The Belle Rive Mansion


The Belle Rive Mansion, a Colonial-styled estate with countless amenities overlooking the beautiful Lake Taneycomo.

Private resort-like complex holding up to 44 guests! The Belle Rive Mansion is a one-of-a-kind lakefront estate located on beautiful Lake Taneycomo in Branson, MO.

In addition to the guest house, there is a 3rd home right next door that has 5 bedrooms, and 4 baths.  All 3 homes combined allows for a total of 44 guests!

Two of the upstairs master suites have a beautiful view of the lake. Back on the main level, you will find a huge kids’ room with 3 queen beds, a futon, and a full bathroom. A game room, and a movie room are also on the main level.

One of the best highlights of the mansion is the outdoor living space. Step outside to a brand-new, breathtaking, outdoor pool along with a gorgeous, built-in hot tub and an awesome sauna! The lawn is like nothing you have seen before on Lake Taneycomo with 400ft of shoreline and an incredibly flat 2-acre area lawn for any games, events, or activities you want to do. There is a bocce ball court, and a private pickleball court with a basketball hoop. Plus, a firepit and lots of yard games!

The guest house on the property is a 4 bedroom, 3 bath house. There are three queen bedrooms, a full over-queen bunk room, and a sleeper sofa in the downstairs living room. Perfect for the older kids or family who would like a little more privacy! 

The third home, Masquerade Lodge, is a newly renovated 5 bedroom/4 Bathroom home located right next door. This home was also built and owned by Janet Dailey. The name Masquerade Lodge comes from her book, “Masquerade”.  It was after the success of this book that she built her estate. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will need, the dining table holds up to 8 people, and there’s a breakfast nook with seating for 4 people. Upstairs, you’ll find a king master suite, one king bedroom, and one queen bedroom with a hall bathroom. Downstairs, there is a full over queen bunk room en-suite with a futon and another king suite.
