Beavers Bend Spring Break Activities

Mountain Vista Luxury Cabin

A perfect day in Beavers Bend begins with a great cup of coffee and breakfast. Stop by Adam & Eve’s Coffee Shop across from the state park entrance. They have the best cup of joe in Broken Bow. I’ve written about this great place a few times and our Mountain Vista cabin guests always give it good reviews.

After breakfast, its time to burn a few calories and take a hike. There are scores of trails in the area, including the famed David Boren Hiking Trail. Your trail journey will be much safer and more pleasurable with a good pair of hiking boots. I wear Vasque and you can find them at most upper-end outdoor stores. Their soles are perfect for the different terrains in Beavers Bend and they perform great in wet conditions.

Bring your clubs and visit Cedar Creek Golf Course. This inexpensive gem features towering pines and beautiful views, including a stunning lake green.

Broken Bow Lake Duck Tours

Broken Bow Lake Duck Tours

No spring break trip to Beavers Bend is complete without “Riding the Duck!” The Broken Bow Lake Duck Tour is tremendous! This unique concept was unveiled last year and became a huge hit. Captain Kelly Persinger provides an informative and entertaining tour including a historical background of the Hochatown area.

Contact Bryce Archey, the premiere fishing guide on Broken Bow Lake. He has a few dates available during spring break. Bryce tells me white bass will be his focus in the near future. They will be running up river channels during the next couple of weeks. Bryce will even fillet your stringer after a day on the lake.

Spring Break Activities in Beavers Bend

After an evening meal at the Food Network Champion chef’s Moon Tower Bar and Grill, don’t forget to spend time around the cabin fire pit. Many luxury cabin guests have never built a fire before arriving in Beavers Bend. Do a little research and you’ll have a nice blaze going in no time.

Our spring break dates are booked at Mountain Vista, but we have several March and April dates available. Enjoy your Beavers Bend spring break activities and contact us at Mountain Vista. We’ll be happy to help plan you next luxury cabin getaway!

5 Things To Never Pay For In Beavers Bend

5 Things To Never Pay For In Beavers Bend

There are 5 things to never pay for in Beavers Bend when staying at a luxury cabin rental.

2016 has arrived and it is time to plan your cabin getaway to Broken Bow, OK. There are a few things to consider while researching top cabins in Beavers Bend. New add-on fees keep popping up with many cabin management companies.

Never pay…

Firewood Fees: We left free firewood for our New Year’s Eve guests and they appreciated it so much they sent us this picture around the campfire. Many other cabin management companies will charge you over $100 for a few sticks of wood. It’s on the house at Mountain Vista. Our guests knew how to build a nice fire!

5 things to never pay for in Beavers Bend

Cleaning Fees: This add-on fee began about a year ago in Beavers Bend. Scores of cabin management companies are now charging $70-$100 extra in order for their maids to mop. If you pay this fee, you deserve to be “taken to the cleaners!”

Resort Fees: One of the most clever add-on fees to hit the Broken Bow luxury cabin market in years. I’m still not sure what it means, but there’s no need to pay this.

Restocking Fees: Another cleverly coined fee. Everyone must “restock” their cabins. We don’t charge you for this one either. Ask your cabin management company “What’s the difference between a resort and restocking fee?”

5 things to never pay for in Beavers Bend

S’mores Fees: We provide free s’mores kits to all guests staying at Mountain Vista. Others charge you $50-$100 for a couple of sticks and a bag of generic marshmallows.

Insurance Fees: This “gotcha charge” began in Beavers Bend a few years ago. Countless management companies are trying to play State Farm Insurance agents when you book a cabin in Broken Bow. Like a good neighbor, we were the first to write about this fee years ago. Do the math and you’ll realize it’s a bad deal for you and a great one for them.

There will undoubtedly be more add-on fees in Beavers Bend in 2016. Never with us…Hopefully, the next up-charge won’t result in a guy wearing a trench coat visiting your cabin and asking, “Hey, want to buy a watch?”

Reserve your holiday and peak dates soon at Mountain Vista. Our calendar begins to quickly fill during the next few weeks. Our winter special continues through February…Arrive on Sunday-Tuesday and receive a 20% discount.

Remember to do your homework before reserving a luxury cabin. Take into account these 5 things you should never pay for in Beavers Bend.

Winter is wonderful at Mountain Vista! Contact us at 405-535-8055 or reserve online to experience our 20-mile view of serenity. One thing you won’t experience is add-on fees!

Our friend Chris at The Liquor Station is there to help with a friendly smile and is also a great resource for information regarding local hot spots.

Stop by and say hello to the great folks at the Broken Bow Chamber of Commerce while you’re in town. They know everything about our area and have scores of brochures and Beavers Bend area information available. If Charity, Jessica or Elizabeth don’t know about it, it doesn’t exist. They’re true experts and operate the best small tourist town chamber I’ve seen.

If you’re tired after a long day of kayaking Mountain Fork River or skiing on Broken Bow Lake, schedule and appointment with our friends at Body Harmony Day Spa in Beavers Bend. Our guests love them and boast about their cleanliness and friendly personnel.

Pruett’s Grocery and Deli is a must stop while passing through town. Locals feel it rivals most grocery stores in any major city and my friends give it a AAAAA Star Rating for sandwiches and box lunches.

Visit McCurtain County has a new website and they hit a grand slam! If you’re looking for a luxury cabin in Beavers Bend, this is a great resource.
