About Janae Smucker

My husband and I hold full time jobs as well as parenting our large and busy family. We relish ‘getting away’ from our hectic life style to a place of peace and quiet to enjoy one another and the simple pleasures in life. The cottage offers our family a place where we can re-connect. That is why we have this lake home! We would like to share it with you for the same reasons and hope your time will be greatly enjoyed at The Gathering Cottage!

Janae Smucker purchased this house in 2009

Why Janae Smucker chose Afton

We bought this lakeside stone cottage as it has been a charming place for our extended family to ‘come away’ for fun and refreshing for years. We have enjoyed fishing, boating, inter-tubing, canoeing, swimming from the dock and just relaxing with the lovely lake view. It has been a place of enjoyment, and ‘peace of mind’ for our family for some time. We are sure you will feel the same and are glad to share it with you!

What makes this house unique

Fall and Winter Updates: FISHING AND HUNTING ARE BIG THIS WINTER!!!!

Fishing; Black Bass-year round. Winter can be great if the lake is not muddy.

Crappie-October till June. Summer months are usually tough

White Bass-January thru November. We always catch the biggest ones in January and February, spawners in the river in March and April, great fishing in the main lake all summer, points in the fall.

Catfish-year round. Big Blue Cats over 30 lb., November, December, and March

Spoonbill snagging- December, January in the lake; February, March, April in the river

Hunting

Deer hunting is one of the most popular pastimes for Sooner hunters. In fact, these days are golden if you hunt deer in our state; our deer numbers are exploding and the quality of our bucks gets better each season! A national deer-hunting publication recently rated Oklahoma as one of the Top 10 states for whitetail hunting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent a week at the Gathering Cottage and it was AMAZING! We enjoyed the lake front view and lush greenery we were surrounded by. We were able to get in some swimming off the dock, enjoyed the pool table and it was spacious enough for our family of 11 to have their own bed! The yard was big in the front and back and we were able to set up a volleyball net in the front and enjoy smores in the firepit in the back. We were short a pool ball when we arrived but the owner was quick to get ahold of us and have someone come and replace it! We really enjoyed our time at Grand Lake and even got to Monkey Island where we were able to rent a pontoon boat and explore it more by water! Over all, this has been a great vacation spot for our family of 11! The Gathering Cottage is a great “home away from home”.

Owner's Response: Dear Family of Eleven, So glad to hear that you enjoyed your vacation and the cottage worked well for your family. Thank you for leaving it so nicely when you checked out and for letting me know of the missing pool ball and lamp not working. It is so helpful when guests alert me of things so that I can quickly get them replaced or repaired. You were wonderful guests!

A remarkable place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to stay. Owner has provided every convenience possible to make your stay great from kitchen to bathroom. The outside area is great for gathering around bbq grill and tables. Sitting around the fire pit making s’mores makes a relaxing end to a fun filled day.

Very spacious and well stocked home. Loved there was no carpet!Accomadated our holiday family gathering of 9 adults, 4 children perfectly. Unfortunately it was too cold to use the outdoor acomadations. But the boys did have success duck hunting. Janae was great host & pleasant to communicate with. Hoping to return with better weather. Highly recommend!!

Cristmas at the lake.

  • 5 of 5

Arrived to find a 10 ft. tall Christmas Tree lit and decorated. Sure improved what we had planned. Having all ages with us, we enjoyed the 2 separate areas. We were able to find some quiet time even with all the excitement. House was clean and furnishings were nice.

Lots of room.
