From our General Managers
Dathan Atchison – Welk Resort, Branson, Mo.
While the area is a little quiet during the winter season, it’s been very busy at our resort in Branson. Our teams have been working around the clock to renovate the Hotel and it’s looking great! Portions of the project are just about completed and the guests who’ve stayed with us so far have been thrilled. This total renovation literally includes everything from floor to ceiling. Working with Juli Russell Designs, we’ve implemented a concept that is tasteful and complements the feel of the Ozarks region. Of course the improvements won’t stop at the guest room door – all of our public areas, meeting rooms, lobby and guest registration will also get a facelift, with completion targeted for late April. Our new look is warm, inviting and we’re sure you are going to love it.
During this slower paced time of the year, our guests have loved spending time in our cozy and rustic Lodges at Timber Ridge. Relaxing by the fireplace is a favorite past time on a cool, crisp winter night. Maintenance weeks were completed over the winter months as well, with our team taking advantage of the quiet to fine tune each unit with annual preventative care and upkeep.
March 14th kicks off our theatre season as TV’s most popular game show returns to Branson! The Price is Right Live, Stage Show was a big hit last season, with huge audience participation and all the games we love, from Plinko to the Big Wheel. There are dozens of winners in every show, so “Come on Down” to Win! It’s also not too early to begin making plans to see the legendary entertainer Tony Orlando. Tony will be performing for his 20th and Final Season here in Branson this November. Be sure to catch this inspiring and wonderful performance before it’s gone.
Of course there is always so much to see and do in and around Branson – and this year Silver Dollar City is adding a new $10 million roller coaster, Outlaw Run. Plus the addition of Southwest Airlines to your air travel options means that getting to Branson will be easier than ever.
We’re working hard and preparing for a fantastic season and look forward to welcoming you and providing a wonderful vacation experience!
