Weekends are going fast at Mountain Vista. Currently, only five are available until November.

As always, we continue to upgrade our amenities. New flat screen televisions and a gas grill are the latest new items at Mountain Vista.

All water activities are back to normal in the Beavers Bend/Broken Bow Lake area. The heavy rainfall during the spring should result in an amazing foliage season during October and November.

Beavers Bend Continues To Ride The Storm Out Beavers Bend Continues To Ride The Storm Out

Torrential rainfall over the past month is still affecting many in the Broken Bow Lake region. Beavers Bend continues to ride the storm out.

These pictures are once again courtesy of Bryce Archey, owner of Bryce is the only fishing guide we endorse on Broken Bow Lake. The left pic in the parking lot at Beavers Bend Marina shows flooding is nearly covering the top of restrooms located close to the boat ramps.

The right picture is at the Broken Bow Lake dam bridge. Water continues to rise with each passing day. Several more inches of rainfall is expected over Memorial Day weekend. Broken Bow Lake and campgrounds in the Beavers Bend State Park area remain closed.

We hope you enjoy this holiday weekend wherever you are. Thousands read our blog each month and we thank you for the great feedback. We blog to educate you on how to choose a luxury cabin in Broken Bow and promote our wonderful area.

Only a few dates remain open for the summer. Reserve your luxury cabin stay in Beavers Bend State Park soon. Bookings have been intense lately…we’ll have no dates available in July very soon.

Please remember why we celebrate this Memorial Day weekend. Thank you to our veterans who have sacrificed so much for the United States of America. We honor you this weekend.

 It’s pouring everywhere in the ArkLatex. If you have to be in the rain, it may as well be in Beavers Bend!

This song certainly seems apropos considering our recent weather conditions…Enjoy and Keep Ridin’ The Storm Out!

We do things differently than many other cabin companies in Broken Bow. Free firewood is always provided and we have no add-on fees for insurance or bogus cleaning charges.

Remember to ask the proper questions when researching Broken Bow spring break cabins.

  • Is the cabin truly secluded or is there another cabin nearby?
  • Is the cabin near a noisy road?
  • How upscale is the addition where the cabin is located?
  • Why do you charge add-on fees for firewood, insurance and cleaning when many cabin companies in Broken Bow do not?
  • There are no pictures of a cabin view on your website, why?
  • How many different owners have owned this cabin?

Remember to start reserving your Broken Bow spring break cabins immediately. Planning months in advance is very important in order to get a great luxury cabin in Beavers Bend State Park during peak dates.

Affordable Three Bedroom Cabins in Beavers Bend

Affordable three bedroom cabins in Beavers Bend

Broken Bow Lake visitors are constantly searching for affordable three-bedroom cabins in Beavers Bend, but costs can be deceiving if you don’t do your homework.

Many companies are tacking on extra fees of 18-25% in addition to a several hundred dollar per-night charge. Carefully look at the “fine print” before reserving a luxury cabin in Beavers Bend State Park. Lower nightly rates may appear appealing upon first glance, but once you see the guest gouging charges on your invoice, your lighter pocketbook will be begging you to make a wiser choice on your next visit to Broken Bow Lake.

A cabin in Beavers Bend with all king-size beds are rare but at Mountain Vista cabin, we designed it to include all the comforts you should expect from a luxury getaway destination. We feature all-king bedrooms and private decks that boast fantastic views of the Kiamichi Mountains.

Affordable three bedroom cabins in Beavers Bend

Remember, when looking for the best affordable three-bedroom cabins in Beavers Bend, scrutinize the “add-on” charges for extra insurance and cleaning fees. Cleaning fees are included in our price at Mountain Vista.

Firewood is inexpensive for us to provide and always “on the house!” There’s a smart way to shop for a luxury cabin in Broken Bow. We welcome you to visit Mountain Vista soon. We’re the Beavers Bend leader in “No Add-On Charges!”

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 in Oklahoma!
