Beavers Bend Tourism Booming

Broken Bow, OK cabins are in high demand according to a report from Vacation Rental By Owner (VRBO).

VRBO’s Travel Trend Report projects the Beavers Bend State Park/Broken Bow Lake tourism growth will increase 50% in 2020.

Short-Stay Vacation Destinations

More Americans are taking short-stay vacations of two or three days — likely an outgrowth of flexible time-off policies and prioritization of experiences with people over material goods. You don’t need to fly to your next destination — hop in the car for one of America’s favorite pastimes, the road trip, to the top five short-stay destinations. In fact, these places are all less than 300 miles away from the top origin markets that guests were traveling from.

Average demand growth:

According to VRBO’s report, “71% of millennial travelers say they’d consider staying at a non-traditional vacation rental. While beach houses, cabins and condos still reign supreme, travel demand for unusual accommodations is on the rise. Joining barns, castles and treehouses, travel demand for properties on wheels and properties that float is up 30% year over year on Vrbo, including houseboats, yachts, RVs and Airstreams.” 

I’ve written extensively about the cabin boom in Beavers Bend State Park.

Beavers Bend realtor, Kelli Haus, indicates there’s strong interest in purchasing cabins in 2020.

“Things typically slow down a bit in January, but not this year. I have had almost as much interest in purchasing an investment cabin from families and investors as I experience in the summer.As a Realtor and luxury cabin investor, I am often asked what type of cabin is the “best income producing cabin?”

There isn’t one answer to that question. One bedroom cabins are booked more days per year at a lower nightly rate, but cabins that sleep large groups have higher rates, fewer nights per year booked, but make more net profit. If managed properly, a cabin investment can be paid off in eight to 10 years. After a showing cabins to my clients, I ask two questions; “If you were a guest coming to Broken Bow, which cabin would you be the most impressed with when walking in the door?” The most impressive cabins, large or small, have the capability of making the most profit. I also ask, “Which of the cabins we saw today would you like paid off in eight to 10 years?  Everything I showed you today can be.”

Beavers Bend Cabin Marketing

If you purchase a cabin in Beavers Bend, how will you market it? Simply listing it on a rental site won’t work. We can add your cabin to our website and Beavers Bend app.

Best Way To Rent Beavers Bend Luxury Cabins

blank

There are many websites available for you to rent a Beavers Bend cabin. You can book from management companies, individual owners and sites like VRBO, Airbnb and Evolve.

Which is the best and most cost effective?

Many Beavers Bend cabin management companies are now advertising on VRBO. There were about 10 cabins on VRBO when we we began advertising there. Now it’s about 1,000.

It’s called vacation rental by owner…not vacation rental by management company. Management companies are flocking to the owners’ sites now.

The most cost effective way to rent a cabin in Broken Bow is from a website that doesn’t charge add-on fees. All third-party sites charge extra fees.

We never gouge guests with these charges at BeaversBendVacations.com.

Top Beavers Bend Cabin Rental Tips

  • If booking on Evolve, you’re dealing with people in Colorado. They don’t have a clue about the lay of the land in Beavers Bend.
  • VRBO, Airbnb and others charge additional fees. It’s often better to rent directly from an owner’s website. 
  • Many cabin management companies charge additional fees and don’t provide free firewood. Some only supply “Starter Kits” for things like trash bags. Look for these tactics. 
  • Third-party websites can provide ease of mind if you’re not familiar with a cabin, owner or management company. Helpful if you rely on reviews.
  • Research the proximity of your cabin to another and if there’s lots of highway noise
