Mini Getaway at Big Cedar Lodge


Week after week we are stuck in our same ole’ routines. Wake up, work, dinner, sleep, repeat. Ok…there is a little more laughter and food in that routine ­čÖé , but you get the picture. We just don’t hardly get to relax and enjoy life outside of work┬ámid-week. Can you relate? Well grab yourself a fuzzy blanket and a cup of coffee because I am sharing our mini mid-week getaway with you right now!

Picture this, its early morning, you open the drapes to a beautiful foggy view of the Fall foliage overlooking a lake. You grab your warm cup of coffee and step out on the balcony to take in the crisp morning air. Room service delivers a warm cinnamon roll and you eat your breakfast in a rocking chair while curled up in a fuzzy blanket on the balcony.  Do you feel relaxed yet? Ahhhh.


We spent a few days working at the Big Cedar Lodge in Missouri and it was refreshing to say the least. This little piece of the South is too close not to visit more often!

The views are spectacular, the rooms are cozy and the entire lodge is beautiful! We arrived at the lodge and it was like a southern paradise. My favorite part was that we had gotten there just in time to see the beginnings of their Christmas decor setup. Talk about extravagant and stunning.


Take a peek at the place!

This is the beautiful lobby of our side of the lodge. It was decked out top to bottom with Christmas decor. If only that tree would fit inside my house!!

Here is our cozy little room with an amazing view, big drapes, comfy bed and a Jacuzzi tub. Oh, an I can’t forget to mention that lodge decor.

One of my favorite parts about traveling is room service. There is just something about it! I ordered the cutest little homemade cinnamon rolls to my room. Mmmm!


Now the part I know you are dying to see – the views! This first view was taken from the balcony of our room around 7:30 am.



This next one is from our dinner restaurant at the Top of the Rock.


The lodge also has beautiful chapels available for weddings. I was able to capture a photo of this one in both mid-day and at sunset. It was just stunning.
