Welcome to Medicine Park! “Home on the Rock” is an inviting A-frame located on Big Rock Road, a windy back road full of beautiful private homes and quirky cabins. My family and I love our home and are honored to share it with you. Come relax on the deck and watch the birds and the deer, or on cold evenings sit in front of the fireplace—I promise, you’ll feel hours away from the noise of the city instead of minutes.
You are renting the bottom floor of a private home, in the true spirit of Airbnb, but we will be off-site during your stay. There is a beautiful private bedroom with a large queen sized bed and walk-in closet. The bedroom television has Roku for streaming Netflix, Hulu, etc., and you are welcome to use my Sling TV account. The attached bathroom has an amazing corner tub to soak away a long day, which converts to a shower as well. The living room has a comfy sectional for seating or sleeping extra guests (we also have a queen sized air mattress), as well as a smart-tv and X-box for streaming or game-play. Enjoy the wood-burning fireplace from both the living room and the dining room, and curl up with a good book. There’s a bookshelf on the upstairs landing, feel free to take a paperback with you, but please leave the hard covered books behind for everyone to enjoy. If you have any good reads you’re finished with, there is plenty of room to add to the collection. There is a modern kitchen with all appliances, including a washer and dryer—feel free to cook! The deck is amazing, and equipped with plenty of seats to watch the hawks soar, and a grill to catch whatever trout you caught in Medicine Creek. If you’re coming to enjoy Lake Lawtonka, go ahead and bring the boat—the driveway is huge.
We’ll do what we can to make your stay with us hassle-free, and to give you a place to make great memories. You will have free Wi-Fi, fresh towels and linens, and enough coffee and breakfast treats to get you started on your first few days (but be sure and treat yourself to Mrs. Chadwick’s www.facebook.com/Mrs-Chadwicks-Bakery-118508471561890/ or Cobblescones www.facebook.com/Cobblescones/ at least once or twice while you’re here!). I’ll have a hairdryer for you to save you space when you pack, as well as bath soap and bubbles (what’s the point of a huge tub without bubbles?). If you forget your shampoo and conditioner, or your toothbrush and toothpaste, I will have extra on hand for just such an emergency. In the cooler months, the wood for your first fire is on us.
The area is serene, surrounded by nature, with hiking trails right from back-yard. It’s the perfect place to celebrate a special milestone, or to reconnect with family and friends.

Activities: Bath Lake, fishing, hiking, Base Camp Adventure Outfitters https://www.facebook.com/basecampmedicinepark/, Lake Lawtonka www.lakelubbers.com/lake-lawtonka-725/ and Mount Scott and the Wichita Wildlife Refuge https://www.fws.gov/refuge/Wichita_Mountains/visit/plan_your_visit.html will keep you busy! The wildlife refuge has trails for all skill levels, and easy hikes done on Saturday mornings that can be coordinated at the visitor center. Our music festivals draw thousands www.facebook.com/Medicine-Park-Events-192185680808519/, so get your reservations in early on festival weekends.
Restaurants like Cock Eyed Bobs www.facebook.com/CockEyed-Bobs-Cobblestone-Cafe-428220950672417/, Old Plantation Inn www.theoldplantationrestaurant.com/, Riverside Café, The Park Tavern www.facebook.com/parktavernMP/, Ann’s Country Kitchen www.facebook.com/Anns-Country-Kitchen-327938760634231/, Mrs. Chadwick’s and Cobblescones will keep you happy and send you back to the cabin with left-overs.
For those who don’t want to get too far into the wilderness, it’s easy to forget that Lawton is 15 miles away, with shopping, dining, casinos http://apachecasinohotel.com/, museums like the Great Plains Museum www.discovermgp.org/, the Comanche Museum and Cultural Center http://www.comanchemuseum.com/, and the Ft. Sill Museum www.army.mil/Museum/FSNHLM/. Speaking of Ft. Sill…they only graduate from Basic Training ONCE. Stay in Medicine Park and make it memorable.
Finally, if you can walk into Comanche Shirt Company www.comancheshirtcompany.com/ or the Red Door Gallery www.reddoor-mp.com/ and leave empty handed, you have more willpower than I do! Everyone in this magical community knows in our hearts that “life’s better at the park.” I hope that in sharing our home, you’ll come to love this area too.
