Although I am a "local" I still enjoy going to Big Cedar. They have amazing landscaping, fantastic architecture and vernacular decor. There are many activities to take advantage of....I love the restaurants and the gift shop. This is a favorite day trip for me. Any season. It is just something above and beyond the usual commercial tourist venue. My favorite...

We had a two bedroom cabin that was so cozy and comfortable. We had a great view of the lake from our deck. We enjoyed the shuttle service to and from the Buzzard Bar. We had great service there and enjoyed the singer Clay Self as our evening entertainment

My husband and I chose to splurge at the spa. WORTH the splurge! Take your swim suit and plan to go earlier than your appointment, to stay after or both! The relaxed atmosphere, cleanliness and friendly staff give the a feeling of extreme comfort. Loved the enclosed stonewall pool and ice room. If you're hungry, order room service. These folks...

The accommodation was also lovely. We were in one of the knotty pine cottages. They were...

They always wish...

I was totally blown away by the hospitality of the staff at Big Cedar Lodge. We went this weekend to celebrate my youngest son's 19th birthday. When we got to our cabin they had a birthday cake and card waiting for us!! I don't even remember telling them it was his birthday. The cabin was very comfortable. We asked my...

Nice resort with all of the wilderness feel due to all of the stuffed animals inside your condo. In room hot tub. The resort is about 15 minutes from downtown Branson. My wife and I went on a romantic weekend getaway I love all of the decorations but my wife thought that it was kind of masculine
