  • Family Vacation

    "My husband and I along with 2 of our 3 older children stayed here for a week-long family vacation. My son-in-law brought his kayaks so we all had a great time paddling around the lake. The house was very comfortable and homey. We home-cooked most of our meals and found the kitchen pretty well stocked. The one thing that would have made it better for me was if ALL the windows had screens on them. The weather was absolutely perfect but we had to keep the windows closed at night so the bugs wouldn't come in. But all in all it was an excellent week and the kids have requested we come back every year and make the visit a tradition."

  • Great Time Had By All

    "Having never rented this property, we didn't know what to expect, other than the web page photos and information. We were not mislead! This is a very beautiful location with a great view of the river and is close to many activities including a Civil War battlefield, Beaver Lake, and Eureka Springs. The house fit our needs very well. Each room was neat and clean with all the modern conveniences and with ample to extravagant roominess. The kitchen was reasonably outfitted with dishes and cooking utensils as well as a toaster, 2 - 12 cup coffee pots (Thank you!), a mixer, microwave, and a large refrigerator and stove. The kids loved the hot tub and our daughter really liked the jacuzzi in the master bath. We used the pool table, too. They even allow pets (additional $75 fee). The owners were invisible throughout our stay, from arrival to literally a minute prior to our departure. Very friendly and accommodating folks. In short, we loved our stay at Hillcrest Lodge and will likely rent it again!"

It was well stocked and the floor plan worked well for our large group. I highly recommend these accommodations! The owner was very sweet and always responded promptly to my emails. Thank you for making the trip truly memorable for the entire family"

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.
