Resort Fees Under Scrutiny

Resort Fees Under Scrutiny

Resort fees are under scrutiny from the Federal Trade Commission according to an article in the Washington Post.

We were the first to take a stand against greedy resort fees in Beavers Bend State Park several years ago. Now, a few cabin management companies in Broken Bow have followed our lead and wave the “No Add-On Fees” flag.

Wyndham Worldwide is facing a lawsuit from customers. Consumers are sick and tired of paying needless fees. I’ve heard a plethora of feedback from Beavers Bend luxury cabin guess and they echo our sentiments…

Resort and add-on fees are wrong.

After I began writing about resort fees in Beavers Bend a few years ago, a few new terms were formed. Hot tub, incidental, cleaning…we’re due for a new fee name soon.

Here’s a quick refresher course…

  • Never pay hot tub fees
  • Never pay resort fees
  • Never pay cleaning fees…unless you leave the cabin untidy. 
  • Never pay firewood fees
  • Never pay incidental fees
  • Never pay insurance fees

“Resort fees allow a hotel to advertise one low price but charge a much higher price to a guest when they arrive at the hotel. It is truly shameful behavior,” according to @KillResortFees.

Sunset At Mountain Vista

Mountain Vista is known for tremendous views, seclusion and upscale amenities. We have acres of seclusion and a few friends that enjoy hanging out in our trees.

This whippoorwill’s song kept us company while relaxing on the deck and taking in a sunset. Rather than irritating road noise that many cabins feature due to building near a busy highway, we prefer this!

July 4th weekend has become available at Mountain Vista in Beavers Bend State Park. A four-night minimum stay is required. This open date won’t last long.

Weekends are full in May but don’t forget about our special travel deal. Arrive on Sundays during May and your fourth-night is free.

July 21-24 is the only non-holiday weekend available until August. We have many loyal fans staying at Mountain Vista four-six times per year. Why?

No add-on fees for firewood, insurance, cleaning and Internet. Watch out for incidental and resort fee charges. We’ve added a few new items to our popular s’mores kits and as always, they’re on the house!

Sing a new tune the next time you visit Beavers Bend. Say “no” to the add-on fee jingle others play to pad their pockets.
