Overview

About the property

Secluded cozy 2 BR, 2 bath with seasonal lakeviews, short walk to lake & launch

How about a canoe suspended from the vaulted ceiling in the living area? We've got it! You will love our driftwood patterned flooring, woodburning fireplace, huge windows with seasonal expansive view of the trees and lake view, covered deck, open air deck with propane grill, and sleeping accommodations for 6. Enjoy an easy walk all downhill to the lake and community boat launch and fishing dock. Looking for some great food and entertainment? Jump in your car (or boat) for about a 5 minute drive to Tanglewood for live music, delicious food, and tons of yachts! Feed the ducks and fish from their outside deck - the kids and adults will love it! Call one of the great fishing guides for a fun day on the lake. This cabin boasts two spacious bedrooms, one with queen bed with pillowtop mattress. Second bedroom features two pillow top twin beds. If you bring along some friends, feel free to pop open the queen sized sleeper sofa. All the amenities you would expect are supplied in the kitchen. We provide coffee, spices, and enough utensils for the pickiest of chefs. Outdoors, we have covered parking for two vehicles and a spot for your trailer or boat. Have fun roasting wieners or making s'mores (we provide the s'more "fixins") on our fire pit with reclaimed tree stumps for seats. Hike in the woods, jog the hills, or enjoy our satellite TV and free WIFI. The decor is so much fun.. check out 'Buck' the pirate deer (faux) mount, all our cute signs, and as the sign under the clock says: 'It's 5 0'clock somewhere'! Throw your steaks and burgers on the propane grill while you enjoy watching the boats on the lake from the covered and uncovered deck. Choctaw Casino is about a 30 minute drive from the cabin. Check out THE DISTRICT with state of the art bowling alley, , 4 movie screens, laser tag, and tons of good food and games for the entire family! Take a relaxing hike down to the lake and watch the ducks, geese, etc. or throw in your fishing pole and try your luck at catching dinner! Why drive to Broken Bow with the kids asking "Are we there yet?" cabin is only a short drive from the metroplex and Lake Texoma can't be beat!

Be sure to take a drive to Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge about 10 miles away. Hiking, tons of wildlife, guided tram some of the fun you can have at Hagerman. We even have a dog run so "Fido" can get a little exercise!

UPDATE: EXTREME SANDBOX as seen on Shark Tank is literally "around the corner" near the entrance to Tanglewood! This is the 2nd location in the check it out during your stay at Driftwood Cottage!

Enjoy shopping and dining galore in downtown Denison..a short 10 miles away. Visit the birthplace of President Eisenhower located in downtown Denison.

About Bill and Cindy Pratt

We love Lake Texoma and have been coming here all our lives. We now bring our grandchildren! Bill grew up in Minneapolis, but says he got to Texas just as soon as he could. He is quite a boating enthusiast, having lived in the Virgin Islands for several years where he crewed on several sailboats and won many prestigious sailing races and trophies. Cindy owns and operates a hair and nail salon in McKinney. We also own a wedding venue nearby and are active in the summer months making special memories with wonderful couples. Our lakehouse is located next door in the unlikely event you need our assistance. We love meeting new folks and pride ourselves on providing lodging that meets our strict standards.

Bill and Cindy Pratt purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Bill and Cindy Pratt chose Lake Texoma

This is one of the only cabins for rental with a lakeview from both inside the cabin and the outdoor deck during fall and winter. It is a very special place where you can put your feet up, watch the sunset, hike down to the lake and throw in your fishing pole, watch kayaks and yachts, sailboats and skiers. Don't be surprised if you catch a glimpse of a wild turkey or deer from the deck, a bluebird building her nest or feeding her young, and even a Pileated woodpecker. Nature is alive at this cabin!

What makes this cabin unique

You won't find many (if any) other cabins in this area with a handcrafted wooden canoe suspended from the vaulted ceiling. Enjoy our authentic crab trap brought back from New England, our trophy yacht flags we won back in our sailboat racing days in the Virgin Islands, our great wood burning fireplace, and all our quirkly signs. This cabin has Personality with a Capitol P, and we feel sure you will have a memorable getaway!

Great Weekend

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was as described and as seen in the photos. Everything was included so that all we needed was a toothbrush! The outside porch/deck was a great place to have meals and to hang out.

Great weekend holiday

  • 5 of 5

Cabin is very clean, cute and comfortable. My husband and I came up for the weekend for his birthday to go fishing on the lake. Thank you Bill and Cindy for a wonderful weekend. We loved sitting on the deck in the morning and enjoying coffee and breakfast. Would recommend with out hesitation.

Cute & Cozy Getaway Cabin

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice little getaway cabin for our family of four. The décor is quirky & fun. The size was just right for a cozy family long weekend. The fireplace in side is a nice feature. The fire pit outside was great for roasting hotdogs & making s'mores. Having Wi-Fi, TV & DVD Player was nice for those rainy days. The only reason we didn't it a 5 is it could have been a bit cleaner. The surrounding area is beautiful. Lots of birds & wildlife. It is close to Lake Texoma & Dennison for activity options. The owner Bill was a pleasure to work with. He responded to all our texts promptly & professionally. He communicated all we needed to know in a timely manner.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words. We take great pride in cleanliness for our guests, and are sorry your experience wasn't perfect. We always clean the cabin ourselves, but were on a short vacation before you arrived, and hired a highly recommended professional cleaning company to clean before you came. Thanks for letting us know...it will never happen again!
