  • Great for family gathering!

    "My siblings and I along with our mother gathered with our spouses for a weekend getaway. This was the first time we were all in one place at the same time for an extended amount of time and the lodge was absolutely perfect! We had plenty of room to relax and not feel crowded. The back porch was wonderful. We gathered at the fire pit each night and enjoyed a Bon fire. Lots of laughing and storytelling took place! I will definitely contact Bill and Sondra again to stay in the lodge if we make it back that way!"

  • Fun weekend getaway

    "This place was a great getaway for our family. We met up with family from south Louisiana and enjoyed a beautiful weekend on the lake. We didn't have any issues with the house at all. We rented kayaks and fished on the lake. I hope we get to go next summer!"

  • Heavenly view!

    "Sunsets and sunrises go on forever on the balcony. Perfect blend of amenities and yet still a cabin feel. You will be drawn to the view of the white river. Sounds of nature with a fresh cup of coffee in the morning will melt away the stress. My family and I have stayed here three times. Carla and Louis are the sweetest people. Very close to town though you feel very secluded!"

  • Our Family White River Adventure

    "We had a wonderful weekend, perfect location, perfect weather, and perfect accomadations. Fishing (serious fishing anyway) was a little slow but that could have been due to our "live handicaps". This was more of a "end of season" family get away and that is what it was! We had several small children and while adults attempted some fishing from the banks the kids played on the bank from the time they got up in the morning until late in the afternoon. Untangled more lines than you could count. We took family group photos with the bluffs in the background. The property was clean and very well maintained, everything one would need was available. There was a huge lady bug hatch that caused quite a stir one afternoon but that just added to the weekend. Enjoyed the fire pit. We had a wonderful time and would love to come back again. May have to consider and additional trip for adults only and "serious" fishing."

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.
