Oklahoma is home to over 200 lakes, most of which are man-made. In fact, we have more man-made lakes than any other state in the U.S.! Our lakes offer Oklahomans over a million surface acres to play and relax on and more miles of shoreline than the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic coasts combined!

It’s no wonder that we have some amazing lake houses for rent in Oklahoma to help families enjoy our spectacular Oklahoma lakes! Keep reading for our curated list of top 5 Oklahoma VRBO pet-friendly vacation rental lake houses with large group accommodations!

Whether it’s with extended family or framily (friends who have become family), we have often been known to travel in a large pack! The best way we have found to do that is to rent houses or condos that accommodate large groups.


And since we have recently added two new puppies (Bear and Daisy) to our crew, finding a place where we can take them (and, of course, our old guy, Hershey) along with us for a getaway is really important.

Just because we want to take the pets along, though, doesn’t mean we’re willing to compromise on cleanliness. The Oklahoma VRBO large group lake house rentals that we recommend all boast spic and span reviews!

I know what you’re thinking…”This all sounds great, but get to the list, already, Melissa!”

Okay, okay…here you go!

Sanders Island View at Lake Texoma

This jewel has so much to offer that you might not even notice it’s not right on the lake! You can see Lake Texoma from the property (although the trees block much of the view in the summertime), and it’s just a short walk down to the shore.

Back at the house, though, you can have a dozen friends hanging out in the game room playing pool, watching movies, popping popcorn, and sipping on drinks from your own soda fountain!

All the details…

  • Sleeps 12
  • 4 bedrooms (1 downstairs, 3 upstairs)
  • 3 king beds, 3 full beds
  • 3 full bathrooms with double sinks (one is a jack-n-jill bath). In the pictures, it appears that there is also a ½ bath downstairs, but it’s not stated in the listing.

What we love…

  • Modern farmhouse interior
  • Double ovens in the kitchen
  • Washer/dryer on both floors
  • Game room with pool table, movie projector, popcorn machine, and soda fountain
  • Upstairs balcony

If we could change anything…

  • Wish it had a bit more of a lake view

Sunset Shores at Lake Eufaula

There is plenty of space for everyone in this spacious property that will sleep 20 (yes, you read that correctly…20) of your favorite people! The kids will have the ultimate sleepover in the bunk room, while the grown-ups enjoy their own private rooms.

Bring all your water toys! The large parking space is big enough for multiple vehicles and trailers. Once your boats and jet skis are in the water, you can anchor or beach them in the cove while you enjoy a meal on the outdoor patio or roast some marshmallows around the firepit.

All the details…

  • Sleeps 20
  • 4 bedrooms

What we love…

  • Right on the lake with beach access
  • Great patio with lots of seating
  • Split bedrooms/bathrooms (2 beds/1 bath on each side of the house)
  • Extra hot water storage tank, so everyone can have a hot shower

If we could change anything…

  • Would be nice if there was one more bathroom since the house sleeps 20 people

Bar Harbor at Lake Eufaula

The unique tri-level design of this updated home gives you the opportunity to experience the beautiful view of Lake Eufaula from multiple vantage points! Hang out around the firepit on the upper deck or spend some quiet time in the hammock down on the ground level as you listen to the waves lap against the shore.

The kids may not get a ton of sleeping done in the bunkroom. They’ll be too busy with their all-night pool tournaments! This is a place where lifelong memories will be made!

All the details…

  • Sleeps 12

  • Large balcony deck with built-in seating and fire pit
  • Updated interior with large kitchen island
  • Bunk room with pool table
  • Lots of trees in the backyard with horseshoes and a hammock

If we could change anything…

  • There is a ramp to the upper deck, but the house is tri-level. The inside levels are not handicap accessible.
  • No wifi. You’ll have to wait until you get home to share those amazing sunset photos, but it will give you a good opportunity to enjoy your time without distractions. There is satellite TV available.

Duck Creek at Grand Lake O’ The Cherokees

You can’t get much closer to the water than this! Drop your boat or jet skis into the water at the nearby marina and tie them up to the private dock. The dock is also great for fishing or swimming! Multiple decks give you plenty of outdoor options, and you can even leave your dog in the fenced area while you take your boat over to one of the restaurants close by that offer dining on the water.

The house provides two bedrooms with private bathrooms upstairs and a bunkroom with its own bathroom and separate entrance downstairs. There is also a queen sofa bed in the living room. Bring the whole crew!

  • Property is on Duck Creek, which is more of a cove/narrow channel than open lake. Seems like it might be best suited for those who have boats/jet skis to get out to open water. Guests say that swimming and fishing off the dock is great, though.

Cookson Hills at Lake Tenkiller

The log cabin design and view of Lake Tenkiller put this beauty on the list for us! Who could resist a log porch swing sunset view overlooking the treetops with a gorgeous lake in the distance?

The rustic charm of this cabin provides the perfect setting for a family or friends gathering, but it can also be a great home base for all the activities Lake Tenkiller State Park has to offer (hiking, swimming, scuba diving, etc.).
