About Tom Ferguson

Our family moved to Tulsa in 1985 from a tiny town in Kansas, where we had grown accustomed to small town living. To get away from the hustle and bustle of Tulsa, we finally found a little home away from home near Lake Tenkiller when we purchased Big Bear Cabin in 1990. As our kids got married and had kids of their own we needed more space, so in 2000 we acquired Little Bear cabin.

Tom Ferguson purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Tom Ferguson chose Gore

We love the small town feel of the Tenkiller Lake area, and there are so many things to do on the lake or off.

What makes this cabin unique

We all love the fact that most don't even know our cabins are there. They are not viewable from the street, so unless you know the turn-off is there they are our little secret. Nestled perfectly in the mountains, they are are close to our dock and marina, yet within driving distance of several restaurants.

Birthday Weekend with family

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a Friday evening in time to grill dinner. We brought charcoal and used the grill available but noticed there was also a gas grill for use. We stopped in Talequah for groceries-it's the closest nice sized town. We had a little bit of an issue deciding if we were on the right driveway as it is not marked and hard to spot. But I understand that this affords an extra element of privacy, so it didn't bother us much. The owner was very friendly and before our arrival had sent a message to call if there were any problems at all!

The cabin was spacious, clean and cool. I had brought coffee and filters but there were filters there. Very nice size kitchen and full size stove and refrigerator with an ice maker, which was a plus-we cooked all of our meals in the cabin. The kitchen was well equipped for our needs with plenty of dishes, utensils, and cookware. There is also a dishwasher so no need to spend time over the sink doing dishes. Just bring your food, drinks, cooking supplies {oil, butter, pan spray], and seasonings and your good to go.

The bedrooms were clean and beds were comfy-my brother and his wife joined us Saturday night and were impressed with the comfort of the bunk beds. The bathroom was nice and plenty big with endless hot water. Plenty of towels and wash clothes for your use. We brought our own swimming towels for the lake and river.

The living room was comfortable with a nice sized tv and cable, I believe there was a dvd, but we did not use it. Also, wireless internet in the cabin worked perfectly-although cell service was a little off and on.

The best part of cabin, well other than the delightful decor was the front porch. We spent morning and evening enjoying the forest view.

Thank you so much for a very pleasant stay!

Great secluded place!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! It was hidden and secluded, which was nice for us having dogs, they could run around without worrying about a road being close by. It did take us a little while to find the turn in, but I was able to call Tom and he was very nice and helped us find it.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stand and the owner was extremely nice and accommodating to us all week. Will definitely stay here again if I come back for another round of waterfowl hunting next winter.

Also within driving distance is the Illinois River if you want to spend the day floating down the river.

The quiet and seclusion make the cabin a perfect Fall and Winter retreat. Settle in and relax, explore the woods in winter, or just watch videos with your family.
