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...

There are numerous jacuzzis on the property. Would you like to know how many are open right now? ONE!😡 The one that is open is located at the clubhouse....you know, the shallow, small one....where all the children go. If you go to Colorado - where they have serious winters, you can go into a jacuzzi during a blizzard. Not here...the...

First off, I have to disclose I have never stayed here. We stopped by after we went to Top of the Rock and Arnies Barn to see it since we have never stayed or seen this place. Our intent was to have coffee at the coffee house but that was closed. We went inside the gift shop to ask about...

We had a great trip to Big Cedar! Because it was January, the resort was very quiet and relaxing. We hiked throughout the property and enjoyed great meals! I highly recommend Big Cedar - and Branson! - in January! It's our favorite way to unwind in the winter.

The 2 bedroom cabin was awesome, unlimited fire wood for the fire place, full kitchen and 2 full baths. The cookie lady is awesome fresh cookies every night brought to your door. The free gift basket is really nice with all the popcorn, cookies, ect. Wood definitely recommend. We rented movies all weekend and just chilled.

Plan on at least a three night stay. Whether you like to golf, shop, fish, or dine this is the place to be. If you like to just take in nature at it best you will love Big Cedar and Top of the Rock. Miles and miles of hiking and bicycling trails. We have visited during all four seasons and...

First of all, we didn't know what to expect when we got here. Yes, the pictures looked great. It is in league with Bass Pro Shop. OK. Oh. My. Gosh. We couldn't have asked for a better family trip! And we stayed in a tiny room (the hotel style rooms). It didn't matter b/c we were never there anyway! Even...

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...
