About Us

At Happy Valley Lodge, our story is woven with threads of passion, dedication, and a deep-rooted connection to the enchanting landscapes of the Ozarks.

Our Story

Happy Valley Lodge began with a shared passion for the Ozarks’ natural beauty and a commitment to creating a welcoming retreat for visitors. Brad, a lifelong Branson native, and Michelle, who fell in love with the area after many family vacations, decided to channel their love for the region into revitalizing the lodge. In 2016, Brad’s real estate expertise led them to the perfect opportunity to transform Happy Valley Lodge into a serene getaway. Joined by their friends Eddie and Mindy, who have been connected to Branson since their childhood vacations, the team combined their skills and love for the outdoors to build a haven for guests seeking peace and adventure.
