  • Introduction

    Lago Vista Bed and Breakfast-Sign

    Welcome to Lago Vista Bed and Breakfast, sitting on a mountainside over looking beautiful Broken Bow Lake and surrounded by the Ouachita National Forest in Broken Bow, Oklahoma. Each room boasts a spectacular view of the water. You will have a hard time deciding if you want to be in your plush surroundings or outside on your balcony to enjoy the fabulous view of our Oklahoma Lake.

    When you first arrive, you'll be struck by the Tuscan appearance, which is very different from all the log cabins in the surrounding area. Just inside the front doors of our Oklahoma Bed and Breakfast, you are surrounded by antiques, which you will barely notice because the view of the Broken Bow Lake out the back window will take your breath away! And it only gets better.

    Lago Vista Bed and Breakfast-Kitchenette Area

    Breakfast is served daily in the dining area, or brought up to your room if requested.

    Complimentary cocktails are served each evening while star-gazing from the decks. The outdoor hot tub and fireplace also provide a gorgeous setting for your enjoyment. In the first floor media room, enjoy movies on the big screen and a game room complete with a pool table and games to enjoy.
