  • Perfect

    "Beautiful home overlooking the little red. A perfect spot for trout fishing or just relaxing. This is our 3 year staying in this amazing home. Unlike many rental the kitchen has great pans which made cooking a pleasure. Comfortable beds with the master on the opposite side of the house from the other bedrooms. The layout of the entire home is perfect for families or friends. The property is very quiet in a lovely area with spacious wooded lots."

  • BEUTIFUL AND CONVINIENT LAKE HOUSE

    "WE DECIDED TO USE THIS LAKE HOUSE TO CELEBRATE BEFORE MY BROTHERS WEDDING AND IT WORKED OUT GREAT. PLENTY OF ROOM AND FULLY FURNISHED WITH EVERYTHING YOU NEED. COMFORTABLY ROOMED 12 PEOPLE IN BEDS, NOT ON THE FLOOR AND ON COUCHES. NICE LOCATION ON THE LAKE AND WE HAD A BLAST IN EUREKA SPRINGS WHILE THERE. WE ALSO VISITED THE LEATHERWOOD LAKE CITY PARK AND HIKED AROUND...VERY BEAUTIFUL THERE. BAY WAS VERY NICE AND ALWAYS EASILY REACHED VIA PHONE CALL...HE EVEN LET US HAVE A LATE CHECKOUT. THE ONLY NEGATIVE THING I CAN SAY ABOUT THE WHOLE PLACE IS THAT THERE ARE NO STAIRS CONNECTING THE GAME ROOM IN THE BASEMENT TO THE UPSTAIRS PART OF THE HOUSE. YOU HAVE TO WALK AROUND OUTSIDE TO GET THERE...WHICH IS NOT REALLY THAT BAD UNLESS ITS RAINING OR SOMETHING. OVERALL WE HAD A GREAT TIME AND WE PLAN TO GO BACK IN THE FUTURE. THANKS BAY"

  • enjoyable stay

    "Cozy cottage with oerfect space for our small family. Fishing pier within an easy walk down the hill. Even caught a fish ;). Loved the living room with the big picture windows and sky lights. There's a huge potted live tree in that room that I loved. The soaking tub on the back porch was nice and rustic. You're in the woods so, in the summer, be prepared for the insects. Seemed everytime we got in the car we'd have extra friends along for the ride. Ken, the owner, was friendly and easy to reach. Must stop by Heifer Ranch tgata nearby to learn about their international charity work. Had a wonderful time."

  • Great condo, super cozy and family friendly!

    "We rented this condo for a family visit in Hot Springs over Thanksgiving week. It was wonderful. Very open and spacious. We had several family members over one night and had a camp fire in the fire pit by the lake. The view was awesome, and everyone really enjoyed the social atmosphere of the condo. Will definitely rent this one again! Brian was very attentive to any issues."

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.
