Christmas Lodging in Branson

Add even more cheer to your holiday season by visiting one of Branson's most festive Christmas lodging destinations.

The joyful atmosphere in Branson - America's Christmas Tree City - makes us a world-wide Christmas destination for families and groups year after year. To celebrate the joy of the Christmas season, many of our lodging facilities organize annual holiday events and attractions for their guests and the public. 

Big Cedar Lodge

Plan the perfect holiday vacation at Big Cedar Lodge. This esteemed Branson resort offers a special Happy Holidays Package to celebrate the season. This exclusive package includes two nights lodging, a Christmas photo session producing an 8x10 family photo, a breakfast buffet at Devil's Pool Restaurant, a personalized Christmas gift from Big Cedar and tickets for Big Cedar's favorite holiday offering, Sleigh Bell Scurry.
In the Sleigh Bell Scurry event, teams dash across Big Cedar’s property and aim to solve clues from a Christmas scavenger hunt. Each correct answer allows you to collect a piece of a wreath that you will assemble after the hunt has subsided. Participants are invited to create their wreaths around a blazing bonfire and enjoy winter staples like hot chocolate and s’mores. The event begins November 1 and occurs every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evening at 6:30 pm. Cost is $70 per team (2-6 people). Reservations are required and the event is open to the public.
Reserved for resort guests only, Big Cedar’s Elf Visits are an unforgettable experience for your little ones. The elves come from the North Pole to deliver a Christmas stocking of goodies, read bedtime stories and collect letters to take to Santa. Elf Visits are available on Monday-Saturday, November 29-December 30 from 7:00pm to 10:00pm.
Big Cedar’s outdoor Winter Wonderland Ice Rink is open to both lodging guests and the public. During the evening, the ice rink lights up with beautiful Christmas lights and décor. The Winter Wonderland is open daily from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm starting on November 14.
End any holiday evening with a Big Cedar’s Holiday Light Tour which travels by tram through the entire property. The tours are open to the public, require a reservation and last 45 minutes. The tram rides are offered on Friday and Saturday nights November 19-December 30 at 6:00 pm, 6:30 pm and 7:00pm, as well as November 8-9 and November 15-16.
