  • Wed & Stay

    "Our experience from booking to final day has been excellent! Tom, you were a pleasure to meet. Thank you for all you do. The home provided a comfortable setting for our tiny marriage ceremony! The weathers cooperation was priceless. The entire setting gave us just what we'd hoped for...lots of room and time for extended family to drop in. Everyone felt at home. We hope to use this home again!, and again!"

  • Nice and quiet

    "An exceptionally clean and comfortable two bedroom condo in the mountains of Lake Ouachita ... part of the Mountain Harbor resort. Very quiet. Almost no other guests anywhere around. Full kitchen with an array of utensils. Wi-Fi was nice and a robust cable TV lineup as well. We enjoyed the deck and charcoal grill. Also had delicious meals in the lodge not far away. Deer wandered by during the dust and evening hours. Very nice walks with the pets. And, it was cool and dry. A nice escape from our Texas heat."

  • The much needed weekend getaway!

    "We had a wonderful weekend in your condo! It is beautifully decorated, extremely clean and everything we needed was at our fingertips. The photos are accurate but don't capture the feeling you get when you walk in for the first time. I felt like I was walking in a home away from home. They have a great selection of movies and games. The back porch was wonderful...I spent most of my extra time on the porch swing. The lodge personnel were very welcoming and were there for us if we needed anything. Be sure to book an appointment at the Turtle Cove Spa. I had one of the best massages I've ever had! Ask for John!! The resort has three pools to choose from with lounge areas. We had dinner and breakfast in the resort lodge and both were very delicious! The breakfast portions were huge! Best pancakes ever! If you have the time, be sure to rent a party barge and hang out on the lake. The boat we rented was super nice and big (they provide life jackets for each boat rider)! The kids loved it, and the lake and surrounding areas were stunning! The only bad thing about our stay is that it ended too quickly."

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.
