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.

My family loved Big Cedar! There is so much to see and do right at the resort! The lake is gorgeous! The resort offers so many activities for free! We did not book long enough to enjoy all of it! We will go back soon!

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

My husband, myself and (20)yr old son stayed here for 3 days. We loved it! We stayed in Falls Lodge which by far has the best view. I never knew Big Cedar was this BIG. There are so many different lodging opportunities and the website does not do it justice. Other than all the different lodges and cottages on the... More

I was floored by all the amenities, grounds and staff at Big Cedar. Once you get over the initial awe of the beauty of the location and buildings then you will be amazed at the attitudes of the staff. Everyone was extremely professional, courteous, helpful and attentive. It was obvious they were well trained before working with their guests. This... More

My husband and I wanted to take a romantic getaway but still enjoy the lake life over the 4th of July weekend. Several people recommended Big Cedar and we were not disappointed! We rented the one bedroom cabin and it was beautiful. We were welcomed with a cake and champagne flutes to make our celebration really special. We made the... More

This is a WONDERFUL venue. For families with kids is just perfect. A few small issues that kept it from being a perfect stay. 1. No soap dishes in cabins. Sounds like a small detail...it is...but easy to fix. We had that darn soap stuff all over the vanity for the entire stay. Ended up using coasters..eh..no big deal. 2.... More
