About Linda Garrett
After 25 years traveling with the Air Force, I retired in 2002. My dream was to have a place on the lake and host travelers/families. I bought the property in 2002 and started working/building to that end. We built a Cabin in 2013. Added a Victorian Cottage in 2014 and we finished remodeling the Guest House in May of 2015. We purchased the adjoining property 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 properties. We have started hosting country weddings with lots of burlap, red bandannas, hay bales and big wagon wheels as decorations.We have a beautiful, shady spot picked out on the lake shore for the ceremony and the reception area can be in the bunk house or pavilion. Come and share our dream and RELAX!
Linda Garrett purchased this House in 2002
Why Linda Garrett chose Adair
I love the park like setting. It is very shady and peaceful. After 25 years of living on or near Air Force bases, I didn't want to hear any more jets, fighters or sirens. I wanted quiet, and I found it here. When we added 800 sq ft to the Guest House, I wanted lots of space for families to spread out in a little footprint. Being poolside offers lots of advantages. You can watch the kids from the shade of the screened porch and still be with the non-swimming family members. And since I love to decorate, I really had fun with this property. All the comforts of home are available for you here in our little slice of paradise.
What makes this House unique
The Guest House offers fabulous views of the lake 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 screen porch. Horseshoe INN and Campground is great for large groups and family reunions as well. With RV spaces, camping site, the INN and Bunk House there is room for everyone. 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!

Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.
We actually stayed in The Lodge. We were upgraded when the guest house was unavailable. It was amazing, quiet, adorably decorated. The beds were comfy, cozy. All we needed to bring was food, everything was furnished. Ms. Linda is sweet and very accommodating. We had a wonderful stay and already planning next year's trip!
Excellent Accommodations at Horseshoe Inn
Due to flooding we were unable to stay at the Pool Side Guest House but the owners were very generous and relocated us to The Lodge. Excellent accommodations and owners were extremely friendly and accommodating. If we were to require lodging in the future at Lake Hudson we would definitely use them again and would highly recommend them to family and friends.
The Lawson Family Reunion
We had a family reunion and rented the inn and guesthouse for the week of July 4. The properties were nice and Linda and Fred were gracious hosts. It was hot and humid and oh my goodness...the June bugs and May flies were horrendous. None of which were avoidable. We had an unfortunate accident with a mirror falling and cutting my 4 year old nephews little face. Medical care was not too far away, but a pharmacy to fill the Rx was. Unfortunately it was only the second day of our reunion so the poor little guy had to stay inside for most of his trip. Overall, we had a nice time together and his cute little face is on the mend. Thank goodness for air conditioning and pools. The lake was beautiful, however I think everyone would have enjoyed a beach area to relax and let the children play in the sand and water and maybe a small fishing boat to rent.
The Lawson Family July 4-9, 2016
It was a pleasure to host the Lawson family reunion. Yes, it is hot in Oklahoma in July. Thank goodness for great air conditioning and two pools!
The May flies were extremely thick year. Unfortunately, we can not control nature.
We do have a pontoon boat and kayaks available.
Oklahoma does not have sandy beaches. I have had sand hauled in twice to try and .make a sandy area. However, it just gets washed away. Our shoreline is rock lined in most places to keep the shoreline from deteriorating. There is one place that can be accessed for lake play.
Thank you for your business.
Iit 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.

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!
