About Linda & David Birchett

Living in Oklahoma City and coming to Lake Tenkiller on weekends, my husband and I always wanted to stay at the lake until we wanted to leave--not had to leave to go back to work. We moved to our lake home in 2003 and enjoy boating, fishing, walking, and all of the scenery and entertainment the lake area has to offer. We are now a semi-retired couple who recently fulfilled our dream of completely renovating a house--it just so happens to be next door to our primary residence.

Linda & David Birchett purchased this house in 2013

Why Linda & David Birchett chose Cookson

We purchased this particular property because it is located next door to our home and we wanted to restore it to its former beauty. It turned out even better than we expected! We are anxious to share it with visitors and hope they enjoy the area as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

The property is located on a dead-end gravel road. Wooded lots separate all four houses on the street so there is privacy and solitude, yet residents and visitors are not so secluded as to feel isolated and insecure.

Great house!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our time at the house. The location is beautiful. Our kids loved playing on the yard in the front and finding sticks in the woods. The fire pit area is a great place to hang out. We also liked how there were tables and chairs on every porch. It was the perfect place to play games at night.

There are very steep narrow stairs that aren't great for young kids. The boards on the railing on the deck upstairs are also very far apart. It would be very easy for a child to accidentally fall. Other than that the house is an awesome vacation place! The house would be perfect for families with elementary-aged or older kids.
