  • Excellent stay

    "Took my family for a quick vacation to the Lake and found this property to be just what we needed. Quiet neighborhood and the lake was a wonderful experience with the boat that Loren provided. The house was very clean and spacious. This house has everything a family could ask for when traveling on vacation or retreat. Thanks again."

  • secluded and restful

    "My wife and I stayed here for 6 nights. Everything was fine and available. Great restful setting, solid satellite viewing on multiple TVs as well. Very quiet neighborhood. The view of the lake and the dock is very peaceful. Bit of a walk down to it, but well worth it! Take a book and a thermos of coffee. Funniest thing was the hickory nuts falling on the deck. Until you figure out what it was it is a bit out of the norm. The biggest problem is that Mapquest will direct you to a gate requiring a pass code. Stick with Rte 5 coming into Desoto Drive and you will be fine. Huge number of golf courses that look lightly used. Should have no problem with tee times. Hot Springs National Park and the Tower should be seen. Boat rentals available for the lake as well. Best to buy groceries in Hot Springs. I recommend the WalMart on south Central....it is HUGE! A smaller grocery store outside the Rte 5 gate called Cranfield or something similar. Anything you need the owner Linda Rinaldo can help with information wise. Bring a college sticker and add it to the window or as a coaster.....quite a representation."

  • Comfortable, Relaxing, & Friendly

    "My husband, 4 daughters and I planned a trip to the Crater of Diamonds. I looked high and low for something comfortable for my crew. This cabin was comfortable with lots of space for all of us. Our 6 yr. old made a nice pallet on the floor with the cushions from the hide-a-bed. I loved the rustic look and feel. I felt at home at all times. Price comparable with everything in the area. No close quarters to worry about. The only negative I had was the inconsistency of contacting the owner. Otherwise 5 stars. Great time by all of us."

  • Nice place, as advertised.

    "This place was very comfortable, as advertised, and clean. The location was excellent and the owner was very responsive when we had a problem with one of the TVs. We would have given it a 5 star rating but the bed in the master bedroom was extremely soft and it sagged. That was pretty uncomfortable. Also, and maybe because the temperature was in the 80s inside, the apartment had a bad smell when we walked in. We opened the windows and let it air out, and then lowered the AC, and the smell was gone. All in all, a very good experience."

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.
