We recently completed our sixth atay at Big Cedar over a period of several years. Our first three trips we enjoyed staying on the top floor of the Springview Lodge. It was close to dining, gift shop and spa and had a cozy gas fireplace, great view and we could hear the nearby waterfall. Our last three visits we have... More

Enjoyed our stay. Will be back. The room was clean, plenty of amenities and places to visit! Lived every minute of it. I did not hear of any traffic to keep me awake. Clean bathroom, turn-down service and the jacuzzi tub was super nice! View of the mountains were breathtaking. Restaurants also had delicious food. There is a very large... More

I was here for a small business meeting; and, unfortunately a short one because the setting, the facilities and the staff are amazing. It was an exceptional experience from arrival to departure. I stayed in a cabin that was appointed with amenities to perfection -- comfortable bed, fireplace, walk-in shower, kitchen, rustic furniture, and a walk-shower. What an oasis! My... More

We just got back from Big Cedar Lodge where my wife and I celebrated our 34th anniversary. From the moment we walked into our cabin and saw the card and cake, compliments of Big Cedar, to the minute we left... things could not have been any better. The log cabin was fantastic with it's styling, decor, and amenities. We had... More

We have stayed at Big Cedar 3 times by the end of summer in 3 different sections. This resort is huge, impressive views of Big Cedar Hollow Lake, 15 minutes away from Branson in the middle of the Ozarks. Surrounded by nature in very comfortable facilities, most of them accessible by car and shuttle, this place offers lots of fun... More

Absolutely beautiful countryside location, quiet and scenic. Rustically located 15 minutes south of Branson, so there are so many activities to choose. This is my FAVORITE place to stay when visiting Branson and Branson is full of shows and Americana beyond anywhere else I have seen; all of the Ozarks are centered around a country-type feel. The holiday season is... More

Very nice quiet place! The grounds were beautiful. Right on the lake! Everyone we meet was friendly. The rooms very clean and nice. Only downside is that we stayed on the bottom floor and you could here the ppl above stomping the floor late at night. But on a positive note you get complimentary cookies every afternoon.

Big Cedar and Top of the Rock are the without question the best getaway you can plan. Quality set in nature. Kind people run this business. Fabulous dining. Beautiful. Lots to do or not do. Spas, golf, horse, fishing, boating, fine dining. All in quality setting.

Okay, first, we've decided we're not resort people. I want to state that right up front. Big Cedar did not have much to do in November that interested us. Before we went, on a trial basis as part of a Blue-Green Vacations promo, we looked at the activities and then decided we'd head to the nearby state parks for hiking... More
