My wife told me we were going to Brandson for her family vacation and we were saying in a cabin. Based upon her description, I had no exceptions. When I drove on to the grounds I fell in love. It was beautiful. I loved the scenery and the grounds. My 5 and 6 year old sons felt the same as... More

The good: First, this is a very beautiful, unique, mostly-newer property. The landscaping is really good. The views are great, the "Falls Lodge" rooms were very nice. Lots of activities for the whole family and many of them come included with the room. The staff were *all* friendly and helpful and warm. The bad: The on-property restaurants were fine for... More

The Big Cedar Lodge is excellent, the facility, the staff, and the location all exceeded expectations. We stayed in a one bedroom cabin and the way the cabin sat in the woods it was like there was no one around us. From the time you check in to the time you leave you are always well taken care of. The... More

My husband and I spent 3 days at Big Cedar in one of their cabins for couples. It completely exceeded my expectations--beautifully furnished with a gorgeous bed, brand new upgraded kitchenette, spacious living area and new, upgraded bathroom (including an awesome jetted tub!). I did not want to leave the cabin. We did, however, and enjoyed the free kayaks and... More

Big Cedar has a lot character, activities and great scenery. The resort was larger than expected. My crew put in quite a bit of walking but the resort provides complementary shuttles. The accommodations were charming although somewhat dated. Next time we will probably book earlier for more options. There is one main restaurant on the property with a family friendly... More

What a great place for family or couples get-a-way. Tim, the bartender for the Buzzard bar, is one-of-kind friendly professional and knows his way behind the bar. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely send others to Big Cedar Lodge.

We just visited the new addition to Big Cedar, the Top of the Rock area. Again Mr. Morris and his team of great visual and comfort staff have created a grand new site. Golf course, 3 restaurants, and beautiful chapel and grounds. I think there is a cave for wine dinners coming in the Fall.

It's so pretty and the kids loved it. The views are beautiful. It is pricey but a good experience. The pools aren't that great and be prepared to trek around a bit. I can say I can see where it would be relaxing. I would like to maybe rent a cabin next time.

My family loved Big Cedar! From putt putt golf to paddle boats this resort has it all. Our kids were never bored. Our condo was beautiful with an amazing view! We will now make this a yearly family vacation.

Big Cedar is close to Branson but still feels remote and secluded. It's a first class resort with top notch facilities and staff. My family stayed in the Falls Lodge and it was a great room - large and clean and decorated in an upscale rustic style. The view off the balcony was spectacular. I didn't do too much on... More
