Oklahoma House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)


This lakefront home sits atop a beautiful bluff in Horse Creek Cove, with soaring trees and a million-dollar view. Enjoy the privacy this 1.3-acre home gives you while enjoying easy access to your private dock (with boat lift), three sea doo slips as well as a swim dock. This home has a 150 feet of lake front with views from almost every room.

This pristine cove on Grand Lake is large enough and deep enough for all your boating activities (sea dooing, boating, skiing, tubing) yet secluded enough that it feels like your own private oasis. The water is average 20 feet deep off dock so fishing is great. A full-service marina is within a 5 minute boat ride where you can rent boats as well.

The home has an open concept for the kitchen, living and dining so the cooks don't feel left out. The living room is large and able to accommodate many people with two sofas, two club chairs and ottoman and 47 inch LCD flat screen television with bose surround sound.

All three bedrooms have pillow top queen beds and one of the sofas pulls out to a queen as well. All bedrooms have 32 in LCD flat screen televisions with blue ray dvd players. We also have two twin air matresses (good for children only). Maximum 12 people.

The front of the home is tree lined with a park like setting. The back of the house faces the lake. There is a deck that is over 80 feet long. Half the deck is covered and the other half is perfect for sunning. It has a table and chairs that sits 6, a fire pit that sits 8 and two lounge chairs that all have amazing lake front views. Off to the side of the deck is a picnic table for extra dining seating.

The dock has a covered boat slip with boat lift that is 20 feet long. No boats over 22 feet are allowed to tie to dock. As well as no pontoon, tripoon or sail boats are allowed to tie to dock.

Conveniently located 50 minutes from Tulsa and 45 minutes from Joplin. It is a 15 minutes to Grove which has many restaurants, antique shops, boating stores, super walmart as well as many activities and festivals during the year.

Please take time to review our 'location' map as we have mapped out for you many activities, restaurants, marinas, shopping, boat launch and helpful information to utilize during your stay.

About Kimberly Faulkner

We want your stay to be as comfortable and easy as possible. We don't want you to have to spend hours of research trying to figure out where to go eat, shop, rent boats or any other activities you wish to do. So we have done it for you. We mapped out and described over 55 sites including addresses, hours of operation and phone numbers. Everything listed is 15 miles or less with the exception of 7 which are all less than 20 miles. With the vast majority of them being less than 10 miles. There are activities listed most people don't even know about. Please take time to review our map. If you look under the Dollar Store icon there is 'view guide' in blue. Click on this and you will see all 55 items on the location map along with full descriptions. Although these are far from the only things to do at Grand Lake, they are some of our favorites.

Kimberly Faulkner purchased this house in 2005

Why Kimberly Faulkner chose Oklahoma

This home is located on the shores of beautiful Grand Lake O'the Cherokees, situated in the foothills of the Ozarks. This area is blessed with natural beauty. As soon as I walk in the front door all my stresses are forgotten and a feeling of peace takes hold of me.

What makes this house unique

Location, Location, Location. This home sits 5 miles from Interstate 44, 3 miles from Historic Route Highway 66, 4 miles from Highway 59 and 4 miles from highway 85 keeping your driving times at a minimum. This unique location sits right in the middle of every thing to do and every where to go. As you can see from the detailed map below. If you are looking for breath taking views, ours has the best bar none. The home sits on an acreage with beautiful tall pine trees and gives you a lot of privacy and tranquility. It is one of the few coves left on the lake that still feels private, pristine and yet is large enough and deep enough to do all your boating activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting my family stay at your amazing lake home. The views were absolutely stunning and wonderful to wake up to. The covered back porch was my favorite as I could watch my family on the lake while I layed back in a chaise. Your home was adorable, beautifully kept with a very french country feel. We also enjoyed your dock as we only had to launch our boat ONCE and then kept it safely on the dock until we were ready to leave... how refreshing! The dock was very large (larger than I thought) and my husband and I loved sitting in chairs down there while our children played.

We had a really great time, plenty of room to stretch out and relax, the home was very nice and clean, the stairs down to the dock take some getting used to, there is a lot of them, so take it slow. yes we will recommend this to others

the directions were right on and I am not a navigator so thanks for the layout, everyone was great when we had questions

The Girls at Faulkner's Landing

  • 5 of 5

Five of us met at Faulkner's Landing for a 5-day getaway. This was the perfect location for us to meet and stay. The house was quite comfortable and well taken care of. It was easy to unload and load all our items for our stay and everything is all on one level. The deck is fabulous, and this is where we spent the majority of our time watching the birds and wildlife in the area. The table on the deck is large enough to accommodate all of us with quite comfortable seating and a great view. However, when it rained one day, we spent all our time inside watching tv. We found we were comfortable and quite relaxed in the furniture, and truly enjoyed our "movie day".

For sleeping, all the beds are quite comfortable. We all slept very well. The rooms of the house are situated just right so that some can stay up and watch tv without disturbing the sleep of the others. The linens are of good quality as well.

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything one might need to prepare meals and snacks. We thought bringing our own towels would be an issue, however, we quickly realized it was not at all. In fact, we have decided to bring our own towels with us on all our yearly trips. The dishwasher worked very well, as did the garbage disposal. Preparing meals was a cynch in the Faulkner Landing kitchen. Plus there was plenty of room at the dining table for all of us to sit and enjoy meals together.

We had a couple of issues at the house when we first arrived. We called upon Mr. Hayes, the property manager, to help us out, and he was there in a jiffy to make everything alright. It was nice to know we could count on someone to take care of our property needs quickly so we could continue to enjoy our vacation.

Overall, I would say we had a wonderful experience at Faulkner's Landing. We plan to visit there again. Thank you, Kimberly and Mr. Hayes, for an enjoyable girl's vacation. Jacki R.

Peacefull and Secluded

  • 4 of 5

The Lake Views are spectacular. House was warm and comfortable. We had bad weather, 2 days of wind and rain so use of the outside was limited. Would have like to do more walking and outside activities. Just the time of year we picked to visit.

FANTASTIC family get-away with a great view of the lake

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an extraordinary time visiting Grand Lake and staying at this property. The view from the back porch and even throughout the windows and sliding glass doors throughout the house and bedrooms is amazing. The house is well-furnished and very clean. There is a TV in virtually every room of the house with a great selection of Blu-ray DVDs in the living room to choose from.

The fire pit to the side of the house makes for an excellent roasting experience that my kids loved The private dock is a great place to go and relax while taking in the view of the lake. My family and I went into town and enjoyed the unique dining experiences there as well as the large number of antique shops.

I cannot speak highly enough about this location and would definitely recommend it to any family, couple or group of friends that want to have a relaxing time in a clean home with a great view.

Inside we have a telescope for moon and star gazing and with such a huge front yard we didn't want to neglect outdoor activities. We have a large assortment of games such as a vintage Coquet Set, Horse Shoes, Frisbees, a soccer ball, Kubb, Yard Rat, Hoola Hoops, burlap potato sacks, and an archery set (sponge ends) for children. To comfortably watch these activities we put in a hammock in the front yard, along with a picnic table and other seating. There is also a firepit in the back facing the lake.
