Follow this guide to our Branson Memorial Day events and celebrate a holiday that is fun and meaningful at the same time. And because you are staying in one of our Sunset Nightly Rentals, this holiday gets better every minute with plenty of Branson events!


Branson Mill Craft Village Memorial Day Fun

The entire weekend is dedicated to fun and crafting when you visit the Branson Mill Craft Village! Located at 330 Gretna Road and offering how-to demonstrations, special sales, free stuff, and raffle prizes, it’s the perfect way to fill a few hours of your long weekend!


Silver Dollar City Bluegrass & BBQ Festival

Whew, that was a close one! This all-American, nearly month-long festival ends on Memorial Day, and you nearly missed it! Featuring live bluegrass music and a very delicious all you can eat rib feast, it would be unpatriotic to skip this fantastic Silver Dollar City event!


White Water Branson, 3505 West, MO-76

As the temperatures rise, so do the water activities, and Memorial Day Weekend is the opening weekend for our favorite water park, White Water Branson! Show off your inner daredevil with a slide down the KaPau Plummet or take it easy as you drift aimlessly along the Aloha River. And even though the calendar may say you have another month until the solstice arrives, we ALL know summer is here!


Memorial Day Service, May 27th, Ozarks Memorial Park Cemetery, 1638 E. Highway 76

Paying homage to the soldiers who have sacrificed it all for our freedom, this special ceremony sponsored by The Branson Vietnam Veterans of America – Chapter 913 will be a moving tribute. Guaranteed not to leave a dry eye in the house, the emotions behind the speeches will be clear as our American heroes are honored in a bucolic setting that adds to solemnity of the occasion. Starting at 11 AM, it only takes a small amount of time to remember those who have passed.


Chateau on the Lake Memorial Day Celebration

Celebrating the way we Americans do best, the Chateau on the Lake Memorial Day Celebration offers barbecue, live music, and a colorful fireworks display that reflects off the waters of Lake Taneycomo! As you sit on the ground feeling full from the barbecue and happily tired from a long weekend of Memorial Day fun, take a moment to remember and offer a silent salute to those long gone.


Red, White, and Blue with Sunset Nightly Rentals

All-American and proud, we at Sunset Nightly Rentals would like to wish you a Happy Memorial Day and our fervent wish that your weekend in one of our holiday escapes is more than you dreamed it could be! Reserve your Memorial Day getaway today!

As we prepare to turn the page to a new month, one day, hopefully, marked in red, stands out above all other days in the month of May: Mother’s Day. Yes, it’s that time again, the time we take to pay homage to the most loyal person in our life, our mom. Offering unwavering support and unconditional love, our mothers have stood behind us in the best of times, besides us with an arm wrapped around our shoulders in bad times, and in front of us protecting us from the worst of times, and on this day, we show how much we appreciate everything they have done for us. And while flowers and a card are a sweet tribute, nothing says “You are the queen of our world, mom!” more than planning Branson getaways!


Breakfast in Bed

Just like us normal people, mom’s fall into two categories: morning people and night owls. But all moms tend to be the first awake in the morning and the last to go to bed at night, and all moms will appreciate the opportunity to sleep in late and be served breakfast in bed! You don’t have to build the perfect eggs benedict (although you could in our Sunset Nightly Rentals fully-equipped kitchens!); just be the early riser for a change and run over to Hurts Donuts, 1600 MO-76, for a decadent start to the day dedicated to your mom!


Pampered and Indulged

For all those times mom cleaned up our messes, cuddled with us when we were sick, or cried with us over bad break-ups and lost jobs, a trip to the spa is a perfect start to showing we recognized her sacrifices! Spa Chateau, 415 N State Highway 265, is the first place that comes to mind when we want the best; offering more than the norm when it comes to spa services, this place does it all! From the tip of her toes to the crown of her head, Spa Chateau has a service that will make her feel loved and special. The Moment of Bliss Package is our favorite, but all services are wonderful!


Dinner, a Show, and the Beauty of Table Rock Lake

A nice dinner is a great way to finish off a normal day, but on Mother’s Day, only the Showboat Branson Belle’s Captain’s Club Dinner Cruise will do! Cruising around Table Rock Lake aboard our modern version of a paddleboat while enjoying a New York Strip and a chocolate lovers’ cake is the perfect ending to a perfect Mother’s Day in Branson!


Give Your Mother the Getaway She Deserves

After a day filled with mom-centric activities, it’s time to return to your comfortable vacation property from Sunset Nightly Rentals for deep and restful sleep. Contact us today and we’ll be sure to help you plan the perfect Branson vacation that your mom surely deserves!
