Tips on Buying A Cabin In Beavers Bend

Tips on Buying a cabin in Beavers Bend

Do you love Broken Bow and need tips on buying a cabin in Beavers Bend? Here are a few things we’ve learned through the years.

The tourism industry in Beavers Bend State Park is booming and many people have bought into the lucrative action by purchasing luxury cabins in the Kiamichi Mountains. If you’re considering building or buying a current cabin pay attention to the following details…

Building Vs. Buying an existing cabin: If you want to rent your vacation home and are considering building there are pluses and minuses. You can build exactly what you want but the downside is you will lose approximately a year of rentals due to the long construction time.  Luxury cabin construction in Broken Bow is often a slow, tedious process.

Building while living out of town: It can be a nightmare depending on how far away you live from Beavers Bend State Park. The year we build Mountain Vista resulted in about 30 round-trip jaunts to Broken Bow to checkout the progress. Being able to find a builder you can trust is paramount to easing the stress. They’re very difficult to find!

Why is this cabin for sale? There’s usually a good reason a luxury rental cabin is for sale…It hasn’t been renting well! To be a successful in the Broken Bow luxury cabin business your cabin needs to have a unique story. For us, it’s our magnificent views, upscale amenities and seclusion. We’re simply not “just another cabin.” Our aggressive marketing and media experience have helped Mountain Vista become one of the most popular luxury cabins in Oklahoma. We had the cabin rented for many days long before construction was completed.

Who will market the cabin? Do you have the experience to do it yourself? The competition is steep to be successful and it takes much more than a homemade website. Many first-time luxury cabin owners make the mistake of trusting a Beavers Bend cabin management company who already has 20-50 properties available. How will you receive personalized marketing and media attention when you’re competing against this many other cabins on the same website? Will your three-bedroom cabin be recommended by the cabin management company in Broken Bow or the other 15 they have available?  

Who to trust for maintenance and repairs? If you live outside of Broken Bow or don’t have local connections you can get taken to the cleaners when trying to have maintenance and repairs on your property. A long learning curve is usually required for new luxury cabin owners in Beavers Bend State Park.
