"Relaxing, Tasty Fresh Lunch"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed November 20, 2017 NEW
It’s not often one can have a fantastic meal in a beautiful rustic dining room on a college campus at a reasonable cost but that’s exactly what you’ll get here. Creative dishes with a variety to suit every diet restriction, each made with fresh, often homegrown ingredients, including the beef. Lunch is complimented with fresh items from the on site bakery and served with spreads made from seasonal ingredients. Service is prompt and professional, provided by students who are able to keep any tips they earn even though their wages go to pay for college costs. A beautiful desert presentation left us drooling but with no room to partake. Lunch for two with non-alcoholic beverages was $31+tip. We liked everything about this place and left feeling well fed and quite relaxed, eager to return next time we are in the area. Recommend reservations as the crowds can get quite large, making the wait longer than an hour at times.

We have stayed at several places in the Branson area, as we have vacationed there at least 3 times a year for the past 5 years, but we won't stay anywhere else now that we have found the Keeter Center! We have been spoiled! The whole idea behind staffing with college students for work experience is profound; providing solid work experience for students is intelligent and keeps costs down for guests. Between personalized greetings by the cleaning staff, the great food (cookies,snacks,milk,chocolates), room service, quality spacious accommodations, and a great can't go wrong!

We have been all around the world and never had a better experience. The amazing students run the hotel and cater to your every need. From the breakfast in your room (complete with flowers), to the cookies and milk at bedtime ( choice of whole, 2percent, or skim......with turndown cookies as big as your head). Huge Room was fabulous with absolutely nothing lacking and everyone had a smile on their face...... Truly, service with a smile. It was very affordable......

"Fabulous rooms & service, Unabashedly Christian"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed October 30, 2017 NEW
Keep in mind this hotel is part of a college campus that is Christian and dry! Expect bible verses and no alcohol/minibar as it is a dry campus. If that is ok with you then expect to be delighted! The college students work the hotel, they cook, they serve food they are the housekeepers, they work the front desk. The gift shop carries all the student made items: jams, stone ground flour, handmade pottery and wood products. The nightly HUGE cookies come with fresh milk from the on-site dairy. (You can go see them milking the cows) An unexpected part was the in-room breakfast service, the basic is free (choose from yogurt parfait plus a muffin or fruit and a muffin), upgrade to a hot breakfast for $10 per person. It is served in your room. The rooms are huge ! I had a business suite and it had two beds, sofa bed, table and chairs for 6, 3 TV's, kitchenette with full sized coffee maker (and their own freshly ground coffee) and complimentary snacks/drinks. The bathroom was huge. There are also robes and an umbrella for your use.

Keeter Lodge is an extraordinary place to stay. Students from the college work at the lodge and other industries there on the campus. We have NEVER stayed in a lovlier room...... Huge room with every amenity provided. Breakfast served in your room and homemade cookies and a fresh bottle of milk before bed. Wonderful food in the dining room. I can't say enough about this place. J Jackson
