I am in the middle of a seven day stay at Roaring River Lodge at Big Cedar. This has been the most relaxing stay of the many resorts I have visited in 20 years. I am impressed by the tremendous staff - friendly, helpful and hard-working. The appearance of the resort, ease of transport and the many services aren't seen... More

We recently stayed in the Indian Creek lodge at Wilderness Club. We had a 2-bed/2-bath unit overlooking the pool/hot tub area. Our unit was beautifully yet comfortably decorated - lots of nice things but you totally felt like you could put your feet up and relax without hurting the furniture. There was a full kitchen completely furnished with dishes, pots,... More

The Big Cedar Wilderness Club is great. We go every year and if you go Memorial Weekend they have a nice fireworks display that Sunday night. The rooms have a great cabin feel and are nice and clean. Many pools and things to do all on site, with a shuttle to take you to those places. The lazy river is... More

We just had a 4 day stay during Spring Break. The staff was fantastic and we had a great time! I wish the weather would have been a little warmer so that we could really enjoy some of the outdoor activities and the gorgeous pools. The kids still had fun swimming, but even the indoor pool was way too cold... More

This place is a slice of heaven. Away from the main glitz and busy town of Branson right on the Arkansas-Missouri border. Quiet, breathtaking views, as close to nature as it gets without giving up the necessities. Clubhouse is awesome with kiddies pool and outdoor hot tub. Loved the small cove with the peddle boats, the walkways winding through the... More

Stayed in a two bedroom suite, was very spacious and had everything you would need. Lots to do and beautiful grounds. Did some geocaching with the family and friends while we were there, there were many right on the grounds. Checked out movies from the club house and loved the hot tea and coffee available too!

This is our most favorite place to stay. From the indoor pool for the kids, lounge with tea and coffee to the Buzzards bar where we all love to eat and watch the sunset. We had a third floor room with an amazing few.

My wife and I stayed here over a weekend and it was very relaxing. One thing I was very impressed with was the tram service offered. If you wanted to travel to any place in the resort a tram would pick you up. This kept us from getting lost and really cut down on traffic. Also in the first two... More
