About the owner: John and I moved to Tishomingo with our two children (now grown) many years ago after he finished his tour in the military. John was raised nearby and when we moved here I fell in love with the people, lakes, rivers and woods. Having grown up on the bare plains of South Dakota, I was delighted to move to such a beautiful area. John is retired from his pallet building business, and enjoys watching television and talking to his two dogs. Donna is a Cosmetology Instructor and manager of a beauty college. She is looking forward to retiring soon and spending more time spoiling great grandchildren, gardening and meeting visitors.

It is located one mile by road to Lake Texoma and only nine miles to Blue River, which makes it ideal for fishing, hiking and swimming. The woods are full of wildlife, birds, wild grape vines and dogwoods that add beauty to the ever changing seasons.
