Sometimes the two of you just need to sneak away to reconnect with each other and recharge your romantic energy. And the right resort can supply just the kind of spark or mood you need. Here are a few of our favorite places to cuddle up in the Show Me State.
Hidden away in 500 acres of the Mark Twain National Forest, on the shoulders of the Ozark and the shore of Table Rock Lake, Stonewater Cove Resort Resort and Spa is an all-inclusive wilderness resort. In its remote setting, you can walk the shoreline, hike through the woods, or enjoy spa services made for two.
If you like your getaways to feel like they’re remote but still close enough to the action that you can enjoy the best local entertainment and nightlife, then Camden on the Lake Resort & Spa is for you. Cruise out on Lake Ozark, enjoy live music, or simply settle in to a massage.
Chateau on the Lake Resort is only 10 minutes away from Branson’s renowned entertainment district, but tucked a world away on the shores of Table Rock Lake. Indulge yourselves in the spa, get out on the lake, or head into town and take in the best and brightest of Branson.
D’Monaco Villas Luxury Resort is another great place for a couple to take advantage of both the gorgeous waters of Table Rock Lake and the bright lights of Branson. You decide: Stay in and luxuriate in luxury or go out and tear up the town. Or you can always do a little of both.
Located in the heart of east-central Missouri’s wine country, along the Missouri River bluffs, Hermann Hill offers a Tuscan-style escape in the center of the Show Me State. Luxurious accommodations and an on-site spa will make it hard to leave when it’s time for a return to reality.
How about your own rustic-yet-updated cottage on the shores of Lake of the Ozarks? You can find one at the 40-year old Sunset Inn Resort. Enjoy quiet sunsets, lakeside strolls, quiet time on the water, or hikes on the property. Cozied up in your lakview cabin, you’ll feel like the only couple on Earth.
Big Cedar Lodge evokes the classic, Western luxury log resort style you’d expect to see in Jackson Hole or Big Sky. Yet, it happens to be in the wooded Ozark Mountains of southern Missouri. Golf, biking, hiking, horseback riding, and a marina on Table Rock Lake will ensure that you won’t want to leave this gorgeous property.

Alpine Lodge Resort is only a mile from Silver Dollar City, perched on the shore of Table Rock Lake. You’ll enjoy quick and easy access to all of Branson’s best entertainment. But then you can retreat to Alpine’s 15 secluded acres and feel like you’re in a whole new world.
Couples who enjoy angling together—or just the sound a riffling river makes as it rides its banks downstream past your modern cottage—will love the Riverwood Resort. Located just outside of Bennett Spring State Park on the banks of the Niangua River, Riverwood makes for a serene, long weekend.
For a romantic retreat in a remote rustic cabin with a stone-hearthed fireplace, head to the banks of the wild Black River in the forested Ozark Mountains. There you’ll find the Wilderness Lodge Resort. Two gourmet meals—a hearty breakfast and a three-course dinner—are served daily as part of your stay.
