Set back from main roads on a secluded, 4.8-acre lot, this cozy cabin is perfect for a romantic weekend getaway for an extended trip with family or friends. No need to worry about noisy neighbors or sitting in traffic here; disconnect and recharge with great fishing and hunting, beautiful hiking, and exciting kayaking just minutes from your door. Welcome to your Oklahoma home away from home.
After staying at Legacy Trails for a memorable family vacation in 2015, we built Sunset Ridge with the goal of sharing this wonderful place with others. We were searching for an outdoorsy escape that was dog-friendly and within driving distance of Dallas, and the Legacy Trails community was exactly what we were looking for. We hope you treasure your time here as much as we do.
The 1071-square foot cabin is one of five in a private, 35-acre enclave just one mile southwest of Smithville. Sunset Ridge is the newest one at Legacy Trails, having just opened in 2018. With gated access and exclusive use of Legacy Trails Landing on Mountain Fork River (great fly fishing spot!), we think this is the best vacation rental community in the Broken Bow Lake area.
Sunset Ridge can comfortably sleep up to six guests (children welcomed!). The two bedrooms contain queen-size beds, rustic artwork, and ample storage space. After a refreshing day on the water or in the woods, take it easy by flipping through the 150+ DirecTV channels or curling up by the fireplace with a good book.
Sharing a meal with loved ones is a breeze at Sunset Ridge, with place settings for 6 and a fully-stocked kitchen with small appliances, utensils, pots, pans, and even a slow cooker. And a trip to the wilderness must include an evening around the fire pit in the backyard, roasting marshmallows, and gazing up at the stars. You’ll have it all here at Sunset Ridge.
