Imagine sitting on the deck of a gorgeous bed and breakfast inn overlooking beautiful Broken Bow Lake as you and your best girlfriends sip wine and catch up. Of course, this is after a day filled with hiking, canoeing and winery adventures. This trip is a gal pal party adventure with plenty of pampering touches like massages, a champagne limo tour and scrumptious breakfasts.
Day One - Sunday
Afternoon - Arrive at Lago Vista Bed & Breakfast in Broken Bow and settle into your well-appointed rooms. This cozy inn, reminiscent of an Italian villa, is located on a mountainside overlooking beautiful Broken Bow Lake and surrounded by the Ouachita National Forest. Each room boasts a spectacular view of the water as well as a Jacuzzi tub, fireplace and private lakeview balcony. The outdoor hot tub and fireplace also provide a gorgeous setting for your enjoyment.
Evening - Kick your adventure off in style with a limo tour of Beavers Bend State Park and Broken Bow Lake complete with champagne and hors d'oeuvres. After taking in the natural beauty of the area, you'll be escorted to dinner at Abendigo's Grill & Patio. The casually elegant atmosphere is the perfect place to keep the vibe going as you enjoy one of the signature tastes of southeastern Oklahoma with steaks, seafood and salads to please every palate. After a gratifying meal, slip back into the limo and return to your Tuscan hideaway where you can kick back with cocktails and enjoy your favorite episodes of "Sex and the City" on the big screen in the media room until midnight.
Day Two - Monday
Morning - Enjoy a hearty breakfast prepared and served to your group in the dining room to get your day started right. It's time to hit the rapids and float the Mountain Fork River with Ambush Adventures. Lago Vista will provide box lunches and beverages for your canoe trip.
Afternoon - Stretch your legs and take a hike through the woods or enjoy the outdoor activities at Beavers Bend State Park. Or you could opt to just relax on the deck or in the common area or enjoy the pool table and big screen TV. Be sure to leave time for a soak in your own Jacuzzi tub with the provided oils, salts and bubbles.
Return to the B & B glowing from your spa experience for a delightful dinner.
Evening - For a brand new adventure, visit Girls Gone Wine where you can enjoy a wine tasting session and then actually make your own batch of wine. You decide what type of wine to make, and the vintners will help you actually start the wine-making process for your private-label batch of 30 bottles that your group will receive after the fermentation process is complete. The gift shop at Girls Gone Wine is packed with fun wine-related gifts and decor items, so get your shop on and have a great time, then relax on the covered patio and sip a glass of your favorite before heading back to the inn for dinner.
Day Three - Tuesday
Morning - Enjoy sleeping in late today and then enjoy your breakfast before beginning your day of pampering.
Afternoon - This day is meant to be enjoyed slowly at Body Harmony Day Spa where you'll revel in soothing massages, invigorating scrubs, wraps, facials and more. It's a whole day of beauty and rejuvenation from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. including lunch.
Evening - Return to the B & B glowing from your spa experience for a delightful dinner. Enjoy a chick flick together or opt to star gaze on the deck or from the hot tub with complimentary cocktails. It's your last night together, so make it a blow out all-night pajama party and gab fest.
Day Four - Wednesday
Morning - Linger over one more breakfast with the spectacular view and then start your journey home. Stop by the Museum of the Red River on your way out of town to marvel at the massive collections of ancient art, artifacts and even a dinosaur that called the area home millions of years ago.
