Branson’s Nantucket has been touted as Branson’s finest resort ever built. Their 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes offer breathtaking views of Table Rock Lake and their close proximity to the Highway 76 Strip make these vacation homes simply the best of the best. Sparing no expense on its fine finish and furnishings, Branson’s Nantucket provides their owners multiple luxurious amenities like a 35,000 sqft state of the art clubhouse and an incredibly beautiful indoor pool.

Branson’s Nantucket offers fractional ownership that makes purchasing one of these dream homes a reality for the average consumer. Fractional ownership is an arrangement where a group of individuals or families co-own and share use of a vacation home or condo. Sometimes these arrangements are organized by the users themselves, but more frequently they are set up by a property owner or developer who outfits the property and then creates the legal structure and documents, offering the fractional interests for sale directly to the consumer.

Contrary to what most people think, groups of complete strangers who come together through these packaged offerings are generally much more successful at co-owning and managing the shared property than groups of friends or family members. According to Geoff Petter, Operations Manager of Branson’s Nantucket, “Statistics show that most people only use their vacation home 17-30 days each year. Shared ownership is appealing because it allows people to own only the share of a vacation home that they will use, rather than the entire property.”

The main benefits of fractional ownership with Branson’s Nantucket are not only the lower upfront costs compared to purchasing a luxury home, but also the lower operating and maintenance costs. For example, outright ownership of real estate involves ongoing operating costs such as property tax, insurance, utilities, and maintenance, not to mention the cost of repairing and replacing the furniture and other household goods inside.

According to Petter, “Outright ownership is particularly complex for all those reasons but also because of intermittent usage and the distance between the owner and the property. Most people often require the assistance of a local manager or management company. Fractional ownership at Branson’s Nantucket has kept all the real benefits ownership, made it affordable to the average vacationer and eliminated all hassles of full ownership so people can truly enjoy quality vacation time.”

Branson’s Nantucket offers previews of their Resort throughout the week and is located only minutes away from Branson’s famous Country Music Blvd. strip. Boasting over six million visitors a year, Branson is considered the Live Music Capital of the World and is home to over 80 shows weekly including such notables as Andy Williams, Jim Stafford, the Osmonds and Russian funnyman Yakov Smirnov. As Geoff Petter says, “Being in Branson is like going back in time to a nicer America. Everyone here still says hello to each other and we are still proud to salute the flag. This is without doubt the best place for wholesome family fun and a look back at true American values.”
