Broken Bow Family Trip 2020

Broken Bow Family Trip 2020

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!

Anniversary Weekend

Anniversary Weekend

We spent our 5 year anniversary tucked away in the woods. It was the most relaxing get away we’ve ever had and definitely our favorite anniversary trip thus far. We booked this gorgeous cabin for a two night stay in Broken Bow.It was absolutely gorgeous and cozy. They literally thought of everything from cooking utensils, board games, extra blankets, soap, laundry detergent, etc. I loved that they decorate the cabins for Christmas too. They had a journal in the living room area where guests would sign and talk about their stay. So neat to see where everyone came from. We grabbed groceries on our way down and brought steaks to grill for our Anniversary dinner. For lunch, we went to The Grateful Head Pizza and it was amazing and such a unique atmosphere. We toured Hochatown and I really wanted to bring this guy back with us for a front porch greeter. We spent most of our time watching movies by the fire, in the hot tub when it was 15 degrees outside, and just enjoying each others company. Zack made us a fire on our first night so we could have smores.I can’t wait to go back. It was nice to get a way  from everything and just get back to us. We talked about how much life we’ve gone through over the last 5 years and where we wanted to be or try to accomplish over the next 5-10-and 20. I’m so thankful for my husband and best friend. He makes this life so sweet and blesses me more than I can say. Thank you for this trip, babe. You love me so well and I’m constantly amazed at how God has written this love story. Love you to Heaven.
