While it might be easy to overlook Oklahoma and assume it’s just a land of tornadoes, you seriously will be missing out. The state is absolutely full of breathtaking landscapes, including lakes, wildlife refuges, and interesting sites such as museums.

But in all seriousness, one should definitely come rent one of these awesome cabins.

The towering beauty is perched high above the trees, and when on the deck, guests can peer all the way down to the lake. It’s pretty breathtaking. Guest should know that the stone and wood abode must be accessed by a more capable vehicle, such as an all wheel drive SUV. Pets are also welcome!
