We love Big Cedar - we live in Maryland and have been there 4 times - all in December, first our honeymoon and then for our anniversaries. The service is exceptional! We arrived in our log cabin to find an anniversary card and a cake (which was delicious by the way)! Big Cedar pays attention to the small details that... More

We have visited Big Cedar about 16-17 times since we have been married. Every year it gets better and better. Cabins are cozy, private and so welcoming. Food is great. Service is quick and everyone has a smile and is very friendly. Big Cedar has added more activities and ammenities recently too which is great. We visit in the winter... More

We arrived on Sunday, I woke up that morning sick, we drove 8 hrs there, and when we arrived earlier than check in, they did our check in right away, and were really understanding and thoughful. They sent a wellness bag to our room for me, containing chicken noodle soup, crackers and Sprite. The soup was already hot and everything,... More

We attended a small wedding held at Big Cedar Lodge. It is a beautiful, rustic resort with hotel rooms, lodge rooms, and cabin rentals. We had extremely nice weather for the end of November, so we were able to use the outdoor hot tub. Food in Buzzard's Bar was delicious (best fried chicken livers that I've ever had!) The wedding/reception... More

I love Big Cedar. We have been several times in the past few years. We have stayed at different locations in the resort. My favorite is down closer to the water. The pools and the lake are within walking distance. We had a great time with family that weekend. We were able to rent a boat and go out on... More

One of the best weekend get aways ever. Look forward to going back soon. This would be a great place for wedding, honeymoon, second honeymoon or couples get away. Also, lots of family friendly activities.

If you can afford it, Big Cedar (BC) is one of the most special places in existence. You feel as if you are in a wilderness wonderland designed by Ralph Lauren with absolutely no detail overlooked. My family has now made going to BC as an annual event, and I can honestly say from the moment we leave, I look... More

We enjoyed our stay at Big Cedar, the property and facilities are just gorgeous! Definitely don't miss staying in one of the main lodges and be sure to check out Top of the Rock too! The lodge and amenities are nice and be sure to enjoy the walk along the lakeside too!

We book a room on the top floor at the Falls Lodge every year and we are never disappointed. The room is beautifully appointed and clean. Lovely bathroom with jacuzzi and the top floor amenities include a wonderful balcony outside our French doors. Turn-down service includes their tasty signature cookies. In past years, we've gone into Branson for dinner and... More

We planned a weekend get away down here. It had good reviews and years ago drove threw the property and looked pretty. Looks good on outside and pictures that's the only time it looks good. We reserved a cabin, when we got to cabin it was freezing cold inside. We carried our stuff in to room and started to see... More
