An idyllic rural getaway, the Farmhouse on Clear Creek feels like a private state park, but one with several complete works of Shakespeare. The house is filled with curios. Outside, you can explore Clear Creek in the summer and 250 acres of woods and pasture in the winter. There is no Wi-Fi, and most likely no cellular service. There is, however, a portable record player with an eclectic assortment of records – 33s, 45s, and even 78s.

The space
This is a place someone who doesn't like the outdoors can be perfectly content visiting. There are probably 3000 books. Conversely, someone could also be content never going indoors. There are 250 acres of pasture, creek, and woods to explore.

You can see lights from the neighbors at night, but they are about a quarter mile away. Our house is closer, but you can barely see it from the farmhouse. You’re more likely to see the Milky Way in the summer.

The bed has a new Saatva standard mattress, not a queen. If two people want to visit here but not share a bed, there is a twin sofa bed with a new memory foam mattress, which would go to the guest who drew the short straw. Those negotiations are up to you. Know that there is only one bathroom and it is off the bedroom. If you don’t mind sharing a double hotel room with someone, you’ll be fine in the farmhouse.

You’ll have to figure out your own food. We supply kitchen essentials and some snacks but no ingredients for meals. We can tell you some places to eat, but the nearest hamburger is at the gas station eight miles away, and the nearest fork that isn’t plastic is in Tahlequah, about 25 minutes away. Plan accordingly.

Why wouldn’t you stay here? If your idea of rustic is Silver Dollar City, just go to Branson. This is an Oklahoma farm. Everything needs attention. There are ticks in the spring and chiggers in the summer. No one who lives here takes a picture of themselves blissed out enjoying nature while standing in tall grass. That’s a good way to get the itchies, so just don’t do it. You might see a snake in the summer, most likely a black rat snake, and rarely a copperhead. Both are cool as long as you leave them alone. You’ll see a spider in the farmhouse, guaranteed. And given that this is rural Oklahoma it is entirely possible to hear gun shots. No one is shooting at you or at anybody else. It’s practice. If that stuff bothers you, maybe try someplace else less rural. And currently there is no WiFi. This place is analogue, practically and poetically.

Why would you stay here? Because this is one of the most beautiful pieces of land in the state, and the farmhouse reflects the collections of interesting people. It is quiet, peaceful, isolated, and bucolic. Everything is real. There is a deck overlooking the lower pasture and a bluff that provides endless opportunity to watch wildlife.

Speaking of wildlife, we have two dogs, one of which is known to abandon our house in favor of new people at the farmhouse. You're probably going to have a dog hanging out with you.

There are a lot of gravel and two-lane blacktop roads nearby for cyclists to explore. Nature photographers will go nuts.

Those who knit will like to know that this is the headquarters for Lost City Knits, but we do not have a physical shop here. The studio is a workspace and a warehouse. It is not set up for customers. However, we are happy to pull some yarn lines out for you and have them in the farmhouse so you can imagine what you might do. We can sell from our stock, but the experience won’t be like shopping in a yarn store.

Because we want to be cautious regarding Covid we are spacing out how often the farmhouse is used. At least three days will pass before the house is available again to give time for a safe cleaning.

People spending more than one night could take a day trip to Tahlequah, explore gravel roads in our neck of the woods, take a day and go to Crystal Bridges Museum of Modern Art in Bentonville, Arkansas, or just hang out here, watch the pasture, and walk in the creek.

Guest access
You have the entire farmhouse to yourself. There is a three acre yard that I keep mowed, and pastures that have tall grass in the summer, although I keep a trail mowed to the creek.

Across the farmyard is our studio, a garage, and the oak barn. None are open to guests, although you are certainly welcome to use the barn for photos.

There are some other outbuildings, and none are open to guests unless we issue an invitation.

The creek is a three minute walk if you dawdle. It is perfect for wading, and there is at least one swimming hole, right below our own house.

In the winter you can explore woods, but we need to discuss where you would go until you get familiar with the place.

We live on a 250 acre farm in northeast Oklahoma where we operate a small business, Lost City Knits, which offers imported and private-label yarns to intrepid knitters. Small-time, for sure, but happy.
During your stay
We live on site, about 300 feet from the farmhouse, and are happy to offer advice, talk, tell stories about the place, or hang back if you want to be alone.
