‘Romancing the Stone’: Popular Vacation Rental in Oklahoma Available for $739K

Stone Cabin Hides in the Pines


Instead of a typical log cabin, this popular cabin in Broken Bow, OK, is clad in stone.

On the market for $739,000, “Romancing the Stone” is a luxury cabin that’s in demand on vacation rental sites.

“It got its name when we were sitting around a campfire. We narrowed it down to a couple of names, and we figured ‘Romancing the Stone’—since there aren’t that many stone cabins,” says listing agent and cabin owner Maureen Kile, with Coldwell Banker. “It would play on the movie, and it’s something people would remember.”

The two-bedroom cabin was built in 2016 and measures just under 1,400 square feet.

“It’s got a real rustic tin roof in the living room that is kind of cool,” Kile says. “It just feels really open when you walk in and is flooded with natural light. The double-sided fireplace catches our eye because it’s floor-to-ceiling.”

As you’d expect in a country cabin, wood walls are everywhere. However, the kitchen adds a distinctive pop of color.

“I love the cabinets in the kitchen. It’s like an aqua kind of blue, and it’s so beautiful,” Kile says.

But the kitchen isn’t the only unique thing about this cabin. In a universe where farmhouse style reigns supreme, the rocky exterior sets this place apart. A facade with multiple windows means this isn’t a dark and gloomy cabin inside.

“It stands out because of the rock—since most of them have wood exteriors,” Kile says. “The newer ones are more of a farmhouse style.”

In 2019, HGTV filmed a segment at the house when a family from Texas with a new baby wanted to buy a vacation cabin the in area. “It was the one they selected,” Kile says.

Kile bought the place about nine months ago, and it’s been a popular rental, going for between $280 and $375 a night.

“I stay there myself every once in a while, but it’s hardly ever open for me to do that,” she says.

It sits within a national forest in Hochatown, an area about three hours away from the larger cities of Shreveport, LA, Dallas, and Oklahoma City. Tucked in the southeast corner of the Sooner State, it’s an area that’s growing in popularity. The cabin is also close to Broken Bow Lake.

“There are a ton of pine trees, and it’s a very off-the-grid-type thing,” Kile explains. “People like to come there from those directions to get away. The phone doesn’t work very well when you’re surrounded by pine trees, so it’s a great place to relax and spend time with your family and get away.”

The sale price includes the pool table, hot tub, and fire pit.

“Everything is in there, all the way down to the silverware,” Kile says.
