Cabin management in Beavers Bend plays a vital role in the Broken Bow, OK tourism industry.
If you’re considering buying or building a luxury cabin, do your homework before choosing a company to manage your property. There are many things to consider before inking a deal with someone that will take 30-50 percent of your rental rates.
Make sure to assess how many properties the company manages. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to determine that you won’t get much individual attention being one of 40 cabins on a website.
Ask yourself, how are they going to rent my cabin with all the competition on their website?
Scrutinize the fees charged to you and renters by the Beavers Bend cabin management company. New fees pop up frequently and many have gotten creative with the fee names. Renters and owners hate add-on fees!
There are resort fees, restocking fees, cleaning fees, firewood fees, insurance fees, incidental fees and property protection fees...You get the picture, its crazy. I follow this stuff closely and its tough for me to keep up with the latest guest gouging techniques.
Many companies are also charging advertising fees to owners. There’s no need to put up with these unnecessary charges. A cabin owner recently told us they’re being charged to have cabin pictures uploaded to a cabin management company’s website.
The media and marketing background of your Beavers Bend cabin management company should be the determining factor in hiring them. Checkout their online presence and ability to draw attention to your luxury cabin. How will they be able to differentiate your cabin from scores of others on their website?
Simply owning a cabin and hoping people will visit doesn’t guarantee success in the Broken Bow luxury cabin business. Your cabin must have something unique. For us, it’s the amazing views at Mountain Vista. We’re also not penny pinchers regarding luxury amenities and are fortunate to have developed a loyal following through the years.
Many cabins fail because owners refuse to spend money on upscale amenities. Don’t expect a guest to return to your cabin if they’re paying $400/night and you’re giving them generic paper towels and hand soap. If your bath towels and linens were purchased at the Dollar General Store, your cabin is destined for failure in the luxury segment.
It’s expensive to correctly own, operate and manage a luxury property in Beavers Bend. Make sure you have the necessary funds in place for last minute emergencies.
