Local Attractions


If you want to give yourself the gift of time, relaxation, or both, then the Back 40 Retreat is for you. The great outdoors is at your back door and you can enjoy a beautiful Oklahoma sunset from the deck, or get some exercise by taking a nature walk on one of the trails that lead to the cabin.

Maybe you want to take the kids camping but want to pamper yourself too? You can enjoy all the cabin's amenities while the kids pitch a tent right outside.

Southern Pottawatomie County offers some of central Oklahoma's most scenic roads and the area frequently host bicycling and motorcycling tours. Stay with us during one of these events or enjoy the scenery on your own.

Are you a stargazer? The cabin and surrounding acreage offers some great views of the night sky - whether for special viewing events or just to see the stars like you haven't seen them in a while.
