Broken Bow Family Trip 2020

Oct 29, 2020 | 4 comments

We had such a nice family get away the last three days at one of our favorite places! We try to come to Broken Bow aka Hochatown each year and it’s one of the kids most talked about trips that they look forward to. I shared our cute cabin on stories this week and had a lot of questions about who we rented from and things to do so I thought I’d compile all of the answers in one post to send out.

This was my first time using Lakewood Luxury Cabins and we had a wonderful experience with them. We stayed in their Shadow Dancer cabin they just built and started renting this month. It is so beautiful! I loved the layout of everything-you can view the mini tour I did on my instagram under my Broken Bow highlight.

The cabin has two masters and then upstairs is basically an entire kids floor with two built in bunks, living area, bathroom, game area, and balcony. I’m almost certain the couch can pull out too.

We last minute decided to bring our sweet boy, Chief, who turned two. He had the best time and loved getting to do what he does best. Sleep.

It rained the entire time we were here so we didn’t get to do everything we had planned (go karts, canoeing, hiking, and a few other places) but we did enjoy just hanging out and playing at the cabin in the creek, shopping a little bit, visiting the petting zoo, panning for arrowheads, and visiting some of our favorite restaurants.

We always try to eat two meals at the cabin and one out. Pro tip: make an online grocery order the day before you go at Pruetts in Broken Bow. We had them ready when we drove in and was loaded up and off to our cabin in 10 minutes. This keeps us stuck to our list and from over buying food. Hochatown is going to be expensive to eat out as it has gotten more touristy over the years so we usually stick to this schedule and it works out fine.

Some of our favorite places to eat & shop:

We had the best time just getting to be together. The girls played a lot on the play set outside, we cooked s’mores, played lots of ball with Chief, napped, watched movies, hot tub after the kids went to sleep, enjoyed reading and cooked some treats. I will say if you bring kiddos, go grab a cheap set of walkie talkies and rain boots to take! The girls had so much fun with those running around our place and keeps their feet dry. We usually carve pumpkins while we are here too but everywhere was out. We usually come third week of October though so we hit it a little late.

If you have any other questions let me know! This is one of our favorite things to do every year and we are actually coming back in December for our anniversary. I can’t wait!

    We love Broken Bow so much! We’ve been going there for over 24 years now and it never gets old. Great pictures!

    There’s also a Grateful Head in Hot Springs if you ever make your way there.
