Mountain Vista Horseshoes

Our new Beavers Bend horseshoe pit has already been a huge hit with guests! Recent Mountain Vista visitors said they spent tons of time throwing shoes last weekend.

The beautiful new custom pit was installed last week with “Mountain Vista”  ingrained on the box.

Solar lights have been installed in case the battle for ringers goes past dusk. The Mountain Vista horseshoe pit receives additional light from the second level of the cabin. Seats are situated around the pit to provide relaxation in case of a grueling match.

The history of horseshoes dates back to the second century. Here’s more than you’ve ever wanted to know about the sport!  You’ll be able to see the Kiamichi Mountains from the Mountain Vista horseshoe pit.

When choosing a luxury rental cabin in Beavers Bend State Park there are a few things to consider…

  • How close is the nearest cabin?
  • How close will the nearest live music be cranking at night?
  • Does the cabin charge resort fees?
  • Does the cabin charge cleaning fees?
  • Does the cabin charge insurance fees?

Do a little homework before visiting a Broken Bow luxury cabin and you’ll have a much better experience. Also pay attention the popular “firewood charge.” If $100 for a few sticks of wood sounds like a great deal to you, go for it!

We never charge these add-on fees at Mountain Vista. The firewood is free along with s’mores kits and a plethora of other upscale amenities.

Mountain Vista has a few days open next week, but hardly any weekends available until August.

Make sure to download our Beavers Bend app. All the local hot spots are on it along with our blog. We created the app with Mobile Roadie in Los Angeles. Mobile Roadie does many apps for rock stars, including Madonna and The Rolling Stones.

Thousands read our blog monthly. The tourists love it… cabin property management companies charging you ridiculous add-on fees hate it.

Enjoy the new Mountain Vista horseshoe pit and please remember to wager responsibly! Update

“Let It Ring Forever More…”

Ah…love this old tune from Electric Light Orchestra. It instantly came to mind after a call we received yesterday.

A nice lady had been calling numerous cabin companies searching for a quick getaway to Beavers Bend. She’d stumbled across our website among “many others.”  We were the first to call her back and others hadn’t for several days.

It’s difficult to return calls when you’re overseeing 30-80 luxury cabins. How’d you like to be the owner of an expensive property? You hire someone to market it and the company won’t simply “pick up that telephone.”

There are tons of wonderful companies to do business with in Beavers Bend State Park. But if they won’t return your call promptly…don’t let it bring you down!

Let it ring forever more

Call us at Mountain Vista luxury cabin near Broken Bow Lake. Unless we’re on an airplane, you’ll be surprised that we actually return calls and emails promptly.

Beavers Bend Cabin Rental Tips

A few Beavers Bend Cabin rental Tips as we head into the heavy tourist season…

Many times people only need a one-bedroom cabin when visiting Beavers Bend State Park. There are plusses and minuses to choosing a small cabin.

They’re cheaper. But usually smaller cabins in Broken Bow are located near many others. Tiny lots and scores of other tourists nearby may greet you upon arrival.

When researching luxury cabins in Beavers Bend, pay close attention to how the property is displayed online. Make sure you see a large portion of the cabin property so you’ll know the lay of the land before booking.

Some cabin companies are notorious for only showing a tight shot of the cabin online. When you arrive…it looks completely different. You’re often packed together like sardines. It’s a huge complaint many have when visiting Beavers Bend State Park.

I heard a funny story recently; two honeymooners booked a cabin and didn’t realize they were near a noisy bar with live music. They couldn’t sleep and stormed into the bar to complain.

They should’ve asked the cabin company why there was no mention of their rental being near loud outdoor music.

Our weekends are filling fast at Mountain Vista. Several 2017 holidays remain available, but not for long.

Mountain Vista sits on acres of seclusion in the upscale Southern Hills Addition. In the heart of the Kiamichi Mountains. There are lots of great cabins in the area, but few with a deck view like ours!

Cabin Highway Noise

DATE: 02/28/17 7:10 PM POSTED BY:

Cabin highway noise should be at the top of your list when researching luxury vacation properties in Beavers Bend State Park.

Scores of cabins continue to be built in Broken Bow and many are near noisy highways. You arrive and are excited about a few days in a cabin and surprise…Larry the log truck driver is doing 70mph within a few yards of your vacation retreat.

Cabin HIghway Noise

A few of the biggest disappointments visitors experience when arriving at their Broken Bow lodging choice are road noise and having another cabin nearby.

How can you really be sure your cabin will be secluded away from Larry’s loud tailpipe?


Mountain Vista luxury cabin sits on acres of seclusion…away from noisy highways and log trucks. Download our Beavers Bend app for VIP offers and a list of area attractions.

A few dates are available in early March at Mountain Vista. Contact us if we can help plan your Beavers Bend vacation.

Watch Out For Beavers Bend Add-On Fees

DATE: 02/16/17 5:26 PM POSTED BY:

You never have to pay Beavers Bend add-on fees for firewood, insurance, cleaning or hot tub usage at Mountain Vista cabin.

Our busy booking season has arrived. Oklahoma spring break is packed but we have a few openings for many Arkansas and Texas school districts.

President’s Day, February 20-22 is now available at Mountain Vista. This is always a popular date for those off work seeking a quick getaway.

Download our Beavers Bend app for a complete list of area activities.

The Broken Bow Lake Duck Tours will be open again in March. This highly popular tourist attraction offers great insight about Beavers Bend State Park. You’ll enjoy jaunting across the pristine water of Broken Bow Lake in this comfortable amphibious vessel.

Beavers Bend add-on fees

Sherri and I along with our very spoiled Grand Champion Brussels Griffon just returned from a week in Southern California. The weather was actually warmer in Oklahoma during the duration of our stay than at Newport Beach.

Mountain Vista features stunning 20-miles views and acres of seclusion in the upscale Southern Hills Addition near Beavers Bend State Park.  The cabin has been featured in Oklahoma’s centennial celebration book and lauded by TravelOK as “A Place To Stay In Oklahoma.”

Unlike many cabins in Broken Bow, you deal directly with us, the owners, rather than a large management company.

I’ve noticed a dramatic surge in rental property interest in the past couple of months. If you’re considering purchasing or building a cabin in Beavers Bend and need consultation, let me know.  I’ve written numerous articles you can find online about how to market luxury properties.

We’re considering adding and marketing cabins on our website, social media outlets and app. Ask yourself if you’d like your cabin marketed by a company already overseeing 30-70 other cabins.

How will you receive individualized media attention while competing with scores of cabins on a website?
