We really enjoyed our recent stay a Big Cedar. We had a Lakeside cabin for 2 nights and found everything in good condition. Have also stayed in the cottages and lodges. Really enjoy cabins and cottages best. Cottages are nice and close to everthing so walking around the resort is easy and enjoyable. We love to walk to breakfast at... More

By the time that we forded the second stream while working our way to check-in I knew that we were in a unique location. Big Cedar Lodge, owned by the Bass Pro Shop group, really places you in the most natural setting that you could find that is perhaps just a little bit staged. You will quickly find yourself unwinding... More

Everyone needs to go to the Big Cedar Lodge at least once. It is nestled in the woods and hills just south of Branson, Missouri on the shores of Table Rock Lake. You may stay in a lodge or a cabin. My wife and I stayed in Cabin 514 (The Hemmingway) on the lake side. We have never experienced a... More

Big Cedar Lodge is a hidden gem amongst the Ozark Mountains. This is truly one of the most stunning properties I've ever visited. I stayed at the Falls lodge which overlooks another lodge and has a decent view of the water from my balcony. Stepping outside onto my balcony first thing in the morning was lovely, taking in the scenery... More

I truly love this place and always look forward to returning. The "theming" is beyond compare, the staff are friendly, the rooms are clean and quiet, and the views are incredible! The restaurants were good too!! A person is never lacking for things to do: the marina, the stables, the pools, the walking trails, miniature golf, and a soon to... More

We love Big Cedar! Our favorite time has always been Christmas, with the beautiful lights, the extra special touches, and we bring our entire family for a holiday. Now, I'm not so sure that Summer didn't top those experiences, Three grandchildren and us two. We kayaked, paddled, and pontoon boated the lake. (Excellent pontoon boat, and it should be as... More

The customer service was awesome. From check in to check out and everything in between was a very enjoyable experience. I highly recommend big cedar to anyone staying in the Branson area. It is definitely the best place to stay in Branson.

I stayed twice last winter in the private cabins with family. Very comfortable all around, especially the beds. Love that they deliver fire wood right to your door! Beautiful grounds to walk around, even in winter. The first time we stayed we had Thanksgiving dinner at the Devil's Pool restaurant, which was incredible. The second time was late January and...

I went to the hotel for a conference and was amazed at how far off the road it seemed and yet was easily accessible to the highway. The staff was friendly and cordial. Accommodations were nice and the views were spectacular. The food was good and the meeting space was well set up.
