Weekend Stay at Pawhuska


We had such a fun little weekend getaway at Pawhuska, OK that I thought I would share a bit more about where we stayed and what we did while we were down there! It’s the perfect spot for my local friends who want a quick, inexpensive escape and is also such a fun space to see if you’re not familiar with OK too!

Did you guys know that I actually grew up in a TINY town in Oklahoma? Yes, even tinier than Pawhuska ;). So coming here felt a bit like coming home to my country roots, and I’m feeling all sorts of refreshed.



First, let’s talk a little more about this adorable cottage. It’s within walking distance to the Pioneer Woman’s Mercantile which was our favorite spot of the trip! It’s one bedroom (and one GORGEOUS bathroom) and is just perfect for a little lover’s getaway or a fun girl’s weekend! The farmhouse style is so cute too- I was getting all of the home decor inspo. I’ve already asked my mom, sister, and aunt to come back with me sometime soon!

The hosts were so super helpful and sweet and had great tips on some other things to do in Pawhuska that we never would have thought of on our own. They also have a stunning farmhouse that can sleep up to 10 people if you’re interested in an extended family getaway, bachelorette party, friend get together, etc.! You can see a little peek at the shared backyards below.


Now let’s talk a little about our itinerary (which if you’ve been around a while you know I use that term VERY loosely haha). Number one on our list was grabbing some grub at The Mercantile and doing a little shopping at all of Pioneer Woman’s cute cookware and home decor.



We didn’t get there until later in the afternoon so we were too hungry to wait in the 3hr line to eat at the actual restaurant (it’s recommended that you get there early in the morning to avoid lines), but we were more than happy to order off the To-Go menu which has lots of options that are also on the regular cafe menu! I had the pulled pork sandwich (sans bread bc Celiac), and it was BOMB.



My favorite spot at The Merc was actually the coffee bar upstairs! It’s super spacious (and less crowded than downstairs), very stylized, and has DELICIOUS brewed-in-house coffee + baked goods. Major bonus: They also had gluten free chocolate muffins that were super yummy!



That evening, we hit up her newest restaurant which is a wood-fired pizza grill called P-Town. They have a fun rooftop area + lots of unique cocktails so it’s a bit of a different vibe! There was also no wait here! There’s also a little ice cream/sweets shop right next to the pizza place. (And yes, if you’re wondering if this whole trip centered around food, the answer is absolutely.)

We also spent some time at the Osage Museum, toured the Tallgrass Prairie, and walked across the Swinging Bridge. My favorite part was just having some downtime with my hubs- watching movies, having hour-long conversations, and starting new books.

If you’re looking for a little getaway, you should definitely check this place out! I know you won’t regret it!
