Art will be a key ingredient when The Canebrake 2022 hotel and spa fully reopens after closing six years ago.
The Canebrake features new ownership and touches of art throughout the 16-room hotel, including the main building and signs directing people to its remote location at 33241 E. 732nd Road in Wagoner. A first-time visitor should follow the art signs to reach the out-of-the-way location.
Resort, co-owned by Doug Jackson, will include spa rooms, bar, indoor and outdoor restaurant seating, game/event room, gift shop, exercise facility, yoga studio, swimming pool (coming soon) and golf simulators (coming soon). There is also a small music room for concerts, weddings or company parties.
“We had our soft open on August 3,” said Jackson, who lives in Muskogee but has deep family roots in Wagoner history. Early reviews say the soft opening was a hit.

The hotel can accommodate 40 people and is located a few steps from the main building. It is located in the middle of a small grove of trees.
The rooms have showers, Jacuzzi-style tubs, and a refrigerator near the entry area. With so much to capture the imagination, what is the most interesting feature of this 300-acre resort?
“The topography of the property itself,” Jackson said.
Jackson is right. Just walking through a canopy of trees at one point to dodge a deer crossing the small two-lane road are some of the sights to see.
The Canebrake will also be more than just a landscape.
“We’ll be doing a lot of events,” Jackson added. “The first will be an adult Halloween party. Then our Veterans Day celebration will be a really big event.
As a retired military veteran, Jackson will spare nothing for veterans, he added.
The artists will be honored daily. Creative work is displayed throughout the main building and most of it is also for sale.
Despite being located about six miles outside of downtown Wagoner, Jackson doesn’t want to lose that connection.
We want to be a big part of Wagoner,” Jackson added.
With 300 acres, there is still growth potential for the Canebrake. One thing the management won’t have to develop is a location that provides a stress-free disconnect from everyday life. You can’t hear the traffic, but you can see a sky full of stars at night without the blinding city lights.
