Fran Campbelland and team know how important it is to take that occasional break to enjoy the splendor of the Missouri and the Ozarks, especially this time of year. We urge you to consider a few of these fabulous weekend getaways to relax and reset for fall. While you’re taking in the beauty, keep in mind that the best real estate group at the Lake of the Ozarks is always here to help you find that perfect piece of property, you never know when or where you'll find your dream home! Here are a few great getaway options in and around Missouri that will impress you, excite you and intrigue you.
Fall In Love with Hermann
Hermann Missouri has all the charm of small town America. You will enjoy all the aspects with numerous wineries and lodging locations. Settled in 1837, Hermann was chosen for its luscious and green scenery as well as rolling hills and vintage charm. The city is a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of large cities and just far enough from the Lake of the Ozarks to feel like a getaway. Enjoy Octoberfest 2016 each weekend in October or an Arts & Crafts and Antique festival the second weekend of the month. There are several wineries each with their own rich history and allure. Elegant Bed and Breakfasts are the staple of lodging in this historic town. Whether you want to gather a group or take an intimate couples trip, Hermann has all the makings of a great getaway!
The Beauty of Big Cedar Lodge
Fall is the perfect time to visit America’s premier wilderness resort. If you want to embrace the elegance and natural beauty of the Ozark Mountains in contemporary luxury, you will love Big Cedar Lodge, located 10 miles south of Branson, Missouri. The atmosphere is tranquil and the cooler weather leaves no excuse to take advantage of the hiking, biking and walking trails, horseback riding, golf and world class fishing on Table Rock Lake. You may be in the mood for relaxation or non-stop action and Big Cedar Lodge will not disappoint. You’re sure to have a wonderful weekend adventure here!
Just a three hour drive from the Lake of the Ozarks sits a quaint, artistic Victorian Village with a historic chronicle that is sure to captivate. Experience the history in over 100 unique shops and galleries and award winning restaurants; Eureka Springs is a shopper, art lover, or foodie’s paradise. Bed and Breakfasts sit hidden in the Ozark hillsides throughout the town or for the more spirited, the Crescent Hotel, one of America’s most haunted hotels. This fall you can look forward to the 69th Annual Original Ozark Folk Festival as well as Oktoberfest, both downtown, the third weekend in October. We know you will unwind in exceptional Eureka Springs!
Come to Kansas City
Don’t let the thought of terrible traffic turn you off! Kansas City autumns are a special time and the trees are turning beautiful burnt oranges, toasty reds and golden yellows. From shopping on the Country Club Plaza to touring the Kansas City Renaissance Festival (open through October 16, 2016), there is certainly something for everyone, and the cool breeze is a bonus! Families, couples or girls groups will love the many pumpkin patches, apple orchards and corn mazes. The atmosphere is fabulous and no matter the week, the city is sure to be bustling with some of the city’s biggest events- a great getaway!
