Cowboys invented the handlebar mustache so they'd always have somewhere to hang their hats. Save yourself the grooming time and hang your stetson at the cozy Lakeview Lodge in Broken Bow with today’s Groupon: for $55, you get a one-night stay in a lodge room with one king, two queen, or two double beds with breakfast for up to four.
Beneath the wooded canopy of Beavers Bend Resort Park, Lakeview Lodge's rooms all gaze upon the shores of Broken Bow Lake. A private balcony or patio fills eyes with gorgeous views before the lodge's Great Room fills stomachs with continental breakfast. Newly nourished guests can explore the state park's miles of trails, swing through the Cedar Creek golf course's 18 holes, or attempt to take daguerreotypes of the park's abundant wildlife. Canoe and paddleboat rentals equip stream-savvy explorers, whereas horse stables facilitate equine adventures. Once tuckered out, guests can refresh spirits with in-room coffeemakers, then snuggle into plush cotton robes freshly fluffed by the in-room hairdryer.
Lakeview Lodge sits in Beavers Bend State Park, nestled between 100 pine trees and the shores of Broken Bow Lake. The acres of surrounding forest and only 40 rooms—each of which has a private patio or balcony that overlooks Broken Bow Lake and its famous sunrises—give the lodge’s guests a sense of seclusion. In the mornings, there’s a complimentary continental breakfast served beside the fireplace in the Great Room.
Beavers Bend State Park abounds with outdoor activities, including canoe and paddleboating, 18-hole golf, and stream and lake fishing. Twelve miles of hiking trails snake throughout the forest, and it's not unusual to spy wildlife among the towering trees. There's also the Forest Heritage Center, where you can learn about forestry through historical documents, antique forestry tools, and wooden art.
Just a few miles from the lodge is Beavers Bend Restaurant, a rustic eatery specializing in down-home cooking. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served inside as well as outside on a deck overlooking the Mountain Fork River.
