As always, they rocked it!!! Brought the kids here for little spring break getaway. First time staying at the cottages by the lake. Definitely a good call with the kids. Heated pool and hot tub within walking distance.

There is so much for families to do and to keep children occupied. With the construction nearing completion of an activities building - Uncle Bucks - there will be even more for...

We went to Big Cedar for a 2 day getaway. Our employer gave us a gift card to stay there for the 2nd year in a row. We had previously stayed in a honeymoon suite there which we loved. This year it wasn't available and they told us that their cottages we just as nice and so we agreed. The...

We drove out to Big Cedar lodge for lunch and to explore the area. The restaurant, Buzzard Bar, had an amazing pulled pork hamburger and awesome staff. The view is breathtaking. Nice place for a short hike and overlooks a part of the lake.

This is a great resort for families or couples. There are a lot of things to do on site and Branson is so close. The lake is huge and offers many options. There is a time share that is also associated with the resort - Blue Green. The restaurants offer a great variety of venue types and meal choices.

The prices aren't what you would expect from a resort in Ridgedale, Missouri, but the resort itself is well kept, clean, and worth almost every penny. Buzzards Bar is a fun stop, and the spa has great staff if you can spare the extra money after the pricey rooms. The old fishing cabins were the way to go here...wish they...
