Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom 1 Bathroom Sleeps 4

The Scenic Ridge Cabin is truly a special place! It's a private retreat located just north of Lawton and Medicine Park, Oklahoma, and is situated in the foothills of the Wichita Mountains. The location features a wrap around patio offering unparalleled panoramic views of Mount Sheridan, Tarbone Mountain, and Mount Scott to the south and the Slick Hills and Blue Canyon Wind Farm to the north.

Our cozy and romantic octagon-shaped cabin is located near the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge, where you will find over 59,000 acres of hiking, climbing, fishing, boating, and wildlife viewing. The famous Meers Restaurant is only two miles to the east and the quaint cobblestone community of Medicine Park is just 15 minutes away.

About David and Dara Wanzer

We have loved coming to the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge and Medicine Park since we moved back to Oklahoma City in 2000. Scenic Ridge Cabin provides us a welcome reset from our day-to-day lives in OKC. We appreciate every opportunity we can to enjoy our cabin and escape our busy lives, but when we can't make it - we love sharing it with others!

David and Dara Wanzer purchased this cabin in 2015

Why David and Dara Wanzer chose Oklahoma

We had frequently daydreamed about having a little getaway near the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge and Medicine Park and were thrilled to stumble onto the Scenic Ridge Cabin "for sale" over Memorial Day weekend of 2015. We stayed for a "test" weekend and immediately fell in love with the cabin, with its special location on three acres overlooking Mount Scott, Mount Sheridan, Tarbone Mountain, the Slick Hills and the windmill farm. Our unique octagon shaped cabin has been lovingly and thoughtfully renovated and furnished. The views are incredible, and nothing beats relaxing on the wrap around patio.

What makes this cabin unique

Some of our favorite things about our cabin include: coffee or a glass of wine on the wrap around patio; the artisan touches and finishes; the privacy and solitude; nightly bunny sightings (most often at dusk;) collared lizards hanging out on the rocks; occasional owl sightings; proximity to Meers, Medicine Park, and the Wichita Wildlife Refuge; cooking dinner for a relaxing evening on the couch, watching a movies or a football game; wild turkeys scattered about our neighborhood; our kind neighbors and their sweet and loving dogs.

Fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this sweet cabin. The setting is serene and beautiful. I spent hours in the hammock reading and soaking in the view. The cabin is clean and decorated tastefully. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom has a great tub. This is a special spot on earth and I am so grateful that I got to enjoy it.

Impressive Views

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Scenic Ridge Cabin. The proximity to local attractions is perfect. There were several neighbor dogs that hung out with us all weekend, but they were friendly and my son loved them.

The cabin was just the right size for our little family of three. The kitchen was fully stocked and even had a few pantry staples that I forgot to bring from home. It was clean and very well maintained. We will be returning when we are back in the area.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Scenic Ridge Cabin is a great place -- the cabin is tastefully done, comfortable, with great views -- and even sharp knives for cooking! I used it as a retreat and also as a place to stay while visiting the Wichita Mountains, one of my favorite places to hike in Oklahoma. David and Dara were great, accommodating and available for questions when I had them. Thanks you!
