Wilderness Club is a special place! We stayed in the James River Lodge section (2900) in a 1 bedroom Condo in early March. We were so surprised at how beautiful the condo was! We loved the lodge decor and all lodge themed decorative touches. We had requested a top floor as I had read that foot traffic could be heard... More

The area where this lodge is located is beautiful with views of Tablerock Lake. The room was nice and comfortable with a mini kitchen. The bed was large and there was a flat screen TV. The room could be better arranged and the bathtub was really small, but it was adequate. There is no housekeeping service, only replenished towels. There... More

We love coming to the WCBC. Buying into the timeshare was a great decision. We have been coming here twice a year for many years now. Each time there is something new that they have done to improve the already first class property. We have visited during each of the four seasons and there is plenty to do and see... More

Big Cedar Wilderness is by far the best resort in Bluegreen that our family has stayed at. It is always clean, have friendly helpful staff and tons of things to do all without ever having to leave the resort. It's far enough from home but yet close enough to go to several times a year. We try to come at... More

My family has been coming to Wilderness Club at Big Cedar every year for the last 10 years. We love it here. This was our first visit in the Spring and I will say that we enjoy the resort more in the summer when the weather is warmer, but all the pools were heated and there were plenty of things... More

We stayed two nights in early February 2015 in a two bedroom cabin. We were looking forward to a short winter retreat and were not disappointed. Mother nature cooperated with snow and chilly temperatures. We enjoyed building roaring wood fires in the fireplace and yummy dinners at Buzzards Bar. The only disappointment was breakfast at Devil's Pool. The pancakes tasted... More

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!!!
