Big Cedar's Horse of the Month!

by Big Cedar Lodge 15. March 2013 12:24

Hershey came to us at Cedar Mountian Stables in 2006 at approximately 6 years old. He quickly became a guest favorite, as well as a favorite among the wranglers. Hershey is known for his awesome personality and ability to do anything you ask of him: cattle drive, advanced ride or one hour trail ride. He got his name because of his chocolate color and sweet attitude. Hershey is currently offering trail rides at DWC stables, be sure to ask for him next time you go for a ride!

A Note From Friends

by Big Cedar Lodge 13. February 2013 09:52

Dear Big Cedar Lodge,

Thank you for the opportunity to share our wonderful experience at Big Cedar Lodge.  We loved the entire resort, how well thought out it is and how it absolutely has something for everyone.  We truly enjoyed the décor with all of the animal mounts and rustic charm.  It was quite evident that you truly care about those clients who stay with you and want to make them feel as welcome and comfortable as possible in this “home away from home” environment.  We enjoyed the horse-drawn carriage ride and the driver was so personable and knowledgeable.  Dogwood Canyon was breathtaking!  As fellow business owners, we admire and appreciate the use of the Big Cedar logo in everything from the wrought iron railings to the entertainment centers to the cookies left in our room each night.  We are excited to come back because there is so much more that we want to see and do “next time,” which we hope will be very soon!

 

Thanks for providing such a first class resort for everyone to enjoy!

Meet Ben, Big Cedar Lodge's Horse of the Month

by Big Cedar Lodge 1. February 2013 10:41

Name: Ben

 

Approximate age: 15

 

Breed: Percheron/Paint Cross

 

Purchase date: 1999, by previous stables manager, and current Buzzard Bar entertainer, Clay Self. Ben was approximately 2 years old when purchased. He was purchased as a riding horse, but kept getting bigger and bigger, so he got moved up to being a wagon horse, then trained to pull the carriage.

 

Favorite Treats: apples, carrots, and marshmallows

 

 

 

Behaviors: Ben is a very athletic horse, he likes to work. He is a carriage horse on BCL property. Occasionally you will find him paired up with Willy, one of our Belgium horses and pulling a wagon. Ben is a very friendly horse and loves to have his picture taken; in fact, he will even pose when you say his name. He spends most of his time hanging out with our miniature Shetland pony, Goober. They are best friends, or should we say, best trouble makers J

 

Ben is a favorite horse among our wranglers…..except when it comes to bath time! With all that white on him, he is really hard to get clean! He is also a favorite among our guests because of his unique coloring and great disposition.  He has pulled the carriage for many weddings, some even at DWC. Ben is our February Horse of the Month!!  Stop by and have your picture taken with Ben, and kids will receive a special surprise.

We'd like to share a note from a recent guest:

Hi Big Cedar,

Just wanted to tell you what a great time we had at Big Cedar Lodge. The resort is absolutely amazing! The attention to the smallest detail really impressed us. We loved the ambience created by the "outdoors" theme and the various mounts throughout the lodge and adjoining buildings. The room was great, and the beds were so comfortable! The breakfast buffet was fantastic - as was the room service the night before. As we walked the grounds and took in some of the sights, we realized just how diverse the property is. We cannot wait to come back and explore more that Big Cedar has to offer!

See you Soon!

Lighting the Big Cedar Christmas Tree

by Big Cedar Lodge 13. December 2012 15:06

What do Christmas carolers, cheerleading elves, ice carving, and Clarence Peabody have in common?  They all provide entertainment during the Big Cedar Lodge Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on the Truman Café lawn!  Every Saturday evening until Christmas, crowds come from near and far to watch a lucky child light up the huge Christmas tree; however, it’s the entertainment before that special moment that make the night truly memorable!

Take Clarence Peabody for example –as Master of Ceremonies for the evening, he offers some unconventional wit with his songs, jokes, and elf wrangling!  The carolers, dressed in Victorian clothing, bring a more traditional aspect to the gathering, and the ice carving is not only beautiful but interesting!  As each chunk of ice falls away, the creations come to life.  And what about the elves, you ask?  Well, their Pep Rally is so good; the jolly old elf himself makes a special appearance!  

 

 

Don’t miss your chance to join the celebration each Saturday at 4:30pm on the Truman Lawn at Big Cedar Lodge.  You can also find refreshments, crafts, bon-fires, and all around merriment!  And, don't forget your camera!
