Don’t plan your trip to the Pioneer Woman Mercantile and Lodge until you read this guide!
For this Mother’s Day, my mom, two sisters and I took a road trip to Pawhuska, OK to tour the Pioneer Woman’s Mercantile, Lodge and other shops. We had such a great time, but we missed out on a lot because we didn’t do enough research and plan our trip out.
Closed on Sunday
Everything in Pawhuska, OK is pretty much closed on Sundays, so plan accordingly. The Mercantile and all the shops are closed, but there are lots of other things to do depending on the weather. You can shop in Tulsa, OK, there is a mall and movie theater. There are trails to hike, etc. But a better plan would be to come during the week or on a friday/saturday and make your travel day Sunday.
Pioneer Woman Filming Lodge Tour Dates
If you really want to tour the Lodge, then be sure to plan your trip for when the Lodge is open for tours. There are several dates throughout the month when it’s open, but they only have them posted for the next month or two, depending on their shooting schedule.
Check this website for the most updated LODGE TOUR DATES.
Where to stay in Pawhuska, OK
Of course, if possible, it would be awesome to be able to stay at Ree’s Drummonds hotel, but we didn’t book ahead of time. There was also a movie being shot there while we were there, so I think alot of places were booked up.
There are several really cute little cottages right down the street from the Mercantile called the Prairie Cottages. My sister really wanted to stay in both of them for our girls trip, but we veto’d her to get an incredible old restored house.
