  • Peaceful

    "The cottage was everything we expected and more. It was very clean and Marie thought of all the little extras sandwich bags and toiletries. I would recommend this property to anyone. The view from the deck was amazing and worth getting up early to enjoy coffee out on the deck. It was also very peaceful and quite. Thanks again for a wonderful stay in a place that felt like home."

  • Perfect Base Camp for White River Adventures

    "I recently spent several days fishing the White River, and chose The Trout House as my base. Great home, situated within steps of the river right above Wildcat Shoal. I was able to fish on high water, and would have had easy access to Wildcat Shoal and other spots on low water. Very, very comfortable, with all the amenities. The kitchen in particular was great - everything I needed to prepare great meals. I look forward to going back soon!"

  • Family Christmas Trip

    "My family and I stayed at this condo for the weekend and we LOVED it. The location is so convenient and the condo was spotless when we arrived. It was well stocked and the floor plan worked well for our large group. I highly recommend these accommodations! The owner was very sweet and always responded promptly to my emails. Thank you for making the trip truly memorable for the entire family"

  • B from Tx

    "This cottage was as described but could have been a perfect stay with added instructions to operate the AC. The door was also very hard to close securely. The property is only minutes from Mena and perfect for a couple but probably a little tight for four. I would stay here again."

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.
