What a great place for family or couples get-a-way. Tim, the bartender for the Buzzard bar, is one-of-kind friendly professional and knows his way behind the bar. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely send others to Big Cedar Lodge.

We just visited the new addition to Big Cedar, the Top of the Rock area. Again Mr. Morris and his team of great visual and comfort staff have created a grand new site. Golf course, 3 restaurants, and beautiful chapel and grounds. I think there is a cave for wine dinners coming in the Fall.

It's so pretty and the kids loved it. The views are beautiful. It is pricey but a good experience. The pools aren't that great and be prepared to trek around a bit. I can say I can see where it would be relaxing. I would like to maybe rent a cabin next time.

My family loved Big Cedar! From putt putt golf to paddle boats this resort has it all. Our kids were never bored. Our condo was beautiful with an amazing view! We will now make this a yearly family vacation.

Big Cedar is close to Branson but still feels remote and secluded. It's a first class resort with top notch facilities and staff. My family stayed in the Falls Lodge and it was a great room - large and clean and decorated in an upscale rustic style. The view off the balcony was spectacular. I didn't do too much on... More

Well worth the drive is Big Cedar Lodge in the beautiful Ozark Mountains. From the main lodge suites to the small fishing cabins, Big Cedar does it right. Like a smaller version of Disneyland, the landscaping is manicured like live art. Layers upon layers of flowers and vibrant plants in the forefront of the heavily detailed architecture. Each building positioned... More

Three couples decided to leave New England and discover Missouri. We has the best vacation in spite of some bad weather. The resort offers everything. Great dining, a new golf course, boating, fishing, water activities, you name , they have it. Our cabin was perfect. Everything we needed. The service was top notch. Hope to return with our grandchildren.

This was our second stay at Big Cedar over the 4th of July. First visit was in 2011 after our daughter stayed at Kanakuk and we LOVED that experience. This one was a little different. First, BIg Cedar has amazing grounds. AMAZING. The place is beautiful and relaxing. Also, the fireworks show is amazing! This trip we stayed in a... More
