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.

Amazingly remote with jaw dropping views!

Wonderful home in a remote place. Great place to be away from the hustle and bustle of city life and close to some great little towns that have plenty of offer. Highly reccomend this wonderful place!

Beautiful and so peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

I honestly do not have words to describe how beautiful this place is! I brought my two pups for some time away to relax and recharge after a very tumultuous summer, and boy is this the perfect location for that! The view is phenomenal, and the cabin itself was so cute and clean! We had everything we needed, plus some! I would highly, highly recommend waking up for the sunrise at least one morning during your stay. It is breathtaking! This place is truly secluded. We did not see or hear another person during our entire stay, and we hiked all around the area! Thank you Andy and Debbie for making this place available! I will absolutely be back!

About as private (and beautiful) as you can get

  • 5 of 5

Very nice cabin with incredible view. Very clean and up to date with all necessary amenities. Huge deck on the front facing due east so the sunrises across the lake behind the mountains. Beautiful! Take everything you need food-wise as once you get up here you won't want to leave. In three days we heard 2 vehicles on the road down below us, once someone else's generator for a just few minutes and maybe half a dozen airplanes way overhead. There are 3 cabins spread out over the 80 acres and no one else anywhere around. You can't see or hear the other cabins. Really private. Solar powered and even with the first 2 days being overcast our generator never came on until the morning we left and that only for 20 minutes or so. Based on the other reviews we took our 4WD ranch pickup and had no trouble at all getting in even in a rainstorm. Any SUV or crossover should be fine but a little Honda, etc., might drag bottom a couple of times on the way up. For those planning to use the upstairs loft with queen bed and futon, be aware that it really is a ships ladder to get up there and requires a bit of dexterity. No problem but if you're a senior citizen plan on sleeping in the master on the first floor ;-) We loved this place and have already talked to some friends about coming back as a group next year!
