Heidi Hansen

Property Manager
Heidi moved with her husband to Branson from a small town in Iowa in 2005. Since then, Heidi has done a number of things, but she has now discovered that she finds the most passion in places that allow her the freedom to dream and grow both personally and professionally. On top of Heidi being the operations manager at the Rockwood Resort, Heidi and her husband are the proud owners of Ozarks Extreme Outdoors, a local archery, kayak and bait and tackle shop. Heidi’s most proud of her job as a Mother to her two small children Ava and Parker.  Heidi is passionate about spending as much time as possible with her family outdoors, enjoying the beautiful Ozarks; kayaking, shooting their bows, backpacking, camping, rock climbing or fishing.


The team behind Rockwood Resort is dedicated to making your stay as comfortable as possible so you can enjoy your vacation without sweating the small stuff.


Our suites are newly rennovated, decorated, and modernized.  Enjoy a great space like you would expect to find at a 5 star resort.


All of our rooms are fully stocked with everything you will need for your stay so you can start your vacation the second you arrive.
