Ever had trouble finding that special gift for your special someone? Got an upcoming anniversary, significant birthday or retirement? Let me throw this idea out to you: a bed and breakfast that features an in-house bass fishing guide.
White River Lodge Bed and Breakfast on Table Rock Lake and Bass and Baskets Bed and Breakfast on Lake of the Ozarks feature just that.
Bill and Becky Babler had logs hauled in from Colorado to build their White River Lodge Bed and Breakfast, which sits high on a hill near Branson and overlooks beautiful Table Rock Lake. Bill guides for bass on Table Rock and trout on Lake Taneycomo. Becky is an excellent host and great cook. I can personally attest, you will wake each morning with anticipation of the fantastic breakfast you are about to enjoy.
Ed and Deb Franco are the owners of Bass and Baskets Bed and Breakfast. It offers easy access to Lake of the Ozarks from Horseshoe Bend Road, right in between Lake Ozark and Osage Beach. You literally walk down 10 steps to the dock and climb aboard your bass-fishing chariot. A large deck overlooking the lake, outstanding food, and great hospitality ensure you never want to leave.
Bill and Ed, (better known as Big Ed), are both experienced, Coast Guard licensed guides who know their lakes, know how to catch fish, and pride themselves in teaching you how to become a better fisherman.
They are both kind, easy going, and work hard to make sure your day on the water is a trip of a lifetime. They both run top-notch equipment that provides safe and excellent fishing platforms, and you will enjoy their high quality rods and reels.
Without question Becky and Deb are the brains of the operation. They both work tirelessly to ensure you have first-rate accommodations, and I can assure you, you will never leave the table hungry. Bill and Ed will be the first ones to tell you they are married to princesses.
