If you look at a map of Oklahoma, along the Southern Red River border, there's a place right in the middle that dips way down into Texas.

This is called the Big Bend of the Red River. It's also home to Thackerville, a town known to all in North Texas for having a huge casino just over the border.

Just outside of Thackerville, there's a place that rents cabins that have remodeled an old train caboose and outfitted it to be just the place to call home for a weekend.

River of Love Cabins might sound really corny, but if you take a look at the photos, it honestly looks like a great place to turn off the world for a day or two.

Add in all the amenities you've come to expect in a vacation, and you're good to go.

See the photos below.

It's also one of the rare places on TripAdvisor with a nearly-perfect 5/5 rating with over a hundred reviews.

Here's the link to the official website if you're interested.

Check Out This Oklahoma Railroad Car Cabin

If you look around the internet, there is no shortage of cabin rentals across Southern and Southeastern Oklahoma. Some of them are basic with four walls and maybe indoor plumbing... others get really fancy with tons of TVs, billiard rooms, and outdoor chef-worthy kitchens. Most reside somewhere in between.

We've found at least one that seems incredibly unique. It's a converted railroad car out in the middle of peaceful nowhere at River of Love Cabins outside of Thackerville.

Check Out This B&B For Sale In Rush Springs

Depending on where you live, when someone mentions "Rush Springs," you probably have one of two thoughts...

A. I love Rush Springs watermelons!
B. Where is Rush Springs?

If you're not familiar, it's a quiet little rural town of less than 1000 people in Southwest Oklahoma that swells to over 30,000 during their annual Watermelon Festival each year. As you could imagine, there are very limited options for housing and hotels in a town so small, but bed and breakfasts are apparently popular enough to garner an asking price of $800,000.

Looking at the pictures, it's exactly what most people would imagine a B&B to look like in rural America, and likely an inspiration to even more when it comes to design details for your next kitchen remodel. Honestly, even though it's in the middle of nowhere, it's impressive.
