About the property

This darling 700 square foot cottage house sits on 7 acres and is just 15 minutes from OSU campus and 3.5 miles from Lake McMurtry East. Get away from the hustle and bustle and come let us share our slice of heaven with you!

The stars are bright on a clear night and you never know when deer will come through. If you're a bird watcher there are plenty of beautiful birds to enjoy. Early in the morning rabbits tend to run about.

One bedroom, one bath, kitchenette, refrigerator, microwave, stove. Queen bed with SertaRest gel memory foam mattress topper. Queen hide a bed. Linens provided. Basic cookware, utensils and dish ware. Central h/a.

Stillwater is where the Land Run began and we have been having fun decorating the cottage with this in mind. We know you'll enjoy our place as much as we do. Take a look around if you're a sports fan and you just may see colors or other types of "shout outs" to other Big12 schools.

About Dawnett

Dawnett works for OSU and after commuting from Tulsa to OSU-Stillwater for three years, we stumbled upon this property while looking online one evening. We lived in Stillwater many years ago while Dawnett finished her accounting degree, we loved living here and when Dawnett got the chance to work for her alma mater doing the same job she was doing at The University of Tulsa, she threw her hat in the ring and ended up getting the job! It was just a matter of finding the right place to get us to move back. Stillwater is a great community!

We fell in love with this property the minute we laid eyes on it. We love to travel and have stayed at many bed and breakfast type places over the years. Johnny is a retired carpet guy and handyman and we would often sit in places and say "if this was our place, we would do _____". We are working on getting this place up to those standards we have set over the years. We are excited to share our place and to be your host.

Dawnett purchased this guest house in 2015

Why Dawnett chose Stillwater

The peace and quiet and the country atmosphere make you want to never leave! Check out time is noon, but we may allow later check out if it's possible. We won't come in and clean while you're here, if you want fresh linens each day you'll have to let us know. We're pretty laid back and our house is far enough away that you'll barely know we're here.

Absolute perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our stay! We needed a place to park our truck and livestock trailer (moving son from one place one day to another place the next day) for the night and there was plenty of parking. We loved the peaceful atmosphere but close enough to town that reminded us of home. Slept so peaceful and appreciated the decor and the details. Hospitality is the main goal of the owner and very much felt taken care of!! Will be our first choice if we need a place to stay in Stillwater again!!

Stayed during OSU graduation

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 1 night, which was so helpful. Even though the cottage is a bit far out of town, it wasn’t so far that is caused a problem. Dawnett notified us when the cottage was ready, a few hours early, and allowed us to enter and drop our things off before it was dark after graduation. Also very helpful! I also really appreciated her notice before arrival about all the pets but how much care they gave to keeping them from bothering us. They were not a bit of trouble and since we just aren’t animal people, we really appreciated that as well.

If you are a soft bed person, you will be very comfortable in the bed with the foam (I think, but very soft whatever it’s made of) topper on the mattress. The internet speed is pretty slow, but we reminded ourselves we were in the country and since we were only there 1 night didn’t worry about it. There was plenty of coffee provided to brew in the morning before we left, which was great. And there was a very nice selection of toiletries in the bathroom. The sitting area was comfy and I am sure the little kitchen would be fine for some light meals. We just didn’t need to use it since we were there such a short time.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay! The internet was slow for everyone out here last weekend. It's not always so slow but never can tell when in the country how it's going to be. The mattress topper is memory foam. I'm glad the animals, especially the dogs, weren't a bother. The cats tend to be cats and stay away from everyone.

Excellent in all respects

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with all aspects of our stay -- "10s" across the board; very spacious and comfortable. Quiet and serene just like promised!

Suggestion -- follow Dawnett's directions. Don't trust your mapping programs.

Nice, quiet and relaxing.

I stayed here with my two boys and they loved it too. They loved Sugar and Red as well. The home is well kept and clean. The owners were nice and friendly.

Comfy cottage in a quiet and peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! It was so quiet and a cute little place. Dawn is very responsive and willing to do what it takes to make it a perfect stay. We needed just a couple of small things and before I knew it she had been the store and brought them to us!! We look forward to our next trip to the cottage coming up soon. Thank you so much.
