About Jackie Roberts
Currently residing in Tulsa, OK, we are an active family with two daughters. We love spending weekends and holidays at the Lodge with family and friends every chance we get! We have watched our girls grow up swimming in the lake, exploring nature trails, and bringing in every creature and critter they've managed to catch! We pray you will find the atmosphere of this property filled with love, grace and peace. Allow the healing power of God's beautiful design in nature to warm your heart and your soul. Rejuvenate. Relax. De-stress. Soak in every benefit that nature offers and enjoy our Lodge to the max!
Jackie Roberts purchased this Lodge in 2006
Why Jackie Roberts chose Sasakwa
Opened in 2007, let us tell you why we chose to build this place of peace in the country ... For 3 years (2005-2007) we were on the road working disaster relief for hurricanes and storms. We were rebuilding what nature took away. For those 3 years we were extremely busy - working full time, running our company, managing employees, and raising our 2 small daughters. We worked incredibly long hours, many times 7 days a week, and the pressures of exhaustion and stress took its toll. Each year my husband was able to squeeze away for a weekend to hunt for 3 days at an outfitters lodge. Hunting is his refuge, his sanctuary, the thing he does to get away from it all and REJUVINATE ... to reconnect with God in the most tranquil environment that He created. If not for those outfitters, he would have had 3 years with no hunting - and those weekends were priceless refuges of stress relief that were desperately needed due to the incredible work load we were managing at the time. Because of the outfitter, our family had time away from home to reconnect in beautiful surroundings, husband got to hunt, and we all got to experience the joy of relaxing in nature with a much-needed 'get away from it all' weekend that was a necessity to push through the rest of the work year. So while at the last outfitters we visited, we decided that we wanted to build one of these stress-busting retreats for others (hunters and non-hunters alike) to enjoy as well ... and as a result we created this place of relaxation and peace in the woods. We want everyone to have an opportunity to take some time away with family and friends ... to reconnect, relax, de-stress, rejuvenate and to simply have a good time! We have an amazing property with breath-taking views inside and out that causes you to ENJOY NATURE ... and ENJOY LIFE. Welcome to Roberts Retreat ... our 'Lodge'.
What makes this Lodge unique
We have found that the morning sunrises and evening sunsets over the lake are exquisite! This property truly is a HIDEAWAY. It offers peace and privacy like very few other places offer. We've tried to think of amenities we could provide that would make one's stay for any occasion specific & personal... Can't stay away from the internet? We can offer you a wifi package. Want to try your hand at fishing but don't want to invest in the equipment? We can offer you fishing tackle and boat rental. Want to enjoy an afternoon on the lake? We've got a kayak, paddle boat and paddle board to rent as well. Perhaps there's a child's party to consider during vacation? Rent our indoor bouncy house! Planning a wedding or romantic getaway? We have an exclusive offer for a private master bedroom boasting a king size bed, lazy-boy chair, quaint fireplace, and private en-suite with jacuzzi tub and over-sized double rain shower. (This room is not advertised or included with the main rental so ask us about this special add-on rental.) We hope we are able to cater to your specific needs and make your stay with us a time you'll always remember ... and keep you longing to return!

Our rather large (8 adults, 10 children) gathered for a family weekend. The kitchen set up was ideal for such a large group with 3 ovens, a microwave, 2 sinks and a lot of counter space. There were plenty of places to sit and eat. We enjoyed having two seperate living areas where we could watch tv or play games. We rented all the lake equipment and had fun playing in the water.
This place is beautiful! A private home away from all the noise! stores are about a 15 min. drive away. The house is huge, very well equipped with pots, pans, everything you need for a vacation. while we were there one of the knobs in the shower broke but Maintenance was there with in the hour. lake was nice we didnt get in since it was to deep for everyone, but we did do some fishing. Be sure to let owner know ahead of time if you want to use Hot tub so they can clean we didn't get to use because it is closed in the months of July and August because of heat, owner will work with you. there is a lot of space. every one that went enjoyed the stay and time away! although the kids were not fond of the no cell service. some had and some didnt. about 95% of us didnt have cell service so totally recommend getting wifi package.
The cabin exceeded our expectations!!! We were very pleased and will be back next year
Great for retreats!
This is our second year staying at the Roberts Retreat and we continue to love our time together in this place! The hosts communicate quickly and everything was prepped for our arrival. The porch swing was a great new addition, as well as the covered dock! A few of our group got out on the water and enjoyed the kayak. Just a few minor things: the upstairs heat was on when we arrived and took several hours for the air conditioning to kick in, making sleeping conditions uncomfortable for the bunk rooms. There were also quite a few wasps and ants in the kitchen and living room area. The wasps tended to stay up by the ceiling, especially when we turned the fans on, but did make it difficult to focus during group time when all the ladies were focused on where the wasps were. Thankfully, there were fly swatters in the pantry. The ants trailed throughout the living room and kitchen area, so we tried to be as diligent as possible to take out the trash cans and not leave food out for long periods of time. We also noticed the coffee pot and dishwasher seemed to need some maintenance, as they both leaked. Aside from those minor issues, everything about our stay was lovely. If you are looking for a peaceful getaway to relax and spend time with one another, this is it. We are so thankful for the incredible service that the Roberts Retreat provides.
We had my daughters wedding here over the weekend and it was absolutely beautiful. Highly recommend this retreat for a getaway. They owners and especially, Cindy were so helpful and went out of their way to be helpful. Will definitely be visiting again someday. Thank you again Cindy for all of your help. You are a blessing.
WORTH EVERY PENNY!!! The best place we've ever stayed!!!
The Lodge is so incredible! From the easy booking process to the fast and friendly communication, to the detailed instructions, the owner of this property is well organized and so easy to work with. This is our second stay and the upgrades they continue to make are wonderful. I didn't think this property could get any better but it continues to impress. The porch swing on the deck was my favorite spot to start the day with a cup of coffee. At night we gathered around the amazing firepit area. The kids played ping pong and the men watched football. Lots of room to spread out and do your own thing. Perfect kitchen with every amenity you can think of to cook for a large group. I just can't say enough about this place. I can't wait to come back next year and see what else they have added or upgraded! I can't imagine finding another property that our group loves as much as this one. The Lodge is worth every penny of the rental cost! :)
