Old Matt's Cabin on Lake Tenkiller

Looking to get away from it all? This beautiful lakefront cabin adjoins corps property 100 feet from the water's edge, providing spectacular views from every room in every season, is also 100 yards from a beach and boat ramp. Relax and enjoy Lake Tenkiller, one of the deepest, clearest lakes in Oklahoma.

This cabin has 3 bedrooms, with a king-size bed in the master. There is a queen-size bed in a second room, and two twin beds in the third bedroom. The king and queen rooms each have their own adjoining full bathrooms. The two-twin bunk bed room has an adjoining half bath. This home is perfectly suited for one or two families looking for a lake getaway, as well as the couple looking for a quiet weekend away.

There is a full kitchen with a stainless steel oven and glass stovetop, full-size refrigerator, microwave. We have a variety of kitchen utensils, as well as a Kuerig and a coffee pot. There is also a washer and dryer. In the family room you will find a 50' flat screen tv with DIRECTV and a bluray disc player. The kids twin room has a 27' TV with its own bluray player.

The deck provides stunning views of the water 100' away, as well as gorgeous views of fall foliage on the hills surrounding Lake Tenkiller. There is a gas grill provided with propane.

Directly across the cove from the cabin is Snake Creek Marina and State Park. Here, you can rent a boat and/or a slip, as well as get gas. You can also enjoy lunch or dinner at the marina's restaurant on the water.

The boat ramp and rocky beach are less than a 100 yard walk from the cabin. There, you can launch your boat, skip rocks, fish, or swim. We have seen LOTS of wildlife at our cabin! A doe and her two fawns are known to frequent the deer feeder behind the home, as are a raccoon, ground hogs and chipmunks. The deer also like to swim from our banks over to nearby islands. We are always sad when it is time to leave our relaxing home-away-from-home. We hope that you find the rest and relaxation you need during your time here, as well!

About Matt Bowler

We are a family of four who loves spending time together outdoors. We grew up going to Tablerock Lake in Missouri, where Matt's grandmother lived on the lake. When we moved to Oklahoma, we searched to find a lake where we could share similar memories with our children.

Matt Bowler purchased this House in 2012

Why Matt Bowler chose Vian

We have spent time on many Oklahoma lakes since moving here in 2006, but only Lake Tenkiller could match the rolling hills and deep, clear waters of Tablerock. It is very difficult to find homes on Tenkiller that are waterfront due to the stringent Corps of Engineers guidelines. When we found this home, we knew we had found a rare gem. The dock road dead-ends, so there is little traffic and lots of wildlife... perfect for explorers young and old.

What makes this House unique

You cannot find a home closer to the water or a boat ramp on Tenkiller as our deck actually overhangs the Corp of Engineers lake property. This unique location provides unparalleled access to the water and a boat ramp. The east side of the home is nearly all glass providing spectacular sunrises in the morning and beautiful views of the sun on the mountains in the evening. Deer and other wildlife roam the hill behind the cabin.

                                                      Bobby B.

                                                      Great house and right on the lake! My experience was great boat ramp access very close. A close by marina is advertised as having a live band. I stopped by every marina i could find close by and they did not know anything about live music. Other than that everything was aweaome.

                                                      Cozy, comfortable cabin with an amazing view

                                                      Jamie B.

                                                      My husband and I stayed at Old Matt's cabin for an extended weekend at the beginning of June. The view from the cabin was beautiful. The cabin itself was cozy, comfortable and clean. I loved everything from the decor to all the comforts of home. I wish we could have stayed longer. I also appreciate the fact that the owner is very responsive to messages both before and during our stay.

                                                      Loved it!!

                                                      Lovely and relaxing place with a nice view to the lake. Had a great getaway with the family it was too short but we will be back.

                                                      Located in the Cato Creek across the cove from Snake Creek Marina & State Park, you will find ample opportunities to engage in all of your favorite watersports from morning until dusk. If you prefer, evenings spent on the deck overlooking the water are equally delightful.
