I've been to Big Cedar before with just the wife and I, but this last trip was for the kids and to celebrate the oldest birthday. The resort itself is the perfect blend of natural surroundings and the creature comforts one would need when on vacation. During previous visits, we've enjoyed the spa services the massive gift shop primarly.
However, during this last trip we included the kids and got to enjoy some of the other amenities they have for the younger crowd: minature golf, carriage rides, game room etc...from the moment we entered the property with the drive thru brook and waterfall, which was received with a rousing ear piercing scream from the kids as they enjoyed the view overlooking the lake at the entrance...all the way to the actual cabin we stayed. The fun never stopped...
A couple of addt'l notes, when we booked the stay, we mentioned it was for a kids birthday, but didn't request any addt'l items added and such. When we arrived to the cabin, there was a birthday cake made out to my daughter with her name...we literally had no idea that was going to be there...just a small example of the top notch service they provide and how they really listen to the guests to provide one of the most fulfilling stays you can expect. Additionally, you HAVE TO do the tram ride at their sister "property" Dogwood Canyon Park...amazing, beautiful and downright fun. Watch out for the ox and such that will lick your hand if you let them!
