Beautiful idealic setting. Friendly staff. Look forward to coming back someday. Wish more aspects of the resort had been open, though. Loved the cookie lady. Loved the minigolf. The warm pools were a hit with the kids. Carriage rides looked beautiful.

My family is here for our kid's spring break. The scenery is beautiful and the grounds are fantastic. They spent a fortune on the landscaping, but we have been very disappointed in their lack of available activities. We were told when booking the cabin that there was an endless supply of firewood, so we assumed bon fire's at night... but,... More

We stayed here to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. The accommodations were outstanding. The room was spacious. The bed was comfy. The view was spectacular. There is lots to do on-site. This is a very family friendly destination. Everyone we met was friendly and the staff was helpful.

I live in the area and have been to Big Cedar and Top of the Rock many times. I prefer to stay in one of the cabins and they are great. The resort is maintained in perfect condition and there are tons of activities, especially for kids. There is also Dogwood Canyon included close by that is beautiful-can walk, bike,... More

We took a short trip to Big Cedar to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday (as well as my birthday and our anniversay, which all fall the same week). Everything about our trip was wonderful. The room was one of the cleanest we've ever stayed in. It was immaculate!!! The spa and all the services we received there were top-notch. All... More

We have stayed at this resort before and while it is a nice resort it has become too expensive to stay at any longer. We are very disappointed that this resort has raised its rates. Also, this place needs get over itself. It is located in Branson, MO not Florida. In fact, it's much more inexpensive for us to stay... More

Big Cedar Lodge The good: Resort was beautiful. Most of the staff was nice. Bed was really comfortable and the fireplace was a plus. The bad: Expensive, your money doesn't get you much. I went here for my honeymoon. We had a good amount of money to spend on a location. We saw this place, and being an outdoorsman I... More

We have been going to Big Cedar for many years and I never get tired of the place !! Beautiful and so much to do right on the property. Christmas time is fabulous, wine tasting in Jan. or Feb. is a great time reuniting with old friends (guests and Staff) and Spring is breathtaking with all the flowers. Cabin or... More

If you want to get away to a beautiful, rustic, yet luxurious resort, go to The Big Cedar Lodge. It is pricey but you get what you pay for. Big comfortable beds are in spacious well decorated rooms. There is no such thing as a bad view. The grounds are well landscaped and well taken care of. You can ride... More

This is the third time I have visited the property. The weather was great for the first two days...warm enough to swim outside in the heated pool. Our family enjoys the free mini golf. The restaurants have great food.
