  • Our favorite family getaway!!!

    "We have booked our second stay at the cliff house! We were so pleased with the cleanliness of the house and the remodels they have done are great! The house is open and has plenty of room for the whole family (plus a few friends of course)! We will continue to have our yearly vacation here as long as it's available!!"

  • Our favorite vacation

    "We have been coming here for several years and love it. Donna , David, and their staff are wonderful. The view is spectacular. The cabins are beautiful and well stocked. Love having the boat dock right there on the property. The grandkids love the water and tubing on the pristine lake. Fishing with "Joe Farkas" has been great-another successful year catching stripers. They reopened the Horizon restaurant which has a beautiful view of the lake and the food was very good. Looking forward to our stay next summer!"

    "We loved our stay! There was plenty of room to spread out. The hot tub was wonderful, the view super and the TV's even had 60+ channels so my husband could watch the K-State bowl game. Thanks for a great weekend!!"

    "Just returned from a weekend at side B---it was fantastic!!! My husband and I along with our youngest son and his wife spent the weekend here. The cabin setting was lovely with a great view of the river in a peaceful location. It was well stocked, very clean and had everything we could have asked for. The cabin is in a good location, as it is close to town, restaurants, the caverns, etc. Brenda was easy to deal with and always answered her phone with a quick response to our questions. We definitely plan on returning to enjoy this place and would highly recommend it anyone. All of our Cajun friends want to come and along with all the crawfish, gumbo and boudin we need for our next stay. Brenda, thanks for ordering up such ideal weather, we enjoyed a low of 50 and the highs were only in the mid 70's"

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.
