Beautifully landscaped property with unique surprises throughout. The views of Tablerock Lake are breathtaking! Comfortable, romantic rooms, excellent food in all restaurants on site. We also enjoyed boat ride on Tablerock Lake and hiking!

Some of the most beautiful grounds I have ever stayed on. Big Cedar Lodge has it all. Our lodge felt like home. They definitely make you feel at home. Comfy beds, big/clean bathrooms and a great kitchen area. I felt very welcomed when we first arrived. The staff was very accomodating and friendly. We had a lovely view from our... More

We stayed one night in a two bedroom cabin and one night in the lodge. Both were gorgeous - every modern convenience yet with a cozy, glamour-wilderness vibe. We especially enjoyed having drinks and snacks on the balconies. The pools were very nice as well. There is one with a lazy river and slide, and plenty of hot tubs and... More

Everything was PERFECT except for our room in the Valley View Lodge - if you can stay elsewhere on the grounds I would recommend it. The level of service at BCL is outstanding and the food was great everywhere we went. We loved Top of the Rock so much, we went back three nights in a row.

Our family is very active with 3 boys- ages 13,11 and 9. We stayed in a cabin for 7 nights and were never bored once. So many amazing activities, great kids menu and areas to explore on the property. This resort and the friendliness and hospitality of the staff along with the variety of things to do far exceeded our... More

Our family recently returned from a 6 night stay in the Waylon Jennings cabin at Big Cedar Lodge in Ridgedale, Mo with our family of 7. The cabin had two bedrooms plus a loft, and a convertible sofa, along with two bathrooms. It was a perfect fit for our family outing. Big Cedar offers numerous activities for all ages. We... More

I'd read about the place then got rave reviews from my friends...couldn't be more pleased. We'd planned to stay for three days with a visit to Branson each day, but after seeing and experiencing Big Cedar we only went to Branson for part of a day....too much to do, see, and experience at BC. Yes, pricey, but I'd give it... More

Rusitc elegance. Nice place for a romantic getaway with plenty of activities without having to go anywhere else. The restaurants where good, friendly staff. The swimming pools where clean and well maintained. If you just want to stay in your room or cabin or if you want the night life it's a great place to vacation.

This was our 1st trip to Big Cedar Lodge but certainly not our last. All staff members were extremely hospitable and appeared to enjoy visiting with us. I would highly recommend this vacation spot to others as there's something to do for everyone!
