This May as we approach our 15th year in the B&B business, it feels a lot like May 2005 when we were getting ready to open a newly built WRL to guests. Unfortunately now that Corvid-19 entered our world, it’s not just us facing new challenges and changes but our area, state, country, and world. Yes, we are in this together and hopefully that will be a good thing.
In our ‘neck of the woods’, we are cautiously opening with changes that will evolve with the changing situation. As before, we strive to keep our guest and clients safe and satisfied as they come to experience what we have to offer. We are staying informed of CDC and local guidelines. We are monitoring our occupancy, room spacing or time between guests, common area social distancing, and cleaning. As a small independent home-business, we need to earn money to stay in business so our booking and lodging policies remain in place. However as we have in the past, we will make exceptions and extensions in emergencies, including illness. If you have concerns/questions, please call.
Area attractions, shows, and restaurants will be making changes to adjust as well. Explorebranson.com, business websites, and social media may be good resources to help with your planning. You may find links from our Area Info webpage. WRL caters to couples, friends, small groups, and will have suggestions for meals and activites in the Branson Lakes and NW Arkansas areas. Capt. Bill Babler is taking guided fishing trips for bass on Table Rock Lake or trout on Lake Taneycomo and if you are staying at the lodge, get $25 off your trip. Give the lodge a call to check his availability or to book a fishing trip. During the months of May and June in honor of WRL’s 15th birthday we have a $15 per night and 15% discount off three or more nights stay. We have extended the 15% through September. When you book direct the discounts are figured automatically.
I suspect highs and lows will continue in 2020. We wish you and yours good health, peace and patience as you go through the year and hope to see you at the lodge or on the water again.
