Great place to relax and get away. Lots to do boating, swimming, golf, horseback riding or just doing nothing. Quiet and serene. Great food at the Devil’s Pool Restaurant. Stayed in a studio at the Falls waterfall just outside our room with a great little balcony to just sit and enjoyed. Will definitely be back.

We spent the day here paddle boating, swimming and fishing and then went to their evening picnic and fireworks. The grandkids had an amazing time. This is a wonderful resort and I highly recommend it to any family.

Our favorite resort. We stay at the Falls Lodge which has spacious rooms and balconys overlooking the beautiful grounds of the resort and Tablerock Lake. The resort is spread out over a hillside adjoining the lake. Its a nice walk to restaurants, pools, the spa, an ice cream shop and more. Its a bit of a hike back to our room. If we don't feel like the walk, the lodge has a small bus service that is constantly available and efficient. We've also enjoyed the nearby Top of the Rock which is a golf complex that includes two restaurants. Another lodge owned feature is Dogwood Canyon. Its out in the Ozark hills about 10 miles from the lodge. We enjoyed a horse drawn wagon tour and a nice lunch in the canyon's restaurant. Everything about Big Cedar and its adjoining properties is first rate: the beautiful scenery, top not accomodations, exccellent service, good food, adventure. We love the place.

Seriously every detail of this place has been well thought out. Even the signage is beautiful! We stayed in a one bedroom cabin with a loft and it was beautiful. Has a little kitchenette, a huge free-standing bathtub, and a balcony deck. The property is spectacular in every way.
