Love is in the air. No, we’re not talking about campfire smoke. We’re talking about a romantic road trip to McCurtain County, Oklahoma.
Steamy hot tubs. Gourmet candlelit dinners. Cozy cabins for two. Let’s just say the marshmallows aren’t the only ones who’ll be getting toasty.
Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day, planning a honeymoon, or just looking to rekindle that spark, McCurtain County has everything you need for a romantic rendezvous to remember.
Cuddle Up in the Cabin
Nothing says romance like a luxury cabin. And when it’s tucked away with all the amenities? Enough said. Whatever your needs as a couple, there’s a cabin sure to get the sparks flying. Lush king-size beds. Cozy campfires. Cushy couches with flatscreen TVs. Screened-in porches (wink).
Some even have heart-shaped hot tubs for a night under the stars you — or the deer — won’t soon forget. And if you really feel like indulging, book a couple’s massage. Several local spas offer cabin massage sessions, so you lovebirds won’t even have to leave the nest.
Cabins fill up fast though, especially this time of year. So book your getaway early. With thousands to choose from, there’s a perfect match for you and your special someone.
Put Yourselves Out There
When you’re feeling a little adventurous — in a different way — there are plenty of activities outside the cabin too. Bond in the backwoods on horseback. Get your hearts racing on a zipline. Become more than friends on a hike through Friends Trail Loop.
Looking for something a little more lowkey? There’re also shops, breweries, museums, even a roller rink and an old-timey photo booth. And sunsets over Broken Bow Lake were made for slow, scenic drives. Be sure to turn on your song for bonus points.
Light the Candles and the Grill
No romantic weekend is complete without fine dining. And you won’t have to go far thanks to your cabin’s massive kitchen. Stay in and cook a fancy dinner together, complete with a bottle of wine from a local vineyard. Chocolate covered strawberries from Rolling Fork Takery won’t hurt either. Plus, the hot tub is just steps away when your bellies are full.
If you’re in the mood for something more buttoned up, head into town. The restaurants of McCurtain offer aphrodisiacs for any taste. Steak. Italian. Oysters. Even gourmet pizza and mile-long corn dogs. Many offer takeout and curbside service too, so you can enjoy something more intimate back at the cabin.
Forgot a gift for date night? No sweat. Stop by a local shop for beautiful flowers, handmade chocolates and fudge, and one-of-a-kind keepsakes.
Strike a Pose
Misty mornings. World-famous sunsets. Gorgeous waterfalls. It’s no secret that McCurtain County is breathtaking. So take advantage and plan ahead for a couple’s photo shoot. McCurtain County is home to many talented photographers who know the secret spots for that romantic sunset shot. Next year’s Christmas card won’t know what hit it.
