About Kathy or Rick Ary

Let us introduce ourselves! We are Rick and Kathy Ary and are from the Tulsa area. We love the lake and have made many great memories at many of the beautiful lakes in Oklahoma.

Kathy or Rick Ary purchased this house in 2014

Why Kathy or Rick Ary chose Oklahoma

We chose this area because of its close proximity to everything. Need milk? It is right up the street. Decide to grill out tonight? Run down to Littlefields for the best meats you can find anywhere. Feel like golfing? Shangri La Resort is right around the corner. And fishing? Well you can fish for bass and crappie right off our dock!

What makes this house unique

Grand Lake is so beautiful and when we first laid eyes on our little Memory Maker Cottage in 2014, it was love at first site! We hope you love it and enjoy your stay as much as we do!

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

House is exactly like the pictures and is located in a quiet cove. Kathy was very accessible when we had any questions. The screened in porch was a great place to hang out at night.

Lovely home on great area of the lake!

  • 4 of 5

My extended family of 23 came to Grand Lake for a family reunion. We rented three homes, all on the same street. This home was very nice. We absolutely loved the large screened in porch and extra large dining table the home had to offer! The home had very nice decor and the furnishings were great. Bedrooms are a little small, but not a huge issue. Both had closets to hang items, although would be best to ensure those are fairly cleaned out for guests to use. The owners do a nice job providing pots and pans, dishes, etc., along with spices and paper supplies to get our trip started out on the right foot! There was a lot of leftover food from previous renters in the refrigerator when we arrived. Some folks appreciate that, but I am not a fan of using already opened items, and would suggest a full cleanout by the cleaning crew so we can have full use of the appliance. The dock came in handy for our boat and the cove the home is located in is lovely and quiet! Plenty of parking for our cars and boat trailer, and a nice deck and porch swing! We had some trouble with the air conditioning in the cottage house, but Kathy was quick to respond and did everything she could to remedy the problem while we were there. Overall, it was a great trip and a lovely home. I would recommend this home to anyone traveling to Monkey Island!

Owner's Response: Heidi, Thank you so much for your kind review. I am so glad your family enjoyed the place and the reunion was successful. We appreciate your tolerance of the air conditioner in the cottage. We replaced the unit after your stay and now both the house and the cottage have new heating and cooling units so this should not be a problem in the future. We hope to see you and your family again soon!

Sweet Little Get Away Lake Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed the Ary's lake property. The cabin was clean, nice lake decor and furniture, kitchen had all the supplies we needed and a lovely welcome basket upon our arrival. We enjoyed the screened in porch, deck and boat dock. Their cove and surrounding coves are a great place to paddle board and fish. The cabin is located near the golf course, and several places to eat out. During the day the screened porch could get a bit warm, but the house was cool. Our family slept in the house and guest house, it would of been to warm to sleep on the porch. The deck could use some new plastic chairs, but that was the only con. The Ary's worked hard to return a fishing rod that was accidentally left behind which was greatly appreciated.

Great little lake cabin and we will gladly stay there again.

Lovely fall weekend

  • 5 of 5

It was such a pleasure to get to celebrate my best friends 51st birthday at this quaint lake house. Other than getting in the water, I think that we utilized every outdoor space there was! The screened porch was perfect in the evening with the heater on and even had a fire outside while we grilled and dined at the patio table. Spent our days antique & flea market shopping and just enjoying the lovely fall weather. Thanks for some great memories!

Amazing Home with EVERYTHING you could want

  • 5 of 5

I could not ask for more! The owners were amazing and their home perfect. I thought the screened in porch was wonderful for our family dinners and games. The outside deck was also wonderful. The cool nights were no problem with the outdoor fireplace! We will be coming back when school is out!
