The Tulsa metropolitan area is sprawled out across much of northeastern Oklahoma, a region called “Green Country” because its heavily-forested areas form a contrast to the plains in other parts of the state. It has become a popular tourist area, with its mild climate, as well as an abundance of lakes and state parks. While downtown Tulsa offers lively urban attractions, those who prefer the peacefulness of suburban or even countryside living can opt to stay in Sapulpa, a small city just 14 miles (23 kilometers) from Tulsa’s city center. With creeks, lakes, and parks aplenty, Sapulpa can offer some impressive Airbnb vacation rentals for your holidays.
Close to Sapulpa are two fast-growing Tulsa suburbs, Glenpool and Jenks, and both offer serene and scenic accommodations that seem far away from the urban hustle. This guest room for two is set in a spacious, ranch-style home in a quiet neighborhood that overlooks a pond. You may think that private transportation may be necessary to reach eateries and convenience stores, but think again: within walking distance are pizzerias, fast-food joints, and even a Walmart Supercenter. This is a rare accommodation option that combines peacefulness with convenience.

Across the Arkansas River, on the other side of downtown Tulsa, are quiet suburban neighborhoods which offer some decent Airbnb choices. This guest room is just 10 minutes from the city center, and can accommodate up to four guests. The set-up is no-frills, but everything that is needed for a comfortable stay seems to be available here. And while you are here, you can explore the nearby Turkey Mountain Urban Wilderness, a huge park where you can go hiking, trail-running, or mountain-biking.

This is a luxurious log cabin in the middle of a huge, privately-owned property in the Jenks suburb of Tulsa. Check out the plush king size bed, whirlpool bath, and even an outdoor fireplace by the patio which, by the way, overlooks a beautiful 35-acre (14 hectare) lake. Located just minutes away from downtown Tulsa, the property is usually used for office retreats or wedding receptions. Still, the hosts assure that, even if there are such events happening during your stay, the property is large enough so that you will still feel secluded and away from the crowd.

Sapulpa is home to several interesting museums, three of which are lined side by side along E Lee Avenue: the Sapulpa Fire Museum, the Sapulpa Historical Museum, and the Waite Phillips-Barnsdall Filling Station Museum. These document the history of the city, while a fourth one, the Heart of Route 66 Auto Museum, collects antique cars for display. So, check them out if you are based in Sapulpa accommodations such as this cozy guest room nestled in a quiet, serene location. Besides the basic amenities, the hosts also have a treadmill and weights for you to work up a sweat.
Private Room and Bathroom Just Outside of Tulsa
Nestled in a neighborhood right off the major I44 interstate, this private room is conveniently located 6 minutes away from Tulsa Hills Shopping Center. Not only is it well connected to the Tulsa bus route, the host also provides a bicycle for you to explore the Tulsa bike trails and more of the neighborhood if you wish to! Basic amenities such as a spotlessly clean bathroom, a well-equipped kitchen, and laundry facilities are provided.

At 1,469 miles (2,364 kilometers) long, the Arkansas River that cuts through Tulsa is the sixth-longest river in the US, and 45th-longest in the world. While there is still some commercial barge traffic going on, most of the stretch of river along Tulsa is used for recreational purposes, with parks and trails abounding. If you are keen to explore riverside recreation, then this guest room for two makes a great accommodation choice, being in a bungalow right next to the river. The hosts recommends watching the sunset from the room, and it is undoubtedly a great way to relax.

Yet another wondrously rustic accommodation in Jenks that is incredibly just off the main highway is this snug guest room for two is within the premises of a 40-acre (16 hectare) ranch. Chill out and unwind in the large backyard, which has comfortable sofas and armchairs as well as a BBQ grill pit. And since the accommodation is so accessible, you can plan a stay in October and catch the Art on Main festival in downtown Jenks, which features Oklahoma artists, wineries, and live jazz bands. The festivities go all the way through the winter months, as the shops will be decorated in preparation for the holiday season.

Being on the border of Tulsa’s urban metropolitan area, Sapulpa has its share of rural residences dotted around, such as this guesthouse on a 21-acre (8.5 hectare) plot of land in a gated community. Though just mere minutes away from the city center, you feel as if you’re worlds away in the arms of nature with no sign of neighbors around. You can chill out by the outdoor patio or the snug sofas indoors; you can also go fishing, sun-bathing, or hiking by the clear pond on the premises. The hosts even have two kayaks and a pedal boat available for you to row/pedal gently around the pond.

Oklahoma has a rich Native American past, being the end point of the Trail of Tears in which 16,000 Cherokee Indian people were relocated via in the 19th century. Some of this Native American history lingers on in Tulsa, in places such as the Creek Council Oak Park where the first town hall meeting in Tulsa was held under an oak tree. This cozy and private cottage studio for two guests is just two blocks away from the park, and is also close to other parks such as the Veterans Park and the River Parks. There is also a patio with water features and seats in the cottage, if you prefer to laze about on the premises.
