Older, partially renovated 3 bdrm cabin, perfect for a family getaway. However, we have several couples that enjoy having a little extra space that mention the 'cozy factor', so it's great for two as well. The one-level cabin has had various additions over the years, so it has a bit of a quirky look to it. However, it has knotty pine interior, lots of windows as well as french doors, and you feel like you are on top of the world when looking out over the lake and hills. It has the appearance of a mobile home from the outside, but actually it isn't. It has the feel of a traditional lake cottage. There is nothing fancy about it.
The living room has a leather sectional and large older TV with Dish Network and DVD/BlueRay with hookups for most gaming systems using the old fashioned connections (analog). There are two smaller TVs that have HDMI hookups. There are puzzles, games, and a few movies. French doors open to the back deck and backyard with firepit. There is a beautiful cedar dining table for 6 in the open floor plan, and a wood stove insert with glass doors. Wood is provided. There is a reading chair in the corner by the woodstove.
The spacious Master Bedroom has a king-sized log bed and new memory foam mattress. It also has several windows and french doors that open out to the deck. There is a comfy old (kinda ugly) chair for relaxing and a 32 inch flat screen TV with DVD/Blue Ray in an entertainment center. No Dish service in this room.
The 'Shabby Chic' bedroom has a new queen mattress and is decorated in a vintage theme. It faces the front of the house.
The 'Kids' Room' is a renovated sunroom with two twin beds with memory foam toppers, lots of windows to view the lake, and french doors that open to the front deck. There is a TV, Wii, and Playstation 2 with a few games and toys. Younger children are welcome but there are many small objects that might pose a choking hazard, such as Legos. The beds will sleep adults under 6 feet tall.
The kitchen is small with newer appliances and the common cooking utensils/pans. It's a one-person kitchen. The cabinets are simple and older. Coffee, tea, and creamer are provided along with a few spices.
One small bathroom with tub/shower. Linens for indoor use are provided. Please bring beach towels and lawn blankets.
The laundry room is at the end of the house with a separate outside entrance. Laundry soap is provided.
There is a large deck in the front of the property (non-lake side) with BBQ and dining table. There is a propane grill and a charcoal grill. Propane is provided but bring charcoal if you prefer that.
There are two circular driveways, with plenty of room for boat parking.
We have a strict no-pet policy. Smoking is permitted outside away from open windows.
We also have 'The Little Cabin' for rent next door, perfect for 2. There is another fire pit between the properties as well.
Although the two cabins are not wheelchair accessible, they are both on one level and are fairly easy to access for those with a few physical challenges. We have a shower chair available upon request.
We've had several people ask about having weddings on the property, but unfortunately we aren't able to handle large gatherings. Our insurance has restrictions, and we don't have the bathroom facilities.
We structured our pricing to make it cheaper when fewer than 6 stay. Our biggest costs are for cleaning and linens. The only way we can keep our costs down is to charge more for a full house. We also time our cleaning around the expected number of beds to change for both cabins, and last minute surprises are expensive and delay turn-around. Please help us so we can try to keep our costs as low as possible by booking for the correct number of guests.
There seems to be a glitch in the homeaway/vrbo notification system so we are not getting all reservation requests when they are booked. We do get Inquiries via text so maybe do an Inquiry first and then go ahead and book. If you don't hear from us in a few hours then call because we probably didn't see the request. Other owners are having the same trouble. Also, consider the insurance to cover last minute cancellations.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

The Tahlequah area and home to the Cherokee Nation is full of historical and outdoor activities. The Cherokee Heritage Center is about 15 minutes away. The Pettit Bay Campground and Marina is a mile away. The Pettit Bayside Resort and Piddle's Restaurant is just below our property and is a favorite hang out spot on the weekends.

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: Patrick and Tisa live in the Tahlequah area. Patrick is a retired police officer and Tisa works for Cherokee Nation.
Why the Owner Chose Park Hill, OK, USA:
We initially purchased this property to be able to cut down some trees in order to open up the view for the Little Cabin. Before we knew it, we were renovating both cabins to rent out as vacation homes.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Both cabins offer incredible views of the lake and hills. Whenever anyone walks into The Big Cabin, they always walk to the windows and stare out at the panoramic views. There is nothing fancy about the place, but it makes you instantly relax.
