OKC-Tulsa To Beavers Bend Restaurant Tip

We’ve written about our friends at Spannman’s BBQ in Antlers for years. You must visit the award-winning BBQ champion chef when passing through Antlers on the way to Beavers Bend.

He’s located on the main drag through town just down the road from Sonic.

If you’re traveling from OKC or Tulsa to Broken Bow you’ll be amazed at this world-class cuisine.

Tell Spannman we sent you. He’s been a great friend to us and Mountain Vista cabin.

Beavers Bend Winter Cabin Special

Winter Beavers Bend Cabins

Mountain Vista’s Beavers Bend Winter Cabin Special has been announced today across various media platforms.

Enjoy 20% off at Mountain Vista luxury cabin December 4-18 and during January 2017!

Beavers Bend Winter Special

Other cabins in Broken Bow charge $100 or more for a couple of days supply of firewood…not us! It’s always free. You’ll never spend a penny around our fire pit for s’mores either.

Our famous s’mores kits are also on the house at Mountain Vista. These aren’t simply generic junk…Sherri’s s’mores kits are vacuum sealed and always include a few extras like gourmet tea and Starbucks!

Who else provides free Starbucks in Beavers Bend?

Get our app for Beavers Bend tourist information.

We hope you’ll take advantage of this special offer and enjoy one of Beavers Bend’s most spectacular views from our deck.

Beavers Bend’s Favorite Show Dog Wins

CH GCH Hilltop’s Time For Kula To Fly & Sherri Isbell

Beavers Bend’s most famous show dog finished this weekend’s AKC dog show in Chickasha, OK with two Best of Breed victories!

As many of you know, we’ve been in the dog show world for two decades. When we’re not hanging out in Beavers Bend, we’re probably at a dog show with “Kula,” our six-year old Brussels Griffon.

If you’re considering a new dog, AKC dog shows are a great place to learn about different breeds from the experts. That’s how we got started 20 years ago.

Many of our Mountain Vista fans are from DFW and I’d recommend attending the Lone Star Classic December 8-11 at the Dallas Market Mall. It’s a huge show with well over 1,000 dogs.

We currently have rare openings in mid-December at Mountain Vista and 2017 reservations are already occurring. It’s very important to make your 2017 holiday and spring break bookings soon.

Happy Thanksgiving from Jerry, Sherri and Kula!

Beavers Bend’s New Meat Market

Mountain Man Meat Market and Catering

You must visit Beavers Bend’s new meat market during your next trip to Broken Bow Lake.

I met the owners of Mountain Man Meat Market and Catering recently and was blown away by their kindness and quality meats.  I sampled their in-house smoked turkey and enjoyed a BBQ sandwich for lunch. They were fantastic!

The owners moved to Beavers Bend from Mississippi after hard times hit the oil industry. They feature daily lunch specials and everything you’ll need to enjoy an evening of grilling at Mountain Vista cabin.

Their ribs and pork chops were fantastic on the Mountain Vista grill and we look forward to seeing their business flourish. This isn’t your typical meat market…its gourmet and upscale cuisine.

Grilling ribs at Mountain Vista!

If you don’t feel like cooking yourself while staying in a Beavers Bend luxury cabin, take advantage of their catering service. Mountain Man Meat Market and Catering is located about a mile south of the Beavers Bend exit on Highway 259.

The oil bust has turned into a huge boom for Beavers Bend visitors. You’ll love their service and food!

Beavers Bend Firewood Fees

Beavers Bend Firewood Fees

Beavers Bend firewood fees are becoming a source of frustration to luxury cabin visitors.

We never charge guests a fee for firewood but most luxury cabins will gouge you with this add-on bill. Beware of the old “We provide you a starter supply of firewood” trick.

We’ve talked with guests that have stayed at numerous cabins in Beavers Bend and the “starter supply” was only a few sticks. Unless you’re trained in the outdoors like Daniel Boone, it won’t be enough wood for an enjoyable fire.

Beavers Bend Firewood Fees

The per piece price of wood for an additional supply is usually outrageous from cabin management companies. You may want to consider bringing your own or purchasing wood from an area store.

Firewood is very inexpensive for us to purchase in Beavers Bend. It’s also plentiful in our area. We see no need to slam our guests’ pocketbooks with this needless charge.

Another bogus bill you may incur while staying in Beavers Bend is a “hot tub fee.” This is a relatively new add-on fee that has emerged in the luxury cabin market.

Our staff cleans and sanitizes the hot tub at Mountain Vista between after every guest departs. Unlike many, we see no reason to charge a greedy hot tub fee.

There are many other add-on bills to consider before agreeing to stay in a Broken Bow Lake area luxury cabin: Insurance, cleaning, resort and incidental fees have become popular charges in Beavers Bend State Park.

Don’t pay them…

We never charge add-fees at Mountain Vista. Make sure to do your homework and choose a luxury cabin that’s right for your group.

There are many reputable cabin companies in the area and others that pop your pocketbook with these needles charges.

We only have two available fall foliage season dates available. November 6-9 and 13-17.  The peak foliage will be amazing as always in the next few weeks. Contact us at Mountain Vista to reserve your stay.

Remember, you’ll have no Beavers Bend firewood fees with us!
