It's true! There are now 6 zebra living just outside Antlers in Pushmataha County, Oklahoma!

Becky Franks, owners/operators of Rebel Hill Guest Ranch, has proudly added zebra to the list of many things guests can enjoy while visiting her Guest Ranch located just outside Antlers on Ethel Road. That’s right, six of these wonderful creatures graze alongside a shimmering pond just miles from downtown Antlers.

Rebel Hill is a 3rd generation working horse ranch that is home to over 100 horses. The Ranch offers guests quiet, relaxed evenings in cozy, rustic cabins but unlike "dude ranches", Rebel Hill lets you set your own schedule so you can do as little, or as much, as you please.

Along with a 15 acres, a lake and six ponds; they also have a swimming pool on the property. But if it is fishing or paddle-boating you're in the mood for, then you will just love the beautifully landscaped and well stocked 15-acre private lake.

Guests have said that it is so relaxing to go hiking and watch all of the wildlife. You can watch the beavers build their dam on the lake while all of the ducks and geese swim about. There are squirrels and raccoons running around also, and you might even hear a coyote or two. They have also planted 80 acres of wheat for the deer to feed on.

If you are planning a family event, they have a lake front pavilion that is available for weddings, reunions or just a family get together. They also have a covered wagon for the kids to camp in or for an Old West family wagon ride!

All of their cabins are on the waterfront of a private lake, have waterfront decks, grills, picnic tables, fire rings and fire wood. The Inside of the cabins have full kitchens, Direct Satellite TV, linens, central heat and air, and fabulous decor. There are a total of 7 sleeping facilities available, including a 1911 80 ft passenger train that can sleep 6!

Many activities can be enjoyed while at the Ranch, something for everyone to enjoy. Take a relaxing horse back ride with your family, enjoy quiet fishing on a well maintained lake, or for the active outdoors men canoeing, hiking and swimming are available. They also have a playground to keep the kids entertained between activities.
