Great cabin! Very peaceful and that view-WOW!

  • 4 of 5

If you truly want to get away from everything, this is the place for you! The stunning views are breathtaking while the cabin is clean, well stocked, and had the perfect amount of space for a small group. My son loved the toy chest and the pac man machine. We all enjoyed the hot tub, horseshoes, fishing poles, and being unplugged. The only reason I rated this cabin 4 stars is that we would have preferred to have a little cell coverage for emergencies only (small child with us), but if this isn’t something you have to worry about, go to this cabin, you won’t be disappointed!

Great Setting! Quite a property! Lots of space

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the setting of this property. The river is a huge asset that we enjoyed kayaking on every day. The hot tub was very much enjoyed by all. Hot tub for mom, river for dad! We appreciated the homey feeling of the cabin. It was nice that the place felt safe so the kids could just run and play. Everything was in very good shape, clean and well cared for. We found it to be very isolated, as we expected from the description, so it was nice. The neighbors dogs did break the complete solitude with their barking but it was only for a relatively short amount of time maybe a couple times a day so no big deal. Try it out! Quite a property to have all to yourself!

Perfect for a group or large family! Very clean, comfortable, up-to-date. Great scenery,

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and really enjoyed ourselves at the property. We had to families with kids meet up there and there were plenty of beds, a great kitchen for cooking, a very nice bathroom and shower. The amenities were nice and the wood-burning stove was great and very effective. My kids loved the PAC-man table top game, we loved the sitting areas, porch, outdoor fire ring, and board games and cards. We want to come back in the summer and experience the river access. It was definitely remote and isolated. A great get-away.

Awesome secure cabin with great covered porch and beautiful grounds! The pros & cons.....

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I rented this cabin for my 52nd birthday. We usually travel to Costa Rica or Puerto Vallarta for my birthday, but wanted to take our furry friend on this trip; so, we opted for an outdoor adventure. We had a wonderful stay, but with every vacation there are pros & cons. I hope that the following is helpful........


1) The cabin is awesome & secure with locking metal screen doors and solid doors and beautiful grounds.

2) Large covered porch that runs the length of the back of the cabin & wraps around to one side

3) Jacuzzi on front porch (located to the side so it's a little more private)

4) Full size appliances in kitchen and washer & dryer

5) 2 gravity loungers on porch

6) Nice outdoor patio set with table (perfect for working puzzles)

7) Never used bug spray and never saw a mosquito (1st week of October)

8) Quiet and peaceful (when dogs from kennel aren’t barking)

9) Great place for family reunions!

10) The river is beautiful!

11) We don’t fish, but loved feeding the fish in the river!

12) Great relaxing view from the porch!

13) Owner replies to questions and comments quickly.


1) Bed is old and broken down – I brought this to the owner’s attention. He replied that the previous renter complained about the bed and it was replaced the week after we left (unfortunately we had to endure the broken down old bed during our stay).

2) Bed bugs! I brought this to the owner’s attention (included pics). He said he had a professional check the cabin the day after I reported the bites and the professional said there were no signs of bed bugs (whatever). Thank goodness my doctor gave me a steroid shot and topical cream, they are almost cleared up now (2 weeks later). Again, owner said he replaced the bed after we left. So, "you're welcome" to future renters.

3) Dog Kennel/Puppy Mill at the entrance of the cabin driveway. The barking & crying is a little overbearing at times. Pulls at your heart strings! I do NOT advise driving down there and viewing it for yourself.

4) It is a steep hill to get from the cabin to the river (very doable but definitely not handicap accessible).

5) The river is much smaller than you might expect. We rented kayaks ($40 each) and had them waiting for us when we arrived, but were only able to travel a short distance in both directions; so, we only used them a couple of times.

Other Tips:

1) Bring fold up chairs & ice chest for sitting by the river.

2) Keurig is the only coffee maker, bring coffee pods.

Owner's Response: Lorri, I am glad that you had so many positive things to say about our cabin. We love to spend time at this perfect get away also with our family. You did a great job listing the positive. To address your negative post in case anyone else wants to read. The house did not have bed bugs. Professionals did come down and inspect the house. The cabin had people staying before you came and after you came and no one has complained of bed bugs in our cabin. The issue with the bed is an opinion of super soft or firm. Your mattress was a super soft mattress. We did replace the bed. It was a super soft bed that I love but some people like soft beds others do not. We have replaced it with a new memory foam mattress from Sams. It is still soft because that is what I prefer. The neighbors live 1/2 miles from our cabin and you can hear when they feed their labs at 3:00 pm each day. You can not see any neighbors from our cabin. This is the only time I hear the dogs bark. The dogs are cute and sweet. They have beautiful labs for sale. The hill getting down to the river is beautiful and you can access it. We had a wedding at the house this past spring. The bride and her father walked down the hill . It did not cause any problems for anyone at the wedding. The river is an Oklahoma river. We have times when the water is up and also when the water is lower. We do always have water in front of the cabin because there is a big hole with some small rapids also close by. We also have plenty of chairs for you to sit in. Many on the porch. If you want to carry one down by the river feel free to do so. Make sure you bring it back up to the porch before you leave. Once again. I am glad you had your birthday in our cabin. We have 17 reviews as of right now. Out of the 17 reviews we have 14 five stars. Two 4 stars. We also have your one 3 star review.
