State border towns, no matter big or small, often serve as a necessary pit-stop for drivers on their long road journeys through America. The tiny town of Thackerville is precisely that. It lies just five miles (eight kilometers) from the state line between Oklahoma and Texas, and is also on one of the two highways connecting two major US cities, Oklahoma City and Dallas. Despite its tiny size, Thackerville does have a fair share of eateries around, as well as one huge casino resort. Several great accommodation options can also be found around the area, so here are some of the best Airbnb vacation rentals available.

1. Classy guesthouse in Gainesville, Texas (from USD 200)

Thackerville’s counterpart in Texas is the small city of Gainesville, which lies about a 15-minute drive from the border line. Comparing the two, and Gainesville does have a lot more dining and shopping options along its main street, and even has a zoo as part of its attractions. So it is a good alternative pit-stop to Thackerville, and this cozy guesthouse is a fine option for families of up to six members. There are four beds available, and the interior is classy and newly-furbished. There is a grocery store nearby, and the main street is just a short drive away.

2. Outdoor fun near Lake Texoma (from USD 200)

To the east of Thackerville, along the Red River which borders the two states, lies the huge Lake Texoma, a popular outdoor recreational area that attracts about six million visitors per year. As such, there are good accommodation options available if you wish to explore the lake. This homely guesthouse near the lake was refurbished in 2016, so you will get new mattresses, refrigerator, dishwasher and stove. But don’t just stay indoors, because the house opens out to a huge 21-acre (8.4-hectare) backyard, with hiking trails and three fishing ponds. You can also find outdoor swings and electric grills around the house, making it a great place for outdoor fun.

6. Rustic house near wineries

The tiny town of Muenster is a 20-minute drive from Gainesville, and was founded by German-Catholic settlers in the 19th century. It still retains many German customs, and still produces traditional foods at the local meat market. This rustic guesthouse is a few miles off Muenster’s main road, and is close to several wineries in the region. It has beds, kitchen, bathroom and satellite TV, and you can look out for birds, squirrels and deer that may visit the premises.

7. Heritage house with old-time charm

Thackerville’s biggest claim to fame is the WinStar World Casino and Resort, the largest casino resort in Oklahoma. It has eight gaming plazas on its huge premises and famous pop stars like Kelly Clarkson and Maroon 5 have performed sold-out shows at the resort. If you prefer not to stay at the resort, you can try nearby accommodations such as this guestroom in a heritage house in Gainesville that was built in 1893. With its beautiful antique-style furniture, it offers a old-time charm that you probably will not get at the casino resort.

8. Beautiful hideaway with lake views

Just a 20-minute drive west of Thackerville is another beautiful lake, the Hubert M. Moss Lake. Smaller but more secluded than Lake Texoma, it nonetheless offers pretty much similar opportunities for outdoor recreational activities such as fishing, hiking and bird-watching. This huge two-storey guesthouse by the lake can accommodate as many as 12 guests, and has stunning views of the lake from its patios and balconies. There is a wonderful lakeside pavilion for you to chill out, and while there is neither wifi nor TV, the cozy and spacious interiors are perfect for spending quality time with your loved ones, with the tranquil beauty of the lake as the backdrop.

9. Secluded and tranquil wood cabin

Since Lake Texoma is a popular recreational spot for residents of the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area, it may get a little too busy during the peak human traffic seasons. Thankfully, there are several lodgings that are secluded enough such that you can still enjoy the rural serenity on offer. This beautifully-constructed wood cabin near Whitesboro is tucked deep inside the main roads, so that guests can enjoy the remote tranquility along the lake. You can stay within the cabin’s premises and try spotting deer, fox and other wildlife passing by. Or you can go out and enjoy some fishing or bird-watching by the lake. Either way, you will feel as if you have the place to yourself.

10. Quiet cabin minutes off the highway

Stray a little away from the interstate highways, and you are immediately in the expansive Texas countryside. Farmlands stretch as far as the eyes can see, but there are still some interesting accommodation options amid this sparsely populated area. Take this old-school wood cabin for example. It is just a 10-minute drive off the highway turnpike to Gainesville, but there is nothing but tranquility on offer. You can go hiking, fishing and bird-watching, or you can just sit on the front porch and experience the wonderful feeling of solitude.

11. Secluded cabin for outdoor fun

With Lake Texoma sprawled out along the borders of Texas and Oklahoma, there are several towns and cities which can serve as good bases to explore the region. From Thackerville, the most convenient option is Whitesboro, Texas, which is a half-hour-drive away. This snug cabin is tucked deep in a secluded area near Whitesboro, and has two large decks, grills and fire pits, and snug beds for you to unwind. Best of all are the variety of activities available: hiking, biking, fishing, bird-watching, shooting practices at nearby range and, of course, kayaking at the lake.

Things to do along state border

Thackerville may be famous for its huge casino, but it is also close to plenty of outdoor recreation fun. You may need GPS and a well-maintained car to reach to more secluded accommodations, but they are well worth the trouble as they offer beautiful scenic vistas by the huge Lake Texoma. A fantastic area to spend a few days before heading out to the major cities of Dallas or Oklahoma City.
