The Thousand Hills 2-bdrm condo my brother and our spouses discovered was in "The Legacy" region of the resort. Wonderful location just behind the Grand Palace Theatre in central Branson, yet tucked into the Golf Course affording a relaxing wooded view. Be sure to ask for the parking lot level rooms because the upstairs and downstairs condos are somewhat of a bother if toting luggage. Having a sleeper sofa in the living area and an "extra" hall closet, our condo could have just as easily handled 3 couples instead of our two.
The initial appearance of our condo was as if the owners had just stepped away--definitely a homelike feel. The condo was only "missing" food in the fullsize frig and clothes in the dressers and closets to prove that we had not accidently walked into someone's home! The 2 bathrooms--one including a walk-in shower!--were thoughtfully provided with the resort style essentials experienced in finer hotels. "Home-cooked" meals were easily prepared in the stocked fullsize kitchen with plentiful counter space allowing for my brother's tasty but messy culinary talents. (Before we arrived, the place was spotlessly clean!) The king-sized beds were delightful--providing a suitable night's end for each of our busy days. The ceiling fans in each room also offered a refreshing feel that added to our comfort.
The washer-dryer combo referenced in other reviews came provided with laundry detergent; an unexpected surprise. But the highlight of our golfcourse-side condo was the screened outside patio! Ahh, we never realized a morning cup of coffee could taste so good.... One downside warning about this condo though: it is too teasingly close to the outlet malls--forcing us to exercise our credit cards more than we had anticipated!
