It's time to pack your suitcase, get the road trip snacks together, and hit the road for your summer family vacation. It's time to make some new memories, have fun together, and be tired when it's all over!

A great place to visit while on vacation that isn't too far from East Texas is Broken Bow, Oklahoma. This area of extreme southeast Oklahoma is home to thousands of rental cabins. Rent them for the day, week, month, or even longer.

There are cabins of all sizes each with their unique accommodations.

Now I'm not sure how to put this, but I think if I were to check into this place I'd never leave. I would even go out on a limb and say that once you see the pictures of this extraordinary cabin after checking in you would probably will not want to leave too!

This house is literally perfect. It has everything you could ever need. It has activities for everyone. It is perfectly designed to allow for family enjoyment. - review Gina L.

Broken Bow, the hidden gem in the extreme southeast corner of Oklahoma is about a two-and-a-half-hour drive from East Texas on the outskirts of Beavers Bend State Park and Nature Center. This hidden getaway destination offers some unforgettable experiences for your family. This has become a quick weekend getaway hot spot.

My family and I have visited and stayed in quite a few of these cabins and have enjoyed everything the area has to offer. We were actually planning to return there in June. So while looking at rental properties for the weekend the Slideaway Hideaway popped up.

This place is full of excitement and wonder.

If you've got a large family or a large group looking to spend some time in the pine forest and at a state park, then this could be the perfect destination for you. Pulling up to this place, you'll be blown away. It's grand. It's three stories and extreme!

Lots of room - this place sleeps 32 people.

There are a total of seven bedrooms that will sleep up to 32 people. There are two master suites in addition to ensuites and a couple of bunk rooms that contain 4 queen beds and 2 twin beds in each. Don't worry there are plenty of bathrooms too for the entire crew.

Talk about amenities, this place is on steroids!

When looking for a rental cabin it's all about the added activities that are included. When you stay here you may never leave the cabin to take part in area excursions and activities because this place is loaded with things to do. There are two gigantic slides. Yes, one is a three-story see-thru slide that kids will never get tired of. It's not all kid-oriented either, other amenities include:

  • pool table
  • card/poker table
  • shuffleboard
  • 2 hot tubs
  • horseshoes
  • cornhole
  • firepit
  • sauna
  • movie theater

That's just the fun stuff. You can also have a great time entertaining in the chef-inspired kitchen that is stocked with just about everything you can imagine.

The best thing about this house is that it does not matter what the weather is outside, your vacation will never be ruined by rain, snow or even heat! - review from Erika H.

Get ready to shell out the cash.

A place like this is a bit spendy, there is a price tag that comes along with it. Rental rates per night range from $1750 to $2950 a night depending upon the day and season. But if you're with a large group or few families it's more digestible when you can split that up. It's an experience so you might as well go ahead and splurge on this place.

No extended stays are available right now.

Looking at their availability calendar, at the time of this writing, there is one weekend available in August and all other weekends are booked through the summer. If you're looking for a more extended stay, it'll have to be during the week for three or four days.

After seeing pics of this place you're gonna want to go ahead and book this place for a couple of nights. When you stay at Slideaway Hideaway keep an eye out for Big Foot too.
