After a six-year closure, the resort town of Canebrake near Wagoner officially reopened on Wednesday August 3.

The resort began hosting yoga classes earlier this summer and now offers spa treatments including deep tissue and reflexology massages, as well as steam treatments that help with stress relief and detoxification.

The Canebrake also has a 16-room hotel for guests who want to spend a full day of their time at the resort. Room prices range from $169 to $269 per night for one person; additional guests are an additional $25 per person.

The opening menu included appetizers such as Baja shrimp tacos, chicken “pops” with mango-jalapeño dip, and brisket nachos; Caesar salads, wedges and blueberries-peaches; and entrees that included four steaks, including the fried chicken version; salmon, halibut, chicken and pork dishes; and a burger made from 100% Wagyu beef.

All main courses are accompanied by a soup or salad of the day and two side dishes. These choices are baked, mashed or fried potatoes, green beans, mixed sautéed vegetables or sweet corn puff.

A stir-fry is the only vegetarian option. Dessert choices are key lime pie, creme brulee, strawberry shortcake, and decadent chocolate cake with ice cream.

At present, the Canebrake Restaurant serves dinner only.

The Canebrake opened in 2007, on land that had belonged to owners Sam and Lisa Bracken’s family for years; before being turned into a wellness resort, the area was known as Neosho River Ranch.

Sam Bracken was the Canebrake’s head chef, crafting menus of mostly locally sourced protein and produce, while his wife Lisa oversaw the resort’s yoga and spa facilities.

In January 2016, the Brackens announced that they had been forced to close the Canebrake when a funding deal fell through.

Earlier this year, new owners Doug Jackson and Web Brown announced the resort would reopen in the summer of 2022.

In an email to Tulsa World at the time of the announcement, Jackson said the facility has been kept in great condition, with only minor changes needed to bring in aspects of contemporary building and safety codes.

“‘Don’t fix it if it ain’t broke’ couldn’t apply more in this case,” Jackson said. “We just have to be careful not to break anything when expanding equipment. Sam and Lisa have been extremely helpful and remain an invaluable resource for us and we hope to involve them as much as they wish.

Reservations are required for all services offered, including dinner. Currently, reservations are made by phone only. 918-400-1120,
