When my sweet blogging buddy Rachel over at Pencil Shavings Studio started writing about Carlton Landing, Oklahoma, my interest was piqued. It was only 4 hours away and it provided everything I wanted for a vacation with a small child- a lake experience combined with a lovely quaint town full of wonderful and inviting people. I can’t say enough about this place. It’s perfect. Absolutely perfect.
Our days were spent on the lake or at the community pool, and our evenings were spent strolling around the town enjoying the perfect weather and talking to the lovely people that lived there.
Lunch was from the airstream food truck run by a former Top Chef contestant. Yep. I just said that. BEST. FOOD. EVER.
They even had a community garden with chickens.
After the baby went to bed, Ian and I played board games, watched TV and just enjoyed “us” time. It was the best vacation we’ve ever had. Completely stress free, perfect accommodations, everything we could ever want in a vacation with a little guy. We were not in the mood to fly with a baby (yes we COULD, doesn’t mean we want to) nor did we want to drive more than 4-5 hours somewhere.
I can’t suggest this place enough. Haha, Ian and I are even looking into purchasing property there. It was THAT AMAZING.
It was lovely.
