Broken Bow Cabin Rental Tips

I get tons of inquires from people wanting Broken Bow cabin rental tips. What are the most important things to consider before reserving a luxury cabin in Beavers Bend?

My Top 5 Broken Bow Cabin Rental Tips

  1. Make sure your cabin will be secluded. I’m not saying you need to be on a hundred acres with no one nearby.  You want to have peace and quiet when spending a lot of money on a vacation. Often, Broken Bow visitors don’t realize another cabin is nearby until they arrive. Surprise, the Beavers Bend cabin management company didn’t tell you about nearby neighbors on their website! Ask for perimeter pictures and videos of the property. There are scores of cabins being built close together now that the economy has picked up.
  2. Don’t Pay Add-On/Resort Fees. @KillResortFees is a great follow on Twitter. They’ve been featured here a few times. @KillResortFees does fantastic job of exposing tourist scams across the country. Resort fees, insurance fees, incidental fees, hot tub fees, cleaning fees…they’re prevalent punches to your pocketbook at a plethora of hotels and resorts. We never gouge our guests with this junk at Mountain Vista
  3. Stay Clear Of Honkey Tonks. So you’ve booked a great looking cabin online and you arrive to the sounds of this blaring through your cabin.

Make sure your cabin isn’t near a loud bar with outdoor tunes crankin’ until the wee hours of the morning. This happens frequently and unless you brought earplugs, it could be a sleepless night.

4. Know T’s & C’s. Read the terms and conditions carefully before booking a Beavers Bend luxury cabin. If you see penny-pinching things such as “We provide two trash bags. If you need a third, bring it,” punt them to the curb! We provide plenty of trash bags and all the essentials you’ll need at our Mountain Vista vacation home.

       5. Understand vacation and rental home differences. Sometimes management companies will own cabins with the sole purpose of renting them. They’re not true vacation homes. Corners will often be cut regarding amenities, location and proximity to a loud highway. These cabins are usually smaller and very close together. A vacation home will probably offer more upscale features such as free firewood, s’mores kits and non-generic supplies. Our guests at Mountain Vista don’t get cheap paper towels and toilet paper. We feature the Real McCoy’s. Free firewood and s’mores kits are […]

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.

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!
