  • You won't be disappointed!

    "I highly recommend this place. Very comfortable and lots of room for us...2 couples and 1 grandchild and our 2 dogs. Beds were very comfortable and TV in 2 of the bedrooms. Right on Isabella golf course for our golfer husbands. House backs up to golf course with porch and grill. Nice large patio table for everyone. Also was very convenient to East Gate and grocery store. This was a house hunting/golfing trip. So enjoyed our stay and will tell everyone about this gem. Will definetly use again if needed. Tina was excellent to work with. We got to meet her dad when he came over to put out the trash but we took care of it. He was very entertaining and enjoyed meeting him."

  • 2nd trip: even better!

    "We came back after our awesome NYE visit and were surprised by the patio expansion! Hot Springs offered more than we could take in, once again. And it was relaxing to have a nice quiet place to come back to!"

  • Very relaxing!!!

    "This was our first family vacation and were so pleased we chose to stay at Serenity House! There were enough dishes for our family of five and a diverse selection of pots and pans. Our girls loved the loft area and our son was so happy to have a bedroom to himself, (he usually gets stuck on a pullout). The kids really loved exploring the area and staying up late watching "old" movies on VHS. The weather was muggy for a good bit of our trip, but we were able to enjoy Garvin Gardens which is close by. Besides visiting Hot Springs, we drove to Little Rock one day and I think we even got a couple Redbox movies for one particularly muggy day. The only issue we had was with the wifi and cellular in general...but I hear this is endemic to the area as a whole, not specific to this property. But, in the end, I think it helped all of us "unplug" and enjoy our time together as a family...which is what we all ultimately desire. I would definitely recommend booking Serenity House!"

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.
