About the property

Our beautiful 2400 sq. ft. log cabin on 5 acres is secluded and surrounded by hundreds of acres of horseland. Cabin sleeps 12 comfortably with plenty of room upstairs for extra sleeping bags. We're about 5 minutes from Winstar Casino and ABOUT 20 MINUTES FROM LAKE MURRAY STATE PARK . We have two bedrooms downstairs, one with a queen size bed and one with a full size bed. In our living room downstairs we have a beautiful handmade leather queen sized sleeper sofa. We have a large open loft room upstairs known as the 'Kids Kingdom,' which has a leather queen sized sleeper sofa and two twin day beds with pull-out trundles. And bring your camera! It's a great place for family pictures! Wifi is fast and basic cable upstairs and down with Netflix, Amazon, and a ton of DVDs.

Please note: You must be at least 25 years of age to rent our cabin.

Search "The Cunningham Cabin" on Facebook. I try to post recent photos, upgrades to the cabin, cool wildlife and beautiful sunsets.

About Tara Cunningham

We are the Cunninghams. We have two children ages 10 and 5. We love going out to our cabin to relax and rejuvenate. We currently live in Northlake, TX. I am a piano teacher and my husband is a fireman.

Tara Cunningham purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Tara Cunningham chose Marietta

We lived in Irving and were desperately looking for something out in the country. Well we found it and although it is a lot of work we enjoy it.

(We moved closer to the cabin when it became clear that other people would like to use it too. We live about 40 minutes away from it.)

What makes this cabin unique

I've always loved log cabins. When we had a chance to buy this one, we jumped at it. We've put our blood, sweat, and tears into fixing it up and continue to do so. We love the views from every window, the quiet and we love that our kids can run out the door to play.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Samantha Wilson

The Cunningham Cabin was absolutely beautiful with tons of open space for the children to run and play, they had set up a little baseball field for our boys once they know we were going for a baseball tournament... our children loved it! There was plenty of room inside the cabin for everyone and the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed which was nice! The cabin is a little secluded back away from everything so we had the privacy we wanted. Tara and her husband were very kind and we're there for us at any time we needed anything.

We lived on our ranch when our children were young; the Cunningham Cabin reminded them of their childhood. We enjoyed the tranquil setting! While we sat on the front porch, we watched the neighbor's cows and horses, listened to the wind, and reminisced.

The owner quickly answered all of our questions about the rental.

We had a wonderful time at this "unique cabin in the woods."

Over all it was good

  • 4 of 5

Owners were available and and responded in a timely manner. We had a few suggestions for the cabin and they were very willing to listen and take note. The fireplace was so cozy, with plenty of room to spread out and great space to gather for cooking, eating and playing games. Kitchen could use some updates. Thanks Tara and Chad for sharing your cabin with our family. We made some very good memories there in spite of the bad weather.

We had a really fun family Christmas celebration at the Cunningham Cabin. Plenty of room to sit and visit, big kitchen with lots of bar space and dining table for everyone. Beds were comfortable. Highly recommend staying there.

Amazing and beautiful cabin! Lots of memories made. Great family fun!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a family mini-vacation after Christmas and all my husband requested was somewhere wintry and a log cabin. And the Cunningham Cabin was PERFECT!! The cabin has plenty of space and bedrooms for our kids to choose from...and so many comforts of home (did I mention the cabin has Wi-Fi, Netflix, dish tv and a Playstation). The kitchen was fully stocked with all the cooking necessities that you could think of and again, plenty of room to either sit at the table or the bar area. Our family went on so many fun adventures (hiking, smores, etc) during the day and in the evening enjoyed movies and a fire in the fireplace. We defintely want to come back and highly recommend it! Beautiful experience!

P.S. Our girls fell in love with the neighbor's dog, Chew.

Beautiful Country Home

  • 5 of 5

I may just be a city slicker from Los Angeles, but a few decades ago I grew up in Oklahoma. My wife and 2 children had never been to Oklahoma before, so I was searching for a place where we could get out of the city, and they could experience the amazing Oklahoma countryside I grew up on. I'm so happy we found the Cunningham Cabin! My 5 year old son and I explored the property, played horseshoes, and taught him to shoot arrows with a bow. My wife and I enjoyed a glass of wine at sunset on the gorgeous balcony. Many memories were made that we'll never forget! Thanks for letting us stay!

The cabin is wonderfully quiet and relaxing. Yet, we are just 10 minutes from Winstar Casino, the largest casino in the world. We are about 15 minutes from Gainesville, TX which has a movie theatre, outlet shopping, restaurants and a Wal-Mart. And our favorite place to go is Beautiful Lake Murray for swimming, boating, horseback riding and hiking. Lake Murray is about a 15 minute drive from the cabin.
