  • Relaxing and quiet

    "I have stayed in Elaine's lakehouse before and chose to return a couple of years later for some peace and quiet. It was a nice visit, the same as it was back in 2012. Thanks, Elaine!"

  • Great Stay!!

    "My husband and I were there to take a blacksmith forging class at Old Washington State Park, which is about a 40 minute drive away. We had such a great time with the class and the lodge. Mr. Jerry came to visit us a couple of times to check on our class progress, and we really loved visiting with him!!! The house is so clean and comfortable. Mr. Jerry and Ms. Jane provided us with fresh eggs from their farm and a jar of fresh figs!! (YUM) I suggest this rental to anyone interested in an adventure (crater of diamond state park, old Washington state park, little Missouri river and a nice downtown Murfreesboro visit)! The house is in the middle of farm land, so you will wake up to fuzzy cows wanting to say good morning:)!"

  • cozy and relaxing

    "Our stay here was fantastic...the casita was well equipped and quite cozy for a relaxing, romantic get-a-way! Although we had a few days of cold and misty weather, our 8 day stay was the perfect combination of sight-seeing in Hot Springs and quiet, hot chocolate, Red-box movie, snuggling days. Jill and Jim have a real jewel tucked away in the forest on Mano Way...the sounds of the birds and the creek running through the backyard are a lovely bonus. The 26,000 acre gated community is fantastic and we tried to see as much of it as possible driving around all of the lakes and golf courses looking for deer and scouting out the water activities available for our next trip. YES we will definitely return, however I think next time we will shoot for late Summer or early Fall just so we can enjoy the water activities!!! As for Hot Springs...the Buck Staff bath house is a must...this 103 year old business has a great thing going...the bath, needle shower, hot wraps and massage are wonderful. Oh and the paraffin treatment leaves your hands so soft and smooth! We also checked out several of the shops downtown, the bath house museum, the wax museum and did the duck tour. Next trip we definitely have to go up in the tower and take the Belle on Lake Hamilton. Hot Springs and the village have a lot of great restaurants also. A few we really enjoyed were Rolando's downtown, El Acapulco on Hwy 7 near the village and The Shack and Home plate both in Jessieville. Back to the casita...like I said it's a true gem...we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Perfect for what we needed. We can't wait to book our next trip!"

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.
