Having lived in Missouri for a long time, we had of course heard about Big Cedar- and decided to finally go and experience it for ourselves. The experience lived up to all the great things we had heard about it- almost. The faculties and grounds are immaculate, the staff friendly,, the room comfortable , cozy and romantic - we absolutely recommend Big Cedar . So then, why not a 10? We had a very difficult time navigating the property. Our room was only a short distance from the registration building, yet it took us 15 of driving around to finally find the room. And that is only one example, we found it difficult to find any of the attractions on property. The signage on the entire property, to include Top of the Rock is very poor. While expecting prices to be high, the pricing for drinks, food and activities was priced as though we were in San Francisco or Montreal. Again, the experience was very good - we give Big C two thumbs up.

Lovely area, Fall's Lodge room very nice and comfortable with ample entertainment. Though the concierges were very attentive and approachable, we had great difficulty navigating the area. Perhaps better road signs and maps would be helpful for guests who are unfamiliar with the lay out of the resort...??

Amazing experience at a beautiful property. Went for a date night with my boyfriend, and everything from the activities to the dining and atmosphere were top notch! We took my kids to play and bowl at fun mountain earlier in the afternoon, and then went to Top of the Rock for cocktails and dinner. Thanks for a great experience!

Were traveling cross country for Pinehurst golf and The Big Cedar Lodge was a great stop. Great food at Top of the Rock. Superb golf at Ozarks National. Great service. Cheaper room was too small so we upgraded, although it was expensive.

Big Cedar exceeded my expectations. We stayed with my family of five in a one room cabin and could not have had a better time. From the incredibly comfortable bed, pools, delicious food and drink, we can’t wait to return. My kid’s were obsessed with the singing pumpkins at the nightly “Cedarfest”
