Our lives have taken more twists and turns than an Ozark highway but we certainly thank God for bringing us “home” to the Ozarks. While our current home is Enid Oklahoma with our families, we love to get away to one of our “homes away from home” in Branson as often as we can. We loved the Branson area long before we bought our first cabin and still enjoy our working "vacations" there.
Charles grew up in Enid and served 25 years on the Enid Police Department. He then worked 14 years on his second and more dangerous career as a Drivers License Examiner for the state of OK. He has now retired from that career and handles the cabin business full time. He is a radical OU football fan and spends all the home games in Norman cheering on his team. He is also a huge fan (not quite as radical) of the St Louis Cardinals.
Brenda grew up in the small Missouri town of Houston, about 80 miles east of Branson. She and the Branson Entertainment experience were “born” about the same time and she feels they have grown up together. She has many fond memories of family and school trips to Branson and Silver Dollar City. She is a Registered Nurse and has recently retired from an Enid hospital.
Traveling to interesting places is a great love of ours and someday we hope to divide our time between Oklahoma, Branson, the rest of our nation, and the world.
We are so thankful for our huge and wonderful blended family. We are extremely blessed! We have 7 children—all grown now with spouses; and (at the present time) 13 grandchildren-7 boys and 6 girls. Wow! We are so very proud of them all!! Their careers range from Firefighter/Paramedic, Occupational Therapist, various Sales positions, Teachers, State Trooper/Army Chaplain, Accountant, Oilman, and Homemakers. We are still trying to get everybody together at the cabins at one time.
We dreamed of someday owning a log home and still pinch ourselves sometimes when we realize we now own SEVEN of them! It was a huge step a faith to buy the first cabin and then as doors were opened, we found the steps a little easier. God has truly blessed us above all we could ask or think and we give Him the thanks for it all. We truly love the vacation rental business because it has enabled us to meet the nicest folks from all over the country. The Branson visitors are just a special breed of people and we love getting to know you and sharing our vacation homes with you.
