We spent almost a week with our daughter and her 8 year old twins. We rented a two bedroom, two bathroom modern cabin with kitchen, W/D, etc. It was great and reasonably priced! I would not buy a time share but renting one from owner is great. They share all facilities with Big Cedar Lodge so there are multiple pools... More

Purchased a timeshare rental from eBay for this stay. We stayed in Phoenix Lodge, 2300, top floor. All in all, both the condo and resort were beautiful. Noise was a slight issue. Balcony had no privacy. Lake views from our location were pretty much non-existent. Cleanliness was top notch. Better communication is needed regarding resort activities. For the cost, I... More

This year we decided we wanted a relaxing vacation instead of the hustle and bustle until you were completely worn down. Big Cedar delivered with views of the Table Rock Lake to the relaxing pools. We stayed in a 1 bedroom at the lodge and we loved the decor of the room. We had plenty of room for the 4... More

Your family will love this! We parked our vehicle in front of our unit and then never left the property until it was time to check-out. We stayed in the Indian Creek building and it was wonderful to have a private pool area just for that building. We enjoyed the free canoes, kayaks and mini-golf. The Lazy River was our... More

Just got home after spending 4 days at Big Cedar. It is summer so we expected lots of kids. But...the resort was overrun by unattended children. The pools are fabulous but 10 year old boys seemed to be in abundance. There is no lifeguard or any employees at the pool located at the condos of Wilderness club. Guess the parents... More

We are Bluegreen Owners and love the Big Cedar property. The rooms are spectacular. We always get a 2 bedroom combined unit. The abundance of pools keeps them from being overly crowded. I love the planned activities such as a "dive in movie" and campfire smores. We have not tried the resturants because we have always had our kids with... More

Manager Keith says its alright to drag your coolers and furniture out on the front walk and party all night. It's also okay to let your pre teenage boys have a run of the resort. They come back at 1130 at night and stay up for 2 more hours playing music and screaming. Security does nothing about it. Tough when... More

I have always loved Big Cedar Resort. It's one of the few places I would consider plunking down a few big bills per night for. I've stayed there four times over the years. For the price, I may be over it. Construction everywhere, peaceful, it is not. The charm is just not coming through any longer. Food is unreasonable,15.00 cheeseburgers,... More
