I have wonderful memories of the Anderson home. Valley
View Resort. My father, Duane and my sister, Diana and my little brother
Mark all stayed there in 2009. I remember because I bought a new Nitro
so we could all be comfy on the drive from Sioux City. I had driven from
my home on Dry Blue Creek, NM to visit and go for a real vacation with
just us. Carla and family were the most hospitable folks, although it
did help to grow up across the street from the family. luv to you for
making my Dad's vacation!!!!
We love Andersen's Valley View Resort. We had a very relaxing stay. The
cabin was very clean. The bed was comfortable and it had everything we
needed to cook our meals. We had a great view of the lake from our
cabin. They have a private boat dock and ramp. The boat dock also has
wooden swings so you can sit and enjoy the view of the lake. Rich &
Carla are very friendly. Their dog Luke made sure to come and visit us
at our cabin. This is the first time we stayed there and now we have
found our favorite place to stay when visiting Branson and Table Rock
Lake. We may go back again this year and we will definitely go back in
We had a week-long celebration for a family member's 80th
birthday. Our group of 12 adults and 3 children gathered from far-flung
places like Minnesota, Texas, Kansas and Maryland. Each and every one of
us had a wonderful time at Andersen's. We rented two cabins within a
short walking distance of each other, and they were very clean, roomy,
comfortable and furnished with everything we needed (if we were missing
an item, Carla and Rich were very quick to get them for us). We brought
a boat and jetski, so we used the dock slips to park them at night. The
lake access ramp was very convenient and easy to use, as were the docks.
The only downside was the poor wifi connection, which was inconsistent
during our stay. But the environment was wonderful and relaxing. Short
15 -20 minute drive to Branson attractions, which was a plus. Rich and
Carla were super friendly, helpful and did a superb job in serving
customers and keeping the resort beautiful. Luke, the resort pet greeted
us and all of the other guests every single day we were there. We
definitely will come back!
We were so pleased with our time at your Lodge. Your
thoughtfulness to include the soap bars, dish liquid, coffee filters,
towels and things we needed those first few days really made the
difference. Love those front porches.

Great place to stay with excellent hosts! Was looking for
a home away from home, and found it! Close to all the attractions, and
just far enough away from them to be quiet. Couldn't have found a better
place to stay. Thank you Rich and Carla!
When we returned home from our 3 days at Andersen's I had
a twinge of homesickness for the resort. We had such a good time.
Relaxed and enjoyed the pool and the porch very much. Cabin was very
clean and had all the comforts of home. Carla and Rich were very
friendly and accommodating. Their dear dog Luke took very good care of
us and the other guests. We just had a great time and plan on coming
back! When we left Luke was back on duty escorting a group of ladies out
for a walk. Sweet! Thanks again!

Just wanted to thank Rich & Carla Andersen for another
great vacation we had at Valley View Resort. This was the first time we
stayed there in the month of March and it was just as beautiful in March
as it was the other times we stayed there. It is so peaceful there. I
love sitting on their dock and relaxing. Their cabins are always so
clean and they have everything you need to cook a meal or if you want to
go out to eat they are just a short drive into Branson. One nice thing
about visiting this time of year is Branson isn't real crowded. Their
wifi is good and they have a lot of tv stations on their cable. Can't
wait to go back again!!

Andersen's Valley View is our annual
all-in-family-vacation. We drag mom, dad, 2 grown sons, their
significant-other-halfs, usually a friend or two, a ski boat, all the
luggage, coolers, water toys, etc 780 miles each way, every year, just
to marinate ourselves in Table Rock Lake for a week. When we arrive,
Carla and Rich (your hosts at Andersen's) are usually sitting on the
porch knowing we're arriving that day. We pile out of the truck like
clowns out of a VW bug and in unison yell WE'RE HOME! The come down the
steps to greet us and we hug it out knowing for all involved - it's the
best week of the year. It's a great place. We stay in the big condo for
obvious reasons. We hear the cabins are all nice. The grounds are kept
impeccably clean. It's a short walk to the boat dock which is kept up
wonderfully. Fire pit in the center of the grounds that is
community...the way a fire pit should be. We've met guests from all over
the country. Last July, we enjoyed parties with some great folks from
Canada who were in MO to take in Branson. We go for the lake. But if you
are headed for Silver Dollar City, or Branson, this is a short drive
(10mins) and wwwaaayyy better than staying in town. Everything about
Andersen's is more than a place to stay. It's a place to go. That's why
we love it. We had never met Carla and Rich before coming to Andersen's.
The previous resort where we had stayed for years before, converted to
condos and stopped renting cabins. Carla and Rich had recently bought
the resort, and lots of folks recommended them to us. We haven't ever
looked for a new resort since then. By day 2 of our first year at
Andersen's, we felt like we had been coming for years and years.
Hospitality doesn't even begin to describe it. It's a family resort. And
they treat you like family. Oh...and you'll meet Luke...you'll know him
when you see him. Go there! Just know that for 8-9 days over the 4th of
July...the condo won't be available any time in the foreseeable future.
I pray my boys never say - Mom, Dad...we can't go this year. Highly
Jeff S, November 24, 2013, Wisconsin
We Love visiting Anderson's it is friendly, Clean, on the
water, pontoon around the lake, Pool on site, fishing, quite but still
near the shows, shopping and lots to do.
Dick and Gayle, October 17, 2013, Sioux City IA
Wow, Can't believe it took us 8 years to get here. Very
nice cabins, great beds, wonderful view, large playground for kids and
adults, huge covered clean dock, nice pool although it was a little late
in the season for us to try. We had a wonderful time with Rich, Carla,
and Luke. All in all a great place to stay. We hope to get back again
Tim and Carla Rubel, October 4, 2013, Sioux City, Ia
You guys rock!!!
(pun intended) if you've ever seen terrain at Table "ROCK" Lake Already
planning next years trip, staying longer this time.
thank you ,Carla & rich
"J.R." & MIC, September 4, 2013, DES MOINES, IOWA
We were a family of 14 that spent three full days with
Rich and Carla at their resort in celebration of our 50th anniversary.
It was a fantastic 3 days. Most of the time was spent on the lake as we
brought a boat with us. The lake was very close, had good access and was
a short walk from our cabins. The dock was great to swim off of and well
kept to dock our boat. My daughters and I would drink our coffee on the
swings on the dock looking over the beautiful lake. The pool was also
great and the kids had a good time there. It was right by our cabins. We
were close to Branson so we could take advantage of everything there,
but were not in the middle of all the traffic and noise. The cabins (2
of them) were clean and very adequate for our needs. The grandkids said
over and over that it was the best trip ever.
Thanks Rich and Carla.
Liz Webb, July 22, 2013, Fort Collins, Colorado
Just finished unpacking from our 7-13 to 7-20 stay at the
Valley View Resort. The place was again very clean and had everything
that we needed. Rich & Carla were outstanding hosts and came by daily to
see if we needed anything. Also "Luke" came by several times during the
day so we could pet him and feed him our leftovers. Great place,
Thanks Again; Rich, Carla & Luke!!!!!

Our family had a wonderful weeks vacation here. The
cabins are homey & have plenty of space for a large family. We (four in
my family) shared a cabin with my sister & her family of five. The pool
was my favorite place to be. I was able to relax by myself & play with
the kids in it too. The pool is very close to all the cabins. My husband
& kids had a great time fishing from the dock. They also were able to
rent a pontoon here & spent the day on the lake! The resort isn't too
far from all the shops but far enough that you don't have to listen to
any traffic. Rich & Carla were very resourceful & had lots of
information on hand for anything we wanted to do. This was one of the
best family vacations we've had. We were able to have our first large
family vacation ever. My parents gave this vacation to us as a Christmas
gift. In total there were 15 of us that were able to go & we only needed
2 cabins! I would recommend Andersen Valley View Resort to anyone going
Christy Schlumbaum, July 14, 2013
We have just arrived home after spending a wk at your
resort, and no sooner was I in the door I wanted to be back there. So
did the kids. Already making plans for next year! Thank you for an
awesome wk, we loved being out on the lake during the day, tubing,
swimming & fishing. And Kelli loved the fire pits to roast her s'mores
every night.. The cabins are so clean and private, everything a family
could need is right there on ur resort. See ya next summer.. p.s Give
Luke a big hug from us!
The Spencer\'s, July 11, 2013
We go there every year it is a great location clean
cabins, pepole are friendly. Siting on the docks and watching the sunset
and sunrise what a wonderful place to be. From 1 to 5 I would rate them
Millie Beck, May 29, 2013, Keenesburg Co
What a way to spend New Year's Eve! Branson was a lot of
fun, Tablerock Lake was beautiful, and Rich, Carla, & Luke are great
host, hostess and mascot. Thanks for the tours. I will recommend your
resort to all that I know. If you want to get away this is the place to
come. You will have a beautiful view of the lake and you will be well
taken care of. Looking forward to a trip again maybe this time in the
Tim & Darla Baird, January 4, 2013, Anthon, IA
Thanks for the great time, wish it were longer. Already
looking forward to next year. Awesome views of the lake. Very clean
rooms and friendly people.
Andrew, October 20, 2012, Sioux City, IA
We stayed at this resort May 2012 and really enjoyed
our stay. The cabin was very clean and fully stocked with the
necessities. We had a great view of the lake and loved the pool. It was
a very relaxing week. One of the reasons we chose this resort is that
they had boats for rent. Rich and Carla were great hosts also. We had a
problem with the coffee maker leaking and they had a new one up to us
within a few minutes, even though we told them there was no rush. Their
dog, Luke, was a sweetie. We plan to stay there again the next time we
plan a trip to the area.
Roger and Linda Hall, August 4, 2012, St. Peters, MO
We just returned today from our weeks vacation at
Andersons Valley View Resort. We were with approximately 25 other
members of a group. We shared 5 cabins which were the cleanest that you
will find. The owners, Rich & Carla are two of the most caring,
friendly, and nicest people you can find. They went out of their way to
make sure we had everything we needed and visited with us nightly. Of
course "Luke" was on our porch of in the area at all times during our
stay. He really was a highlight of the young children. Our group has
reserved our 5 cabins for next year and believe we have two more
families joining in. To: Rich, Carla and of course Luke, thanks a bunch
from all of us.
P.S. See you July 13th, 2013
Don & Joyce Staley, July 14, 2012, Caseyville, IL
Thank you Rich & Carla for the wonderful vacation! You helped Shawna & I
make some great family memories with the kids this summer! We have a
large family (6 kids aged 1-10) and Andersen's Valley View Resort is
extremely child-friendly. Huge, fun playground, Rich & Carla's love for
children, Great pool & lake swimming off the dock. And the kids couldn't
wait to see Luke (giant yellow Labrador) every morning. Luke loves kids
as much as Rich & Carla!
Thanks again and we hope to visit you all again in the years to come!
Greg & Shawna Simpson, July 14, 2012, Kansas City, MO
Our family stayed at Valley View for a week this summer
and being a veteran of Table Rock vacations, I can report that our stay
here was really great. Family atmosphere is outstanding. Really nice
people and the accommodations were super.
R.M. Peters, July 13, 2012, Edwardsville, IL
Just returned from Valley View two days ago and still wish I was there.
We hadn't been in four years and will not stay gone so long again! Rich,
Carla and Luke, of course, are such great hosts. Their place is so well
maintained and a great location. You only have to stay there once to
consider them like old friends! Can't wait til next year.
Kelley Wilke, July 9, 2012, Collinsville, IL
We had a great time! Everything was really clean and Rich and Carla were
extremely helpful and pleasant. We will be back soon!
Kristy Thompson, June 11, 2012, Olathe, KS
Rich and Carla, thank you for such a great time at
Valley View Resort. Hope to be back soon.
Rick & Patty, June 3, 2012, Sioux City, IA
Valley View was the perfect place for our get together of 30 and 20 of
us were kids ranging from 2-17. Everyone had an absolute blast the
entire time and never left the resort. The cabins and condo was very
clean. We will be back next year. Thanks Rich and Carla for making our
reunion so perfect!!
Jennifer, May 30, 2012, Southeast Kansas
WOW! I can't believe it is only April 25th. We still have 2 more months
until our visit with you, which seems like such a long time. June can't
get her soon enough! We are very much looking forward to our 1 week stay
with you. We are excited about being back to the resort and all of the
fun activities we can do there. We wish you our best and hope that all
is well. See you in June, hope you are ready for some fun.

My family and I spent our vacation in Branson and

excellent hosts and very welcoming we also had a lot of fun out on the
lake. We can't wait to go back.
Randy Roepke, June 19, 2011, El Paso, TX

Thanks to Rich Carla and Luke the big headed lab I had
sososo much fun. Alex Meyer
Alex Meyer, May 22, 2011, St. Louis, MO
We have stayed at Valley View four years and will be
there again this year! Rich & Carla keep the cleanest cabins we know of
on Table Rock and their location is central to any place on the lake.
Their marina and launching ramp are first class. I don't know of a more
comfortable cabin resort, as we feel at home when we are there and have
rented three cabins in some years with our big family with three boats.
We have never had any security issues and everyone just loves when they
can come. Come-on July!
Bruce & Teddi Essig, December 28, 2010, Lee's Summit, MO
We had a great stay. Carla,Rich and Luke are the very
best of hosts. Anything we wanted and more was available...Thank You!!!
Bill & Ginger, October 12, 2010, Athens
We stayed at Andersen's September 15th for 4 nights.
Had a great time, the lake was great and nice and quite this time of
year. Always been to Table Rock in the summer with the kids, could not
believe how quite it was this time of year, the same in Branson. We will
be back next September.
Michael Nielson, September 23, 2010, Treynor, IA
Had a family reunion there in June. Had a wonderful
time playing with the yard games on the resort! Also had a great time on
the pontoon! The Andersen's were awesome hosts, and Luke was so much fun
to play with. Reminded me of my childhood dog. We were extremely pleased
with everything!! We WILL go back next year for sure!
