I’m always up for a great road trip full of adventures and exploring new places whether with my family or a group of girlfriends. Today I’m sharing Part One of our road trip to The Pioneer Woman Mercantile in Pawhuska, Oklahoma and the charming Air B & B we stayed in.
It was fun to check this destination off my bucket list.
I took along three of my great friends who are part of my staff at White Arrows Home The Shop in Minocqua, Wisconsin.
The final destination for our road trip was Dallas. The Shop was nominated for a Retailer in Excellence Award and the winners would be announced at an event in conjunction with The Dallas Market.
When I suggested that we drive down and make a stop at Pioneer Woman on the way, the girls immediately agreed. This is part of what makes great road trip companions! The eagerness to see new things. These girls also were the perfect travels because they were constantly positive, flexible and fun.
We left Wisconsin and went through Minnesota. (Said hello to some Vikings.)
Then went through Iowa. I went to college in Iowa and lived there for seven years after college, teaching school. We didn’t drive through the area I lived in, but I had been telling the girls some special things about Iowa and mentioned eating Maid Rites.
Then, we happened to stop at an Amish Store that had a Maid-Rite restaurant attached. A Maid-Rite is a lot like a sloppy joe, it’s a loose meat burger.
(See how the photo shows the words backwards? It’s an easy fix on an iPhone. I need to go double check my camera. Go under Camera in Settings and scroll down to Mirror Front Camera and switch the toggle off.)
We went through a little bit of Missouri and then Kansas arriving in Oklahoma. This part of Oklahoma is absolutely beautiful with rolling green pasture lands.
One of my favorite things traveling is staying in boutique hotels and beautiful places. For this trip I found a super cute Air B & B right near downtown Pawhuska and walking distance to the Pioneer Woman Mercantile, The Farmhouse Relatively Near the Prairie.
It was a charming farmhouse, comfortable and decorated with every detail special. The big wrap around front porch was so welcoming with ceiling fans, rockers and a porch swing.
The front gardens were so pretty. Next door to the Farmhouse was the Cottage, both share an amazing backyard.
The Farmhouse had five bedrooms, all with private attached bathrooms. The Studio, available to rent separately next door has one bedroom and bathroom. It makes the perfect set up for a group to stay.
The living room of the Farmhouse had plenty of room to gather.
A primary bedroom was located on the first floor.
I loved the details throughout the home like this American flag in the entry. Everything was themed so well, without over doing it, to the location near the Oklahoma prairie.
A farmhouse style entry bench with a windmill pillow and buffalo plaid blanket added to the seating on the first floor and gave an added drop zone by the front door.
Items like this buffalo door stop are a perfect example of the owners fun attention to detail.
Iron carvings for signage like door numbers on each room, the sign outside the home, and other pieces like the light switches were a gorgeous touch.
The primary bathroom was spacious and luxurious with a vanity of double sinks, a glass shower and clawfoot tub.
The kitchen table provided lots of seating under beautiful lighting.
The styling on the open kitchen shelves provided space for more farmhouse touches with many galvanized pieces.
Do you collect the Starbucks state mugs? I have a Wisconsin one and loved how they had the Oklahoma one on display.
It was an easy open floor plan to enjoy the whole space with a group.
The outside patio was unanimously our favorite spot. With the twinkle lights and fun decor it was a beautiful spot to enjoy the evening.
We arrived at the Farmhouse in the evening so went downtown and got pizza to go, brought it back and enjoyed it here on the patio.
Every farmhouse needs a dinner bell.
Check out this charming, creative swing seat.
The outdoor fireplace reminiscent of a barn’s silo was a striking architectural accent.
We didn’t have access to the cute studio next door, but could see how perfect it would be to rent both for a bigger group.
I highly recommend staying at The Farmhouse Relatively Near the Prairie when you plan your visit to The Pioneer Woman Mercantile in Pawhuska, Oklahoma. It was the perfect place to stay.
Keep following along. Tomorrow I’ll be sharing about The Mercantile and our breakfast there. The Farmhouse was an easy walk downtown to The Mercantile, making it so convenient. Anytime we can add walking into our trip it’s a bonus!
