Large 5 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Lake Front Home
About Linda Garrett
We purchased the property adjoining ours with dreams of opening an INN and building an RV park. It has taken a lot of work and determination to make our dream a reality. I wanted a place where families could come, relax, enjoy the lake and just reconnect with each other. I love to entertain, decorate, garden, go junkin' and act as 'camp counselor' during the holiday weekends. You will find antiques and horseshoes used to decorate throughout the resort. I love rusty tin and it is used on ceilings, walls or back splashes in the Bunk House as well as our other cabins. My next dream is to start hosting country weddings with lots of burlap, red bandannas, hay bales and big wagon wheels as decorations. I already have a beautiful, shady spot picked out on the lake shore for the ceremony and the reception area will be in the bunk house.

Why Linda Garrett chose Pryor
My original dream property was not large enough to fulfill all my wishes. So, when our neighbors put their property on the market, we scooped it up. So, I'm still living my dream, just on a bigger property. The INN has a great setup. I can rent just the downstairs area if I choose, as there is a separate entrance that can access the second floor. Downstairs walls are 8" thick block/rock, so you are never disturbed by noise from upstairs or outside.
What makes this House unique
I love the INN because of the great layout, fabulous lake views and there is plenty of space for everyone. The back wall, facing the lake, is a wall of windows. So no matter where you are, you will have a fabulous view of the water and wildlife. We love to watch the deer come across the lower yard in the evening to drink from the lake. We've seen red fox, beaver, raccoon, armadillos, possums, squirrels, and birds of all kinds and colors. My favorites are the Orioles and Cardinals. We have even seen wild hogs and deer swimming across the lake. (I didn't know they could swim either!) I also love the wrap around porch. There are swings, benches, and out of the way seating areas placed across the property that will just call your name and invite you to take a seat and enjoy the surroundings. Most comment on how quiet and peaceful it is, and I agree, unless there is a game of volleyball or softball going on!

Fishing was not real good
Great location with pool
We really enjoyed getting away from the bustle and spending time together in the pool.
Beautiful lake house
Great for a weekend at the lake
Short and sweet
One word. Perfect
Great place for a family reunion (ranged from 3 months to 84 years). Owner was very accommodating and on site for any questions or needs. Beds were comfortable and even the sleeper sofas had memory foam for extra comfort. Good size kitchen, fully stocked and two dining tables. Above ground pool was very clean. Pool was kind of awkward to get to, but it added a safety level for little ones to be on the deck and not get in the pool.
It was a pleasure hosting your family.
As a former pool manager/life guard, I'm all about pool safety. Having to go through two doors (lockable) keeps kids from getting in the water without an adult opening the doors.
Glad you all had a great time. Hope to see you again soon!
It is so quiet and peaceful most people don't leave. But, there are lots of antique/flea markets in the area, a golf course and casinos.
Tulsa (50 miles) has wonderful museums (Philbrook and Gilcrease, the Air and Space and Route 66), mansions, shopping, Hard Rock Casino and a great zoo. For upscale shopping and dining visit the Shops at Utica Square. Sax 5th Avenue, White House/Black Market, Ann Taylor, Pottery Barn and William Sonoma to name a few. Favorite restaurants are the Stone Horse, Wild Fork and P F Changs.
Jenks, just a few miles SW of Tulsa, is known as the antique capital of Oklahoma. The Oklahoma Aquarium** is there, as well as The Riverwalk for food and nightlife.
Claremore (30 minutes) is home to the Will Rogers** museum, Jim Davis Gun Museum** (largest collection of guns and weapons in the world), Rogers State University, Cherokee Casino and a revitalized main street full of antique, junk and collectible shops.
Pryor/Adair (20 minutes) hosts ROCKLAHOMA every Memorial Day, is home to GOOGLE's largest server farm, has lots of antique/collectible shops and lots of fast food stops.
Super Walmart and Homeland grocery store located in Pryor.
Salina (15 minutes) has a Dollar General, small grocery and my favorite burger joint. PIG N OUT has great burgers, onion rings and shakes. An order of french fries will feed two and their baked potatoes are a meal in itself. Don't order a large ice cream cone for the little ones, it will be as tall as their arm!
Locust Grove (25 minutes) has a Walmart Neighbor Market and the Country Cottage - a really good buffet.
Grove (35 minutes) has a Super Walmart, great golf course at Shangri-La, Har-Ber Village** museum, and lots of fun shops. Located on Grand Lake, the Pensacola Dam offers tours that are fun and educational.
Tahlequah (50 minutes) is my hometown. Cherokee Nation has its tribal headquarters there, as well as Northeastern State University and the Illinois River. The river has many float trip companies to get you out on a raft to enjoy the beauty of the bluffs and the scenic river.
Don't miss the Cherokee Heritage Center** to see how our ancestors lived and played, it is both historical and educational. Hear the details of the Trails of Tears, which relocated the Cherokees from North Carolina to NE Oklahoma.
If visiting in June or July, book tickets to see the River City Players**. The singers and actors are all students at NSU.
