Lots of activities including renting a pontoon boat for Table Rock lake, hiking trails, lazy river, horseback riding and more while never leaving the resort. There is a great Cabin/lLodge feeling. The shuttle service is very fast and great to have after a night of listening to "Clay Self" with the "Downstairs People" in the "Buzzard Bar". There is an... More

We have been coming to Big Cedar Wilderness for over a decade. When the resort was originally built, all of the cabins and lodges were comparable, if not better than the public side of Big Cedar. Unfortunately, as Bluegreen had completed their most recent remodels, they have made some mistakes and chosen much cheaper, less comfortable, less stylish furnishings. Bluegreen... More

My husband and I stayed in a studio at the Wilderness Club, with a fabulous view of the natural surroundings of the area. As it was Christmastime, everything was elaborately decked out and lit for the season, from grounds to trees throughout the property. The staff was absolutely professional, knowledgeable, and courteous, ready to attend to your every need. Shuttle... More
