Just found out about this place...... Pretty cool...




Wildwood was built during the " Roaring 20's" by men of dreams. These men dreamed of building a magnificent, commodious, modern resort hostel. They dreamed of bringing their children out to hunt or fish on the 2000 acres that encompassed the surrounding wild country. They dreamed of gathering during the evening for an elegant dinner served on white tablecloths, with fine china and dressed in their finest. They dreamed of dancing the nights away listening to Wildwood own orchestra. They dreamed of the magic of music..


Wildwood set idle for years, nestled in the Ozark hills like a beautiful sleeping giant. After reopening the lodge a few years ago, I wanted to bring back the magic of music to "The Wildwood". Fortunately, I met Tom Shipley of Brewer & Shipley, and since then the tradition of music has returned. A friend said to me,"Why not more?". I took her to heart, and the annual Wildwood Fall Concert Series was born. Since then, artists like the legendary rock & roll man Johnnie Johnson, Doc Watson, Dave Mason, Taj Mahal, America, Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Arlo Guthie, The Flatlanders, Hot Huna, Tony Rice, John Hammond, Pure Prarie League, Richie Havens, Vassar Clements, Leo Kottke bluegrass icon and friend of Wildwood, John Hartford, Mickey Thomas, the signature voice of Jefferson Starship, and many, many more have performed at Wildwood.



A getaway at Wildwood has been compared to a week-end at Grandma's house. Concert day, guests arrive, get settled in, and relax until dinner time....6pm sharp! Just like Grandma's house, everyone eats their hearty, homestyle mealtogether, in the spacious, old fashioned dining room. Don't get too full, homemade desert and coffee come next! There's no need to rush a good thing, and remember my motto "You're here to relax!". While everyone is enjoying dinner, our staff is busy rearranging the lobby, adjusting the sound system, and building a roaring fire in the grand old stone fireplace. For the convenience of our guests, we have a full service bar, open for the duration of the performance.

This looks very cool, Mike! Beautiful area down there. What a neat idea these folks have come up with ... concert/lodging/dinner wrapped into a package and located in a quaint small town (keeping it low-key ... unlike their southern neighbor Branson).
