Place was fantastic! We stayed the the cabins. Had a lakeside view, and could sit on the deck. The staff brought wood for the fireplace, cleaned our cabin and brought fresh towels and linens. It was private, yet we had the use of the resort, including the 3 pools and huge hot tub, the indoor grotto and spa,which is amazing!...

Windy hilly curvy Ozark entrance with Spectacular Views of TableRock Lake - Awesome property highlighting the natural Ozark's beauty! Our one room cabin was outfitted and decorated very nicely - comfortable and cozy! Large deck with grill would be great on a summer evening! Friendly and welcoming staff everywhere we were on property.

This was our first time at Big Cedar Lodge. The view from our room was amazing in every direction. Sleeping on down pillows, down mattress, down comforter made for a cozy night's rest. The indian museum at the Top of The Rock was breath taking,

I've had a five hour drive home to think about how I would review the "Luxury Resort,"Big Cedar Lodge. This trip ended in a huge disappointment. My husband and I made plans to check- in to the Big Cedar Lodge on Friday, February 17, 2017. We were to have a "standard room" located in the Valley View Lodge, for this...

My husband and I have visited Big Cedar several times during the off-season. The staff is friendly and the accommodations are amazing!! The weather during our February visit was warm and sunny. Branson is just up the highway and it never disappoints!! If you haven't tried Big Cedar, you're missing out!!

We usually stay at Big Cedar a couple times a year and as always we were not disappointed! We stayed 3 nights and pretty much stayed on the property the whole time. We enjoyed Clay all 3 nights in the Buzzard Bar, layed out at the Wilderness Club House (yes in February) and took advantage of the hot tub a...

We rented a cabin this time for our Valentine get away. I am now hooked on the cabins! The couples massage is a must do for couples- best service I've ever had. The Lodge's attention to EVERY detail is what makes it such a wonderful place. It is very clean, and every detail is thought out. The staff seem to...

We booked the Spa Cottage for my 50th birthday weekend. We had such a great time! The cottage is merely yards away from the spa. You have a bubble tub for two, a two person shower, wood burning fireplace and a hidden TV. This just barely begins to describe the cottage. It's first class all the way. Had such a...

Big Cedar Lodge is the best of the Ozarks in Southwest Missouri!! Big Cedar Lodge is an absolutely beautiful resort, comfortable cabins with real fireplaces and delicious food. We love the Buzzard Bar at the Devils' Pool and Clay is some of the best entertainment we have seen. The Sunday brunch at the Osage restaurant was wonderful and the service...
