It has been QUITE A WEEK at The Boone-Docks! Following is photo documentation of one of several BIG projects—The installation of a 43,000lb houseboat via 120-ton crane!
The developers of The Boone-Docks had a vision to create a niche resort of repurposed boats and nautical themed cabins, just outside the Cricket Creek Marina and Campground.
A tremendous amount of planning has gone into this project over the last few years. After several hurdles, changes of plan and months of coordination and preparation, it was finally moving day!
There were more preparations in store for the team once they were on-site. First, the crane was put in to position and assembled.
Next, the boat was carefully backed up into position. Everyone who was present watched the driver work his magic. Thankfully he was a professional boat mover and had nerves of steel!
The hot tub was to be removed from the top deck of the boat for use at another unit.
Once that was complete she was ready to be harnessed up.
The move was tedious, but was safely and successfully completed within about four hours!
We are super excited to see this yacht along with several other unique cabins come into the vacation rental scene near Table Rock Lake in Omaha, AR!
A HUGE THANKS to Jay Gipson Crane, Fitzco Marine Group and the bungalows team for all the hard work that went into this project! #houseboat #ayachtoffun #theboondocks #ozarks #yacht #yachtlife #vacationrentals #cabins #project #discoverbranson #tablerocklake #vrbo #airbnb #vacation #tinyhouse #boatlife
When it's too hot to cook...
It's summer, and let's be honest, no matter how much we all love the reward of our time tending the BBQ grill, sometimes it's just TOO hot to endure! We have put together a list of some of our favorite area restaurants to lighten your summertime cooking load!
Close to Home | Omaha & Ridgedale
Arnie's Barn is one of our favorite spots to dine at Big Cedar. It’s just a few minutes down the road in Ridgedale, MO and the NEXT nearest to The Bungalows! The restaurant, which is situated overlooking the Top of the Rock golf course, offers contemporary Mexican cuisine. Lunch is served daily & you can plan for dinner on Friday or Saturday nights. Check out their menu for more information!
Buzzard Bar is another Big Cedar property. Enjoy bar food and live music pretty much any evening! View their hours and more here.
A more traditional Mexican restaurant, Casa Fuentes, is one of our all-time favorites! Located just off Hwy 65 at the beginning of the 76 Strip you can slip in for a quick bite or easily grab takeout. They also offer online ordering!
Branson's Center Stage Grille & Kaffee Haus is a local restaurant with chef-inspired dishes. They serve breakfast and have amazing specials. We highly recommend the Smoked Prime Rib! Check out their extensive menu here.
If you're craving something more exotic, find your way to Mo Mo Sushi & Grill located across from The Landing in downtown Branson. Their Box Combos are our favorite! Call ahead & bring your order back to the cabin for a nice evening in. 1-417-320-6125
Tallgrass is our TOP Harrison pick! This little restaurant/bar/coffee shop adjoins a health food store and is definitely a hidden gem! Their organically and locally-sourced ingredients make this option stand out amongst dozens of fast-food chains. Find them on Facebook for more info on daily specials, etc.
Jamie's Local Flavor is another great locally-owned and operated restaurant in Harrison. If you're into pork, try the Deep Fried Bacon appetizer or the famed Bigger Than the Bun Pork Tenderloin Sandwich. The menu is extensive and the portions will leave you begging for a box. Find them on Facebook!
