The Cliffhouse is a very special place. A 1,000 sq ft cabin atop a mountain on 40 acres over looking Lake Broken Bow. Surrounded by 6,000 acres of National Forest and US Core of Engineer land.
The locals describe the view as 'the best view in all of McCurtain county - period'.
Unparalleled hiking, mountain biking, bird watching right from your doorstep. .

The Cliffhouse is entirely off-grid. We make our own power, water, hot water, and have our own septic system. Be 100% green and still have all the luxuries of home!
However because we are green we do have to choose which luxuries we would like to have. We do not have tubs or hot tubs in our cabin.
The Cliffhouse has one queen bedroom downstairs and a 350 sq ft loft bedroom upstairs with a queen bed and a full size futon.
The upstairs loft is accessed via ships ladder and has breathtaking views over the lake.
There is a full bathroom with shower and a half bath, both downstairs
The 600 sq ft deck faces the lake and has incredible panoramic views.
Max occupancy is two couples or a family of five.
The Cliffhouse may not be suitable for children under ten years old. (ladder)
Access - The Cliffhouse sits 5 miles off the highway and is accessed by US Forest Service roads. Its a beautiful drive, but you will need a car with some clearance and a bit of driving skill to make it in. We often times see white tail deer, turkey, and birds of prey including red tail hawks and various owls. The first 2 miles of the drive is easy, you can drive 25 mph. The remaining 3 miles is slower and requires some attention. You will cross 4 or 5 small creeks on the way in. Water is rarely more than 4 inches deep. There are also grades up to 12% on gravel roads.
There is cell phone service at the Cliffhouse. Verizon and AT&T works best. Sprint does not work at all. There is a new Verizon 4G LTE tower across the lake, we have seen speeds up to 15MB from the deck.
You will need to bring your own entertainment for the Cliffhouse. No cable TV planned for the near term.
ATVs - Seasonal riding is allowed on the surrounding US Forest Roads in May - Sept 15. However you need to review ALL the rules very carefully and follow them closely. No two up riding unless machine is specifically designed for such. All kids under 18 must wear helmets. STAY ON THE ROADS. No alcohol. The local rangers enjoy enforcing the rules to the last letter. Its possible for a group of riders to rack up several thousand dollars in fines......
