Jay Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

'Turtlecove Treehouse' provides the perfect get away spot and quiet retreat space to rest, relax and rejuvenate. This cozy and comfortable studio apartment sits nestled among the tree tops with a breathtaking view of Grand Lake and the privacy of surrounding woods. The quiet, peaceful cove is perfect for swimming, floating lazily, or simply soaking in the sights and sounds of nature. The surrounding area will fill your senses, whether during a brisk hike or a quiet stroll along the shore.

Our location is beautiful in the fall and winter as well! We have a direct view of winter sunsets and enjoy viewing bald eagles and a variety of wildlife.

The Treehouse has a fully equipped kitchen and gas grill. A shoreline fire pit is available for guest use as well.

The simply furnished, yet modern space provides ample spaciousness and a sense of secluded privacy. You can sit and relax comfortably on the covered deck and watch the birds, turtles, herons, egrets, and the amazing sunsets.

Located in the Zena area near Sweetwater Cove, the space is equally enjoyed as a romantic couple's escape or a girl's getaway weekend.

The Treehouse is easily convertible to a wide open gathering space that is perfect for small group workshops and/or meetings.

About Carol LaRue

Carol and Bill LaRue have lived on this property full time for 10 years. The 'Treehouse' was built as a new separate addition in 2008 for the purpose of sharing the peacefulness and beauty of the location with others. Carol's experience and passion is in providing a variety of integrative wellness services that incorporate yoga, Pilates, meditation and personalized coaching that are offered to guests by appointment. Bill is a life-long nature lover and is a great resource in appreciating the surrounding wildlife and terrain.

Our sweet dog Dottie welcomes guests and will often visit you on the deck.

Carol LaRue purchased this studio in 2008

Why Carol LaRue chose Oklahoma

We love the healing peacefulness of our property. After using it as a weekend retreat for several years, we made the move here full-time as a conscious, more healthy life style change.

What makes this studio unique

While we have a view of the main body of Grand Lake, we are protected from a lot of noise and wave action in our quiet cove. Our view of sunsets are unsurpassed, and we love sitting on our deck any time the weather permits.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a special place with special people! The calm lake in the early morning, to the breath-taking sunsets. Everything was perfect, clean and neat. We came from our busy pace to loving the quiet peace of your surroundings.

Very Relaxing Place!

We spent most of our time fishing on the dock in the cove! We loved escaping the business of life and taking time to slow down and enjoy each other! Carol is a superb hostess!!

Couldn't have been better...

  • 5 of 5

My best friend and I met up here for a couple days of catching up and R&R. The space and place could not have been better. We basically had the little cove all to ourselves and spent several hours a day sitting in the water while my daughter fished. The tree house itself was spacious and perfect. We brought an air mattress with us for my daughter and there was plenty of room for it. It was quiet and perfect. Carol was super accomidating and wonderful. We would absolutely go back again and hope to some day.

Better Than Advertised!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic place to come and relax. The cove is wonderful and the room has a special charm that needs to be experienced. Bring food as there are no stores or restaurants close by. We plan to return. Carol and her husband are great and are available if you need help with anything.

Peaceful and refreshing

  • 5 of 5

A great experience! Carol was very gracious on the phone and even allowed us to chance our dates without a charge or hassle. The acommadations were lovely, clean and pretty. The property was beautiful and we fell in love with the "Treehouse". The access to the lake was perfect. We could sit on the dock or float in the cove and watch the turtles. The sunsets were spectacular and the view from the Treehouse was amazing. Lots of privacy but also easy to walk around and view other coves and pretty trees and other homes. Morning walks were great and the LaRue's dog Dottie was a sweet bonus. The LaRues were very gracious and friendly. It was a very relaxing, serene get-a-way.
