Longitude Announces New Boutique Hotel Repositioning in Branson, MO


Springfield, MO: Local real estate developers Jeremy Wells and Dustin Myers, partners at Longitude and Flyover Developments, are thrilled to officially announce their involvement in the development, repositioning, and renovation of The Ozarker Lodge located at 995 Highway 165 in Branson, Missouri.

Slated to open in the summer of 2023, The Ozarker Lodge is set to be the first-of-its-kind boutique hotel experience in the Ozarks. Partnering with Eagle Point Hotel Partners, owners of several boutique hotels throughout the country such as Anvil Hotel in Jackson, WY, Calistoga Motor Lodge in Napa Valley, CA, and Basecamp Hotel in Boulder, CO, the development team is excited to bring a new level of modern hospitality and unique amenities to the Ozarks.

The Ozarker Lodge will feature 102 remodeled guest rooms, including family bunk-style rooms, as well as a coffee and wine bar, a creekside experience with a new pool, seasonal rotating food trucks, a natural play area for kids, and cedar soaking tubs near the famous Fall Creek. Guests will also have access to a variety of amenities, including a retail shop featuring local partnerships and unique events. Sheldon Pruiett is General Manager at the Lodge and Meredith Tatum, previously the co-owner of the Tuscan Hill event venue, will be the Director of Guest Experience.

The Ozarker Lodge is committed to celebrating the history and culture of the Ozarks and Branson area in a modern and relevant way. Through local partnerships and special events, the hotel will highlight the best the Ozarks has to offer, including showcasing the work of local artists, makers, and craftsmen. The hotel’s retail shop will feature a curated selection of locally made products, and the hotel will host events and activities that focus on the area’s rich history and culture. The development team is dedicated to promoting the Ozarks and Branson area and is working closely with local businesses and organizations to create an authentic and sustainable experience for guests.

“We are thrilled to be a part of such an exciting project,” said Jeremy Wells. “The Ozarker Lodge will deliver the perfect blend of timeless design, modern hospitality, and thoughtful experiences for guests. From the very beginning, our team has set out to highlight the best of Branson and the surrounding region, and celebrate why so many of us are proud to call the Ozarks our home. We are also thrilled to have Sheldon Pruiett and Meredith Tatum on our team, their experience and expertise will greatly contribute to the success of the hotel. We can’t wait to share it with the world.”
