2brVilla2 editedBeauty, convenience, luxury, comfort, and location are all terms that best describe Westgate Branson Woods in Branson, Missouri.  Nestled on 145 acres in the heart of the Ozark Mountains, this family-friendly resort offers numerous activities on and off site as well as exceptional accommodation all in a stunning natural environment.

Westgate Branson Woods provides convenient access to spectacular lakes, championship golf courses, theme parks such as Silver Dollar City, outlet malls, eclectic attractions, family-friendly restaurants, and amazing live shows in Branson. In addition, the resort boasts all the amenities you expect from a full-service resort hotel.

As a traveling Mom … I have encountered some truly stunning condos and villas. But I must say, Westgate Branson Woods definitely takes the cake. Let’s start with the activities programs. Whether you are young or young at heart, the activities program at the resort offers an abundan2brVilla6 editedce of scheduled activities, special events, and supervised programs for guests of all ages. Explore miles of hiking trails, relax in the indoor or outdoor pool, workout in the modern fitness center, rent movies at the activities center, or get competitive with a game of ping-pong. And in the evening, you can cozy up by a campfire and/or enjoy an outdoor barbecue onsite within walking distance of your room. Because Westgate Branson Woods has so much to offer, you are given a resort activity schedule so you can check out the special programs available to you and your family during your stay to help plan your itinerary while you’re staying at the resort.


Westgate Branson Woods is truly a home away from home (with some extra bonuses) resort. My toddler thoroughly enjoyed the comfortable bed and the spacious room to run around in. With a toddler, you don’t just b2brVilla5 editedring some diapers and extra clothes while traveling … you bring your entire house. But if there’s something you’ve forgotten, no need to fret. The 24-hour incredibly friendly staff will assist you in getting what you need. From high chairs to cribs, they have it – or they’ll find it for you. And if you’re looking for something to do to get the little one’s wiggles out, the lit playground is a perfect place for that.

Unfortunately our stay was not long enough to experience all the amenities the resort has to offer. From an onsite pizza place to hiking trails to bike rentals and shuffleboard … you don’t even have to leave the resort property to relax, unwind, and have a great time. But if you do decide to leave the comfort of your room, Branson’s main points of interest are all within five miles of the resort.

Westgate Branson Woods offers traditional resort guestrooms, cozy cabins, as well as condo villas. Upon your arrival, you will be greeted by a friendly security officer at the entrance of the gated resort; checked-in by upbeat, am2BRVilla1 editediable and knowledgeable staff; and then settled in to the guestroom you decided that would best fit your family’s needs. And with Westgate Resort’s “Best Price Guarantee“, you can rest easy knowing you’re getting the best price for your stay. A stay that I can truly say is priceless.

Our stay with Westgate Branson Woods offered all the comforts of my home and I was actually sad to have to leave so soon. Besides the friendly inviting atmosphere, there is so much to see and do at WgBW that I have vowed that our next trip to Branson will solely be inside the gated property of this beautiful, luxurious, and comfortable resort. And I can’t wait!
