Lovely resort property nestled deep within the Ozark mountains -- you can kick back or access loads of activities and is close to Branson. We were greeted upon arrival with an anniversary card & cake. We visited in the middle of the week to avoid a busy weekend crowd. Lovely grounds are well maintained.

My husband and I visited Big Cedar for the first time and we were extremely impressed with the accommodations and staff. We stayed in one of the deluxe cabins and loved the solitude that was offered in this venue. The shuttle service that was offered worked great. The grounds are well kept and beautiful. We ate at two of the... More

My husband and I just took a trip to Big Cedar Lodge to celebrate our 30th anniversary. From the moment we arrived everything was perfect. We had not even gotten in the room yet and an associate arrived with an anniversary card and cake. The grounds are beautiful and the staff is so considerate. From the daily activities to the... More

We stayed in a Valley View double queen room. It was very clean and the beds were so nice and comfortable. Room had a refrigerator. We also used a rollaway bed and there was still plenty of room in the room so I feel like they are a little larger than your average hotel room. And the grounds are spectacular!... More

This is like a little slice of paradise in Missouri. We stayed in one of the value rooms in the Spring View lodge and it was so cozy and warm, but still very roomy. It was spotlessly clean and very convenient to the Devil's Pool Restaurant, which had great food, fabulous service and a wonderful rustic atmosphere. We were only... More

If you are in need of a family getaway I highly recommend Big Cedar Lodge. The views, history and comfort was excellent. My husband said his favorite part was drinking a beer in the caves on Top of the Rock lol. Top of the Rock was an amazing site to see. We enjoyed a nice meal at Arnie's Barn. The... More

We loved the facility and stayed in one of the Knotty Pine cabins the first two nights. The second night we were there, we discovered first one bee and then another bee in the cabin. We killed both of them and did not know how they were getting in. A short time later, a 3rd been stung my husband while... More

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
