The surrounding area goes on to offer trout fishing, hunting, golfing, Illinois river floating, hiking and state parks, allowing many different experiences and allowing for families to explore new adventures each time they return.

A comfortable getaway with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We are so thankful to Brian for allowing our family to stay at the Sunrise cabin on Lake Tenkiller for a fall outing to enjoy the beauty of the clear water lake and fishing. The cabin is spacious and well arranged for a large family gathering. The deck was a great place to enjoy the quiet evenings together as a family as well as enjoying the sunrise over the lake. The views were fantastic! Our only regret was that all of our sons could not make the trip with us, and that we could not stay longer, but that just leaves another opportunity to enjoy, hopefully in the spring of 2017.

Tenkiller is truly one of Oklahoma's crown jewels when it comes to clear water lakes and the Sunrise cabin is a wonderful place to enjoy it!

Summer Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed at this wonderful home for 3 years now!! We are booked for next summer already. We have stayed many different places on Tenkiller lake, however, none compare. The house, view, accessibility to the water, and neighborhood are awesome!! My teenage children summed it up best when they stated, "it is just like being home". The owners are the nicest and most caring people. Someone we now call our good friends. This would be a great place to stay anytime of the year!!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great location and excellent boat slip. Rooms were quiet so kiddos could sleep while adults stayed up to play cards. The view is amazing. Would definitely go again!

Sunrise Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My group really enjoyed our weekend. The Cottage was the right size and cozy. Very peaceful and relaxing. Talequah and Arkansas were good attractions we experienced. We had great communication with the owner, answered all our questions in a timely manner. We are ready to go back next summer and in the fall. No wifi or cable/satellite. Beautiful view of the cove, enjoyed the deck in the mornings and evenings.

Such a peaceful place!!

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 families (7 total) and had more than enough room. We also had 2 boats with us so the dock with 2 slips was awesome!! Only negative was no wifi. They don't have satellite or cable either, but we played board game to fill time while it rained. The large deck was the perfect place to go sit in the mornings and evenings. The cove is just beautiful, as is the entire lake!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Sunrise Cottage was an awesome place to stay. The home is roomy and everyone had their own space with privacy. We ranged in age from preschool to AARP, it was great for everyone! We all loved the deck in the mornings and evenings. The kitchen was spacious for cooking and made meal time easy. Tenkiller is a beautiful lake with lovely views and great places to eat and enjoy from the water. The owners were great and it was everything we hoped for and more. We will be back!!
