We love this resort more with every visit! Clay Self at the Buzzard Bar is a must see, as well as Dogwood Canyon and Top of the Rock. The grounds are stunning, the food is very good, and every time we come there is something new to experience. We are already looking forward to our next visit!

All great experiences begin and end with customer service so a particular shout out to Tim, Hailie and Craig but also the several others in the House Keeping, Fitness Centers, Restaurant and Answering services and onsite technical assistance for...

If you have never been to Big Cedar, stop now and go look at their website. Year round the grounds are blooming with beautiful landscaping. There are water falls running over the road like you were on a small rock road all to yourself. Endless activities are available and scheduled events daily. It is a place for couples because it...

We have traveled to many nice resorts all over the country and Big Cedar Lodge is hard to beat. There is so much to do even in bad weather. Boating, golfing, fishing, a luxurious spa, fitness center and pools. We loved Top of the Rock, the Osage Restaurant, museum, Buffalo bar and the touching sunset bag pipe, canon ceremony. Service...

First and foremost---We spent the weekend at Big Cedar and we were overwhelmed with the incredible hospitality and kindness of every single staff person we encountered during our stay. Also, the property and entire surrounding grounds were gorgeous and pristine. Not a weed to be found anywhere. The attention to detail with all the décor is top notch. Ate several...

Big Cedar was a nice place, they own a timeshare with BlueGreen. The resort is rather hilly, so Shuttles are provided s a free service. The restaurants on site were good and there were several gluten free options available. We ate offsite for lunch one day at Dana's in Branson and it was very good, too. They have Gluten Free...

Nestled around Table Rock Lake in southwest Missouri this is a great spot for golfers, fisherman, or couples wanting to get away. Convenient to Branson MO shopping and entertainment 10 miles north, also the flagship Bass Pro Shop. Lots of hiking and water sports as well.

We enjoyed our time at Big Cedar Lodge, the spa was fabulous, dining at Top of the Rock was wonderful. The details that I didn't like were not having a restaurant or bar in our Lodge, having to drive 15 minutes to get to the best restaurants on the property and some overall wear and tear around the rooms and...

We had a studio cabin near the Turtle Pond. It was absolutely beautiful. The surrounds are all about preserving nature, so beautiful & so peaceful. The cabin is decorated like a rustic cabin...only with all of the modern amenities...even homemade cookies delivered every night! We had a golf package to golf at Top of the Rock....an unbelievable experience as well...

We stayed at the Lodge on the weekend of the Legends of Golf tournament at Top of the Rock. We had a great time at the Lodge and at the tournament despite the cold, rainy weather on Friday and Saturday. Getting to the Lodge can be a little confusing; but just take your time on the winding road and enjoy...
