Four Bedrooms With King Size Beds, 3 Custom Baths, Plus Bunk Room/Game Room.
Take in the beauty of Grand Lake from the decks of this luxurious home with four bedrooms and a bunk room/game room. Recently customized inside and out, this home is one of the most pleasant and comfortable locations on Grand Lake. All bedrooms have king beds with new, comfortable mattresses. The bunk room has a double bunk and a day bed with trundle.
There is also an upstairs nook with a queen sleeper sofa. So the house will comfortably sleep 12 without the sleeper sofa. All bedding and furniture is new and was meticulously selected for comfort first. The living room is equipped with a 60' smart TV with internet connection through Wavelinx.
There are two magnificent decks, both of which provide a beautiful panoramic view of the Monkey Island area of Grand Lake. Wildlife is abundant with ducks, geese, pelicans (in season), deer and bald eagles. A large outdoor grill is located on the upper deck for 'outdoor cooking with a view'. Speaking of the view: the nicest thing is that when taking it in you will have a hard time finding anything man-made. There are many places on Grand Lake that have a view--of the neighbor's docks or marina. Not here. You look out on the wilderness of Snake Island (named for its shape, not what's on it) and Governor's Island, and beyond that, is Monkey Island where with good eyes you can see a distant water tower and hotel. Enjoy the sunrise with your coffee and nature.
The kitchen is beautiful with granite counter tops and stainless appliances. It is fully equipped with convection oven, five top burner range, convection microwave, refrigerator/freezer with ice and water dispenser, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, blender, and crock pot. A good supply of cookware, baking pans, and cooking utensils are available for your use whether cooking for small or large groups. Basic staples such as flour, pancake/biscuit mixes, various types of sugars, corn meal, syrups, basic salad dressings, mayo, mustard, and relish are provided along with a large supply of spices and rubs for cooking or grilling. There is a large dining table with full view of the lake.

About Barbara Bogan
My name is Fred Bogan. My wife's name is Barbara. Together we have enjoyed running a busy chiropractic office in Tulsa for more than 35 years. Shortly after getting married we purchased an old cabin cruiser on Grand Lake which we kept for 10 years. As the kids came along and life got more and more busy we reluctantly let the boat go. However, our love of Grand Lake never went away. Many years later we purchased another cruiser which we keep at Arrowhead Yacht Club. We love our boat but that didn't stop Barbara from dreaming of a house on her favorite lake. This home is the culmination of her three year search for the perfect place for her to call her home away from home. We hope you agree.
Barbara Bogan purchased this House in 2014
Why Barbara Bogan chose Cleora
As you might imagine, I was not particularly ecstatic about owning a second home. But, I can tell you without doubt that what hooked me about this particular house, in addition to its many amenities, is the view. When I saw the view from the decks or almost any place in the house I was hooked. The house is beautiful, well laid out on a very nice lot, and with a view that can only be matched by fewer than a handful of homes anywhere on the lake. I challenge you to look out any window or step out on either deck and not stop to take in the beauty that God has provided. There are very few places on the lake that offer a view that is not cluttered with docks and other man-made structures. Not here. What you see is thousands of acres of water and wilderness. It's just indescribable
What makes this House unique
Our dock has a large upper deck patio for sunning, reading, eating breakfast, lunch, or dinner, or just hanging out while the kids swim. The 'kids' of all ages seem to love jumping of the top deck. For the smaller group of kids we have a very special place for them to play called the fantasy room. We provide lots of costumes with all the extras such as hats, jewelry, wands, swords, capes, shields, and ect. We have hand puppets, puzzles, arts and crafts, books, and many more exciting things for their little imaginations to go wild. We have some extra amenities for various needs or occasions. 1. 12 - 5 place settings of China with serving pieces for that special dinner. 2. Punch Bowl & 24 sets of dessert plates and cups. 3. 2 - Pack - In - Plays 4. Booster seat high chair 5. Bouncy Seat that hangs from door 6. Saucer seat

Oh my goodness where to start....... first of all, the correspondence with the owners (Fred and Barbara) was always easy and prompt. Everything was clear and lined out perfectly for our stay. Upon arrival, we met with the house and boat manager, and they were both very nice and extremely helpful the entire trip (Jim was hilarious!) The house was spotless and had every amenity you could think of. Fresh baked cookies on arrival, a bottle of wine..... a pantry filled with flour, sugar, seasonings, etc..... They literally thought of EVERYTHING. We only had to leave ONCE during our entire stay and that was to go get groceries for our stay........The view was just INCREDIBLE........ no matter where you went you could see the lake in all directions...... I'm not sure you could even get a better view than the view from this home! There is not one complaint that we have about our stay other than we wish that we owned the home ourselves so that we could never leave.......... It rained every day that we were on vacation, but it didn't matter.... we took the boat out fishing, fished off the dock, played cards, grilled out, played foosball in the kids room and spent quality time together..... it was one of the best family vacations we have ever had! The owners are such wonderful people, the house manager and boat manager were awesome and everything was absolutely perfect. We would recommend this to anyone that wants a nice, relaxing vacation in a huge, gorgeous home with an unbelievably beautiful view.......the family time away from all the "hustle and bustle" is just priceless. Love, Love, LOVE the Bogan House and we can't wait to go back!
Spend your day relaxing on deck and enjoying the stunning lake view
We spent 2 days enjoying the wonderful view of Grand Lake from the top deck of the Bogan’s beautiful home. The house had something for everyone...a bunk room where the kids could hide out, dress up and play basketball & games; upper & lower decks with Grand Lake view & comfortable bedrooms with beautiful decor. We enjoyed the lake & golfed at Shangri-La. The den had comfy furniture where we all watched a movie. The house was well-stocked and we brought groceries to cook meals.
Patricia met us at the house for our check-in and she was delightful!! She brought homemade chocolate chip cookies that our kids devoured.
I highly recommend ordering her cinnamon rolls. They were delicious!!
Jim, the boat guy, was nice and very knowledgeable. My one piece of very important information would be this...if you rent the pontoon or bring your own boat... STAY AWAY FROM THE ISLANDS ENTIRELY!!!! There are areas where it seems like you could cruise through...seems wide enough...no buoys or markers....it doesn’t matter...it’s shallow...even in the middle...don’t do it!!! You’ll go from 70’ to 3’ and then you’re in trouble. So...in summary...those cool islands north east of the cabin...don’t go near them in a pontoon or ski boat. Period!!!
Overall...we had a relaxing, fun weekend in the beautiful Bogan home. We just left and we’re looking forward to our next trip!!
Cozy, tasteful and filled w/ unexpected surprises!
Beautiful scenery, tastefully decorated and stocked w/ everything you would need and then some! Welcomed w/ some gracious wine and chocolate chip cookies! A special touch were all the cozy robes provided in each bedroom! Thank you for allowing our family some quality time together in such a warm home.❤️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Girls Weekend October 5,2017
We enjoyed our weekend very much.The house was beautiful and the view was spectacular.Everything you could possible need was available to us.What a wonderful weekend to experience with 10 of our closest friends. P.S. order the cinnamon rolls.
Home was perfect for my parents 60th anniversary celebration!! Plenty of comfort for all!
Beautiful home with a panoramic view of the lake! We had everything we needed and more! Highly recommend Patricia's cinnamon rolls (especially after they are heated). Jim the boat caretaker and Patricia the house manager were both very helpful and quick to respond!
Just a caution about being on top level of dock when large boats go by, HANG ON!!!
Weather was excellent and unforgettable memories were made!
I am happy to hear the anniversary celebration was a success.
Very clean and beautiful home!
This was one of the best family vacations we have ever had! The property was like a home away from home! We will definitely consider and recommend this property to others. Depending on the time of the year and if you are staying during the week, there are not many options for restaurants or retail stores that are open. But the lake was calm and beautiful and ideal for swimming and boating. Thank you again to the whole staff and property owners for helping our families make awesome memories! !
Glad you had wonderful memories made at our home. In the lake area businesses are usually closed on Mondays and sometimes Tuesday because they are open all weekends. You could have called me and I could have helped you with the stores and restaurants.
We are located in a wooded gated community. Our boat dock is on our property. It has a boat lift, mooring whips, two jet ski lifts, and a large patio deck on top.
