About Brad and Deb
We are the couple that your friends talk about when the topic of on-line dating comes up...We met that way 12 years ago, and it has been a fairy tale story ever since! Yep folks, it was LOVE at first sight. We are both high energy & enjoy PROJECTS, new adventures and exploring Nature. We still feel like the new-comers to Oklahoma but have been embraced by so many and feel fortunate to call this place home! We do not have any children, (only the fur-babe kind) and we look forward to building relationships with the guests that will stay at our home! Brad is a professional mechanic for over 30 years who began his career at Boeing in Wichita. He can fix/and or build just about ANYTHING! His day job includes trouble-shooting, repairing & rebuilding cnc machines and various similar high-performance technical things-that makes-other-things ( my terms) the wife, When he's not driving all around Tulsa, or Arkansas-to Texas with his company, on his days off, he continues to "fix things" that the wife dreams up? Deb is a Graphic Designer, Instructor and Master Faux & Decorative Artisan who just recently opened her first retail space in the building we bought next store to our house. Welcome to L3, Live-Love,Lake Boutique. This new creative adventure has been so rewarding to meet & greet neighbors and vacationers from all over while stretching her creative energy in new ways. Deb still does freelance contracting for graphics, finishing and theme development and has a part-time job as “Sales & Design Consultant” with 360 Painting Company, Tulsa.
Brad and Deb purchased this House in 2016
Why Brad and Deb chose Wagoner
We fell in love with Green Country, OK when Brad got hired by a company in Tulsa in June, 2016. We always wanted to some-day retire on a lake and Ft. Gibson was calling our name. We were a bit skeptical to consider buying on such a busy highway but it has proved to be such a blessing. We moved in Labor Day weekend of 2016, and the projects began! We pulled out the carpet to make the home more 'pet-friendly' except one bedroom which was converted to a Mother-in-Law suite. We not only bought the home with Brad's dream workshop, but we bought the abandoned building on the hill next door the following January. We cleaned up the (Old Restaurant) building and property to find what was buried in the hill. Shortly after arriving in OK, we met a neighbor who had just opened and Art Gallery, her passion became ours and we designed the space for her to move into the following May. When we purchased this house in Taylor Ferry, Deb's Mother lived with us and we had intentions of living in it for a several years and eventually turning it into a Vacation Home...Another practical advantage of this home is it's all on one level as the house before this had many steps to deal with every day. Our plans changed when Mom had to move into a Care Home instead of the apartment we were planning for her next door. We decided to move to the apartment and speed up our plans to "Share our View" of the house overlooking Ft. Gibson to this Spring, 2018! This is truly a very unique property that offers so many conveniences for Lake-living and RELAXATION!!
What makes this House unique
This home is so convenient to all the things we LOVE... Waking up to the sunrise over the Lake is such a treat! being able to throw on flip-flops and walk to the water... golf-cart to the swim beach... ride our bikes over for Pizza or to the Beer Cave next store... hook the pontoon up- drive across the street to the ramp, and off we fishing, naps, sunsets, zoom over to a restaurant on the water, to a friends dock...LAKE LIFE IS GOOD! Living on "Lake Time" is not just a saying, it is our lifestyle and we are anxious to share that with others who appreciate the nature and recreational beauty of Ft. Gibson Lake & Taylor Ferry. We are so close to Tulsa, where we both work, and we are learning new things about nearby towns and making efforts to explore the back roads and the home grown businesses & activities all around us. We look forward to meeting the many guests that will come STAY! & PLAY! and SHOP! at the Venue in Taylor Ferry... and quite possibly, we will be making new lifelong friends that come back year after year!

Perfect for our needs!
Wanted a place to relax with some friends for a few days. This was an excellent choice as felt like home. Due to weather was unable to enjoy the deck as much as we had liked but that was no fault of theirs.
Everything for everyone!
Deb and Brad's home is adorable! The decor from room to room is just amazing. There is plenty of space and areas for large groups to hang out together and then plenty of opportunities and areas for the times you'd rather be alone! We spent a week here with our grandchildren, grand dog and our two dogs and everyone had a great time! The house is located very close to Wagoner which has several restaurants and attractions and about 30 minutes from Muskogee which is considerably larger. We will definitely go back!
Summer Vaca 2019
We all (4 adults, 3 kids, & 2 dogs) really enjoyed this property. The back deck is large and the backyard is huge, so lots of room to play. They have cute little chalkboards hanging on cabinets and storage places to help you find what you are looking for and a book with tons of information about the surrounding area. We went into Wagoner for the 4th of July fireworks show, and it was an amazing show!!
We were thrilled to have you select "Our View" for your family to spend the 4th Holiday!! We'd welcome you all back ANYtime!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and proximity to the lake. Brad and Deb are great also.
The property is very well taken care of and had everything we needed. We will definitely come back.
thank you for staying with us and we WELCOME you & yours back any time!!
This was our first time staying at someone's home for a vacation. I think we picked the best one possible! This home was absolutely beautiful within our favorite area of the lake. We could look at the view while doing dishes! The art work and décor were very tasteful and comfortable. The grounds and back deck were to die for. If you have a big party and need room this is the place for you. We will absolutely return to this property in the future. Brad and Deb were great and had a complimentary bottle of wine when we arrived. Thanks again!
Great owners, simple and clean home
We stayed there last week and the owners welcomed us and made sure our stay is comfortable. The House has pretty much everything you need. Nice grill, and back deck. Big backyard for kids to play as well.
