About Kathy or Rick Ary

Let us introduce ourselves! We are Rick and Kathy Ary and are from the Tulsa area. We love the lake and have made many great memories at many of the beautiful lakes in Oklahoma.

Kathy or Rick Ary purchased this house in 2014

Why Kathy or Rick Ary chose Afton

We chose this area because of its close proximity to everything. Need milk? It is right up the street. Decide to grill out tonight? Run down to Littlefields for the best meats you can find anywhere. Feel like golfing? Shangri La Resort is right around the corner. And fishing? Well you can fish for bass and crappie right off our dock!

What makes this house unique

Grand Lake is so beautiful and when we first laid eyes on our little Memory Maker Cottage in 2014, it was love at first site! We hope you love it and enjoy your stay as much as we do!

Very nice place for family vacation.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice house and great location for those who enjoy fishing, golfing, or just relaxation. Owners were very nice and great to work with. Loved the screened in porch/, living room, and master bedroom were very nice. Only reason I did not give it 5 stars was due to the lack of oudoor lighting for the porch and deck, but the owners did inform me beforehand that they were working on outdoor lighting that might not be completed by my stay. Overall great experience and we will definitely be back again!

Waterfront oasis

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. The cove was quiet, peaceful and close to everything on Grand. The private dock was a huge bonus!! The house was quaint, well stocked and as described. The outdoor patio was beautiful. The screened in porch was fantastic - we had great weather so my father slept out there at night (and naps). Thanks to the Ary's for a great vacation and a great place to stay! We hope to be back.

A little Slice of Paradise

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I rented the house to spend Memorial Day with our kids and grandkids. While a little tight at times, the house handled our entire party (6 adults and 4 children) adequately. We LOVED the screened in porch!! There was a storm one of the evenings we were there and we thoroughly enjoyed watching the lightning show from the porch. The back deck allowed us to keep an eye on the children as they played in the water or in the small grass yard. We liked having the dock available as we rented a boat at the local marina and used the dock in between lake outings. The risk of staying here is that you'll want your own piece of paradise after visiting. We would consider staying here again the next time we come to Grand Lake (if we haven't bought our own lake house by then!!).

We had a relaxing and enjoyable weekend!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house for a relaxing weekend away to celebrate my wife's 30th birthday with some friends. When we arrived the house was very clean and prepped for us to settle in. We do wish the ice maker was working so we didn't have to continue to go buy ice. The rooms were great, outdoor space was perfect for games, music and great conversation. We also did a shrimp boil and the large porch table was perfect. Had a memorable weekend.

Owner's Response: So happy you had a memorable weekend and enjoyed your stay. We hope you will be back. I'm sorry about the ice situation. It is not that the ice maker does not work it is that due to the proximity of the refrigerator it is impossible to plumb. But I appreciate the feedback and will look for some solutions for the future.
