Just What I needed...

Although just minutes from Hochatown dining, entertainment and recreational activities, you’ll enjoy this exclusive destination property all to yourself in quiet serenity, as this cabin sits at the end of a road with no traffic and no neighbors in sight. The retreat backs up to the Ouchita National Forest and a babbling brook runs directly behind. There’s a circle drive with ample parking, including trailers, (no RVs), a large campfire ring, horseshoe pit, tree swing and relaxing hot tub.

JUST WHAT I NEEDED RETREAT (formerly North Wind Lodge) is a real log cabin, nestled on two secluded acres in Broken Bow, OK and adjoining the Ouachita National Forest. After a relaxing stay, you’ll understand why we call it that!

Although just minutes from Hochatown dining, entertainment and recreational activities, you’ll enjoy this exclusive destination property all to yourself in quiet serenity, as this cabin sits at the end of a road with no traffic and no neighbors in sight. The retreat backs up to the Ouchita National Forest and a babbling brook runs directly behind. There’s a circle drive with ample parking, including trailers (sorry, no RVs), a large campfire ring with firewood provided, horseshoe pit, tree swing and relaxing hot tub (drained & cleaned after each stay).

This two-story cabin features three bedrooms and 2.5 baths and sleeps eleven—perfect for an extended family vacation, a ladies’ weekend escape, or a group of friends just wanting to get away from it all. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and a private bath, complete with a soaking tub and separate shower. The two upstairs bedrooms also have king-sized beds. There are also triple and double bunkrooms!

The furnishings and décor are recently updated and include several custom and unique pieces. The wide-open living/dining area includes a large smart TV and features a dramatic two-story, locally quarried, mountain stone fireplace. Enjoy the glow of a cozy seasonal natural wood fire with the whole family! The upstairs bunkroom also features a video arcade table with over 400 vintage games, and plenty of amusing family board games. The double bunkroom includes a smart TV and Xbox game player. The fully equipped kitchen has all you need to prepare gourmet meals for family and friends.

One of the best features of the cabin is the fully covered wraparound porch, perfect for enjoying the first cup of coffee in the morning and the last activity of stargazing at night. It features a foosball table, gas grill with propane provided and outside dining for all.

If you’re looking for that all-important getaway to recharge your physical, mental and spiritual health, come discover how our retreat will leave you saying it was “…just what I needed.”
