Overview

About the property

Off-grid Luxury Glamping! 1 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

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!

The Cliffhouse has one queen bedroom downstairs and a 350 sq ft queen loft bedroom upstairs.

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......

About Andy & Debbie

Andy and I love to travel. We have been to many places such as Canada, Mexico, Hawaii and all over the US. We discovered Broken Bow, OK in 2007 when we began Boating and ATV'g. We instantly fell in love with the area. It quickly became our dream to own land inside of the National Forest. We realized our dream April of 2012. Andy and I immediately began construction on our cabin we call The Cliffhouse. We wanted to share our dream with everyone else as well. We invite to come out to The Cliffhouse. You will feel rejuvenated, relaxed and glad you came. Please give us a call or email us with questions.

Andy & Debbie purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Andy & Debbie chose Broken Bow

We wanted some acreage for privacy and possible future development.

What makes this cabin unique

Stunning views, seclusion, privacy, peace.

Beautiful, Secluded, Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at The Cliff House at Bear Creek exceeded our expectations. Pictures don't do the view from the cabin justice, but even the humming birds pictured greeted us.

The need for a vehicle with clearance is an understatement, as the drive up to the cabin was an adventure. I finally found a reason to use low gear in my 2-wheel drive F150. It is 5 miles of unpaved road to the cabin, but only the last 3/4s of a mile is a challenge - a sharp uphill grade with several washout berms to climb over. As stated, 4-wheel drive is not required, but the extra clearance and pull up the hill would be comforting.

Time your morning right and you have a perfect vantage point to watch the sun rise over the mountains on the opposite side of the lake. Two hours of jet ski rental at the marina was a great way to experience the lake. And the restaurants recommended by the cabin owners were also great experiences.

Communication with the owners was excellent. The cabin was as described, fully furnished and clean. Electricity is via solar with a backup generator that worked flawlessly.

A lot of times you can rent a place, sight unseen, and nothing is as described and turns out to be a big disappointment. That is definitely not the case here. We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay and will gladly pick this cabin again for our next stay in Broken Bow.

Incredible gettaway, true beauty

  • 5 of 5

I came to the cliffhouse with my two very active dogs (blue heeler-mix) in the hopes of finding some peace and calm for all of us. I found it! It is not easy finding a place to take medium size dogs that need A LOT of exercise, and where they won't be caged up indoors all the time. We were able to hang out on the deck and relax after long hikes down to the lake where the dogs swam and played for hours with no-one around, only us. I have never seen my dogs so calm, relaxed and just right out happy, and if they could talk they would probably say the same about me. We will definitely be back!

Oh, and the cabin itself is wonderful! Comfortable bed, the kitchen has everything you can ever need, the view is incredible, the hosts are super people, couldn't have asked for anything better!

Great fun great get a way

  • 5 of 5

This is a get a way for sure be sure to a car will not make it up the last hill. We loved every minute of our stay. We were able to ride the ATV from the cabin and made several trips on it. We then too the kayaks out for a spin in the park and got a sun burn but would not had traded this trip for any fancy trip. I hated to leave the mountain and come back home. Thanks to our cabin crew for helping out with an issue we had with the trailer ( remember its a steep and rough road) he sure did not have to but seemed happy to help and refused a tip when we tried to give it to him.. I know we will be back
