About the property

1 Bedroom plus sleeping loft, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

The Scenic Ridge Cabin is truly a special place! It's a private retreat located just north of Lawton and Medicine Park, Oklahoma, and is situated in the foothills of the Wichita Mountains. The location features a wrap around patio offering unparalleled panoramic views of Mount Sheridan, Tarbone Mountain, and Mount Scott to the south and the Slick Hills and Blue Canyon Wind Farm to the north.

Our cozy and romantic octagon-shaped cabin is located near the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge, where you will find over 59,000 acres of hiking, climbing, fishing, boating, and wildlife viewing. The famous Meers Restaurant is only two miles to the east and the quaint cobblestone community of Medicine Park is just 15 minutes away.

About David and Dara Wanzer

We have loved coming to the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge and Medicine Park since we moved back to Oklahoma City in 2000. Scenic Ridge Cabin provides us a welcome reset from our day-to-day lives in OKC. We appreciate every opportunity we can to enjoy our cabin and escape our busy lives, but when we can't make it - we love sharing it with others!

David and Dara Wanzer purchased this cabin in 2015

Why David and Dara Wanzer chose Comanche County

We had frequently daydreamed about having a little getaway near the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge and Medicine Park and were thrilled to stumble onto the Scenic Ridge Cabin "for sale" over Memorial Day weekend of 2015. We stayed for a "test" weekend and immediately fell in love with the cabin, with its special location on three acres overlooking Mount Scott, Mount Sheridan, Tarbone Mountain, the Slick Hills and the windmill farm. Our unique octagon shaped cabin has been lovingly and thoughtfully renovated and furnished. The views are incredible, and nothing beats relaxing on the wrap around patio.

What makes this cabin unique

Some of our favorite things about our cabin include: coffee or a glass of wine on the wrap around patio; the artisan touches and finishes; the privacy and solitude; nightly bunny sightings (most often at dusk;) collared lizards hanging out on the rocks; occasional owl sightings; proximity to Meers, Medicine Park, and the Wichita Wildlife Refuge; cooking dinner for a relaxing evening on the couch, watching a movies or a football game; wild turkeys scattered about our neighborhood; our kind neighbors and their sweet and loving dogs.

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend at the cabin with our boys, ages 7 and 3, for a spring break getaway. There was a slight mixup when we arrived, but with an email to the owners, they responded immediately and promptly fixed us right up, even while they were out traveling. The owners obviously take great care and pride in their cabin, and it shows. The cabin was clean and cozy, and the kitchen was very well stocked with all the essentials. Our boys loved hanging out and sleeping in the loft area and playing with the board games and puzzles that were provided. We had a fun, electronic-free weekend exploring and hiking the wildlife reserve that was very nearby. We highly recommend this cabin! Thank you for a memorable spring break trip!

Very well-rounded accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We are so happy that we selected this cabin for our "home away from home" for the Christmas holiday! We loved everything about the cabin inside and out. Very nice décor and furnishings. There are many amenities such as kitchen tools and fuzzy blankets, as well as entertainment -- movies, games, puzzles, books and area guides. We experienced the famous Meers burgers and pecan pie cobbler not far down the road from the cabin, and enjoyed several scenic drives throughout the mountains. Again, we loved the cabin and the area and would highly recommend to anyone!

Great Weekend Escap

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for two nights in mid-November. The cabin was spotlessly clean and well-stocked, and the bed was especially comfortable. The only (minor) complaint we had was that it was dark when we arrived and there were no outside lights on the cabin, making it hard to find! We had a great time and would definitely stay here again!

A relaxing break from the rat race!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were extremely helpful, professional and accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed spending time in the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge hiking and biking. The cabin was well set up as a home away from home. We had a great Thanksgiving break. Thank you!
