We stayed at this lodge as a treat during our vacation, the hotel clerk was so helpful, we thought ,we're in for a nice treat. That was where it ended, we had room 109, ground floor, at 11:30 a bunch of rowdy guest checked in above us and an instant a party started, they were making so much noise and... More

We stayed in a first floor Standard Double Queen Room in the Valley View Lodge. It was a standard sized hotel room, although having a large window between the sleeping area and the bathroom was a bit odd (they covered it with a curtain). The biggest negative to the room was that we could hear every single step in the... More

We have stayed there several times and as always the rooms are clean,property, everything just fine. The only problem we had was the best restaurants were closed to the general public. My money is as green as anyone else. I really could care less about the famous golfers.

We stayed in a one-bedroom cabin on the lake-side for a Saturday night in early April. Numerous redbud trees were blooming on the resort grounds as were a number of daffodils and tulips. We enjoyed the several waterfalls around the property and the good views from several spots. There are nice paved walking trails around the property, although they could... More

This was our 9th trip to Big Cedar Lodge. It is Very Special and thanks to Johnny Morris for the 10 year redo of the now "Over" The Top of the Rock. Awesome in a "legacy" sense. Rivals any Vegas facility in extravagance and gives you the feel of a Hearst Castle memory. If the food and food service ever... More

We booked a week here to ride the ozarks on our motorcycles. It rained all but one day, which grounded us for the most part. They have a 24 hour shuttle service to tote you around the very spread out grounds....EXCEPT to The Top Of The Rock. This was WAY beyond disappointing since it was NOT with in walking distance,...

A true family resort with something for everyone. Horseback riding, swimming in your pick of many pools, activities, restaurants, live music, cookies delivered to your room daily, great HAPPY staff, Top of the Rock, and Dogwood Canyon near by and Branson is only a few miles away. A new Spa opened this year on the property. Fishing, boating, and cruises... More

The management went above and beyond to salvage what could of been a bad experience. My husband was stung by a red wasp inside our unit within the first 10 minutes of our stay. After moving us to two different units that did not meet our needs, the management went to work. We received an upgrade at no charge and... More

My husband attends business conferences at Big Cedar and felt it was a place I would enjoy. We stayed in the Falls Lodge with a balcony view of the lake. The view would have been better from the 3rd floor. We ate breakfast at Devil's Pool restaurant and they provide an excellent buffet or you have the option of ordering... More
