Best Outdoorsy Escape

Staying at Big Cedar Lodge while it’s blanketed in snow provides ultra-gorgeous views and a few extra-curricular activities, like sledding.

Big Cedar Lodge


For an easy-to-plan getaway that’s definitely splurge-worthy, book one of the private one-room cabins at Big Cedar Lodge. These retreats have all of today’s modern comforts with just enough rustic charm and access to the outdoors to make a weekend trip feel truly luxurious. Get a good night’s sleep in a super-comfy king-size bed layered with soft blankets. The main living area comes equipped with a full-size fridge and cooking area plus a rustic kitchen table crowned by an antler chandelier that adds the perfect touch of countryside charm that goes hand-in-hand with a weekend at Big Cedar. As the night winds down, you can curl up by the wood-burning fireplace and enjoy the sunset on the private back deck that overlooks the river below, or simply slip into the jetted hot tub. 

The private one-room cabins at Big Cedar Lodge are equipped with wood-burning fireplaces, jetted tubs and many more luxurious amenities.
