Resort Offers Unique Destination Conference Experience
Posted June 25, 2009
Branson, Missouri-June 25, 2009-- Big Cedar Lodge is a grand wilderness resort, reminiscent of lavish, turn-of-the-century Adirondack hunting lodges, but with all the modern conveniences. The resort, featured on The Travel Channel and in Southern Living Magazine, sits on more than 800 acres on the shoreline of Table Rock Lake in the pristine Ozarks Mountains just 10 miles south of Branson, Missouri. Big Cedar features 246 guest rooms and private log cabins, a marina, stables, gourmet dining, outdoor adventures and much more.

"This is the perfect place for companies and organizations who want a unique "destination conference" experience and being located in the middle of America's Heartland, makes it a short drive from many major cities", stated General Manager Debbie Bennett. "It is also easily accessible through Branson Regional Airport, Springfield-Branson National Airport, and Boone County Municipal Airport in nearby Harrison, Arkansas".

The state-of-the-art Grandview Conference Center, an over 50,000 square feet facility, can accommodate up to 1,000 attendees. It also features a large outdoor meeting area, veranda and lawn, which allows for alfresco events, gatherings, and weddings. Soaring two story windows and a rustic elegance add to the new center's appeal.

Other conference room facilities available include the rustic Cedar Creek A and B with banquet rooms overlooking Big Cedar and beautiful Table Rock Lake which can accommodate a combined 160 people. For executive functions or meetings for 12 people, the Governor's Board Room is located on the top floor of Valley View Lodge.

Breathtaking views, unobstructed room design and the latest technology are solid features of all conference space. Big Cedar offers a full service audio/visual department, extensive banquet offerings and a well-qualified conference services team to attend to meeting planners and attendees. The resort is a perfect setting for team building and social activities.

The room accommodations at Big Cedar are luxurious with rustic charm and offer many activities that are complimentary to on-property guests. Rooming choices range from a standard queen room to a large three-bedroom cabin. All accommodations are a reflection of gracious Ozarks hospitality and offer every luxury amenity discerning guests would expect. Check out the whole Big Cedar experience at www.big-cedar.com.
