Recent Arkansas reviews

  • An amazing place and awesome owner.

    "We had a stellar family vacation here! The accommodations were beautiful and home like. We enjoyed having meals on the balcony, swimming in the pool and enjoying the views walking by the lake. The beds were very comfortable. It was a great location. Best of all the owner communicated amazingly. She was very accommodating and helpful. I really can't say enough good things about our experience! -Brenna"

  • Our best vacation

    "My family stayed here and we were extremely pleased with the home. The description is completely accurate and the owners were very helpful. I am confused about the previous review. The house was very clean. The pool was refreshing but definitely not cold. We enjoyed being on the lake. We were able to fish off the dock since it's not in a area with heavy traffic. I will be visiting Annie again soon and would recommend her home to any of my friends."

  • Wonderful vacation spot in the woods to enjoy nature!!!

    "We were looking for an affordable, serene location to spend our 30th anniversary at, and we found it!!! Your beautiful and comfortable studio apartment (not a private cabin like the previous renter thought it was going to be, but your description did not say it was a private cabin), it was a great location to decompress and relax in the woods with wonderful amenities nearby. We loved the decor, the comfort, the privacy with the mini blinds/cafe curtain, the choice of books and movies, the covered deck (a fully covered roof now with shingles and not the cabana drape shown in the pics). To us, it was even better than your pics and your descriptions. We enjoyed being in the woods, but not too far from places to see and things to do. The scenic drives in the woods and up the mountain were beautiful. We highly recommend keeping a map of the village in your car because it WILL come in handy. There are several beautiful lakes to see/enjoy and several beautiful golf courses as well. We are not boaters or golfers at all, but we really enjoyed the beauty of those. If we were boaters or golfers, this would be a FANTASTIC place to live/retire. For us it was a great getaway from suburban life, and so beautiful. We see why Arkansas is called "The Natural State". The beauty of nature is what inspired us to come here, and we weren't disappointed at all. We had hoped to meet you and your dogs...we could hear them nights/mornings above our bed, but it only made us miss our dog that we left back at home with our daughter/son-in-law for the week. He doesn't have the best manners for staying at strange places, especially if we leave him for a few hours. We loved the sound of the creek below, and of the crickets/tree frogs at night. The frogs were loud, but they didn't bother us at all. We had lots of quiet prayer time in the mornings on the outdoor deck. A great place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning, or a beer/glass of wine in the evening. Also, the village has several churches to choose from for people of almost every denomination nearby. We found one for us just minutes from the apartment. We cooked many of our meals there, to save on expenses for the week long vacation in the area, but there were great cafes and restaurants nearby to dine at for those that prefer not to cook while on vacation. The only odd thing was having to strip the bed and fold the blankets according to your check out procedures, but we didn't mind. Great place to stay!!!"

  • I loved it here!

    "This place is fantastic. Sami's hospitality is second to none. There was a gift basket for me and one for my dog. The jacuzzi was wonderful. The stars on the patio at night make the place stand out easily among the other units in the area. The workout circuit kicked our butts. The pool was very relaxing, and the stars at night out on the lake were breath-taking. You could see every last star in the sky clearly. I can't wait to come back."

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.
