About Amanda & Bill Nixon

We are long time residents of Piedmont, Oklahoma, almost two decades now. We built this vacation dream home in 2009. We love spending our free time at Vista Estrella. We are graduates of Oklahoma State University and the University of Oklahoma.

Amanda & Bill Nixon purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Amanda & Bill Nixon chose Pittsburg County

We looked at several lakes in Oklahoma before deciding on this beautiful area of Lake Eufaula. We built this dream vacation home as a mountain lodge on waterfront property and hope to pass this home and lake experience on to our children and grandchildren.

What makes this cabin unique

Our home offers guests a spectacular view of Oklahoma's Lake Eufaula from two outside decks, the screened dining porch, and through walls of windows located on both levels. Our quiet cove has clear water and is popular with fishermen, boaters and swimmers. We love drinking coffee on the cool shaded front porch and star-gazing or dozing on the lakeside decks. Our home is close to Robbers Cave State Park which is great for hiking, photography, and fall foliage. We love making the short drive to Krebs for Italian food and groceries. Our home is an all-season home. We are close to Eufaula's Yogi Bears water obstacle course, inflatable water slides and trampoline. Yogi also rents canoes and paddleboats, you can play miniature golf and enjoy its swimming pool. There are several casinos located in nearby Shawnee, McAlester, Eufaula and Checotah. Lake Eufaula has fishing tournaments, boat rentals at nearby marinas and Golfing is available at Arrowhead and Fountainhead.

Fantastic graduation weekend!

This is a beautiful, roomy lake house where wonderful family memories can be made. The views were tremendous. We especially enjoyed the deck and screened in porch. The kitchen is well stocked and the beds were comfortable. This house surpassed our expectations!

Clark Family Vaca 2018 - Lake House Extraordinaire

  • 5 of 5

We could not have had a better experience this last week. Your beautiful lake home left nothing to the imagination and provided us with more than expected. It will spoil us for future vacations in other parts of the country for sure. The weather turned out perfect, so we were able to enjoy the outdoors more than we thought we would get to. We built a bon fire and sat for a long time around it telling stories and reminiscing. We played cards in the screened in porch. We all helped with food prep and there was plenty of room for everyone. We sat on the decks and ate and visited and watched the lake. We took family pictures on the front porch and on the rocks on the side of the house. They are beautiful. We went to the beach on Saturday and it was lovely. My husband fished a couple of days and enjoyed it, although he didn't bring home any. In all, it was better than expected and all of us had a very nice time. Thank you for your hospitality.

Rustic Luxury with a breathtaking view

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time! The house is beautiful and everything you could possibly need is provided. My boys had a blast exploring the woods and lake area and of course the fire pit was a huge hit. We just wanted to get away for a few days and enjoy some quality family time and this home certainly provided us with that opportunity. Everything was neat and clean and beautifully decorated. The view is amazing. I could have sat on the deck all day, but as I said, I have boys. Lol.. Even our dog had a blast! We really did not want to leave. I would highly recommend this home. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and responded almost immediately to any questions I had.
