Guest Post-Stephanie Bates, Military Travel


Jerry Isbell

I’m frequently asked to guest post on other marketing/travel sites around the world. Recently, Stephanie Bates of Military Travel Mama asked me for a quote.

Stephanie has a booming blog and I wanted to return the favor. Enjoy Stephanie’s post on strengthening your family with outdoor activities.

Family Vacation: Strengthen Your Family’s Relationship With These Outdoors Activities

Having your kids around during the day may seem like a heavy burden for some parents when their kids are little. However, it’s just those little things that you crave for after some time passes and your kids slowly begin to move away from you and to live their own everyday lives away from your eyes.  

Fostering family bonds even when you have grown teenagers is tough, but absolutely doable.

Being a mother of 2 teenagers myself, I speak from first-hand experience. I’m a full-blooded military mommy which is also worth noting. Being a military mommy meant that I had a pleasure of staying at home during the early childhood and being there for my kids.

Nowadays, I find myself having so much free time since my children have already grown enough to entertain themselves. And that’s fine. It’s just that sometimes I get a little bit too lonely and afraid that we will move away from each other too much.

That’s when planning a family vacation and all those sweet weekend family getaways come into play!

Benefits of Traveling Together

The most important part in strengthening your family ties is to create memories. When the time passes, all those photographs and things you did together is what will act as a safe haven to each one of you and you’ll always reminisce on those with a snigger on your face.  

Don’t miss those!

I know how my husband hates to be photographed. There is no way that I won’t be taking pictures of those moments when we visited places and spend a beautiful time together.

Make sure to always have a camera ready by your side and be the ‘’boring one’’ in the group that always takes photos in (in)appropriate situations.

Do Something Fun Together!

Thoroughly planning a trip was always a must […]

Top 4 Beavers Bend Cabin Rental Tips

  • Never pay for Firewood.
  • Don’t pay insurance fees.
  • Say “No” to cleaning fees unless you leave the cabin messy.
  • Rule Out Resort Fees.

Many cabins continue to charge ridiculous add-on fees. You’ll never be subjected to these guest gouging tactics at Mountain Vista.

Even though we’re in the middle of Summer, you need to reserve a fall foliage cabin in Beavers Bend soon. Scores of cabins are being built close together. The truly secluded ones like Mountain Vista are in high demand during October and November.

August Broken Bow Cabin Special

Mountain Vista features three king bedrooms and acres of seclusion. Our 50 mile view is amazing! Rather than renting from a massive property management company peddling dozens of cabins, you rent from us, the owners.

Only a couple of August weekends remain open at Mountain Vista. Every guest receives free s’mores kits and Starbucks when staying at our vacation home. Unlike many others, we don’t charge add-on fees.

Cool off at Broken Bow Lake in August and enjoy our hot promotion. A free fourth night!

Broken Bow Lake Fishing


Broken Bow Lake Fishing

I spent a couple of days fishing Broken Bow Lake with my great pal, Dr. Michael Bourke, Chief Psychologist with the U.S. Marshals. Our good friend and guide, Bryce Archey helped us land about 90 fish in two days.

My buddy Mike is considered the leading predator expert in the world. He travels the globe speaking and educating law enforcement about protecting children.

Best Dining Choice In Beavers Bend

After a long day on the lake, we enjoyed lunch at Rolling Fork Takery. It was so delicious Saturday that we returned Sunday!

The Spicy Buffalo Chicken Tacos were amazing. Owners Skip and Shellye Copeland have created a magnificent blend of hospitality and healthy food. The were named Yelp’s top Oklahoma dining choice in 2017.

Summer weekends are filling quickly at Mountain Vista. Currently, we have July 4th available. A four-night minimum is required.

There have been several accidents in Hochatown on 259A recently. A few wrecks have been fatal. Please slow down when driving in Beavers Bend.

Often, tourists are looking for a restaurant or road to their cabin and that’s when accidents occur. Our good friend Pam Jackson, owner of Adam and Eve’s Coffee Shop, has been instrumental getting the speed limit reduced in the area.

The Peric’s Return To Mountain Vista


The Peric's Return To Mountain Vista

Repeat Beavers Bend Guests!

We have scores of repeat guests at Mountain Vista and always enjoy seeing pics from the Peric’s Beavers Bend trips. Mr. Peric asked me a few years ago “Can we roast a pig on your property?” I said “Heck yeah, but I’ve gotta have pictures!”

Unfortunately, we couldn’t make it to Mountain Vista for the feast. They reported the trout fishing was amazing this weekend below the dam.

There are a couple of weeks left in April for you to take advantage of a free fourth-night at Mountain Vista. Start planning your summer and holiday Beavers Bend luxury cabin trips now.

Get The Beavers Bend App

Many unfamiliar with the Broken Bow Lake area are amazed at the popularity of tourism in Beavers Bend. The best cabins fill quickly during peak dates. Download our Beavers Bend app.

The app features all the local hot spots and our blog. We offer VIP deals and tips about choosing a luxury vacation property.

Do Homework Before Choosing A Luxury Cabin

Mountain Vista luxury cabin has three king-bedrooms and features acres of seclusion. We never gouge guests with insurance, resort or cleaning fees. Our guests enjoy free Starbucks, s’mores kits and firewood. Resort fees and other incidental charges have become prevalent in Beavers Bend during the past few years.

A resort fee provides nothing for the guest.  I’ve written extensively about this to educate tourists. 

Our 50-mile view is so stunning other cabin companies have used it on their websites through the years without our permission.
