Broken Bow Fall Foliage

Fall is Here!

Mountain Vista’s View!

The Broken Bow Fall foliage season is only a few weeks away. This sunrise shot was taken from the deck of Mountain Vista November 10th a couple of years ago.

October and November are huge tourist months in Beavers Bend, especially weekends. Our Thursday-Saturday dates are full at Mountain Vista until December. A few weekdays remain available during foliage season.

Our fire pit at Mountain Vista is a favorite spot for guests to gather while enjoying a glass of wine in the evening. We always provide free firewood.

The Broken Bow fall foliage season is the top tourist attraction in Oklahoma during October and November. For a list of all the hot spots, download our Beavers Bend app.

The famous Talimena Drive is our top activity recommendation when visiting Broken Bow during foliage season. The winding roads and breathtaking scenery prove the ultimate fall foliage experience in Southeastern Oklahoma.

Thousands visit Broken Bow, OK for the annual Beavers Bend Folk Festival. This year’s dates are November 11-13.

Our free s’mores kits are a guest favorite year-round, but even more so during the fall. Others charge more than $40 for generic versions of ours in Beavers Bend. We don’t do generic junk at Mountain Vista!

When researching luxury cabins in Beavers Bend, remember to look for photos of the property perimeter. Scores of cabins are being built and they’re becoming closer together. You’ll be in for a big surprise when you arrive if you don’t do your homework.

There are over 1,000 luxury cabins in the Beavers Bend State Park region. Most have resort fees and add-on charges for insurance, cleaning and firewood. We never have these fees at Mountain Vista.

Mountain Vista features acres of seclusion and unmatched sunset views of the Kiamichi Mountains. Contact us to reserve your stay at the cabin lauded as “A Place to Stay in Oklahoma” by TravelOK!

Choosing A Broken Bow Cabin Management Company

 “I need help choosing a Broken Bow cabin management company.” I get this question asked often via our app and website.

I always delve into their goals. Do they want to be an elite player or just rent their Beavers Bend luxury cabin occasionally?

If you want to play in the cabin big leagues and develop a brand, it’s foolish to hire a company that’s marketing 30-70 other cabins. You’ll be lost in the shuffle.

It’s easy to figure out if a Beavers Bend management company will be a good fit. Analyze their marketing and ask yourself a few questions…

  1. Do they have cutting-edge technology? Professional videos, apps and a highly read blog?
  2. Are they social media experts or simply occasional posters? See my funny story from earlier this year.
  3. Are they always adding/deleting cabins on their website?
  4. How are their references?
  5. What is their fee structure? Do they charge owners for advertising and stays in their cabin? 
  6. Do they add a surcharge fee to owners for routine maintenance. (Tip: If you have propane delivered or maintenance done, make sure you see an invoice from the vendor, not the management company.)

A few cabin owners rely on themselves to publicize their cabin in Beavers Bend.

Developing a cabin brand and not simply being a number is difficult without having extensive marketing and media experience. How will you separate yourself?

Your cabin must have something unique to offer near Broken Bow Lake. Cabins with seclusion and great views are becoming increasingly scarce.

Management companies gouging tourists with add-on and resort fees is becoming more prevalent.

The most important thing isn’t simply having a cabin…people must be able to find it via blogs, videos, apps and social media.

Contact us if you would like to be a part of our website and other media outlets. Thousands have the Beavers Bend app we created.

Our media background enables us to offer professional video at no cost to you with our marketing program.

Are you tired of being a cabin owner lost in the shuffle?

We only have one weekend opening until December (November 10-13). That will be the perfect time to visit Broken Bow Lake. The foliage in Beavers Bend State Park should be near peak.

When researching luxury vacation cabins in our area, do your homework. Add-on fees continue to pop up among cabin management companies in Broken Bow.

Ask a few questions before forking over your credit card for a Beavers Bend getaway.

  1. Why am I being charged a resort fee?

  3. Why the insurance fee charge?
  4. Seriously, you’re charging me $40 for a generic s’mores kit?
  5. A charge for firewood…are you crazy?

Beavers Bend Deal Alert

We decided years ago to never get into the “add-on-fee” business with our guests. These are unnecessary charges and often tack on 20% to the nightly rate.

Remember the Mountain Vista difference…we always feature free firewood and s’mores kits. No generic junk at our vacation home! You’ll never pay resort, insurance, incidental or hot tub fees when reserving our luxury cabin!

A few dates remain open for fall foliage season in Beavers Bend. Contact us at 405-535-8055 or reserve online.

Our app fans always get the inside scoop first when we announce VIP offers.  Download the Beavers Bend app we created that is enjoyed by thousands.

I see lots of companies posting pictures of nice looking cabins but not indicating a surprise you’ll discover a few feet away…another cabin. Do your homework and demand perimeter pictures of any property before reserving a cabin in Beavers Bend.

We’re only five miles from Broken Bow Lake and a couple of minutes drive to Mountain Fork River.

Remember, there are rental cabins owned by companies with 30-60 other properties and vacation homes in Beavers Bend State Park. Mountain Vista is our vacation home and you’ll see the difference upon arrival!
