Beavers Bend Memorial Weekend Cabins

Beavers Bend Memorial Weekend Cabins

When you’re researching cabins in Beavers Bend for Memorial Day Weekend, there are a few things you should consider when trying to secure a spot near Broken Bow Lake and Mountain Fork River.

Many cabins management companies tend to oversell how many people their properties will accommodate in hopes of charging more per head to increase revenues at the sake of guest comfort. If you see a three-bedroom cabin being advertised as holding 15 people, think about it for a second…Would you want that many people in your house?

There’s a difference between “rental cabins” and “vacation homes” in the Beavers Bend State Park luxury cabin game. If you can deal directly with the owners, most of the time that’s a plus. The owner wants great people and a comfortable number of guests in their expensive luxury home. Large rental companies may not care…Some do. It’s usually churn baby churn, get you in and out and move on to the next guests when dealing with many of the mass renting property management companies.  Many will also charge you extra for firewood, insurance and use other goofy, guest gouging tactics. We don’t do it that way. Many will post unauthorized pictures on their websites or not let you know there’s another cabin a few feet away. It’s easy for a picture to make a luxury property look great…Make them show you a panoramic video view of the property. It’s much more difficult to be unethical with this form of media.

There’s still another rental company in the area using our 20-mile deck view on their website! It’s been going on for over a year. Beware of false advertising such as this.  As we’ve told you here before, do your homework when choosing a luxury destination. It’s tough for someone to have great quality control if they’re renting 20-30 cabins, especially during a peak holiday period. There are a few companies who are able to accomplish this task, ask us for a reference.

We’re gearing up for a fantastic spring and summer at Mountain Vista cabin in Beavers Bend. There are many great cabins in Broken Bow. Pick an owner or rental outfit that’s honest, ethical and has a good reputation.

Make your summer plans soon to visit McCurtain County. Our tourist season has officially arrived! Come enjoy the most scenic place […]

KSLA News Anchor Doug Warner Visits Beavers Bend Cabins

Doug Warner KSLA News

Broken Bow Lake cabins have approximately two-million annual visitors and we’ve had many outstanding guests through the years at Mountain Vista cabin in Beavers Bend. The series featuring our past VIP guests in McCurtain County continues…Shreveport and Texarkana media markets along with surrounding areas will certainly recognize this gentleman.

ArkLaTex television viewers invite him into their homes each morning and the popular news anchor thrives on keeping his audience informed, breaking stories and even weather chasing. When he’s off camera, Shreveport television anchor Doug Warner enjoys relaxing at Broken Bow Lake and visiting our Mountain Vista cabin in Beavers Bend.

Doug was a stellar anchor/reporter and popular figure in the Oklahoma City television market for many years. He returned to his home state of Louisiana a few years ago and has taken KSLA Television in Shreveport to an entirely new level. Doug has been a friend for years and I’ve always been impressed with his attention to detail and accurate reporting. Most importantly, he’s a darned good guy!

Doug and his wife Libby, pictured above on our Mountain Vista deck, enjoy the Broken Bow Lake area. “When are we going back? My beautiful bride hasn’t stopped asking that question since our final glance out of our window as we pulled away. Beautiful. Very private. And a high end way to spend a weekend in a gorgeous part of Oklahoma. A great and quick getaway for us coming from Shreveport/Bossier in Louisiana,” Doug said.

Doug is a tireless philanthropist and has raised an enormous amount of money for many years by donating his time and visibility to scores of charities. He continues to do great volunteer work in the ArkLaTex since his move to KSLA News. Doug still returns to Oklahoma City annually for worthy causes, including a popular event with actor Doug Harmon and many other celebrities benefitting children with disabilities in Oklahoma.

Oklahoma City media’s loss was certainly a gain for the ArkLaTex television viewers. Thanks to Doug and Libby Warner for making Mountain Vista their favorite cabin in Beavers Bend! Contact us at 405-535-8055 if we can assist you in planning a cabin getaway to the Broken Bow Lake area.

For those able to take a last minute trip, there are great deals available in January and February at scores of McCurtain County getaways. The weather can be perfect during the winter. Sherri and I spent hours exploring new spots on Mountain Fork River a few days ago. The temperature was in the 60’s and we had an amazing sun-drenched day…in January!

Retired couples and those with no children who can break away quickly, here’s a tip…Check the weather and take a three hour drive from Dallas to Broken Bow, OK.  There are many great last minute deals available and It’ll be well worth it.

“Meet Our Beavers Bend Cabin Guests…” KWTV’s David Payne

DavidPayne_SAHe’s famous in the Oklahoma City television market for chasing tornadoes, reporting on treacherous winter conditions and delivering entertaining weather forecasts. When he’s not tracking a thunderstorm, KWTV Chief Meteorologist David Payne enjoys spending time in Beavers Bend State Park at our Mountain Vista luxury cabin.

We’re beginning this new feature highlighting several of our great guests who’ve helped make our Broken Bow Lake cabin such a popular McCurtain County getaway. Payne was chosen to replace legendary weatherman Gary England, who retired from on-air work at KWTV last year. Sherri and I have always liked David’s style, there’s none better to watch when wall-to-wall weather coverage breaks in Oklahoma City. When it’s 85 and sunny, you’re in store for a lot of humor and entertaining television. If deadly tornadoes or ice storms are approaching, he’s a no-nonsense, rock-solid professional.

Payne, a native of the Sooner State and graduate of the University of Oklahoma, describes Mountain Vista as “an amazing house, we always feel at home when we’re there…can’t wait to return and relax.”

The Emmy Award winner has also appeared on national media outlets many times during severe weather in Oklahoma. We have a great weather watching perch from our upper deck at the cabin looking westward. When Sherri and I are at Mountain Vista, I’ll occasionally snap a picture of storm clouds rolling in or video a massive rainstorm from the deck.

We’re thrilled that Oklahoma’s premier television meteorologist chooses our vacation home in Beavers Bend as his Broken Bow Lake getaway. Hey, wouldn’t you need an occasional break from Mesocyclones, lenticular clouds and squall lines too?

We look forward to David’s next visit and are pleased he always forecasts a great experience at Mountain Vista!
