  • Relaxing and beautiful...perfect vacation home!

    "It’s so easy to do a review on the Lake Cortez house! My husband and I went back a second time because we loved it so much the first time we were there last winter. Coming back during the fall was very special because we got to see the fall foliage, which was very beautiful. The house itself, no matter what time of year you go is always so enjoyable. The owners have thought of everything that anyone could want. Plenty of dishes, fresh linens, beautiful and comfortable furnishings and a view of the lake that is amazing! It’s just so relaxing to sit in the sun room inside of the house or out on the covered deck and enjoy the beauty of it all. We were lucky enough to have such great weather to get out on the kayak that was available to us and be able to experience the lake first hand. Steve & Tammy also furnished us with all of the necessary information for the surrounding areas to be able to get a complete taste of not only Hot Springs Village, but also Hot Springs and Little Rock. Hot Springs Village has plenty to offer with walking trails, farmers market on the weekend and if you enjoy golfing or lake activities. We even got out on a Fall Foliage boat tour on Lake Hamilton which was beautiful this time of year. However, downtown Hot Springs and Little Rock are also definitely places to take advantage of with the garden tours, plenty of great places for shopping and delicious restaurants, etc. We would highly recommend staying at this beautiful home with all of its amenities and can’t wait to return!"

  • 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..."

  • Visiting family in Hot Springs Village

    "My husband and I were visiting my Mom and stepdad in Hot Springs Village and because their house was full we needed to rent a place close by. This cottage met all our needs and was very clean and cozy. The setting was beautiful and we enjoyed our morning coffee outside looking at the lake. The added bonus was being able to bring our black lab on the trip with us. Thank you for offering these accommodations on VRBO."

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.
