DFW’s Eagle Gun Range Visits Mountain Vista

DFW's Eagle Gun Range Visits Mountain Vista

DFW’s premier gun range visited Mountain Vista luxury cabin in Broken Bow, OK and tell us we hit the bullseye with our location and amenities.

“We’ve stayed in many cabins in Broken Bow over the years. This one ranks at the top,…beautiful views, comfy beds/linens, completely stocked kitchen and a BBQ grill that works great,” Eagle Gun Range owner Nanci Prince said.

I’m so impressed with Eagle Gun Range, I recently became a customer and greatly enjoyed the experience. Communication with their staff was terrific and they went beyond the call of duty to get the exact firearm I wanted.

Eagle Gun Range is located in Lewisville and they’re opening a new facility in Farmers Branch soon. Their state-of-the-art facility features:

  • 24 indoor lanes

“We truly overpacked because everything we needed was already there, including two coffee makers! We loved the hiking trails, fire pit and outdoor seating. The kids loved Netflix and the s’mores. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home…would love to return in the fall or sooner,” Nanci said.

Many of our Beavers Bend guests are from the DFW metroplex and we hope you’ll visit Nanci and her staff at Eagle Gun Range soon. I highly recommend them and can vouch for their first-class service. Sherri and I are thrilled they enjoyed their experience in Beavers Bend.

Beavers Bend’s Grand Champion Show Dog

We’ve been in the dog show world over 20 years and love it. American Kennel Club (AKC) Dog shows are a great place to learn about different breeds. That’s how we broke into this crazy game.

Sherri and I attended a dog show and were hooked. We’ve been blessed with world-class show dogs for decades. Kula is named after a little town in Upcounty Maui where we were married many years ago.

Beavers Bend's Grand Champion Show Dog

Beavers Bend’s Grand Champion show dog will be competing again at the end of June in Oklahoma City. He’s had a stellar career and keeps on rolling!

Summer Beavers Bend Cabins

Summer Beavers Bend Cabins

 The great Summer Beavers Bend cabins are in high demand.

We have a few openings at the end of June and Mountain Vista is almost packed in July.

There are usually plenty of star sightings in Beavers Bend when the weather gets warm and Memorial Weekend was no exception. New Orleans Saints running back Adrian Peterson was seen at many locations near Broken Bow Lake.

Picture of Adrian Peterson dining in Beavers Bend

Peterson is pictured above with my lifetime pal, Skip Copeland. Skip owns the new Rolling Fork Takery restaurant in Hochatown. He and wife, Shellye, will make a dramatic impact on the dining scene in Beavers Bend.

Rolling Fork is just north of Girls Gone Wine to the right. It will be open in the next few weeks. Trust me, you’ve never seen anything like this concept in Beavers Bend. Great organic food, live music and great people.

Summer Beavers Bend Cabins

Our views and upscale amenities continue to make Mountain Vista a very popular cabin choice in Beavers Bend. We’ve never felt the need to gouge guests with cleaning, insurance and incidental fees. Others charge top-dollar for an armful of firewood…ours is free.

Many cabin companies will bill you $40 or more for generic s’mores. We offer high-end packaged kits at no charge

A plethora of property managers now own many cabins in Beavers Bend. Mountain Vista remains different. It’s truly our vacation home.

You deal with us, the owners, when reserving our property. We’re not managing 50-80 other cabins.

Thousands read our blog each month and it’s very unpopular with some…those charging you needless cabin add-on fees.

Contact us if we can help market your luxury Broken Bow cabin. Our three-decades of media and marketing experience can help accentuate your property. Are you receiving proper professional video and social media exposure?

Mountain Vista Horseshoes

Mountain Vista Horseshoes

Our new Beavers Bend horseshoe pit has already been a huge hit with guests! Recent Mountain Vista visitors said they spent tons of time throwing shoes last weekend.

The beautiful new custom pit was installed last week with “Mountain Vista”  ingrained on the box.

Solar lights have been installed in case the battle for ringers goes past dusk. The Mountain Vista horseshoe pit receives additional light from the second level of the cabin. Seats are situated around the pit to provide relaxation in case of a grueling match.

Mountain Vista Horseshoes

The history of horseshoes dates back to the second century. Here’s more than you’ve ever wanted to know about the sport!  You’ll be able to see the Kiamichi Mountains from the Mountain Vista horseshoe pit.

Mountain Vista Horseshoes

When choosing a luxury rental cabin in Beavers Bend State Park there are a few things to consider…

  • How close is the nearest cabin?
  • How close will the nearest live music be cranking at night?
  • Does the cabin charge resort fees?
  • Does the cabin charge cleaning fees?
  • Does the cabin charge insurance fees?

Do a little homework before visiting a Broken Bow luxury cabin and you’ll have a much better experience. Also pay attention the popular “firewood charge.” If $100 for a few sticks of wood sounds like a great deal to you, go for it!

We never charge these add-on fees at Mountain Vista. The firewood is free along with s’mores kits and a plethora of other upscale amenities.

Mountain Vista has a few days open next week, but hardly any weekends available until August.

Make sure to download our Beavers Bend app. All the local hot spots are on it along with our blog. We created the app with Mobile Roadie in Los Angeles. Mobile Roadie does many apps for rock stars, including Madonna and The Rolling Stones.

Thousands read our blog monthly. The tourists love it… cabin property management companies charging you ridiculous add-on fees hate it.

Enjoy the new Mountain Vista horseshoe pit and please remember to wager responsibly!
