Set on an 800-acre preserve, this immaculately landscaped hilltop getaway overlooks Missouri’s bass-filled Table Rock Lake and lures adventure types (who find no shortage of ranges to ride and Ozark wilderness to hike). Well-appointed lodge rooms have quaint writing desks and western-inspired throws; the 81 log cabins, with wood-burning fireplaces and exposed-wood beams, will be fully restored by spring. Paddleboard on the private marina, unwind at the spa (there are actually two), or dine in one of the property’s four restaurants. There are other additions as well, such as a golf course set to open in 2013 and a soon-to-open white clapboard wedding chapel, which guests can access by riding in the same green 1948 Chevrolet pickup truck that served Kevin Costner—one of the celebs with an eponymous cabin—during his nuptials.

Room to Book:

Fall Lodge guest rooms have balconies overlooking the expansive property and the serene Table Rock Lake.

Insider Tip:

Tap into your inner city slicker and arrange a cattle drive through the green pastures of the nearby 10,000-acre Dogwood Canyon. You’ll watch expert guides rope rowdy cattle and Texas longhorn—and a fireside lunch awaits you at the resort’s chuckwagon site.
