Cameron's Crag owners chose the perfect location for their cozy bed and breakfast
Vistas beckon at Cameron's Crag at Branson.
When Kay and Glen Cameron were looking to start their own bed and breakfast in 1986, they followed the first law of real estate survival: Build it in the right spot, and they will come. Today, the Cameron’s Crag Bed and Breakfast strikes the perfect balance between the remote and accessible in its location. The guest suites overlook the natural beauty of Lake Taneycomo, a site renowned for its excellent trout fishing. But when night falls, the city lights of Branson are visible just three miles distant. All of the city’s celebrated attractions lay at the ready but at a safe enough distance that Cameron’s Crag visitors enjoy the tranquility of their immediate surroundings.
The bed and breakfast’s four suites each present a unique character for visitors. The Around the World Suite features decorative items that the Camerons picked up on their many international travels. The Bird’s Eye View and the Grandview suites both advertise their scenic overlooks in their names, while the Highland Rose Suite caters to couples with special occasions to celebrate. All of the suites feature kingsized beds, hot tubs, and TV setup.
In his Complete Guide to Bed & Breakfasts, Guesthouses & Inns of Missouri, travel author Harry Hagen makes especial mention of Cameron’s Crag’s wide variety of cuisine. Kay has compiled three separate cookbooks of Ozark cuisine and draws from all of them in preparing dishes for guests. Their families have both dwelt in the Ozarks for generations, and both possess a wellspring of knowledge about the area and its traditions. In her cooking, Kay draws on the various culinary cultures of European settlers who originally inhabited the Ozarks.
“The first time I met these two nice people,” Hagen writes, “I felt right at home with them, and I still do.”
