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.

Here’s an article from The Oklahoman & NewsOK’s Ed Godfrey on our fantastic fly fishing in Beavers Bend.
Visit us at Mountain Vista Cabin, the fly fishing is usually fantastic over the next several months. There’s only one thing better than catching a huge Mountain Fork trout…That’s eating them for dinner!
Here’s an “Albino Trout” one of our Mountain Vista guests landed.
