Prairie Chicken House
Prairie Chicken House is a nostalgic architect-designed wonder that represents the ultimate in escapism, set on the prairies of Oklahoma.
We can say (or cluck) this confidently: you have never stayed, and will never again stay, in a home quite like the Prairie Chicken House.
Unique and breathtaking, the home (so-called because of its resemblance to a prairie chicken) was designed by famed architect Herb Greene back in 1961, as an example of organic architecture - a movement that harmonises human habitation with the natural world.
The result, a 2,100-square feet, two-storey home imaginatively constructed from natural materials, inspires a warm sense of place, as well as providing the ultimate setting for soul-refreshing relaxation on the Oklahoma prairie.
Featuring two bedrooms, a bathroom and a kitchen on the lower level, you'll find the upper is completely dedicated to lounging and entertaining, complete with views that stretch out over the surrounding countryside.
Attention to detail is paramount here, with natural light and weather conditions harnessed to their most dazzling effect in every part of the house. Deep-pile carpets add an authentic sense of style, and you may not want to tear yourself away from the built-in window seat, with its stunning views of the weather-beaten plains.
If you do decide to venture out, downtown Oklahoma City is a mere 25-minute drive away. Yet if you choose to hole up in the Prairie Chicken House and immerse yourselves in its unique beauty for the duration of your stay, we wouldn't blame you. It just happened to be built that way.
