Furnishing Your Beavers Bend Cabin

Glen’s Furniture-Broken Bow, OK

Glen’s Furniture in Broken Bow, OK is your one-stop-shop when furnishing a cabin in Beavers Bend State Park.

Think you can get better furniture deals in OKC or DFW? No way! Their low overhead allows them to pass along savings to customers. This legendary furniture store has been serving the ArkLaTex since 1949.

My family has enjoyed doing business at Glen’s since the 1950’s. Unfortunately the legend, Glen Haley, passed away a few years ago, well into his 90’s. Glen was a dear friend of my family for decades.

He always had a huge smile and joke ready for every customer that walked through the door. Glen’s Furniture has kept the business in the family. Daughter and son-in-law, Bobby Blanque, are continuing his legacy of great integrity.

“We are a high volume/low margin operation with 28,000 square feet of display along with additional 28,000 square foot of warehouse storage. We have a huge selection to choose from and our inventory changes often. We carry most major furniture brands and sell them on average at 1/3 less than our competition. We are here if you need us and are third-generation owners. Our fourth generation is beginning to learn the business and we plan to be here for years to come.”

-Bobby Blanque, Glen’s Furniture Owner

Sherri and I furnished Mountain Vista cabin from Glen’s and recently added a few new items. As always, the staff was professional, knowledgeable and kind.

You won’t be hounded and surrounded by scores of sales staff. Glen’s Furniture has a relaxed atmosphere and a selection to fit every price range.

Resort Fees Getting Rocked

I’ve done media about luxury vacation rental resort fee scams for years. My feedback has been 99.9% positive…except for those charging you these ridiculous insurance, cleaning, hot tub and incidental fees.

Scores are beginning to take note of the rip-offs, including NBC News.

Resort fees made their way from hotels to luxury vacation rentals a few years ago. These wallet wasters are prevalent in Beavers Bend. We never gouge guests with these charges at Mountain Vista.

Clouds Rolling In At Mountain Vista

The skies are turning grey for many charging resort fees to consumers. The public has become aware and are fighting back. @KillResortFees is a great follow on Twitter. They’ve been at the forefront of educating travelers for years.

Beavers Bend Fall Foliage Update

We’ve noticed a little change in the leaves on our Mountain Vista property, but nothing dramatic yet. Cooler temperatures over the next few weeks will result in beautiful foliage.

Weekdays are available at Mountain Vista in October and November. Remember to find out how close your cabin will be to other renters. Ask if you’ll be near a noisy bar or highway before booking a luxury Beavers Bend getaway.

The fall foliage season is one of the most popular times of the year in Beavers Bend. Here are a few tips to make your trip to Broken Bow more enjoyable.

  • Book your luxury cabin immediately. The good ones are filling fast.

Mountain Vista has a 50 mile views from the deck!

If traveling to Beavers Bend from the Oklahoma City area during October to mid-November, I recommend taking I-40 to Sallisaw. Jaunt down 250 South and enjoy the fall foliage. You’ll see picturesque views and experience many winding roads.

There are a few weekdays available in October and November at Mountain Vista.

Beavers Bend Fall Foliage Season Tips

We do things very differently at Mountain Vista cabin. There are never charges for firewood and s’mores kits. Our fire pit is very popular with guests during the fall and winter months. Others charge $100 for a few logs and do not issue refunds for unused firewood.

Mountain Vista features acres of seclusion in the upscale Southern Hills Addition. We’re minutes away from Mountain Fork River and Broken Bow Lake.

Download our free Beavers Bend app. It features VIP offers to Mountain Vista and other area promotions.

Beavers Bend boasts crisp mornings and chilly nights during October and November. Afternoons are usually filled with sun-kissed days and a kaleidoscope of tree colors.
