Located in North West Arkansas, Bella Vista offers every amenity for an enjoyable and leisurely vacation surrounded by nature – think forest shrouded mountain biking trails, shady walking paths where birds twitter overhead, sheltered creeks with gently trickling waters, and glistening lakes.

Things to do

Sport and culture combine in Bella Vista

Golfers will love Bella Vista. Book an early tee slot to experience the peaceful aura of morning mist rising off immaculate greens and the soft thwack of golf balls being hit down the tree-lined fairways. Or pitch in on the family lessons or “play with the Pros” events to make the most of the welcoming community vibe. If you fancy a bit of culture, explore the history of the town at the Bella Vista Historical Museum. Or, 20 minutes away in Bentonville, the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art has a world-class collection of American art including pieces by Warhol and – amazingly – a Frank Lloyd Wright house.

Activities

A lakeside escape in Bella Vista

Get close to nature in Bella Vista

Pitch out onto the still waters of the lake from your Bella Vista vacation rental’s private boathouse for a sunrise swim or a sunset fishing expedition under glorious flame pink skies.
