“First Family Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2009

After looking online for a place to stay in Branson we started to look outside the city and found a different resort and after reading the reviews on here we checked the reference from one of the reviews and looked online for it. From just the pictures I knew I wanted to come here. After just a few emails with the owners (which was just general questions that we had and they were very friendly and helpful.) we set up our week of fun. With this being our first family trip and our second trip to Branson for my hubby and me it was nice to find a place that was quite and that we wouldn't bother anyone else with the 15 month old we have. After driving from St. Louis, Mo we found the resort and it was just like the pictures on the website. We stayed in the one bedroom with the queen size bed and futon. The kitchen is fully loaded with everything that you will need ( minus the food of course) and the room has everything that you would want. Fully stocked for everything that you would need and also they will give you new towels everyday if you wanted. And can do your laundry, for a price, we didn't do that but it was nice to know that it could be done. My hubby went onto the docks every night and one day the owner Scott was there working on it to make sure that it was even better than what it was. If you ever needed him or his wife ( Kathy) they were always there and just walk out the door to your cabin and you could pretty much just yell and they could hear you. The covered tables and bbq is set up so nice and anyone can use it. The pool was being opened when we were leaving but it was very nice and set up great for the sun and play ( they had toys there already) the basketball area was just redone and easy to get to along with the playground. The mini golf was being redone when we were there and they are adding more to it, so the next time we go it is on. I would recommend Cedar wood to everyone and have been from the time we got there to even now. GO AS SOON AS YOU CAN AND HAVE AS MUCH FUN AS YOU CAN!

Somewhat older resort that is very clean, well kept, nice cedar cabin furnishings. Good location. Owners Scott and Kathy are the best. If you want 5 star, high end resort, maybe this is not your place, but if you want a nice clean relaxing cabin, at a reasonable price, with very nice owners, then this is your place.

We spent a week at the Cedar Wood Resort. The owners (Kathy and Scott) are terrific people. The cabins are nice sized and very clean. The dock is one of the cleanest I've seen and includes video security. They both work extremely hard to make your stay enjoyable.

Scott was there to meet us almost every time we came off of the lake. Our teenage boys enjoyed swimming off of the dock, riding the lake paddle trike as well as swimming in the pool.

The cabins are extremely affordable and just a short walk above the lake / docking area. We were comfortable, had everything we needed and saved a ton of money.

Kimberling City is just a short drive from Branson and Silver Dollar City. Most everything you need, is within about 7 miles of the resort. The resort is hidden, on the lake side of a residential area. We enjoyed using the charcoal grill for a change of pace. The fireflies lit up the evening skies as we sat rocking on the front porch.

It's not often you find folks who are helpful, friendly, trusting AND accomodating. This small resort is a well hidden gem.

We will be returning to the Branson area and when we do, we'll be staying at the Cedar Wood Resort.
