About the property

3 Bed, 2 Bath, Sleeps 8 - Next to Mtn. Fork River and close to Broken Bow Lake

This luxury vacation rental Cabin in Smithville, Oklahoma, just north of Broken Bow Lake became available in November of 2016. Hilltop Getaway is situated on the highest point in Legacy Trails Cabins and has "above the tree line" panoramic views of the Kiamichi mountains in all directions. Legacy Trails Cabins is right on the Upper Mountain Fork river that feeds Broken Bow and is a short 3.5 hour drive from the DFW area. This 1300 sq. ft. cabin, with covered porches and an oversized back deck, has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. It has a full kitchen and a utility room with washer and dryer. It comfortably sleeps 8 people and has queen sized beds in two rooms and two sets of bunk beds in the other.

This cabin offers a cozy fireplace and an oversized outdoor fire pit area with 2 love seat rocking chairs, which make for a great place to roast marshmallows, make S'mores or just relax.

In addition, Legacy Trails Cabins provides 8 kayaks, life jackets and paddles for your use at no additional charge.

You can also check out Legacy Trails Cabins by staying at our other cabin, Hillside Hideaway (VRBO Listing #662225). Hillside Hideaway is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath cabin that sleeps 6 people and is more cozy and romantic, plus is less expensive, of course.

About Paul Granier

My family of four have lived in the North Dallas area for the better part of 20 years. All of us have grown up in Texas and my wife and I have graduated from Universities in Texas (Texas A&M and University of Texas). And now we run a staffing/search firm in Dallas. We like getting away from it all from time to time and this is one of the main reasons we bought this fantastic cabin.

Paul Granier purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Paul Granier chose Smithville

We liked our Hillside Hideaway Cabin so much and it is renting so well that we decided to build a second cabin! It is called Hilltop Getaway Cabin at Legacy Trails Cabins and became available in November of 2016. It is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath cabin and sleeps 8 comfortably. It is set at the highest point in Legacy Trails on a hilltop overlooking the Kiamichi Mountains in all directions.

We bought our first cabin because we were looking for a quick getaway place near water that was within easy reach of Dallas. We had looked and looked but had never found a place that had an attractive lake, a great lot and a beautiful cabin on it. When I saw Hillside Hideaway, I knew that that we had found the one we had been looking for and bought it immediately. Hillside Hideaway was brand new when we bought it in 2014 and was built with personal pride that shows.

Hilltop Getaway was hand-crafted by the same builder and is immaculately furnished. It sits on a hilltop with 3 acres of mostly wooded land and incredible panoramic views. And the 30-acre Legacy Trails neighborhood will be all vacation rental cabins set on 2-3 acres each with views of trees, rolling hills, creeks, wildlife and the Upper Mountain Fork river. Trust me, I am sure you will love Legacy Trails Cabins as much as we did when we discovered it.

What makes this cabin unique

If you want a secluded, peaceful getaway that is still close to the action, look no further. This cabin is set on about 3 acres, so it has a lot of privacy, yet has incredible views above the tree line in all directions. The view is amazing and the Mountain Fork River is about a 5-minute walk away. Fishermen will love this location, for sure. During the winter months, enjoy the gas fireplace and the wonderful fire pit area. Legacy Trails Cabins now offers kayaks at no charge for our guest and the Mountain Fork River makes for an incredible kayaking experience. Check out the pictures to get a feel for the river.

The cabin is very high-end and the beautiful workmanship on both the inside and the outside of the cabin are simply amazing. Just check out the pictures of the family room and kitchen.

There are many outside sitting areas. From the 32' covered front porch with swing, the full-length back covered porch (50') or the expansive back deck for those that only want a 'little' nature to the fire pit area for those that truly want to 'feel' the outdoors. Make sure to look up at night and see the stars like you have never seen before.

The first and second bedrooms have queen beds and the third bedroom has two bunk beds. The kitchen is fully equipped with the latest in appliances and conveniences and there is even a laundry room with a full size washer and dryer.

And being the gadget guy that I am, I could not do without an excellent surround sound system and Blu-ray DVD player. There is a whole assortment of movies and games to choose from, but no satellite TV service. Didn't you come here to enjoy the outdoors anyway?

But for those of you that cannot live without internet, wireless internet is available (please limit video streaming to one movie per day).

As far as phone service, AT&T Wireless and Pine Cellular work very well from within the cabin.

Family Reunion Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had the best weekend! The cabin was absolutely perfect for our family. It was my husband & I and two of our four boys with their families -- Six adults and two kids --- and the cabin was a perfect fit! (We did laugh at the couple sharing the bunk beds with the kids, but we brought a blow up mattress with us and they decided it wasn't necessary!) We enjoyed coffee outside on the deck (the "balcony" as my granddaughters liked to call it), visiting with our immediate and extended family, walking along the trails, collecting sticks, pinecones and rocks, sitting around the fire. The location was quiet and private. The views are beautiful. The cabin was well stocked with movies to entertain us when we were inside and it had everything we needed. The cabin was spacious and cozy at the same time. We will be back again!

great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our mini-vacation! The cabin was very nice and modern. Very tastefully decorated and stocked with nice kitchenware. The free use of the kayaks was nice, but access to the river was a little steep and difficult. Cabin was nicely stocked, but no soap/shampoo. I cant complain, We had a wonderful laid back time. We will be back soon!

Owner's Response: March 2018 Update: Exciting news for future guests!!! We just installed concrete stairs with metal handrails to make is very easy to get into the river now. I will post pictures in the next week or so... Thanks, Paul

Great cabin with a beautiful view.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is a little out of the way if you are trying to do activities in Broken Bow but the property is worth it for the views. It sits on a hilltop with a great view of the surrounding mountains. The layout and amenities were great, we had four adults and two children and we all had plenty of room. The only negatives are that the kitchen was a little lacking in supplies (for example, it didn't have filters for the coffee maker) and the $65 cleaning charge on top of the $250 a night charge was a bit much.

Owner's Response: We do try to stock a few coffee filters for guests, but the great news is that we now have a Dollar General in town. I have asked the property manager to stock coffee filters going forward. Thanks for the great feedback and really glad you enjoyed your stay!
