Where to Stay in Branson for Christmas
Add even more cheer to your holiday season by visiting one of Branson's most festive Christmas lodging destinations.
The joyful atmosphere in Branson - America's Christmas Tree City - makes us a world-wide Christmas destination for families and groups year after year. To celebrate the joy of the Christmas season, many of our lodging facilities organize annual holiday events and attractions for their guests and the public.
Big Cedar Lodge
‘Tis the season for the coziest ugly sweaters, hot cocoa by the fire, and twinkling lights as far as you can see. Take in all the festive fun at Big Cedar Lodge like ice skating, visits from St. Nick and weekly winter workshop activities during our Home for the Holidays season. And of course, over 1 million holiday lights make Big Cedar a must-see destination for your family holiday tour. Treat your group to a celebration they will never forget and take advantage of these special offers.
Chateau On The Lake
Chateau on the Lake Resort, Spa and Convention Center shows off their Christmas spirit by displaying beautiful holiday décor and lights throughout the resort. Walk outside your door and enjoy the magic of the season by making ornaments, caroling by the fire or watching holiday movies. Chateau on the Lake offers Christmas dinner on December 25 and some New Year festivities as well. Kick off 2022 with brunch on New Year's Eve, then prepare to dance the night away at the New Year's Eve Celebration.
Still Waters Resort
Still Waters Resort transforms into a Winter Wonderland during the holidays. The fun activities include an inflatable adventure park, craft building, and more! The resort is only minutes from Silver Dollar City where you can enjoy one of America's most celebrated holiday attractions. A new shuttle service for guests provides free rides to and from the park.
Silver Dollar City's Wilderness
The Wilderness features a variety of rustic log cabins that will make you feel right at home during the holidays. Visitors can choose from loft cabins, pioneer cabins or rustic cabins with or without kitchenettes and fireplaces. Cabin dwellers have access to a free shuttle service to Silver Dollar City where you can experience An Old Time Christmas with over 6.5 million twinkling lights and live holiday shows. Within the same five mile radius is the Shepherd of the Hills Trail of Lights, Branson's original drive-through light trail with themed and animated displays winding its way through the 160-acre Shepherd of the Hills Homestead. Complimentary Hot Chocolate at the end of the Trail!
One of the best places to be during the holidays is Downtown Branson! Be prepared for a dazzling and luxurious night’s stay at the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel or the Hilton Promenade, both one of Branson’s top hotels. Located next door is the Polar Express, a train ride from the Branson Scenic Railway that will remind kids (and adults!) how wonderful and special the holidays can be...if you just believe! Enjoy a beautiful view of the Adoration Nativity Scene, a 28-foot-tall nativity that stands high above the Branson skyline. To top off your Christmas spirit, just a few feet away is the Branson Landing where you can find a 63-foot state-of-the-art Christmas Tree and check off your holiday shopping list.
