Comfy, Cozy and Relaxing - 11/14/2010 15:40:25 Cheryl Jenkins from Polk, MO
The Kite House is like a home away from home. Comfortable, cozy and very relaxing. We enjoyed every minute of our stay there. The rooms are impeccably clean, the food second to none! We plan to return again and again.
Fabulous place - 02/16/2010 08:14:12 Laura from Park Hills, MO
We had a fabulous time here. Donell and Mark were so friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was phenomenal. We hope to return again soon.
GREAT!! - 01/19/2010 19:37:00 Mary from IL
This place was the best! Quiet, clean, pretty, and the host is so nice and friendly. We will be back again. Great honeymoon spot.
AWESOME B&B - 12/15/2009 12:23:27 alan beckworth from BARTLESVILLE, OK
My wife and I were looking to get away for a weekend in Branson, Mo. to celebrate her birthday and our 21st anniversary.We selected the Kite House Bed & Breakfast after a computer search on google for b&b branson area. It was late in the evening so I wrote the webmail and requested a call back the next day between 10am and noon. the call came from Donel, the owner and her husband Mark. We were certainly glad it did! This couple certainly knows how to provide the perfect bed and breakfast experience. Their costs are reasonable, the food was great, the room was lovely, clean and cozy, and the bed and fireplace were wonderful. Mark and Donel made us feel like old friends from the moment we arrived. They personally cooked our breakfast and the quality of the food was supurb.
The B&B home is nestled on a hillside on the Hollister side of Taneycomo lake next to the train depot. It is quiet and removed from the hustle and bustle of the Branson Strip, but the strip is very accessible 8 to 10 minutes.We never felt very far from it all. Host Mark sings bass in an awesome Gospel Quartet, and he offered us free comp tickets to their show. These comps were worth the price of the room. Donel shared many warm stories about their life in Branson, and the raising of their son Jacob. We were touched by this family's God fearing attitude and the spirit these people have in their life. THEY ARE THE WHOLE PACKAGE!
If you choose to try this B&B, you will get your money's worth. I will be telling my friends and family how great a time we had there. , and encourage anyone who reads this to give the Kite House and Mark and Donel a try. YOU WILL BE PLEASED!

Highly Recommended - 11/11/2009 10:34:12 AllenTXJB from Allen, TX
My sister and I stayed in the hillside suite at the Kite House. Mark and Donel were the nicest hosts. We loved our suite, our private hot tub, the complimentary tickets to the Grand Jubilee which features Mark in the show, (you'll see him all over town on the billboards), the wonderful breakfasts in the dining room, the great conversations with Donel, Mark and other guests, their two Pomeranian dogs, Ruthie and Shadow, their friendly cat that adopted them and the location (just minutes away from downtown Branson). We came as strangers and feel that we left as friends. Absolutely the best place to stay in town. Beats a hotel any day! We already reserved for next year. Probably would not recommend for people who don't walk steps very well. House is on a hill and there are lots of steps going up and down.
awesome - 05/27/2009 20:01:49 Diana from Belleville, IL
I used to think that B&B's were for the older folks. I have now changed my mind. My husband and I spent our honeymoon at the Kite House, and I shall say that we plan to spend our anniversaries there too. The hosts are wonderful and the food is better than I could ever do. I have visited Branson quite a bit over the time of my life. This is the best place to stay. Please check into the honeymoon suite if you need a place for honeymoons. Donel and Mark know a lot about Branson and are very helpful with what is going on or places to eat dinner. The price you can't beat. Thanks Donel and Mark for the wonderful time. See you again soon.
Wonderful! - 11/13/2008 13:55:11 Angela Watford from Byhalia, MS
On my first visit to Branson, MO in Nov. 2008, I enjoyed it although the weather was a bit cold. Donel and Mark are absolutely awesome people, her breakfasts are super, love the blueberry french toast. The shows are amazing and Mark is awesome in the Grand Jubilee, I hope to visit again in the summer and I would love to stay at the Kitehouse again. Very down to earth and comfortable, home away from home atmosphere.
Stay at Kite House - 11/09/2008 21:26:45 Matt lyon from N/A
I would definitely stay here again for a nice little get away with the wife. The room was clean, cozy, and nice. Breakfast was good. The location was perfect- the Landing in a few minutes, 75 strip in 5-10minutes, or west side of strip in 15min. (or less) by hwy 165. Donel & Mark were great to visit with. The show tickets were very good, better than expected. No complaints.
3 doors away from Heaven - 11/07/2008 19:35:28 Lenita from Oklahoma City, OK
The tranquil, serene, antique setting is the most relaxing, peaceful refuge I've ever found. Each time I've visited, I feel like I've found the stairway leading to Heaven. Being at The Kite House healed my wounded spirit, gave me strength to take on life once more and offered hope that romance was still alive out there. Donel and Mark are truly a gift to anyone so lucky to meet them. Thank you both for everything. Hope to see you soon!
Our favorite getaway - 10/23/2008 17:33:24 Gary & Alice O from Wentzville MO
We stayed 2 nights and loved it as much as the first time we visited. Donel is a treasure and a great cook. Mark's show is one of the best we've seen in Branson. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. It is a quiet getaway but close to everything too.
Relaxing Vacation - 08/30/2008 19:20:49 Tom and Eunice from Allen, Texas
We have just returned from a four day visit, August, 2008. The rooms will remind you of going home to visit your mother. The hot tubs will help you forget that you are not as young as you use to be. The breakfast is better than you have ever made for yourself. And Mark and Donel are the friendliest couple you will meet. Stay here and have a place to retreat to at the end of the day.
Very Beautiful & Restful - 07/14/2008 12:09:37 Janice from Manhattan, IL
The most peaceful vacation we ever had. Lovely area, great food!
Great Getaway - 07/09/2008 22:56:58 Luke from Springfield, MO
Great rooms! Great Rates! Great Food! Great Show!
WHAT A GREAT BIRTHDAY GETAWAY! - 02/25/2008 16:16:52 Pat Schwartz from Omaha,NE
My sister and I just spent 5 nights and four days in the Branson area. We had so much fun thanks to Donel! She told us about great places to see and eat; it seems as if she knows EVERYONE. Neither of us had been there before. The breakfasts and conversation are a great memory; it seems like we became "friends" instantly. Mark's show was very entertaining; I'm sure it is even more when he is feeling 100%! THANKS so much for making our time together SO MUCH FUN!
Kite House - THE place to stay - 02/25/2008 08:37:16 Troy & Brooke Rogers from Republic, Mo
If peace and relaxation are high priorities on your vacation, Kite House is for you! Surrounded by beautiful trees and tranquility, let your mind take you back to simpler times as you enjoy the historic and rustic setting. Your host, Donel, is friendly and quite helpful with directions and all-things-Branson! Plus, she'll make you a breakfast you won't soon forget! Enjoy your stay!
This area is Beautiful - 02/25/2008 06:00:19 Theresa Bremer from Noblesville, In
My sister Pat and I truly enjoyed our stay at Kite House Bed and Breakfast. We spent many hours each morning conversing with Donel while enjoying breakfast. She was kind enough to share some of her recipes with us! Can't wait to try them at home. Mark's show was fun. We had a great time! I was personally touched by the recognition of Our American Veterans - especially now as my oldest son prepares to head off to war in Iraq. We even renamed Hollister as The One Train Track Town!! We left feeling like we just met a new friend. Theresa Bremer
Wonderful! - 02/17/2008 20:31:27 Aaron & Shelley McClure from Wichita, Ks
We spent our 3rd anniversary at the beautiful Kite Home. Donel is a wonderful hostess. Mark was under the weather, I'm sorry to say. The show New South gave was one to remember. It was the best we had seen all weekend.
We have recommended it to our friends and will be back again.
Cottage Living in Branson - 10/08/2007 08:31:56 Jeff & Jill from Festus, MO
This was a stay in a classic cottage, straight from the magazines. Moss and flowers grow from the cracks, stone walls, quilts, and even a hot tub to escape. Mark put on an amazing show and Donel was the icing on all of this - Great food and Great people! Thanks for a true escape from our fast paced - stressed out lives!
Wonderful - 09/24/2007 19:09:21 Elizabeth from Springfield, MO
The Kite House was a wonderful weekend getaway. Donel made the most delicious breakfast every morning and was always smiling which started my day off great! Mark has an amazing voice and the show was something different, but very good. I would recommend this to anyone and hope to go back one day!
great stay at the Kite House - 09/16/2007 22:57:37 J Hughes from Benton, Ar
Donel and Mark made the stay tremendous. Her morning breakfasts started off the day. See Mark's Show as it is a treat unto itself. The location of Kite House is an easy drive to Branson Landing without going thru downtown Branson. For good Mexican food check out Little Hacienda right across the train tracks. This will the first of many visits to come to the Kite House.
Outstanding !!!!! - 09/15/2007 21:43:45 Dave Vermilion from Carrizozo, NM
The Hosts, Donel & Mark, treated us like family. The Kite House was a home away from home and just as quite and relaxing. The breakfasts were outstanding. Just a few minutes south of Branson, it was well worth the drive. We will be back next year and have already recomended it to everyone who has asked about our trip.
Good Times - 08/14/2007 09:11:41 Kellie Ranciglio from St Louis, MO
I just recently stayed at the Kite House with my two children. The house was beautiful and the whole atmosphere was relaxing. I loved the breakfasts each morning and being able to move at a much slower pace then if we had stayed on the strip. Donel and Mark were great. I'll be back and I am bringing friends next time. Thanks Donel for a wonderful experience.
Best Place Ever - 07/04/2007 22:49:38 Sabrina from Nixa, MO
My husband and I, along with another couple stayed at The Kite House for a weekend getaway a year ago. We had such a great experience we've gone back 4 more times!! Mark and Donel are so hospitable, you couldn't ask for more accomodating hosts! The atmosphere is quiet and private. A perfect place to getaway and relax.
