Beavers Bend Photography

Beavers Bend Photography

Beavers Bend photography is a popular activity enjoyed by thousands.

My pal Kurt Boxdorfer of Legend Media Pros in Dallas is a frequent visitor to Mountain Vista cabin and the Beavers Bend area. He is an expert photographer and videographer and has produced scores of videos and great still shots over the years for me. The scenic Broken Bow Lake area is highly popular for amateur and professional photographers. Here are a few thoughts about Beavers Bend photography from Kurt.

“Beavers Bend and the Broken Bow Lake area is a fantastic amateur photographers playground. The colors, textures, shadows and history of the area are impressive and beautiful. A 360-degree arc from a stationary point offers a number of different opportunities to not only snap a great shot, but experiment with lenses, exposures picture sets and more. It’s a chance for amateur photographers to really soak it all in without spending the entire day working at it,” Kurt said.

If you are a professional photographer, the Kiamichi Mountain area in Beavers Bend offers limitless possibilities to practice your craft according to Kurt.

 “If you want to see a pro photographer’s eyes pop like a Paparazzi’s red carpet flash, drop them off in the Beavers Bend. The area has everything. A wide texture and color palette and hills that rise and descend rapidly through a varied terrain. It’s also a living landscape of trees, plants, birds, animals and wildlife…a pro photographers dream ecosphere. You’ll want to make sure you bring plenty of batteries and lenses because you’ll have a blast,” he proclaimed.

Kurt is also an accomplished author and his book will help your presentation and speaking skills. He has decades of experience behind the lens and knows how to make you more comfortable in a public setting. Contact him at Legend Media Pros in Dallas if you need video production or photography.

Broken Bow Christmas Cabins

Broken Bow Christmas Cabins

Broken Bow Christmas cabins are in high demand every year because Beavers Bend is a great place to enjoy the holiday season!

There are a few things to consider when searching for Broken Bow Christmas cabins; Does the cabin management company decorate the cabin so you will be able to get in the “Holiday Spirit?”.

Most people staying in Broken Bow Christmas cabins do not want to bother with the hassle of bringing their own decorations. Beavers Bend cabin management companies or owners must foot the bill for decorating cabins… and that does not happen often. Make sure your cabin will be decorated for the holidays.

Broken Bow Christmas Cabins

Do your homework and make sure you will have a fully equipped kitchen with all the extras you will need to prepare a fabulous holiday meal.  Guests at Mountain Vista cabin in Beavers Bend who have stayed at other luxury properties in Broken Bow give us great feedback on our kitchen.  It is always one of the most frequent compliments we receive from visitors. We try and equip it with all the comforts you are accustomed to having at home.

Broken Bow Christmas Cabins

Other factors you should consider before reserving Broken Bow Christmas cabins include:

  • Where is the cabin located? Make sure it is not near another cabin or noisy road. Also verify the addition. Is it an upscale area or in close proximity to a residential area? You do not want to rent a cabin in eyeshot of a trailer park. This happens to people frequently!
  • You get what you pay for. If the rental rate on your luxury cabin seems too good to be true, it probably is. If you find a “cheap” deal, especially when searching for Broken Bow Christmas cabins, watch out. You will be in store for a surprise present at checkout.
  • Add-on fees. You will not be in the “Yuletide Spirit” after seeing your credit card jammed with extra charges for firewood, insurance and cleaning. We never gouge guests with these needless fees at Mountain Vista luxury cabin in Beavers Bend.

 We have enjoyed another tremendous year at Mountain Vista. Our calendar is packed for the holiday season. The popularity and demand to stay in our vacation home has increased far beyond our wildest dreams. Only two weekends remain available this year. Reservations for 2015, including Spring Break and holidays are already being booked.

There are many great Broken Bow Christmas cabins that offer a variety of amenities and price ranges. Choose the one that is right for you. But make sure to do your homework.

Cedar Creek Golf Course In Broken Bow, OK

Cedar Creek Golf Course, Broken Bow

“I’ve heard great things about Cedar Creek Golf Course in Broken Bow, OK but never played it.” I hear this often from tourists who plan to visit Beavers Bend State Park and Broken Bow Lake.

The course is not simply nice…it’s phenomenal. I’ve been on the best courses in Dallas, Tulsa and Oklahoma City. None have the scenic views of this pristine trail. If this were a private course in a metropolitan area, it would be very expensive.

IMG_1187

Nestled at the end of a beautiful, winding road a few miles north of Beavers Bend State Park and Broken Bow Lake, this Southeastern Oklahoma gem will steal your heart and become your new favorite course.

I visited with course superintendent, Kurt Adams, about a week ago while visiting our vacation home, Mountain Vista Cabin in Beavers Bend. I enjoyed meeting him…great guy and he really cares about the visitor experience at Cedar Creek.

He keeps the pro shop in great shape and the course looked magnificent. Narrow fairways, towering pines and finely tuned greens make Cedar Creek Golf Course in Broken Bow, OK a popular attraction for locals and tourists.

Cedar Creek Golf Course

Our cabin guests have enjoyed many rounds on the course for years. The great thing about Cedar Creek is it’s very inexpensive to play.

Best Broken Bow Luxury Cabins

The Best Broken Bow Luxury Cabin

If you are searching for the best Broken Bow luxury cabins in Beavers Bend State Park, there are many “Best Choices” depending on your requirements.

If you have lots of children, bunk beds may be a cabin feature that resonates with you. Our Mountain Vista cabin is a great fit for children, but we intentionally do not have bunk beds in our vacation home.

Bunk beds would be too tight of a fit for our friends who visit Mountain Vista cabin with us. Our acreage and walking trails around the cabin make it a great place for children to explore while enjoying the scenery in Beavers Bend.

When shopping for a luxury cabin in Broken Bow, OK, there are several factors that you should consider before making a reservation:

1. Make sure you will receive personalized attention if needed. If a company is renting 30-50 luxury cabins, how quickly do you think they can respond to you if you are having trouble starting the hot tub?

2. Even if you have reserved a cabin in an upscale addition such as ours in Southern Hills, chances are you may be only feet away from a noisy road. Our Mountain Vista sits high atop a huge hill, away from the traffic and on many acres of private property.

3. Be aware of hidden charge scams.  Many cabin management companies charge extra for firewood, insurance and cleaning. Never pay these charges…take your business elsewhere.

Our September promotion at Mountain Vista gives you $100/night off on Sunday’s -Thursday’s. Take advantage of this special opportunity to see one of Beavers Bend’s best luxury cabins at a discounted rate.

We are only a couple of months away from fall foliage season near Broken Bow Lake. Make sure to reserve your October and November cabin dates soon. The views from our deck are amazing during autumn.

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!
