Welcome to the Calm Waters Resort Blog

Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Belinda Houghton and I am one of the owners of Calm Waters Resort. I decided to start a blog so that I can share with everyone some of the exciting things that we have going on around here.


Four years ago, my husband, Chris, and I decided to buy a fishing resort. We both have always loved to travel and some of our favorite family memories have been created while on vacation. I've always loved how Chris's face lights up every time he tells a story about his childhood vacations. His family went to the same place

every single summer and to this day he says that those trips are some of his most favorite childhood memories. We decided that's what we want to do: We want to help families, couples and friends create memories and have the best vacation experience possible; We want people to have the time of their lives and go home smiling because they had the most amazing trip at our resort.


Before we bought Calm Waters Resort, we spent two years traveling from Arizona, where we used to live, to resorts all over the country, searching for the perfect place we could call home. The moment we set foot here, we knew we had found home here in Branson, Missouri.


We are now going into our third summer and we are having so much fun getting to know our guests! We love meeting new people and watching families, friends and couples create memories that will last a lifetime.


Our two boys, Lachlan (12) and Gavin (9), spend the summers working just as hard as we do. You will see them around the resort doing trash runs, towel changes, cleaning grills, as well as meeting other kids and, more often than not, ending up spending time swimming with them and making new friends. You might also meet our dog, Callie, if you stay with us. She's sure to wag hello when she sees you!


We are excited to meet you all and we welcome you to join us on our journey!
