About Donna Pope

John and I moved to Tishomingo with our two children (now grown) many years ago after he finished his tour in the military. John was raised nearby and when we moved here I fell in love with the people, lakes, rivers and woods. Having grown up on the bare plains of South Dakota, I was delighted to move to such a beautiful area. John is retired from his pallet building business, and enjoys watching television and talking to his two dogs. Donna is a Cosmetology Instructor and manager of a beauty college. She is looking forward to retiring soon and spending more time spoiling great grandchildren, gardening and meeting visitors.

Donna Pope purchased this chateau / country house in 1981

Why Donna Pope chose Tishomingo

We fell in love with the property and built the home so we could enjoy being in the country. It is located one mile by road to Lake Texoma and only nine miles to Blue River, which makes it ideal for fishing, hiking and swimming. The woods are full of wildlife, birds, wild grape vines and dogwoods that add beauty to the ever changing seasons. When John and I moved to this area we found the people to be friendly and down to earth. We can go fishing, hunting or hiking close by and we love it!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

This home is peaceful, quiet and homey. You will enjoy natural spring water as you bath in the two person jetted tub in the John Wayne decorated room. Located deep in the woods it has large rooms and a balcony to kick back and enjoy nature. Listen to the sound of the waterfall at the koi pond while you enjoy eating on the balcony. A full kitchen and dinning provide plenty of room for the whole family. Each room is cheerfully decorated with photos of western heroes. country western singing stars Country Music Star Miranda Lambert has a store, The Pink Pistol in Tishomingo. Many visitors enjoy the one mile hike to Lake Texoma to fish or swim. Blue River provides trout fishing in the spring and fall and other game fish during the summer. Sipokni West (old west replicated town) and Fort Washita (confederate fort and Ntl Historic site) are close by. The White House (listed on the Natl Hicorical sites) is the former home of the first govenor of the Chickasaw Indian nation is just 2 miles away. The Capital of the Chickasaw Nation and old council house and museum are located in Tishomingo four miles away from this vacation home.

The 1907 Chickasaw Bank and museum (Natl Historic site),Murray State College is also located in Tishomingo .Casino and live concerts are about thirty five miles away. Many guests seeing the wildlife at the National Wildlife Refuge nearby. Turner Falls and the Chickasaw Center and boating and water sports are just a short drive away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The following is a letter to the Capital Democrat newspaper, Tishomingo, Okla. on April 18, 2013 from Daren and Mary of Kansas and is posted with their permission.

.

We celebrated our 19 wedding anniversary in your community this past weekend. We had a great time visiting with your local people, shopping in your stores, and eating some really good food.

We were very pleased to find that your local airport runway was newly resurfaced. This allowed us to fly directly into Tishomingo instead of landing in a nearby town and commuting in. We appreciate the value your community is putting into general aviation.

We hope that you are able to continue to implement improvements in your local airport. What will attract pilots is a good restaurant and a form of transportation to get there once landed. This most often is found in a courtesy car located at the airport for the pilot use.

You already have the good restaurants. We think we ate the best BBQ we have ever had at one location, and the homemade salsa at another was fantastic. I think you would be surprised at how much more your airport would be used if there was some type of transportation offered up landing. (A restroom would be great too!)

We would also like to say "thank you" to Donna Pope for her wonderful hospitality. Her accommodations and willingness to arrange transportation for us played an instrumental role in us choosing your community as our destination for the weekend.

We were bless with a perfect anniversary weekend. Thank you.

Filmmakers Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
While filming our western movie back in April, some of our cast members were lucky enough to have stayed here at the Oklahoma Hills Vacation Home! Donna, the owner, could not have been nicer and she really cares that you really enjoy your time there. I would most highly recommend this property to anyone for any length of stay. Without a doubt we will be using their location again and again! So many places to sight see around this area....so filmmakers, or really just anyone...if you're looking for lodging, you must contact Donna. Being in the film industry, this is a fantastic place for producers or cast members to stay!

Here for the Water

  • 5 of 5
We were up in Tishomingo for a couple of weeks of research and needed a great place to stay. We picked this property both for the setup of the house and the near location to our project.
We were there for 11 days and could have stayed for a year. This is a great house, secure private location and lots of room to play and have a great time while in this area.
We grilled steaks for some visitors we had, chilled and enjoyed the great outdoors while we were there for work. i would recommend this location to anyone unless they wanted it at the same time we are in the area. i would want first call in thats case. we will be back!!!

Owner's Response: Oh, Frank, you are a riot! Am so pleased that you enjoyed yourselves and that you did a review. It was our great pleasure having you as guests! We plan on adding three new cabins over by the bass pond by spring and do hope we get the opportunity to have you and your team stay again in the near future. Take care and have a great summer-- until then, thanks!

We celebrated a milestone birthday with just the "girls". Had a great time. We were able to sit and visit, watch movies and then went into town to shop and eat. Thanks, Donna, for checking in on us to make sure we had everything we needed.

Owner's Response: I am delighted that you had a great birthday celebration and a wonderful time visiting with one another. Tishomingo is a quaint small town with wonderful little shops and charming individuals. I am glad you got an opportunity to visit our "Mayberry RFD", to quote Miranda. We loved having you stay in our vacation home and hope you will get an opportunity in the near future to visit one of the cabins that we are in the process of building. Think you will find it enjoyable too. Thanks again. Donna

The Best Place to Stay in Oklahoma!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at this wonderful house in Southern OK, but it certainly won't be our last! The house is immaculate, beautifully decorated w/ western themes, and very roomy. This time only my husband and I slept at the house, but the last time we had more family staying there, and, even this time, we had several relatives and friends visiting in the evening. The large kitchen and comfortable living room made this very doable. The owner could not be nicer and really cares that you enjoy your visit. I would heartily recommend the property to anyone - my husband calls it his third home. While we didn't have the youngsters w/ us this time (they were in school) , we did the last time and they enjoyed the big yard and sandlot. There is also a Jungle Jim and a pretty pond. We were so busy visiting my husband's family in the area that we didn't play pool or ping pong, but we will next time!
