Wild goose chase ends up finding route for next bike trip

Emilys Tea Foom

Went on a wild goose chase today, as I had been told about the Tahlonteeskee Courthouse in Gore which I had never heard of, thought I knew just about every site in Oklahoma. So googled it and found some information from Cherokee Tourism that said it was open and gave hours, another site I found stated it was closed in April 2010. The pictures looked like it might work for a group so off we went to see if it was worthy. We found it no problem. Unfortunately, it was closed, and looked like it had not had any maintenance in a while.

The day was not a total wash as we enjoyed the drive and I was reminded of a great stop for ladies, Emily’s Tea Room and the Garden Gate Shop. Leaving Gore we decided to take 10 A to Fin & Feather, it was closed for the season, bummer. From here we took 100 north around the east edge of Lake Tenkiller and stopped at Cookson Smokehouse for lunch. This was an excellent choice, the building inside and out looks like a log cabin and has a very rustic atmosphere. Antiques and wildlife mounts on the walls. The food was good and could accommodate a group, also is biker friendly. Continued north on Hwy 100/82  to Keys and at South Indian Road then headed south around the west edge of the lake. This would make a perfect bike trip and at the intersection of Hwy 82  and Indian Road is Tenkiller Lodge which looked like some nice accommodations, and will my choice when going back on the bikes. I’m looking forward to returning with the bikes and taking the route around the lake as it  has some nice curves, actually I may have had a little too much fun taking them in the guppy. Oh well, what can I say, a girl has to have fun.
