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...

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...

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...

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...

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!!!

A couple of small things might be an improvement. The bedroom bedside lighting was very poor if you want to read a book in bed. I guess not many of us read an actual book anymore, so maybe it is fine reading a tablet or e-reader. Maybe you could provide little portable "book lights" at the front desk for us...
