This was a great vacation! My husband, six year old and myself rented a cabin at Big Cedar for five days. We enjoyed taking part in so many activities: dive-in movies, scavenger hunt, jet skiing, kids adventure camp, miniature golf & lots of swimming! We brought our bikes with us and were able to bike through Dogwood Canyon. My little... More

My husband and I stayed in a one bedroom condo in lodge 2600. The decor was delightful with a deer head over the fireplace and a full kitchen. The dining table easily sat six, even though there were only two of us. Huge bathroom and washer/dryer in the room. A lovely balcony overlooked the mountains and lake. A short distance... More

Big Cedar is a great family resort with a lot to offer. The grounds are immaculate and worth of magazine photo shoots. The cabins are substantial, private and very well appointed. There are lots of activities that should easily accommodate all ages from grandchildren to grandparents. If you are adventurous try renting jet ski(s) from the resort marina to really... More

We have stayed in this particular cabin the last three times we have been to Big Cedar. There are major repairs that need to be done to this particular cabin. We informed them before of... More

We're delighted that you chose to stay at the Wilderness Club at Big Cedar! The Wilderness Club is a Bluegreen Resort with a separate Management Team from that of Big Cedar. However, I am very sorry to hear that the condition of Cabin 2003 is in need of some repairs. I have shared your concerns with the General Manager of... More

We were in the Valley View Lodge in multiple rooms for my extended family. We were a group of 13 in 4 different rooms with kids ages 2-9. My family had the room on the end with a kitchenette (with full stove/oven and microwave) and the balcony with an amazing view. It was also a connecting room with my parents... More
