Lovely location. Our balcony had a great view of Table Rock Lake, great at sunset and for watching the stars. Peaceful. Quiet. Shuttles are handy but this place is so lovely, we walked everywhere. My husband asked me to write down our room number so we will reserve the same room. Plenty of towels. Robes and cookies.

For our girls' weekend, we chose well. Big Cedar cabins are rustic and beautiful, yet fully modern. Ours had a full kitchen and barbecue oven. We were treated like princesses with a special cake and treats. Warm gingerbread cookies are delivered to all each evening. There is so much to do for kids and adults. We toured Top of the... More

We had a family trip here with friends and it was a great place. Definitely something for every member of the family to do and if you have a group, definitely get one of the cabins around the property. We did a Backyard Basket where they provide everything you need to cook out in your cabin and that was fun!... More

This was our 4th trip to Big Cedar. Wonderful visit as always. Top of the Rock is amazing. However, the shuttle doesn't go to TOTR so you have to drive the winding roads. I was sad as I was the DD. would really like to see the shuttle go to TOTR.

This place is full of fun things to do, or just escape and relax. We had a cabin on lake that was just perfect. Décor and location made us just want to stay in and enjoy, but managed to enjoy other activities also. This was our first time in area and can say enough good things about Big Cedar. Everyone,...

This resort is first class and well worth the trip! Unbelievable experience which is hard to explain in words. You have to experience for yourself. We stayed in one of the cabins which was very nice and relaxing. I have to say the staff no matter where you went were exceptional and very friendly. Food was fantastic at all the... More

This was my first trip to Big Cedar and it did not disappoint. From the moment we arrived we felt like the most important couple on the property. There is plenty to do just staying on property. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet at the Devils Pool restaurant so much we went again the next morning. The staff on property was... More

This place is great. We stayed in the Falls Lodge. The room was larger than my first apartment. The rooms are all decorated rustic but far from that comfort. The king size bed and pillows were very comfortable with a down comforter. We have a 3rd level room with a balcony with 2 rocking chairs where you could enjoy this... More

My husband and I stayed here for our 30th wedding anniversary and rented a Lakeside cabin. It was so beautiful, peaceful and quiet. The staff is so friendly and ready to assist you. We took a carriage ride around the property and then on to Top of the Rock for the ride through the caverns and then to dinner. The... More
