  • Perfect weekend!

    "My siblings and I had not gotten together for many years and were in search or a property that fit us. We had people traveling from Austin, TX, Waco, TX, Nashville, TN, and even Los Angeles. Arkansas seemed like good middle ground and after searching over the available properties we settled on this one. The combination if price/size/amenities was great and we are very glad we chose this property. The financials were straight forward and I promptly received the security deposit once things were clears by Tom (the property manager). There were plenty of rooms and places to sleep to where all of our siblings and their little ones had their own space to themselves. Even with our large group the three bathrooms worked great. Also, the AC was awesome and we were always cool in the house. Check in was painless and Tom met me to show me around and give me the basic run down. Since we were such a big group we cooked all our meals at the house which worked out perfect. They have pretty much everything we needed from pot/pans/flatware/cups/blender etc. they even had some spices that came in handy (they just ask you replace something if you use it all). The large dinner table was great and accommodated our whole group so we could enjoy each other company during meals. The home is directly on lake Hamilton which was great swimming for the kiddos and for relaxing with some cold beer for the adults. I will say the lake is very deep even just off the bank. That being said, we brought floats so it worked perfect. There is a fence with a gate up closer to the home to keep the kiddos away from the water so that calmed the parents worries. We were a short 10 min drive from downtown Hot Springs were we went to some shops and saw the bath houses. We also went to the Nat'l park where we hiked up the big hill. The family that came in from LA had about an hour drive from the Little Rock airport since no flights came into the small airport in Hot Springs. I accidentally left an expensive watch in the room where I stayed and I promptly notified Tom. Tom found it and mailed it back to me without hesitation and paid for the shipping even after I offered to pay. All in all the stay was ideal and all parties that joined us felt the same. We had a great time and look forward to possibly making this a annual or biannual tradition. Thanks Tom!"

  • Best Home-Away-From-Home on the Planet!

    "We always stay at Rosemont B&B when we are in Little Rock. Our first choice is the Barkley cottage, where we have created many family memories over the past 14 years. The minute you enter the cottage, you feel as if you have lived there all your life. The decor is soothing and homey, the layout is convenient and spacious, it is always clean and cozy. I could say the same thing for all the rooms at the Inn, but we love the Barkley best because it can accomodate all our family members. There is a formal living and dining room, a family sized kitchen, two large bedrooms and baths. The sheets are silky soft, the beds are comfy and the neighborhood is filled with beautiful old homes, so a walk is always pleasurable and safe. We also enjoy sitting in the fenced back yard, where we have shared many take-out dinners in the summer moonlight. Rosemont has all the modern conveniences, while still allowing the guests to step back in time to a slower, more genteel pace. A feeling of serenity envelopes the enitre property, as if you are visiting a beloved family member. There are times when we'd rather stay at the cottage than roam around Little Rock, curled up with a book or just talking with loved ones. Susan, the gracious Innkeeper, is always fun to visit with and she goes out of her way to accomodate any special needs we may have with international flights, our pets or grandchildren. Her Southern breakfasts are fantastic---generous, delicious and everything is home made. My husband says "The only thing wrong with the Barkley is when we have to leave.""

  • Best place for a large group!

    "We visited this place recently and its the best to stay with a big group. Its close to mountain tower and hot springs downtown. The place is well maintained and the service is excellent in case of any problem. All the facilities are great and in fact a very luxurious condo. I recommend this to everybody who would visit hot springs during fall!"

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.
