Hugo, Oklahoma is in an amazingly beautiful part of North America. It is in "Kiamichi Country" (Ki-meech') with green, rolling hills, pastures and many lakes, rivers, and creeks. Several Corps of Engineers lakes and parks are in the area. Much of the land you see from the road is populated by either horses or cattle, or else it is a wild tangle of trees, bushes and grasses. This part of Oklahoma is the only place I've ever been where many people have to mow their driveways because the grass grows so quickly and thickly right through the gravel and under the tires. This is a prime outdoor activity area -- hunting, fishing, swiming, boating, atv off-roading and hiking are everywhere. The antique shops in this area are amazing -- within less than 50 miles are more antique shops than I can count, and they all have GOOD stuff -- antique shops are not another name for junk shops around here (but they have lots of those, too).
If your interests are for fall folliage, the Talimena Drive across the mountains between Oklahoma and Arkansas is a wonderful way to spend a fall afternoon. There are many other places to drive to enjoy the fall folliage.
There is a rich history of the Oklahoma Land Rush, one of the Trail of Tears ends near here, and train devotees would enjoy the depot's museum and the Harvey House restaurant. A re-enactment of the last surrender of the Civil War is occasionally held at the original location, Fort Towson. Old Traders' Day is held in February at Fort Towson, too. At the end of October, a candle-lit tour of Doaksville, a small ghost town near Hugo, is held four times per night, for four nights, with period-costumed actors illustrating the vignettes along the tour.
One of my first thoughts about the Inn was that it would be a good place for a certification "boot-camp" with a teacher and 5-8 students. Or, possibly a place for small board meetings; "red-herring" presentations; CEO, CFO, or other confidential interviews; and other meetings requiring concentration or seclusion.
Hugo is within three hours' drive from Tulsa OK, Oklahoma City OK, Texarkana, and Dallas/Ft. Worth TX. It is a little longer to Little Rock AK and Shreveport.
