The Falls Village

Visiting The Falls Village is like coming home to family. The friendly staff will welcome you like long-lost relatives, lavishing you with attention and catering to your needs. In fact, the resort is designed from a family perspective – from the outdoor picnic area to the kid's playground.

With almost 22 acres of land, The Falls Village is nestled in the woods amid the hills and valleys of the Ozark Mountains. The picnic area, complete with barbeque grills, is not only a place to eat, but also a place to meet other owners and make new friends. After eating and greeting, you can challenge the kids (or your new friends) to a game of mini-golf, shuffleboard or horseshoes. Or you can swim in your choice of indoor or outdoor pools. For children, there is also a covered kid’s pool, playground and game room.

When you return to your vacation home, the warm, contemporary décor will greet you and the wooded views will soothe you. Settle in for the night in front of the TV or enjoy a relaxing, romantic soak in a heart-shaped whirlpool tub (selected homes only).
