  • 1st anniversary!

    "My husband and I had a great stay in this cabin while celebrating our 1st wedding anniversary! The cabin was easy to find and very nice and clean. It was also peaceful and quite. Mrs. Carolyn was awesome to work with while making our reservation. She made everything very easy! We will be making more reservations in the future!"

  • AMAZING!

    "Our stay was absolutely fantastic! We stayed here after our wedding at Garvan Gardens- it was very convenient, but far enough away to feel like we'd gone somewhere (and weren't staying in the same hotel as our family!!). We woke up to the most beautiful sunrise the next mornings, enjoyed the views from the both balconies and all the windows, had a movie night, played pool, and took many amazing naps! We didn't believe that you could see for 40 miles before we arrived- whether that is true or not, the view is expansive and impressive!! We can't wait to return- we started discussing when we would return on our drive back to Texas and haven't stopped talking about it the last few days. This house was amazing for just the two of us but we are looking forward to making a trip with family and friends as well!"

  • Absolutely gorgeous!

    "I booked a last minute trip for the fourth of July weekend and for some reason this cottage was available. Literally everything in town was booked, so I scratched my head a bit when I saw this was not rented. I spoke with the owner, who was a super cool guy and he confirmed it was still open, so I immediately booked it. This cottage is something out of a story book. Everything was perfect all the way down to the cool furnishings. I literally did not want to leave the property on outings! I wanted to soak in the chirping birds on the shaded front porch and read my book. I will definitely be booking this again. I already mentioned the owner was cool but this is what he said when I booked the place, "the only requirement is that you have a good time." Mission accomplished! Clay form Tulsa, OK"

  • The Twenty Somethings Birthday

    "I took my son and some of his friends there for the weekend for his 25th birthday. Everyone had a blast. The cottage and bunkhouse were cozy and comfortable. Just a short walk to the water front for boating and swimming. The kitchen was well equipped. Plenty of sleeping space and nice and cool, since this was the hottest weekend so far this year. Thanks for sharing your home away from home."

Bella Vista Travel Tips

Tranquility and Beautiful Scenery at Bella Vista Vacation Rentals

The name Bella Vista aptly describes the incredible scenic beauty of the region. Home to seven lakes and tucked away in the foothills of the Ozarks, Bella Vista is a warm and welcoming community that is perfect for a relaxing vacation. The many lakes attract fishermen throughout the year. All except for two are no-wake lakes which make the fishing exceptional. Golfers have seven 18-hole golf courses to choose from. There are also two smaller 9-hole courses and a family putting course. This makes Bella Vista one of the most popular golfing retreats in the region. It is a great vacation destination for families. You can spend hours out on the lakes, fishing, paddling and swimming. Each of the lakes has a boat launch and several picnic areas around its shores. In the summertime, you can spend many leisurely hours relaxing at the lakeside.

Finding Your Way to Bella Vista Cabins

Bella Vista is a small that has only recently become an official city. It was originally incorporated as a retirement community in the mid-1960s, hence the many golf courses in the area. Because of its scenic beauty, moderate climate and lower property prices, many younger families have moved there over the years; it is certainly a growing area. Bella Vista is located in the far northwestern corner of Arkansas. It is approximately 100 miles from Little Rock and just over 200 miles from Oklahoma City. The best way to get there is by car as there are good road links to the surrounding communities.

Bella Vista Home Rental Options

A great advantage of planning a vacation in Bella Vista is that you will be able to stretch your travel budget a little further. The rental properties are both spacious and affordable which means that you can enjoy a vacation with your whole family. Homes are relatively modern and furnished comfortably. Many have spacious gardens or are located on one of the lake shores. This provides ample space for ball games and outdoor recreation with the family.

The Lakes and Activities at Arkansas Vacation Rentals in Bella Vista

If you plan to go boating or fishing on any of the lakes in the Bella Vista area, you will need to purchase a daily, weekly or seasonal permit from the local office. It is important that you keep the permit on you at all times as rangers may ask to see it from time to time. If you can’t produce it when asked, you can be fined. The only lakes that allow power boats are Loch Lomond, Lake Ann and Lake Windsor. There are no power limitations on these lakes. Waterskiing and Jet Skiing are allowed, making them the three most popular lakes for families. Picnic sites and boat launches can be easily accessed.

Lake Avalon, Lake Brittany, Lake Norwood and Lake Rayburn all have power boat limitations. On these lakes, most fishermen use paddle boats or canoes to head out into deeper waters. Lake Rayburn has a designated safe swimming area and picnic sites. Lake Avalon has a unique enclosed and heated fishing dock located off Tamworth Circle. It is one of the smallest lakes and a popular fishing spot with the locals. Although Lake Bella Vista is officially part of the neighboring city of Bentonville, many locals still visit there. It’s important to note, however, that you will require a separate permit when visiting this lake. The areas around the lakes have numerous trails that are open for hiking or mountain biking in the summer months. Birdwatching along the shoreline is another favorite pastime.
