  • Comfortable and Friendly

    "Thank you Gary and Cerise! Our stay at the rental house was perfect. With 4 kids it can be difficult to find affordable accommodations for vacations so the price was great and everyone slept comfortably both nights we stayed. The kids had a blast playing badminton and eating s'mores around the campfire. My wife and I were very pleased with the all room to fit everyone comfortably. Everyone really liked the New Orleans style snowballs (a must if you are ever in the area). Being located so close to the Crater of Diamonds State Park was ideal for taking a short break to return to the house for lunch. The digging equipment you had worked perfectly, saved us on the rental fees at the park and meant we could dig a little longer because we could use the equipment right up to closing time. We wish we had planned a longer trip to have time to take a walk up the street and poke through all the fun little shops in town, next time. We could not have asked for friendlier or more accommodating hosts. You have a great place and I will not hesitate to stay with you again the next time we are in the area. I recommend the Budget Diamond Hunters House to anyone looking for a place to stay in Murfreesboro, Arkansas."

  • Wonderful Getaway

    "My family and I had a really great time at this wonderful home. My children really enjoyed the hot tub, and being able to sit around and enjoy everything comfortably. The home was great, it gave me time to relax and unwind end, being that I normally have a busy schedule when I'm home. I would recommend this home to anyone, it's really cozy and has everything you need. Thanks for the experience and opening your home to me and my family..."

  • Beautiful home and great location!!!

    "This is our second time to rent this house and we can't wait to rent it again next year. We had nine adults in our group. This house is very spacious and we never felt like we were on top of each other. The house is decorated beautifully. Lots of comfortable seating in the living area and we really enjoyed visiting out on the deck with a wonderful view of the lake. Any maintenance issues were handled immediately and Tom was a pleasure to work with throughout the rental process."

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.
