BROKEN BOW, Okla., Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, more than ever, couples need to focus on being a couple and that means spending some time alone together. Marriage experts have identified characteristics of happy couples.  In a good relationship, the commitment to three aspects of the relationship is: (oneself, one's partner, and the relationship). Successful relationships focus on being a couple.

McCurtain County Oklahoma – the Beavers Bend State Park area – is the perfect place to shut out the world and spend that alone time together with your special loved one.  In McCurtain County that time together can include almost any kind of lodging you prefer--from a rustic cottage to modern motels to affordable log cabins with hot tubs and fireplaces nestled in the towering pines, as well as unique bed & breakfasts and luxury resorts.

Charity O'Donnell, Executive Director, McCurtain County Tourism Authority said, "After the busy holidays, is the perfect time of year for special 'alone time.'  Here, you and that special loved one can snuggle in front of a warm, cozy fireplace and just get away from work, traffic, the kids and the hectic big city life. In the Kiamichi Mountains, the two of you can enjoy complete relaxation and the solitude of deep mountain lakes and tall piney woods. It's a very peaceful and rekindling environment."

"If you absolutely must have some outdoor activity, it is right out your back door. In McCurtain County, you can hike and/or bike miles of secluded trails, canoe serene Broken Bow Lake, watch Bald Eagles, play mountain golf, horseback ride, explore 8 different museums and, of course, fish Oklahoma's best trout stream.  Winter trout fishing on the Lower Mountain Fork River is some of the best in the country. And it is all less than a 3 ½ hour drive from the Dallas-Fort Worth area."

If seniors want 'alone time' midweek – Monday through Thursday – is the perfect time. Midweek is more convenient, less hectic and discounted. Lodging operators, especially most cabin owners, are looking to increase their rental revenue with midweek occupancy, so it makes for a perfect seniors midweek getaway to the beautiful Kiamichi Mountains of Southeaster, OK.  Each cabin owner is an individual entrepreneur, so tourist need to ask the cabin owner if they offer a midweek senior discount – BEFORE – they book.
