Summer Beavers Bend Cabins

Summer Beavers Bend Cabins

 The great Summer Beavers Bend cabins are in high demand.

We have a few openings at the end of June and Mountain Vista is almost packed in July.

There are usually plenty of star sightings in Beavers Bend when the weather gets warm and Memorial Weekend was no exception. New Orleans Saints running back Adrian Peterson was seen at many locations near Broken Bow Lake.

Peterson is pictured above with my lifetime pal, Skip Copeland. Skip owns the new Rolling Fork Takery restaurant in Hochatown. He and wife, Shellye, will make a dramatic impact on the dining scene in Beavers Bend.

Rolling Fork is just north of Girls Gone Wine to the right. It will be open in the next few weeks. Trust me, you’ve never seen anything like this concept in Beavers Bend. Great organic food, live music and great people.

Summer Beavers Bend Cabins

Our views and upscale amenities continue to make Mountain Vista a very popular cabin choice in Beavers Bend. We’ve never felt the need to gouge guests with cleaning, insurance and incidental fees. Others charge top-dollar for an armful of firewood…ours is free.

Many cabin companies will bill you $40 or more for generic s’mores. We offer high-end packaged kits at no charge

A plethora of property managers now own many cabins in Beavers Bend. Mountain Vista remains different. It’s truly our vacation home.

You deal with us, the owners, when reserving our property. We’re not managing 50-80 other cabins.

Thousands read our blog each month and it’s very unpopular with some…those charging you needless cabin add-on fees.

Contact us if we can help market your luxury Broken Bow cabin. Our three-decades of media and marketing experience can help accentuate your property. Are you receiving proper professional video and social media exposure?

Beavers Bend Deal Alert

A few dates remain open for fall foliage season in Beavers Bend. Contact us at 405-535-8055 or reserve online.

Our app fans always get the inside scoop first when we announce VIP offers.  Download the Beavers Bend app we created that is enjoyed by thousands.

I see lots of companies posting pictures of nice looking cabins but not indicating a surprise you’ll discover a few feet away…another cabin. Do your homework and demand perimeter pictures of any property before reserving a cabin in Beavers Bend.

We’re only five miles from Broken Bow Lake and a couple of minutes drive to Mountain Fork River.

Remember, there are rental cabins owned by companies with 30-60 other properties and vacation homes in Beavers Bend State Park. Mountain Vista is our vacation home and you’ll see the difference upon arrival!

Best BBQ In Oklahoma

Beavers Bend Restaurant Reviews and Suggestions

Traveling from OKC to Beavers Bend State Park and needing driving directions? Our favorite route is I-40 East to Indian Nation Turnpike South, then you’re about an hour away from Broken Bow Lake cabins.

If you’re looking for restaurant reviews in Broken Bow, Beavers Bend and Southeast Oklahoma, you’ve come to the right place! Our favorite restaurant in the Kiamichi Mountain area is SpannMan’s BBQ in Antlers. It’s the best BBQ in Oklahoma.

SpannMan, a highly decorated BBQ competition award winner from Texas has setup his great eatery on the main drag through town in Antlers. It’s the  best BBQ I’ve ever tasted…And we’ve been to all the top spots in Oklahoma, Texas, Georgia and North Carolina. Our cabin guests love stopping by this local hot spot while on their way to cabins in Broken Bow.

It’s difficult for us to pick a favorite item, but we usually grab a BBQ sandwich and take ribs and chicken to reheat for evening meals during our stay at Mountain Vista cabin. I’ve often told our pal, SpannMan, he’d be a rock star in a major city because he cuts no corners in portions or quality.

If you’re a fan of world-class BBQ, there’s no better restaurant in Oklahoma or Texas. Its a convenient stop for our Oklahoma City visitors heading to Broken Bow Lake. Stop by and tell him “Jerry and Sherri sent us.” He may just have a Mountain Vista Cabin special for you!

We’re frequently asked for Beavers Bend’s best restaurant tips from our visitors at Mountain Vista cabin. We enjoy hanging out on the deck and cooking but here’s a few suggestions on places to eat and grab a cup of coffee when visiting Broken Bow Lake cabins.

We enjoyed a fantastic burger at Shady Oaks a few weeks ago. One of the best ever…They feature top choice beef, friendly service and we’re told their pies are wonderful!

Hocha Mocha Internet Cafe. If you’re looking for a little “Pick Me Up” and need to get your caffeine fix, this is the best place in Beavers Bend to grab a cup of joe.

The Beavers Bend Restaurant is located on Mountain Fork River and offers outside seating. The views outside are stunning. Great place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee. I haven’t tried dinner here but have heard good reports on their catfish.

Abendigo’s Restaurant near Broken Bow Lake is the premier place for evening meals. My favorite is the Chicken Madeira. Try it!
