Loved it so much we made reservations to come back as we were checking out! Gotta be honest, when we first pulled into the drive we were not sure what to expect. Tom greeted us at the office and gave us a brief tour of the lodge and rundown of the offerings and said we would probably be sorry we... More

This lodge is amazing!!!! The food is ridiculous, the service is amazing, the rooms are rustic but charming! They have mini golf, a tree house with a little zip line, a fire pit, a pool, a hot tub. And it is sitting right in the middle of beautiful and amazing woods. Right by the Ozark trail for a hike. I... More

My husband and I wanted to enjoy nature and solitude for a few days. Wilderness Lodge allowed us to feel close to nature but not have to worry about tents, sleeping bags, and campfires! The friendly staff was extremely attentive and helpful; the food was superb and plentiful, the menus varied and, as advertised, "gourmet." Our cabin (Hilltop #22) was... More

Recently spent two weekend nights at Wilderness ranch for our mini-vacation with my daughter and her two young children (almost 5 yrs old and a 2.5 year old). It was perfect for them and us, too. The kids loved the river (catching crawfish!) and tubing. The pool was perfect after a hot afternoon at the river. The food was excellent... More

We just spent a couple of days at the Wilderness Lodge and had a great experience. There was so much to do in such a short period of time. The staff was fantastic and made you feel like family. The food was fabulous and the price was very reasonable. We are definitely going to book with them again.

My girlfriends and I have stayed at the Wilderness Lodge for our girls weekend for the past two years and we will definitely stay there again next year. We stayed in Jacks Cabin and were impressed by the cleanliness of this 1910 circa cabin. The a/c worked extremely well and loved the screened in porch, which included two daybeds, a... More

We were here last year and just love it. The staff and everyone that works there are so nice. Breakfast and dinner is included in with your... More

Having just returned from Wilderness Lodge yesterday, I couldn't wait to give my review! The owners and staff of this resort couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. At each meal, we were asked if we wanted more! Now, my husband can eat and even HE didn't ask for seconds. This is a good balance of rustic cabins away from... More

Just returned from a wonderful week at the Wilderness Lodge Resort. My wife and our two little boys (6) and (3) had a terrific relaxing time exploring the grounds, hanging by the river, chillin' at the pool and in the lodge, and playing games in the rec room. It was a wonderful setting to re-establish bonds with friends and family... More
