Dear Valued Guest,

It has been a while since we’ve written and our team wanted to touch base with you for many reasons, but especially to let you know that we sincerely care about how you and your families are doing during these unprecedented times. Additionally, we want to thank you for the thoughts and prayers you sent our way when we needed it most. We received so many responses from you, and they meant the world to us.

Many of you have returned to Big Cedar since our last communication. You could have vacationed anywhere and we know that. We truly appreciate your loyalty.

We are also very pleased to share some of the exciting updates coming to Big Cedar:

  • We began construction on 20 cottages at Buffalo Ridge, conveniently located next to four of our “World Class Golf Courses”:  Buffalo Ridge, Ozarks National, Mountain Top, and, of course, Tiger Woods’ 18-hole Championship Course, Payne’s Valley, including the stunning 19th hole created by Johnny Morris, our founder. These cottages will be ready to welcome guests by Memorial Day, 2021.
  • We have cleared views and are preparing to begin construction on 25 cottages at Big Cedar. These additions will include a four-bedroom unit for hosting large families and gatherings. This will be a new product for us next year and we plan to have them available by September 1 if not sooner.
  • We are adding 15 additional glamping units at Camp Long Creek. These units have been so popular, we are adding a new two-bedroom product to this mix.
  • We will be opening our NEW “Angler’s Lodge” in Hollister, Missouri, on March 6, 2021, just in time for spring break. The renovation is moving right along and we can’t wait to share the finished product with you. This will offer wedding guests, leisure travelers, golfers and groups a value product while being close enough to enjoy some of Big Cedar’s amenities during their stay.

There are so many great things happening!

The resort is beautiful this time of year with all the Christmas lights, the hustle and bustle of kids making gingerbread houses, tractor light tours, and of course the all-encompassing Fun Mountain, for the kid in all of us!

It has been our team’s privilege to serve you this year.

In closing, I want to recognize how blessed we are to have such dedicated associates. From the support of my leadership team, to the 1,200 passionate individuals who strive, every day, to provide the best genuine Ozarks hospitality possible to you, our guests. And certainly, we are appreciative of our Founder, Johnny Morris, for his vision and support that continues to make Big Cedar Lodge the award-winning destination it is today.

Thank you again for your continued support, thoughts and prayers. And for choosing Big Cedar over all the other beautiful resorts around the country. But mostly, thank you for just being you, part of our extended family here at Big Cedar Lodge!

We hope to see you again soon and when we do...
