About Linda & David Birchett

Living in Oklahoma City and coming to Lake Tenkiller on weekends, my husband and I always wanted to stay at the lake until we wanted to leave--not had to leave to go back to work. We moved to our lake home in 2003 and enjoy boating, fishing, walking, and all of the scenery and entertainment the lake area has to offer. We are now a semi-retired couple who recently fulfilled our dream of completely renovating a house--it just so happens to be next door to our primary residence.

Linda & David Birchett purchased this house in 2013

Why Linda & David Birchett chose Oklahoma

We purchased this particular property because it is located next door to our home and we wanted to restore it to its former beauty. It turned out even better than we expected! We are anxious to share it with visitors and hope they enjoy the area as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

The property is located on a dead-end gravel road. Wooded lots separate all four houses on the street so there is privacy and solitude, yet residents and visitors are not so secluded as to feel isolated and insecure.

Just what we wanted.

  • 5 of 5

We chose this rental due to our desire for three bedrooms and two baths to accommodate five members of our extended family and also it's proximity to the Cookson area of Lake Tenkiller and the Cookson Bend Resort and Marina. All family members were very pleased with the comfort, exceptional maintainence, beautiful and restful setting, pleasant grounds and overall thoughtfulness on display at this charming house. Additionally, David was most accommodating. We felt totally at ease with just the right combination of privacy and proximity to the Lake and the lovely town of Tahlequah.

Good VRBO Experience!

  • 5 of 5

No surprises from the description of the house; it's clean and well maintained. It's a little hard to find if you're trying to use GPS navigation, but the directions David sends you will get you right to it. Proximity to Cookson Marina is excellent (3 minute drive maybe?). We loved the fire pit area and deck, and the property was landscaped and well kept. A lake view would have been fantastic, but this place had everything else. Very good experience for the whole group.

The best lake house we've ever stayed at!!!

  • 5 of 5

I will NOT be able to say enough about this house. Meticulously maintained and clean. No attention to detail is spared! The entire grounds from outside to inside is very well kept. Perfectly settled on a dead end street in a wooded area which makes for peace and quiet and solitude. The house is beautifully decorated with personal touches everywhere. It is stocked with anything you would need which includes the kitchen area as well. You feel completely comfortable like you would in your own home. Downstairs game area was a hit with the kids. Multiple decks where you can sit and enjoy each other and the ambience. Did not see one spider web or bug for that matter which is very rare when you stay at these houses. You can tell they put so much detail into the cleaning because even the outside decks and fire pit area had no webs or bugs or anything like that. Horse shoes by the fire pit area as well. The thing that sets this house apart though is the personal touches: frosted glasses in the freezer, a plate of cookies waiting for you on the counter, a candy machine they keep stocked, hand written "welcome" signs, the exact number of coffee packets you need for each morning you are there, huge bundle of firewood and a basket of kindling with lighter fluid and matches by the fire pit so you can easily and quickly get it going. Ok I'm going to quit now haha. You can obviously tell they love this home and take such pride in it and really want you to enjoy your stay!

Great, clean cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was super clean. The decks were amazing (unfortunately too hot to use the fire pit, but it would be fun!). Owners were very prompt with communication and cleaning deposit refund. Definately would recommend this property.
