  • Insider's Info

    Travelers are always looking for memorable and relaxing experiences. Let’s discover more through the words of our innkeepers. Many thanks to Glen and Janet for sharing their own secrets with BBOnline.com!
    Why do most travelers stay at your inn?

    A combination of special occasion romantic getaways and Branson MO vacationers. Travelers love that we are close to Branson MO attractions but away from the traffic.

    What are you best known for? What makes your inn unique? What do you love most about your inn?

    We are known for our private hot tubs and decks overlooking Lake Taneycomo and the Branson MO skyline. We have been told that our suite with a sunken indoor hot tub is the only one of its kind. I love that Cameron’s Crag offers the best of Branson and the beauty of the Ozarks. It is peaceful and relaxing with a view overlooking the lake and valley yet conveniently located to take advantage of the many attractions Branson has to offer.

    If someone has never been to your city, what is the #1 reason to come visit?

    Live entertainment (over 100 choices and more theatre seats than Broadway) set amid the natural beauty of the Ozarks.

    What’s the best kept secret about the area?

    College of the Ozarks – a four-year accredited liberal arts college that does not charge tuition. Students attend on a work/study scholarship that allows them to work for their education.

    If a traveler is staying at your inn for 4 nights, what should he/she do in the area?

    Attend a couple of the more than 100 Branson shows; spend some time shopping for anything from handcrafted items to name brand outlet bargains; visit the campus of College of the Ozarks and the museum on the campus; enjoy the great outdoors with hiking, nature parks, zip lines, or horseback riding; visit Silver Dollar City, one of the top rated theme parks in the country with several festivals throughout the year in addition to rides, crafts, shows, and a cave tour; get out on the water at one of three area lakes for fishing, scenic cruises, kayaking, skiing, or boating; play golf at one of nearly a dozen courses; enjoy the view while relaxing on their private deck with hot tub.

    Is there anything within walking distance of your inn?

    Guests should plan to drive to area attractions. The closest dining, shopping, and area attractions are less than a mile away but our location atop a bluff does not lend itself to walking.

    What is your favorite restaurant/food in the area?

    The Keeter Center at College of the Ozarks. The restaurant is part of the culinary arts program at the College as well as an example of the work/study scholarship program that allows students to attend college tuition free.

    Any good area guides/websites that travelers could reference?

    The Branson Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce and Convention and Visitors Bureau website at Explore Branson.com provides information on area attractions, dining, shopping, events, and more.

    How many rooms does your inn have?

    Four, each with private entrance and in-suite bath.

    Do you accept pets?

    We do not accept pets. The Branson Pet Resort and Camp Little Paws are well-respected pet lodging services in the area.

  • Meet The Innkeepers

     

    Glen Cameron is the resident innkeeper. He and wife Kay designed and built Cameron's Crag as a Bed & Breakfast, opening in 1986. Kay ran the B&B while Glen worked at nearby College of the Ozarks and assisted with the B&B whenever possible. He held several administrative positions at the college before retiring in 2003 as Dean of Campus and International Services after 34 years of service. Glen has been involved with Boy Scouts of America for many years, serving as District Chairman, Order of the Arrow Advisor, Council Commissioner, Council President, Area Vice President, and District Executive, among other capacities. He is an active Rotarian and Past District Governor of Rotary International District 6080. He also devotes time and energy to several church, community, and civic organizations as well as traveling and spending time with his children and grandchildren. Following Kay's death in 2009, he became more active with the Bed & Breakfast, assisted by long-time assistant innkeeper/manager, Janet Miller.

    Janet Miller is the manager and non-resident innkeeper. She is originally from central Illinois and moved to the Branson area in 1978 to attend School of the Ozarks (now College of the Ozarks) where she worked in Glen's office as a student. She returned to the College in 1990 as a staff member and eventually began working part-time at Cameron's Crag in addition to her full-time position at the College. Following Glen's retirement from Collegeof the Ozarks in 2003 Janet ran Cameron's Crag while Glen and his wife Kay spent a semester in The Netherlands with the international exchange program. Janet and her husband Kevin have three "20 something" children and one grandchild, all of whom live in the Branson area. Janet is active in ministry at Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church in Branson and enjoys "researching" Branson area shows and attractions. 

  • Breakfast & Cookbooks

    Breakfast is part of the Cameron's Crag experience. Menus vary but a typical first course may include a fruit parfait layered with blended yogurt, fresh fruit, granola, and topped with a dollop of homemade whipped cream. For the main course, perhaps an Unfolded Omelet served with a side of sausage links and fresh-baked Irish Cheese Scones or Apple Streusel Muffins, a glass of juice, and a cup of fresh brewed coffee. Or maybe your menu will include our Decadent French Toast and Pecan Praline French Toast served with an assortment of toppings along with Canadian Bacon or Country Ham. If you have a food allergy or dietary restriction, please let us know. We will do our best to accommodate your needs.

    A cookbook by founding innkeeper, Kay Cameron, allows you to enjoy some of the recipes served at Cameron's Crag, as well as many more Ozark style recipes.
