We had our first stay at Big Cedar Wilderness Club this past weekend. We had a great time (despite the yucky weather). We had two rooms connected on the second floor (which is actually ground floor, level with the parking lot) in King's River Lodge. We had a room at the end so the master suite had corner window views... More

Big Cedar never lets us down. From Buzzard Bars great food and entertainment to one of the best workout facilities around, it made for a great Valentines Day weekend. We had a few things in the room that needed some attention that were quickly fixed within the hour.

If you are looking for rest and relaxation this is the place. We stayed four nights and enjoyed every second we were there! Indoor pool, hot tub, mini golf and restaurants all on property! Cookies were delivered every night right in time for a snack!!! Love, love, love this enchanting, rustic hideaway!!!

My husband and I just returned from a 3 day get-a-way at the Wilderness Club. As it was snowy few days and the grounds were beautiful! The staff did a wonderful job of clearing the roads & sidewalks. They even dug out our car when we were ready to leave the property. However, our car stayed park during our visit... More

A couple of small things might be an improvement. The bedroom bedside lighting was very poor if you want to read a book in bed. I guess not many of us read an actual book anymore, so maybe it is fine reading a tablet or e-reader. Maybe you could provide little portable "book lights" at the front desk for us... More

We've stayed many times at the hotel, the one bedroom lodge and a 2 bedroom cabin. We love coming to Big Cedar anytime of year. Plenty to do on site. In the Summer, we love to rent a boat at the marina and enjoy the clubhouse and lazy river. We like it so much, we've taken lots of friends and... More

Each accommodation has its own ambiance. Our last stay was in the Presidential Suite in January 2015. We were there for our anniversary. It was an... More

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
