Worth the Stay!
Ours was an anniversary visit to Big Cedar Lodge. It was our first visit and did not know what to expect. The setting of the lodge was spectacular. If one is up to a good stretch of the legs, activities and restaurants are walkable. The Top of the Rock was fantastic, do take the car, it is a short beautiful drive. The room was clean, well supplied. Every staff member, we encountered, was friendly and helpful. Our next visit will be even better than our first.

Fabulous Getaway!
What a fabulous spot! As a family of 5, we had more than enough room (family room, kitchen, balcony, 2 bedrooms & 2 baths)to spread out & really enjoy our stay!! BCL is beautiful & a true treasure, away from the hustle & tourist trap, aka Branson. Thank you for sharing your spot with us, we will be back!!

Beautiful, Cozy, & Accommodating!
An excellent experience. We arrived tired and late with a horse trailer (empty). They had special parking for our trailer and great shuttle service. Security escorted us to our parking spot (with the trailer) and they were wonderful! The accommodations were fantastic! Although we were only scheduled for one night, we will be making this a vacation destination in the near future. Very impressed!
