Here you can  learn about our Beautiful Bella Vista, Bella Vista Real Estate, View photos taken from around the area, read about our history, find important phone numbers for Bella Vista amenities and businesses, links to churches and and much more!

Bella Vista was, for over 40 years, a planned recreational community created by visionary John Cooper.  Bella Vista was begun in 1965.41 years later, on November 7, 2006, the resident voters turned the unincorporated village of Bella Vista, Arkansas into Bella Vista City, complete with a Mayor, Recorder/Treasurer,  Attorney, and a 5 member Council.

Now we are two communities, a retirement community and a bedroom community for those who work in Bentonville, Rogers or Southwest Missouri. We've very little commercial ventures of our own, but we do have safe neighborhoods, happy friendly people, natural beauty, large treed lots, lots of wooded common ground, 7 Golf Courses, 7 Lakes, 4 Club Houses, RV park, a marina, 3 Swimming Pools, 2 Putt Putt golf courses, 3 Playgrounds, Tennis Courts, 2 Workout facilities, miles of walking trails, a dog park, and a ball park...all for the use of POA (Property Owner Association) members only.

Many of the activities cost for those who use them (golf, swimming pools, work out facilities), but are quite reasonable to Property Owners.  The only reason they charge at all is because our POA dues are only 24.00/mo, a fraction of the cost of association dues around the country and we get so much more for our money!  Keeping up all these amenities does cost money.

Bella Vista is a great place to live! We have best of both worlds...a laid back atmosphere in close proximity to larger city conveniences!

Bella Vista is tucked into the Northwest Arkansas Ozark hills, affording  many spectacular views.  Extensive hardwood forests (primarily Oak/Hickory) weave through the neighborhoods as "common ground", providing space and privacy to homeowners as well as shelter to large populations of wild deer, turkey, squirrels, birds, and other native animal species.  A drive around Bella Vista displays the careful consideration the natural environment and geography has been given in the planning and implementation of this lovely community.

Living in Bella Vista does come at a price, however, with all Bella Vista has to offer in terms of recreation, thousands have found the price well worth it! 

Monthly assessment dues are 16.00/mo on unimproved lots and 24.00/mo on improved lots. These assessment costs help to maintain Bella Vista parks and lakes, club houses, golf courses, community programs and other amenties.  These assement costs will not go up without approval of the property owners, or a court order.

In addition to monthly assessment costs, there are membership and guest fees for golfing, tennis, boating and clubhouse facilities to further help support the various venues offered in Bella Vista village.  Assement costs are so low that these fees are necessary to maintain the amenties at quality levels.

To take advantage to the lower fees afforded members, you are required to purchase a yearly Photo ID.  Photo ID's are only required if you plan to use the facilities and other amenties (golf, lakes, club houses) at membership costs.    The yearly costs of Photo ID's are as follows:
  ADULT PHOTO ID:  $30.00     JUVENILE (12 - 18) PHOTO ID:  $7.00     CHILDREN (6 - 11) ID:  $2.00    (prices are subject to change without notice)
