Income Producing Recreational Cabin – National Forest Area
Location: This “One of a Kind” property is nestled in the heart of the Ouachita National Forest in a beautiful valley setting between Lenox Ridge and the Winding Stair Mountain Range to the North and the majestic Kiamichi Mountain Range to the South. The property is less than ¼ mile from Billy Creek, which is a near year round source of crystal clear water that provides recreational opportunities for fishing and kayaking. The East property boundary fronts a paved county-maintained road (Billy Creek Road). This property is less than 1 mile from the 1.5 million acre Ouachita National Forest, which provides direct access to hunting opportunities for whitetail deer, eastern wild turkey, black bear, wild hog and other small game as well as direct access to an impressive network of ATV, hiking and horseback riding trails that are operated and maintained by the US Forest Service. This property is 1.5 miles southwest of the Billy Creek Campground area. The property is located east of the small community or Muse, OK. Nearby towns include Broken Bow, Hochatown, Talihina and Poteau, which is the county seat. Broken Bow Lake, which offers some of the best fishing in Oklahoma, is only a short 30 minute drive away to the South. Sardis Lake, Cedar Lake and Wister Lake are only minutes away as well. The Talimena Scenic Drive is five miles North of the Cabin. The property is a 1.5 hour drive from Fort Smith, Arkansas and about 3.5 hours from Dallas, Texas.
Property Address: 26607 Hidden Pines Lane; Muse, Oklahoma 74949.
Services to Property: Electricity, rural water, aerobic septic system.
Land: The cabin sits on 1.11 acre (m/l) of surveyed land that is level to gently sloping and completely covered with a nice stand of mature timber that is native to south-eastern Oklahoma inducing a diverse variety of oaks, sweet gum, hickory, eastern red cedar and native shortleaf pine. The land is located inside a gated community with deed restrictions that are design to preserve property values inside the development.
Access: This property has legal and all-weather access by means of a paved county-maintained road (Billy Creek Road). There is a short gravel driveway that extends off Billy Creek road onto the property.
Income Producing Property: This cabin is conveniently located adjacent to the Billy Creek Recreational Area and an impressive network of ATV, hiking and horseback riding trails throughout the 1.5 million acre Ouachita National Forest. The cabin provides direct access to these riding trails and would make a great short term rental property.
Cabin: The cabin is new construction and includes approximately 700 square feet of heated and cooled living space with 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, large kitchen/living room and covered porches. The exterior of the cabin was designed with a virtually maintenance free exterior with vinyl board and batten siding, rock wainscoting, covered porches, composite shingle roof and vinyl siding in the soffit areas. Additionally, the cabin was designed to be very energy efficient to minimize heating and cooling costs with spray foam insulation, vinyl double pain windows with Low-E glass and Argon gas and on demand tankless hot water heater. The interior of the cabin was finished out with a combination of textured sheetrock and rustic tongue and groove white pine, water proof vinyl plank flooring, knotty pine interior doors and custom made cabinetry with leather finished granite counter tops. The level of craftsmanship, attention to detail and quality trim work throughout is very impressive.
Agent’s Comments: This is a beautiful custom built cabin with a high level of craftsmanship, attention to detail and quality trim work throughout. The location provides an ideal setting for a relaxing and peaceful weekend getaway from city life or even a full time residence. No traffic, no hurrying, just simple life away from the hectic city. This is a very unique property that provides access to both Billy Creek and the Ouachita National Forest Recreational Area. This cabin offers “Off the Porch” access to the 4-wheeler, side by side, hiking and horseback riding trails in the National Forest. In my opinion, this property can be classified as true “Investment Grade Recreational Property” with good income producing potential.
