I've been coming to Big Cedar for about 15 years. It just keeps getting better and better. Now that Top of the Rock has reopened it's in a league of its own among resorts. The staff and amenities are incredible.

EVERY aspect of this resort is perfect: quiet beautifully appointed cabins, attentive service, wonderfully prepared food, gorgeous grounds. If staying with children, there are more activities to engage in than you will have days to spend. If a couple wanting privacy and quiet, comfortable beautifully appointed cabins provide that. This is the only place to stay if you're considering a... More

This is truly a destination. My family and I were overwhelmed by the pristine grounds. We were engulfed in the relaxed atmosphere. Big Cedar offers numerous options for family entertainment and a convenient shuttle service. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer.

Although I'm not fond of animals mounted on the walls, everything else was superb in the cabins at Big Cedar. The quality of service was superb. The grounds crew and gardeners deserves a huge congratulations for keeping everything clean and gorgeous. The plethora of flora was so amazing. I wish each plant had a label so I would have known...

My wife and I just spent the weekend at Big Cedar. The lodge room was very sad, like a very cheap motel! Way overpriced!!!!!! The service was subpar!!!! The restaurants were average or below. The grounds and landscape were very nice!! For us just a lot of hype , overrated, and overpriced!!!!!!

We just resturned from our stay at BIg Cedar Lodge. Our stay was in one of the two bedroom cabins at Big Cedar. Cabin 545. We arrived on Wednesday June 24th and departed Sunday June 28th. We shared the cabin with another family to help decrease the cost. Arrival was great and we were able to check in around 3pm.... More

We enjoyed a cabin at the Wilderness Club at Big Cedar for a week and it was a great experience. Our teenage son and his friend really like the freedom to be able to take the shuttles around the property and the shuttles were very quick and the drivers friendly. The entire staff throughout the resort were very professional and... More

My new husband and I stayed at Big Cedar for part of our honeymoon in the fall of 2014 and had a wonderful experience. Our cabin was beautiful, well appointed, with an amazing bed and whirlpool bath. The abundance of firewood was much appreciated as we spent a great deal of time at our cabin, unwinding and enjoying the beautiful... More

Quite a place. Most beautiful setting. We attended a Time share meeting at Big Cedar lodge for our stay there. We spent 3 days and 2 nights. They have just about everything you need to enjoy the outdoors. We went jet skiing the table rock cave tour which was breath taking. Rain a lot of the time we were there.... More

My husband suggested Big Cedar when I asked were we could take our two six-year-old granddaughters for a special weekend. It was perfect. Although there's also much to see and do (so I'm told) in Branson, the resort itself was too lovely to leave since we were only there for two nights. The weather was unseasonably cool and rainy, but... More
