If you are looking for Beavers Bend Spring Break tips, you have come to the right place!

Broken Bow luxury cabins are packed for two weeks every March. Most schools in Oklahoma and Texas have separate Spring Break weeks. This is always the official kickoff to a busy tourist season in Beavers Bend State Park.

It is tough to fit in all the activities available in our area in only a few days. Hopefully these Beavers Bend Spring Break tips will enhance your stay in the Kiamichi Mountains.

1. Download the Beavers Bend App we created. It gives you loads of information and local tourist tips. Nearly every phone number or website you will need is located on the app. We also give our thousands of app fans periodic VIP specials.

2. Drive the speed limit. Law enforcement will be out in droves on Broken Bow Lake, in town and throughout Beavers Bend State Park. No heavy-footing the gas pedal, thus forcing you to contribute to the Broken Bow Municipal coffers!

3. Visit Adam and Eve’s Coffee House. We love this place! They feature tremendous coffee along with great breakfast and lunches. There is no place in Broken Bow that offers better service. This coffee shop would be a huge hit in Oklahoma City or Dallas.

4. Hire “The Broken Bow Lake Guide.”  Bryce Archey is the most popular guide in the area. I enjoyed a few outings with him last year and have more booked for 2015. 

5. Eat at Shady Oaks Restaurant. They have the best burgers in Beavers Bend. Their catfish dinner is tremendous.

6. Visit Girls Gone Wine. This popular winery is a huge hit with Broken Bow tourists. They feature a variety of wines and you can even make your own batch. 

7. Hike the David Boren Trail. The trail features scenic bluffs and terrain to challenge the novice or experienced hiking enthusiast. 

8. Play Cedar Creek Golf Course. This 18-hole gem receives stellar reviews from our guests at Mountain Vista cabin. 

9. Rent a boat from Beavers Bend Marina. They offer a variety boats to suit your needs. Make sure to reserve early and Spring Break is a peak time on Broken Bow Lake.

10. Enjoy dinner at Abendigo’s. This has been a favorite upscale restaurant for many years in our area. We always hear great reviews from our cabin guests after an outing to Abendigo’s. 

Follow these Beavers Bend Spring Break tips and let us know your favorites. Most luxury cabins are filled for Spring Break. We only have March 13th available.

Typically, we do not do one-nighters but will allow it during this peak period. If you already have reservations somewhere and want to stay a day later or arrive a day earlier, contact us at 405-535-8055.

Merry Christmas from Mountain Vista cabin in Beavers Bend State Park! 2014 has been a fabulous year for the Broken Bow Lake area economy. Several new businesses have arrived and more will arrive in 2015!

There’s a new hot dog food truck located near Stevens Gap Restaurant. I’ll have pictures and more info on them soon.

A new winery is being built by legendary female professional bass fishing pro, Vojai Reed. Broken Bow already has a highly successful winery that is a tremendous hot spot in town. Girls Gone Wine is an amazing tourist attraction for Beavers Bend visitors and another will certainly bring more visibility and choices for tourists in the Kiamichi Mountains. We’ll have an update on the new winery soon.

We’ve always admired the tremendous philanthropy Girls Gone Wine does for Broken Bow, OK. They give scholarships to high school students and do earth shaking work for rescue dogs in the  area with their b’ARK wine.

Sherri and I have been involved in AKC Dog Shows for years and have a top-40 nationally ranked Champion Show Dog. Their love for our four-legged pals really touches our hearts. Thanks for your great work Rhonda, Michelle and Chandra! Make sure you visit Girls Gone Wine on your next trip to Beavers Bend State Park.

Renting Beavers Bend Cabins: 5 Things You Need To Know

cabinnightphoto

There are hundreds of luxury rental cabins in Beavers Bend State Park. How do you choose the one that is right for you? Renting Beavers Bend Cabins: 5 Things You Need To Know:

1. Make sure you are staying in a secluded cabin. Many cabin websites do not indicate there is another cabin only a few feet away. 

2. Do not pay “extra insurance” charges. This is just a ploy to gouge you for more money.

3. Do not get “taken to the cleaners!” Never pay “cleaning fee” charges when booking your cabin. This is a new trick that has emerged recently in Beavers Bend. Leave the cabin tidy upon departure or an extra charge should be expected.

4. If a great view is important to you, make sure you will have one. You do not want to be looking out the window at the Jones’ family reunion going on next door.

5. Make sure you will be getting the “Real McCoy.” Validate that all cabin website pictures are truly what you will be experiencing. Other cabin websites continue to fraudulently use our famed 20-mile cabin view for marketing purposes. This is false advertising. Do a little homework and make sure the cabin marketing you see online is ethical and true.

Many cabin rental companies have 40-50 properties. It is virtually impossible to not just be “another renter” under these conditions. It is extremely difficult to provide a personalized touch when a company has hundreds of people checking-in at 3:00 p.m. on the same day!

Follow these five tips and you will greatly enhance the chances of having a memorable Beavers Bend State Park/Broken Bow Lake luxury cabin experience.

Contact us at Mountain Vista cabin in Broken Bow, OK if we can help plan your next trip to beautiful Southeastern Oklahoma. There is a reason why 2-million tourists visit our area annually. Come see for yourself!
