About Kathy or Rick Ary

Let us introduce ourselves! We are Rick and Kathy Ary and are from the Tulsa area. We love the lake and have made many great memories at many of the beautiful lakes in Oklahoma.

Kathy or Rick Ary purchased this house in 2014

Why Kathy or Rick Ary chose Afton

We chose this area because of its close proximity to everything. Need milk? It is right up the street. Decide to grill out tonight? Run down to Littlefields for the best meats you can find anywhere. Feel like golfing? Shangri La Resort is right around the corner. And fishing? Well you can fish for bass and crappie right off our dock!

What makes this house unique

Grand Lake is so beautiful and when we first laid eyes on our little Memory Maker Cottage in 2014, it was love at first site! We hope you love it and enjoy your stay as much as we do!

Kathy was very easy to work with, and the house was perfect for our family vacation. We will certainly look at this house next time we are at the lake.

Great place for a large family

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place for 12 people at Grand Lake. This home was there perfect place for all of us to enjoy three days at the lake. There were several places for us to gather-the living room, a huge screened room, a deck overlooking the dock, and a patio with grill and fireplace. The owners were very accommodating to our needs. The coffee maker did not work the first morning so I texted the owner. Within a couple of hours, someone brought a new one to us. I would definitely recommend this place for people needing extra room. They even had room for five cars, boat trailer and wave runner trailer.

We Loved our peaceful stay at the cabin. We will do it again soon!

  • 5 of 5

This is an Amazing Cabin. It had everything we want in a rented sanctuary. If I ever own a place this cabin would be a blue print in my mind. We were also close to The Marina, Airport, Horseback riding, restaurants and many other local excursions. Very Impressed. The owner Kathy was very Kind and accommodating as well. We definitely will stay here again in the near future.

Grand Lake Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this property very much. It was plenty of room for our family of 10. Our son, his wife, and their 3 children stayed in the cottage and it was great for them. Our daughter, husband, and 1 child stayed in the queen room and my husband and I slept in the twins. There are 2 large couches in the living area which is open to the kitchen. The sun room was delightful although it did get a bit warm in the afternoon/evening, you might consider taking an extra fan aimed toward the lovely dining table if you stay in the summer as we did. The location was perfect for us as it is very near Shangri-La which is where we rented a boat and jet skis (Sail Grand has been very reliable). It is just a couple of coves away from that marina. The children enjoyed swimming and fishing off the dock. The outdoor grill area is very nice. It isn't too far from a small market/convenience store. It was well stocked with towels, etc. We kept the portable icemaker going and it met our needs.

Moore, Ok

Very nice place for family vacation.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice house and great location for those who enjoy fishing, golfing, or just relaxation. Owners were very nice and great to work with. Loved the screened in porch/, living room, and master bedroom were very nice. Only reason I did not give it 5 stars was due to the lack of oudoor lighting for the porch and deck, but the owners did inform me beforehand that they were working on outdoor lighting that might not be completed by my stay. Overall great experience and we will definitely be back again!
