About Norma Shurden

I have been vacationing at Grand Lake for over 20 years and purchased this cottage as my overflow home for when I have extra guests and just need more bedrooms. I decided to rent it when I was not entertaining large groups myself. It's decorated like home and know you will feel very comfortable there.

Norma Shurden purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Norma Shurden chose Oklahoma

I have fallen in love with the scenery and the sense of community on Monkey Island. Activities that I have enjoyed are lake-front restaurants, golfing, boating, and shopping. This family-friendly environment has provided us with many happy memories of family gatherings over the years. It is also the perfect location for couples looking for some solitude and the charm of this community lends itself a romantic air.

What makes this cottage unique

Private swimming pool, boat slip for loading or fishing, satellite TV, WIFI, walking distance to the lake, convenient golfing locations as well as several restaurants and an airport. Please no smoking and no pets.

Peaceful Haven

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage from the moment we walked in. The decor and overall peaceful feeling was just what we needed. We absolutely enjoyed every minute of our stay. We were able to have the quiet time we needed along with all the amenities of being in your own home. We enjoyed our time so much, we never left once during our stay. We had everything we could need in the cottage. We sat outside every need to feed the foxes, two males and one female. While fishing on the dock I encountered an otter for the first time in my life. We are definitely planning on going back to stay! Miss Norma is wonderful! She is the "hostess with the mostest". :)

Needed for nothing! Very peaceful, clean, well maintained and quiet location. Would stay again at Norma's cottage. Homey and comfortable.

Perfect place to relax!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were needing to get away for some rest, relaxation and to celebrate our anniversary. We really enjoyed our stay at the Stables Cottage. It was just the perfect size for the two of us and it was beautifully decorated.

There was absolutely nothing we needed-the kitchen was well-equipped with everything we could have used. It and the bathroom were well organized. We enjoyed coffee on the back patio each morning. And I loved the pool-felt like it was a private pool, as I was the only one who used it while we were there. And, while it was hot, hubby enjoyed a little fishing off of the dock.

Norma was also very willing to make a special effort to allow us to check-in on the first day we were there-and we really appreciated that! We hope to come back to stay again!!

MONKEY ISLAND

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to the Grand Lake area and we were on a scouting trip for a potential place to retire. The Cottage was tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished. The fully furnished kitchen had about any utensil you could ever want including a Keurig coffeemaker with supplies of coffee. The whole cottage was recently updated.

It was located close to many amenities including the country club, the yaht club, Shebangs restaurant and a short drive to the closest town, Grove, OK. It is about a hundred yard walk down to waters edge where there is a dock that visitors can use. I caught a 4 lb. bass on the third cast. During one of our many rainstorms, a turtle walked up to the patio window and looked in.

The owner is a realtor who has worked in the area for 25 years. She was more than happy to show us many properties despite receiving 12 inches of rain over a three day period (this is very rare).

All in all this a very lovely, quiet place to spend a vacation. We enjoyed it immensely and would go back again.

STABLES COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to the Grand Lake Area and we were on a scouting trip for a potential place to retire. The cottage was tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished. A fully furnished kitchen had about anything you might need including a Keurig coffee maker with supplies of coffee. The whole cottage was recently updated.

It was located close to many amenities including the country club, the yacht club, Shebangs restaurant and a short drive to Grove, OK the closest town. It was only about a hundred yard walk down to waters edge where there is a dock available for guests. I caught a 4 lb. Bass on the third cast. A turtle came up and looked into the patio window during one of our many rainstorms and the fireflies come out at night.

The owner is a Realtor who has worked in this area for the past 25 years. She was more than happy to show us many properties despite the nasty weather. We received 12 inches of rain over a 3 day period (this is very rare).

All in all, this is a very lovely and quiet place to spent a vacation. We enjoyed it immensely and love the area.

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here while attending a wedding on Monkey Island. The cottage was great. Plenty of room, but small enough that it was cozy. The furnishings are classy and well maintained. The owner was a pleasure to work with and continually made efforts to ensure the stay was the best it could be. You would not regret renting this unit.

This community has a private pool, walking distance to the lake, as well as access to a private boat slip for loading and unloading only, if you have a boat available, or you can fish off the dock. Shangri-La Country Club has a pristine glof course and restaurant available to the public and is about 2.5 miles east. Property was totally updated the end of 2015 and is furnished very nicely, it is cozy and warm. If you are needing more bedrooms I own a second unit in this same community, which could be rented. It also is 2 bed one bath and has been totally updated 2015. I know you will enjoy your stay.
