About Steve and Melissa Henderson
My wife & I have always loved the lake life. My family has owned lake property in Oklahoma for a couple of generations, and I grew up with summers at the lake fishing and skiing. The times spent at the lake have always been cherished memories, and my wife and I wanted that for our family! We have been searching for the last 4 years to find the perfect home to spend summers with family & friends and THIS was it!!! We would like to share our home with you too, so that you can make lasting memories with family and friends as well.
Steve and Melissa Henderson purchased this House in 2018
Why Steve and Melissa Henderson chose Morgan
Lake Whitney has been known for it's clear water, great fishing & just it's sheer size. When it's a 3 day weekend and you want to go boating - so does everyone else! On this lake you can DO that!!! There is so much room that the lake has several coves for skiing and wake-boarding without having to dodge all the other boats. These coves make for excellent fishing as well. The cliffs on the lakes edge are simply magnificent and breathtaking to look upon.
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with the serenity and the wide open space. The views from the deck whether watching the sunrise, star gazing, or just visiting with friends and family provides a relaxed, stress free setting. We enjoy watching the deer wander through our yard, and the hawks making lazy circles over the tree tops in the distance. The community cove is another enjoyable perk to this property. We enjoy a quick dip in the Lake in the summer evenings as the sun is beginning to set. The high cliffs surrounding the cove always keep the waters calm, and give a breathtaking backdrop to our swim. There are numerous hiking trails at and around the property. You can walk to the secluded cove (about a 10-15 minute walk) from the back yard of the property. Spectacular views of the lake can be witnessed on the hiking trail on the Corp of Engineering land near the house. Walks are just breathtaking on these trails especially at sunrise and sunset.

Great Family Vacation Gem
This cabin is such a great vacation gem! We had 3 families come together to get away from the city life. All we did was fish, hike, swim, laugh, eat and play all sorts of games! We had kids that have never had a chance to experience outdoor life and now they LOVE it! Highly recommend getting this cabin for a vacation spot! The party barn was everyone’s favorite along with drinking coffee on the beautiful porch and watching the sun rise and deer enjoying life. Totally worth every penny!
Thank you for the glowing review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Hopefully you were able to catch a lot of fish. We love that the kids had such a great time. Please think of us again for your vacation getaway.

What a great place!
This property is amazing. It has everything you need for a great stay! The house has all you need and the barn has games and lake stuff. The private cove is wonderful to swim and fish. We really enjoyed the deee that came out in the morning and afternoon. We only stayed 2 nights but will be back for a little longer stay.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful property with us.
Thank you for a great review. We are pleased you enjoyed all that Bridgeview Lodge has to offer. Lake Whitney is one of the top places to fish in the state. Maybe next time a fish fry will be in the cards. We hope that you come back to stay soon.
