    "Very clean, comfortably furnished and nicely located- my girlfriends and I had a wonderful weekend. The home has all the basics you will need (condiments, pots,pans, dishes, towels, bedding, etc.). The owner was great to work with too. I will be back with my husband and teenage daughter or maybe again with the girls. Thank you for providing such a great place to relax and get away."

  • Had a wonderful stay with good friends

    "This is a wonderful cozy place to stay with all the amenities one would need. Do check the status of the lake when you stay. The lake was at it's low state, which wasn't as pretty as it should have been. Luckily we went at the time of year when lake activity wasn't a necessity. The fireplace heats the whole house sufficiently. We cooked steaks on the BBQ pit supplied and that worked real well. We will definitely be staying here again."

  • Diamond in the Rough

    "Our stay at the Duck's Nest was wonderful! Step inside to a cozy little retreat that is very clean, well maintained and has newer furniture. There is a wonderful full length screened back porch facing the river. We slept in a king sized bed on the porch during a thunderstorm….what an amazing experience! The area also boasts a picnic table for outdoor dining. Although we don't fish, it looks like a perfect spot (comes with it's own dock) to try your luck. I would highly recommend these accommodations and we will definitely be going back. The owner is a very nice woman who goes out of her way to make sure you have all the comforts necessary to enjoy a time away. She also furnishes homemade waffle batter and and absolutely out of this world homemade syrup for your first breakfast. Don't judge this little gem by it's cover or you will surly miss a very pleasurable experience."

  • Family Reunion

    "We rented this nicely furnished home for 5 days and 4 nights. The layout of the kitchen and living room lend themselves to entertaining. I love to cook and so was still able to feel apart of all the goings on. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and cookware. My husband and I enjoyed morning coffee on the deck. The view of the lake is spectacular. It was so fun listening to the birds and seeing cardinals once again. Our grandsons and son had a great time swimming in the lake. My youngest grandson counted all 209 steps down to the lake. There is a well stocked grocery store on the north side of town. One night we all watched the DVD "On Golden Pond". It just seemed so appropriate to this home. Thanks so much for sharing this with all of us."

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.
