Nestled on Oklahoma’s largest lake, Lake Eufaula is this quaint urban resort community – Carlton Landing Family Cottage Resort. Known for its tranquil, scenic views and comfortable cottage living, Carlton Landing is the perfect get-away for a relaxing, stress-free vacation for the whole family. My family stayed at Carlton Landing in a comfy cottage home for two nights in exchange for this blog post.
Located just off US Highway 69, Carlton Landing is just a short drive from Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Dallas, and Northwest Arkansas. It took us about 3.5 hours to get there, which made another successful road trip for this summer, not to mention one of the best summer get-a-ways we’ve had that’s close to home.

Carlton Landing offers home buyers the perfect living location to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and permanent vacation homes surrounded by water and rentals for those unique vacations for the whole family to enjoy. Most, if not all, the houses are cottage-style with several floor plans to choose from and lots of luxurious amenities. These photos are just a few of the houses I took pictures of, including the one we stayed in. I was in awe of every one of them!
We stayed on the Boardwalk, an area close to the community pool and a hop skip, and a jump from the dock where all water sports are located. Anywhere you stay in Carlton Landing is a great location. Tracy and I spent quite a bit on the porch (above) watching Brody play outside. My husband took his morning walks around the whole place and came back with all sorts of things to tell me. There’s quite a bit of construction happening here – with new homes going up all over the place.

A couple of restaurants soon open, which will feature gourmet meals made from Carlton Landing’s on-site farm. Farm-to-table is what it’s all about here. There’s also a small General Store that offers hamburgers and such, but most residents and renters bring their food. Carlton Landing is a way to live if you like tight community living. You will get to know your neighbors, and there’s always an event planned for the whole family.

Carlton Landing residents and their renters can enjoy nature trails, kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming in the lake and pool, fishing and lots of relaxation, and most of all, cherished moments with your family. I had the opportunity to meet and talk with a renter first-hand. She and her family are from the Dallas area and spent their summer vacation on the property. I asked her what brought them there, and she said that her husband and boys wanted to be outdoors and do some fishing while she wanted air conditioning and a pool. Carlton Landing was a win-win for all of them. She went on to say that Carlton Landing is the next big thing to happen in that area. She couldn’t say enough about the world-class architect of the buildings. I think she loved it!
Of course, my son’s favorite place was the community pool. He would have stayed all day AND swam in the rain if we let him. Located next to the pool is a nice hot tub, and on the other side is a small splash area.
Gorgeous landscape and beautiful flowers surround the cottage homes. I was in awe while walking around.

On our second day, it rained and rained. I got a chance to take a few pictures of the rain around the cottage we were staying in. I love taking photos after a good pour down. My pics seem to always turn out so gorgeous.
When it rains, it pours.
From what we saw under construction, it’s safe to say that Carlton Landing is growing rapidly and a popular place to be. They even have their private school and wedding chapel.
For a weekend, a week, or a lifetime, check out Carlton Landing today!
