About the property

Mountaintop One-Room Cabin, Sleeps 2, above Pettit Bay with incredible views

Enjoy gorgeous views of Lake Tenkiller from this cozy one-room cabin perched on top of Pettit Mountain in NE Oklahoma. Recently renovated, this 600 sq. ft. cabin offers everything you’ll need for a relaxing get-away. There is a log-queen bed, full bath, a comfy sofa in front of a rock fireplace with a woodstove insert, and a 37 inch flat-screen TV with DVD/blue-ray player and Dish satellite. The kitchenette has a small stove/oven, granite counter tops, fridge, and microwave. The dining table sits by the large picture window overlooking the lake and forest. The covered back porch has cedar-log rocking chairs and you can feel the breezes coming off of the lake. All bedding and linens are provided. The “Little Cabin” is really designed only for 2 people. A small child might be OK on the sofa or air mattress, but at this point, we don’t know how much water the septic system can hold. We still have landscaping to finish up, but the surrounding scenery more than makes up for it.

Boat parking available.

Only minutes to the Pettit Bay Campground and Marina.

We have a larger cabin next door that has even more spectacular views of the lake and hills. “The Big Cabin” has 3 bedrooms and sleeps 6. Our goal for both cabins is to provide a comfortable, cozy place where our guests feel at home and have a chance to get away from it all without spending a fortune.

There seems to be a glitch in the homeaway/vrbo notification system so we are not getting all reservation requests when they are booked. We do get Inquiries via text so maybe do an Inquiry first and then go ahead and book. If you don't hear from us in a few hours then call because we probably didn't see the request. Other owners are having the same trouble. Also, consider the insurance to cover last minute cancellations.

About Patrick & Tisa Newton

We live outside of Tahlequah, Oklahoma. Patrick is a retired police officer and Tisa works for Cherokee Nation.

Patrick & Tisa Newton purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Patrick & Tisa Newton chose Oklahoma

We purchased the property from a friend but it needed a lot of work. We contemplated tearing it down. The view of the lake was blocked by trees from the property next door, so when it came up for sale, we ended up buying it in order to open up the view. Before we knew it, we were renovating both properties as vacation rentals.

What makes this cabin unique

The views from the cabin are incredible. In the Fall, the hills are covered in vibrant colors. It is so peaceful and relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I stayed at Pat and Tisa's cozy cabin over 4th of July 2013. It sure was a great place to get away for the weekend. Summers in Oklahoma are hot and humid, but our cabin stayed nice and cool through out the day. The view from the back porch that over looked the lake was hard to beat. The cabin had everything we needed for a wonderful get away. We plan on returning the next chance we can get, especially at the very reasonable price they have their cabins!

Quiet family neighborhood. We've promised our neighbors that we won't have large gatherings or parties. Just below the cabin is Pettit Bayside Resort and Piddle's Place Restaurant as well. There's a beer garden and all sorts of activities. It's a wonderful spot to hang out. The Pettit Bay Campground is also right there as well.

Quiet hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Patrick and Tisa for sharing your "Little Cabin" with us! We enjoyed our time on the porch, rocking away, so peaceful with a georgous view. We were fortunate to see an abundance of wildlife. The cabin was awesome and very comfortable, just like being at home! Thanks for going above and beyond for me! 😊?

Pure Bliss

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been here twice, and I've got to say, it feels like home away from home - only better! The cabin is a delight: comfy, cozy, private, and equipped with everything you need for the perfect get-away! Outside, the covered porch is just as spectacular as the breath-taking views of Tenkiller Lake and the grove of trees surrounding the property!

Thank you, Tisa and Patrick, for sharing your precious Little Cabin! We can't wait to come your way again!

Perfect for Two...and a Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is well furnished, very nicely decorated and maintained, and has such a comfy sofa and bed! And it has a wonderful large covered porch and outside area with fire pit as well. The cabin is laid out so well that is feels open and roomy, although it is really just one large room. A great cabin for two people, and with awesome views of the lake below.

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This little cabin was the perfect getaway for my boyfriend and I. We celebrated his birthday and he wanted to get out of town without being stuck in the car for a long time. The drive was super easy and the location was beautiful: hill top, backs up to trees and you still get a great view of the lake.

The cabin was well stocked and the bed was comfortable. We cooked while we were there and Tisa had all the utensils/cookware we needed. It did rain, so we weren't outside much but we sat on the back porch and relaxed. Tisa was great; she responded and called in a timely manner which is a major plus for me. Much love from Tulsa, OK!

It was perfect, just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

The directions were right on. The view is perfect. No road noise just the birds singing. Anything you need is 10 to 20 minutes away. It is small, one room, but for the price it is great. We had no problems. It took 10 day to get the $200 deposit back. We were very happy with it.
