Bear Creek Lodge We went here with our 2 boys and another family and it accommodated us perfectly. There were freshly baked cookies upon arrival and they have a little table and chairs for the kids which I thought was a nice touch. Very kid friendly atmosphere, but would be good for a couples getaway also or any occasion. The beds are super comfy and the cabin stays nice and cool, which is a big deal to us Texans. ;) There is a TV in every room with Direc TV. We put all 4 kids in the master bathtub because it is huge (all 5 and under) which was very convenient to get baths done at once and the kids loved it! There is a swing set, horseshoes, hot tub, fire pit, pool table and foosball table. The kids had so much fun and so did we!! I thought it was also nice that we didn't have a whole list of stuff to do before we left. It was nice to just do the few things the owners asked of us, then load up and go. Moon Tower Bar and Grille is delicious and so is Hochatown BBQ. We had a blast at the Hochatown Petting Zoo and the owner was SO accommodating and friendly. We took our friends pontoon boat out on Broken Bow Lake and it was beautiful. We will definitely return in the future!!
Stayed at the cabin over Memorial Day weekend 2017. We've been to Broken Bow a number of times and have stayed in many nice cabins. This cabin is probably the best we've stayed in. Everything was clean, well laid out, and we especially enjoyed the back deck and fire pit area. To top it off, it's in a great location close to the state parks and restaurants in Hochatown. I'd highly recommend this cabin.
My husband and I had made arrangements for our family to go to Broken Bow this upcoming weekend. We will be celebrating our 18 yr anniversary. There has been a lot of illness with the children and ourselves over the past month so we are in much need of a break and some relaxation now that everyone is well. To my surprise the cabin from another local agency had double booked our cabin so we lost our reservation! We were devastated and not much hope of finding anything last minute. Then our little angel (Michelle) went above and beyond to find us a rental. A cabin opened up and we now get to make our trip. Michelle is amazing in my eyes and showed wonderful customer service. Thank you again Michelle! Thank you Tonya @ Blue Beaver!
My friend and I stayed at Peaceful Peak for several days while we attended a business conference. The home is beautiful and very well appointed, from the complimentary phone chargers to the purified pitcher of water in the fridge. It was emacculately clean and the manager was very good about checking to see if we had everything we needed. Peaceful Peak cabin/home is truly a peaceful and beautiful place to stay.
This was undoubtedly the best cabin stay that I have ever experienced. It was so cozy and nicely decorated, and had all of the accoutrements from home. I even forgot to pack cotton balls and Q-tips in my suitcase and found that they had them stocked in the bathroom! There was an abundance of fluffy bath towels, shampoos and conditioners, laundry soap, and the kitchen was stocked with everything I could imagine. It was spacious and comfortable. The beds were super comfy! I couldn't recommend this place more

We enjoyed it very much and the owners are very friendly and helpful. Nathan responded very quickly and gave lots of great information. The cabin was beautiful and very nicely decorated. It had all of the accommodations needed. I would definitely recommend this cabin! We have absolutely no complaints about our stay. It was perfect!
Bear Creek Lodge
We loved everything about it! All 12 adults loved it! More than enough space for all of us to sleep, comfortably! We enjoyed the hot tub with a star shower one night and the fire pit and grill the next night. It was a perfect weekend trip! We will definitely go back!! The customer service was also very friendly and prompt!

We love to travel and from Dallas, there are not many places that we want to drive to for a getaway until now. Peaceful Peak was a great place for my wife and I and our two children to get away for long weekend. The house lives up to its name - Peaceful. We really enjoyed getting to just hang out on the large wrap around porches, play ball with the kids in the large side yards, relax in the hot tub and sit out by the fire pit at night after the kids went to sleep. The fire pit at night was my personal favorite. The stars were amazing.
The house itself is very open and inviting, was very nicely appointed. My wife and I enjoy renting houses when we travel and we have rented a ton of them over the years. This is one of the nicest and most well thought out homes we have rented. Very comfortable and had everything we needed and more. The game room in the back was a great place for the kids to play. I was also far enough away from us when they went to bed that my wife and I could relax and catch up.
It is also very conveniently located to the entrance to Beavers Bend Park where we enjoyed hiking, taking the kids on the train, and just skipping rocks in the river. This wasn't our first trip to Broken Bow, but it definitely was our favorite. We will be going back to as soon as we can to catch more peaceful time at this house. I would and already have recommended this home to our friends and family.
Our cabin was awesome! It looked identical to the pictures I saw on vrbo. When we walked in it was very clean. The lodge was beautifully decorated. All the beds were very comfortable. The kids had foosball, pool, and games to keep them busy. The hot tub was a hit. We loved the decking also. One of our favorite things were the beautiful enchanted green lights that shown into the woods at night time! This was hands down the best time our family ever had! And, the owners went out of their way to be accommodating. Also -- the air conditioning was fantastic! As you can see, we will definitely return!

We stayed at the Peaceful Peak for a fun and relaxing weekend with really good friends! It was gorgeous and everything was brand new! The cabin is really well thought out with beautiful furnishings and decor. The outdoor deck is awesome with plenty of room and hot tub is such a plus! The outdoor games area is great and gets the kids outside! The cabin is tucked back off the road but not too far when you want to get out. The beautiful state park is super close by! Our favorite part was getting a fire going every night in the fire pit and enjoying the stars and company of our family and friends! We will definitely be back!
My family of 7 had an amazing time at this beautiful cabin. Everything was perfect! We especially loved the dï¿½cor, hot tub,&green lights looking off of back deck . Everything was beautifully maintained and clean. We didn't want to leave! Nathan was wonderful about answering all my questions. I highly recommend this awesome cabin!!! One of the best family vacations we ever had!

Stayed here for a family vacation in April, 2016. I cannot say enough about this home in the woods. Peaceful Peak had everything we needed and them some. Kitchen has everything you need (even a popcorn maker). Kids loved the Xbox, family friendly DVDs and board games. The outdoor deck is spacious, equipped with gas grill and hot tub! We spent our evenings enjoying the stars gathered around the huge fire pit. So sad we had to leave, but we will be back!
This cabin is wonderful - especially if you have teenagers. The kids loved the pool table and hot tub. The house is in a great location and close to everything. Super clean and beautifully decorated. Nathan was very responsive and easy to work with. We will stay here again next year.

We were SO impressed with this cabin! It was one of the most well-stocked rentals I have ever stayed in. There were plenty of plates, cooking supplies, towels, extra linens, etc. They even had lots of other less thought of items such as cleaning supplies, bug spray, bathroom toiletries, and more. I also have to add that the master bed was the most comfortable bed ever!! Nathan was extremely prompt in answering any questions before and during our stay. He was easily accessible by email and phone. We loved every part of our stay and would definitely return!

The only problem with this cabin is that we did not want to leave. Not as in the weekend is over "leave", as in "I don't really want to leave to go to dinner or hiking or fishing". its just that cozy. Luckily we did not "have" to leave for dinner as this place is fully equipped with items and appliances that are top of the line. From the heated seat toilet to the washer/dryer to the convection cooktop, ninja coffee maker to the gas grill EVERYTHING Top of the Line. All we needed was fresh groceries.
The cabin appears to be brand new. Extremely spacious! I really wish we had invited friends, as there is plenty of room. Perfect for two families. The room with the two beds even has a new X-Bow and a collection of games as well as board games for the kiddos. Really hope to catch this one open again soon. It was just that great of an experience. We really loved everything but going home. The entire family was absolutely blown away. Thank you for the wonderful experience.
Probably the best "prepped" place we've ever stayed. Music was playing on the satellite tv, hot tub towels were ready by the back door, fire starter logs were on the fire pit. -Just a beautiful place, inside and out. -Foosball table was a great idea. We all loved it! Also the seesaw and swingset outside - perfect for the little tikes! -The view from the hot tub deck into the trees is gorgeous. -Proximity to the golf course and NW side of the lake is good -Right around the corner from Moon Tower Bar and Grill (possibly the best food I've had in years)
Bear Creek Lodge
The cabin was exquisite and extremely well maintained. All the appliances are five-star, the furniture was extremely comfortable and modern (not common in other cabins) and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed (utensils and equipment) to cook meals for all thirteen of us each night.
But enough about the interior, we spent most of our time outside!
Whether it was playing foosball, horse shoes, lounging in the hot tub or relaxing by the fire in the evenings, everyone stayed outdoors and enjoyed how beautiful of scene they had before them. We enjoyed every single minute.
We can't wait to come back!
Wow! We spent three nights in this cabin the week before Thanksgiving to celebrate an early holiday. We were blown away by it! The cabin is even better than the pictures and upon entering the front door we were immediately greeted by a wonderfully homelike smell and ambience. You will need nothing here as the owners have supplied even things you didn't know you needed! Location to state park was perfect and just a few minute drive. Our favourite part was the back deck with wrap around views, beautiful bar, hot tub, and the amazing green lights in the forest! We and all our visitors were just amazed at the green forest lights! The inside is perfectly suited for a crowd! It even came equipped with air mattresses and a wonderful fold out cot for incoming overnight guests. At no point, did our family or guests feel crowded in the cabin. The owner, Nathan, was so easy to work with and even came over the next day to give us our fresh baked cookies since we had gotten in so late the night before! This cabin is a dream and one you don't want to wake from. We highly recommend it!
EVERYTHING WAS FANTASTIC! 10/10!!!! The cabin itself was so cute & cozy. The beds are super comfy. The bathrooms & kitchen have everything you know. The location is perfect. We had three 5 & 6 year olds in our party & there wasn't a single moment that they were bored. All of the adults thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This was such a great little getaway for all of us & we can't wait to stay here again during the summer!
Perfect size and layout for my wife and me, her niece and husband and three young children. The manager had no problem with our small dog. Parking was more than adequate for two trucks, a boat and a trailer full of ATVs. The circular driveway made getting in and out easy. The amenities were all top notch and my wife commented that the mattress on our bed just sucked her in. DirecTV and kid friendly DVDs are included for evening entertainment. Wood is supplied for the firepit. Location is convenient to Hochatown, Ouachita National Forest (ATV trails only 1.5 miles away!) and Beavers Bend SP. Cabin is at the end of a dirt road, thus there is no traffic. The kids had a great time in the hot tub. The decor is very well done and gives the cabin a homey feeling. We all felt comfortable the moment we walked int he door. We tried to extend our stay, but alas, there was already another renter on the way. The place we ended up moving to was nice, but we still would have rather stayed here for the extra days. We all were planning our return trip on our way home.
We stayed with a our friends and 3 kids in the house in July 2017. Its a beautiful house with great living area and wonderful hot tub. Second floor bedrooms were kids favorite and we would definitely recommend this place to our friends. My kids enjoyed home made cookie and board games. Kitchen has all necessary utensils. All Bathrooms has plenty of towels. Only suggestion to owner would be that they can share driving directions with rough distance from Road #259A, that would be very helpful.
I grade an accommodation by its feel the minute the front door opens.
Peaceful Peak gets five stars in the Wow Department – it took my breath away. It says “Come in, I’m your home for the next few days, I think you’ll find me to be everything your everyday home is, but I must tell you, I DO have a few tricks up my sleeve – step in, please.”
Plays to the crowd in a grand manner.
Having stayed at dozens of cabins across this country, several of those around Beavers Bend, I must lay upon you how unique this gem is: except for meds and groceries, you’ll have no wont for anything here. Equipped to the hilt in a way that way outclasses anything I’ve ever booked: charging stations bookending the breakfast island, stocked kitchen that’ll bring out the Iron Chef in anybody, wall receptacles where ever you are, living area with the openness and grandeur of the Sistine Chapel and lighting so luminous inside and out even a person who notices nothing will notice something.
Let me also lay upon you the definition of tricked out: hipster fire pit, truly HOT hot tub, covered deck area your house could probably fit in, foosball, horseshoes, grill-master-serious gas grill (squeaky clean, Kona grill mat no charge), Toto toilet ensconced with washlet & seat warmer, master shower you’ll find yourself unnecessarily lingering in. . .
Excuse me a sec, I’m getting trick fatigue here.
Better now, can we move on?
Peaceful Peak’s layout is uncompromising. Hot tub exactly positioned where anyone who cares about privacy would want it and a grill so sheltered it may as well be indoors. Every detail so intelligently thought out, I’d swear this cabin’s designer was reading my mind. How could they be walking around knowing this is exactly where I wanted the fire place? Exactly where I wanted the built-in china hutch?
Then location. OMG, this IS the bee’s knees: tucked in just far enough from the main drag to exclude itself from road noise, dust and light pollution. Orion is so bright, I wanted to reach for my sunshades. For sure I must bring my Newton 8-inch next time, what was I thinking?
Such is the kingdom of heaven.
Look, there’s no place like this place anywhere near this place, so I’m telling you this IS the place. Anybody about to build a cabin should ask if what they are about to build is really, and I mean really, better than the ordinary. You can tell this owner did: it’s magnificent, it’s handsome, it’s well made and yes, it’s romantic -- features not found in the general vacation rental population.
Were I its owner, would I share this cabin?
For ANY amount of money.
It’ that special.
It is a monument of cabin building.
