Resort Fees

Resort Fees in Beavers Bend

I’ve written about resort fees in Beavers Bend for years. Resort fees are bogus add-on fees that can raise your bill at a luxury rental property 20-30 percent.

Maui, our favorite place on earth, has been charging these for years at some hotels. Somehow these guest-gouging tactics made their way across the pacific and landed in Beavers Bend over the past few years.

Our favorite hotel in Maui, the Makena Beach and Golf Resort, has said no to these charges…just like we have at Mountain Vista. We’ve never had add-on fees.

Checkout their recent post about resort fees. Do your homework before choosing any luxury property. Lookout for the “gotchas.”

Our winter special continues through February. Check-in on Sunday-Tuesday and receive a 20% discount at Mountain Vista luxury cabin.

Our busy season for bookings is here. We’re getting numerous reservations each day. Make sure you secure summer and holiday dates immediately. Weekend’s are like gold at Mountain Vista, rarely do we have an opening on Thursday-Saturday.

We highly recommend the Makena Beach and Golf Resort in Maui and are happy they’re doing the right thing.

Fall Is Here!

Fall is Here! Mountain Vista’s View!

Fall is here in Beavers Bend! It’s probably the most popular time of the year to visit cabins near Broken Bow Lake.

Beavers Bend State Park boasts sun-drenched days and chilly nights during October. Gazing into our secluded forest from the hot tub will keep you warm at night after an eventful day of hiking around Broken Bow Lake.

Autumn is the perfect time to gather around the Mountain Vista fire pit and enjoy our free firewood and s’mores kits! Most other cabins in the area charge for these and other amenities in Broken Bow like insurance and cleaning.  Spend a few minutes researching this, you’ll see! Remember to watch out for those add-on fees before reserving any luxury cabin in our area.

When autumn arrives in Beavers Bend, the excellent fishing follows. Make sure to hire a guide and fish Mountain Fork River and Broken Bow Lake. The area guides are really inexpensive if you factor in the money it takes to provide your own fishing equipment and boat. They’re well worth a couple of hundred bucks.

The Beavers Bend Folk Festival is a huge tourist attraction and thousands flock to Broken Bow for this annual event. Cabins are in high demand during this highly popular event and you need to reserve yours ASAP.

Fall is here!

When researching luxury cabins in Beavers Bend ask for pictures and videos of the property. Consider the seclusion offered by the cabin. Many cabin website pictures leave out the fact there’s another cabin within eyeshot. Mountain Vista is different!

Our cabin is on a secluded acreage in the upscale Southern Hills Addition. There are many great cabins in Beavers Bend, but many are a few feet from a busy road or near another cabin. Websites usually leave out this minor detail!

We have no weekend dates available in October or November. Several weekdays remain available to enjoy the fall foliage season in Beavers Bend State Park. Check our calendar.

If you haven’t been to Broken Bow during the fall, get here during the next few weeks! We’re enjoying prime-time weather and foliage until around November 20th. It’s fabulous!

Marketing For Beavers Bend Cabin Owners

 

Marketing For Beavers Bend Cabin Owners Jerry & Sherri Isbell, Founders of BeaversBendVacations.com

Marketing for Beavers Bend cabin owners is often sketchy. Many owners are forking out 30-45 percent in fees for homemade websites and low-budget pictures.

If you’re a cabin owner in Beavers Bend and find yourself plastered on a website with 30-50 other cabins, how can you compete? Does your cabin have a story to tell? Is it being told in a first-class manner? How many times has your cabin been presented to thousands in the past year?

Perhaps your cabin isn’t being marketed at all. No high-end pictures to compete with everyone else on your cabin management website…no professional video to showcase your vacation home. You have competitors on your website, not teammates. Are you competing?

We have decades of marketing and media experience and can help you. We compete.

I’m not talking about cheap looking iPhone video with a generic music track laid behind it. That’s the easy way out. Simply placing your cabin on a website and hoping for the best against scores of others doesn’t work.

Most cabins have a story to tell. Either from the owner, guests or how the cabin was created. Very few tell these stories in Beavers Bend. Even fewer have the media expertise to convey it professionally.

We developed the first mobile app for luxury cabins in the United States. Thousands have it. Our partner is the company that produces apps for Madonna and the Rolling Stones. They helped us develop Beavers Bend’s most technologically advanced app.

We unveiled professional video and changed the dynamics of luxury cabin marketing in Oklahoma. We can do the same for you.

TravelOK named us a “Place to stay in Oklahoma” and Mountain Vista was featured in the Centennial celebration book, “Treasure’s of Oklahoma.”

Contact us if you’re tired of being stuck on a website with scores of other cabins and wondering, “where’s my marketing and media?”

Are repairs being done to your cabin and you’re seeing no invoices? Do you wonder who’s staying in your cabin and you’re not being told? We believe everyone should know the people staying in their own home if they wish.

Thanks for being one of the thousands who read our blog each month. If you have a question or Beavers Bend topic you want addressed, let us know.

A few fall foliage season dates remain open at Mountain Vista. The […]
