Anyone who has been to McCurtain County lately knows that the Hochatown area has become the place for active families to vacation. Fly fishing, bass fishing, scuba diving, rafting, ATV riding, horse riding, water skiing, hunting, hiking, and camping, its all there. Plus, new restaurants, shops and entertainment venues are adding to the enjoyment. Unfortunately, places like these quickly get loved to death. If you are looking for a property where you can enjoy all that the area has to offer plus also soak up the solitude and beautiful scenery that was there before everything exploded, then we'd like to welcome you to Spiritual View Retreat.
Spiritual View Retreat is a 20 acre property located on the Upper Mountain Fork River near Smithville, OK. The property has land on both sides of the river, giving you additional privacy and an unobstructed natural view. Spiritual View offers a unique combination of cliff top cabin location with a tremendous river and skyline view plus river access all on the same property. The 900 feet of river frontage can be accessed by a graveled trail that leads down to a nice cleared area on the banks of the river. Here you can fish, swim or launch a canoe or kayak. If you are up to it, you can float 15 miles of this beautiful river all the way to Broken Bow Lake. This would be an amazing float trip as you meander through long stretches of dense forest that lines the steep banks of the river. For those who like to trail ride, the property is located just up the road from a trailhead on the Three Rivers Wildlife Management Area that offers tremendous riding opportunities for both ATV and horse enthusiasts on its 200,000 acres. In addition, the seller has a 500 acre hunting lease that adjoins the property. The lease is shared with the local game warden, who also happens to be a neighbor. Therefore, there may be an opportunity to pick up the seller's part of the hunting lease also.
The improvements on the property are ideal for active lifestyle families. The cabin is beautiful and sits atop a high cliff overlooking the river. At approximately 2500 square feet, it is large enough for everyone to be comfortable without being a huge housekeeping challenge. It has everything you want: exterior live-edge wood siding, beautiful rough sawn wood floors, cathedral ceiling, and a double sided fireplace that allows you to enjoy a fire inside or one on the deck overlooking the river. Large windows in each room bring the outside in. Custom cabinets, pantry and closets provide plenty of room for storing supplies for big family events. If you've ever had mosquitos ruin your time outside, you will truly appreciate the built in mister that keeps the bugs away from the deck and outdoor fireplace. If you like to cook over a wood fire, the outdoor fireplace is also equipped with a cooking grate that swings out so that you can easily and safely cook your steaks while you listen to the calming sounds of the river as it flows past. Lastly, the entire place is set up so that you can easily shut down all unnecessary utilities when you have to leave and go back to the real world.
Of course, you also need a place to keep all of your toys. A metal storage building located just west of the cabin offers plenty of room for ATVs, kayaks, and every other toy you may want to bring. And, if you have more friends and family coming than the cabin can hold, there are two RV hookups ready to serve. The RV guests probably wont complain too much as they will also have a 20 mile view of the mountains from their front door. We think you will fall in love with the place as you sit around the fire and look out across thousands of acres and not see a single house light at night.
If you've always wanted a place that the family could go and truly enjoy the great outdoors without having to buying hundreds of acres, then this may be the very best opportunity you come across. Where else will you get a beautiful river that connects you to an amazing lake and access to 200,000 acres for trail riding and hunting from a 20 acre property? If you think Spiritual View Retreat is a good match for your family, please give us a call to set up a showing.
