Making small big - The Burnt Whiskey

West side of the Burnt Whiskey
After owning, managing, and personally cleaning our two cabins for seven years, a new addition to the family is on it's way. 2004 brought us Spokane, 2007 saw the creation of Autumn Pointe, and now 2014 is set to deliver our newest cabin, The Burnt Whisky. 

While we have learned priceless information about what potential customers want and expect, the search for seclusion and privacy trumps all other desires. Of course, a clean, well maintained property is high on the list as well. However, as more cabins are being built in the Beavers Bend Area, population density has been increasing. Many of the newer cabins are set on an acre or so, but often will sleep as many as 18 guests. As beautiful as these hand crafted masterpieces are, they often steal from the natural tranquility visitors are often trying to escape as they visit the Broken Bow area. After five years of observing and asking what guests are looking for, we came up with a secluded design located on two private acres. Now, add to that a maximum occupancy of two adults, and you have the perfect romantic getaway.

For many years, the Spokane cabin has set on four acres in Wildhorse Plantation with a private fishing pond located directly in the middle of the property. Now, two of those acres, adjoining and directly south of Spokane will be the new home for The Burnt Whiskey.
Large open private deck in front

The 1120 square foot cabin is set to be completed by early spring 2014. It features a private king-sized bedroom with an HD T.V. A gas burning fireplace will be located in the living area with HD programming as well. The  kitchen is full sized with all necessary appliances and utensils. A partial wrap around with a large private open aired deck will be the home to a new luxury hot tub.

The Burnt Whiskey will feature a deep soaking cast iron slipper tub on the second floor. We have dedicated this floor as an open aired spa, with screened in balconies on each side of the floor. The double french doors can be opened to allow the flow of fresh air and light through the spa. There is no loss of privacy with the doors open, allowing guests to bathe in comfort.

The physical location of the cabin is set high on a peak, creating elevated views from each side. A private toilet room, sink and vanity, and HD T.V. will also be located on the second story spa level. Downstairs will also have a clothes washer and dryer and high speed internet.  All properties located in Wildhorse Plantation are on a minimum two acres. The size of the land makes the development one of the most private and secluded in the Beavers Bend State Park area. Also, being located close to two miles east of HWY 259 eliminates busy road noise. We will add more photos as progress takes place.

Recent Autumn Pointe guest review, "This was our first time to Beavers Bend. We stayed in Autumn Pointe and we were so impressed! The cabin sat high above the pine trees, and has a very nice view. It had everything we would need or want during our four day family vacation. My favorite part was the hot tub, so relaxing after hiking all day. At night, it was even better, looking up at the stars and listening to nature. It was an experience to remember." You can read more Beavers Bend Log Cabins guest reviews.

Sitting on the deck of Spokane, taking advantage of the five person turbo jet hot tub, listening to the wind whisper through the pines will have you relaxing in no time. It truly creates an absolute feeling of complete peacefulness.
Recent Spokane guest review, "We really loved the layout and the peaceful feeling Spokane offers. The heat from under the cabinets is a great touch! We absolutely love the kitchen and are going to mimic its design in our new house we are about to build. We aren't much for two story settings on our own but Spokane is laid out so neatly with the loft. Waking up to great smelling breakfast was easy from up there! Also being located near the spillway is a huge plus for we were able to hike for hours along the river while not being too far from everything. The hot tub was used most regularly for relaxation and extreme privacy. If you're looking for a romantic getaway this is most definitely the place for you! We live in the city and really felt relaxed once we returned to the hustle and bustle. As a business owner, we really needed this, to say the least... We stayed for our 1 year anniversary and will be returning, no doubt." You can read more Beavers Bend Log Cabins guest reviews.

The View Just Got Better

Our Autumn Pointe cabin recently had some cosmetic surgery. Darin Maness and his crew at did a major overhaul of our high rising open air deck. They replaced  our older six inch round posts with 8 x 8 square posts. Sturdy flat railing replaced the older round railing, making maintenance and setting your drink down much easier. Darin then used iron rods as the spindles. The deck is now extremely sturdy and the the thinner iron spindles don't block as much of the view as the older wooden ones did.

Fishing Platforms at Beavers Bend State Park

Fishing the Lower Mountain Fork River in Beavers Bend State Park has always been a great experience from the novice to the most avid fisherman. The river turns and twists as it meanders throughout the park. Just a few months ago, the bridges that provide cars access over the river, were often used as fishing areas. These are small bridges, no more than eight to ten feet above the river and maybe 25 yards long. However, these bridges have now been upgraded with their own separate fishing platforms. They create a more spacious area to relax and throw your line in. These platforms also provide added safety, as there are no worries about vehicles driving behind you or your children. They are wheelchair accessible and provide places to set all of you equipment. Of course, anybody can still slip on their waders, find a spot downstream, and jump in the chilly waters that spill from Broken Bow Lake.  Just remember, a fishing license is required to fish in Oklahoma. For fishing license information, please visit

There are three ways to purchase a license:

1. Online! There is a $3.00 convenience fee to use the online application. you simply apply and print your license. You will not have to wait for your license in the mail. Purchase fishing license online.

2. License Dealer - There are over 700 license dealers spread across the state-- from sporting goods stores to bait shops, from convenience stores to large discount centers.

3. Non-residents may also order licenses directly from the Wildlife Department by calling (405) 521-3852. Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. till 4:30p.m. (Visa or MasterCard only. Allow for mailing time to receive your license).

Beavers Bend Powerhouse Fishing Area

Throughout Beavers Bend State Park, you will find endless fishing spots. The powerhouse fishing area is just one of those spots. Using the natural power of flowing water, this is where electricity is generated. So, if you hear what sounds like a tornado warning siren, the gates are getting ready to open and the water ready to flow. After a heavy rain earlier this week, the water was high and steady. This flow attracts fish and makes fishing this area exciting. Even if you don't have any luck with your rod and reel, just watching and listening to the whitewater crash along the sidewalk makes for a relaxing time. The powerhouse fishing area is located across the road from swim beach.

Chigger prevention the natural way.

Every year, some more severe than others, chiggers make their presence known. This is not done by chirping, jumping, or flying, since they do none of these. Rather, they make themselves known by burrowing themselves into your skin. By the time you realize you have been used as a new home for the itchy little scoundrels, it's too late. Chiggers hang out on grass and weeds and are virtually invisible to the naked eye. They will not make you sick or kill you. However, they can and WILL make you itch. In the Beavers Bend area, chiggers are abundant. Visitors should come prepared to prevent the miniscule mites from turning their vacation into a potential scratching marathon.

There are several ways to help prevent chiggers from attacking. If using harsh chemicals, such as deet does not appeal to you, there is a product called Best Yet. It is a 10% cedar oil and 90% hydrated silica. We have used it for several months with great success. Not only does it prevent chiggers, but mosquitos, fleas, ticks, and many more trouble makers. Whether you use a deet based repellant or a natural one, always wash off after being out in the woods or grass. Chiggers will hang out in your clothes for a period of time, so remember to shake or brush off your clothes, especially socks, prior to putting them back on. Preventing these pesky guys from chewing into your skin will be the best thing you can do on any trip to the outdoors.

Garden in the Pines

One year ago, a new garden appeared in Beavers Bend. It was the first of it's kind, at least for those involved in it's creation. The thought of growing food was never anything more to me than a way of understanding how we get fed. What we were being fed, though, never really crossed my mind. Other than worrying about fat or cholesterol, the life-cycle of a fruit or vegetable never merited any debate in what I chose to eat. Now it's different. Now I know about GMO's and pesticides. I do know the great distances our malnourished food travels as it slowly dies in transit. I know what we all thought was food, never was. So, we built a garden. Living in the Beavers Bend State Park area, just north of Broken Bow, OK, our climate is perfect for an outdoor garden the entire year (covered in the winter). We are also lucky enough to have a great organic farm just a few miles away at Honey Bear Ranch.

Honey Bear Ranch in Beavers Bend provides the best quality naturally grown products in the Broken Bow area. They raise their own vegetable plants in the greenhouse so they are sure that no chemicals tough them. Their gardens are fed with natural fertilizer provided by their calves, chickens and the compost brewed on their ranch.

Honey Bear Ranch often have free clinics to teach others how to grow food for their families. They believe it is important to pass on what they've learned from trial and error. They also believe it is wise for all of us to learn to be self-sufficient and to feed our bodies with naturally raised, locally grown food. Don't forget to visit Honey Bear Ranch while visiting Beavers Bend and meet Phil and Sandy. Check out Honey Bear Ranch's website at .
