    My husband, mom, and 2 kids (10 and 13) made a quick trip to Oklahoma just before Christmas. This cabin was wonderful! Inside was everything we needed to be cozy and comfortable, and the holiday decorations were an added bonus. Outside, there was a little bit of everything (fishing, playground and tire swing, woods for the kids to explore, corn hole and horse shoes...). We (adults) loved the seclusion...relaxing and sitting by the fire pit all day watching the kids play and not having to worry about them getting hurt or in trouble. There was no need to go anywhere because this place has it all. The owner even stopped by shortly after we arrived to welcome us and see if there was anything we needed. Wifi and cell service are almost nonexistent, so print a paper map before you go. Although it is right off the main road, we had a little trouble finding it (no GPS), but a few miles down the road at Dollar General, they were very helpful. Also, the owner offered his landline in case of an emergency. We love the Broken Bow area, and even though this is a little further north in Smithville, it will definitely be a cabin we consider for future trips to the area. This was a 5 STAR trip for sure!

    The Briar Patch was perfect for our family getaway. The kids had so much fun on the playscape, tire swing, fishing in the pond and walking the property that we only left to do something one day. The house had everything we needed, beds were comfy, we really enjoyed our stay and will be back. Just a note, didn’t affect our stay but we could have been prepared better, we had no cell service at all and since the cabin doesn’t have WiFi no way to access directions on our phone. Walmart had maps, as well as the state park (free but not as detailed). It was otherwise very nice to take a break from our phones and fully enjoy the outdoors.

    We had a wonderful experience at the briar patch. The property was so clean and nice! Our daughter LOVED the playground and tire swing that were at the cabin. We also really enjoyed the pond that was included and caught several fish. FYI the owners provide fishing poles. We brought our own not knowing they were provided so I thought that would be good information to add in for someone else. I am very picky about the places we stay and I can definitely say this place exceeded my expectations!!

    Briar Patch cabin was absolutely beautiful! Everything was exactly as shown in the pictures online. We cooked and ate out on the back patio and around the fire pit and made smores at the fire pit as well. The view was beautiful! They have a tire swing amongst all the tall beautiful trees, that our daughter loved! There is a short walk to the pond, where myself and our kids caught our first fish! {catch and release}. Like most people we have a busy life and it was nice to sit and enjoy the view and listen to the birds and frogs :) The owners are very friendly and we would certainly love to go back one day!

    It is a beautiful property and the kids truly enjoyed all it had to offer. The only issue we encountered was a water filtration problem which caused the water from the sinks, bathrooms, and shower to smell really bad. We would had a much better stay if that problem had been fixed. The owners are great and came to introduce themselves which was really nice. Communication with them was seamless.

    This cabin would satisfy everyone’s needs. We went as a family of five and had an awesome experience. I could see this also being great for couples. The location is great because you can drive 30 minutes away to take in all that Beavers Bend has to offer yet far enough away that you feel the freedom of the outdoors. The owners are very attentive, helpful and genuinely want their guests to enjoy their stay.

    Everything was exactly as pictured. The kids loved it, it was an awesome place to stay. We did think the place was more secluded from highway, other houses, but it wasn't quite as secluded as we expected. The property is huge, though, and we enjoyed all of our stay! I didn't see a single other person. We did see a couple cars drive by the road, but the house is pretty far from the neighborhood road. The house was clean, comfortable, and we loved it. Porch swing was awesome, kids loved the playground, and we had a big fire in the fire pit.

We loved the firepit and the tire swing, my daughter played on the swing almost nonstop. My husband and I loved the pond, we fished and caught some perch which made my kids day! Our dog loved the extra space to roam and explore, it was nice to let her just go, she was worn out everyday from all the fun! We only left to grab a few things from the Dollar General which is right down the road. This trip was meant for relaxing and we did just that. My kids cried when we left, I think we will definitely be coming back to this place!
