New housing accommodations

Hello Branson Feast attendees,

This note is to confirm the closure of the Branson Baymont Inn Theatre district. The phone no longer works. The new owners gave the hotel a new name. In discussions with them, we were told that they wouldn’t guarantee us a block of rooms and that any available rooms would be in the front, older section at a significantly higher price. As a result, we will not be using the property. This is sad because we used the facility for many years and it was our primary budget property.

To replace the Baymont Inn, we have selected four new properties, which we inspected and negotiated a good price for rooms. The facilities are as nice or nicer than the Baymont Inn. All offer free WiFi, restaurants close by and offer a free hot breakfast with stay. Here are the properties:


Scenic Hills Inn

Branson, MO 65616

Rate: $60 plus tax

Amenities: Hot breakfast, mini-fridge and microwave in every room, evening ice cream and cobbler reception, elevator.

Rodeway Inn
2651 Shepherd of Hills Expressway

Rate: $55 plus tax

Carriage House Inn

Spinning Wheel Motel
235 Schaefer Drive

When making reservations at these hotels, please mention that you are with the Church of God Feast of Tabernacles group. We are sorry for the closure of the Baymont Inn, but are sure you will enjoy these newly-added facilities.

Baymont Inn housing

The Baymont Inn is now closed and has become the Boardwalk Inn. The phone number and information in the housing brochure is no longer correct. We are currently negotiating prices with the new management for a block of rooms. We will post details as soon as they are known. Thank you for your understanding.

Site Description

Branson, Missouri, will once again be our Feast of Tabernacles site in the Midwest. This will be our 28th year in Branson, and it remains an ideal site.

The Branson area is situated in the midst of the rolling hills and hardwood forests of the beautiful Ozark Mountains. The area has several lakes and numerous hiking trails through pristine wilderness areas. The nature side of Branson allows you to get out into the woods or relax on one of the beautiful lakes.

Branson is also the entertainment mecca of the Midwest, featuring over 25 theaters with live shows, five golf courses, loads of family attractions and several museums, just to name a few. It also features a Sight and Sound Theatre (which at Feast time will be presenting Queen Esther), a zoo and an aquarium. There is truly something for everyone in Branson.

Housing of all types is available—from luxury condominiums to first-class hotels and smaller motels and cabins. Each year it has proved to be one of the most economical sites in the United States.

Services this year will be held at the Yakov Smirnoff Theatre (with plenty of seating), located on the north side of Branson. Once again, there will be several Church of God groups keeping the Feast of Tabernacles in Branson this year, making it an ideal site for families with members in various fellowships.

Fragrance-controlled room available: Yes.

Tax rate for accommodations: 7.5 to 13.8 percent, depending on location.Mike Blackwell

Closest airport: Springfield-Branson (SGF), 55 miles.
