Oklahoma Spring Break

 

3

Oklahoma Spring Break is quickly approaching. We’re booked during the Texas Spring Break week but still have availability for Oklahoma’s  during March 16-23. Make sure you have an Oklahoma fishing license and are aware of the proper places to ride ATV’s in the area. The fines are hefty, so make sure you know the proper protocol before visiting Beavers Bend.

Spend a few minutes and scroll our blog here…We’ve written about numerous topics and educated Oklahoma luxury cabin renters regarding things to consider before booking a getaway. If a feature isn’t on a website, consider it unavailable. Many times if a picture or amenity is on a website, it’s also not there!

For example, there’s another luxury cabin company in Beavers Bend using our 20-mile cabin view on their website for marketing purposes. They don’t have a view like ours! Do your homework. Broken Bow Lake cabins are expensive to own and operate, if done properly. Watch for cost cutting measures such as generic products and condiments in the cabin. Who wants to pay over $300/night for a cabin and use sandpaper for paper towels? Make sure you have a trusted company  to deal with and better yet, if you’re able talk directly with the owners, that’s ideal…Most owners will truly care.

Many times, a young cabin company employee taking your call won’t have their 30-50 cabin property details memorized and you can’t always depend on a website for truth and accuracy. Ask a few questions: “Do you have a great view?” “What’s your definition of seclusion?” “How close will we be to other cabins?” “How many acres is the property?” “Do I have to pay extra for firewood?” “Do you have add-on charges for bogus things like insurance and extra cleaning fees?”

We had a friendly couple reserve by phone a few days ago and were pleasantly surprised they were able to speak directly with Sherri and me, the owners. Unlike others who have 30-50 cabins and employ teenagers to take your calls, we have a vested interest in our visitors having an outstanding guest experience.

We own it! And the view!

Beavers Bend Cabins Spring Break Update

CabinSpringFlowers

Oklahoma Spring Break Update: We currently have several dates open. It won’t be long until the colors on our property at Mountain Vista cabin become vibrant!

Texas Spring Break Update: Very few days remain available. Check our calendar and book online or give us a call if you have any questions about the area, where to eat, what to do etc. Our phones are always available.

Book your stay at Mountain Vista soon. We really begin getting busy with lots of reservations during February. The phones and email begin blowing up once March arrives. Plan early so you’ll have a secluded cabin rather than something that’s not top of the line.

Restaurant Recommendation: We had a recent guest rave about Papa Poblano’s Mexican restaurant in Broken Bow. They planned a three-night stay but enjoyed our view so much, they added an extra night once they arrived to our property. You may want to check Papa’s out when visiting our area. I’m not a huge Mexican food fan, but have eaten there several times and the service and food have been fantastic. It’s very popular with the locals and tourists. When Sherri and I entertain guests at Mountain Vista, we often get takeout at Papa’s and take it back to the cabin.

Choctaw Casino in Broken Bow: Many of our Texas guests visit the casino when staying at our cabin. There’s no slots in the Lone Star State and if you’re feeling lucky, check them out! They usually have live music on weekends and my experience with all their facilities across the state is they’re first-class, very clean and they always go beyond the call of duty to offer a tremendous guest experience.

Contact us at info@beaversbendvacations.com or 405-535-8055 if we can help you with your next trip to McCurtain County. If you’ve never been here before, you don’t know what you’re missing! Remember to compare cabins, locations, proximity to other cabins and most importantly, the view. Sherri and I invite you to visit Mountain Vista soon!

Cabins in Beavers Bend…Exploring Mountain Fork River

photophoto

Are you planning a Beavers Bend getaway to Mountain Vista cabin in the next few weeks and wondering what to do in the dead of winter? Exploring Mountain Fork River is one of our guests favorite pastimes.

The area behind Beavers Bend Restaurant in the state park offers a tremendous array of photo-ops and if you’re willing to hike a little, taking shots like these are a great way to spend the day near Broken Bow Lake area cabins.

Fly fishing the Mountain Fork River and taking in the sights and sounds of wildlife and the flowing stream is definitely something to consider doing when visiting the Hochatown cabin area. There are scores of fishing guides available and professionals who can offer expert advice regarding where and how to land a big stringer of trout. Get our app for local tourist info.
