My husband and I have been to Big Cedar a few times now. We have been in the Summer and Winter. It is a beautiful place. You don't even have to leave the property. There is so much to do we haven't been able to do everything in one trip. It is a perfect family vacation spot.

We have been celebrating our wedding anniversary each year at Big Cedar for quite some time now, and it has proven to be a fairy tale getaway for us each and every time. We enjoy staying in their private lake-side log cabins although their lodges look welcoming and inviting. A complimentary basket of goodies and assorted soft drinks and water... More

We have an annual trip to Big Cedar for our anniversary weekend. We have never been disappointed. The rooms are excellent and we have a complimentary cake awaiting us. Any requests to staff receives a prompt response and follow up to ensure resolutions. The cabins are well featured and include free WIFI. I recommend

Big Cedar is enjoyable in the summer with the various pools and the beach area. Our teenage boys had fun swimming in the lake at the beach. Free mini golf and fun activities around the resort. Big Cedar is also beautiful in the fall. Late October was perfect. Quiet and less activities, but peaceful and fun to walk around. Bonfires... More

We have started a tradition of celebrating our anniversary each year (in January) at Big Cedar. It has always been great but this year we were able to get a cabin. Cabins are the way to go. They are hard to get but well worth it. Great view, cool cabin, great wood burning fireplace, even free snacks. Well worth the... More

We wanted a weekend away where we could just relax and do as much or as little as we wanted. This was perfect for us. Since it was cold and snowy a lot of things were not available,,,,like outside pools and boating....but we enjoy a restaurant and bar and spent the rest of our time walking the grounds and relaxing...

My husband and I have been coming to Big Cedar for 20 years. We love everything about the experience. The staff is beyond compare. We have always stayed in a cabin and it is like nothing you will find anywhere else. The quality, cleanliness, helpful and friendly people are wonderful. We come in the winter for an "after Christmas" get... More

We stayed in a log cabin with crackling fireplace and just enjoyed relaxing. Then we visited the Devil's Pool restaurant. Rainbow Trout is excellent. The Buzzard Bar entertainment is always fun with Clay performing his comedy and music. Next evening we enjoyed the Osage restaurant. Gorgeous place. Spectacular scenic views and the museum relics are fascinating.
