Resort Fees In Broken Bow

Resort Fees In Broken Bow

People actually charge hundreds of add-on fees for this in Beavers Bend…it’s just firewood.

I’ve written about these guest-gouging fees for years and its great to see other nationally read websites pick up on it. Never pay resort fees when staying at a luxury property.

A new Twitter follower of ours is @KillResortFees. We love the name! Many websites have picked up on our mantra and are preaching the gospel of not gouging guests.

We were the first to expose these fraudulent fees in Beavers Bend several years ago. These charges are prevalent at some global resorts, but not all. There’s right and wrong. We feel resort fees are wrong. Hopefully after reading our blog all these years, you do too.

Never pay anything other than the nightly cabin rate and taxes. Don’t fall for the firewood, insurance, cleaning, hot tub or resort fee scams.

A couple of new wineries and a brewery have opened near Broken Bow Lake, we’ll have features on them soon. Weekends are becoming packed at Mountain Vista. Check-in Sunday’s through April and your fourth-night is free!

The redbuds are blooming in Beavers Bend and April/May is amazing in our area.

It’s Spring in the Kiamichi Mountains…we love it!

Our calendar is quickly filling for 2016 and only a couple of weekends are available until July. Make sure to download our free Beavers Bend app for the latest news from Broken Bow Lake. Our app features all the links to local hot spots, plus our recommendations regarding where you can eat, drink and be merry during your stay.

Mountain Vista luxury cabin is unique among cabins in Broken Bow. It features all king beds and two upstairs private decks. One deck features the beautiful 20-mile view…the other boasts acres of secluded forest. The deck on the forest side is a guest favorite during the hot summer months. It offers ample shade and is great for reading or catching up on work with our free Wi-Fi. (That’s right, we don’t charge you for Internet access either.)

Dining in Beavers Bend

Dining in Beavers Bend

Our favorite spot for dining in Beavers Bend is Moon Tower Bar and Grill, led by Food Network champion chef, Tabb Singleton.

I enjoyed this fantastic soft shell crawfish special last week. Chef Tabb’s mixture of sauces in the dish gave it a magnificent flavor. It was truly one of the best meals I’ve ever had.

I joked with Chef Tabb that he could retire now, there’s no way he can cook anything better than this!

Make sure to visit Moon Tower Bar and Grill during your next trip to Beavers Bend.

Beavers Bend Spring Break Activities

There are many fantastic Beavers Bend Spring Break activities to enjoy during the next few weeks.

Thousands will flock to luxury cabins and campgrounds in Broken Bow, OK in search of relaxation, great hiking, fishing and golf. Make sure to download our free Beavers Bend app before arriving.

Beavers Bend Spring Break Activities

Mountain Vista Luxury Cabin

A perfect day in Beavers Bend begins with a great cup of coffee and breakfast. Stop by Adam & Eve’s Coffee Shop across from the state park entrance. They have the best cup of joe in Broken Bow. I’ve written about this great place a few times and our Mountain Vista cabin guests always give it good reviews.

After breakfast, its time to burn a few calories and take a hike. There are scores of trails in the area, including the famed David Boren Hiking Trail. Your trail journey will be much safer and more pleasurable with a good pair of hiking boots. I wear Vasque and you can find them at most upper-end outdoor stores. Their soles are perfect for the different terrains in Beavers Bend and they perform great in wet conditions.

Bring your clubs and visit Cedar Creek Golf Course. This inexpensive gem features towering pines and beautiful views, including a stunning lake green.

Broken Bow Lake Duck Tours

Broken Bow Lake Duck Tours

No spring break trip to Beavers Bend is complete without “Riding the Duck!” The Broken Bow Lake Duck Tour is tremendous! This unique concept was unveiled last year and became a huge hit. Captain Kelly Persinger provides an informative and entertaining tour including a historical background of the Hochatown area.

Contact Bryce Archey, the premiere fishing guide on Broken Bow Lake. He has a few dates available during spring break. Bryce tells me white bass will be his focus in the near future. They will be running up river channels during the next couple of weeks. Bryce will even fillet your stringer after a day on the lake.

Spring Break Activities in Beavers Bend

After an evening meal at the Food Network Champion chef’s Moon Tower Bar and Grill, don’t forget to spend time around the cabin fire pit. Many luxury cabin guests have never built a fire before arriving in Beavers Bend. Do a little research and you’ll have a nice blaze going in no time.

Our spring break dates are booked at Mountain Vista, but we have several March and April dates available. Enjoy your Beavers Bend spring break activities and contact us at Mountain Vista. We’ll be happy to help plan you next luxury cabin getaway!
