Spa Information

Description

As you wind through our wooded entrance to Big Cedar, the ruggedness of this remote setting will surely inspire in you curiosity about the Native Americans and wild creatures who roamed these hills for centuries, living in harmony with the land. To see our history represented pictorially, please go to our photo gallery, the "History" section or you may want to purchase online the 68 page book, written by Charlie Farmer, that chronicles and illustrates the history of this magnificent resort. Tucked deep in the heart of the Ozark Mountains, the area was accessible only by horseback or foot. Just after the turn of the twentieth century, railroads made their appearance, and this phenomenal retreat from the everyday world became a vacation paradise for travelers.
The 1920s found two prominent Missourians making plans to build lavish back country resort homes on land adjoining the Long Creek Arm of the White River known as Big Cedar Hollow. Together, business entrepreneur Jude Simmons and Frisco Railroad executive Harry Worman acquired a total of 300 lushly forested acres, and construction began.
Simmons chose a log mansion, reminiscent of the grand wilderness hunting lodges found in the Adirondacks region, while Worman constructed his retreat in the traditional Tudor style of stone and stucco. Native materials were used throughout both homes, leaving the hillsides more vulnerable to erosion.
