Top 10 Midwest Vacation Resorts: Big Cedar Lodge
Reminiscent of a historic mountain lodge deep within the Adirondacks, Big Cedar Lodge mixes Lake of the Ozarks landscapes and luxuriously rustic lodging into a perfect medley, making our No. 7 Midwest destinations pick your first-choice Ozarks’ premier wilderness resort.
It would be wrong to describe Big Cedar Lodge as anything other that a wilderness resort, but we want to make it clear that this in not your typical woodsy retreat. The three distinctly different lodges, cozy knotty pine cottage and beautifully-crafted log cabin all look as though they should be gracing the pages of Midwest Living Magazine. And the Top of The Rock Golf Course, a certified Audubon International Signature Sanctuary, is the first Par 3 course to bear Jack Nicklaus’ name.
Big Cedar Lodge is only minutes away from Dogwood Canyon Nature Park, featuring tumbling waterfalls and more than 29 hand-built stream crossings. But you don’t have to travel far to see natural Ozarks beauty. Just tour the grounds on the lodge’s walking trails showcasing eight onsite waterfalls.
