About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

A lovely hideaway nestled in the treetops of the quiet Big Hollow cove on grand lake of the Cherokees with a panoramic view of the water.

The Anniversary Cottage sits on a hillside 400 feet from water access. The Anniversary Cottage is a 1 bedroom with a sleeping loft that will accommodate up to 6 people, but is perfect for a couple’s get-a-way.

The Anniversary Cottage is a quiet, cozy, luxurious get-a-way to relax in with all the comforts of home. Will sleep 6.

Whether you are an early-bird enjoying the early morning light over the water & the music of the morning birds or a night-owl taking pleasure in the sounds of the night & the moon reflecting on the lake, you will appreciate lounging on the covered deck soaking in all the sights, sounds and smells of nature.

The bath would compete with any 5 star hotel, with thick thirsty towels. It has a jetted tub for two. If that isn't to your liking, the shower will accommodate two also.

Lounge on the 16 x 36 swim platform watching the ducks play in front of you and seagulls dive or maybe catch a glimpse of the resident bald eagle.

Our cove is a favorite spot for fisherman.

We have a 16 x 36 swim platform as well as a dock available for tying up your boat that. You may fish off the dock or if you enjoy taking a dip, you can take a dive off the dock and float around for a leisurely afternoon in the water.

The Anniversary Cottage is located in Big Hollow Cove about 1/4 mile off main lake. Big Hollow is a no wake cove on the Southeast side of the lake. Saddle Island is at the entrance to Big Hollow Cove. Sweet Water Hollow & Serenity Point are to the northeast of Big Hollow. Johnson Hollow & Goat Island are to the west of Big Hollow. Drowning Creek is further west & the closest major cove.

Property is wonderful, hosts are great and lake is awesome. A great place for relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 days and had tons of fun. We were looking for a quite, peaceful vacation and found it in The Anniversary Cottage. We did lots of boating, fishing and just hanging out at the house enjoying the beautiful view and surroundings. We took a day trip to Eureka Springs which was a nice drive and lots of great shopping. If you have the time, visit the Coleman Theater in Miami OK. The theater is beautiful and the production we saw of Little Mermaid was very well done and entertaining.

The house is well stocked and was very comfortable for our family of three. The boat dock is great. If you are bringing a boat, be sure and let the owners know as the drive is steep to the house. The owner will meet you at the boat ramp so you don't tow your boat on the steep hills.

We had a great time and would recommend this home. A definite 5 star rating.

Beautiful & secluded - the perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was immaculate and every need taken care of - it is thoughtfully appointed. It felt like we were in a lovely treehouse with nature views out of every window. We were there to celebrate our anniversary with rest and relaxation, to set aside the “busy-ness” of life and just enjoy being together - the Anniversary Cottage delivered. Such a delightful stay!!

Charming .. Restful .. Worth it!

  • 5 of 5

What a refreshing weekend away this was! Bob & Linda are the kindest. They are nothing short of the hardest workers who have gone above and beyond making this cottage a beautiful retreat. They have by far the most beautiful place to stay in all the cove. There is no need for a sound machine because nature is tranquil!

We loved the Cottage and Quiet Cove. We will definitely visit again.

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I enjoyed a couple of nights stay at this wonderful Cottage. We took our boat and Bob the owner and builder of this solidly built cabin was so helpful, he even helped us launch our boat at a nearby ramp. The cabin was so thoughtfully built. We felt so relaxed in the cabin. I enjoyed watching the wild life around the lake from the dock. The cove is centrally located on the lake so exploring most parts of the lake was available. We took advantage of the dock offered to us an left our boat in the water the whole time. Just a wonderful place to spend with my wife. We hope to bring our kids later in the summer. Very Happy With Our Stay. Greg and Kimmie

Quality Accommodation by the Lake

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is in a secluded setting. No, not solitary like a hunt cabin in the woods, but solitary like a cottage in a family compound. Three houses share a very nice, quiet piece of land by the water, a well-maintained swim dock and boat dock, and there isn’t a jet skier to be seen. They do, however, have a canoe you can paddle around the cove, which we very much enjoyed.

The linens were wonderful, the house immaculate, and the small kitchen amazingly well equipped.

Great weekend stay for a couple or a young family. We would happily recommend to friends.
